YEE-HAW!! Sixteen Chardonnay RV wagons gathered round at Cal Expo RV Park in
Sacramento for a boot-stomping good time at our May 16-19 outing. Sporting some
mighty fine-looking cowboy wear, our guys and gals enjoyed great grub, gabbing, and
games; then we shook our booties in western line-dancing lessons. Where else but at a
Chardonnay event would you have the chance to participate in such unique games as
Clothespin Boot Drop, Farm Animal Toss, Pony Lasso, or Rattlesnake Pass? And
there was no cheatin during that game of Friendly Poker or was there?
Many thanks to our wagonmasters, the Worleys and the Matrangas, who planned
such a fun-filled weekend exploring our State Capital with excursions to a private
Street Rod Car collection, the California State Railroad Museum in old town
Sacramento, and Sutter Fort. Many folks also checked out the Winnebago models on
display at the Cal Expo RV Show.
Our Chardonnay Singers introduced the Chardonnay Travelers song. After a few
run-throughs, and some tweaking here and there, it is sounding mighty fine.
Following the getaway breakfast, we saddled up and headed out. Happy trails, until
we meet again .. for more good times next month in Bodega Bay!
