North Bay Run & BBQ (Sept 25)

Back by popular demand, your hosts Greg Tatarian and John Kenner invite owners of new and classic Lotus cars to join us for a tour of some of our Sonoma County back roads, followed by a BBQ at John Kenner’s spread in Sebastopol.

PLEASE R.S.V.P. NO LATER THAN 9/21 SO JOHN CAN HAVE SUFFICIENT FOOD AVAILABLE!

We will meet at 0930 at Sonoma Valley Bagel & CafĂ©, located at 350 Rohnert Park Expressway West, Rohnert Park, and depart at 1000. Fill your tank before the start – plenty of stations are nearby. For those members who miss the start, or are coming from further south, we will have a scheduled stop at the Marin French Cheese Co., AKA Cheese Factory, AKA Rouge et Noir, located at 7500 Red Hill Road., Petaluma CA 95952 – 707-762-6001, at around 1045 where we’ll stop for about 15 minutes before continuing on our route to John Kenner’s place. After lunch, return home via Hwy 101, just 10 miles east, or another interesting route home! Total drive time with one stop will be about 2.5 hours, so we’ll end up at John Kenner’s place at about 12:30.

Greg Tatarian (1971 S4 DHC) designed the route and will lead the drive. After a few comments from last year, we’ll take it a bit easier – some of our cars are a little low or stiff for some of the road surfaces. We are also considering splitting into two groups – faster and not as fast. You can email Greg for the announcement flyer as well as the map and directions or download a multi-page PDF directions and event flyer from his website at:

John Kenner’s address is: 5190 Vine Hill Road, Sebastopol. John will be serving excellent BBQ’d marinated chicken, pork loin, potato salad and fresh vegetables from his garden at about 1 pm. Bread, desert, and beverages are potluck. If you don’t eat chicken, bring something else. A refrigerator will be available. Check out John’s Triumph and Lotus projects while you eat!

PLEASE R.S.V.P. NO LATER THAN 9/21 SO JOHN CAN HAVE SUFFICIENT FOOD AVAILABLE!

The fun run will start around 10 AM, and the BBQ will begin around 1 PM (and who knows when the meeting will begin!). A contribution of a salad or dessert for the BBQ would be nice, but is not required. RSVP for the BBQ is required. Email for RSVP, address, questions, etc…

When: 19th-June-2010, 10 am (drive), 1pm (BBQ)
Where: Meet at Santana Row for the drive or directly come to the BBQ at Mel and Darlene’ place (Danville, CA)
