California’s Great America has been busy this offseason, and whenever it reopens from its pandemic-induced closure, guests will notice a spruced-up park, carrying the momentum of the previous years’ work....
Our first regional event of 2009 was a big success! If you attended, you know what I mean.
Eighty-one members and guests registered for the Behind-the-Scenes Tour and Friday Night Social. Forty-eight people purchased mini-golf tickets, and nine teams of four competed. Team “Wild Mice” won the mini-golf tournament, Congratulations go out to Aaron Browne and Stephen Lesh from Sunnyvale, Paul Asente from Redwood City, and Chris Head from San Francisco. The Wild Mice had the combined winning score of 169, and won a combination of hard cover editions of “The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk – A Century by the Sea” and the 100th Anniversary DVD donated by Darren R. Besoyan and the Santa Cruz Seaside Company.
Saturday morning ERT was attended by 60+ members and guests, and the Giant Dipper was surprisingly flying for morning ERT. Thankfully, the threatening rains held off until Sunday, and all enjoyed a day of fun, sun, food, and rides at the 102-year-old historic seaside amusement park.
Look for the full story and photos in the April issue of ACE NorCal News.
