Welcome to the Porsche Club of America ………….Zone 4
Greetings Zone 4 Members,
The summer months offer Zone 4 members a variety of opportunities for enjoying their cars as well as fellowship and camaraderie.
I was recently able to attend a unique event that fabulously combined both of these aspects and made for a wonderful day. The event was Southeast Michigan Region’s Progressive Dinner. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, a large group of us met at a member’s lakeside home for appetizers.
After a safety meeting, we were given directions to the next stop. We took a 45 minute drive through some winding twisty roads before arriving at the 2nd stop where our entrée was being served. We all enjoyed the delicious catered food along with lively conversation. Many members sat outside by the pool, while others strolled through the beautifully manicured gardens.
After another meeting, we were given directions to the next stop where dessert was being served. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner’s 911 turbo in graphite blue metallic, his orange GT3 RS and his Guards Red GT4, plus another exotic car lining the driveway. It was a fantastic evening, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with a wonderful group of people.
In addition to driving tours and DEs, many regions host autocross events. Michiana, Eastern Buckeye, and Mid Ohio Regions host autocross events nearly every month through September or October. Autocross is a great way to test and sharpen your driving skills for a very nominal fee, and it gives you a wonderful opportunity for a day socializing with other PCA members.
There are also a number of car show events coming up including the Red Barn Spectacular at the Gilmore Auto Museum, Red Brick Reunion in Oxford, Carmel Artomobilia, and Rallye Porsche Milford in Southern OH.
As we continue to enjoy our very busy driving season, there are a number of wonderful events being offered throughout the zone. As region calendars firm up and events continue to be added, please remember to check your inboxes, region’s newsletter and website for the most up to date information about events available to you. Please continue to check the master calendar on the events page, as well as your local region’s website and newsletter for the latest details on the many events close to you that are being planned. Also, consider attending other regions’ events listed below.
