Hi Guys and Gals:
The response to the Gilroy Garlic Festival idea was pretty unspectacular so I've canceled that. I was driving through Capitola tonight and noticed that this Sunday is the Wharf to Wharf. It's sold out, so it's too late to participate officially, but I'm wondering if anyone is interested in walking the course. I think they will have all the streets closed and there are about 50 live bands along the route. It's 6 miles and it might be fun to walk it, as much as we can with being non-participants. I don't know what the rules are - I tried to find out by checking the website, but there wasn't any information about that. I know the race starts at 8:30am so the fast part will definitely be over before we start.
We will meet at Gharkey and West Cliff. I'm bringing Jack. Hopefully there will be parking around there. So we'll head down past the boardwalk and east along the water and see how it goes.
Let's set up a car shuttle. Put in your RSVP if you are willing to meet early at 9:30 to work on a car shuttle, so we could drive a couple of cars out to Capitola so we can use them to get back. Or we could share a cab - whatever works. Or walk back. Let me know your preferences. :)
Hope to see you all there.
