    • Friday, October 01, 2021
    • 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM
    • Red Barn at Newcastle Wedding Gardens, 950 Taylor Road, Newcastle, CA
    • 26
    Register

    This is a casual event, nothing fancy, but an opportunity to visit each other.  We had to miss our annual holiday party in December and our annual membership dinner in January.  To make up for those losses, we have arranged a BBQ at Newcastle Wedding Gardens Barn.  The barn doors will be open and we have use of the inside and outside patio area so we can have plenty of space for social distancing, visiting and eating.

    We will be presenting awards for Career Achievement, Pro Bono and Access to Justice along with other announcements to include our Tim Coffin Scholarship recipient and the PCBA’s charitable contributions to our community.  It has been a tough decision whether or not to hold any event, but given that a majority of our members have been vaccinated, we feel we can hold this event with safety precautions in place.

    For those fully vaccinated, the use of mask is optional.  For those attending who are not vaccinated, masks are required pursuant to the California Department of Health and Placer County Department of Health.  We want everyone to feel and be safe.

    Your dinner ticket cost includes 2 drink tickets (beer/wine) in addition to blackberry lemonade and flavored water, iced tea/coffee.  Matt has prepared a delectable spin on BBQ that ends with a summer favorite of berry cobbler.  Wear your cowboy hat and boots for this is a fun, casual Friday evening hanging out with faces you haven’t seen much of in the last 18 months.

    Please register no later than September 21.  Late registration fee, beginning September 22 applies.

    Member and Member guest:  $48 per person

    Late Registration and Non-Member:  $58.00


    When locating this event center, traveling east on Taylor Road from Penryn Road, Taylor Road changes from asphalt to "cement" at the Newcastle sign, just past the Valencia.  Just past the Newcastle sign, on your left, look for the log fencing and entrance gate to the parking lot.  If traveling west from Newcastle, turn right at the entrance which is just past the white house. We will try to make the entrance gate easy to find.
