10th Annual 2018
53-54 Skylark Winter Meet
By Ken Mitson
This year’s Annual Skylark Winter Meet will be held January 18th and 19th 2018. We will be meet at 8:30AM SHARP Thursday morning, at a location (yet to be determined) on the West side of Glendale, AZ. From there we will load three vans to travel to Buckeye AZ, where we will tour the Palo Verde Power Interpretive Center. At the Center we will learn everything about the manufacture and distribution of electricity throughout the country. We will have three docent’s to guide us thru some of the inner active displays in the Facility. The tour is approximately two hours.
After visiting the Palo Verde Power Center we will re-board the vans for a 50 mile drive to Wickenburg, AZ, an old Western town. Upon arriving in town we will stop at the Bar 7 restaurant for lunch. After lunch we will proceed to the Desert Caballeros Western Museum where we will be assigned docent’s for a two hour tour. We will also meet one of the leading saddle makers in the country, who will tell us everything we want to know about western saddles. Following the museum there will be about an hour available to visit the unique shops in Wickenburg. At approximately 4:30 we will board buses for the return trip to Glendale, AZ. We will then all drive to Al & Mary Snyder’s home for pie and ice cream!!!
On Friday, starting at noon, there will be an open house at the Mitson residence for lunch and to share our fellowship until approximately 4:00 PM.
