Sunday - September 27 2009 Miniature Golf Park Event Exhibition Back in 2007 our club presented a trophy to Jim Guignard for winning 1st place at miniature golf. This time the club did not award a trophy but the winner did receive from each player $1.00 which made it better by winning money and not a trophy. Actually it was Dale Brooks idea to give the winner money to pay for his luncheon that the club goes to after each cruise. The winner with the highest score meaning the lowest score was Manuel Carrillo. Second place was won by Alex. Alex did not win anything but was happy and very surprised he won second place. The score keeper was Robin Brewer and she did a great job at keeping score for all the players. At Scandia located on I-15 between 10 & 60 freeways the price of admission goes by height. One price - all day unlimited use throughout the day. If a person is at 54 inches in height they pay one price and below 54” they pay about $2.50 less. Scandia Amusement Park has two beautifully landscaped Scandinavian themed miniature golf course and over 12,000 flowers planted annually amongst many rushing rivers, trickling streams, and cascading waterfalls! Plenty of club cruisin’ members decided to go on this cruise and afterwards cruised over to Spires located on Foothill & Haven in Rancho Cucamonga for a luncheon. The restaurant staff knows our club because we do go there often so they immediately set us up and gave us as usual great service. First time cruisin’ with our club was the newest club member at the time Gloria Aguirre and her grandson. To welcome Gloria Aguirre, Tommy Dorsey insisted on paying for her luncheon. Alex decided to treat the group on whatever they wanted for desert. It was a great cruise and a nice day for all that went on this cruise. This cruise was an afternoon cruise, we met a Denny’s at 1:30 pm and left at 1:45 pm taking the 10 and then going south on the 15. Continue

Continue The travel time was short and the people on the freeway on this nice sunny day gave us a happy greeting as we went by them. It is always a good feeling when we get a wave. * * * Special Meeting 2010 Cruises On Sunday October 18, 2009 the membership was called to come together and discuss the upcoming cruises for next year. The response was outstanding and Spires’ restaurant in Rancho Cucamonga was the place we met because they always provide our club with the back room where the membership can sit and enjoy a meal, mingle, share stories, take pictures and just plain talk. Upon arriving to the restaurant 7 tables were set up in a u-shape form, but with-in the first half hour we had to rearrange the set-up several times because we needed more tables as more and more of the membership dropped in. Poor J. J. it didn’t matter where he sat he was always the one who had to move from his chair to fit more tables for others coming in. Glad he was in good spirits. We enjoyed a good meal, some ordered breakfast and others ordered lunch/dinner. This unscheduled lunch-meeting went from noon to about 5:30 pm when we said our good-bys ‘til next time, with a 3-day cruise to Laughlin, Nevada to show our club spirit. When the transition was made from RCPTCC to RCPTCCC (cruisin’ club) it was made clear to the membership that we would have no meetings other than coming together after a cruise to enjoy a nice luncheon. The clubs’ turnout of about 22 cruisin’ club members was amazing with lots of club input in regards to the upcoming 2010 cruises. There will be at least three 3-day cruises, one being the Grand Canyon Cruise in April of 2010 and also another 3-day week end in Laughlin, Nevada. (Alex)
Saturday October 10 2009 33rd Annual Walnut Festival Parade For this cruise we met at Denny’s at 7:30 am and left at 8 am. Not having been to this parade before we use the directions on the map the City of Walnut sent us and it was okay because we arrived there in no time at all. We traveled the on the 10 freeway west, 57 south, and exit at Brea Canyon Road. For the last several years the City of Walnut has invited our club to participate in the Walnut Festival Parade and each time we were committed to a scheduled event so we were not able to attend. This time however they rolled out the red carpet and welcomed our cruisin’ club with open arms. The person I contact for this cruise is Christine McBurney from the City of Walnut. She directed our group and made this cruise an excellent choice for the club to be part of. We will definitely be part of this again in 2010. Several of the club members have