Santa Monica Hiking Club 5 Year Anniversary Party

Santa Monica Hiking Club 5th Year Anniversary Party

Watch horse racing and then free Devo Concert

What better way to celebrate the Club than to have a Horse Race named after us.

First 10 people that RSVP free

$10 Admission prior to 8:30 p.m.

Meet at Whittingham's Pub which is on the 3rd level next to the finish line. We will meet at 7:30 but will be there all night. Look for signs that say Santa Monica Hiking Club.

    Thank you Todd for organizing this and getting free tix for the first 10 ppl. It was my first time at HW Park and I probably never would have gone if it wasn't for this event. I always enjoy new experiences!

    It was fun going down to the track to take a picture with the winning jockey. I enjoyed being able to pet one of the horses and watch the race from closer up.

    I was hopelessly lost in a sea of traffic attempting to make this one. I had to abandon the mission and head back to base camp. Hope you guys had fun.

  • Matthew

    I'm sorry that you had to experience that T. I was planning and looking forward to going but wasn't able to make it and had to cancel my RSVP. It would have been my first SM Hiking Club meetup. It occurs to me that maybe drinking, gambling, and new wave music stretched my unconscious expectations of the Hiking Club

    I got the at 8:45. I could not find anyone. I saw the sign, but did not see anyone.

    The 3rd race is named after us tonight. The race starts at 8pm. We will have a group Santa Monica Hiking Club picture after the race. Please be there at 7:45 if you want to be in the photo.

    Looks like the fix is in Larry

    Santa Monica Hiking Club is SPONSERING the 3rd RACE. Haha. Just looked at the racing program on-line and see that "Santa Monica Hiking Club" is printed above the 3rd Race. I believe that means we are sponsering the 3rd race.

    Larry T nailed it with the discription. We are going to have our picture taken with the winning horse after the 7th race. Make sure you are there by the 7th race.

    May 10, 2012

  • Todd L.

    I will have a sign at Wittinghams pub that says Santa Monica Hiking Club. Also look for the drunk people.

    The concert is in a grassy area. No seating. Be prepared to stand up through the concert. Good idea to stake a claim to some real estate close to the stage by 9:00 PM if you want to keep the group together.
    However, I'm not sure about what you have to do to get into Whittingham's Pub but I'm pretty sure you can access it from the South End of the Grandstands.
    The concert is on the North End of the Grandstands. ................

    I've been going to the Summer Friday night concerts @ Hollywood Park for years so here's some advice.
    Get there by 7:30 so you are sure to get parked and through the line and into the gates by 8:30 PM. (there will be several gates open)
    At 8:31 PM the admission goes from $10.00 to $20.00. In the past there was no consideration on the admission no matter if you were in line. If you haven't paid by 8:30 PM, the price is $20.00.
    Parking is free.
