The last month has been a fantastic one for our club. Starting with our 50th Anniversary Weekend Celebration, we put together a four event weekend with social, car display, driving and dining activities that exceeded my expectations and, hopefully, yours as well. The most gratifying aspect of this celebration was the level of participation by our members. Even with construction delays and detours, unseasonable weather and crazy traffic, the Meet and Greet at the Nugget was well attended. The weather concerns of Friday afternoon and evening gave way to a beautiful Saturday morning, smiling down on 40 Porsches for our Show and Shine at Porsche of Reno. The drive & dine lunch was a real treat capped off by our drive up and through Virginia City. Finally, the Celebration Banquet, was just a fabulous event and hosted at the National Automobile Museum. Su Kemper has a detailed weekend recap in this edition which I know you will enjoy.
I want to extend my sincere thanks to the sponsors and contributors who supported our events and the Banquet Raffle. I also want to thank our 50th Anniversary Committee members who worked long and hard for a year to make this weekend an exciting and memorable for our members. The Committee included: Karen Goody, Paul Giannini, George Queyrel, Ron Lewis, John and Alice Strom, Karen Vibe, Rick Baker and Su Kemper. I especially want to thank George Batcabe, our club’s first president, for his vision for this event and for our club.
Our June Saturday Breakfast at Lili’s continued to be well attended, with 27 members enjoying the food and friendship of our group. As a reminder, the July breakfast will be held on Saturday, July 11th due to the 4th of July holiday. A Sunday afternoon drive like no other – our Volcano Drive and Dine produced a great turnout of 32 members and 17 cars on a back roads journey to tiny Volcano, CA. We had a great drive and a wonderful lunch.. Mark Gordine has a nice article on this event.
