Word from the President

Craig Kugler, President

Treffen Lake Tahoe is now in the PCA history books and what a sensational event it was! The setting in the Olympic Valley, the fabulous weather, the scenic driving events and the delightful social/dinner activities were fantastic without a doubt. The months of planning, meetings, individual and collective effort and above all execution during the event deserve high praise! Without the contributions of our volunteers and especially our Treffen Committee members, this event could not have been the success that it was! 

For those who like numbers, here are a few worth considering: overall we supported 12 tours, run in 19 groups, totaling 307 cars (and 2 big buses) with 669 attendees. We also parked 80 cars inside Squaw Village and helped with set up, registration and info desk support for over 300 attendees. Impressive!

Beyond the numbers, I know that many of our volunteers were able to hear and enjoy the positive comments from PCA National Treffen Staff, PCA National Executive Council members and, most importantly, from the hundreds of happy Treffen attendees. I'm sure we will be hearing and reading more about all this in the near future on PCA related media. I am proud of our entire club and the many volunteers that contributed their time to this event: a great testament to the SNR family! Ultimately, it was the SNR “team” that made this event a true historic occasion for PCA and SNR. 

In this edition, you’ll get a behind the scenes look at how we prepared for Treffen Lake Tahoe over the last year. You will also see a first-hand report from Activities Chair Deven Hickingbotham on the Silver State Classic Challenge.  My sincere thanks to our contributors and hosts who help enrich our members’ experience. Upcoming events noted inside include: Saturday Breakfasts, the Oktoberfest Drive & Dine, 718 Boxster Launch Party and a very special Volunteers Appreciation Dinner in November!  By the way, our Annual Holiday Party is coming in December to a new day (Friday) and a new venue (Lakeridge Tennis Club) so make sure you check out the Calendar for details – I don’t want you to miss the club’s capstone annual event! The leaves are starting to change color in the mountains so Fall is here, but we still have a number of exciting events for members before year end.  Make sure you check out our calendar section and register for an upcoming event! Check out all our upcoming events online at: snr-pca.org

Finally, the annual Officer Ballot with the slate of candidates for 2017 Officers is included in this newsletter. I encourage you to complete your ballot and send it in to the PO Box by the indicated deadline. The Officer Ballot Form will also be available online (click here) at snr-pca.org.

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