Hot August Nights At Sierra View a Big Hit (Again)

Sierra View Country Club Hot August Nights

This year’s Hot August Nights was the best ever. We had nearly 70 cars, both vintage and classic parked around the fairways of Sierra View Country Club of Roseville. Guests enjoyed craft beer tasting with Lagunitas and California Brewery pouring their great beverages. Chef Tom Broxham wowed everyone with his BBQ skills. The band Rolling Heads provided live music and the dancing was great fun to watch. Give the Rolling Heads band a big old Like on their Facebook page.

Just like in past years, at the end of the evening the owners of the cars on display ask a guest to jump in the passenger seat for a parade of cars around the course. They stay on the cart paths, naturally. At that time of the day, the golf course is just about as pretty as it can be.

Watch this video of the event and make sure you know the date for the 2017 Hot August Night at Sierra View Country Club. It’s one of the highlights of the year.

The women of Sierra View Country Club have selected Roseville’s Taylor House as a recipient of donations collected at tournaments and meeting days.

The Taylor House is a special place that helps young women who are transitioning out of foster care. Girls are provided with a safe place to stay while they bridge to independent living.

Uber For Club Events

Uber

Members may not all be aware that Uber, the ride network so popular in larger urban areas, also operates in Roseville, Rocklin, Granite Bay, Lincoln, and Loomis.

Next time you plan to come to Sierra View Country Club for a party or event, such as the upcoming Super Bowl on February 1 or the Valentines Dance on February 14, and for sure New Year’s Eve, relieve yourself of the worry of driving home by setting up your Uber account now.

The advantages of using Uber are many. First, you don’t pay with cash. It’s cashless! No mental calculations about how much to tip because your fare includes a tip. You’ll know what your approximate fare is on your phone before you order your ride, so there are no surprises. We have found the fares to be on par with taxis and sometimes lower. Here’s another cool advantage: Your smart phone’s display tracks the location of the driver. You can wait in the lobby and sprint out the door when your phone display shows the car pulling in the parking lot.

Sounds good? Here’s how you get yourself set up with Uber. Have your credit card handy when you start this process.

On your iPhone or Android phone’s browser, go to the URL http://www.uber.com. Depending on your device, you’ll see either “Sign Up” or “Sign Up For Uber.” You will be prompted to enter your email address and fill in short profile: Name, Mobile Phone Number, Language, and Credit Card information. Once that’s done, Uber will download its app to your phone. When you need Uber to take you somewhere, all you do is tap the app, put in your destination address, and Uber will tell you the fare amount. Tap “Yes” and your phone will tell you how long before the Uber driver arrives. You can actually track the car’s approach on your phone’s Uber map image. It’s pretty amazing, and a god-send if you question your ability to drive. Don’t risk it!

One more really cool thing: Let’s say you are sharing Uber with another person or couple. Uber lets you split the fare equally. Each rider’s card gets charged exactly half the fare. So make sure your friends are Uber-ready too!

We were in San Francisco during the 2014 holidays and used Uber for the first time. Even though we had driven into San Francisco, we preferred using Uber rather than deal with driving and parking, driving and reparking. Our driver was pleasant and funny, the car was a Prius, for pete’s sake, and the process was smooth as glass. No fuss, no muss. No fumbling for bills, no stress. And Uber even emails you a receipt immediately after your drop-off.

So Sierra View members, come and enjoy the club’s events knowing that Uber is your party partner.
