Hollister Hills SVRA - Fun Run on December 22nd!

Hollister Hills SVRA Run on December 22nd!

Hi Club and friends of the club! I will be leading a run at Hollister Hills Saturday, Dec 22nd. This will be a newbie friendly run. Come and join the fun, get some MORE wheelin' in before the end of the year! We will met at the big oak tree by the bathrooms above the Old Obstacle Course (where the stair steps and frame twister are for our Safety Clinic). I plan to start the run at 9:30 AM so arrive early enough to be aired down and ready to go by that time.

Please post any any questions that you have here and hope to see you there!

To find the park - enter Hollister Hills State Vehicle Recreation Area on your map app (ex: Google Maps, Waze).

Here's where we are meeting, circled in red (thanks to Andres Olivella for the map):

ED4 Christmas Party

Trail Boss: Greg Youree

Our annual Xmas party and potluck.  We also do a "White Elephant" gift exchange.

This year’s event will be held at the American Legion Willow Glen Post 318, 514 Minnesota Avenue, San Jose, CA

The party will start at 6:00 pm with dinner at 6:30 pm. If you would like to arrive early to prepare some food or setup, we have the venue starting at 5:00 pm. Myself and a few others will be there setting up.


You do not want to miss this party! This is one of ED4’s premier events!!

  • You have heard of and participated in White Elephant gift exchanges in the past, but this one takes it to a whole new level!!!!

  • Wear a good, comfortable pair of running shoes.  The gift exchange gets very lively to say the least.

  • Bring a WRAPPED gift valued around $20-$30.  (Bring something you would like to have 4 wheeling or camping related)  This is not the place to get rid of the Panettone cake that Aunt Martha got you 4 years ago…

  • Bring a dish to share for dinner.  We have had a great variety for our potluck in the past.

  • BYOB!!  There is a refrigerator at the post that we can use.

  • Cutlery and plates will be provided by the club.

  • This party is open to all members, prospective and guests.

  • If you have not signed up for a side dish yet, please do so via email.

Our annual Oktoberfest.  Great trails, food and maybe some beers.

More details to follow later in 2018

ED4 2018 Oktoberfest!

 

When: October 12-14, 2018

Where: The Tamarack Lodge @ Bear Valley and surrounding campsites!

 

Our 2018 Oktoberfest will be held at the Tamarack Lodge and surrounding campsites near Bear Valley.  We’ve had the event here before; the location is perfect for both good off-roading and gathering together to cook. If you are planning to come, then please make sure to book your room soon before it fills up.  You can also bring an RV or even camp per the directions on the Tamarack page. There are also campgrounds located nearby that can be used and some of the group are planning to take advantage of these. The link above will take you to the Tamarack Lodge web page where you can check out the lodge and make a reservation.  You can also directly get a reservation here – reserve a room.

 

Events:

Friday - October 12th

·         We’ll hit some trails, current plan is to run Deer Valley-.  We’ll also probably hit Sick Rock if there is time.

Saturday – October 13th

·         We’ll hit some different trails, We’ll most likely do some scenic runs and if a group is willing, they might split off and do more challenging runs like Deer Valley for those that missed the Friday run.

·         Pot Luck Cook Out which will take place in the wonderful Tamarack Lodge kitchen and back deck.

Sunday – October 14th

·         We’ll start heading home

·         Possible trails for those that want more and have time

I will cover this more at the club meeting In June.  In the meantime, if you are coming then please make sure to mark your calendar.  

Thanks and see you soon!
