On Saturday, the 11th, we left the Petaluma, CA Elk’s Lodge, and moved the house to the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds in Yuba City, CA for the Western Area Rally for Escapees. The rally was Sunday to Thursday, but we arrived a day early. Early registration was at 3pm. . A 4pm social hour was next. . Then we joined Marty & Peggy McCauley for dinner at the Sutter Buttes Brewery for delicious burgers, roast beef sandwich and fish and chips.
Sunday, the 12th and first day of the rally, they parked the rest of the 125 rigs. Registration was from 1 to 3pm, followed by a 4pm social hour with heavy hors d’oeuvres, so nobody needed dinner. . Then we had a parade of Escapees Chapter banners. Marty and I carried the Florida Sun Gators Chapter 57 banner. .
On Monday, the 13th, Dennis and Carol Hill came on their motorcycle to visit us and see what was happening at the WARE Rally. . After the 4pm social hour, we went out to a Red Robin for dinner with Marty and Peggy.
On the 14th, we had a 4pm social hour, a great potluck dinner, and an auction for CARE (Continuing Assistance for Retired Escapees, an adult day care) raising over $1,500. Tom Dunkel was our great auctioneer. .
On Wednesday, the 13th, Marilyn participated in a fashion shoe put on by a vendor from Pahrump, NV. . We had a catered Hawaiian Luau and Polynesian dinner that was fabulous. Kermet Apio, a comedian born in Hawaii, provided our entertainment with a comic routine and Hawaiian music. Marilyn and I, and Tom and Pat Dunkel dressed for our Hawaiian night. .
Thursday morning, the 15th, everyone comes out of their rigs to say goodbye. We then moved the house 1.3 miles to the Travelhome RV Park in Yuba City. We plan to relax here for a week.
