Default All American - Rancho Cordova, CA

We are going out to Rancho Cordova to judge this contest. Flying from Georgia to San Francisco (more flight options than ATL -> Sacramento) and driving across to Lake Tahoe for a little R&R then to Rancho Cordova for the contest. I doubt we'll know anyone there. Are there any Brethern planning to attend this one?

We'll be there. It's in our neighborhood; if you have any questions about the area let us know.

It will probably be HOT in Sacramento (100 degrees is not unusual that time of year) cool in SF (65 degrees for the high is not unusual), and there's no telling in Lake Tahoe - could be snow...could be 100

Stop buy and say "hey".

Safe travels!

We bought an air conditioner for our trailer as a precaution.

Can one walk around Saturday night without being a competitor?

Usually that is cool, but since this is a first year event I am not exactly sure of the logistics.

Just walk in and act like you know what you are doing...like picking up the trash...

Everyone should leave you alone then. Stop by Huminie's Hogalicous BBQ!

Thanks for your replies everyone. We're looking forward to visiting with Bretheren while we're out there. 100 degrees, you say? We haven't quite hit that in Georgia yet but we're sneaking up on it. Yours is a dry heat, right . We plan to raft the American River on Friday. Our original plans were to go down the Middle Fork but we had a call that the water is too high to run that section so we're going down the South Fork. Are there other "must see/do" things in the Sacramento area that we might not be aware of? Our preferences run to science/natural history/aeronautical museums, local history, wineries and breweries.

Since turn in is on Sunday I'm assuming everyone gets set up and begins prepping on Saturday? If so, we'll plan on making a pass through to meet folks then.

See you in a few weeks.
Julie

According to one spot on this website there is a carnival July 1-4, but I only see it in one spot so I'm not sure about it. Worst case just act like you belong like Huminie said!

If you are up running the river you could drive another hour or two and get to Sierra Nevada Brewing.

http://www.sierranevada.com/directions.html

There are also more wineries than you can count...

If you are up on the river Coloma where Sutter found gold is not far away.

umm...and ya it is a dry heat. As long as you are in the shade the heat is not terrible.
