Road Rally 2022

Barrie-Orillia Chapter


To get out of the hibernation mode we've been in for past few years and to kick off a new start for the Barrie-Orillia Chapter of the EV Society we are planning a road rally.

Come join us for a morning drive around the country side and a meet-up afterwards at a well known Irish Pub in Barrie for lunch.  This will be the first in-person meeting we've had in a long time and it is an opportunity to meet other EV owners, share stories and socialize with like minded enthusiasts.

How it works, 

  • We meet in the parking lot at the start location to pick up a route map and landmark instruction sheet for the road portion of the rally.
  • Start driving the route as soon as you pick up the route map and try to spot the landmarks to complete the check sheet.  Approximate total of 57 km, 1 hour 15 minutes, with level 2 charging available mid-route at the 39 km mark.
  • Park our vehicles at the finish location - charge our EV if needed (free in the Parkade).
  • Meet-up at the final destination (at the restaurant a block from the parkade) for debriefing and a social get-together (and receive the recognition you deserve for completing the run).
  • Plan to enjoy a late lunch at reasonable prices in the downstairs meeting room - ordering from the menu.

Everyone welcome,

EV Owners - consider inviting a non-EV owner friend as a co-pilot - it is strongly suggested to have a second set of eyes on the lookout for the landmarks and fill in the check sheet.  Build the enthusiasm for EVs by inviting non-EV owners along for the go electric experience!
