Christmas Party - TOCNYS Ends 2019 with a Bang

January 10, 2020 10:37 AM | Joe Moore (Administrator)

On the last Saturday of 2019, 30 TOCNYS members from as far away as Buffalo, congregated at a member-owned co-working space in Henrietta.

SPOT cowork's parking lot, boasting 4 Tesla destination chargers, officially broke their record as it was filled with Teslas, with a couple other EV's sprinkled in.





Heading inside, it was clear that Jim S. and his SPOT cowork are the real deal: formerly a fitness center, the huge space has now been beautifully partitioned into various kinds of work spaces. The socializing and dinner primarily happened in the all-glass cafeteria.

      


Dinner was a catered affair with food in abundance (probably enough to feed double the people) and snacks to spare. After a while everyone settled for the main presentation of the night. Presenting the TOCNYS 2019 State of the Club Address, Club Manager Joe M. (that's me) recapped our wonderful year of growth and activity:

Growth:

  • Membership grew 667% from 98 to 655 (200 now in Finger Lakes, 100 in Long Island)

Activity:
  • Local meetups occurred in 6 of our 11 club regions, 3 of which met regularly at one point

  • Over 50 events around the state: Meetups, Car shows, Meet & drives, NDEW events, 8 test drive events partnering w/ 3 different Tesla teams, Supercharger grand opening ceremony, Music festival, Fashion show, Dog show

Influence:
  • 2 Upstate Service Centers (Latham & Henrietta)

  • Contact w/ Tesla teams, Tesla corporate (including Albert Gore III), NYSERDA, NYPA

  • Members: Published articles in local newspapers, 3 radio interviews, 2 TV news interviews

Following 2019 in review, came an preview of what's in store for 2020, the highlight of which being the now active Paid Membership Levels.

Finally, the pinnacle of the night was the official picking of the raffle for a brand new Tesla wall charger. Here is Harry S. (who donated the charger to be raffled) picking the winning ticket:


All in all, it was a very successful 1st Annual TOCNYS Christmas Party, setting a worthy precedent for those to follow in the coming years!

Special thanks to event organizer Rick C. and host Jim S. for use of his beautiful space, SPOT cowork in Henrietta.
