Default Lunch with Willie in Yuma, 3/19

All,

Everyone is invited to join myself and possibly Steve from Phoenix to meet Willie in old downtown Yuma for lunch at Lute's Casino on Sunday March 19th. It actually hasn't been a casino since the 50's but it is full of interesting items and objects hanging off the walls and the ceiling. We will be arriving between 11-12, here is the website if you want to check it out.
Home - Lutes Casino, Yuma, Arizona

Address:
Lutes Casino
221 Main Street
Yuma, AZ 85364

For anyone that wants after that not far away is the Yuma Territorial Prison, it is pretty interesting to go see and only costs $6 bucks to get in.

If anyone from the San Diego area is interested, I can get a caravan together for the trip.
I'll post the details later on.

The OLD CASINO Is a very unusual place to visit. You will get a chuckle out of the DECOR. Good food and reasonable prices also.

A good chance for a get together with other G1 Insighters. The Yuma prison is interesting also, a good look at past history which a lot of people nowdays ignore.

For people in SD it is probably a 3 hour drive, but in a CARAVAN it's seems shorter and a lot of fun/entertainment.

It looks like we will have 3 caravans starting and two finishing. I will have a caravan to meet up with Scott and his group in El Centro, then WE will caravan into Yuma.

Any San Diego area Insighters who would like to join the caravan. PM me for details.

All "Having Lunch with Willie".

Wishing all have a great time in Yuma. I know you will. Wished the Insighters' get-together was a little closer to Atlanta area. I would love to meet everyone and be there to enjoy the fun.

While stationed at El Tora MCAS, CA in the early 60's, we would deploy to Yuma for gunnery runs & practice in-general. I know Yuma has changed a lots since them, but would be good to be there with all Insighters and experience it once more.

Again, have a great one & drink a cold-one (maybe 2 or 3) for me.

Be safe, but a great time.

Here is the latest on the "Caravan" from Campo, for the LUNCH on 3/19/2017.

We will meet/leaving the GOLDEN ACORN CASINO parking lot (South side), take the #61 exit from I-80 in SD County. Departure time will be at 9 AM "sharp".

We will meet with Scott's CARAVAN in El Centro at the (In @ Out Burger) parking lot located on South 4th St. Take exit #175. (Around 10 AM)

Then continue on to the final destination in Yuma. Arriving around 11 AM at the Lutes Casino.

Any questions, PM me for answers.
I hope to see a good group.

Willie

I emailed the folks here in AZ but so far no one has said they will be able to join us, bummer. Might just be me and Steve.
