2006 Almanor Day 3

I got up and went for a four mile run north from the Dorado Inn along Highway 147. After a quick breakfast, Drew, Jack and I went out on the lake with Jill Wallen in their boat with Carol Wallen and her friend Sara. Drew wakeboarded and Jack went on the kneeboard.

We spent a long time parked on the lake with Hunter's boat just drifting. Everyone went swimming and went back and forth between the boats. I have always enjoyed these types of times.

Back at the cabins, we had a quick lunch and headed up to play golf. We took four foursomes to Plumas Pines. I ended up in a group with John and Jill Wallen and Jack. I had a 57 on the front nine and then a 50 on the back nine. I actually had three pars.

Jack was essentially playing best ball. He would hit this ball and then most of the time we would pick it up and he would hit from my shoot. Jack got stronger as the day wore on. Several of his shots were better than mine!

By the time, we got back to the cabin it was almost 7:00 p.m. Although it took some time, Hunter and I successfully rallied everyone to go for chinese food in Chester. We took 22 people to dinner at the Happy Garden Restaurant. The one sour note is that it appears that the nearby Ranch House is closed. We have gone there for almost 20 years to play pool and shuffleboard. It was almost 10:00 p.m. by the time we got home from dinner.
