March 2023 Rally held in Chico, CA at Almond Tree RV Park
A few members of the Escapees Gold Nugget Chapter 24 arrived on a rainy Sunday. Monday the rest of our group joined us for a total of 20 rigs. Folks were welcomed with a Monday evening dinner of hot dogs, potato salad and baked beans. Oh, and don’t forget all the oranges we had for dessert! Thanks, Phil & Charlie. Evening games completed our Monday.
Tuesday morning we had fresh donuts from a local bakery with nice hot coffee. Then we were on our way to our first outing of the week. We arrived at local action news station KHSL a bit before noon. We were greeted by Aaron and introduced to the folks that work behind the scenes at the station. Action News at Noon was getting ready for their broadcast. We watched the “live” broadcast right on set. Very interesting. Lots of preparation and good timing to doing a news broadcast. We had afternoon games. Lots of rain and thunder joined us.
Wednesday was a kick back and relax day. Muffins, donuts & coffee in the morning. A General Meeting was held. We played “Bean Bag Baseball” in the afternoon. The gals tried their hardest but the guys prevailed in the end. Just wait until next time. : ) Everyone pitched in for afternoon munchies and for most of us that was our dinner.
Thursday morning was a repeat of Wednesday. Our tour for today was in the early morning at the Chico Air Museum. Upon arrival we were greeted by a volunteer who gave us a guided tour of the museum. Lots of history and aircraft to see and learn about. Our evening was dinner at the Rice Bowl restaurant. Staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. We played games again in the evening.
Friday, homeward bound we are! Our April outing will be held at Black Oak Casino RV Park in Tuolumne.
