Free Concert In The Park – July 27th

Fellow LPSCer’s – Let’s make the 3rd time the charm by actually showing up for a “Free concert in the Park event” ( the last 2 showings were rather poorly attended). We’ll meet with a picnic dinner/libations in hand at 6-6:30pm at Camarillo’s Constitution Park (Carmen drive and Paseo Camarillo) on Saturday night July 27th. The concert starts at 7:30pm. The band will include former members of Journey, Boston,Santana, Steppenwolf, and Lynard Skynard. I will stake out a place somewhere on the Park grounds with our LPSC banner. Bring your beach chairs, a light blanket and sweater (as it does cool off after the sun goes down), and picnic dinner, and a smile on your face and get ready to have an old time Rockin and Rollin Good Ole Good Time. This one should really be fun!! See ya there!

Winery Bike Ride – May 12th

Join us Saturday May 12th, 2012, in Solvang/Santa Ynez for a bike ride and wine tasting. Enjoy biking with your friends and enjoying the scenery along the way as the Santa Ynez Valley is beautiful this year with all the recent rains. We are planning to do the Solvang – Los Olivos loop going to the Gainey, Bridlewood, Brander and Roblar wineries and then to the town of Los Olivos where there are 25 tasting rooms within a 2 block radius including Arthur Earl, Andrew Murray, Longoria, Tercero, Byron and Pacific Ridge, ending back at Solvang.

To carpool, either meet between 8:00 & 8:30 AM at the Vons Parking Lot, Seaward and Harbor in Ventura. Going North on the 101, get off at the Seaward off ramp turning left towards the Ocean. Make a left on Harbor and a right into the parking lot between Carrows and the bank. We will leave promptly at 8:30 AM.

Or meet us in Solvang, at the VFW parking lot in Solvang by the Police Station on CA 246 on the east side of Solvang at 10:00 AM. Bring your bike, water and something for lunch, or you can grab something at one of the wineries.

We are also looking for someone interested in being the SAG vehicle. This will depend on the number of people interested in riding. This would be someone interested in going up there for the day but not wanting to ride or only interested in doing part of the ride. They would be in charge of storing any purchases along the way, picking up tired bikers, and taking our lunches to the designated winery.

Newbury Park Hike – April 14th

The hike is split into three parts. The first part will go to Sycamore Canyon

Hidden Valley Overlook with views of the Conejo Valley. And finally
for the really ambitious among you, there is a stair climb and decent
which ends at the Satwiwa Cultural Center. The combination of all
three hikes will be about 6 miles, so bring good shoes, water and a
snack. Afterwards we will meet for lunch in Camarillo.
