Prescott - Gurley Street Grill - 8/19/17


We’ll meet at 9:00AM at Albertson's parking lot on Carefree Hwy about 1/4 mile east of Interstate 17, north side of the street and we’ll depart at 9:15.


We'll head west on carefree Hwy to Grand Ave and then north to Wickenburg where we will have a 15 minute comfort break at McDonalds. Departing McDonalds take the first traffic circle and follow Hwy 89.


About 10 miles out of Wickenburg, the road forks, Hwy 89 to the right will take you to Prescott, the left fork will take you to Kingman (don’t go there). We will drive the usual route up through Yarnell Hill and Hwy 89 to Prescott through the Prescott National Forest. which is always a scenic and fun drive on very twisty roads.


Watch your speed on Yarnell Hill as "Arizona's Finest" may be lurking about. Previous  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. Stay on Montezuma Street past Goodwin St and Whiskey row, the Courthouse will be on your right. The next street is Gurley, turn left and drive about 1/4 mile. The Grill will be on your right hand side at the corner of Gurley Street and Granite. There is a large bank owned parking lot NW of the Grill with suitable parking. You can see the lot when you turn right off Gurley St on to Granite, the lot will be 45 degrees to your left.  If you get lost phone the Grill at 928 445 3388 or try to call up another member on the club radio.


We have the patio reserved for our club, just mention the BMW Z Series Club. We can order off the regular menu.

 Some of the members may elect to drive home on the freeway and others will return on the same route as when coming up. This can be determined during the lunch so we will
all know where we are supposed to be and when. We'll fill the fuel tanks in Prescott after lunch the best place is the Shell station on Grove street. When you leave the Grill drive 3 short blocks west on Gurley street to Grove St and turn north about 3 short blocks and the Shell station will be right in front of you. We will plan to meet up there for the return trip.

Please have a full fuel tank at the start and remember your club name tag and radio.


If you are taking the freeway home take Gurley Street east to Hwy 69 and then on to interstate 17.


(Sorry I can't join you on this one I will be 3 days post op)



Paul Ebeyer, President Arizona BMW Z Series Club
