Founder’s Launch Party Shedule

The REMBA Founding Member Party is upon us. Will you be there?

Perhaps you’ve heard the call?  If you’re a REMBA Founding Member, you’re in.  Please bring yourself and your immediate family to the party on Saturday, August 20th.  We’re giving away a brand new Trek Stache (that’s a bike, natch). The odds are SO GOOD that we’ll probably hit you up for donations, but seriously – it’s a give-away.  And all you need to do is be there and be a REMBA member. How rad is that?

We’re more than just excited to be throwing a launch party.  We’re thinking we might need to make this a regular thing!   The goal being that we get together, share stories, good news, a ride, fun & games with the kids, tip a few pints, burgers and high fives… why wouldn’t we?

I’m getting ahead of myself, because we have THIS PARTY to get in the books!  Here are all the details that we know for sure:

Already coming? HAVE YOU RSVP’d?  Please help us plan food & drink by responding to the facebook event here.  (in the event you aren’t a facebook practitioner, you can let a board member know [you may have already] or email membership@mountainbikealliance.org)

What?:  The REMBA Founding Member Party
Who is it for?:  YOU. Mind you, this is a Members-Only Party.  Want to join or invite someone who isn’t? THEY CAN JOIN REMBA HERE

          …just an idea: bring a bike lock. No sense in tempting the n’er do wells… know what I’m sayin?

Where?:  “Lower Group” area at Jack Rabbit Meadows party spot, Spring Lake Regional Park, Santa Rosa, CA   …this is the group area DIRECTLY adjacent to the Spring Lake BOAT LAUNCH and parking area.  There is PLENTY of parking anywhere in Spring Lake Park – standard parking fees apply.  Of course you are also welcome to RIDE into the party, too!
