Mark your calendar for the 2016 Delta Cruise

Come to the Event of the Year!  The Delta Cruise is a fun weekend that starts with a traditional potluck on Friday night, September 30th. Be sure to arrive early in the afternoon so you can enjoy exploring some of the California Delta’s 1000’s of miles of twisting, turning waterways.

Friday, those who are there early head off to Giustis, Wimpy’s, Rosa’s or Windmill cove for a little lunch.  Don’t eat too much and be sure to take a map so you can find your way back to the B&W resort in time to enjoy the sunset BBQ with your ACBS friends. The Friday night BBQ Potluck begins at 5:30pm.  DON’T FORGET to bring a dish to share, your own meat/entrée to BBQ, and of course, libations to your personal liking! The barbecue pits, charcoal, plates, cups and plastic utensils along with sodas and water will be provided.

Saturday morning, a complimentary continental breakfast will be served on the levee, just above the docks at 7:30 am. Then it’s back to the cabin to pack your personal picnic feast and make ready to get underway.  At 9:30 am, the parade of boats will head out of the Marina and into the wide Delta channel for the Poker Run Cruise to Grindstone Joe’s, our lunch destination. Grindstone Joe’s is a private island and club that has become a tradition at this event. We’re lucky to have access to this unique private island.  Gather with your friends under the Pavilion for a relaxing lunch, or bring some lawn chairs and games for the large lawn out back.

Returning to B&W Resort, prepare yourself for a catered BBQ feast prepared by “Touch of Mesquite.” We are so fortunate to be able to get this caterer again.   Again, don’t forget your favorite libations.

On Sunday, we will be cruising to Moore’s Riverboat Restaurant located right on the Mokelumne River, for our Sunday Brunch.  The Bloody Mary bar was fantastic last year and there are plenty of docks for our beautiful boats.  It’s so close that everyone can boat to it even if you’re not planning on continuing on for the Sunday River Cruise.  After our tummies are full and we take a group photo, we’ll be underway again.  It’s just a short ride back to B&W to pull your boat out or to gather up for the River Cruise. At about 12:30, we will disembark from B&W for another great River Cruise.  We’re guessing that ice cream will be involved.

Don’t miss this annual ACBS favorite and let’s see if we can get  50 boats at this event!  Watch for the sign-up form in your next Western Wood AND online here.
