The Sonora Round Up Parade hosted by Donn Marinovich and Sherrin Grout was held through the streets of Sonora on Saturday May 11 (the day before Mother's Day). It is part of the RCA Rodeo weekend. We began the festivities with a "build your own" breakfast burrito, digested with plenty of hot coffee, held our obligatory Drives/Navigators meeting, then motored down to JS West lumber yard to await entry into the parade route. We ran the parade and leisurely wended our way back to the Marinovich manse and enjoyed a luncheon spread before heading out and saying our goodbyes.
The Lazy River Tour V was completed on April 27 and 28, 2013. This tour was based out of the Gong Garage in West Sacramento and toured across the river levees and visit such famous venues as the Chinese town of Locke, the Sugar Mill Winery and other levee roads on the first day of the Tour. On day two, all registered entrants will experience an Urban Tour with limited DB driving but unlimited cultural indulgence as we visited the Crocker Museum of Art and another venue as we closed out our tour. Over 50 people responded and joined the tour. We had 20 DB's and GB's on this tour. We had cars from 1915 through 1936. To see more information regarding this tour, please go to ncdbs Meets, scroll down to Year 2013 and click on Spring Meet. A great time was had by all.
The NCDBS Region was in attendance at the Turlock Swap Meet on Jan. 26.
The NCDBS Region displayed 6 DB cars that were featured at the California Auto Museum during the month of February. On March 1, all were in attendance to retrieve our cars from the museum. For more information please go to the NCDBS Meets button and click on 2013 and Miscellany.
Annual Planning Meeting and Picnic March 24th at the Amador Valley Community Park (This coming Sunday!). It will be held in Pleasanton, Calif. Santa Rita Rd. at 4455 Black Ave. South East corner behind Swim Center.
Since the 2012 event was "rained out" our potluck luncheon will revert to the following suggestions: Those with Last Names beginning A through M should bring a main dish; those with Last Names of N through Z should bring a dessert, bread, salad or any other side dish. The Barhams will again provide cutlery, plates, napkins and soft drinks. Aside from the picnic we will hold our Annual Planning meeting reviewing this years Tour schedule and there will be a report on our membership status and other items of interest. Come join in the festivities!
