First year of running this event in two locations. We went to the additional location to accommodate the large number of plugins signed up and decided to use EV's as a shuttle service between the two locations giving us a lot more ride and drives. Ran our first Summon Showdown race. All of these ideas need to get refined in future events, but we are happy with the concepts. We had a lot of interest from new attendees.
