Greetings Zone 4 Members,

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone enjoyed the Holiday Season and is ready for another exciting year in PCA.  With the beginning of a new year, and as many regions start putting together their event calendars, why not reach out to the region leadership and offer to assist with an event.  As is true with any organization, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it.

The first Zone 4 event of the year is the always popular Porsche Preview Event at the North American International Auto Show, which will be held from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 17, 2015. We have been working very closely with Porsche Cars North America to organize and plan this event.  For this event, PCNA graciously opens the entire display to us, allowing our Zone 4 members exclusive access before the show opens to the public.
In the 1st year, the ticket allotment was 118; last year it was 130, and this year we were able to obtain 200 tickets. Tickets are $20 per person, which includes your admission to the show as well as a catered continental breakfast.
Pre-registration is required via motorsportreg.com. Registration opens at Noon on January 5, 2015. There is a block of rooms for Zone 4 PCA members at THE HENRY Autograph Collection (Marriott) in Dearborn, MI. The PCA rate is $125.00 per night plus applicable taxes. 
Reservation cutoff date is Monday, January 12th and the room block will be listed as Porsche Club of America. Contact THE HENRY, Autograph Collection, a Marriott Hotel, Fairlane Plaza, 300 Town Center Drive, Dearborn, Michigan 48126-2712 USA,   Phone: Toll Free (888) 709-8081 or (313) 441-2000.,
or use the following link:   Book your group rate: Porsche Club of America
There will be a dinner gathering on Friday Evening at 7:00 PM for all Zone 4 members (Individual Pay); at THE HENRY TRIA Restaurant. Please RSVP to me MSoriano.ZoneRep@gmail.com by Wednesday, January 14th if you plan to join us at dinner so we can confirm the reservations
.

Another event to look forward to is Parade, which will be very close this year in nearby French Lick, IN from June 21-27, 2015.  For details about everything related to Parade including tours, visit the Parade website: http://parade2015.pca.org.  Registration will open at Noon on March 17, 2015.  I am encouraging several regions to plan Parade 101 sessions to help members know what to expect in order to get the most out of their Parade experience.  This year there will be an award given to the region within Zone 4 that has the greatest attendance.  I will announce the winner and present the award during the Zone 4 Party at Parade.

Even though most of us have our cars tucked away for winter, that doesn’t mean you can’t spend time enjoying PCA camaraderie. I look forward to having the opportunity of meeting each and every one of you at these upcoming events. Be sure to check your local region’s website and newsletter, as well as the Zone 4 website http://zone4.pca.org  for the latest details on the many events close to you that are being planned.
