Sunday April 14th - at Sailor Bar of Fair Oaks
Registration for most GCO events opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 12 noon. Starting Times are assigned from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Beginner Instruction is offered as requested. Hint: Come anytime between 9 and 11 to have time for instruction and a course.
Costs are $7 for non-members or $5 for members for an individual, plus $2 for each additional person in a group. Everyone in the group will get a map (the fee/map are optional for children 5 and under). A second course is $2 per person. You can also rent a compass for $1 plus a refundable $5 deposit.
This will be the county park and I believe the parking will be 5 dollars at this time. For full details where Sailor Bar is located.
