2014 Nor Cal Vintage VW & Porsche Treffen

Join a "Gathering" of air cooled VW's and Porsches. We don't judge, we don't tell you where to park or hand out any trophies but what we do is have a good time meeting other enthusiasts and checking out some of the best VW's and Porsches in the bay area. Parking on the grass under the tree's, no baking hot asphalt at the Nor Cal Treffen! In 2013 we had about 120 cars of all types with some of the rarest of the rare in attendance. We also have some great raffle prizes given out throughout the day and free coffee and bagels in the morning. The park is huge at 8 acres and can accommodate over 300 cars if not more. The other thing that is a big plus is we have never had a waiting line to get in the park, drive right in and start enjoying your day. Swapping is allowed as long as you drive the parts into the show in your show car.

Mendocino Tour

Hosted by Bill and Gwen Jacobson on Friday and Saturday - September 26 and 27. Friday night you are on your own for dinner, Saturday will be a bar-b-q lunch (BYOB) at the Jacobson's starting about 11:30, and dinner reservations have been made at Silver's at the Wharf in Ft. Bragg for 7:30. 12 rooms have been blocked out at the Beachcomber Motel. These will be held until August 25th and then those not rented will be released. Individuals must make their own reservations (1-800-400-7873, email). Please notify Bill Jacobson (707-937-2432, email) if you are attending so we have a good count for our Saturday dinner. As usual, a contingent from the coast will drive over on Friday and meet you on Hwy. 101 for a lunch gathering at Francis Ford Coppola's Winery, just south of Geyserville on the west side of Hwy 101. (300 Via Archimedes, Geyserville, 95442) No pets allowed beyond parking lot and there is no shade in the parking lot (tiny trees).

Take the Independence Lane turn off and turn left under the freeway if you are coming from the south. The winery has a lot of his movie memorabilia including the Tucker auto from the movie of that name. This will not be a picnic area. They have the Rustic restaurant and the Pool Café. The food is good and prices are reasonable. I will not make any reservations as we will be arriving at varying times and I think it will be smoother to eat in small groups. The route from the winery to Mendocino will be Hwy 101 to Hwy 128 at Cloverdale, west to Flynn Creek road, on to Comptche and into Mendocino.

(For those of you coming over from the Sacramento area - if you are taking Hwy. 128 turn LEFT when you reach Geyserville. Go to the end of that road and rather than getting up on the freeway go straight and under the freeway where you will take another LEFT. That will take you right to the entrance of Coppola Winery. You will be on a road that parallels the freeway. If you are coming over Hwy. 20 you will have to go south, passing Ukiah, Hopland, Cloverdale and Geyserville before you come to Independence Lane.)
