Hello Golden Gate Navioneers July 18, 2002

We had a good turnout for the June fly in at Woodland. It was a short Nine Iron shot from where we parked our planes to the country club restaurant. We had the dining room all to ourselves as we looked out the windows at a pond with a fountain and the golf course. The food was fine and everyone I talked to thought it was very nice.

The next fly in is on SATURDAY AUGUST 17TH AT CONCORD (CCR). Park in front of the Sheraton Hotel and some of our members will provide Transportation to the curry’s home. Please arrive before 11:30 A.M. so you and the people providing the ride will not be late. Howard will barbecue his great Tri-tips and we request members who’s names start with A through M bring a salad and those whose name starts with N through Z bring a desert. Enjoy flying your plane a little and great company.

I would like to remind everyone about our September Fly in at Grants Pass Oregon on the 13th 14th and 15th. This trip includes arrival about noon on Friday at the Josephine Co Airport (3S8) and departure on Sunday. The Riverside hotel will pick us up for transport to town (approx. five miles). Saturday the 14th we have scheduled a jet boat trip down the Rogue river through rapids and great scenery with a stop on the return for diner at a hillside restaurant overlooking the river. This is really a fun trip and costs $43.00 per person including diner and gratuity. These boats are big and seat 40 or 50 people and they go fast. They do suggest a $1.00 or $2.00 tip for the pilot. We would like to get a count on the number of people going on the boat ride by August 15 because we have to make a deposit. Please call or "E" mail me at the address or number below. The rooms at the Riverside Inn cost $89.00 a night. Everyone must make their own reservations and be sure to tell them you are with the Golden Gate Navioneers. The sooner the better, but no later than Aug 30. The number is (541) 476-6873 or 800-334-4567.
