I think it makes a LOT of difference WHO you get to "hang around" with, ...
and if there are kids along! :o

Try a LEAF-Gathering for a buffet lunch (<$10) at 11:14 AM
at CHUCK-A-RAMA on 186 just East of 71 in Salt Lake City.

Say, on Saturday the 11th of February?

Any suggestions, or interest?

Definitely interested. Will likely be out of town on the 11th.

4th or 18th would be better for me.

I'll have to check out the location of he venue as I am in Utah county.

Being up and over the pass, and south-east, are Park City and Midway immune to the "nasty air" problems of SLC, etc.?

The HGTV 2012 Dream Home is on lot 5 AND 6 of River Meadows Ranch, just NE of Midway, just yards from the Provo river.

Garygid - do you live in SL? It looked like you were from California. As far as getting together, the 11th or 18th would be better for me. Darren might be out of town on the 11th so shall we shoot for the 18th? Am curious why at 11:14 at Chuckarama? Any other thoughts? K

I an in CA, but I wanted to encourage you folks to get together. So, these choices are really yours, since I will not be able to attend.

The 18th is good, and C-A-R opens at 11 AM. The 11:17 was just a ... thoughtful time, but also I was also poking some fun at precision. :D

If the meeting time was a gauge on the LEAF, it might say "from Late Morning to Early Afternoon". :lol:

Yes, I certainly should have given some greater latitude in the Start-Meeting time, perhaps something like 11:16:15 to 11:17:45 :o :lol:

Since Darren is coming from the Valley maybe we could meet at the Sweet Tomatoes in Sandy on Febrary 18th at noon. That would help split the distance somewhat. We also could do something else or just get together for coffee. Kelly

My Suggestion:

Whoever is willing to make (or coordinate) these decisions (date, time, location) for your LEAF-Gatherings in the SLC area would become the SLC Branch Manager.

That person should start a Thread in the Regional Forum area, perhaps titled "SLC Region LEAF-Gathering #2: 18 Feb".

Then, this "Manager" can always edit the first post, and that post's title (which is also the Thread's title), to keep them both up to date, with next meeting location, directions, date, and time(s).

Then, THIS thread can resume being Utah-Owners discussions.

I have found that our local LEAF-enthusiasts REALLY enjoy our Gatherings here, so I am just trying to encourage you there to ... continue what you have started. :D

When you lucky owners on the Wasatch Front get together for your next Leaf Storm, perhaps you would consider discussing a united effort to tell our Utah legislators to give EVs the same $2,500 tax incentive they bestow upon CNG vehicles...? I have contacted legislators, the governor, the DMV, the SL mayor's office, consumer groups like the Clean Cities Coalition, and written several letters-to-the-editor about this inequity:

In the Ogden Standard Examinar: In the Salt Lake Tribune: It might (?) help if the powers-that-be in this state were to realize that mine is not the "sole voice in the wilderness." :idea:

Happy Leafing to you!

I'm liking the Sweet Tomatoes on the 18th idea and I think my wife will as well (she loves that place). I will likely bring my kids as well. Anybody else interested in bringing kids?
