Reunion April 19-21, 2013
The 2013 Tortuga/Mara Toga Reunion once again returns to the Buellton - Los Olivos area in Santa Barbara County with the main event (refreshments, snacks and a delicious BBQ on Saturday afternoon) all starting at Noon on April 20 at the Chamberlin Ranch in Los Olivos. As usual, many participants will show up Friday afternoon for a Friday evening dinner at a local restaurant, and most participants will hang around Sunday morning for further reminiscing and possibly deciding on the year for the next gala reunion.
Rooms have been blocked out at Pea Soup Andersen's Inn in Buellton for both Friday and Saturday nights. Reservations should be made as soon as possible, as not quite as many rooms were able to be blocked out as in the past. Call Andersen's at 800-732-7687 or 805-688-3216 and specify that you are with the Tortuga-Chamberlin group and you should get a room for about $114 a night. Early callers will probably have a choice of 1 King or 2 Queen beds, and also a choice between upstairs or ground floor.
It is likely that we will return to AJ Spurs on HiWay 246 for Friday night dinner. We also plan to have light hors d' oeuvres and a full cash bar (featuring the fabled Tortuga Punch cocktail) in a private room at the motel after the Saturday afternoon BBQ on the Chamberlin Ranch.
