WOW - Women of West Valley


Flyout to Westover, Amador County (KJAQ)

We had a fabulous flyout on Saturday Feb. 22 to Westover Field in gold country near Sutter Creek.  The weather was spring like with warm temperatures in the upper 60’s, light winds and 100 mile visibility.

The Hotel Sutter (our plan B as Susan’s said they could not accommodate a large group) sent a hotel sized van to the airport promptly at 12:15 to pick us up for our 12:30 reservation.  The food was delicious and the service extra friendly and personable.  Our group of fourteen then headed out to the quaint little town to explore the treasures in the cute little shops along Main Street.  But first, Stacey, a new pilot and I were off to find our afternoon espresso.  With drinks in hand we enjoyed the afternoon sun strolling around with various members of our group. The ice cream and chocolate was also sampled and savored along the way.

Sutter Creek, just two miles from the airport is really worth a visit for lunch, dinner, or an overnight.  Many of our group members had never been there, but I am sure they will return again.  It is definitely worth the quick flight from the Bay Area.

In attendance:  Pat Gregory, Jeanne McElhatton, Marjorie Johnson, Leslie Ingham, Sue Ballew, Steve Green, Stacey Patton, Carol Munch, Bogdan and Raluca Gorbanescu, John Jacob, Jim Blum, Rich Moriarty, and Randy Sahae.
