About the event

The 2023 Delta Cruise

B & W Resort, Isleton CA – October 6th, to October 8th


The Northern CA/Lake Tahoe ACBS Chapter wants to welcome you to join us at the California Delta for the 2023 Delta Cruise. The first weekend in October has a permanent place on many ACBS member’s calendars reserved for the ACBS Delta Cruise.

Come and explore the many Delta Waterways, winding along fields of crops or sheep. Reminisce with old friends. If this is your first time, then come and introduce yourself. Meet friends that you’ll have for the rest of your lifetime and bring your families. The San Joaquin Delta has literally thousands of miles to explore and the opportunity to experience this magical area is right around the corner! So please complete and return the attached sign up sheet as soon as possible.

This is a fun weekend that starts with a traditional potluck on Friday night. Be sure to arrive early in the afternoon so you can enjoy exploring. Several of us head off to Waterfront Grille, Wimpy’s or Windmill cove for a little lunch. Don’t eat too much and be sure to take a chart so you can find your way back to the B&W resort in time to enjoy the sunset BBQ with your ACBS friends.  Check in at registration to get your packets for the weekend.

The Friday night BBQ Potluck begins at 5:30pm at the B&W Resort. DON’T FORGET TO bring a dish to share if you want to partake. Bring your own meat/entrée to BBQ, and of course, libations to your personal liking! The Barbecue pits, charcoal, plates, plastic utensils along with water will be provided.

Saturday morning, we’ll jump start your day with complimentary coffee served on the levee, just above the docks at 7:30am. Then it’s back to the cabin to pack your personal picnic feast and make ready to get underway.

At 9:00 am there will be a skipper’s meeting on the levee and at 9:45am, Tim Stapleton will lead the parade of boats for the Poker Run Cruise to Grindstone Joe’s.  Tim is looking for a few boat owners to help with the poker run. Contact Tim if you can help.

Our lunch destination is Grindstone Joe’s, a private island and club that has become a tradition at this event. We’re lucky to have access to this unique private island. Gather with your friends under the Pavilion for a relaxing lunch, or bring some lawn chairs and games for the large lawn out back.  Don’t forget to pick up your garbage and all of your gear before heading back.

Returning to B&W Resort, prepare yourself for a catered BBQ feast prepared on site with our same caterer from last year.  Again, don’t forget your favorite libations.

No Breakfast Cruise this year, however on Sunday, at about 11:00 am, we will disembark from B&W for another great River Cruise. Who knows what this year will bring. Most likely ice cream or we’ll pass a place you can stop for lunch on your own.

Don’t miss this annual ACBS favorite event!
