What’s new this year?
A quick look back on 2013 and the progress of your club. As you all know, a financially healthy club is crucial in assuring that the region stays “in business” for years to come. Due to the many successful events held in 2013 we had a financial surplus going into 2014! This is a direct result of our Concours, as well as your cash and raffle donations. With your continued support, our 2014 financial outlook is predicted to be healthy once again. Many thanks to our members for your contributions!
The 2014 Planning Party was standing room only as members scheduled 26 events on the calendar. Please go to our website to get the latest event list and updates - www.snr-pca.org.
We have a wonderful selection this year of new events along with our old “tried and true” favorites.

The Nevada Highway Patrol Academy needs volunteers to help their new cadets perfect their DUI testing skills. Transportation and alcohol will be provided. There will be no driving at this event.
Boxster Tech Session – Saturday, April 5th from 10 am to 12 noon. No charge to attend. Have you met our new Tech Chair Jess Lattin from Porsche of Reno? Jess will be hosting this event in the garage of the Porsche dealership. A few of our members will have their Boxsters showcased on the service bay to help you learn more about how to find-tune and maintain this engine. For more information contact Jess Lattin at email@example.com
Coming this Spring - we have a nod from Ransom Webster to tour his Porsche Collection. Details will be announced as they unfold. This is sure to be a “must see” and we are extremely grateful to Ranson for agreeing to open his doors to our members.
Cowboy Fast Draw – Scheduled in Fernley for May 31st. For a small fee you will be provided with a fast draw holster, gun (not real bullets), target circles and fast draw instructors. Cowboy attire is highly encouraged and you will feel out of place if you come in “normal” street clothes. Thanks to new members, and fast draw experts, Pete and Carol Dickenson for putting on this new event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
National Parade is scheduled for June 15th-22nd in Monterey, CA. Registration opens April 1st, and it is expected to sell out! If you plan to attend, please get your rooms early or explore the idea of renting a home.
Our club will also be hosting a Gimmick Rally on the morning of July 26th. We have not done one of these for a while! Our new Competition Chair, David Gotaas, is ready to sign up volunteers who can help put this fun event together. Right on the heels of the Gimmick Rally, we will kick off another Multi-Day Zone 7 Concours on the evening of July 26th and 27th. We will be working with Porsche of Reno to facilitate and execute this event at their location on Sunday, July 27th.
See our website for full schedule of events as they unfold!
Finally, as you all know we love to honor our new club members and help make them feel welcome.
We always have a great time at this event and I want to be sure everyone knows about this one so we have a great turnout. Here is the information for this year’s event:
New Member Breakfast – All members are welcome to attend this fun meet and greet event. New members who joined in 2013-1014 pay nothing to attend this event, and our more tenured and valued members are privileged to pay $15.95 per person for the event which includes breakfast. Contact Merlin Simons for details at email@example.com.
This is a fun time of year as we look forward to the improving weather and the opportunity to get out and enjoy our cars. Pull out your calendars and start plotting your favorite events that sound like fun to you. I know I will be attending as many events as possible and making it a point to add at least one new event that I haven’t done before. Don’t miss out on any of the fun and we’ll see you out there!
