East Bay Run To The Hills - Sunday January 22, 2023

 


Your Host For The Event:

Eddie Vergara

Run Details:

EVENT UPDATE (as of Jan. 17, 2023)

Due to the impacts from recent storms on the East Bay hill roadways, we must move our meeting location to the Foothill Square Shopping Center (10700 MacArthur Blvd., Suite 200, Oakland, CA 94605) and change our planned run route. 


Some of the roads we originally planned to drive have experienced washouts due to the excessive rainfall. Our host, Eddie, has pre-run the new route to verify it is in good condition for our run on Sunday, January 22. Please read the updated information below.


For the first run of 2023, we will take on the East Bay backroads! This run will be made up of twisty roads from start to finish. Due to the weather and continued runoff, the roads will be wet and may have some runoff debris, so we will drive at a leisurely speed for safety based on conditions. 

Please have a radio tuned to Channel 7-21 CTCSS to hear alerts during the run! The Club has loaners if you don’t have your own. Leaders will use the club radios to alert drivers to hazards, so please have your radios or borrow the club radios to listen in.

We will meet-up at the Foothill Square Shopping Center (10700 MacArthur Blvd. Ste. 200, Oakland, CA 94605) parking lot at 9:15am. We will conduct our driver’s meeting and radio checks at this time. Please use the restroom well before our driver's briefing at 9:45 AM! We will split into two groups with the first group heading out promptly at 10:00 am for our first leg of the drive, and the second group heading out at 10:15 AM to provide some separation between the groups. 

The first leg of the run is a 45-minute drive that starts by driving east through some residential streets to connect to Skyline Blvd. Once on Skyline Blvd., we will drive northwest for 10 miles and turn right onto Grizzly Peak Blvd.

We will drive on Grizzly Peak Blvd. for about 15 minutes until we reach Golf Course Road which will lead us to a picnic rest area in Tilden Regional Park. We will take our first rest stop here in the park.



Our second leg of the run will be another 45-minute drive northeast to Martinez. Heading east from Tilden Park via Wildcat Canyon Road, we will turn left onto San Pablo Dam Road, drive along San Pablo Reservoir, and reach the east side of the town of El Sobrante. We will then head east via Castro Ranch Road and Alhambra Valley Road as we enter into the Martinez/Concord area. Alhambra Valley Road will curve north past the John Muir National Historic Site and through the town of Martinez. 

We will finish the drive with both groups meeting at the Martinez Marina parking lot (7 N. Court Street, Martinez, CA 94553) where the waters of Suisun Bay meet up with the Carquinez Strait. Following group photos and the driver debriefing here at the marina, please get together with some of your Club friends and enjoy lunch on your own at one of the many restaurants in the downtown Martinez area. 

Meet Up Time/Departure Time:

9:15am/ 10:00am (Group 1) & 10:15am (Group 2)

Meet Up Location:

Foothill Square Shopping Center

10700 MacArthur Boulevard STE 200

Oakland, CA 94605

Additional Run Details:


*Please bring your radio*, fully charged, turned on, and tuned to Channel 7, Subchannel 21 before you arrive at the start. If you don’t have a radio, ask for a loaner at the driver’s meeting. For radio recommendations, please see https://www.facebook.com/legacy/notes/728353274556164/.

Be sure to turn the “VOX” voice-activated setting OFF, or we will hear the wind from your AC, your conversations, and any noise in your car broadcasting to everyone.

Make a pit stop before the meetup. We will be driving for a straight hour through twisty hills, so plan ahead.

We'd classify this run as "advanced". There *will* be twisty roads along most of the route (the views of the Bay from Skyline and Grizzly Peak make it worth it). The lead car will be keeping a safe pace throughout.

Bay Area backroads can be rough. There are no major hazards that would take out a car, but some of the hill sections are definitely bumpier than others.

Expect parked cars, pedestrians, and bike traffic. The area on Skyline near the Chabot Science Center has a few popular parks with hikers crossing the road, so we'll be taking it easy through here.

We’ll be driving through some residential areas around Skyline Boulevard and Grizzly Peak Boulevard are residential-ish, so we will be taking it slow through these areas.

Let’s finish the drive as a group at the Martinez Marina Parking lot. This is a good point for club pictures and making plans for lunch.

