This weekend brings another string of events to Rancho Murieta and the area. On Saturday, you can have fun (and food and music) at a baseball fundraiser at Lake Clementia. On Sunday, you can ride a bike on Scott Road and get a peek at the new season for Entertainment, Theatre & Culture. Here’s the info:


Murieta Bulldogs Summer Kickoff, 1 p.m., Lake Clementia Amphitheater

There will be music and beer, wine and cocktails, barbecue samples, hot dogs and soda at the Bulldogs Summer Kickoff, a fundraiser for a new youth baseball team. The Cripple Creek Band will perform country and Southern rock, as they have previously for Entertainment, Theatre & Culture and the Country Club.

Adult tickets are $35, tickets for children ages 6-15 are $7 and younger children are free.

The Murieta Bulldogs, founded last year, are a competitive baseball team for boys 12 and under, playing about 80 games a year around Northern California.

Tickets and more information: murietabulldogs.com.


Eighth annual Great Scott! Bike and Walk Event, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event opens up more than 30 miles of beautiful country roads to bikes and walkers. Scott Road and a stretch of White Rock Road are limited to cyclists and pedestrians for seven hours.  There are a couple of food stops on the route. The event is free.

For Murietans, the best entry point is at Scott and Latrobe roads, just beyond the north end of Stonehouse Road. For the convenience of those taking part, the Rancho Murieta Association says it will open the Escuela gate on Stonehouse Road, next to Stonehouse Park, but only for pedestrians and bicyclists, not cars.

Entertainment, Theatre & Culture’s kickoff event, 3-5 p.m., Country Club

A free event, with wine tasting and food provided by local restaurants. You’ll be able to buy your ETC membership and concert tickets, volunteer for concert duties and win valuable prizes.

Saturday morning: Cars and Coffee

Another weekend event: The inaugural Cars and Coffee, a summertime, first-Saturday-morning gathering of classic cars, will take place from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Country Club's lower parking lot, by the tennis courts. Organizer John McNamee says he's modeling the event after others of this name all over the country. He says they'll try it monthly through August and see where they go from there. The club's snack shack will have coffee for sale, and McNamee is hoping for 75 to 100 cars.
