Run Report: San Diego Roadsters Palm Springs Run

[This post submitted by WCKCC Secretary Robert Novak, also to be published in the November newsletter.]

Your Treasurer Jena and Secretary Robert, and their co-pilots, joined guests from the Phoenix club on October 20 for the San Diego Roadsters annual run to Palm Desert/Palm Springs.

Thanks to the San Diego Roadsters for inviting us down, and especially Bob and Patti Brown and Myrna for making a great event happen.

24 Kappas on the run!

The run included 24 Kappas (18 Sky, 3 Solstice convertibles, 3 Solstice coupes) over the approximately 180 mile drive on Saturday. Starting in Redlands, we climbed to over 8000 feet within the San Bernadino National Forest before coming back down the hill to The Oaks restaurant for breakfast.

The crew took to the road again heading through Yucaipa and Beaumont and on through Idyllwild in the Santa Rosa Wilderness to the obligatory ice cream stop at Dairy Queen in Anza. I don’t think the restaurant staff were prepared for 40 customers at once, but we were all served.

From DQ we headed to the Coachella Valley Vista Point for a photo stop (featured photo at top) before heading down into Palm Desert to the hotel and dinner at Don Diego’s of Indian Wells.

It was great to meet some former (and possibly future) WCKCC drivers; several San Diegans were looking forward to seeing our club grow and get more active, and some are also interested in coming up to join some future runs with us!
