It was a dark and stormy night…
SHW extends gratitude to Randall Grahm, the Club’s guest speaker at last Wednesday’s meeting. Randall endured a rough time on the road to get to us including a 3 1/2 hour delay in Davis due to wind-blown obstacles in the road. He arrived just as we were finishing up Club announcements, quickly gulped down his dinner, and about 20 minutes into his presentation, the lights went out. A few minutes later, we were asked to evacuate the premises – transformer blew out- it was unknown when the power would be restored.
There were about 80 of us there. Thank you for your safe and orderly exit. Appreciation is extended to Club members who helped gather, clean, and stuff Club materials and equipment into the storage cubbies.
We didn’t get a chance to finish the evening’s business.
Earlier in the week, we announced that Randall’s “Been Doon So Long” book would be a raffle item at the meeting. Randall forgot to bring the book.
If you didn’t get a chance to give your membership form to Treasurer Jacque Brown, she’ll accept them at the mailing address on the bottom of the membership form.
Wine and Grape Symposium guest passes are still available for the Exhibits Only/Trade Show of the symposium. The passes are valid for next Wednesday-Thursday, January 25-26 and are $10 each. Contact Gin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916 217-0294.
If you acquired symposium guest passes and still need to make payment, please do so by sending to Treasurer Jacque Brown, 1616 Berkeley Way, Sacramento 95819.
Finally, some of us still want to hear what Randall was planning to share with us. Are you game for a field trip to his Bonny Doon Vineyard winery in Davenport / Santa Cruz? Sometime this spring? Fred Millar has volunteered to coordinate this effort. Let him know of your interest at email@example.com.
