The Velo Club Summer Picnic is coming up on Sunday, August 4th from 2-6pm. The picnic is held at the Coniglio Family House on Laureles Grade in Carmel Valley. There’s lots of room, a big grill, swimming pool, and even a shower for those who want to clean up after the morning rides.
THE PICNIC: VCM provides barbecued burgers, sausages, hot dogs and the fixings, as well as coolers/ice, plates and utensils and non-alcoholic beverages. BYO Beer, Wine or other alcoholic drinks. Also we ask that members bring salads/side, appetizers or desserts to share.
- If your last name starts with A-H bring an appetizer.
- If your last name starts with I-Q bring a dessert.
- If your last name starts with R-Z bring a salad or side dish.
THE RIDES: Long Ride – Big Arroyo Seco Loop. Start/meet at the Coniglio Family House at 7am, climb Laureles Grade, Hwy 68 to River Road, Arroyo Seco and back over Cahoon Summit into Carmel Valley (about 87 miles). Shorter Ride – Climb to Cahoon Summit (with Cachagua Loop option on the way back) ride leaving at 9:30. If you get back early, you can help setup the picnic or take a dip in the pool to cool off.
VOLUNTEERING TO HELP SET UP/CLEAN UP
As you may remember, because of the higher costs of our Holiday Party in December, beginning this year there will be a $20 per person charge to attend the party. However… if you volunteer 3 or more hours at a club-related event, you will earn a free entry to the Holiday Party. To that end, you can work off most of those hours by helping out at the summer picnic. We need the following:
- 2 or 3 volunteers to help setup for the picnic (Noon-2)
- 2 more people to help Jim and Doug on the grill (90 minutes)
- 5 or 6 to help with cleanup at the end (6-8pm)
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer to help.
RSVP via Evite no later than July 31st so we can get a head count and know how much to bring. If you are planning on riding that morning, please mention what ride you will be doing in your RSVP comments. You can also RSVP by emailing email@example.com The Summer Picnic is free for VCM members. Non-members are welcome but we do ask they give a $10 donation to the club.
We look forward to seeing you at the Summer Picnic
