Cambria Ride Update - Only 2 Weeks!

It's almost here! The ride to Cambria is just over 2 weeks away, and I for one am ready to go! We have folks coming from literally around the country which makes it just that much more fun.

Our current headcount is 49 people which is a few more than we had lat year. I think we have all but 2-3 rooms at the Bluebird so the place is effectively ours (just try not to frighten the "non-believers" staying there ). The folks who own the place are really looking forward to having us back this year; they've commented every time I've talked with them about what a great group we were/are.

Dinner is set at Las Cambritas for Saturday night. We have the deck starting at 6 p.m. and they'll have the buffet ready to go by 6:30. There is a small change in the dinner pricing. When we originally put this together we estimated about $22 per person for dinner with tax and tip, which includes the all you can eat buffet (Carne Asada, Chicken and all the fixin's for fajita style tacos and such) and soft drinks, tea, and coffee (all you can drink of those). With the harsh freeze over the winter affecting produce costs as well as spikes in beef prices, the dinner cost has moved up a little to $25 per person including everything above as before. I know it's a change, but still a failry small one, and the quality of the food and service we get is worth the little extra, I believe. PM me if you think otherwise and I'll see what I can do.

This is going to be a great ride and a great time to reconnect with old friends and make some new ones. I'm looking forward to seeing you all there!

Good point, thanks Bob!


I will either be coming around to the tables or collecting for dinner at the door as folks arrive, so yes please bring cash for dinner. That way we can get a good headcount and settle up fairly with the restaurant, too.
