October Brunch:  there will NOT be a Region 9 brunch for October.  This is due to the fact that I will be attending the IPA U.S. Section’s National Delegates Convention in NYC and the arrival of the group of 60 Irish police cyclists during the week.  So the October brunch is cancelled.  Instead of a brunch there will be a ‘Meet and Greet’ group dinner with the group of Irish police cyclists, IPA members, and of the Irish Consulate.  The ‘Meet and Greet’ dinner will be at the Holding Company Restaurant, Two Embarcadero, 2nd level, (San Francisco) at 7:30pm on Friday, October 10th. The cost is $35 per person.  First VP Dennis Burke will be the lead contact person for this group. For the Irish meet and greet dinner, RSVP: burkedennisr@aol.com
