What a summer! It’s hard to believe it’s already September! Expectations are high for Treffen Lake Tahoe and this was reinforced at Werks Reunion where PCA Executive Council, national staff and Zone 7 members let me know they are anticipating a fantastic event! By the time you read this, Treffen Lake Tahoe will be in full swing and many of our members will not only be attending but volunteering to support this inaugural national event. We had a volunteer training day recently and 41 members attended to get a detailed event presentation, volunteer assignment overview and a chance to complete the volunteer roster. With the level of enthusiasm these members displayed and with the other volunteers that will be joining them, I know SNR will be wonderfully represented on the PCA National stage!
In this edition, you’ll get the highlights of the last of our Treffen pre-tours to Genoa. Also included is a report on the Virginia City Hill Climb from an SNR participant and some pictures from our successful SNR/Zone 7 Concours My sincere thanks to our tour leaders and our contributors who help enrich our member’s experience. Special thanks to our Concours Committee Chair, Steve Kent, the members of our Concours Committee and club volunteers who did such a wonderful job on this Zone level event! Upcoming events noted inside include: Saturday Breakfasts, our always popular Fall Wine Tour, the SCCA AX and BBQ, Oktoberfest Drive & Dine and a very special Volunteers Appreciation Dinner in November! Fall is coming quickly but we still have a number of exciting events for members, so make sure you check out our calendar section and register for an upcoming event!

With so many club events this summer some events don’t get reported on due to limited space in our printed newsletter. In August we had two very well attended events that need to be mentioned. First, the Summer Wine Social #4, hosted by Deven and Renee’ Hickingbotham was the last in our summer series. In addition to the usual large turnout, we had a great presentation from John Strom on the Strom’s European Adventure. To cap off the evening, Renee surprised Deven with a cake and members singing “Happy Birthday” on a milestone birthday. Really a fun evening for all! Second, even though it’s wasn’t an SNR event, Werks Reunion had a substantial number of SNR participants, attendees and even volunteers. Dan Aynesworth judged one of the larger classes, Ron & denise Lewis had their Guards Red 968 entered in the Concours and George Mihalko joined five other “Club Coupe” members and their cars (the rarest of clubs) for a special display. A beautiful day at a beautiful venue with fantastic cars!
Finally, the annual Officer Ballot will be in the October newsletter and this is the time of year we ask members for nominations for club officers. You can nominate any member(s) you think would be an asset to the management of the club. The Nomination Form is enclosed and is available online at snr-pca.org (click here). Please send in your Nomination Form to the P O Box no later than September 23rd..
I hope to see you at our next event. Until then, be safe!
