Cruises, wineries, white sand beaches, international cultures, museums, historical tours, musical stage productions and more. That’s what you’ll experience on Road Runners sponsored day excursions or multi-day trips. With over 260 in attendance at the Road Runners May 10 annual meeting, an array of exciting adventures were introduced through the club’s travel partners Premier Tours Global and Brandt Travel.

The social cocktail hour offered a lavish layout of delicacies prepared by our own Robson Ranch Grill staff. Road Runners feasted on traditional bruschetta on baguette; fruit skewers of melon, pineapple and grape; charcuterie-platter piled high with gourmet cheeses and meats; cupcakes flavored with mocha with chocolate chip cream and lemon and raspberry cream; and can’t-eat-just-one chocolate chip and macadamia nut cookies.

Then it was onto the club’s business: approving the 2016 Annual Meeting minutes, reciting the membership stats, reporting the club’s financial status and electing officers. By proclamation the slate of officers was unanimously voted in. Peggy Crandell Duff, Gayle Coe, Susan Hebert, Pat Thompson, Vicki Baker, Bert Zeitlin, Jan Wallace, Phyllis Ayers, Dave Parker, Edward Barnett and Pearlie Owens will serve the club in the upcoming year.

During the meeting nearly $2,000 in door prizes were awarded ranging from gift cards to restaurants and area merchants to travel related gift baskets, bottles of wine and discounts on future travel. Special thanks was extended to those members who enthusiastically filled the bucket with suggestions for future trips.

So now that the “business” is done for yet another year, it’s time to mark your calendars for fun-filled trips with your fellow Robson Ranchers. Learn more about fabulous travel opportunities by visiting the Road Runners website at
