    Here's a unique opportunity to meetup with local fans and members!!

    I'm unfamiliar with the area so if any members know of a public place, maybe a coffee shop?, please let me know. Since I can't arrange it myself it would be incumbent on the locals to help out.

    I will be flying into San Jose International at around 12PM on June 1 so if someone could pick me up and take me to the meetup that would be great. I'm staying across the street from the Tesla factory so I can just walk there on Friday for my tour.

    It would be fun to meet some of our members and talk all things EV and Tesla. Let's see if we can make this happen!

    Thanks!
    Trev

      I am currently living in the central valley, but will happily drive the couple of hours for a meetup. I also do not know the area well, however...

      Trev, I also live in the Central Valley (Fresno), which is about 3 hour drive to Tesla factory, but I'd love to get together. However, I would really be most interested in meeting on the 2nd or 3rd of June after your tour, so we can hear first-hand of your experience and what you saw and any pertinent info.

      I don't know the area, but I'd be willing to do the research necessary to locate a venue for the meeting, which I presume should be as close as possible to Tesla or in-between Tesla and San Jose airport.

      Let me know.

      Looks like a good start to a Meetup.

        Your best bet for a meetup might be somewhere in the large shopping center off of 880 and AutoMall Parkway. Lots of restaurants and such, and just a stone's throw from Tesla.

        I live in San Jose, a little south of where we're talking about, and could potentially help with some of the logistics. As far as giving Trev a ride from the airport, that's a maybe for me, as I have a 9 month old. Trev -- hopefully someone else can give you a firmer answer than mine, but if nothing materializes as it gets closer, I might be able to work something out with my wife.

        What interesting timing! My dad and I planning to take a vacation to California right around this time, because I want to go to the Tesla shareholders' meeting on June 6. We weren't planning on being in California by the 1st, but we have not made plans yet so we are completely open to working around this. It would probably be easier for me if we could meet after you go to the event, possibly on the 3rd (unless of course someone could get me in :) ).

          I live in Pleasanton just north of Fremont, it is about a 10 minute drive to the factory from here. I would be happy to pick up up and drive you around. Just meeting you and talking about the Model 3 would wonderful, even before the event.
          We could setup a meeting place at any of a large number of eating places or we could meet at my house.

            Interested... and if JohnE has conflicts, I can drive you around that day!

            UPDATE: Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley is very close to the Tesla Fremont factory (0.9 miles walking). Depending how many are going to show up, this could be a meeting location.

                Lots of traffic at that location... especially in the parking lot... :p

                Perhaps the nearest supercharger location.

                  If you Central Valley guys are all diving ICE to get to the meetup, perhaps carpool and minimize the gas use for this meetup. :cool: Just a thought. :)

                      Thanks for all the feedback. Let's keep this going as we get nearer, things should materialize.

                      @SeasonedTech and @John Edighoffer PM me (conversions) your phone or text details so I have it on hand.

                      The meet up can be Thursday afternoon, evening or Friday evening after the event finishes. I'm flying back to Toronto Saturday evening and I'd like to take in some sights in the morning and early aft if I can as I've always wanted to see the Bay Area, it's my first visit!

                      I was just looking at the map since I'm staying across the street from the factory and there's a nice Mexican restaurant here we could do a hang out in

                      I would love to see a meetup after your tour. When time does the event start and end?

                      I'm on the 9am factory tour on June 2. Model 3 viewing is at 10:30am then lunch and q&a with Franz at 1pm.

                      Please remember, this event will be under NDA so I won't be able to talk about the cars specifics

                        I'm pretty upset, it looked like I had a solid opportunity to go as someones guest, but I haven't heard from them in a few days . I'm thinking I may have been booted from the spot. I was so so so pumped.
                        Oh well my model 3 budget just got a 1k bump then. Between my flight $450, "donating" $200 for the guest ticket to help cover the person that had the invite flight, food and other expenses... well I'll just round up to 1k. The money will still go to my Tesla experience then.

                        Trev if you can't take pics, you better paint the most beautiful and descriptive pics with your words
