Subject: [CR]Velo Rendezvous entry deadline change

With the events of the last two weeks I have decided to extend the deadline for the $30 entry fee from today, September 21st to September the 28th, next Friday.

If there is any possible way for you to attend, please do. The list of bikes that will be on display is nothing short of phenomenal and the list of people attending is too! I think everyone will get a kick out of the Symposium. It looks to be very entertaining and educational besides ;) and the BBQ, bike show, parts exchange Sunday should be unforgettable.

There are CR list members coming from New York City, Boston, Kansas, Arizona, Washington, and Japan!!! Again... you don't want to miss this event if it is all possible for you to attend.

Please come. --Chuck Schmidt

Dates: October 6 & 7, 2001 (follows 2001 Las Vegas Interbike Show by three days).

Location: Pasadena, California is fifteen minutes north east of downtown Los Angeles. Click here for aerial photo of Pasadena and Arroyo Seco area. Mt. Wilson (elev. 5200 ft) pictured is five air miles from Pasadena (elev. 750 ft). La Casita del Arroyo is at the bottom left of the photo. http://www.velo-retro.com/Pasadena.jpg

Venues: La Casita del Arroyo, Pasadena -- Built in 1933, this "little house" is constructed of stones from the famous Pasadena Arroyo and wood from the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Velodrome that had been built inside the Rose Bowl Stadium for the Olympics. It's nestled in the rustic Arroyo Seco close by the Rose Bowl, an area noted for its 1900s Arts & Crafts Movement bugalows. The architect was Myron Hunt who also designed the Rose Bowl Stadium, Huntington Hotel [now Ritz-Carlton], Pasadena City Hall and Pasadena City Library. Click here for a panoramic photo of La Casita with the Colorado Street Bridge (the Rose Bowl is on the other side of the bridge). http://www.velo-retro.com/Casita.jpg

Brookside Park, Pasadena -- Location of the Rose Bowl Stadium (constructed 1922). Click here for an aerial view of the Rose Bowl Stadium with the San Gabriel mountains in the background. http://www.velo-retro.com/RoseBowl.jpg

Schedule: October 6, Saturday -- Velo Symposium (guest speakers, discussion and featured discussion bike display), 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at La Casita del Arroyo (lunch will be catered), followed by a vintage bike ride in the afternoon and dinner at a local restaurant. Speakers so far: -Brett Horton on collecting historically significant jerseys, photos, and posters with some items from his collection. -Brian Baylis on building frames with just a file, a vise, and a torch with some examples of his work. -Rex Gephart on a photo visit to the Masi Workshop under the Vigorelli Velodrome in Milan. -Seth Finkelstein with a show and tell on derailleurs from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. -Dennis Crowley on Pasadena cycling lore (ie: the Tournament of Roses and Rose Parade started out as a bicycle race and bicycle parade). Tentative speakers so far: -Owen Mulholland on the Tour Legends, The Giants of the Road, and his upcoming book on vintage racing history. October 7, Sunday -- Vintage bike ride at 9 am from Brookside Park, followed at 11:00 am by vintage bike show, parts exchange, and BBQ picnic. The food and drink will be provided. The bike show will be judged by the bike show entrants (a tally of three votes from each entrant: first, second and third choice). The parts exchange will be a very low-key swap meet, since we will be in a grassy, secluded picnic area.

Entry Fee: $30 for two days that includes a catered lunch Saturday, BBQ Lunch Sunday plus admission to all events. Late entry after September 28 will be $40.
