Ocean City Maryland V3 Supercharger Meetup
March 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
UPDATE: 03/16/2020: As you should by now know, we officially did cancel/postponed Ocean City V3 Supercharger Event, but a few are planning on going, so please help me out:
I still have 21 signed up on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/events/241422780197933/) as “Going”, but less that have “confirmed” (see below). If not going, switch you “Going” to “Interested” and if you are, fill out the form at https://marylandtesla.com/oc-md-v3-tesla-preview/ (I need a count). Remember, we will reschedule this, so do not feel obligated to go now. In fact, it is more than ok not to. But I do need a count.
If you are going, thinking about going or waiting to the last minute to decide or even just interested in staying informed for when it is rescheduled, go to (and fill out):
UPDATE 03/08/2020: Due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and for the sake of prudence, we have decided to postpone the Official Ribbon Cutting Event for the Ocean City Maryland Superchargers. This event will be rescheduled for a future date.
If anyone would still like to meet up, several of us will be staying at the hotel Saturday night and doing lunch on Saturday, a caravan drive and nature walk (weather permitting), hanging out at the pool, and dinner at Fager’s. This will no longer be considered an official club event and those that want to come, we insist, must be healthy and have no known exposure to COVID-19 (or flu) or high risk for disease complications. If you are not planning to join us, please switch yourself on the event response from “Going” to “Interested” or “Not Going”. Personally, I am planning on being there early Saturday and staying until early Sunday. I will be putting out more information soon for those who still want to join us for the informal meetup. Please, the situation is changing rapidly so pay attention to posts for updates. Those not going, don’t forget to cancel your reservations and I will post again with an update before Tuesday, so those with a reservation can make a last-minute decision.
Thank you all, and keep a watch out for a future event when circumstances allow.
