This meeting was held at Launceston College. We were able to unveil The Thing!
This is a motor driven by 24V, created by the Launceston Conversions group. Once tidied up a bit it will be displayed at shows etc., where patrons can pull the lever and make the motor spin.
Hobart member Clive Attwater took his Nissan Leaf all the way to Adelaide for the AEVA national AGM.
This was a short meeting followed by a film and a nice discussion on electricity generation & distribution in Tasmania.
We had 5 members attend via Skype which worked reasonably well.
