The club tour will be on Saturday June
7th. The destination will be Little America restaurant in Flagstaff.
They are going to open up the Tiffany
Tree Lounge for us, normally reserved for evening dining only. It is a
beautiful atmosphere with the ambiance of the north woods and pine trees; a nice
departure for us in the southland. We will have the complete menu to select from
and billing by couples.
We will meet in Fountain Hills at the
Target shopping center, toward the West end near the Starbucks. The center is
located at Shea Blvd and Saguaro Blvd in Ftn Hills. We
will meet at 8:45 AM and depart at 9:00 AM and head north on Hwy 87 to
Payson where we will take a 15 minute comfort break near the casino and gas
station. We will continue north on highway 87 up the rim and to Clintís Wells
where we make a left turn and pick up Hwy 89A toward Flagstaff. DO NOT
BEAR RIGHT AND TAKE HWY 87 TO WINSLOW. We will continue on hwy
89A to Happy Jack, Mormon Lake, Lake Mary and Flagstaff. As we approach
Flagstaff from the southeast we will be on Lake Mary Road and making a right
hand turn to get on Interstate 17 that will take us to Interstate 40, you will
then be heading east toward Albuquerque so look for the Albuquerque signs, then,
look for signs on the right that say, "Little America" ( I'm
pretty sure exit # 198 is the correct off ramp) and that is where you get off.
Little America will be down that road a short distance.
If anyone needs a comfort break we will
fit it in somewhere along the route - perhaps a stop at Mormon Lake, especially
if we are ahead of schedule. Otherwise, the next comfort break will be at the
destination or just before we get on Interstate 17 in Flagstaff at the gas
station we frequently utilize.
You may need a light jacket if you plan
to have the top down; I'm not sure what the June temperatures are for Flagstaff.
Please have a full fuel tank at the start and remember to bring your club radio.
I believe we can get fuel at Little America after lunch for the return trip.
Since 89A in Oak Creek Canyon is closed until July 4th, there are only two
routes to return to the Valley, the same way we went up or take I 17 all the way
home. We can discuss this toward the end of the luncheon and everyone is free to
pair up with whomever they wish and select whatever route. In any case, this is
usually a full day of driving (which is a good thing because thatís what the
club is all about).
We look forward to seeing everyone.
A complete, detailed tour guide will be
sent out eventually but please send
in your RSVP now, so we can get a head count for the restaurant.
