The monthly March CCBR Meeting
will be at the Cache Creek Resort in Brooks, CA.
Brooks is NE of Lake Berryessa and West of Interstate 505.
The address is 14455 Highway 16, Brooks, CA 95606.
Cache Creek is an Indian owned casino operation, so if you have a betting bent don't miss this one. There is also golf, a spa and shopping available. Gordon Lightfoot is in concert on March 9th and The Imperial Acrobats of China perform on Sunday afternoon. Visit the web site at http://www.cachecreek.com. For directions, see the web site or use the one below.
We will have the lunch buffet in The Harvest Buffet restaurant, a bounty aplenty...
which costs $12.99.
The Resort will add a 12% gratuity because of our large group.
Please plan to pay individually.
If you have a Cache Creek player card, the buffet cost will be $9.99. If you sign up for the player card on the day we arrive, they will give you a $25.00 meal and gasoline credit. They have their own gas pumps.
We will not be in a separate room. The banquet manager, Patricia, has promised the staff will seat us in the dining room at tables they put together so we can have our meeting.
Directions from the Bay Area:
Take Interstate 80 East to Interstate 505 North. Go approximately 20 miles, exit on Highway 16/Esparto, turn left at the light. Follow Highway 16 through Esparto, Capay and on to Cache Creek Casino Resort. We will have the lunch buffet, which costs $12.99. The Resort will add a 12% gratuity because of our large group. Please plan to pay individually.
If you have not been to Cache Creek before, the choice of roads is interesting and varied. You can easily design your own routes.
A twisty, interesting route is Interstate 80 East to Suisun Valley Road, then north to Hwy 121 to Hwy 128 past the dam at the south end of Lake Berryessa and on into Winters. Then go north on Co Rd 89 to Hwy 16 and follow as above. A hint: To avoid piloting embarrassment, do not try to follow Phil James on his F800GS or Chuck Brown on his RR1000S on these roads.
Rich Alves offers another route that goes from Fairfield all the way around to Calistoga but goes by Cache Creek. Route-Fairfield to Cache Creek.pdf
Thanks to Terry Tracy for organizing this meeting.
