I was thinking about Venice

I was thinking about Venice with the Snake Run, Big Bowl Small Bowl and Street course, plenty of beach for BBQ and Beach activities.

Compton!

Just tell me when. I want to be sure to have this on my calendar for where ever it may be.

Well, if you want camping,

Well, if you want camping, Etnies would be a good call. Camp out at O'Neil Campgrounds just 3 or 4 miles from the park...

Venice, before Solvang, but thats just being selfish because its closer to ME..........

Todd, seriously? camping in

Todd, seriously? camping in the heart of the OC?

Venice sounds cool but I think we'd be feeding homeless people with our BBQ and parking can be a hassle but I really do love that pool.

Maybe Borrego Springs? we could actually reserve the whole park just for us Topians and there are camp grounds just around the corner.  If you have never skated there, you would have a great time. It IS a haul for almost anyone except Mogulman but there is a real cool vibe and again, the park would be ours. Other then the lack of real pool coping, it is pretty damned fun.

OH, and obviously we would have to do it before summer hits!

It was too hot at Chino last

It was too hot at Chino last year. So if our location is a hot place lets think aout doing this sooner. If we choose Venice or Solvang we can do it sometime after the pool party.

 Split Pea Soup, ICBM's,

 Split Pea Soup, ICBM's, camping with Cass...I'm all over Solvang now!

Yeah that's because your river people. Clark, Toby and Alfredo are 3 good reasons to go to Solvang.

Looks like Solvang is what most want. Now what day? And what about camping or lodging.

"Clark, Toby and Alfredo are

"Clark, Toby and Alfredo are 3 good reasons to go to Solvang."

This is so true, and a 4th for me is that I have never been there.

Ken, if you pick a date soon, I can look into a good rate at the Beulton (sp?) Marriott for those that wish.

Also danish, middle aged

Also danish, middle aged tourists, and good surfing nearby @ Jalama County park.

Look's  like a party in Solvang.... I'm down for the Marriot and a taste of wine country. Bill will you be bringing Pat?

I think so Dale, wine tasting?

We could always turn the women loose on the vinyards while we skate.

Lets nail down a date so I can work on the rate at the hotel.

Early May?Before school is

Early May?

Before school is out, after the local mountains are closed, before it starts to get hot.

I dunno. Ken you tell us. Your the ring leader.

FYI - It can get booked up

FYI - It can get booked up there a year in advance with car rallys and marathon events.  Check the city of Solvang's event calendar before picking a date.  Last big session up there just happened to be during a big bike rally, and no rooms were to be found.

Jeffs right - last skatopia

Jeffs right - last skatopia reunion there was a bike race up there. Was thinking about the weekend after pro tec but I am going to check with Solvang first.

I am so into this.  Let's get

I am so into this.  Let's get a date, so I can start preping the ol' lady.  Marriot sounds swanky, maybe I can even get her to go!

....and it ain't too beaucoup.

It looks like there is a wine

It looks like there is a wine festival and 1/2 marathon on the 8th of May and a Bike race on the 16th.

So, that could leave the weekends of the 1st, the 22nd, or the 29th.

Isn't the Protech on the 15th or 16th?

According to WCS Pro Tec is

According to WCS Pro Tec is Friday, May 21 2010 - Saturday, May 22 2010

I am down to bring the RV up

I am down to bring the RV up there for the weekend...I have family up there so this will be great! It will be fun to meet everyone.

All three of those dates work

All three of those dates work for my crew of 3 because Rachel is in!  Let's seal this date off, book some Marriot rooms, and get krunk. 

....and it ain't too beaucoup.

Well, the mothers day weekend

Well, the mothers day weekend thing may be an issue for some but Ken you make the call.

Amy has plans on Mothers Day

Amy has plans on Mothers Day - Dale's Michelle cant get away on the last weekend of any month. So it has to be the 1st weekend in May or the  first weekend in June.

Nothing really going on in

Nothing really going on in the first weekend of May (May 1st, Saturday) in Solvang.

That works for me, Ken?

OK thats it.

Ken? I got a message from

Ken? I got a message from Facebook saying you canceled this event?

Oh, ok I got it.Well, it

Oh, ok I got it.

Well, it appears that the Marriott in Buelton is not longer a Marriott. The nearest Marriott is in Santa Maria. It's a pretty nice hotel, it's brand new, we stayed at it on a recent road trip to San Jose.

Anyway, it's not too far from Solvang and I should be able to get a real good rate there but I need to get an idea of how many rooms. It should be about $50.00. Here is a link to info on the hotel. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/smxfi-fairfield-inn-and-suites-santa-maria/

So, let me know.

Dale Ardens camping - I am
