High School Physics Olympics, Two New EV-ents this spring

The Physics Olympics competition is this Saturday, February 26.   Spectators are most welcome!

High School Physics Olympics
February 26th, 8:30AM
Harriton High School
600 North Ithan Avenue
Rosemont, PA 19010

The Physics Olympics features many physics activities including an annual electric hybrid model car event.  Eastern Electric Vehicle Club members will be on hand to help run & judge the event and give a special award to the vehicle judged best-engineered.  Event begins at 8:30 a.m. at Harriton High School, Rosemont PA (near Villanova University).  

New On The EV-ent List for April!

Joe Bonaparte is inviting EV owners to come participate in the 3nd annual Collingswood Green Festival (NJ) on April 16. Last year EEVC members Alan Arrison and Ed Kreibick displayed their vehicles. Lew Ayers was there with his electric del Sol as well.  Joe is using this event as a deadline to have his own Rabbit EV up and running! If you would like to display your vehicle or would like more information please contact Joe at: joe.bonaparte(at)gmail(dot)com or (856) 296-6643

And I hate to plug an EV display opportunity on the same day as the EV-ent in Macungie, but seems like there's one scheduled every year -- and those of you closer to Rutgers University deserve to know that the NJ Clean Cities Coalition ( is coordinating an alternative vehicle fair as part of the annual Rutgers Day event to be held April 30, 2011.  Organizer Chuck Feinberg writes, "This is a great opportunity to show off all your EV's and to talk to students and prospective students (and their parents)about them.  If you have a vehicle to display, please let me know in advance so we can allocate enough spaces."   To get in touch with Chuck email  chuck.feinberg(at)gmail(dot)com

WEEKLY EV NEWS ROUND-UP WEEK OF 2/21 got broken into separate post because it was soooo long.  Dan Monroe of the EEVC is my hero this week 'cause in addition to digging up all these great links he did a little technical tinkering with our electronic transmission system.  With less cut-and-paste to do I had lots more time to read & write!  Being me, I went completely overboard.
