Our memorial drive and ceremony for Buzz Dawson is on Saturday Sept 20


The Hwy 9 Memorial Drive for our dear friend Buzz will take place on Saturday, Sept 20th. We will meet at Starbucks Coffee in Saratoga at 3pm, leave for drive @3:30pm. Here is the address:

12960 Saratoga-Sunnyvale Rd
Saratoga, CA 95070

We will have some commemorative LOL PWR stickers to give out on Saturday. It would be great if everyone who joins us on the drive put it on their car in remembrance of Buzz. We ask that you consider donating to Buzz’s memorial space launch fund if you could. Sandy will be there so please give your donations to her and she will take care of sending them on to Alexia.

Please note we will not be giving out 86DRIVE STARS for participating in this drive. I want people to come out to honor Buzz, not because they want to earn a STAR. Thanks for understanding.

The drive will be to highway 9 and skyline, eat at Alices, maybe take a drive down La Honda and back, then continue up to 280/92 junction and carpool to Crystal Lake Reservoir. Buzz’s wife Alexia has requested us to carpool if we can due to limited parking. The ceremony at 7PM Crystal Lake Resevior will be with some of Buzz’s close friends in the Bay Area.

Some info for the event from David (the host):

> The event will start around 7pm on Sat, Sept 20th.

> This will be the memorial for Buzz. There will be a short eulogy, a short open mike period for those who’d like to share stories about Buzz, and then Buzz’s ashes will be spread in accordance with his wishes (I think you’ll like that part.)

> The event will be on the shore of Crystal Springs Reservoir. If you are going along 280 between Sf and San Jose, there is an exit for Hwy’s 92 and 35. Follow the signs to Half Moon Bay, but do NOT cross the isthmus dividing the lake. There is parking along the Hwy 92/Canada Rd roadway. Park facing south. Follow the signs:

> Please bring a blanket to sit on and any food or libations you’d like to have during the ceremony. We’ll be sitting on a small hill, so blankets aren’t necessary, but will make it cozy. The event starts just before sundown, so a jacket is probably a good idea.
