CD Message

October was a great month for riding.  Chapter gathering attendence was pretty weak again...there were only 14 people and only two bikes went on the ride.  Contrast that with  the previous weekend with the Scavenger Hunt to Morro Bay.  There were 25 people at the dinner on Saturday night.  Maybe we should start having our chapter gatherings “on the road”!

For 2018, there is a new officer position called Ride Coordinator.  Ron Green has volunteered to fill this role for our chapter.  Neither Ron nor I know what he is gettting into but we both expect we are heading for great rides next year!

October Recap

October 7, Saturday
We had a great ride through the Sierra Nevada foothills.  We shot up to Auburn and then to Forest Hill road which leads to Forest Hill Bridge, the tallest bridge in California at 730 feet.  We then headed south on 49 to 193 into Placerville for lunch. down to Placerville for lunch.  We stopped at Hog Wild BBQ and had fantastic BBQ while enjoying great weather at the picnic tables outside.  I definitely recommend this place.  Here was the route:  https://goo.gl/maps/7EWM6V31Abv

October 14-15, Saturday/Sunday
The Scavenger Hunt lived up to the hype!  There were 8 competitors that met the challenge.  There were over 72 locations to find and miscellaneous bonus points to pick up along the way.  The winner was Tim Hallock with 510 points, barely edging Don and Beth with 500 points.  Don and Beth strategy was to hit as many spots as possible and pick up as many added bonus points as they could.  One of their bonus points was a chance encounter with a CHP.  Don and Beth had pulled to the side of the road for a quick check.  A CHP stopped and asked if he could be of assistance.  With a grin, Don responds: “Yes, as a matter of fact you can!”  And with that, Beth took a picture of Don with the officer and gun in holster for added bonus points! 

My focus was to go after all of the big point locations.  In my planning, I did not think I could safely get down to Solvang to pick up 70 points there and get back in time to Morro Bay.  But when I stopped for lunch, I decided I might be able to make it if the traffic on 101 was not bad.  More importantly, I really wanted to see Solvang as I had heard that it was a really interesting place to see.  I was not disappointed.

We had dinner at Dorn's restaurant with a private area of the restaurant all to ourselves.  We had 25 people at dinner that night! The winners were announced at dinner.  Don and Beth won the award for the Road Kill photo.  Jim Smith won the aware for most beautiful picture.  The chapter paid for desserts.  It was a great setting and everybody had a great time.

A very special thank you to Shirley Jaramuy who conceived the idea and put so much effort into the planning and the support from Linda Androws.

CA2Q Chapter meeting.  The after chapter ride to Calistoga was changed due to the fires.  Instead Ron Green lead the ride over the Santa Cruz mountains to Cameron's for lunch in Half Moon Bay.  Here was the route:  https://goo.gl/maps/XsE6T3fRkjR2

 

November Events

November 4, Saturday
There will be a ride to the Sugar Barge Resort for lunch. It's a short ride of 100 miles. Here is the route:  https://goo.gl/maps/QJNyZ4Gq5uo

November 18, Saturday
CA2Q Chapter meeting.  The after chapter ride was planned to Lake Berryessa.  However, I am considering replacing this ride with the ride last month to Calistoga that was canceled due to the fires.  Rather than avoid the area, I expect the local businesses would love to see the customers coming back.  Here is the Calistoga route:  https://goo.gl/maps/FRW3SUDvHW52

November 28, Tuesday
CA2Q monthly dinner night....who wants to plan it?
