    GOLF AND/OR WINE TASTING TOURS


    Anyone who plays golf please refer to post #99 of this thread to give our favorite SOB, John Dawson a call at 831-234-4326 to set up your golf game day and tee times. Don't be late, we are keeping count. He would like to play on Friday, and if enough want to, on Saturday or Sunday as well. There are 2 courses, one 9 hole next door to Flying Flags, and an expensive Championship golf course nearby. Speak with John about the details.

    Now let's start talking about 4 hour wine tasting tours. Are you ready to taste some great wines in local Santa Ynez Valley? If you are, now is the time to sign up and get ready to rock and roll. Please call me Larry Kuhn at 949 306 2360 if you want to go wine tasting either before the main rally or during. Normally it costs about $10-12 per person per wine tasting, and if our guide takes us to 4 wineries and we stop and eat lunch (either bring your own or we will order from the local tasty deli, to be picked up along the way) and also see a bunch of neat local gardens and secret hideaways, it should be a barrel of fun. Cost will be around $75 per person and lunch cost. Debbi and I will be selecting the wineries, but if you have any personal preferences, please let me know asap. We will have one tour on Wednesday,Thursday or Friday, and one or two on Saturday depending on interest level.

    Let's have a helluva great rally and enjoy ourselves to the fullest.

    I will update this rally thread as new information comes in.

    If only we could beam down to SoCal to join you. Unfortunately, as much as we enjoy the drive, it's a little too far for us to make the trip to see you all again! Looks like a lot of fun.

    Larry are looking forward to your rally in Nov. Not exactly sure what our dates are yet, but will let you know at a later date.
    We will see you in Oct. in Jackson. I'm sure it will be good because we will make it good. So every body out there get signed up before it's to late. Let's have a party.
