2014 Northern California Roundup Memories
Lodging At The Clair Tappaan
***Please Make Reservations Now***
The Clair Tappaan Lodge was opened on Christmas Eve, 1934. It is the Sierra Club’s largest and most popular lodge.
The Lodge is operated much like a hostel in that accommodations are modest. You bring your own sleeping bag or you can rent linens at the Lodge. After meals, guests are expected to help out with a simple chore, such as clearing tables in the dining room, taking out the trash, or sweeping the floor. The task is easy, quick, and it provides yet another way of socializing with other GDP’ers.
Please call the Lodge at (530) 426-3632 to make your reservation. While there will be more than enough rooms to accept guests without reservations, by making a reservation, you allow the Lodge’s staff to plan better for our event.
Rate: $60 per night (plus tax)
Includes room and three meals per day.
Please call (530) 426-3632 to make your reservations. The 1-800 number which can be found on the internet is no longer being used, so please disregard it and use this telephone number to make your reservations.
Get Your Roundup T-Shirts!
This year, we have asked GDP’er “bamboobast” to assist us with the artwork for our Roundup T-shirt. Boy, did he hit it completely out of the park with this design.
Bamboobast is a really talented artist whose work you may recognize in your refrigerator — that’s right, he is the guy who created the image on the bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing that lurks in your fridge.
Bamboobast’s artwork really captures an extraordinary blend between the local natural setting for the Roundup and the musical/guitar emphasis of the event. A truly superb job, bamboobast! For those of you who have yet to attend the Roundup, this bridge is called “Rainbow Bridge” and it is located about a mile from the Clair Tappaan Lodge where the Roundup is held.
So, as always with our t-shirts, time is short and we need to put together our order quickly so that we can get them printed in time for the Roundup.
As in past years, the shirts will be Gildan shirts, which are very high quality 100% cotton t-shirts. The shirts will be available only in the indigo color shown. They will be available in the following sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large, XXX-Large, XXXX-Large, XXXXX-Large, or XXXXXX-Large. The shirts will cost $10.00.
If you want a shirt, you will need to order them in advance as we will not be printing more shirts than have been ordered. Make sure that you specify both the size *and* the quantity.
If you would like a shirt, send an email to Ric12string through the GDP. If you don’t receive a reply acknowledging your order within 24 hours, then please send another email.
We will give this about one week’s time before we close off the orders.
Okay, let the ordering commence.
