MARCH 17 MEETING DETAILS
TEVA will have a special meeting on Saturday, March17, 2018. extending from 9AM to
12:00 Noon. Our location will be Academy Village in Vail, just west of metro Tucson.
The general public is welcome to attend.
The street address is 13715 E. Langtry Lane. This Google map will bring you to it.
Basically, head east on any of the main east-west Tucson surface streets (Speedway, Broadway,
22nd St.) and turn south (right) onto Houghton Rd. About a mile south of 22nd Street, Houghton
intersects with Old Spanish Trail. Turn east (left-hand turn.)
Old Spanish Trail winds to the east and, after about 3 miles from Houghton, intersects with
S. Freeman Rd., at the west boundy of Saguaro National Park East. Turn right (south.)
At about this point, Freeman Rd. changes it's name to Old Spanish Trail.
Procede south for about 3 miles and Old Spanish Trail will, once again wind to the east.
Keep your eyes open for the Rocking K Ranch Stables and the Rincon Valley Cowboy Church.
A couple thousand feet beyond this will be the left-hand turn onto S. Rainwater Lane.
Take that turn and procede several hundred feet until you meet the Langtry Lane intersection.
Well have signage in place on early Saturday morning to guide you to the parking area of the
Arizona Senior Academy Great Room.
THE MEETING, PRESENTATION AND "RIDE & DRIVE"
Note the extended meeting time. We will devote the 1st hour (9AM-10AM) to general TEVA
business. Then, the 2nd hour will be devoted to a presentation of electric vehicle and charging
technology. This will segue into an outdoor "Ride & Drive" at around 11AM, which we
anticipate will conclude at around 12:00 Noon.
The "Ride & Drive" will be an opportunity for interested meeting attendees to get behind the
wheel of electric vehicles for a brief drive around the Academy Village complex. We'll also
have copies of the buyers guide magazine, The Electric Car Insider, available for interested
We'd like to extend our thanks to TEVA member and Academy Village resident Joe Heigert,
as well as the Academy Village Sustainability Committee, for coordinating our special March
