The event is located at 12900 Saratoga Avenue which is on the corner of Saratoga Avenue and Cox Avenue.  If you are heading South on Saratoga Avenue turn left onto Cox Avenue, go down to the first driveway and turn right and follow the “driveway” (you’ll be in the parking lot) around to the right and we will be at the end of the “driveway” on the right just before Saratoga Avenue.  If you are heading north on Saratoga Avenue there is a driveway about 100 yards before the corner of Cox Avenue – if you see it, turn right and you’ll see us on the left.  If you miss the driveway no worries, just turn right on Cox avenue and turn right into the first driveway and follow the instructions above.   We will be parking our A’s at the West end of the complex facing Saratoga Avenue (same place as last year for those that attended).

The event starts at 5pm and Wayne and I will be there from around 4:30 to 5:30ish to assist in the parking. If you arrive after that and we aren’t there just move the barrier and find a spot to park and please place the barrier back. When you park please feel free to take a space and a half so that our cars aren’t’ parked real close together and feel free to park on either side of the parking area.  This should be a lot of fun and looks like the weather is cooperating with us – so far we’ve heard there will be 12 food trucks, and yes, one is serving ice cream!!  See you there!

 If you have any questions please call or email: jci1@comcast.net

SCVC Shirt & Jacket Orders Now Being Taken

Susan and Dave Jones are again going to place an order for SCVC items (shirts, hats, jackets).  The last time they did this was March of 2015, so they don’t do this all that often.  They say the vendor AGAIN has kept the price constant, only going up by the local sales tax increase.

You will find a link below for the order form.  Please click on the link, and print it, fill it out, and bring to the meeting.  NOTE:  Checks, which are preferred, should be made out to Dave Jones and not the club.  Dave and Susan will bring Tuesday night a number of items for display along with extra order forms.  Maybe some of you can wear your finest so all of the options will be on display

Their plan is to take orders all of the month of Aug. and also at the Sept. General Meeting.  Sometime during Sept. they will place their order and you will have it well before Christmas (hint).  If you don’t plan to make any of those meetings, you can mail your order to them at their address in the Roster.

So come prepared to place your order next Tuesday at the General Meeting.

Dave & Susan

PS:  Jill’s neighbor is still in business so once you get your new shirts and jackets, you can work with her to have your name added to anything you want.
