California: Golden Bear Winnies

The Golden Bear Winnies had their June outing at the Jackson Rancheria RV Park in Jackson, California.  It was a little warm with temperatures in the mid to high 80’s but Jackson is such a lovely venue, so no one seemed to mind.  We had 14 rigs come in on Thursday afternoon including our western regional reps Jan and Sulaine Pedersen.  About half of the people elected to enjoy the buffet at the casino on Thursday night while others either went into the scenic gold country town of Jackson or had dinner on their own.  On Friday, four more Winnebago’s rolled in for a total of 18 for the outing!

Friday evening the group gathered in the clubhouse for happy hour while wagonmasters Rod and Fred barbequed hamburgers. Dinner was hamburgers and condiments from the wagonmasters and sides and desserts from the rest of the club. I can tell you no one left hungry. After dessert, any of the group hung out in the clubhouse for cards and rousing games of Left, Right, and Center.

Saturday was a busy day! A hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs, biscuits with sausage gravy, fruit, and juice was served by the wagonmasters in the morning. Following breakfast, the western regional reps the Pedersen’s hosted a mini WIT store in the clubhouse. This was followed by a business meeting and lunch on our own. In the afternoon a putting contest was held on the putting green which attracted a large crowd!

Prior to dinner the Pedersen’s graciously allowed the group to tour their Forza...boy is it a beauty! Dinner Saturday night was a hearty lasagna dinner prepared by the wagonmasters with ice cream for dessert. Again, many of the group stayed to play games in the clubhouse while others gathered at their own RV’s to enjoy the beautiful summer sky. 

Wagonmasters Suzanne and Fred Egger, as well as Rod Adamson and yours truly, hosted a light breakfast with yogurt, bagels, and Danish as we bid farewell to friends and this lovely park in historical California gold country.
