Nope, but I do want to go one of these days.


Going to the Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival this weekend though.


...and by the way, Mel's makes an awesome Hamburger! Thanks for the tip.

When are the races? I want to go this year if I can get away from work for five minutes. I think I am going to head to the air museum at McClellan here in Sacto this weekend just to get out of the house for a few hours.

Would love to go!

A friend of mine was crew chief for Dago Red (unlimited P-51), got me free passes back in the 90's, haven't been since. The Budweiser girls were almost as awesome as the airplanes!

Reno Air Racing Association - 2011 National Championship Air Races & Air Show - September 14-18, 2011


The 18th is the last day and the day of the season finally the Gold Main Race. IMO the best day to be there for the racing.

Your welcome. Did you ever find that Ravoli place or are they out of business?

I found it, but the ravioli was disappointing. I'll just buy Corti's ravioli when I'm in Sac. However, Andrae's Bakery in Amador City is World Class.
