2011 Fly-Ins

 
October 7-9, 2011.  Jackson, California is a fun place!!! After a week of wondering whether the weather would cooperate, (which it did), 10 airplanes, 1 helicopter and 3 cars arrived in Jackson on October 7 carrying a total of 29 DAFers. The weather was perfect for the entire weekend (except for a slight headwind going) and we had a great time exploring an area of Northern California that many of us had not visited before.

The weekend began with a happy hour by the pool on Friday night. As usual, the gang brought lots of food and beverages. We had a beautiful a view of cows roaming in the pasture and of the Amador County hills. On Saturday, we toured four towns in the area starting out in Plymouth which had some nice eating establishments. We found the corn maze at the Amador Flower Farm and managed to wind our way through it. Next was Amador City where many of us bought our picnic lunch at Andrae's. Then we headed to Sutter Creek. Sutter Creek was having its 4th Annual Musical Organ Rally, so we were lucky enough to hear some of the music coming out of those beautiful instruments. Next was a picnic in at the Kennedy Tailing Wheels Park and then off to the city of Jackson. We completed our tour at Drytown Cellars where we were treated to a private wine tasting. Many of us went our separate ways for dinner on Saturday night but, we all found something delicious to eat. Sunday brought perfect weather (and a bit of a tailwind) for the trip home.

Thank you to everyone who came on the trip to Jackson! We hope you all had a good time!

...Liz & Peter.
