What a great turn-out of Florida reservation holders!
We had a super time. Tesla and the Sarasota Yacht Club were terrific hosts.
Here's a photo with a few of our club members with our new Florida Store manager.

Congressman Vern Buchanan (R-FL) even stopped in for a look!

I stopped the Congressman, shook his hand, and said something like, "Congressman, I hope we can count on your support for electric vehicles", forgetting that he owns a string of car dealerships.
He very diplomatically responded that he supports all kinds of vehicles.
/\ He sold all his car dealerships with the exception of "Sarasota Ford", but he did tell me that he supports the development of EV's in the U.S. primarily to reduce our dependency on foreign oil. (I don't agree with our Congressman on all issues but I do have to say that he and his wife are big supporters of Mote Marine Lab so he has some "eco-cred" in my eyes).

It's always such fun getting together with other enthusiasts. Perhaps if thery're interested in joining the club I'll get a chance to meet them.
Yes, we fell in love with Sarasota 8 years ago. We had never been on the west coast. It took us just one single vacation on Siesta Key Beach, and just two months later we put in our retirement papers and moved down here.
