We teamed up again with SLO County Parks to represent all that we have to offer again this year at the Savor the Central Coast event at Santa Margarita Ranch in Santa Margarita, CA. This event is a great exhibition of all the Central Coast of California has to offer. Most of the cities and communities were represented with booths and displays. Wineries were on full display and there are hundreds of them. Our booth was located right next to the International Wine Competition Gold Award winners. Many of our Central Coast wines were featured and it is nice to know that we have such a great group of vintners in our area to capture prestigious international awards. If you get the chance watch the movie "Bottle Shock" and see how wine got its start in California, you will not be disappointed as it is a great piece of history and quite entertaining too!
Well, our booth included our golf simulator, portable putting green, homemade potato chips from Dairy Creek's kitchen (DELICIOUS!!) Lay's watch out. Our goal was to give away free golf and perhaps some golfers to come back to the Central Coast and take advantage of the great golf, not just our courses, in this gorgeous area. We set up a closest to the pin contest and gave 2 free rounds and cart away to the top 10 closest shots. 20 rounds total!! We had a blast and had nearly 200 visitors try their luck on the simulator. The winner was Scott Morales of San Jose. Congratulations Scott and we hope to see you back here soon! We will get a good nights sleep and do it all again tomorrow. My thanks go out to my partners this weekend, Kent Lauble, pro from Dairy Creek and Morro Bay Michael Samaniego and Levi Garcia both pros at Chalk Mountain Golf Course. These guys did a fantastic job of providing instruction to all of the participants.
Photos will follow after tomorrow's final day of the event.
