The heat is on! Yes we’re finally into the summer season and our events are on fire as well. Look at our Calendar section inside or go to our web calendar and you can see events of every type are coming up. I hope you are clearing your calendar to enjoy all that we have planned. Member participation at events continues to be high and that includes a number of new members! So keep coming on out and having fun with us!
Flash Announcement from Porsche Parade: “SNR takes 2nd Place in our division of the PCA National Newsletter Contest!” Special congratulations go to 2015 Editor Cathy Rossner and all who contributed to the newsletter last year. The September and November/December editions were the featured months. That’s 3 PCA National Awards for THE CIRCULAR since 2009!
In this edition, you’ll get the highlights of the Paint Protection Film Tech Session, our first Wine Social of the year and the Mammoth High Alpine Tour as well as a first hand report on a Laguna Seca Drivers Ed event and a Competition Update. My sincere thanks to our event hosts and our contributors who help enrich our member’s experience. Upcoming events noted inside include information on: the Virginia City Treffen pre-tour, Commemorative Air Force Pancake Breakfast, our Wine Social #3 and the “Porsches, Pizza and Portraits” Treffen pre- tour. We also have several Concours related events in July starting with an important Concours Committee meeting on July 10th, the annual Concours Car Prep and Judging School on July 17th and our Concours Weekend on July 30th/31st! We have a lot going on so if you can’t find something Porsche related to do in July, just let me know! Check out all our upcoming events online at: www.snr-pca.org
Treffen Lake Tahoe registration finally kicked off in mid-June and to date 300 PCA members from across the country have signed up. That means we are about 75% full so there’s still time to register if you are interested. With one exception, all other drive tours are still open! Check out the activities on the Treffen website (www.treffen.pca.org). Remember this is a space limited event so when we get to the magic numbers (200 rooms booked or 250 cars registered), the event will close! If you will be or plan to be a Treffen Volunteer and you want to attend the Treffen social events and dinners, you will need to register. If you have any questions about registration, contact me right away! We still need volunteers for Treffen so e-mail me if you are interested in helping out on any of the days or events.
Our Concours is another important event for our region. This year we are looking to expand participation to all Porsche owners, including non-PCA members. This event is not only a great way to display your beautiful car, but also to volunteer and support our club. This is definitely a “tell your Porsche friends” event. If you want to participate on the Committee or volunteer to help, contact Steve Kent for more details!
I hope to see you at our next event. Until then, be safe!
