This year's July event will
be held in JUNE! 06/23/2012
Those of you who have been members for a few years know
that in the past 5 years we have gathered at Dillon's restaurant for dinner in
Glendale either on or around the 4th of July.
We are not planning that event this year, we are
considering a dinner tour on Saturday, June 23rd. The plan is to select an
upscale restaurant in Prescott, depart Phoenix in the afternoon with a 5 or 5:30
arrival time in Prescott. The route will take us to Wickenburg, Yarnell Hill,
The Prescott National Forest, into downtown Prescott and then on to the
restaurant of choice.
June 23th destination is the Dry
Gulch Steakhouse in Prescott.
We have completed the plan for the June 30th Dinner drive
to Prescott. We will meet at the Albertson's parking lot on Carefree Hwy about
1/4 mile east of Interstate 17, north side of the street. Let's meet at the far
east end of the complex in front of the bank. There are refreshments and a
bathroom available in the Albertson's store.
We should arrive there at 3:00PM. At 3:15 PM we will head
west on Carefree Hwy toward Wickenburg. We will have a 15 minute stop at
McDonalds in Wickenburg. Our approximate ETA at the restaurant is set for
After departing from Wickenburg, we will drive the usual
route up through Yarnell Hill and Hwy 89 to Prescott through the Prescott
National Forest. Previous June/July trips on this route usually have a promise
of cooler weather once we hit the town of Yarnell. If your top is up and you
want to lower it, this is a good place to do it and we'll stop the caravan to
accommodate this. Please keep your club radio tuned in for instructions.
The balance of the drive is pretty straight forward until
we arrive at the outskirts of Prescott. We will be entering the town from Hwy 89
which becomes White Spar Rd for a short distance and then becomes Montezuma
Street after a left hand curve. Stay on Montezuma Street past Gurley Street and
continue straight ahead, the Courthouse will be on your right ~~~~~ continue on
and just after you pass Merritt Ave Montezuma Street turns into Whipple St and
curves to the left ~~~~~remain on Whipple St and when it crosses Willow creek
Road it turns into Iron Springs Road. (The Yavapia Medical Center will be on
your right at that intersection) In approximately ½ mile Adams St branches off
of Iron Springs Road to the left, there will be a mobile home court at that
intersection as a navigation aid. Continue on Adams past Kile St, about one
block and the Dry Gulch Restaurant is at 1630 Adams
Street. phone 928 778 9693.
If this seems complicated just use Google Maps directions from the Prescott
Courthouse to the restaurant address, zoom in and print out the map.
We will need to refuel before starting home and the timing
for that will depend whether or not we are early, late, or on schedule for the
5:30 time. We'll call out something on the radio. I believe there is a Shell
station en route on either Whipple St or Iron Springs Road.
Please have a full fuel tank when starting the trip and
remember to bring your club radio. We do need your RSVP so we will have an
accurate count for the restaurant so please, let's hear from you. I am including
the attendance list effective Sunday June 11th. See below
