Happy New Year! The 2016 CCR web site is now open for registration. 2016 Home A few folks already found it and have registered without a hitch. . .so Dan Finazzo and Tom Gary are confident that everything is good to go; Ray Weber was first on board! Some details for you to consider: Bruce White recommended a charity to the CCR Executive Committee which endorsed his choice. The charity details are on the web site. A $25 rebate for first timers has been included on the registration page consistent with the Board of Directors' commitment to encouraging new attendees. The Wednesday get-acquainted breakfast will be partially subsidized by registration fees. The full cost is about $20 so with a CCR subsidy, the cost to attendees will be $10: sign-up for breakfast is required during registration. Once details are sorted out, a cooking demo will be added to the site. A dessert buffet is in the planning to run concurrent with the auction. . .like last year. Bruce White, the 2016 CCR Chair, has appointed a committee to work on an online merchandise ordering plan. When that is set, it too will be added to the web site. Announcements of things like the cooking class and the merchandise will provide good opportunities to bump interest in CCR. A CCR hang tag <acronym title="Google Page Ranking">PR</acronym> program is underway. . .the tags are printed and Jean Zeiler has a big batch to send out to the folks who offered to serve as CCR Ambassadors with the mission to visit dealers, clubs, and rallies around the country advertising our event. If you offered to be an Ambassador but have not heard from Jean yet, send her a note (However. . .she has been a bit occupied as John Z is currently getting some surgical adjustments to his back. . .best wishes to Z for a successful procedure and a quick recovery.) Notice has been sent to the RA and the MOA with event information for their web sites and magazines. Bruce is looking at special or optional activities and will announce them as they are sorted out. For starters, we are looking at a Thursday CCR visit to Hearst Castle. Tour Hearst Castle Online with Virtual Tours Picture a hundred CCR bikes all descending on the Hearst estate after a tour down the PCH! Information on hotel registration is now embedded in the web site. More details will be announced here and on the CCR site. Stay tuned. 2016 CCR, here we come.
