The Antique Group starts its program in January with a meeting - the only one - at the house of the current Chair to discuss and set an agenda for the year.
There are ten outings, and usually, because the group is small, everyone gets a chance to select a destination for antique shopping/browsing, and a restaurant for lunch.
Destinations have been as far as San Francisco and as close as Sebastopol with every conceivable place in between, but there are always more discoveries to be made. Carpooling is usually the mode of transportation.
The daytime bridge group meets at 12:30 pm on the first and third Fridays each month. The group divides and meets in Member's homes. The group is for women, but occasionally gentlemen substitute. Players bring brown bag lunches. Snacks and desserts are served by the hostess.
Anyone who wishes to play is welcome to call the Chair to place their name on the substitute list and/or the list to join. Players are called to substitute or join in the order their names are on the list. Let us hear from you.
The evening bridge group meets the second and third Tuesday evening of each month at 7:00 pm. The game is a friendly evening of bridge with two to five tables.
A list of players in maintained by the Chair who calls players several days in advance to make the table arrangements for the coming Thursday evening. Coffee and snacks are always available.
The primary purpose of the Gadabouts Group is to have fun. Each month a different restaurant in the area is selected, and the group meets there for lunch and a pleasant time. If you want to find all the best restaurants in the area, this is the group for you. Call the Chair to join one luncheon, or to becoime a permanent member.
18 Hole Golf
This group meets every Friday at the Bennett Valley course, weather permitting, at 9 am. One member is responsible for calling in the previous Friday getting our tee times each week. Several women golfers are members and about 10 men, and everyone is welcome. We develop a handicap for everyone, and have a 50 cent contribution to the pot for first and second place to split. Interested players should call the Chair to join the group.
The Needlework Group meets on the third Wednesday of each month in different member's homes. The time is 10 am to 12 noon. Each person brings their own sewing project which varies from fancy work to mending. Coffee or tea with cookies is available to enjoy while needleworking.
The fitness group meets twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am. This program is now an official "no credit" course at SRJC, and is conducted by one of their fitness instructors. So it really is a great and professional class in fitness. The exercises consist of light aerobics, mat routines, muscle strengtheners, a little Yoga, some Thai-Chi. Whatever helps to keep flexible. Each person participates on her/his comfort level. We have a good time together. Bring a mat or rug and join the group. During June, July, and August aquatic exercises are usually offered. Visitors are welcome, but call the Chair to visit or to join.
The R.V. Group has been a little silent, but the first new trip went off recently with a trip to The Gold Country. They camped at Plymouth and visited mines in Plymouth, Jackson, and Sutter Creek.
Another trip is in the planning to go to Fort Bragg and take the Skunk train ride. Call the R.V. Chair if you are interesting in participating.
