2024 Annual Kickoff Party
Our 2024 Kickoff Party will be held at the Rock Bottom Brewery in Englewood Sunday, March 17 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please RSVP as soon as you can so that we can get a head count for the party! Final RSVPs aren't due until closer to the date, but the sooner we can get a handle on our group size, the better off we will be.
See the Rock Bottom Website for details about the location: https://rockbottom.com/locations/south-denver
We hope to see everyone (plus guests) there. It is a great annual event to kick off our riding season and we always have a good time, good food and good (or at least interesting) raffle prizes. We do expect the prizes to be down again this year as many of our sponsors are not in a position to be as generous as they have in the past. Therefore, if you are asking a sponsor about donations, please be gentle and understanding with them. Also, if you are talking to someone about a donation-please let Lynn know (we don't want to have multiple people hitting someone up).
Note that there has been a price increase at Rock Bottom this year (as there has been everywhere), which results in a price increase for attendance this year. The price will be $20.00 for Club members and $25.00 for non-Club members. Non-Club members will receive a coupon for $5.00, valid through May 15, 2024, that may be used toward the payment of their membership dues for 2024.
Exact change or checks made payable to CC Riders would be greatly appreciated. If you have not yet renewed your paid membership by Kickoff, you will be able to do so at the party.
You will have a choice from four lunch entrees: Cheeseburger, Chef's Salad, Mac & Cheese or Pulled Pork Sliders. If you have dietary needs that none of these will fit, please contact Lynn or Nancy when you RSVP to discuss.
The price includes unlimited soft drinks, coffee or tea. The Club will pick up the tab for all lunches, taxes, service charges and gratuities for the meal.
There will also be a cash bar. If you wish an appetizer or dessert, that will also be your own responsibility-along with any tips/taxes/ service fees etc for the cash bar and any other extras you might choose. Note: there will be a $1.00 service fee added to each check by Rock Bottom. Our function will be held in the Buffalo Lounge (the same place as previous years).
We will hold a drawing for donated prizes from sponsors and members (including the odd and whacky prizes we have come to know and love). We'll have to see how donations from sponsors come through this year, as it has been difficult couple of years for everyone. Tickets for the drawing are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
If you have a relationship with a sponsor/vendor, please coordinate with them on promotional items appropriate for prizes. AGAIN, PLEASE BE UNDERSTANDING IF THEY ARE UNABLE TO DONATE THIS YEAR, OR IF THEY ARE DONATING LESS THAN IN THE PAST. If you have something that you would personally like to donate as a prize, please contact one of the officers or Lynn. The prizes at this event always range from odd to fabulous-but it is always entertaining, at a minimum. Lynn and Nancy will soon be working on the famous goodie baskets for the year.
This is a rain or shine event. Please RSVP ASAP. If you are attending with guests, please note the number of guests in your RSVP. If you have a problem with your RSVP, or a question, reach out to Lynn or Nancy.
If you have any questions, please contact an officer or Lynn or Nancy. We will be happy to answer as best as we are able.
Let's kick-off the 2024 riding season in style! See you at Kick-Off.
