    Hi folks

    It's getting close.... can you feel it? Model 3 production lines going in next week, possible pilot production of cars coming off the line soon.... Model 3 is indeed on time so we're getting closer to that "final reveal" Elon promised a few months ago.

    Given the timing we think it will happen sometime in March so Ken and I were discussing yesterday when we should do another GTA meetup to discuss the car.

    So we'd like your feedback again on a location. Date and time will be decided later. The last meetup (https://model3ownersclub.com/threads/model-3-owners-club-gta-meetup.1499/page-5) was at Ken's business office which was quite adequate but we might need something a bit bigger this time. If we have to we could rent a bigger space but we'll see what happens.

    If you know of a location or a place that could work (affordably) please let us know.

    Anyhow, start discussing it

    Cheers

          Central CA and we all do a tour of the Freemont plant. Now that is a winner!

            Southern Minnesota is warmer that time of year.

            BTW, can we have a key to the names of the people in the photo?

            I had a great time at the last GTA meetup, great company and very informative. I am really looking forward to the next one and I liked Melinda's idea of doing it on reveal night until I recalled that Trev and Ken hope to be at the reveal. Although I voted for the westend again, the last meeting was 10 min from my home, I suggest that there be an option at Yorkdale or at least in the 401/407 area in the middle of the city. Somewhat inconvienant for most but more or less a balence for most of us.

            Hope that members in other cities can organize their own meetings it is well worth it.

              Ken's place worked great. Don't want to put you guys out for cost if we don't have too. Enjoyed the last one thoroughly. It would be nice to have it after the reveal but who knows when that will be. That would give lots of info and lots of things to talk about.

                Maybe a Google hangout during the reveal event so we could all chime in while it's happening. Maybe Trev and Ken could report "live".

                    I'm from London, ON so west end or even Oakville would work out for me.... just my 2 cents... Cheers! Dropped by the Yorkdale Tesla store last Saturday. Great to chat will two of the employees and had several questions answered however due to Ken and Trevor's incredibly informative videos I ended up knowing more that they did! LOL Great guys though and very helpful in many ways. Loved it!

                      Tesla wouldn't allow us to hold meet ups there. It's a place of business.

                      Central Valley California . I'm only 80 miles from the factory ;).

                      (P.s. Talked to Tesla representatives at the Dublin store and they stated that "factory pick-ups will be available for free. Only sucky thing is that only 2 persons are allowed for the Factory tour, which is also free. For my Californian friends on this Forum, I suggest a road trip is a must ;)).

                        IIRC @AEDennis has posted his local owners club having meet ups at stores and/or supercharger locations at various times (beyond the Tesla organized events).

                        Tesla store meet ups (formal ones) are reserved for official Tesla owners clubs (about 30 of us).

                        Additionally, there are requirements for the sponsoring organization (club) to carry liability insurance for the event.

                        Superchargers are easier.

                        As for pick up of cars at the factory. It's a great experience. I did that with our Model S. If you can get 8 owners together, you can block out an entire tour group together (owners plus guests total entire group.).

                          Well it appears we won't be having an official Model 3 unveiling in the spring but much closer to production start in July.

                          Given this news we can perhaps move forward with organizing the spring meetup and perhaps do another one later in the summer once cars start being delivered.

                            @Kennethbokor you want to weight in again on the possibility of using your facility again?

                            I think we're going to aim for an April get-together given that the weather is starting to warm up and the days are longer.

                            Folks , Ken and I are busy on the weekends during April and May is absolutely chock full.

                            After discussing with Ken we're going to try and shoot for the evening of April 6th. A location has not been determined yet so if you know of a place we can use on that date that can accommodate 20-40 people at a reasonable cost please message us ASAP. We're investigating venues in the meantime.

                            Thanks
