27th/28th
Someone's going to have to pick one. Not possible to accomodate everyone. The more time available to adjust scheudles the greater the likely attendance.

the 13-15 is a 3 day weekend. so that is something to think about. i don't realy car what weekend we go.

If we need to toss out a date i'd say the 20th just because people might have plans on the 13-15.

27th works for me too.

Nice to see that another get together is in process. I remember the one down by Crytal Springs reservoir.

In Jan I will be in S. America so I can't make it.

20th sounds the best to me, it's not a holiday weekend and it's sooner than the 27th...

Buzz, what color is your SDL? If it is a cabernet red, were you in Pismo this past june?

We would love to see you again, it would be a long drive, but with the right weather another nice weekend adventure.

Thanks in advance for a great time,
Hey Buzz,

If you are coming again, and want a convenient place next to the Frank Lloyd Civic Center, to stay, a suggestion I'd have would be to stay at the Friendship Villa Inn (used to be called the Villa Rafael) at 1600 Lincoln Avenue, it's just a mile or so away from the Civic Center and across the freeway from it, and the tariff is REAL resonable, last I heard about about $60 or so, it was family owned, and a Basque restaurant nearby, and the guest's cars are parked off the street where no one cdan see them, and you would be safe. My folks ALWAYS stayed there when they came down from the Sierra Foothills to see me in SF or my brother in San Anselmo...

See: www.tripadvisor.com Hotel_Review

(415) 456-4975 is the number I have for them, but it's an old number and should still be good

click "Villa Rafael" or "Friendship Villa Inn" I think they are one and the same

Another choice very close to the Marin Civic Center is the Embassy Suites, but it's a lot bigger and probably more expensive, don't know that much about it.

Or if you believe that "Life is like a voyage on the Titanic, so you might as well travel first class" you could stay in Sausalito, (other side of the Golden Gate bridge) at the Alta Mira or some other posh place there, some real good places to eat there.

If you get in a jam, RAB Motors on Francisco Blvd in San Rafael (you can see it from the freeway) see www.rabmotors.com for more, if you need them.
I haven't used them for anything for 2 years, and like any MB dealer they aren't cheap by any means, but they are generally (not perfect by any means) but pretty good...

It would be good to have you up in Nor Cal again, which one will you take this time?

Jim
