2014 Weekly Challenge #30: BAM (Back and Arms)

 It is tank top season, and nothing makes a tank top look better than toned arms and a strong back. This week's challenge will help you get both in just 5 minutes a day!

Here's the workout:
Single leg rows (20 each side)
Rip curls (to center with knuckles facing, to front and to sides, 20 each)
Hammer curls (20)
Single leg kickbacks (20 each side)
Dips (20)

 Your challenge: Grab your hand weights and do the BAM series every day this week. Your back and arms (and tank top!) will love you for it!

Mangia this weekend at Festa Italiana!

Want to indulge with a capital "I" this weekend? What better way than at the Sacramento Italian Cultural Society's Festa Italiana! Now in its 28th year, the two day festival celebrates the Capital City's Italian community with music, dancing, shopping, and of course, the country's deliciously rich cuisine. (Why not stuff your face with a cannoli... or two...or five.)

Not Italian? Not to worry. You don't have to be to enjoy the festival's fanfare. There is a little something for everyone. For only $12 (or free if you're under age 15), attendees can enjoy a lively Italian Marketplace, children's games and rides, bocce ball, an Italian cars and motorcycles show, and a number of musical and dance performances, including a special appearance by Dean Martin impersonator, Matt Helm.

Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Networking short game at SACC's 20th Annual Bamboo Classic

Imagine replacing the muted beige walls and lacquered wood trimming with the golden hills of the Northern California Valley; the blare of ringing cellphones silenced by the soft footsteps of wild turkeys crossing lush green grass; good food and good weather being the apex of a sales pitch rather than the staccato hum of a PowerPoint slide.

Imagine a boardroom presentation with Mother Nature as your Closer.

Nearly 20 Northern California businesses made the above a reality.   

The Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (SACC) hosted its 20th Annual Bamboo Classic Golf Tournament July 21 at Catta Vedera Country Club in Lincoln, Calif.

Over 140 golfers, representing a wide-array of the Sacramento region’s business community, participated in SACC’s signature fundraising event. Northern California small businesses capitalized on a unique opportunity to network with tournament participants through tee box sponsorship.
