Denver RS meeting on March 16

Is the RS meeting for the Denver group on March 16 at 10AM at the Panera's on 730 S. Santa Fe still on? Interested in going and couldn't find the posting where I saw it last month. Thanks.

So far as I know. Lee usually posts a reminder a week or so ahead. It's at 7301 S Santa Fe Dr, Littleton, CO 80120, in the Aspen Grove shopping center (near the intersection of Mineral and S. Santa Fe).

I usually post it a week or less before the event, because one of our members is easily confused. If I posted the reminder a week and a half in advance, this individual would show up the next Saturday, a week early.

OK, now I can post it. The March meeting is NEXT Saturday, the 16th. Time: 10 AM. Place: Panera Bread in Aspen Grove, at Santa Fe and Mineral.

From Jerry from Monument, it is just a couple miles north of the C-470 and Santa Fe (85) intersection. Pretty easy to find.

Actually, it is 1.1 mile from C-470 to the intersection of Santa Fe and Mineral. There is a big pedestrian bridge for the light rail just north of the intersection. From the intersection, you can either go under the bridge, another 4/10th mile north on Santa Fe, to the main entrance of Aspen Grove. From there, Panera is in the back left corner of the Grove. Or, you can go the back way. Turn left just before the bridge, onto Mineral, then 1/10th mile to S. Platte Pkwy (2nd right, just before 7/11), then go 2/10th mile to the stop sign. Turn right at the stop sign; Panera is the first building on the right.

Someone is getting too precise. Just send him the GPS coordinates.

Sorry, I won't be there. Off to Belize tomorrow! By the way, Lee, I found your "back way" instructions very useful. I wasn't aware of that, and will have to try it next time.

If the weather is good, I will ride my VESPA.

You need good weather to ride a Vespa? Somebody should tell the Romans. A couple of weeks ago we were in very rainy weather in Rome and there were still plenty Vespas and motorinos around, more fun on the wet cobbles. Even had a few on the via Appia Antica.

I am brave but not stupid. I like to avoid slick roads with two wheels.

Nigel, the weather and road conditions in Colorado are not like those in Rome (or the East Midlands). At this time of year, precipitation usually means snow and sometimes a lot of it.

Which can lead to patches of ice on the roads, which even if no problem for cars, are bad news for scooters.

That was a fun meeting! Thanks to everyone who showed up. The discussions were great, and we even had some gorgeous photos to look at! I'd asked Lee to bring along his Campmor bag so I could see it; the Campmor site has only a wee photo of it, which isn't great for shopping purposes. He very kindly did so, and after the meeting I got to inspect the famous bag. I've now ordered one (thirty bucks) for myself. We'll see if I can make it work for a trip! Hope to see Frank, Charlene, and others who missed yesterday, again next month.
