The Armadillo Chapter recently set
up the following social media sites for our Chapter:
Metro New York
Metro New York Chapterís first luncheon
in 2018 will take place at noon on Saturday, 9 June at Prato
Trattoria in Carmel Hamlet, NY., southeast corner of Putnam
County just north of the Westchester County line (about 60
miles N/NE of midtown Manhattan). One of this Italian
restaurantís owners is Descendant Angela Spaccarelli (the
late Isadore De Luccia, 85-G). She suggested the location
and it seems like an appropriate and good fit plus a chance
for Descendants and others from northern suburbs and exurbs
of N.Y.C. to enjoy a convenient locale.

The Biathlon that we sponsor will be Sunday, January 14,
2018 at the Auburn Ski Hut at Boreal Ridge. This event has
been going on for a good 30 years and I've been involved for
the last dozen or so years. This is a cross country and
shooting event open to all all ages and if you have never
seen a Biathlon in action I urge you to come to the event in
January. In the past, SN members took an active role in
setting up the event but now that has been completely taken
over by the Auburn ski club members. I will say a few words
at the closing ceremony and then give medals to the winners
but basically everything is done by the Auburn ski club.
Riva Ridge/Mt. Belvedere Luncheon is scheduled for Saturday,
February 17, 2018 and will be held at the Old Spaghetti
Factory in Redwood City. We have been here several times
before and it seems to be a nice venue for our gathering.
So, if you didn't make the luncheon last month we hope to
see you in February!
Our Wine Tasting Picnic will be Saturday, May 19, 2018 and
we will again meet at Sebastiani Winery in Sonoma. We had a
great turnout last May and everyone had a wonderful time.
Again, we hope to see you there!
Val Rios will be giving further information closer to the
date of the events but is hoping you will mark them on your
There is now a Sierra Nevada Chapter Facebook page so please

let Val Rios know if he has missed someone.