Recap - Apple Hill Event - Sunday November 6th

 



Your Host For This Event:

Rick Sanchez and daughter Vanessa

The Apple Hill run started in Manteca. 2022 Vice President, Rick Sanchez led the run with his daughter Vanessa. Sixteen cars joined the run. At the driver’s meeting Jean Nugent was recognized as the newest member to participate in the day’s run. Next year’s Social Media Director, Duane Caldwell, was on hand to take wonderful photos of our cars in the parking lot of Joshua Cowell Elementary. Other 2022 officers and directors present were Michelle Lewis, Pat Lewis and Paige Lane. Paige volunteered to be caboose for the run. The most excited participant on the run was Tony Suarez’s daughter. She got recognized as the youngest person at this event. Jonathan Scott brought his grandmother. She too was excited for the run. She told us that she used to drive muscle cars in her youth.





The group was fortunate that the predicted rain storm did not materialize. As the group traveled from Manteca to Placerville, there were no issues and no one got lost. There were various stops along the way to allow everyone to regroup. The drive took the group through the farmlands of San Joaquin, Amador and El Dorado counties. Sondra Westphal joined the group in Plymouth and Stephen Breitenstein joined us in Placerville. Foggy weather met us in Placerville.

At a regroup stop in Placerville, a fellow MINI owner that was shopping at the local Save Mart was impressed with our group. She asked if she could join us on the remaining drive to High Hill Ranch. As we drove along Carson Road, Mary Wolgamot, who grew up in the Placerville area, gave us a verbal history on the local apple farms on our radios.

Upon arrival to High Hill Ranch, the parking personnel were waiting for our arrival and directed us to our reserved parking area. The supervisor of the parking personnel informed Rick later that day that many visitors were impressed with our group’s arrival and that it was the highlight of their visit to High Hill Ranch. The fog turned into heavy drizzle at High Hill Ranch. Even with the wet climate, there were a lot of people visiting the ranch buying everything apple related.





The lines to buy coffee, donuts and apple fritters were long, but worth the wait. Some of us found warmth and comfort at the Pie House Restaurant. Lots of options for hot meals were available. There were many vendors available selling their wares. Some members took advantage of the available vendor’s offerings. All in all, it was a pleasant run.

Hopefully next time, we will have Mr. Sunshine accompany us for the day.

Recap - Over the Mountains and thru the Woods Pumpkin Run - Saturday October 29th



                                                                                                                                                                      
Pumpkin Run 2022

Your Host: Tasha Hudick

What a beautiful fall day, as 27 Minis made their way from the Peninsula over the mountains, through rolling farmland and coastal views, to Bob’s Vegetable Stand and Pumpkin Patch just south of Half Moon Bay.





We started out bright and early in Redwood City, enjoying the crisp air, a nice spread of Minis, a smattering of new members and lots of good conversations all around. We couldn’t ask for better weather, barely a cloud in the sky as we headed up Highway 84 to the iconic Alice’s Restaurant. Some Mini drivers really wanted to stop and take in all the cars and motorcycles that always pack to parking lots, but we had twistier roads to take on and headed up Skyline to take in the Bay and Coastal views.



Cue the twisty and gravelly road as we made our way down a narrow Alpine Road. We weren’t the only car club tackling the turns. A band of Porsches met our Minis as we descended. Our group 2 led by Gordon recounted his run-in.

“After seeing the lead Porsche stopped at a stop sign, I chose to lead our Mini posse through and force the cross traffic to look in awe and splendor at our pack. For once the silver and bronze Porsches had to wait…and wait… and wait. As we descended down Alpine, a second group led by a red 911 took up the center of the road and we and our Minis were forced to the edge of the road. There were quite a few Spyders in that group. Next time, I’ll bring my raid to stamp them out.”



Most of our route was made up of the old Stage road that ran between Pescadero and northern coastal towns. Bucolic farmland created breathtaking views as we navigated our way through the hairpins, twists and turns of an historic route.

We arrived at the pumpkin farm close to lunch, we were all able to park close, have a nice chat with friends and even get a few pumpkins in our boot for Halloween!







Thanks to Duane, Larry and Gordon for helping out and providing leadership and support!

Recap - Weekend Dunsmuir Railroad Park October 21-23, 2022

 



Your Hosts For This Event:

Michael & Christine Toibin

Simon & Nikki Tildesley

MINIS came from all over the Bay Area to descend on the Dunsmuir Railroad Park Resort on Friday afternoon October 21st. In addition the Toibin's drove down from their home in Central Oregon for this soon to be epic event.

Potluck Friday night was a rousing success like it was in 2021. And this year no snow but a little bit of rain. But thanks to the Tildesleys, the Bennetts, the Toibins and the Lewis' we had plenty of shelter and warmth from the tents and fire pits they brought. 

As you can see from the pictures below food was a plenty as everyone who attended brought some incredible food as well as plenty of adult beverages. A perfect feast and a great time to catch up with old friends and meet many new members attending a run for the first time. A great time was had by all in typical NORCAL MINI fashion!! 




