I've just completed preparations for the Spring Ride, Meet, Greet and Eat to Cambria, CA! The dates are Saturday and Sunday, May 3rd & 4th. Not one to mess with a formula that seems to be working, I've worked out arrangements for lodging with the BlueBird Inn (we have the entire facility this year), and dinner will be buffet style at Las Cambritas, where the food is tasty and the margaritas flow like... well, margaritas!
Everyone has seemed to like and enjoy both of these places and how they've served us in the past, and they love having us and are looking forward to our merry band visiting them again.
Lodging - The BlueBird Inn - 800-552-5434
To make reservations for Saturday night, 5/3, please call the BlueBird and tell them you are with the David Taylor BMW Group. They have a variety of room choices and have given us the following pricing -
- Standard Room, One Queen Bed - $84
- Standard Room, Two Double Beds - $110
- Standard Room, One King Bed - $110
- Standard Room, Two Queen Beds - $120
- Deluxe Room, One King or Two Queens - $140 (these have garden and creek views, balconies or patios, and fireplaces)
- Deluxe Suites - One King Bed - $180 (Has separate living room, creek and garden view, fireplace, etc.)
They are taking reservations now, so feel free to sign up! The cut-off date for the rooms and rates will be April 3rd. After that any remaining rooms will be made available to the public and go back to regular price.
Dinner will be at 6:30 p.m. Saturday night at Las Cambritas. We are finalizing the menu but will be able to hold the price at $25 per person, same as last year. Dinner will include a buffet taco bar with chicken, beef, carnitas (new!), veggies, and all the fixings to go with that (chips, salsa, guacamole, cheese, flour and corn tortillas, etc.), as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee with refills. The dinner price includes all of this plus tax and tip. They have a full bar with a great selection of beer, wine and cocktails available for purchase as well. We will have the patio for the night just like we did last year, so we'll have a place to hang out and visit for as long as we want.
Once you get your room reserved please add your name to the attendee list on this thread so I can get a headcount for dinner.
I'm really looking forward to the ride and seeing all of you again, and hopefully meeting some new folks as well! Everyone always seems to have a good time (I know I do, sometimes maybe a little too good
), and as long as we can keep doing that I'm all for it!
I hope you can join us!
