Calpaca Fiber Committee - We are moving into a new direction for Calpaca – with a focus on fiber, products, marketing and education, and hope you will be able to attend the meeting, and join in the efforts to establish a more viable market for our fiber.   At this meeting, we will introduce ways Calpaca is prepared, now, to help move our fiber into the marketplace, and educate the consumer on the benefits of alpaca.  We will also be working with the members to formulate and act on plans to get our fiber into production, and profits into your pocket.  We’d like your input, and your assistance, in developing and implementing the plans that we as a group come up with that benefit us all.

 

Lunch will be a Pot-Luck.  Please bring something to share, as well as a chair!

Directions:

From Bay Area, and Sacramento area head East on Hwy 80 toward Reno.  In Auburn, take Hwy 49 toward Grass Valley.  Once in Grass Valley, take the last exit, BRUNSWICK RD, and turn RIGHT onto BRUNSWICK RD.  Travel about 2 miles until you come to a 4-way stop sign with a blinking red light.  Turn LEFT at that STOP sign onto Greenhorn RD (East Bennett will be on your right).  Go 3.1 miles, & just past “Tensy Lane” on your left, we are the next driveway on your RIGHT.  We share a driveway with 15891 Greenhorn, so stay left onto the gravel  drive and follow it to the house, about 1/4 mile.  If you get to Christmas Tree Lane you went too far.

From Reno:  Hwy 80 West towards Sacramento.  Exit Hwy 20, and follow to Grass Valley.  Take Brunswick Road exit, turn left over freeway.  Go about 2 miles until you reach the blinking 4-way stop light.  Greenhorn Road is on your left (East Bennett will be on your right): turn left onto Greenhorn.  Go 3.1 miles, & just past “Tensy Lane” on your left, we are the next driveway on your RIGHT.  We share a driveway with 15891 Greenhorn, so stay left onto the gravel  drive and follow it to the house, about 1/4 mile.  If you get to Christmas Tree Lane you went too far.
