CA2Q Monthly Flyer
September 2017

I think this is the first year ever where I am actually happy to have summer behind us. It was pretty busy for Robin and me from May to September yet we don’t have much to show for it.  We certainly did not get as many rides in as I hoped, but I expected it would be that way up front. Although it seemed the year started out pretty cool, it got hot fast and the last week of August was by far the worst.  But I think that there is a good side to that.  We should have the worst of the heat behind us and odds are in our favor for great weather for the CA2Q picnic on Saturday September 30.  I wouldn’t be surprised if those of us going to Mammoth see the first snow in the Sierra at the highest passes.

For those of you who had not planned on going to the district rally at Mammoth September 22 – 24, it’s not too late to change your mind.  There are still plenty of local hotels rooms available for around $130 a night. It will be a really nice ride and up back and the Mammoth Lakes area is spectacular.  If you’ve never been, you should join us for the fun.  I’ll buy first round at the bar on Friday night!

We have the CA2Q picnic the last Saturday in September as well.  See the details below. And then there is the Scavenger Hunt in October.  Not too late so sign up for that either!  Contact Linda Androws or Shirley Jaramuy.  As of right now, it looks like we have 12 bikes and 8 co-riders.  This is going to be a blast!

As the year comes to an end, I’m hoping to throw in one last social event.  Robin and I will host a 2017 CA2Q Year in Review party!  Robin likes to party so I had think of a good reason.  Look for that in early December.  More details to come.

August Recap

August 19, Saturday
We had our chapter meeting with a special guest appearance from our latest member who (was supposed to) moved to Utah, Bob Tobin.  Seems like just last month we were saying farewell to Bob. Actually, it was last month!  We can’t seem to get rid of this guy.  Our after chapter ride was supposed to be to Snell Labs in Sacramento. Unfortunately, the lady who runs the tour was unavailable and could not find someone to fill in for her. I asked about a November date as well but she could not make that work.  This may be some thing we want to set up for early next year.  Let me know if you are interested in this tour.  We stuck to the general route  There were 8 bikes and 2 co-riders. We had lunch at the Burger Saloon in Woodside.  Afterwards, the group split up and we all went it different directions.


August 29, Tuesday
We had our first monthly chapter dinner in awhile.  A rowdy crew of 12 people and 2 dogs enjoyed exquisite cuisine at The Lazy Dog restaurant at Hacienda Crossing in Dublin.

September Events

September 2, Saturday
I had a ride planned for the first weekend in September but due to extreme temps (115F), I canceled the ride.  The ride would have been to Auburn and then to Forest Hill road which leads to Forest Hill bridge, the tallest bridge in California at 730 feet.  We would have hooked up to CA 49 and down to Placerville for lunch, I was looking forward to this ride.  Maybe we’ll fit it in somewhere before the end of the year.  Otherwise, we’ll put it on the list for next year!

September 16, Saturday
CA2Q Chapter meeting. The after chapter ride is to Calaveras Big Trees State Park.  We can do a picnic lunch or have lunch in Arnold or Murphys.  We make that a game day decision depending on who goes.  The route would look something like this:  The total trip is 248 miles and about 5 hours in the saddle.

September 26, Tuesday
I’m looking for suggestions for the dinner this month.

September 30, Saturday
CA2Q Annual Picnic.  See the flyer below.

CA2Q – 2017 Scavenger Hunt
October 14 & 15

It’s been several years since our first Scavenger Hunt.  So, Linda A. and Shirley J. decided it was once again time to repeat the fun.  This time around the Scavenger Hunt will be a bit different than the original. To keep it fresh, we will be holding this year’s event in a whole new area.  It will be a destination/competition ride. 
We’re not yet ready to give you the ultimate destination but will just say that you will need to plan for it to be an over-nighter.  Hold October 14 & 15 on your calendar if you’d like to join in the fun.  You will be given plenty of time to make your hotel reservations (yes, you will need to spend the night). 
Shirley and Linda will be traveling in April to do final preparations and arrangements and to scope out the area.  Expect to get more information by early May. 
In the mean-time, you should start thinking about what your handle will be for this event (i.e., Golden Eagle, Fast Jack, One-eyed Pete….).  These handles will come into play for the Scavenger Hunt.  Have some fun with it, both the rider and co-rider.
If you joined CA2Q after our first Scavenger Hunt in 2014, you can get more information of what it is all about by going to our on-line Newsletter dated October 2014, pages 12-16. There’s a write-up with pictures!
As before, this event will be open to GWRRA/CA2Q active participants only.  If you know someone who might enjoy this type of event, this is the time for you to get them to join GWRRA and come to 2Q meetings.  They don’t need to own a Goldwing, but they will need to be a GWRRA/CA2Q active member/participant.
