Taste of the Town – Saddle Ranch

2019 is here and off to a good start. Our first gathering of the year was our monthly Taste of the Town social on January 17th. With two whole weeks since out last club meeting, you could tell the need to get together with fellow Corvette people was there.
Anthony, our always faithful Communications Guy, got the word out about the event from his new bunker over 400 miles away. Members were alert and answered the beckoning in great numbers. The destination was Saddle Ranch Chop House at the Valencia Mall, where Rock meets Western.
Most attendees were from the Rock side of the equation, while there were a couple Western people in the mix, complete with hats and even boots. It takes all kinds.
The headcount totaled twenty-five for this go around, up significantly (up 312%) from our previous TOT at the same location. Restaurant management were all eager and happy to take great care of our group with the increase in attendance, recalling when our numbers were down due to a large turnout for the Prescott Vette Sette car show last September, appreciative that the entire SCVCC didn’t depart from the community. By the way, none of our brave attendees got close to the bull. Could it be all of our bull riders now live in Arizona?
Our club has almost an entirely new Activities team, all eager to keep things rolling with many great activities for our members and guests in the new year.
Keep up to date for all of our upcoming events, outings and get-togethers by frequently taking a look at the Events Section of our club website. The Newsletter and Three Months at a Glance events listings are not always the final word for event dates and times since changes do occur from time to time. Listings in our webpage at scvcc.org are the final word so always check there before making plans.
I just checked the site and noted at this very moment our next TOT is at Maria Bonita Mexican Restaurant on February 21 @ 6:00 pm. I plan on being there for a taco or fajita, but I will be anxious to get an email update from Anthony and will be checking our events site to make sure I go the correct place. Hope to see you then, if not sooner.
