Cascade Region event status due to COVID-19 concerns
I hope everyone is continuing to do well, and staying healthy. I wanted to update you all on where we are with club events at this time.
All counties within Cascade Region have entered Phase 2 of the virus mitigation protocols. As such, both chapters of our club have resumed events starting in late June.
Our focus at all times is the health and well-being of our members, as well as that of others with whom we interact. As a club, we need to respect and follow the rules, regulations and recommendations from our state and local officials, health care professionals, PCA National, and the PCA’s insurance carriers.
Here are some of the things that we need to work with for the duration. Please note that the process could change a bit as we learn what works and what doesn’t.
We are aware that some of this may seem to be a bit of overkill, given the happy fact that our counties here in Oregon are not suffering from widespread illness at this time. But these are the guidelines we must live with for now. We hope that all members understand that many of these measures are not to protect ourselves as much as they are to stop the potential spread to others, who may have a significantly higher risk factor than do you or I. Please respect that possibility for these others and act (and mask) accordingly.
As always, if you have questions or comments, please send them to email@example.com.
Thanks for all of your understanding!
This calendar shows 4 different event categories. They are:
- Cascade Region, Central Chapter
- Cascade Region, Southern Chapter
- Events in nearby PCA regions
- Non-PCA events of possible interest
Join Mike and Robin Vanderford for a last drive of the season on Saturday, October 12th. We’ll meander the autumn countryside through Jacksonville and the Applegate valley and on to Merlin where we will take a quick journey north on I5 to the old ghost town of Golden (we will take a short rest stop in Murphy, never fear!). Golden is interesting as a gold mining town known for having 2 churches and NO saloons. We will spend awhile there seeing the few remaining buildings and learning a bit about its history. Then we’ll back-track a short way to the Wolf Creek Inn for lunch.
Meet at Barnes and Noble in Medford at 9:00 am for a 9:30 am sharp departure. RSVP’s are needed for the lunch reservation. Email Robin at address provided in Eblast message.
Join us on our Drive to the Umpqua Valley on Saturday, October 12. We’ll meet at the Loews on W 11th in Eugene at 9:30 am and roll south promptly at 10:00 am. Our destination is Cooper Ridge Vineyards. There are no freeway segments on this drive! Some roads may be familiar, but they are all rural two lanes.
Cooper Ridge offers small plates for a light lunch for $15 or you are free to bring your own picnic. Rather than a formal wine tour, the drive will end at Cooper Ridge and participants can choose the wineries they’d like to visit. Click on this link for an excellent map of the wineries in the area.
Please RSVP for the Drive so that we can give an accurate count to Cooper Ridge.
