Word from the President

Craig Kugler, President

They say “April showers bring May flowers” and April certainly provided needed precipitation for our area. Fortunately we’ve enjoyed fabulous weather for our club events so far and that looks to continue as we head into May and the start of our prime driving season. I have been thrilled to see so many Porsches at club events recently: 30 cars at our New Member Breakfast representing over 40 years of Porsche history and 22 cars on a fantastic drive & dine to Wellington, NV. Wellington? Where’s that you say? A number of new to the area members got a chance to drive there on some fantastic back roads and found new places to explore. Just part of the enjoyable Sierra Nevada Region experience!

In this edition, you’ll get the highlights of our April events which include the annual New Member Breakfast, New 911 Tech Session and Dust Off Tour. My sincere thanks to our event hosts who help enrich our member’s experience. Upcoming events noted inside include information on: Saturday Breakfasts, Caravan to CRAB, Summer Wine Social, Reno Rennsport Swap Meet and the Mammoth High Alpine Tour. And those are only the May through mid-June events! A Nevada City Drive & Dine (pre-Treffen tour) and our 2nd Summer Wine Social finish out our June events. We really do have an exciting summer of events on tap for you!  Check out our upcoming events online at our web page: www.snr-pca.org

In addition to the above items, two events loom large on our horizon: our Zone 7 Concours and Treffen Lake Tahoe. Our Concours is an important event for our region and with a late July date 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. Committee meetings are starting and volunteer sign-ups for this critical event will be forthcoming. As for Treffen Lake Tahoe I’m sure you saw the three page article in the April Panorama which outlined the Treffen concept and gave a hint of what’s coming up at “our” Treffen this September. The Treffen website (www.treffen.pca.org) is now up and registration will start before the end of May! A Treffen Volunteer Sign-up Sheet is circulating at club events now and we have a number of members already on this volunteer list. We will need many more volunteers for driving tours, hospitality and other Treffen related event support. If you want to volunteer for Concours and/or Treffen but can’t make a club event in May to sign up, call or e-mail me to let me know you want to volunteer.

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