The Gold Country Drive is set for Saturday, September 27th.
Meeting Location: Starbucks in El Dorado Hills Town Center 4311 Town Center Blvd., El Dorado Hills, CA 95762
We will meet at Starbucks at 8:00, then drive scenic Latrobe Road and State Route 49 to the gold rush town of Murphys. We will make a brief rest stop in Sutter Creek. We will then head out into the Gold Country with our destination being the town of Murphys. Lunch will be at Alchemy in Murphys, and is included in the cost of the drive. There will be several items to choose from. Alcoholic beverages not included.
It is a beautiful scenic drive through twisty and not-often traveled parts of Sacramento, Amador and Calaveras counties with plenty of photo opportunities and places to get out and stretch your legs. With plenty of great driving roads in the area, we will have no shortages of twists and turns through the foothills.
The lunch stop will be in Murphys at around 11:30 am and we'll conclude the drive after lunch. This is a full day of exploring some great countryside, twisty roads, meeting new friends, and enjoying the performance of your Audis. There are plenty of places to go and see around the area as you travel home after the drive as well.
As a footnote, the Ironstone Concours d'Elegance will be going on in Murphy's from 10-4:30 at Ironstone Vineyards. It is a great event and if you want to purchase tickets or get more information go to http://www.ironstonefoundation.org/
The cost of the drive is $25 per person and registration fee includes lunch, water and swag.
