Sounds of the Shores 2015

The first concert of the summer is here! Come out Sunday, June 28 and party in the Shores!

Sundays this Summer, Marlin Park is the place to party! Join your friends and neighbors for the Redwood Shores summer concert series.

Hosted by RSCA, the Sounds of the Shores summer concert series takes place once a month throughout the summer on Sunday afternoons. RSCA has moved our Sounds of the Shores summer concert series this year to the afternoons, 5 – 7pm, in Marlin Park. We expect more people to be able to join us on Sundays, and the earlier time should help avoid the early evening chill that can cool things off as the sun goes down.

Silicon Valley Clean Water Project Construction in June

SVCW

A project to rehabilitate the existing biosolids drying beds at Silicon Valley Clean Water’s treatment plant at 1400 Radio Road is nearing completion and will require cement trucks traversing Redwood Shores Parkway for three days in June, all concentrated between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. for their roundtrips. The current schedule, which may change as construction conditions change, is:

  • 6/11 – Thirty-five (35) trucks
  • 6/17 – Fifty-five (55) trucks
  • 6/22 – Fifty-five (55) trucks

The project has significant environmental benefits by lining the beds and by making the drying process much more efficient. The work includes lime stabilization of the existing soil base, a new concrete floor and access ramps, internal roadway improvements, and a new decant system and pump station. The overall drying bed area is not increasing.

In the long term, the improvements will reduce the number of trucks leaving the SVCW site annually from about 600 to about 300 and significantly reduce biosolids disposal costs.

Hiller Aviation Museum’s “The Biggest Little Air Show”

If you hear the sounds of a tiny armada flying over the Shores, don’t be afraid — that’s the sound of the Hiller Aviation Museum’s “The Biggest Little Air Show”, a special event celebrating and showcasing model aircraft. The event runs from 10AM to 1PM.

Please note that, during air events at the Hiller Aviation Museum, roads into and around San Carlos Airport may be affected, and residents may hear unusual noises during the daytime events. 

The following description and video will give more information on the event, as it is described on the Hiller Aviation Museum website. 

 

Join the festivities as the Biggest Little Air Show matches a thrilling aerobatic performance by airshow pilot Vicky Benzing and her full-sized 1940 Boeing Stearman along with demonstrations of exceptional radio controlled models from the Baylands RC Flyers group.  San Carlos Airport will close to regular traffic from 10:30 am to noon to allow realistic jet- and propeller-powered model aircraft to roll down the runway and into the sky to take their part in a unique aerial extravaganza including aerobatic helicopters, computer controlled DRONES, quadrotors, high performance model rockets and more!!

(*NOTE: This message is an alert to our community that this event will take place over our airspace, and that it may be of interest to residents. RSCA is not affiliated with the Hiller Aviation Museum.)

Rowing Events on the Redwood Shores Lagoon

Our lagoon here in Redwood Shores will once again be the site for Men’s and Women’s College Rowing teams in competition this Spring. These exciting sporting events offer a rare chance on the west coast to see top-ranked rowing teams power across the water. From the pedestrian overpass on Bridge Parkway or the parking lot or park on either end of the bridge, residents can catch the races and heats as they happen, free of charge.

Key events to look forward to in April & May on the Redwood Shores lagoon include the Stanford Invitational and Pac-12 Challenge events for Men’s Rowing (the Pac-12 Women’s Challenge took place earlier this year here in Redwood Shores,) and Big Row vs. Cal for both Men’s and Women’s Rowing competition.

Eggstravaganza 2015!

It’s time for the RSCA’s annual Eggstravaganza, held every year at Marlin Park in the center of Redwood Shores. Bring all your children and a basket for goodies to the park for the big Egg Hunt, where toddlers and young kids can seek out goodies hidden in the grass and playground. Also, the Easter Bunny will be there to lead off the Egg Hunt and later to pose for pictures with the boys and girls, so be sure to take along a camera as well!

The festivities begin at 1:00 PM on Saturday, March 28th at Marlin Park here in Redwood Shores.

Be sure to arrive early so that your child can line up in the right age category — the eggs disappear quickly, and the whistle begins exactly at 1:00, so be on time! (Please limit your children to 6 eggs each so that everyone can share.)

Our local RWC Police will also be available to provide voluntary FINGERPRINTING for children of parents who might wish to have this record for identification. Because a child’s appearance can change in a short time, fingerprinting can be the best way to identify a lost child. And parents, don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny.

The Eggstravaganza is run by RSCA, and is a great place to sign up with our organization if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Please join in in making great events like this possible in Redwood Shores!
