Our first D$W Meet of 2017 will be held on Saturday Feb 25th at the Greenfield Public Library from 10am to about 1pm. Our main segment will be a presentation by member Jerry Kashmerick on his one year experience owning a Tesla S. Jerry brings a wealth of engineering background to the table with the development of his Kashmerick 6 cycle engine that is currently being looked at by the US DOT. But on the 25th Jerry will ratchet it down and keep it simple and give feedback on his driving experiences as well as touching on some technical aspects of the Tesla S.
During the Meet as well, we'll also be looking at some of the new vehicles coming out that will give us all better tools in "Protecting Our Home" as discussed below, perhaps have a Fuel for Thought quiz as well as a general discussion on what the next 4 years may bring to environmental issues and green transportation that will effect our home.
Come and join us for a great time of camaraderie, education, food and encouragement.
Our planet Earth is our home, and D$W has over 48 Meets and over 12 years we have tried to “Protect Our Home” by teaching thousands of drivers to Drive $marter. As our country moves forward in a new direction, 2017 and years to come may put all of our D$W members and friends to their stiffest test in these initial12 years of “Protecting Our Home”.
D$W has never been a political group, but rather a grassroots group of activists that passionately believe that one of the best ways to “Protect Our Home” is with our STEP Program of supporting, training, educating and promoting green transportation and teaching Driving $marter techniques. The rewards for this effort are when the drivers see the money they’re saving and the corresponding mitigation of the effects of climate change.
We all have met the skeptics that believe that D$W techniques won’t work, but once behind the wheel and after hearing the stories and connecting with other D$W members they become believers. All this takes is patience, persistence, practice and the continuing encouragement of each member. So let 2017 be the year of re-committing your passion to D$W and help provide the evidence that green transportation and Driving $marter is not only important but also critical to our efforts in “Protecting Our Home”.
