Since Nissan will do the firmware upgrade at your home, wouldn't it be great if someone from the dealership attended and performed the upgrade at the event to all that needed it. I would bet it would be far easier to do a dozen cars in one go rather than us going to the dealer independently.

We are finishing the 18th month of our "SoCal" Gatherings.

I have been the acting "Branch Manager", and I am willing to share our experiences with you.

You have taken the most difficult step: organizing the first Gathering.

After that, you just keep doing it, with variations to suit the circumstances.

Here, I have been really well blessed with a great "family" of bright, kind, caring LEAF-friends.

SUCCESS! Our 1st Colorado Leaf Meet. I want to send out a thank you to all who participated. It was good to meet everyone and to trade thoughts, ideas, etc. Here are two pictures that Walgreens took and printed for us.

Another shout out goes to Walgreens for allowing us to sip the electric nectar while we were there. Until next time.

Congrat on your first gathering.
Gary provided some info on the success of LEAF gatherings. There is another key element to its success for the future. That is the group needs dedicated leaders (organizer, branch manager, etc.) such a garygid, gascant, tonywilliams, etc. for the gatherings to succeed. Then the gathering needs the dedicated enthusiastic owners to attend. So far the CA gatherings have succeeded.

Good luck to Colorado!

Big Thanks to batzman and GREENEV for organizing this.
I have created a google group : http://groups.google.com/group/colorado ... leaf?hl=en
That way it will be easier to organize events and gatherings. Please join and send suggestions etc to make such meets more productive and fun.
Thx

We had eight vehicles show up. I believe there are only 10 to 15 actual owners in the state of Colorado. With those numbers in mind, this was an amazing turnout.

For the Denver and surrounding Leaf Owners and soon to be owners... below is an invite that I have been permitted to pass along from the Greenprint Denver Sustainability Office.

The event that we have been invited to is called "The Electric Ride". This event is to promote the new Denver initiative to promote electric vehicles. Their website will be turned on during the event and can be found at http://www.ElectricRideColorado.com.

I have RSVP'd and I hope to see more of you there.

It will be hosted by the American Lung Association in Colorado and the Denver Metro Clean Cities Coalition.

As the image states, the event is on March 14th from 4-6pm and will be held at the Walnut Room (3131 Walnut Street, Denver, CO 80205)

Also, as a note for future Leaf meets.... the Denver Greenprint Denver Sustainability Office will be happy to attend one of our Leaf meets....

What is your opinion on having the next meet somewhere else in the city? I view it like this... our first meet was approximately the South East Quadrant of the City. So for the next few meets, I think it is a good idea to cover the city in the other quadrants (South West, North West and North East).

Opinions?

I wanted to be there but my sister was in town and we had gone up to Breckenridge. I'll do my best to attend the next one!
