Wrap up from Madison Hybrid Group's November meeting.

For those that don't already know, the Madison Hybrid Group isn't just about hybrids. We discuss all kinds of fuels and fuel saving ideas. I would love to see other ecomodders at our events!

November's meeting was a good time as we took the meeting to Smart Toyota on Odana Rd. They set aside some designated parking for us and had coffee and cookies waiting for us in the meeting room. Yum!

John Dolan, their hybrid expert, gave us a sneak preview of the 2010 Prius including photos of option features such as the solar paneled roof. Very cool.

Then we went on a tour of Smart Toyota's new dealership. We found out about the green features of their building, services they offer as well as history of the dealership.

Since this was the last regular meeting of the year we recapped the club events that occurred in 2008.

Every other month regular meetings

Trip to see the Brewers

Helping out at green events


Monthly summer Hybrid Car Cruise nights at Quaker Steak & Lube

Road trip to historic Mazomanie

Fun and camaraderie

As always we discussed Hybridfest, and the fact that we are looking for additional volunteers on the main planning committee.

Members also discussed the latest hybrid car news (such as the new Honda Insight coming out in 2009) as well as PHEV news. After the meeting there was more member discussion and help with car features out in the parking lot. (But man, was it cold!)

Overall it's been another great year for the Madison Hybrid Group.

We look forward to even more fun in 2009.

If you have additional ideas that you would like to see the club do, be sure to send me an email.

As a reminder, the Madison Hybrid Group meets the 2nd Saturday of the odd numbered months.

Next meeting: January 10, 2008 10:30-noon. Smart Toyota at 5901 Odana Rd, Madison, WI

See you there!
