Our first meetup of 2021 will be our regular casual meetup on Wednesday evening the 6th of January. Instead of our usual online Wednesday, we’ll meet at:

Members and others are welcome to come and chat about all things Tesla, and prospective owners are welcome to come and see what we’re all love about being part of the EV revolution

See you there

TOCWA returns to the Drive-ins – 1st December

On the back of the great success of last year’s events at the Galaxy Drive-in, we are returning to watch Misbehaviour starring Keira Knightly and Greg Kinnear.

Next Tuesday 1st December, TOCWA will be at the Galaxy Drive-In Theatre in Kingsley – Perth’s very last Drive-in.

Come and join us in reliving our 20th Century childhoods watching a movie in the back of our 21st Century cars!

Gates open at 6:15 and the movie starts at 7:30pm.

The Tuesday entrance fee is $22 per car. The circa 1974 Cafeteria sells cool drinks, freshly cooked Burgers, Hot Chips and a few other items. BYO stronger drinks.

We will be gathering at Moolanda park opposite 6 Harness Street Kingsley from 6:00pm, before driving in convoy around the corner to the Drive-In at 157 Goollelal Drive Kingsley 6026 at about 6:45pm.

All members and friends are most welcome to join us in celebrating our cars and reviving fond memories.

December Kalbarri Trip

Following the success of our inaugural overnight road trip to Kulin in October, TOCWA is pleased to announce an extended long weekend road trip to Kalbarri between Friday 4th and Monday 7th December 2020.

To make the trip a more pleasurable experience, we will be deploying TOCWA’s “Shark-fin” 50kW Tritium fast DC charger in Geraldton so that all participants can rapidly charge their cars there as well as the existing fast DC charger in Jurien Bay.

In order to provide maximum flexibility for all owners interested in participating, we are providing a smorgasbord of six arrival and departure dates from Friday through to Monday. This means that participants can drive to and stay at Kalbarri for one, two or three nights.

Bookings are needed for each car travelling regardless of how many people are travelling in each car – so please only make one booking per car. Our Trybooking site is hopefully self-explanatory in the way it provides for any one of six travel options to be selected. When booking, please provide desired travel times there and back so we can develop an effective charging roster at Jurien Bay and Geraldton.

Members should have received a booking link – please get in touch if you still need it.

At this stage, we are aiming to limit car numbers to about 12, but this may change depending on how many cars intend to travel on each outbound and returning day combination.

Please email Harald with any queries or join our Ask Us Anything Zoom session each Wednesday evening at https://www.tocwa.org.au/ask-us-anything/

November Casual Meetup – Floreat

Our next casual meetup is Wednesday, 4th November at 6:30pm at:

The Floreat Hotel – Howtree Place – Floreat 6014

There currently are no EV chargers at the Floreat Forum which encompasses the Floreat Hotel, although this precinct is an ideal location for the Town of Cambridge to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the proliferation of EV charging infrastructure.

Casual meetups are open to everyone including those who have never seen a Tesla before.

It’s an ideal opportunity to meet club members and to also see the cars in the flesh which we are all passionate about.

We hope to see you there and look forward to chatting about all things Tesla.

October 4th Casual Meetup – Rotary Como Car Show

Our October Casual Meetup will be at the annual Rotary Como Car Show at Wesley College, South Perth. We have a few owners showing their cars, including the Targa-conquering Model 3.

This year the show is on Sunday October 4th, from 10am, Public entry $10 adult, $8 conc., gold coin under 18 – all proceeds to Rotary and Wesley charities.

Feel free to pop past any time for a chat, and also to chat with the many interested members of the public that come along. It’d be great if you’re happy to stay for a bit, and give those owners bringing their cars a break to go get a coffee!

July Fremantle Meetup

Despite the weather, it was great to see some new and old faces in Freo on the weekend. The “cappucino strip” car park chargers were put to good use, and we managed to take over the roof section of the old synagogue café. We also spent some time planning our next road trip – stay tuned for more information soon.

Lancelin Drive Day 28th June

We are pleased to announce a family drive day to Lancelin next Sunday 28th June.

We will be gathering at the Alkimos Tesla Destination charger at The Gateway Shopping Precinct, 15 Graceful Blvd, Alkimos WA 6038, from 10:00am, before driving in convoy to Wangaree Park, 8 Rock Way, Lancelin WA 6044 at about 11:00am.

We expect to arrive at Lancelin at about noon.

Wangaree park has numerous facilities including shaded playground, skate park, gazebos, BBQs and public toilets. There is also a bakery across the street and an IGA around the corner.

Bring a picnic and enjoy a relaxing afternoon at one of Western Australia’s best kept holiday secrets.
