June Casual Meetups

It goes without saying that a lot has happened since our last face-to-face casual meetup at Mia Cucina Café back in March this year. Between then and now, we have held two virtual casual meetups, a charging seminar and a joint AEVA/TOCWA charging infrastructure meeting – all utilizing the Zoom platform.

Last Friday the WA government announced a 100/300 rule for bars, restaurants and cafes and a reduced 2 square metre rule.

To that end, we a planning a phased return to normal face-to-face casual meetups starting at the Floreat Beach EV charger carpark adjacent to The Kiosk Floreat Beach (Challenger Parade, City Beach 6015) on Sunday, 7th June at 1:00pm. (The PlugShare reference for this charger is https://www.plugshare.com/location/226387 )

By primarily holding this meetup in the carpark, we’ll easily be able to maintain physical distancing while being able to duck into the Kiosk/Restaurant to get a coffee or bite to eat.

For those who can’t make it on Sunday (or like many of us, can’t resist a chat), we are also holding a Zoom meetup this Wednesday evening 3rd June at 7:30. See the members section for the Zoom link.

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.

AEVA/TOCWA Fast DC Charging Infrastructure Update

AEVA (WA branch) and TOCWA are pleased to announce a jointly hosted (virtual) meeting to discuss Western Australia’s Fast DC Charging Infrastructure this Wednesday evening 27th May at 7:30.

This meeting will be held using the Zoom platform.

A direct link for the meeting and optional credentials are available in the members section.

We look forward to discussing progress made in the Perth to Esperance Fast DC Fundraiser project as well as how we can all help in progressing implementation of the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategic Planning report of 2018 (which can be found at  https://api.research-repository.uwa.edu.au/portalfiles/portal/69370878/report.pdf )

Everything you wanted to know about charging – A virtual meetup

Following the great success of our recent virtual casual meetup, we are pleased to announce that TOCWA will be hosting an EV charging seminar this coming Wednesday evening 20th May at 7:30. Like our previous meetup, we will all be participating online via the Zoom platform.

In the leadup to the seminar, we’re looking to compile a short list of charging questions and pro tips that may be of particular use to our newer members. Please send in any suggestions by noon Wednesday so we can compile them for the seminar.

We look forward to (virtually) seeing everyone on Wednesday – yet again clutching a favourite beverage!

Check out the posting in the Members section for the details to connect.

Lastly, for members who missed out on our first virtual meetup, or those who want to relive the experience, we have posted a video of the Zoom session on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSC0Z_4J4zMJO8ZuaXM0Mag

Virtual Meetings

It was great to meet up on Wednesday from our own homes (and in some cases, cars!). Good to put new faces to names and chat.

We plan to have a more structured meeting soon with some of the key topics that came up, in more of a streamed format – stay tuned, and thanks again

May Casual Meetup – Virtual

We are pleased to announce our May casual meetup is going ahead this coming Wednesday evening 6th May at 7:30. Unlike previous meetups, we will all be participating online via the Zoom platform.

In the leadup to the meeting, we’re looking to compile a short list of questions and pro tips that may be of particular use to our newer members. Please send in any suggestions by noon Wednesday so we can compile them for the meetup.

We look forward to (virtually) seeing everyone on Wednesday – possibly clutching a cheeky red, cool white, smooth spirit, or perhaps a wedge of lime drowning in a certain Mexican beer!

March Casual Meetup

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

Mia Cucina Café
Unit 1, 45 Northside Drive,
Hillarys Boat Harbour Hillarys WA 6025

There currently are no EV chargers at Hillarys, although this entertainment precinct is an ideal location for the City of Joondalup 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.

There is ample free parking adjacent to the cafe

TOCWA AGM

On November 3rd, TOCWA held its AGM at beautiful Millbrook Winery in Jarrahdale.  It was a lovely day for a drive out, even for those of us that couldn’t stay for lunch.   It was great to see so many in attendance, and see the car park full of new and old Teslas!

TOCWA’s new committee is – in Alphabetical Order:

Annie Atkins

Rob Dean

Martin Kane

Harald Murphy

Trevor Pinnington

Ken Taylor

 

We are yet to meet and assign roles/portfolios, but we’re pleased to welcome Trevor to the committee, and to get to work on the needs and wants of our members  here in WA.

To that end, we’ll be sending out a small survey to members this week to help us know what are the main priorities for this year – please give us as much or little feedback as you feel led!
