  2. Hi Everyone, Hope you are well! An update to yesterday's updates. RE: Lunch: Peter sent along the following message: "I confirmed that Bob C. is bringing and cooking hamburgers and hot dogs. He is bringing everything for that, even some potato salad. Heino is bringing a flat of plain water. Only other thing we need are soda and ice chests to keep everything cold. Chips and dip would be fun also." Shout out to Bob C. and Heino! Please be sure to thank them on Saturday! And, if you plan on bringing an item to share, please let us know by replying to this message or Contacting Us: http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/contactus --- RE: Planning Meeting: The Planning Meeting will follow the BBQ lunch at EuroTech.

  3. Hi Everyone, Hope you are all well! This Saturday's forecast is currently mostly sunny and 70 degrees. A fantastic day to bring your Volvo, camera, and ideas to the 11th Annual EuroTech Tech Session, Lunch, & Planning Meeting! --- The EuroTech Tech Session / Cars & Coffee runs from 10:00A to 1:00P and is a great opportunity to put your Volvo on the lift and check things out before Davis! The Lunch & Planning Meeting are traditionally held at Lots of Luck Restaurant and runs from 1:00P to 3:00P. However, there may be a change to the Lunch and Planning Meeting plans. Details are provided below. ---------- Tech Session Updates: 1. Donut Volunteers have been found for the EuroTech Tech Session / Cars & Coffee Event! Please be sure to thank them on Saturday! Shout out to our event volunteers: Frank and Glenn! Thank you for your generous donut donations! 2. Volunteers are still needed to purchase / donate coffee for the EuroTech Tech Session / Cars & Coffee event. If interested, please let us know! Please, reply to this message or Contact Us: http://www.sacvolvoclub.org/Home/contactus ---------- Lunch Updates: Peter has informed us that someone has expressed interest in hosting a BBQ for lunch at EuroTech following the Tech Session / Cars & Coffee. At this point, we do not know who this person is or what they will be making and/or providing. (If you are this person, please get in touch!) To be on the safe side, please assume this will be a pot-luck style BBQ and consider bringing something to share along with a plate, utensils, and a chair. If you prefer to shop local, there are a number of grocery stores in the area. For more information, please check out this Google Map: https://www.google.com/maps/search/grocery+store/@38.5921428,-121.2996239,14z --- In the event that the person planning the BBQ cannot make the event, we will attempt to move lunch to our traditional lunch spot, the Lots of Luck Restaurant. Please note, however, that we have not made a reservation this year due to the planned BBQ, so we will need to ask if they can accommodate our group. If Lots of Luck Restaurant is unable to accommodate our group, or you cannot attend the Planning Meeting and prefer to get some food to go, there are also a number of restaurants and cafes in the area. For more information, please check out this Google Map: https://www.google.com/maps/search/restaurant+or+cafe/@38.5922073,-121.2996239,14z/data=!3m1!4b1 ---------- Planning Meeting Updates: In the event the BBQ lunch is hosted at EuroTech, we will also hold the Planning Meeting at EuroTech. Please consider bringing a chair if you would like to participate. In the event the BBQ lunch is canceled, we will attempt to move the Planning Meeting to the Lots of Luck Restaurant, but may need to postpone the meeting if they are unable to accommodate our group. --- Looking forward to seeing you all on March 30th! Take care, volvie!
