By the time our next edition comes out at the end of June, we will be into our summer season. Events of every type are coming and I hope you are clearing your calendar to enjoy all that we have planned. Some of the club metrics I look at each month are: number of new members, member retention and event participation levels. I can tell you that on all of these ratings, Sierra Nevada is doing very well. The most encouraging part for me has been the level of participation at our events by members. So keep coming on out and having fun with us!
In this edition, you’ll get the highlights of the Paint Protection Film Tech Session and Genoa Cowboy Festival/Fast Draw Shoot, as well as a first hand report on the Nevada Open Road Race 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: Saturday Breakfasts, the Mammoth High Alpine Tour, the Nevada City Drive & Dine, Summer Wine Social #2 and the Virginia City Drive & Dine. And those are only the June through mid-July events! Pancake Breakfast with the Commemorative Air Force, Concours Car Prep and Judging School, “Porsches, Portraits and Pizza Drive & Dine to Quincy CA, Summer Wine Social #3 and our SNR/Zone 7 Concours finish out our July events. We really do have an exciting summer planned for you! Check out our upcoming events online at: snr-pca.org
I hope you are getting ready for Treffen Lake Tahoe because registration opens on Tuesday, May 31st! Based on comments we have heard, we expect this event to sell out quickly. The Treffen website (treffen.pca.org) is now up and has some info but more should be coming very soon. My strong advice is if you are interested in attending this event and participating in the social events, dinners, etc., register through the Treffen website as soon as you can. When the number of registered cars hits 250, registration 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. 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. Contact Steve Kent for more details!
I hope to see you at our next event. Until then, be safe!
