Word from the President

Karen Vibe, President

Spring is in the air!

Spring is in the air and it is time to dust off your Porsche and put your rubber to the roads of Reno/Tahoe. We didn’t have much of a winter this year but, on the bright side, we can take advantage of the clear roads and the beautiful spring weather this season is offering. 

Our Dust-Off Tour, hosted by Rick and Ana Baker, is going to be a great one. Be sure to check online for this April event as well as the 25 other upcoming events throughout this year. 

We hope you can find something you will enjoy and come out to meet and greet with other Porsche members in your region. We want you to be involved!

As I am writing the article, I am working on the first draft to present to our Board for the bid of 2016 National Porsche Escape. The 4–day timeline includes driving tours, museums, golf tournament, and finalizing the cost and location of our host hotel in attempt to put in a bid for 2016 National Escape. 

I will be presenting the bid on the first day of National Parade in Monterey on June 15th. Wish us luck in this endeavor!! 

Registration opens for National Parade on April 1st and is expected to be a sellout. 

Our other board members are very active too! For example, Rebecca Dixon, our club secretary, is working on our Facebook awareness and you can do your part by having your friends “like” our Facebook page. Search:
“Sierra Nevada Region Porsche Club of America” and “like” our page to get updates and photos of our events all year. 

Doug Bull, our Vice President, is looking for businesses to advertise in our circular. Want a bigger newsletter and more content? We need more ads! Business card size ads are under $200 per year! Jess Lattin, our new Tech Chair (or, as I like to call him, “Super T”) is putting the finishing touches on our first Tech Session in 2014. Come out to the Porsche dealership April 5th to find out more about the ins and outs of the Porsche Boxster engine.

A big thank you to our newer members, Ana and Rick Baker, who put on the Reno Bighorns event March 8th. We did have a few last-minute attendees at the basketball game and I hope to try another sport event next year. Ana and Rick will also be hosting the Dust-Off Tour – they hope to have a big turnout for this event later in April. 

Pulling out all the stops – Bob McLaughlin and Joanne Peake out did themselves this year with the St. Patty’s Potato Porsche Event. The food was great, the company was exceptional, the potatoes were fast and the raffle prizes were awesome! Those who attended had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to doing this again next year!

Lots more to come this season and please check our website for the latest news and event updates.

Start your engines and I hope to see you at an upcoming event soon!
