Chamber Cash Mob

Call For Mobsters!

We need at least 20 shoppers to sign up for us to have a successful Cash Mob season. To date, 5 mobsters have signed up and we need at least 15 more!

Cash Mob for Spring 2017 has been canceled. We did not have enough Mobsters signup. Thank you.

Why We Cash Mob

Many of our local businesses stay open to serve locals and guests during the off season. This can be hard on these businesses just to pay overhead. We like to show as much appreciation to these businesses as possible. Cash Mob months are April, May, October and November.

The Chamber signs up as “Mob-ees”, all of the members who are open during the Cash Mob months, ie restaurants, stores, artist studios, etc.

How We Cash Mob

A Cash Mob is called once every 10 days to 2 weeks during the Cash Mob months. The Chamber asks at least 20 people sign up to be “Mobsters”. Mobsters agree they will go to the business assigned for that Cash Mob and spend at least $25.00 to show appreciation. Therefore if at least 20 mobsters arrive on the day of the Mob, that local business will receive a bump in revenue! (Mobsters are alerted to the Cash Mob date and location in advance by text message, email or phone call)

Not signed up because you are traveling? Not to worry. you can still be a Mobster. It is simple. If you are not in town during one or more of the Cash Mobs, simply call the business we are Mobing, give them your credit card number and ask for a gift certificate.

Notice To All Of Our Summer Visitors

We’d like to clarify the highway construction on Highway 434 between Black Lake and Mora, from the point of view of someone who travels that road nearly every other day.

The DOT workers have done a wonderful job, keeping the road open for traffic. The current construction phase near Mile Marker 19 is only two and one-half miles long and has a traffic light that is 4 minutes long, allowing traffic to move through at a steady pace.

The flashing highway signs restrict any traffic over 10 feet wide. That is the same restriction that has a permanent sign and has been in effect for several years. From our front deck, we have observed a few semi-trucks with flatbed trailers coming through, motor homes, other large vehicles, and many cars.

Sierra Bonita Cabins and RV Park, at Mile Marker 17.5, is easily accessible for motor homes from the south through Las Vegas and Mora. Most of our RV guests come to us from the south.

We look forward to a wonderful summer and great fishing! You are invited.
