March Meeting
When: Thursday, March 13, 6:30 pm
Where: Shirley's House
What: 4th Annual St. Patrick's Day Food & Fun

Our March meeting will be the now-traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner at Shirley's on Thursday, March 13th.  Note that this is a week earlier than usual.  Let's try to have people arrive at 6:30 and eat around 7 or soon after.  An e-mail will come out about a week before for people to sign up for what they want to bring and RSVP to Shirley.  Plan to wear something green.

WHEN: Saturday, March 8, 7:30pm
WHERE: Casa de Gomez
BRING: Appetizer or Dessert & BYOB (Soda provided)
It's that time of year to battle it out on the table! No skills needed, just a good sense of humor and a willingness to suffer to agony of defeat. Please RSVP to Ginny.  She would also appreciate the loan of a card table and some chairs.

New Brighton Camping & Beach Breakfast
Sue Butler reminded everyone by email to go online or call on March 1.  At this point Sue reported that the sites were vanishing quickly but she had reserved sites 63 & 57 and then gave away one to the Kranaks.  The Gerlingers were able to snag site 56.  Reserve ASAP if you want to camp, or just join the campers on Sunday for the Beach Breakfast!

Roaring Camp Train Ride
O.K... it looks like we're back to August 16.  Keith wants to go when the weather is warm & the moon is out :-)  So let me know if you're interested in August 16 & I'll call to see how to make some reservations........Kathy

Del Valle - Mother’s Day
At the planning meeting we discussed camping at Del Valle in the Livermore Valley over Mother’s Day weekend May 9-11th.  Reservations for camping can be made at This is open to any and all- Las Madres and friends of LM. Wilson’s are in site 38.
For you non-camper folks, we thought maybe you would like to spend the day Saturday with us campers and have a big potluck BBQ Saturday around 5pm. The guys can cook….Shirley has got Lou cooking pancakes HA HA but we may get him to do pancake breakfast on Sunday if that is his speciality.
Let Joan know if you are camping and if you are interested in the BBQ. If we don’t get many BBQers it is subject to cancellation.
This is a good place for bikes….lots of flat paths and lots of BIG hills for the more adventuresome. Bocce Ball on the lawn is also fun. Horseshoe pits are there also.

Los Padres Golf
The dates are May 30th to June 1st at Forest Meadows.  non-golfers are welcome to go for the good times and companionship.  For more info and to RSVP, contact Lou.

We have plenty of spots and most of us will probably go from July 25th on.  The sites are available starting different days, depending on what we could get.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
We've moved our "regular" place to Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena.  There is a Starbuck across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or pastry. Our field trip this month is to The Cravery in Los Altos on Saturday, March 15.  Check out their website at:
