BRIGHTON DADDY-DAUGHTER DANCE
We ran into Hometownies, like the dapper duo of Scooter and his lovely daughter, and made tons of new friends. Our table was parked alongside a favorite sponsor neighbor, Brennan Investment Services, and we enjoyed hanging out with our sure-know-how-to-throw-a-party SELCRA friends!
Congratulations to Julianna Gilbert, Selah Targosz, and dad Eric Santry who all won Hometown’s Daddy-Daughter Drawings for cool cycling prizes!
Winter storms put the kibosh on last week’s event, but that’s just given Hometownies more time to sign up – we’re up to over 50 attending, and that means an EPIC potluck selection of sloppy joes, chili, venison stroganoff, cheesy potatoes, veggie enchiladas, fruit salad, sweets, beer… if you’ve been on the fence, the food alone should sway you – come!!
At this party, you’ll learn about the best MI cycling parks and routes, and pick up your copy of the highly anticipated 2018 LMB Michigan Ride Calendar. You’ll also hear from guest speaker Jim Plaunt of Bike Tour Vacations, who’s worked up a special promotion just for Hometownies!
You’ll get our 2018 Spring Shop Ride agenda (spoiler alert – it’s awesome!), and meet the cool people you’ll get to ride them with! PLUS, this March 15th party (deadline extended!) is your LAST CHANCE to sign up for our all-inclusive, all-about-making-it-fun cycling Team!! (We’re currently 87 strong – CLICK HERE to see why so many riders have drunk the kool-aid!)
