Please join our annual summer picnic with a driving tour beforehand to whet your appetite! Dave and Bonnie Bell are once again opening their home to all GGC members for a BBQ and pool party following a scenic drive. The tour will be about two hours long, and we'll make one short stop in Pescadero. The fee is $35 per person for the BBQ, and the tour is free. You can participate in the drive or the BBQ separately, or come to both!
This event is open to all members and is a great introductory event for first-time club participants. All you need is your car, a full tank of gas, and a swimsuit.
Wine Tasting Option
- Alfaro Family Vineyards, Pinot Noir Rosé, 2012 (Corralitos)
- Cooper-Garrod Estate Vineyards, Chardonnay, 2009 (Saratoga)
- Big Basin Vineyards, Lester Pinot Noir, 2009 (Boulder Creek, 92pts Steven Tanzer)
- Mount Eden Vineyards, Domaine Eden Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008 (Saratoga, 91pts Wine Advocate)
The tour begins at Cañada College (parking lot 2). You can arrive as early as 8:30 to sign the waiver, but please arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. for a 9:30 a.m. departure. We'll have a driver's meeting at 9:15.
When you arrive at the campus entrace, turn right and drive up the one-way road to the top of the hill, then turn left into parking lot 2. The tour will take place on public roads and we’ll plan to have two groups if there are enough cars: one at a more spirited pace and one at a more moderate pace.
Please note that everyone in your vehicle must sign the waiver! If you're bringing a minor under 18, you must sign an adult waiver for them.
The tour/drive will end in Los Altos Hills where a BBQ at the private residence of Dave and Bonnie Bell will be provided. Awaiting us will be ribs, grilled chicken, potato salad, mixed green salad, rolls, baked beans, beverages, and a Bell family tradition -- ice cream sundaes with all of the toppings. After stuffing yourself, you can cool off in their pool or relax in the hot tub.
