ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR 2013


Please join your cycling friends at the EBC Annual Celebration Banquet to reminisce on the year's activities, acknowledge our volunteers, celebrate our achievements, and welcome in the newly elected club officers for the upcoming year. The Banquet is the time to reflect on the past year and reaffirm your interest in cycling. Sometimes, it’s the only time of year when the Saturday riders meet the Sunday Hollywood riders or when the weekend riders meet the weekday riders. The Banquet is traditionally the largest gathering of your fellow Club Members.  2013 Club President, Xavier Falconi and Vice President, Mary Beth Garcia will be the Masters of Ceremonies.  

This year's banquet will feature some wonderful door prizes, drawn at random, donated by our sponsors.

The banquet is one of the best benefits of being an EBC Club Member as EBC subsidizes a percentage of the banquet costs as a gift to our loyal EBC Club Members.  We have had an overwhelming response and sold out the last 2 year’s banquet.  Therefore, we have found a larger space to accommodate our members this year. 

Seating is Limited and EBC’s banquet has sold out 3 weeks prior to the event last year.


Please reserve early and NOW and NO LATER THAN February 5th @ 9:00 AM!!!.  There will be NO WALK IN RESERVATIONS THE DAY OF THE EVENT.  Please contact Mary Beth Garcia with any questions @ Mary Beth Garcia @ mbg2426@gmail.com or 305-389-5156


Thank you for your continuous support of EBC.  Xavier and the EBC Board Members look forward to seeing you all at the Banquet soon !!!
