Any on Here Planning a July Visit to Monte Rio?
#1
Just curious. It's just weeks away. I may run out there to see what security features are being put in place. Once the Boho's start flying their Gulfstreams into Santa Rosa Airport, I won't go near Monte Rio.

If you're headed that way. Post here or send me a pm and I'll try to help with frequencies and other info from past events.

Monte Rio is a census-designated place (CDP) in Sonoma County, California along the Russian River near the Pacific Ocean. The town of Guerneville lies northeast of Monte Rio, and Jenner is to the west. The population was 1,152 at the 2010 census, up from 1,104 at the 2000 census. Bohemian Grove is located in Monte Rio.

Essential California: The all-male, ultra-elite Bohemian Grove meets 2019

By Julia Wick (No relation to John)

Jun 12, 2019 | 3:30 AM

Good morning, and welcome to the Essential California newsletter. It’s Wednesday, June 12, and I’m writing from Los Angeles.
If and when the revolution comes, the angry masses would be strained to find a better symbol of moneyed, mutually beneficial power than the all-male Bohemian Grove.

It is here, deep in the Sonoma redwoods, that the masters of the universe have gathered every summer for more than a century. Think Davos, but glamping.
San Francisco’s all-male Bohemian Club remains one of the most exclusive social clubs in America, providing social cohesion for a power base that extends far beyond the confines of California. Set on 2,700 wooded acres — 75 miles and a world away from modern San Francisco — Bohemian Grove serves as a summer retreat for hundreds of club members and their equally storied guests.
Like the swallows to San Juan Capistrano, oil barons, industrialists and former presidents aplenty have returned to their secretive forest every July since 1878. Richard Nixon’s presidential campaign and the Manhattan Project are both said to have emerged out of these woods. Rumored regulars have included Henry Kissinger, various Bushes, the brothers Koch, Supreme Court justices and too many corporate chieftains to count.

Snip
Last week, the legendary men’s retreat met an unlikely obstacle in the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, who questioned approval of a contract for the Sheriff’s Department to provide extra security outside the encampment, as they have done since 2004. (The club reimburses the county for use of the four off-duty deputies.)

(the 4 Sheriffs Dept deputys and the County are paid $150,000 for the two weeks service. There are also likely perks for the deputies and the Sheriff's department..cases of very expensive wine and whiskey, fresh steaks and other goodies left behind by the Bohos . The angry supervisor's name was obviously missing from the "gift list" and is pissed. https://ktla.com/2019/06/11/secretive-me...criticism/ )


“I don’t see how we can be providing law enforcement for a club that discriminates so blatantly,” Supervisor Shirlee Zane said at last week’s meeting, when the contract first appeared before the board for routine approval.

Snip
No one contacted her, despite Bohemian Grove being in her district, but she heard “that there were Grove members and Grove leadership calling my male fellow elected officials.”

If it is true, we come back, I'd like to come back as a Love Bug...to spend a lifetime fluttering in the warm sun and mating in mid air...oh what a life that would be! Until I run into a hungry bird looking for a snack or I get splattered on a vehicles wind shield.    Chuckle

Local hiring..

With acres of towering redwood forest nestled in Sonoma County's Russian River wine country, The Bohemian Grove provides an amazing environment to work in. Club Members and their guests venture to the Grove each summer for two events: the Spring Jinks and Summer Encampment.
