BOBie Annual Picnic 2017 Wrap Up!

Each year our club picnic seems to get bigger and better.  Of course, it’s all of you who attend and our volunteers working behind-the-scenes who make it seem like a piece of cake!  Speaking of cakes, thank you to Jon & Kathy Apogee for the surprise club cake!  Yum!!  If you missed it this year, we hope you will join us in October 2018.

Celebrating with Food, Friendship, and Fotos!

What’s better than kicking back with your favorite cycling BOBies under the largest gazebo at Ayala Park in Chino?  When its been decorated by BOBie Members, Sylvia & Greg with an artistic flair custom made for our club.  Tablecloths customized to look like roads, caution road signs, and handmade custom centerpieces honoring our new 2017 Club Kit Design by Joe Szeto.  They also surprised us all with this amazing BOBie Club Photo Cut Out Board!  That was fun!

Much thanks to our Picnic Team:  Teri Miller, Sylvia Holley, Greg Uthus, Janet Berg, Larry Pirrone, Kathy Wilkinson, Lisa Smollen, and David Patterson.  From check-in table, name tags, lunch & raffle tickets, choosing our lunch caterer, venue, finding volunteers, arranging for our raffle gifts, and of course providing an energetic & fun Emcee, this team did an outstanding job!

This year’s photography was superb once again with the talents of Ronn Campbell’s Super Sport Aerial Photography (drones are so fun), Phong Ha, and Rick David, and I am sure there were more taking pics out there as well.

Of course, what would a picnic be without great MUSIC in the background!  Each year, Pro-Sound DJs (also BOBie members) offer us great sounds during our picnic!  Thank you Alvin and Russell.

Pappas Artisanal provided a delicious catered lunch for us this year.  They served up bbq tri-tip and chicken sandwiches, veggie wraps, and kettle chips.  When seconds were offered, there was no fear of any leftovers!  Pappas is a popular catering choice for events in our Inland Empire.  You will soon see our club jersey hanging in their eatery in La Verne.  Check ’em out!

This year we had 86 Lunch RSVPs!  Thank you all for coming early for our annual photo, rolling through the streets of Chino in our new kits, and spending the day with your BOBie Family!
