Lots of fun at Monterey Lanes this past Sunday with Velo Club Bowlers. Congratulations to Team 2 with Leonard Loeb, Alex Capelli, Gundi Neuhoff and Mark Bradley who took the top prize with the highest average score over two games. MVP award goes to Leonard who was on fire, rolling a smooth 197 in his second game!
Velo Club Monterey is hosting a special one-time screening of the film The Bikes Of Wrath on Wednesday evening, April 3 at Cinemark Monterey 13 in the Del Monte Center. This award-winning film follows 5 Aussies as they retrace the path taken by the Joad Family in John Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath, this time on bicycles. As you might expect, chaos ensues!
Unlike a traditional movie showing, this Demand Film screening requires that 40 tickets be reserved in the next 47 days in order for the screening to occur. Tickets are $13, but you won’t be charged until the ticket threshold is met.
We’ll need your help if we’re going to make this event happen. Not only do we want to see you in the audience, we’d also really appreciate you helping spread the word about the movie. Tell your other friends and have them join us for this special one-time screening of The Bikes Of Wrath!
About The Bikes of Wrath…
Five Australians attempt to cycle 2600 kilometers from Oklahoma to California in honor of the westward migration undertaken by ‘The Grapes of Wrath’s’ Joad family. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck’s seminal novel. The Bikes of Wrath is a unique, funny and insightful documentary filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.
If it’s February, it must be time for a Velo Club Monterey Bowling Party! Join us at Monterey Lanes on Sunday, February 24th from 2 to 4pm. We’ve got lanes reserved just for the club. Cost is $20 per person (payable to Velo Club Monterey when you arrive) which includes 2 games and shoe rental. Balls are provided by Monterey Lanes. Food and beverage is extra.
You don’t have to be much of a bowler – we’re doing it for fun, so sign up and we’ll put together some teams. And we’ll have some prizes to give out to the team with the best scores!
Please RSVP via Evite by Wednesday, February 20th so we can get a head count and know how many lanes to grab.
Bowling starts at 2, so come 15 minutes early to get shoes and teams sorted out. When you check in just say you’re with the Velo Club.
