Due to an issue with our regular program, we had the opportunity on the 7th to hear from several of our members about ongoing projects.  From left:  Karin talked about the recent visit several members made to Corazon De Vida, an orphanage in Tijuana; they met with the staff and had a great time interacting with all the wonderful children.  Next, Debra provides an update to the Fiji Water Project - there has been close to 1200 units deployed in the previous island district, and the team is starting training and planning deployment in a new district.  Then, Carter Shuffler provided a quick review of the Veterans Village Fishing Trip; this great opportunity that he and Alan Brown ramrodded provided a successful day of fishing to over 40 homeless veterans and is projected to be a yearly club project.
 
We are gearing up (ha ha) for our 2018 Ride the Point to be held on November 10th,  and cordially invite … and really hope …  that you will ride with us this year. Signing up is easy at  http://ridethepoint.org 
 
As an added incentive to sign up for this year's ride, David & Nancee Nichols of the San Diego Bicycle Coalition and CycloVets have graciously agreed to hold training rides exclusively for Ride the Point riders! It will be a chance to get ready for the November 10th ride, to get to know your fellow riders, and enjoy a beautiful Saturday San Diego morning riding with fellow bike enthusiasts.
 
There will be no charge for the rides, which will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Oggi’s, Liberty Station on:
 
Saturday, September 29th (Point Loma hilly ride, about 17 miles)
 
Saturday, November 3rd (Point Loma very hilly ride including tide pools, about 22 miles)
 
You must be at least 21 years old to participate in the training rides and you will be asked to sign a liability waiver that morning before you ride. Bring your own bike and water and come join us to get ready for Ride the Point 2018.

On Aug. 26th, Rotary Club of Point Loma and Veterans Village of San Diego hosted the First Annual Veteran's Fishing Day.  The event included a free day of fishing for about 50 veterans on one of San Diego's premier fishing boat, the Daily Double.  The boat departed from the Point Loma Sportfishing pier at 9:00 AM and returned around 6:00 PM.  Most anglers were successful there were smiles from all the participants upon returning to the pier.  Special thanks to Alan Brown and Carter Shuffler for all their hard work in putting together this event.  Click on the title above to see additional pictures.
