Moderators' Team Note: this post has been approved by the Admin but the event is in no way related to InsightCentral.net.

Madison, Wisconsin
Saturday, July 22, 2006
9 am – 5 pm
Part of the Dane County Fair at the Alliant Energy Center


You are invited to join us for Midwest Hybridfest 2006 – A Hybrid Electric Car Show and More!
For more information, or to register, visit www.hybridfest.com.

BE a part of the Midwest’s largest event dedicated to the hybrid electric car.

LEARN everything you wanted to know about hybrid cars and a whole lot more!

SEE which hybrid cars and SUVs are on the market and take them for a test drive.

MEET hybrid owners and “talk shop”.

Yes, Hybridfest is about hybrid cars, but it is also a place for discussion of important issues such as climate change, air quality, and the need for sustainable transportation. Car dealers, environmental groups, vendors and others will be on hand to make Hybridfest a memorable experience.

Your $25 registration fee per car includes:
- Entry into the MPG competition
- Access to indoor technical hybrid presentations
- Hybrid car show entry
- Awards
- Discounted hotel rate
- Free Hybridfest t-shirt
- Free Hybridfest goodie bag
- Special discounted price for Dane County Fair Tickets
- Ice cream social for registrants who arrive Friday evening
Register for Hybridfest by July 12th to gain access to all of these special activities and benefits available only to Registered Attendees.

As a registered attendee you can also purchase a Boxed Lunch ($6 per person), and join us for the Awards Dinner ($15 per person, 6pm-8pm) with Keynote Speaker: David Morris, Vice President of the Institute for Local Self Reliance

Our goal is to gather at least 100 hybrid cars on site to show that hybrid cars are everywhere and come in all shapes, sizes and colors. You can help us reach that goal, while having fun!

Speakers will share their thoughts on topics ranging from "hypermiling" techniques to hacking into your hybrid. These sessions are more technical than the outdoor sessions and only available to Registered Attendees.

Expect to see a few of the Prius “Marathon Men” there, as well as John1701a, Mike Dabrowski, and other hybrid notables. (see the Hybridfest web site for a detailed list of speakers.)

Additional Hybridfest activities that are open to the general public at no charge include interactive exhibits, test drives, talking to other owners, vendor booths and music.

View one-of-a-kind vehicles like:
- The UW’s diesel hybrid electric Chevy Equinox (MOOlander)
- A fully functional EV1
- And maybe even a plug-in hybrid or two!

People from around the country are coming to Hybridfest so consider organizing your own “hybrid caravan” to the event. So far, states represented include West Virginia, Washington, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Minnesota, Illinois, Connecticut, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Whatever you do, do not miss Hybridfest!

This event is coordinated by a small non-profit team of all volunteers. We are dedicated to putting on event that you will enjoy. Please feel free to send us feedback.

We have confirmed that the mpg competition will need to be limited to the first 80 registrants, so if you want to compete, plan on registering today!

As I mentioned in the previous posts, Hybridfest is free and open to the public, but the special activities are available only for those who are registered attendees. Registration is $25.

Now I'll be able to put faces with names.
Putting faces with names is a large part of the community- building aspect of Hybridfest. Although learning things, competing in the MPG Challenge, and generally having fun will be great, too. Thanks for registering early. It makes it a lot easier for us to make plans and brings us closer to the magic 100 hybrids on site.

Interestingly, there are about as many Insights registered as Prius. If this trend keeps up, Hybridfest will turn out to be a nice showcase for Honda’s soon-to-be-axed hybrid. Maybe we need to start a petition or something. ;)

As always feel free to post your Hybridfest questions on this thread so we can answer them for you. We'll have some more updates shortly so stay tuned.
