Whatever Happened to Electric Avenue?

 Electric Avenue - Was an Extra Event, organized in Concert with Formula North, by some of the EV Fest Team, back in 2013, to support the Students Vision of The Formula Racers Being Built with Hybrid, And or Electric Drivetrains. A Selection of EV Fest Exhibitors Attended the Formula North 2013 Event, and were Sub-Labeled "Electric Avenue 2013" as a Part of that Event! They were, in Turn, Supported by the Staff and Team of Formula North.

A Repeat coordinated event with Formula North in 2014 Did not happen, due to Scheduling and Organizing Timing Challenges, and Since has not been Re-Visited.

Additional ideas for Electric Avenue have been Considered by the EV fest Team, to Organize Co-Located EV Activities and Events, along with Other Public Events, but have not yet been developed to the Point of Practical Materialization.

As of August 2020, Current COVID-19 Realities have also been a Strain on Event Development of In Person Larger Events, and the Funding of Such Events has been challenging in the past, without such additional strains, so creativity levels must be elevated for any similar events, and it seems the "FEEL" of an event, like these, with everyone required to wear masks, or shields, defeats a lot of the joy of such events.

Please Review this blog for any updates, in the coming months, as we attempt to redesign these kinds of events, in concert with other gatherings. (Obviously - Limits on Crowd Sizes need to be resolved, most obviously, by the result of Daily Cases of COVID-19 Dropping to a Point of near Zero, for an extended period of time, before such realities are practical.)

Based on the Workplace Requirements currently in Place, of Mandatory Mask Wearing On Property, I can Only Expect that until such Requirements are Lifted, any thoughts or revisiting Events like these, are under an extra burden of restriction, unsuitable for Serious Event Planning.

We May Consider Different Aspects for Electric Avenue, as well, to allow for Smaller Gatherings, at some point, going forward.
