La Mesa Soap Box Derby Races – Saturday, May 19th 2012

It’s that time again!

Drew Ford and the Kiwanis Club of La Mesa are sponsoring the All American Soap Box Derby race just down at the bottom of the hill from Serramar.

The races are held at on Jr.High Drive, just in front of La Mesa Middle School. MAP

Just for a little background, the Soap Box Derby originated in Dayton, Ohio with the first race occurring in 1934. The  races have been an annual event ever since, with the only exception being a during WWII. The derby is a National event, with the World Championships held at Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio each July.

The goal of the Soap Box Derby program is to teach youngsters some of the basic skills of workmanship, the spirit of competition and the perseverance to continue a project once it has begun.

The photos below were from today’s event.



Community Owl Boxes

owl boxes


In an effort to attract nesting barn owls, the community of Serramar in La Mesa has installed owl boxes at two locations in the community. Has anyone noticed these?  After peeking around the ‘net for additional info, several sites that provide these boxes have promoted the idea as a natural, non-chemical approach to rodent/pest control, stating that a nesting pair of barn owls can consume as many as 2,000 rodents in a year. Sounds like a reasonable idea, but what I’m interested in seeing is the effect on outdoor cat populations that live in the community of 230 homes!

Does anyone have an experience with owl boxes or their effectiveness? Leave a comment..

Food Trucks come to La Mesa

Just last week I was passing by a parking lot in the 7900 block of University Ave when I noticed an A-frame sign just behind a car parked at the curb.

Food Trucks here 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.

I wanted to check it out, but didn’t have the time. That was last week…

Tonight I rolled down to the lot, hoping to get another shot a satisfying my need for some Gastro-truck goodness.

There were 4 or 5 trucks in a little chuck wagon configuration in the parking lot. After a quick peek at the choices, I settled on the Super Q BBQ rig. I tried the Pulled Pork sandwich, served with BBQ sauce and cole slaw on a soft Kaiser roll. Good stuff!

I’m not sure how long the chuck wagon will be in town, but if you want to try something different in La Mesa for a change, give its shot. I look forward to giving the Asian food a try next week.
