Great News: Our annual SWGGA Potluck and Barbecue Picnic this year will be at the home of members Al and Linda Schafer on Sunday, August 29th, beginning at 5:00 PM.


There will be tri-tip and chicken (generously contributed by Steve and Susie Walker of RE/MAX GOLD), Cajun beef sausages and portobello mushrooms, plus the usual cornucopia of member-supplied appetizers, side dishes, and desserts. All the wines from the recent SWGGA Wine Competition will be available for tasting.

In appreciation of everyone hanging in there since we last got together, the event is FREE to members and spouses, with a free SWGGA wineglass for each. The suggested contribution for each guest (non-member) is $12, and includes a free wineglass.

And there is more… the Schafer’s pool will be available during the picnic.

Bring a check for guests, or mail it (made to SWGGA) to Jim Garrett, 21252 Clifford Road, Grass Valley CA 95949.

Also, you can bring additional wine for sharing or dinner, if you wish, but no wine is needed for the Scholarship raffle (we have a lot of fine wines in the cellar). 

Please bring a dish according to the initial of your last name: 

Appetizers: A – H

Salad or side dish: I – N

Dessert: O – Z

Please RSVP ASAP, but no later than August 10

On the honor system, we hope that everyone in attendance is vaccinated. It’s too important not to be
