CAVSWCC Rancho Cucamonga Events - May 2016

Baseball and Books! Here's a rundown of some upcoming events in Rancho Cucamonga.

Rancho Cucamonga Quakes
Saturday May 21st
Pre-game: 5:30pm
First Pitch: 7:05pm   

Like baseball? Like Star Wars? Then come out and join us for a ballgame on Saturday May 21st between the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (Dodgers Minor League Affiliate) and the San Jose Giants (well, you can guess which team they're affiliated with)! It's the Quakes' annual STAR WARS NIGHT, which from what I've been told is one of their most popular games of the year filled with plenty of Star Wars wackiness. Plus, minor league baseball is just awesome.

And come out early! Prior to and throughout the game, CAVSWCC has been invited to have a display of vintage collectibles and we'll be there to provide outreach about the club.

If we can get a group of 20, we qualify for a group rate of $8 per ticket. We're about 10 shy, so if you're interested in attending, send me an email at ASAP. If we don't have 20, I'll still arrange for the tickets for confirmed attendees at regular cost.

May 28th (1pm-9pm)
May 29th (10am-4pm)

The club will also have a vintage display and outreach table at the Rancho Cucamonga Public Library's annual "Star Wars Reads" event over Memorial Day Weekend! This 2-day event will see thousands of fans of all ages congregate to celebrate our galaxy far, far away.

We'll also be presenting an introductory panel on vintage collecting on Saturday May 28th from 7:30 - 8:30pm, and again on Sunday May 29th from 11am -12 noon, and 12 noon - 1pm.

 If that's not enough, none other than Lando Calrissian himself, Billy Dee Williams will be a part of the program! From the official press release:
"On Sunday a limited number of people will have the opportunity to see him during “A Conversation with Billy Dee Williams” at the Lewis Family Playhouse. Then he will read to the crowd outside the theatre."

It would be great to see everyone there sometime over the weekend (and perhaps grab dinner Saturday night prior to the panel). If you have any questions about the event or would like to participate, send me an email at

I owe a very special thanks to Allen Callaci from the Rancho Cucamonga Library for reaching out and helping get us involved in these two fantastic events!

See you all soon,
