Drive and Wine Tour: Murphys June 23 This event is a drive from Starbucks in Escalone (starting at 10:00), around the Woodward reservoir to Hwy 120 through to Chinese Camp, Jamestown and Columbia, taking Parrots Ferry Rd. to Hwy 4 then up to Murphys and Ironstone Winery for lunch. Lunch will be at Ironstone Winery Deli and a tour of the winery (working on special parking location!). After lunch and the winery tour, stroll down Murphy’s Main street to check out other wine tasting rooms (Don Chaisson offers suggestions on his favorites in Murphy’s — check the website event information).
July 11-13: A Drive to Los Angeles for the Porsche Effect exhibition at Petersen Auto Museum, AND, a visit to the Porsche Experience Center- LA. This tour is in the development stage by Chuck and Larry: note the change in dates, moving to “Wed-Fri” instead of weekend. The idea is to drive south from the Modesto area into LA visiting some non-freeway roads along the way. Then depending on when reservations for the PEC-LA can be made (either morning or afternoon) schedule the visit to the museum to fit in the day. The drive “home” to follow on the next day. Watch this space for details as they become available.
July 22: A Drive through Livermore Valley and Tour of Blackhawk Museum. Several years ago our club did this tour with great reviews so we are revisiting the experience! Norm has arranged a private tour of the Blackhawk Auto Museum. The group will meet at the Starbucks in Manteca (2168 Daniels St, Manteca, CA 95337) at 9 AM and Norm will lead us over to Blackhawk. This drive is limited to 30 people so when you sign up please do so for the number of people in your car. Tickets for the tour will be purchased at the museum box office. ($10 seniors 65+/ military veterans; $15 adults) or if you purchase on line they are a bit cheaper (https://www.etix.com/ticket/v/13254/blackhawk-museum-) After the tour our group will head to a local eatery (TBD) for lunch!
Aug 5th: SAVE THE DATE for the “Members BBQ” at the Pierce’s home. Last year’s Member’s BBQ was a total awesome event — Chuck and Jennifer outdid themselves as host/hostess. The members had a great time also!! So, watch this space for details and you won’t want to miss the 2018 edition!
