October 2023  Campout

Casa de Fruta is a destination all its own. It has wine tasting, large fruit stand, homemade candy, restaurant, children's train, carousel, and things to do for of all ages. The office staff is very courteous and accommodating.

We were able to utilize the Pacheco clubhouse without extra charge. With our colorful decorations of fall it was a very welcoming room for all to enjoy. The majority of our group arrived on Thursday early afternoon. Some went to lunch while others went to eat dinner later at the Casa de Restaurant.

On Friday, due to many activities surrounding the park it was basically a free day for all. Saturday morning, we had a wonderful continental breakfast, and our group meeting was held after. Afterwards many walked over to Casa de Fruta produce area for wine, gifts and/or ice


Saturday evening, we had our delicious potluck dinner. After dinner, fines were collected and later with all in attendance we played LRC. In both rounds it was Jill & Boyd making out with all the dough! This weekend was perfect for relaxation!

November 2023  Campout

The Club was bumped by the park from our normal weekend due to management changes. Boohoo! But that didn't stop eight rigs for our Thanksgiving campout at Gilroy Garlic USA Park. Local members drove in for the day to enjoy the company and Thanksgiving potluck on Monday!

Chef Tony cooked the turkey and ham purchased by the Club.  Members brought the wonderful side dishes and desserts.

Members visited local wineries and began their Christmas shopping early at the outlet centers.

December 2023 Campout

The Club donated money to cover an Italian Christmas dinner special cooked by Cheryl and Marilyn. Games and white elephant gift exchange made it fun for camping members and local members who drove in for the day.

March 2023 Campout

We experienced rain and partly cloudy skies at the first campout of the year. Thanks to Paso Robles RV Ranch, we had use of the clubhouse Thursday night through Saturday for a great deal.  The Club held a Meet & Greet on Wednesday afternoon for our guest Tina. Tina found the Club through our website and is a delight. She drives a 24-foot Tiffin class C motorhome with all the top technology. We hope to see her again soon.

Thursday and Friday members enjoyed local wineries, eateries and connected with club and family members.  Heavy Thursday night rain created a large pond at our doorstep. Thanks to Dave's quick and caring action; created a raised walkway with trailer blocks, so that we could exit the rig.

Members put their “crazy on” wearing unusual attire for Saturday’s breakfast to compete for a “first-in-line” potluck prize. There were hippies, cowboys/girls, members in jammies and Hawaiian shirts, a fairy who flew-in and an udder less cow! Janine won the contest as the cow.  Members were treated to Boyd’s scrambled eggs on Saturday morning, along with sausage, fruits and breads. A western style potluck and a laughter filled bingo game ended the day.

There were plenty of good stories, laughs and game playing during the campout. And of course, the weather was almost perfect Sunday morning.

April 2023 Campout

Lucky US, no rain! Most members arrived Sunday and enjoyed lunch at a local Mexican Restaurant. Buena comida! Throughout the week, members enjoyed touring Napa and Calistoga. Marc and Carol won first place at the club's wine tasting contest with their bottle of 2017 Tobin James Zinfandel. 

Since there was no club house at Napa, members set-up canopies and lights on the lawn area for our gathering activity. Our host Lou and Marilyn, enticed everyone with their breakfast burritos and sweet fruit. Lou BBQed dinner franks for potluck and members brought side dishes for the event, with a surprise ice cream from Marilyn. Earlier in the week, Brenda rallied members to play an egg basket game in celebration of Spring. Members blindly passed a basket of plastic eggs from one basket to another over their head. It took three attempts for members to not drop an egg! We don't know whether that's a good or bad record but everyone had a good laugh. 

Members socialized, snoozed and enjoyed the lazy days in the bright sun.

See you in May at Flag City!

May 2023 Campout

What a great weekend. Eleven rigs and 20 members. The club wants to give our newest club member, Tina, a big welcome to our Los Viajaros Family. 

Flag City might not be a pretty campground but there sure is a lot to do and the club house is great. Because of the not so good weather we were able to gather together for meals and games including the Warriors Basketball games. What a noisy group we can be.

The bright sunny outfits on Sat. morning were a big hit. Marilyn and Lou were the best. Marilyn really got creative. Hope everyone gets to see the pictures. 

Cheryl did a great job making sure everyone had raffle tickets for the gift basket and plant. Hazel was the lucky winner.

The Cinco de Mayo pot luck was delicious. After dinner we played left, right, center and some watched the basketball game. Thanks to everyone for a wonderful extended weekend.

July 2023 Campout

Well, Jackson Rancheria didn’t disappoint. The weather was great. The company was great and I think we had a lot of fun. Some went gambling some went wine tasting and shopping. There was a lot of eating and lots of sharing stories. 

We had a lot of fun playing games, tossing water balloons and the others had fun watching. Wendy had a craft for the ladies to do.

I think we all appreciated the freshly made muffins, banana bread and zucchini bread. I also want to thank Cheryl for taking the pizza orders and picking it up. She did a great job, and everybody got exactly what they ordered.

2024 at Jackson Rancheria scheduled, so check the club calendar for dates.
