From Tacos to Bootcamps
13th October 2019
By James Hayward
They say life is all about balance so after a mid week fill up on tacos and burritos it was time for new Sydney area owners to hit a Sunday morning bootcamp. Thankfully it wasn't as much of a workout as it sounds, except perhaps for those of us answering questions!
On Wednesday evening we had an informal meet up at Mexica in Sydney Olympic Park. The event was well attended by new owners with a good line up of model 3s gracing Dawn Fraser and Herb Elliott Avenues and a light sprinkling of Model S and X for good measure. We plan to have an informal meetup on the second wednesday of the month going forward, but will move the location around so that as many owners as possible get to come along. These events are in addition to the great meetups already happening in Newcastle. Keep a look out on the events page and the Member Jungle app for the location of future events.
On Sunday we had our first Sydney "bootcamp", with some members coming down from Newcastle and the Central Coast to attend. The event was aimed at new owners to give them an in depth look at the cars functions, a detailed discussion on charging, an introduction to TOCA and a talk on paint protection by our venue host Leading Edge Detailing.
We had an X, S and 3 on display as well as examples of the TOCA loan adaptors for people to take a look at. As the majority of the new owners attending had just picked up their model 3 we focused on a walk through of that car and charging solutions specific to the newer cars. That didn't stop us finishing off the way any good party should with a Model X dance courtesy of Peter Ross.
Thank you to everyone that attended, it is the groups experiences and questions that make events such as this valuable to everyone that attends.
We will run future bootcamp events for new owners in the Sydney area, so if you were unable to attend or have a car on order don't worry! There are also bootcamp events being held in the other State's and Territories - check out the events page on the website or on your Member Jungle App.
