Thanks from Downieville

In the next few days we will be posting pictures and reports from the "09" Downieville Bottle Show. While we are putting these posts together I would like to thank all the folks that made this years show another success.

The Friday Night BBQ Crew:
Rick & Jackie Lindgren, Tim & Fran Higgins, Lou & Leisa Lambert, Warren & Linda Friedrich. Charlie & Tina Holt, Janice Lindgren and Rick & Cherry Simi

The Wine Tasting was provided by Will & Jeanne Clark of 49 Wines here in Downieville with help from Janice Lindgren. What a great tasting!

This years displayers included Max & Shannon Bell, Rick Pisano, Sierra County Treasurer Stephanie Levings, Ken Edward, Jerry Forbes, Lou Lambert and Warren Friedrich, thanks to all of you for the fantastic displays.

Thanks to all the people that helped setup and tear down tables, chairs etc. There were way too many helping for me to remember all of you

Of course it wouldn't be a show and sale without all the dealers that made the trek to Downieville and provided the bottles and collectibles for the people attending the show. Thanks!

And a special thanks to all the folks who came up to the mountains and attended the show, without you we wouldn't have a bottle show. Thanks again to everyone and we hope to see you next year!


  1. This was a Damn fine bottle show. Paid attendance was just slightly more than a quarter of the stated population of Downieville!
    A great time was had by all . And remember. If you want your hobby to continue. Attend a bottle show, even if it's a little out of your way. Next up, Santa Rosa and Canyonville!

  2. Rick and all your comrades, this was a great event with the best highlight the Friday night BBQ. John Shroyer and I always look forward to it and you have built this event into one fine show. A big thanks to the wives, girlfriends and significant for all their hard work, and making this a truely memorable event. Can't wait until nest year. Thanks again.

  3. Looking forward to attending the 2014 show ! All the best , Dale and Barbara Santos.
