1st gathering Speed's Diner Plymouth, CA May 14
The 2nd Saturday of each of the cruising months is a gathering at Speed's Diner in Plymouth. This is only the 2nd year but it is popular due to all roads leading to Plymouth are smooth 2 lane, well banked roads in a nice setting. Also day trips to Yosemite, Tahoe, and Coloma are popular. As an important added bonus this year thanks to Pinky-T, John's generosity, we will have a much higher level of Ts at this general hot rod event.
For those of you that have to travel a long distance to be able to say sometime in the future,"I was at the inaugural of this event back in 2010", there is a 329 site RV park 1/4 mile north of Speed's, and the Shenandoah Inn 1/5 mile south on Historic Hwy 49. For reduced hotel rates of $84.95 for a king, mention you are with the "Speed's" group. Their number is 800 542-4549. The large RV park is a Far Horizon's 49er Village, phone 209 245-6981. The surrounding Sierra Foothills is wine country with several vineyards and tours. This part of Hwy 49 is also gold country, and Plymouth is 21 miles south of Hangtown (currently called Placerville) and 12 miles north of Jackson which has IMHO the best Indian casino in California. For the more adventurists, Lake Tahoe is 81 miles away and Yosemite is 128 miles.
The above was posted last year but has the phone numbers.
