Default San Francisco, Livermore CA area flyers?

Are there any gyronauts in the San Francisco, Livermore CA area?
Maybe even a CFI I could get some time with?
I'm there for business fairly often - every month or two - and would like to get to know some folks to feed my habit while there.
Or maybe just advise me on local sites and feeding troughs.
Thanks!

PRA Chapter 5, based at Nuttree / Vacaville is defunct, and the Sierra Rotorcraft Club (Livermore) is on its last legs, but there are still some around. There's a SparrowHawk at LVK (Marc Goroff, mgoroff on the forum). I'm based about 30 minutes south of San Jose.

Thanks, waspair.
Any point of contact for the Sierra Rotorcraft Club in Livermore?
I'll be quite near the airport.

Larry I would try, they were having a fly-in once a year when I was living at the home up there before family needed me in SD so much 2 years ago maybe. But I did get a hold of them. I have met other up there and many call me from up there asking about PRA 31's co-owned two place program but not in any group.
From the phone calls I think there are folks up there who would like to be part of a chapter if one would advertize you might be able to setup a chapter or re-energizer one up there.
