Basically, this is a five-day food fest.  Most of the 17 rigs arrived on Wednesday and  decorated their motorhomes with lights and outdoor blowups.  We gathered for a delicious Mexican meal at the El Torino restaurant.  On Thursday, we battled a full day of rain, but that did not keep us from heading out to pizza at the Gold Dust Pizza Place in Sutter Creek.  Friday, as usual, the men in the club made us  breakfast, and they went all out.  We had pancakes, 3 different kinds of eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns and fruit.  We were too full to move but still managed to have our meeting and elect our new officers for the next year.  We enjoyed the day visiting with our friends while our avid jigsaw puzzlers were hard at work..  In the evening we enjoyed delicious hot soup and appetizers and lots of Christmas treats.

Our annual Christmas Dinner was held on Saturday evening, catered by Thomi’s which is now called the Highway House.  Frank, the owner,  provided us with a wonderful prime rib and salmon dinner in a lovely decorated room.  We enjoyed a rowdy Christmas gift exchange in which we could either pick a gift or steal someone else’s.  Special guests for the evening  were Phillip, Sorena and Matt Hollingsworth.

Sunday our hosts provided us with pastries from Andrea’s Pastry shop in Amador City and we ended the evening back at the Highway House to indulge in Frank’s delicious onion soup with our dinner.

The Allegro Golden Bears wish all the other chapters a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  Happy Trails to all of you.
