Planes, Porsche and Pints…Oct 10th
October 10 @ 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM
Drive your Porsche to the history-rich Castle Air Museum on Sunday morning, October 10 and experience almost 70 years of American aviation progress.
Adjacent to the Castle Airport, a former Strategic Air Command base, the museum features one of the largest airplane collections in the western United States. Member Bob Tyler has arranged a visit that includes general exhibits, a tour onboard the Douglas VC-9C used as Air Force One by several U.S. presidents and a peek at in-progress restoration projects.
We’ll start the day at Austin’s Coffee Crafters in Ripon so you can grab a coffee and snack, then drive together to the Tarmac Brewpub in Atwater for an early pint before heading to the museum. The Tarmac is on the grounds of an old filling station on the airport property 5 minutes from the museum.
The Tarmac usually has a food truck on Sunday mornings, so you’ll be able to get food if you’re hungry. Pints and food will be on your own before we head over to the museum around 11:30.
Don’t be surprised if we arrive at The Tarmac and the lot is already full of Porsches! We’ve invited our sister region in Fresno—Sequoia—to join us. We expect as many as 25 Porsches to be on hand.
The cost per ticket for museum entry is $20 per member, which includes the general exhibits and Air Force one visit.
Registration will close the Sunday before the event—October 3—so we can confirm attendance numbers with our hosts.
