    Hi Stan,

    That would be a bit like having a Shusui prize and giving it to an Asagi.

    But... Should there be no suitable Kumonryus, then a Matsukawabake would be a good option.
    Shame I won't be there.

    We are 90% sure we are going, need to start planning the trip. What else is there to do in the area?

    Depends what you're into. There's a little of everything in the Bay Area.

    San Francisco is about half hour away. Lot's of sightseeing stuff - Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.
    Past the Golden Gate bride and a little further north, you have Muir Woods with the giant redwoods.
    If you're into wine (or spas for your wife), Napa, Sonoma, and Calistoga are 1.5 hours away.

    Heading south, Carmel and Montery is about 2.5 hours away - Pebble Beach golf course, the scenic 17 mile drive, Montery Bay Aquarium, and Steinbecks Cannery Row.

    Am working on a winery tour for the judges and who wish to attend on Monday April 3,2006.
    There are many wineries located in Livermore which is less than 30 minutes drive from the Wyndham Garden Hotel.

    for SF, there are the castro district, koit tower, twin peak, treasure island, alcatraz angle island, salselito (?), the beach north of golden gate. north of golden gate there is a hill that you get a bird's eye view on the bridge

    for santz cruz, there is mysterious spot, and mysterious house of santa clara. thre is a hot spring resort at the middle of nowhere south of gilroy.

    highway 1 south of Carmel is very very beautiful, the preferred vehicle for that segment of road is a coupe with hard-top.

    there is a wine country train from SF to sonoma. For Big redwood lovers, the closest is Muir wood, situated just north of golden gate, where you see nothing but trees.

    for those who love a spin of luck, there are a few places, like lucky change, for their entertainment.
