History of the Club...
Dr. Bill, John Kingman and a few others started the "austinsan-antonio-area-tesla" google email list in 2012.  Matt Holm ordered his first Tesla in 2012 but didn’t get it until March, when he met a few other Tesla owners and Elon Musk at the Texas state Capitol to protest Tesla being illegal in Texas.  From there they went to happy hour and started organizing Cars And Coffee events.
Matt threw his first Tesla party at his house in the summer of 2013 and has had it annually ever since.
In 2015 Tesla said we had the largest membership group in Central Texas and asked if we would run the San Antonio and Austin area club with official designation.  The co-founders asked Matt if he would run the group.  Matt said yes and now in April 2020 the original Tesla Owners Central Texas club has split creating separate clubs for Austin and San Antonio, this allows us to have our own club.  Combined events are still planned due to the proximity of the two cities in central Texas.
