Waterbury, CT. - Registration, Technical Testing, & Display
Welcome! This is the third time the Waterbury Region Convention and Visitors Bureau has invited us to kick-off the NESEA American
Tour de Sol -- and it is great to be back! As you will see, the combination of Library Park, and Grand Street are well situated to accommodate our needs, and to attract the general public.
Team registration will be open at 9am, and at 10 the public will arrive to see Waterbury's "Transportation: Past, Present, a Future " festival, which will include entertainment, food, exhibits, and all of you. There will be a display of Antique cars, educational activities, train rides, and music. We recommend that you arrive by 8:00 am so that you can get unloaded and be ready to display your pride and joy with us in Library Park by 10:00 am. Exact tech testing times will assigned.
Naugatuck Valley Community Technical College's Alternative Fuel Vehicle Center has also generously offered to make their shop available for repairs from noon to 11 p.m. Sat. and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sun. If you don't need the shop, you should still plan on visiting their unique state-of-the-art facility. The staff will be available to give tours on Saturday afternoon and most of Sunday.
We are hoping that the Junior Solar Sprint, miniature solar car competition for middle school students will be held on Grand St, midday.
You are all invited to a welcome supper, meeting and introductions provided by NESEA in Library Park.
The charging station, which is located in Library Park, will be available overnight: 6:00 PM - 7:00 AM. Security will be provided.
