Quick recount of the first meetup of the Houston Tesla Club: 8 Model S' showed up at 3:30 pm on July 20, 2013 at the Fry's parking lot. It was fantastic to see all the various colors in person and to meet the proud owners. Special thanks to John Gray who stopped over and provided us all complimentary detailing liquid. After a quick meet and greet, 6 Tesla Model S' headed out to Top Water Grill as a caravan. To say we got a lot of attention during our 60 mile caravan drive would be an understatement. The drive to San Leon was fantastic and we had part of the parking lot in the restaurant cordoned off for us. Again, as we parked our cars, we had a crowd gather around during our photo session. Lots of good questions asked and took us a good 45-60 mins before we all got into the restaurant for some much needed drinks and food. We left the restaurant at about 8pm and not before answering a few more questions from onlookers. All in all a great drive with great company in a GREAT car!
It was fantastic meeting fellow owners and we will be working on a road-map for the future events, how we can make it more interesting, etc. We would love to hear ideas so please keep posting them. We want our Houston Tesla Club to be one of the best ones out there and this was a good start. Hat-tip to Tom for all his help with coordinating the event and Greg for leading the caravan. Thanks to Top Water Grill who welcomed our group and for the great food. Thanks to the owners and family members for joining in.