never been in a parade so this was something new to them and expressed anxious moments throughout the morning. One thing for sure about a parade, we have to get their early, find the staging area for our club, register the club, then decorate and clean up the PT Cruisers making them look parade ready. The citizens of this fine city came out and joyfully waved and clapped at all of the entries on the parade route. On Monday October 12th I received a phone call from the Walnut Festival Parade Coordinator and was informed that Rancho Cucamonga PT Cruiser Cruisin' Club won the Trophy in the parade. I called everyone that went to the parade and told about this good news. All were very impressed as was I very much. After the event we did not stay for the festivities at Suzzane Park but instead we cruised up to Foothill & Haven in Rancho Cucamonga for a fantastic lunch and a group get together. Stayed at Sprires for a couple of hours and then called it a day getting ready for the next cruise on Sunday the next day.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA PT CRUISER CRUISIN' CLUB WE HAVE MEMBERS FROM THE INLAND EMPIRE, HIGH DESERT, PALM SPRINGS, SAN DIEGO, RIVERSIDE, LOS ANGELES & SAN BERNARDINO COUNTIES, AND YAKIMA, WA. LOG ONTO CLUB WEBSITE WWW.RCPTCRUISERCLUB.COM FOR MORE INFOMATION Sunday October 11 2009 - Calico Ghost Town This cruise was the next day after the Walnut Festival Parade so we had to go home after the parade and spruce up our PT Cruisers to cruise to Calico Ghost Town which is somewhat past Barstow going north. We arrived at the meeting place around 10 am and left shortly thereafter. Jim Anderson was there but informed us he had to work that morning so he was unable to go but gave us a send off on this cruise. He brought along his dog Klondike, named after an ice cream and which is the theme for Paula Anderson PT Cruiser. After all who were going on this cruise arrived, we left heading north on the I-15 freeway. Approaching the on ramp at Bear Valley Road we communicated via two-way radios with Ray & Claudia Oviatt who were waiting to join us. Easily they came onto the freeway and joined our group sliding in front of Tommy Dorsey who is always the tail end cruiser on all our cruises. I had never been to Calico Ghost Town even though we past it many times traveling to and from throughout the years past. I was surprised at how many things there are to see at Calico. The mining train around the mountain was nice to go on because I was able to get off some good shots with my camera while riding on the train. One of the events Calico had on this day was where several men from the audience try to move a large rock. Then it becomes the girls turn to try this feat. One girl surprised many of us because she moved the large rock about 7 feet. Pretty strong - pretty & strong. The gift shops have a variety of things to buy and the food smelled good. We stayed and wondered around through the hills, mines, shops, and viewed several skits with Calico Ghost Town employees dressed like the old west. A famous 50’s restaurant called Peggy Sue’s is close by but we decided to go someplace else for lunch. Ray & Claudia suggested a restaurant heading towards 15 freeway south and which would get us closer to home for lunch. This restaurant is new in California and I believe I heard someone say that more of these restaurants are ging to be built in California. If they do I hope they built one in Rancho Cucamonga. The food is delicious and the variety and selection is beyond anyone’s imagination. Needless to say I was one of the ones that ate too much and now it was time to stretch those legs and walk a little. I remember getting a plate with salad and then Texas style ribs, baby back ribs fruit and a lot more. The selection is awesome. It kind of reminds me of the Home Town Buffet, but even though it is similar there is no comparison. The cruisin’ club talked via 2-way radios about next year cruises and several good trips were mentioned which will definitely be on the cruise list coming out at the end of this year. Well there is much to cover on these reviews but the best of October is yet to come when our cruisin’ club goes on the much awaited Clem’s 3-day 2-night Tropicana Resort Hotel & Casino Event Halloween Car Show in Laughlin later on this month. This car show event week-end rates can’t be beat with for only $99.00 we get a 2-night stay at the Flamingo and the hotel will pay our registration & entry fee to the car show. Next review coming up first week of November.
