Molly Ride 2014

Dear Friends of Molly

The 4th annual “Ride on Molly” Memorial Ride has been scheduled for Saturday, May 10, 2014.  This year’s ride will originate from the site of our first 2 memorial rides, the very popular Temecula Creek Inn.  Our ride will take us on one of Molly’s favorite routes to Borrego Springs, and hopefully the desert will be in bloom.  Even if not in bloom, Borrego Springs is a beautiful desert location and lunch is planned at the Red Ocotillo, located in the lodge built in 1948.  This is truly a throwback to the 50’s and an experience you won’t want to miss.

As in the past, all monies contributed by the attendees will support a college fund for Molly’s daughter Brooke.  Contributions are not mandatory for your participation, but Brooke and Terry sincerely appreciate any and all donations.  If you are able to contribute, please bring your check made out to “Molly Memorial Education Fund”.  If you are not able to attend but wish to contribute, a check made payable to “Molly Memorial Education Fund” can be mailed to:
            Molly Memorial Education Fund
            c/o Alan DeCarr
            6446 Fairwind Circle
            Huntington Beach, Ca. 92648

A special group rate of $189.00/night has been arranged, and a limited room block has been confirmed for Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10.  Book your rooms early to ensure the group rate by calling the hotel and reserving under the Molly Memorial Ride room block.  Rooms will be available for booking for either one night or two nights.  Due to the early ride departure time on Saturday, many of us prefer to arrive on Friday, May 9 and enjoy the Temecula hospitality…….and the occasional cocktail at the Inns bar!

The planned ride route accommodates motorcycles and automobiles, so bring your family and friends along and enjoy the day as we continue to pay our respects to a great man known simply as “MOLLY”.

Lodging information is as follows:
            Temecula Creek Inn
            44501 Rainbow Canyon Rd
            Temecula, Ca. 92592
            (951) 694-1000

Saturday’s itinerary is rather basic:  Eat, Ride, Eat, Party, Eat, & Tell your favorite Molly story.  It doesn’t get much better than this.  Of course, it does get better since Molly’s great friends at Manheim Auction have agreed to coordinate and pay for Saturday’s activities.

Should you have any questions or require any additional information, please contact J.R. Smith.  J.R.’s contact information is as follows:
            (866) 275-1294

So mark your calendars and join the many friends of Molly who will join us for yet another great “Molly Memorial Ride”.
