Vice President’s Message

The LCW Super Bowl Launch Week in Paso Robles was attended by 15 rigs and as usual the Wine Country RV Resort provided wonderful facilities to
explore the area. The four-night stay
started on Monday night with an excellent
dinner at McLintocks Saloon
that seemed to be enjoyed by all.
The next morning 25 caravanned for a
group trip to Camp Roberts 12 miles
north of Paso Robles on US Highway
101 to joined a specially arranged visit
of the historical museum and annex.
At the main gate they had to get special
security passes to enter the California
National Guard training center
since it is an active military base.
Afterwards they were met by docents
who led them through Camp Roberts
Historical Museum and its annex,
then were taken to the Soldiers Bowl
where over a million soldiers were
once entertained by the Hollywood
greats of the day during World War II
and the Korean War. The tour ended
with a special lunch prepared for
them at the camp mess hall. The
outing was planned to give everybody
plenty of time to tour the many vineyards
and attractions of the area each
afternoon. That night ended with a
pot luck dinner and an evening of Bingo
and pinochle.
On Wednesday morning a group carpooled
to Firestone Walker Brewing
Company Brewery to take a Tour and
do a little tasting, followed by lunch at
the Taproom Restaurant. Again the
afternoon was free, then followed by
a Wagon Masters meal of soup and
sandwiches. The evening ended with
pinochle again and a fierce corn hole
game in the club house.
Thursday started with the Wagon
Masters Breakfast followed by the
usual business Meeting and a Tech
Talk given by Jerry Brick. After the
Tech Talk, Larry Imoe, the new State
Vice President of the state WIT group
and his wife, Cheri, who is the 2nd
Vice President, met with the group to
have a short State of the state talk
with the members and asked for input.
They plan to visit each state
chapter of WIT this year. Once again
there was free time for individual activities
in the afternoon. The evening
activity was the Wagon Masters Dinner
followed by indoor games including
bean bag baseball and you
guessed it, more pinochle.
Friday morning had the usual Getaway
Breakfast and Cleanup. The wagon
masters for the stay were Pete &
Marianne Loeser, Mike & Karen Guidotti,
and John Beeley & Jessie Herr.
