PostMods MEMBERS & FUTURE MEMBERS WELCOME
Happy New Year fellow scooterists!
The PostMods are ringing in the new year on Sunday, January 5th with a potluck dinner co-hosted by Revolution Moto. Are you not yet a member but interested in joining the PostMods? You are cordially invited to this MEMBERS ONLY EVENT, and everyone is invited to bring a favorite dish to share with the group.
NO RIDE THIS MONTH, JUST A CLUB MEETING TO PLAN FOR 2020!!
As the PostMods’ Director of Membership and Recruitment, it is my sincerest honor to give voice to the club’s hopes and aspirations for 2020. While we sit down to a nice meal together, I shall introduce members to the upcoming elections taking place in the first week of March (see below). I’ll present a progress report for this year’s fundraiser raffle and plans for the final push in selling the remaining $50 raffle tickets for the brand new Vespa GTS300.
The meeting’s itinerary shall focus on the new year’s riding season, upcoming club events and most importantly, filling up the monthly ride calendar for the 2020 season. I ask that everyone be sure to bring with them plenty of great ride route ideas, destinations of interest and any fun ideas y’all may have for group outings in and around Sonoma’s wine country.
The PostMods elections shall take place from March 1st – March 8th, shall be held remotely via an ElectionRunner app with online voting, and every current club member shall get to cast a vote for the following office openings, and others as requested:
Have anyone in mind that you’d like to nominate for a leadership role? Want to throw your hat in the ring for a position you see above, or have you a role in mind that you don’t see listed here? Please email Admin@PostModsSC.com and get on the upcoming election ballot!
RSVP’s are required and very much appreciated by Thursday, January 2nd, so we can discuss who’s bringing what and how many folks we need to feed. Once the headcount is determined, I’ll email all participants a menu breakdown.
We’ll need to rent tables and chairs for the club meeting, so if any of you have a connection at a local business/club/church from whom we might be able to rent or borrow, please email me straight away!
While there shall be NO GROUP RIDE PLANNED IN JANUARY 2020, current and future PostModsters are encouraged to share with the group your favorite routes, backroads and destinations.
Want to join the club? See Pete on or before the Sunday meeting for all the deets!! Text or call him at 707.293.3101
This January, the PostMods Scooter Squad is raffling off a set of FIVE VESPA GTS300 RAFFLE TICKETS, a prize WORTH $250! For every $20 raffle ticket you purchase, your name shall be entered into a smaller drawing for five club fundraiser tickets, with a grand prize of a 2020 GTS300 worth over $8,500!!!
$20 tickets go on sale on Thursday, January 2nd, and the winner shall be drawn at the January 5th meeting. Need not be present to win. You can Venmo your $20 raffle entry to @PostMods, pay cash in person at RevMoto, or buy your tickets at the outset of Sunday’s meeting. All proceeds go toward our not-for-profit scootering social club!
December 15th marks the last group ride of 2019 and, rain or shine, Revolution Moto shall be hosting this year’s PostMods Festival of Lights from 5-10pm. Pack all the battery-powered lights your scooter can carry, bring your favorite decorations and make your way to Revolution Moto to don your ride with festive finery from 5-6pm. There will be refreshments, raffle prizes, and judging for the best decorated scooter begins at 6pm.
DECORATION begins SHARPLY at 5pm
JUDGING begins at 6pm for
MOST FESTIVE SCOOTER!
Prizes shall be awarded for MOST FESTIVE SCOOTER, BEST THEMED DECORATION / COSTUME, BEST USE OF LIGHTS and more. Riders are not required to decorate their scooters and can join the ride skipping all the decorating, but what would be the fun in that??
At 6:30pm sharp, the group mounts up for a nighttime scooter ride on a hunt to find some of Santa Rosa’s most scenic and dimly lit side streets, then we’ll wind our way back to STEELE AND HOPS by 8pm for dinner. The PostMods shall be buying dinner for everyone, club members and non-members alike!!
In the event of rain on Sunday Dec.15th, we’ll simply skip the decorating and the ride, jumping straight to dinner with an official meet-up at Steele and Hops at 8pm. The ride’s organizers will make “the weather call” on the weekend of the event, and will send out a confirmation email to everyone who has reserved a spot on the ride.
All rider experience levels are welcome to join this month’s group ride, from newbie to seasoned veteran. Our route shall consist of only in-town side streets and citywide speed limits, perfect for those who prefer to avoid fast-paced scootering events. ONLY THE FIRST 40 SCOOTERISTS TO RSVP MAY RIDE WITH THE GROUP!!
Stay tuned on Instagram this week for more upcoming news and gift ideas from RevMoto 2.0. We have lots of thoughtful one-of-a-kind gifts for the scooterist on your holiday shopping list this season!
Revolution Moto is a proud sponsor of the PostMods Scooter Squad. As a co-founder of the PostMods social club in 2015, it seemed only natural that RevMoto would become the new PostMods global headquarters once Pete Surber became RevMoto’s new owner in April 2019. Throughout 2020, we shall strive to grow the club thru monthly group rides, public and private events, social outreach and volunteerism.
