End of Year Dinner, November 4 5:30pm

Members should reserve the date, Nov 4th, and the time, 5:30pm, to meet for a Mexican dinner at the Cafe’ Silvestre, 3041 E  3300 South, in the Millcreek area of Salt Lake City.   I know we’ve had some amazing lunches prepared for you👍, but this time you’ll need to purchase your own dinner. 😊

This is a casual affair so the guys can leave their tuxedos and black ties hanging in the closet.  Ladies may also dress comfortably for the evening.

We will be having a silent auction for an incredible, high quality picnic basket with all the plates, utensils🍴, glasses🍸, etc. donated to the club by Roger Dotson.  I will be posting pictures of this outstanding item in the days to come.   You’ll certainly want to place a bid or two for this top shelf basket, the proceeds of which will go directly into the Club treasury.   This ain’t no average picnic basket, so get ready to take home this beautiful item.

Please RSVP to Roger Davis at:  rogerdavis87@msn.com

Nebo Loop, Saturday 9/30

On Saturday September 30th the Salt Lake group and points north will meet at the parking lot of the IHC office at 11400 south and Redwood Road at 9:30 for a 10:00 departure, there is plenty of parking. You will Drive south on Redwood Road to the Chevron Top Stop station (36 W 1400 N, Saratoga Springs) for a drain and gain and connect with Utah county members. Steen will meet you there to be the guide.

Depart at 11:00 and drive south on highway 68 west of Utah Lake on a nice newly paved road for a lot of the way. Turn left on highway 6 at the old Sinclair station(and we mean old) and go through Goshen and Genola to Santaquin. Drive through Santaquin and under the freeway and turn left at the light in front of the Maverick Station. We’ll travel north about 2 miles on highway 198 to 12800 south and turn left at the Lewis Feild sign. Drive .2 miles to our daughter’s ranch where we will have lunch prior to our drive over the Nebo Loop.

We’ll plan to arrive there at about noon and try to leave for the drive at 1:00 or shortly after. After lunch we will continue north on highway 198 and turn right on 800 south going east and turn right on Canyon Road then turn right up Payson Canyon. We will plan to make a few short stops in the Canyon for sightseeing and exit the Nebo Loop onto highway 132 turning right toward Nephi. We are planning about 2 hours to drive over the Nebo Loop.

Returning north there are a few options. You can hop on the freeway in Nephi or go under the freeway and stop for a gain and drain at the Chevron station in Nephi then head west to Main Street and turn right and head toward Santaquin. On that road is a charming country store called The Red Barn if any of you would like to stop there. It’s a fun store. From there you head north to Santaquin Main Street and then either turn right and get on the freeway there or turn left and retrace your route around the west of the lake to Redwood Road. Utah county members can turn right and either go on the freeway or go on the side roads through Payson, Salem, Spanish Fork, Springville and Provo.

It will take pretty much all day, but should be a nice day with beautiful scenery and great company.

Alpine Loop Run, September 16th, 2017

The annual Alpine Loop Run will happen on Saturday September 16. We will meet at 8:30 AM or so on the east side of the South Towne Mall (take the 106th South exit off I-15 going east, enter the mall parking lot off 106th South or from State Street about a block north of 106th South). We will plan on departing at 9:00 AM.

Alpine Loop starting directions

For those who are coming from down south, we will be stopping at about 9:45 AM for bio-reconditioning at the C-Store and Chevron Station in Alpine just before SR 92 enters Alpine Canyon.

We will be heading to Big Springs Park again for lunch this year. When we get to the intersection of SR 92 and 189 in Provo Canyon, we will turn RIGHT and head down Provo Canyon approximately 1 mile to South Fork Road. We’ll turn left on South Fork Road and proceed about 3 miles to Big Springs Park for lunch. This is a lovely little park near the end of South Fork. There are bathrooms but no other facilities. Rodger and Jill Davis will be serving up tasty BBQ for lunch, so bring your appetites!

We are planning on cooking hamburgers and hot dogs. The appropriate condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish,etc) will be available along with potato chips, plates, utensils, and napkins.

Bring what you’d like to drink since tastes vary so much it would be impossible to have what you’d want.

After lunch we’ll head up Provo Canyon to Heber/Midway and back to our homes. Should be a nice drive, hope to see you there! For those that want to try a little hill climb, the Guardsman pass road up out of Midway has is paved and is an absolutely lovely drive — and a test of your cooling system!

PLEASE SEND RODGER A BRIEF EMAIL LETTING ME KNOW IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON GOING TO THIS EVENT.

We need to know approximately how many people there will be so that we don’t run out of food, nor purchase way too much.

Trappers Loop/Huntsville Barbeque, 8/19

We’re just a week away from our run over Trappers Loop to the Huntsville Barbecue Company in beautiful Huntsville, Utah next Saturday, 19 August.

We’ll meet at the east end of the Hogle Zoo Parking lot at 9:00 for a 9:30 departure.  We’ll go up Emigration Canyon to Utah 65 where we’ll turn north to East Canyon Reservoir and then west on Utah 66 down the canyon and into Morgan where we’ll drain n’ gain at the Phillips 66 on North State Street near Interstate 84.  From there we go under the interstate onto the Old Highway Road (N 700 E) west to Mountain Green, over Trapper’s Loop (UT 167) North and into Ogden Valley.  Then we’ll turn right onto Utah 39 to go to Huntsville where we’ll have lunch at the Huntsville Barbeque Company on the west side of Huntsville Square (235 South, 7400 East).

Parking will be along the west side of the Huntsville Square park, just across the street from the restaurant.  We’ll order off the menu inside and then they’ll have special seating for us on the shady lawn in the back.

After lunch options to return home include back the way you came, down Utah 39 through Ogden Canyon and onto Highway 89 south back to SLC or, for the more adventurous, you can continue north around the lake to Eden, then Liberty and up/over North Ogden Divide and back onto Highway 89 to return to SLC.

Here’s a link to Google Maps for a preview of the route.  https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XDsW7MYNrO-i4QbKPbYSNiKGxrY&usp=sharing

Gas up the LBC, check the fluids and maybe bring a large wet towel to clean the barbecue off your face and hands before getting back in the car!  Hope everyone can join us for the run.

See you next week!
