Word from the President

Craig Kugler, President

So many events…so little time! July was a fantastic month for our club with tours, a unique breakfast, a wine social and a month ending Concours Weekend (more about that in our next edition). What was most gratifying was the level of participation at these events from club members, especially new members – exceptional turn out and of course serious fun!  August has more of the same so let it be hot – we’re just warming up! Look at our Calendar section inside or go to our web calendar and you can see what we have coming up. So note your calendar and plan to have fun with us!

In this edition, you’ll get the highlights of three of our Treffen pre-tours: Nevada City, Virginia City and the Porsches, Pizza and Portraits tours. These tours have been great fun for our members and they have been very well attended! Our Treffen tour teams have also gotten valuable training and feedback on how to improve the tours for the upcoming Treffen. Also included is a report on the Pancake Breakfast with the Commemorative Air Force which provided a fun and historically interesting outing.  My sincere thanks to our event hosts, tour leaders and our contributors who help enrich our member’s experience. Upcoming events noted inside include information on: Saturday Breakfast, our Wine Social #4, the Genoa Treffen pre-tour and Treffen Training Day. Further out don’t forget about our always popular Fall Wine Tour in late September. Get your room reserved now as this tour is limited to 15 cars! While August isn’t quite as busy as July, we still have a lot going on. I’m sure you can find a club activity to attend.  Check out all our upcoming events online at: snr-pca.org

With only six weeks to go, Treffen Lake Tahoe registration has closed and  320 PCA members from across the country have signed up for this inaugural event. While we had more space in several of our drive tours, the hotel room block at the Resort at Squaw Creek was maxed out at 200. Although we have fewer attendees than we originally expected, we will still have 176 registered cars on site. A fantastic turnout! Our Treffen Committee has been working hard preparing for this event. Those members that have volunteered are being contacted for their assignments and a Treffen training day is scheduled for late August. With many PCA National Staff members attending, this is truly a high visibility event for our region! I appreciate all the support we have received from our members to date and I know this will be a very successful event!  

I hope to see you at our next event. Until then, be safe!
