On Saturday October the 6th as part of the Metro Denver Green Homes Tour, there will be an Electric Vehicle Roundup from 3 to 6 PM at Jefferson Unitarian Church, 14350 West 32nd Avenue in Golden.

At the bottom right of the home page you’ll see reference to the EV Roundup during the post-tour reception. We want to have a wide variety of EVs in the blocked off section of JUC’s parking lot during the reception. Owners are welcome to come inside for the reception itself and enjoy the free food and beverages.

EV owners should contact Jim Smith at 303-525-1851 or Jim@GoldenRealEstate.com ASAP to say they’re coming. Jim will be promoting the event in his October 4th column, and it would be nice to indicate the number of EVs that will be on display

Old Colorado City, Colorado (map)
9:00am – 3:00pm

One of the last big car show of the year is the Old Colorado City show in Colorado Springs, CO. The entire downtown of Old Colorado City is blocked off for this event and there are restaurants, parks and lots of stores. Our club was asked to attend by the promoters of the show. We already have quite a few people committing to attend on Sunday and the promoters will reserve a good spot for all of us to park together.

If you’d like to attend, Ace Entertainment asks that you either pre-register on their website ( http://www.aceent1.com/old-colorado-city/ ) or print off the registration form at http://www.aceent1.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/2018-OCC-Registration-Form.pdf and bring it already filled out the day of the show. All EVs are “Show Class 8” when registering.

This is important: Everyone from our club MUST meet at the Mason Jar Restaurant (2925 W Colorado Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80904) at 7:00am to register and enter at 7:15am. A spot cannot be held any later than 7:15am so be prompt with your arrival and registration for the show! The show has an entry fee, $35, and is an all-day show. You cannot leave before 3:00pm for safety reasons, but Old Colorado City has so much to do that you’ll spend your time shopping and seeing all the other cars there.
