About the event
After all the work at the AGM, we’ll be ready for a fun weekend out of town. Join us on our first ever drive to the center of the San Joaquin Valley. We’ll leave the bay area early Friday morning, probably meeting up in Gilroy. From there we’ll take 152 across to highway 5. Travel south on highway 5 to Avenue 7/Nees Road. You’ll then travel through crops in full bloom all the way to highway 99. A relaxing way to get there. We’ll be staying at the Best Western in Clovis which is very convenient to all the events, lots of shopping, antique shops and restaurants, all just a short walk away. Once you're settled in we will meet for lunch. Then a 45-minute drive up Highway 168 to Dunlap which is at 4000 ft, close to Sequoia National Park. We will be taking a tour of the CAT HAVEN. You’ll see 14 wild cat species (9 JAGUARS) and learn a lot about our favorite CAT!
Then back to the hotel to relax until we go to dinner at the ELBOW ROOM. Saturday will begin with full breakfast at the hotel. We will then meet up in Clovis with the Valley British Auto Club (VBAC) and join them for a couple hour drive through the foothills, expect that wildflowers will be in full bloom. Lunch will be back in Clovis at Bobby Salazar’s with the VBAC. That afternoon will be free for you to explore on your own. Suggestions will be coming. Dinner information will come soon.
Sunday morning you’ll enjoy your free full breakfast and meet up in Clovis with the VBAC again and set up for the car show and antique street fair. This car show is not a concours, it’s better described a car show and street party. There will be awards with unusual categories like BEST oil leak. Awards will be given out between 1:30-2:00 and the Car show ends at 3:00. At this time, you ‘ll be saying goodbye to all your NEW friends and traveling back to the Bay Area. So sign up ASAP, rooms will go fast and so will spots in the car show.
