70th Annual Banquet of Champions
San Diego Bicycle Club Link to Bottega Americano web site

The Annual Banquet of Champions was held last Sunday at Bottega Americano with a packed house. Thanks to Ralph Elliot for emceeing once again and to all of all of volunteers that helped make this another great evening.

The libations were flowing, the food was plentiful, and the whole crowd had a great time. Several attendees even took home some awesome raffle prizes. Some might have thought that the distribution of winners seemed a bit lopsided but at least two people didn't seem to mind (no names need to be mentioned here).

Check out some photos of the action on FaceBook.