Saturday morning events didn't start too early after a late Friday night. Because of early rain we gathered at our tents for cover for our drivers meeting and our drawing for some great prizes. We then headed out for the day. The first stop was in the town of McCloud for lunch and spend some time wandering about taking pictures in this very interesting little town. We met up an hour later and after a very brief driver update meeting headed out for our next stop which was the Middle Falls along highway 89. 






From there the group headed out to McArthur-Burney Memorial State Park and Burney Falls. As parking was at a premium everyone was on their own for awhile to check out the falls, the Lake Britton and do some light hiking. 



After a full day everyone headed back to the railroad park for a bit of relaxation, a few snacks and of course a cocktail before we headed to the park restaurant for our group dinner.

We gathered at the restaurant for a wonderful meal and plenty of time to relive the events of the day with our old friends and so many new ones. Food was terrific as always! Afterwards many of us headed back to the tent area for a late night drink and continued great conversation.


And we cannot forget our FUR BABIES who had a great time as well!!





And Sunday came and everyone headed home already planning for Dunsmuir 2023. And for those interested in coming back next year, book your caboose now as many have already done so. The dates are Friday October 13th thru Sunday October 15th.


And check out the two links below for lots more pictures.

Finally, thank you so much to everyone who brought such great food to our Friday night Potluck. And of course the adult beverages as well. 

And a very special thanks again to the Bennetts, the Tildesley's and the Lewis' for all the help making this an amazing weekend.

Over the Mountains and thru the Woods Pumpkin Run - Saturday October 29th

 


Your Host For This Event: 

Tasha Hudick

Join your fellow MINI enthusiasts for a spirited drive through the mountains and woods from Woodside to the coast. We'll drive past historic cemeteries, world famous driving roads, towering redwoods and breathtaking coastal cliffs ending with a visit to a sprawling pumpkin and vegetable stand south of Half Moon Bay. Lots of twisty roads and places to get into high gear.

We will meet in the Target parking lot in Redwood City and head up Highway 84 past the Historic Union Cemetery, the oldest burial site in San Mateo County (https://historicunioncemetery.org/). 



Passing through the historic town of Woodside and up to Alice's Restaurant at the corner of Highway 35 and 84.

Heading south on Skyline Blvd, we'll make a quick stop at Windy Hill Anniversary Picnic grounds for pictures, depending on how full the lot is, and a bathroom break (note these are park bathrooms, read pit stop!).

Get ready for the twisties as we head down Alpine Road to Pescadero Creek Road where towering redwoods and Memorial Park will envelop us in a lush temperate rainforest.

Redwoods give way to rolling farmlands once we reach Pescadero with a quick pass through the historic downtown and past Mount Hope Cemetery on Stage Road and on to San Gregorio, another stagecoach stop along our route.



A slight jaunt along Highway 1 and the beautiful coastal cliffs will bring us to Bob's Pumpkin Farm and Vegetable Stand, for that last minute pumpkin. Don't need any more pumpkins, Bob's has a cute little farm and fresh coastal veggies to fill your boot with!

Run: Run to McArthur Burney State Park
Meet Up Time/Departure Time

Meet at the entrance area to the Railroad Park

Route:
Detail Of Run:
The park is within the Cascade Range and Modoc Plateau natural region, with forest and five miles of streamside and lake shoreline, including a portion of Lake Britton. Keep your eyes out as you drive around Lake Britton for a train trestle that was filmed in the movie “Stand by Me”.

The park’s centerpiece is the 129-foot Burney Falls, which is not the highest or largest waterfall in the state, but possibly the most beautiful. Additional water comes from springs, joining to create a mist-filled basin. Burney Creek originates from the park’s underground springs and flows to Lake Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls.

The park’s landscape was created by volcanic activity as well as erosion from weather and streams. This volcanic region is surrounded by mountain peaks and is covered by black volcanic rock, or basalt. Created over a million years ago, the layered, porous basalt retains rainwater and snow melt, which forms a large underground reservoir.

Within the park, the water emerges as springs at and above Burney Falls, where it flows at 100 million gallons every day.

Park Fee: $10.00 CASH ONLY per vehicle 

Pets are not recommended as they cannot walk the trails.

Lunch
We will be stopping in McCloud which is about a half an hour out. Lots of great places to have lunch.
One hour then back on the road.

Dinner
We will have a group dinner in the dining car restaurant in the park on Saturday night. It's important as part of your RSVP to let us know if you're interested in this option. Some may choose to do dinner on their own or get take out from the dining car.
