For our inaugural “casual gathering”, I’ve followed Mark Witt’s suggestion

Intro to EVs Workshop
Fear not AustinEVers! Your emails about the EV Intro haven’t fallen into a void. The EV Intro Workshop will be held Sunday March 11 from 1-3 PM. I’ll be free later if it runs longer, but I think we can hit a lot of the big points in two hours. The location isn’t nailed down yet, but will likely be around North central Austin. I’ll send out an update when the place is decided. If you can’t make it March 11, we’ll probably do this again in the future, so please let me know if you can’t make it and are still interested.
Please RSVP to me at this address: [rsvp address]
