South Bay Scooter Club update!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE! -
Just a quick e-mail for all of you with a few South Bay Scooter Club specific updates.
Lots of rides have been going on lately and there are pics to check out, if you haven’t already:
Last weekend was the annual PhonIEs’ Halloween Scooter Rally. Sunday had a long scooter ride up to Mt. Baldy, filled with tons of twistys for 60+ miles – endurance was one word you could use, but the best one was fun. Check out the pics - click here
The week before that was the Vespa Club of Los Angeles’ 1st Annual Disneyland Ride. More good times! And, for the pics, click here. If you didn’t go, you missed a greatly decorated-for-Halloween Disneyland, especially the Haunted Mansion, which was completely re-done inside and out with a “Nightmare Before Christmas” Theme.
As always, be sure to check out our weekly updated “Upcoming Events” Page for the latest details of upcoming events and rides: http://www.southbayscooterclub.com/southbaysc/upcmngevents.html
But, here is a quick rundown:
This Saturday, November 4th is our regular monthly South Bay SC ride. Come on out for a local ride, ending up at either UTRO’s or PADDIE-O’s, two of our favorite, South Bay, scooter-friendly pubs!!
The following weekend I’d encourage you to go out to the Oak Glenn Apple Ride in Riverside on November 11th. We meet up at the Royal Falconer, located on Main St. in good ole Riverside, and leave at 11:00am sharp, ride up to the apple orchards for some cider, grub and fun; should be a total of 80 miles round trip. Come join us if you can!!!
Saturday, December 2nd, is our December South Bay ride. Stay tuned for a surprise destination!! Just make sure to mark it in your calendars...
Also, we will be doing our Annual South Bay SC “Naughty Butt Nice” X-Mas Lights Ride & Party sometime in December; stay tuned for the date.
And, we will be riding with the Vespa Club of Los Angeles for a special charity event in December:
On December 16th, the Vespa Club of LA has invited all scooterists to a TOYS FOR TOTS RIDE, benefiting the kids at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Here are the particulars: Meet at 12noon at the Starbucks at the intersection of Culver & Washington, in downtown Culver City. Ride leaves at 12:30pm. For this ride, the South Bay will be meeting at Claim Jumper in Torrance at 10:30am, leaving at 11:00am for Culver City.
Bring a toy designated for either a boy or girl. Please don't bring any stuffed animals, as some of the kids are allergic to them. This from the CHLA: GIFT CARDS ARE STRONGLY SUGGESTED. Some to be considered: gift cards from restaurant/fast food places, electronic stores (Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.), music stores or iTunes, etc... You can usually find a great selection of Gift Cards at any CVS, Sav-On store, or grocery store.
We will go on a local ride, through the Hollywood Hills, ending up at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (located just east of the intersection of Sunset Blvd & Vermont Ave) between 3 and 3:30pm, where we will directly donate the toys for their needy kids. Once there, we will be given a short tour of the famous lobby (designed by Walt Disney’s Imagineering Dept) and sanctuary gardens, where afterwards the VCLA will present the Hospital with an official Charity Certificate. Spread some Holiday cheer and make a difference to some needy children, while having some fun riding on your scoot with friends!
That’s it for now! Hope to see you on some, if not all, of the upcoming South Bay and local rides!!!!
