End of the World Party – December 20th 8PM

The Mayans predicted it and even REM sang about – yes, the end of the world is about to happen, and apparently there’s not a thing that we can do about it… except party! So it may be a work night but hey it’s all over the next day anyways!

We will be having ★Spun Honey★ play some tunes, beer pong, suicide punch, and some real fattening food like pizza and donuts. Let us know if you wanna spend your last hours with us! Oh and have a designated driver just in case we are all still standing at 1am.

Love you all! If you would like to come, send an e-mail so we plan on how many donuts to buy. We provide beer, punch and bad food. There will be a full bar available from the yacht club on your dime as well. You can bring something to share if you like. Also, dress up crazy if you like – anything you want! What would YOU want to wear for your last day?

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

Join your hiking friends in Newbury Park for a morning of hiking!

The hike is split into three parts. The first part will go to Sycamore Canyon
Falls in Point Mugu State Park. The falls should be gorgeous with all
of the recent rains. The second part of the hike is a climb up to the
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.

Details: 9AM Saturday , April 14th, 2012
Meet at 8:15AM at the Camarillo Park and Ride [more info] to carpool,
leaving promptly at 8:30 AM. Or meet at 9:00 AM at the Main Parking
Lot at Point Mugu State Park.

To get to the park, take the Wendy Drive off ramp in Newbury Park heading south 2 miles to Lynn Road.
Turn right and proceed 1.7 miles to Via Goleta and the Park entrance
