Welcome to the Porsche Club of America ………….Zone 4
Greetings Zone 4 Members,
Over the past few months, I have travelled extensively throughout the zone attending a multitude of outstanding events affording me the opportunity to interact with a number of PCA members. I recently attended Eastern Buckeye Region’s Wine Mill Dinner, where a large group of members met in a private party room at a rustic mill converted into a wine bar for appetizers, dinner, and wine tasting after a scenic drive. I also participated in Northern Ohio Region’s bi-annual Garage Tour. This hugely popular day-long event took us throughout Northeast Ohio to view 6 remarkable garages containing collections of amazing cars and concluded with dinner.
After travelling to MORPCA’s HPDE at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last year to attend meetings, I was able to participate this year. The outstanding 3-day event is still the only one of its kind permitted at IMS, and included 2 receptions, one in a pavilion located near the iconic Pagoda and another in the Hall of Fame Museum. There were around 250 participants from all over the country, with a large group from throughout Zone 4.
I had a wonderful time at Southeast Michigan Region’s Down River BBQ. The food and drinks were abundant and excellently prepared, and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with the attendees. On a beautiful Friday evening, I attended Michiana and Central Indiana regions’ Porsches 2 Warsaw event, which consisted of a car show and a fantastic dinner buffet at a local farm to table restaurant. I have met so many wonderful PCA members during my visits to the regions since becoming Zone 4 Representative, and I look forward to meeting many more as I continue to travel throughout the zone.
With the arrival of autumn, a number of regions have scheduled Fall Color Tours to take advantage of this beautiful time of year. In addition, there are still a few more DEs available for those who want another opportunity to spend some time on the track, and there are always terrific social events to attend.
It is also the time of year when regions are sending out a call for candidates for their upcoming elections of officers and board members. This is a great way to get more involved and help make your region even stronger. There are other ways to become more involved such as chairing a committee, hosting an event, volunteering at an event, writing an article for the region newsletter, or taking pictures at events for the region’s website or Facebook page. Consider sharing your talents, and know that your assistance is not only needed, but is greatly appreciated as well.
Be sure to check your local region’s website and newsletter as well as the Zone 4 website http://zone4pca.org for the latest details on the many events close to you that are being planned. Here are just some of the events taking place this month:
