Greetings Zone 4 Members,

   Every year, PCA presents a number of National Awards announced during the week of Parade.  These include Enthusiast of the Year, Family of the Year, Region of the Year, and Public Service Awards.  The procedure for nominations for these awards is easy; just create a brief write up (in MS Word) and include 5 photographs and/or newsletter articles.  Specific requirements for each of the awards can be found on the PCA website.  Then, send the submission via email to Awards@pca.org, prior to the December 31, 2017 deadline.  Every region within PCA excels in its own way, and this should be recognized.  Please encourage your Region Officers and Board to prepare a submission.  This year, Central Indiana Region was recognized with a Public Service Honorable Mention Award for their Cruzionsville event.

  I recently attended Treffen Asheville.  This was the third Treffen North America event held in the new format, which replaces Escape.  The 3˝ day event centers around driving, dining, and exploring.  The long weekend began with Registration and a Welcome Reception on Wednesday evening, giving the 455 PCA members from 68 regions a chance to socialize.  The following morning we met bright and early for our driving tour to Lake Lure.  Upon arriving at Lake Lure, we took a boat tour.  In addition to viewing the magnificent scenery, I learned that parts of Dirty Dancing were filmed here.
  Following the boat tour, we enjoyed a buffet lunch at The Veranda Restaurant in the Lake Lure Inn.  After lunch, the driving tour continued as we navigated the Blue Ridge Parkway before returning to the Omni Grove Park Inn.  That evening, we had dinner at 1 of the 5 downtown restaurants chosen by the organizers.  Friday morning, we met at the staging area at 6:45 a.m. for the drive I was looking forward to most: the Tail of the Dragon.  It was over 100 miles from our starting point to the beginning of the Tail, and along the way, we stopped at the Fontana Dam.
  There were 12 Porsches in our group, which arrived at the entrance around 9 a.m.  After 318 turns in 11.1 miles, we stopped at the rest area by the top for a short break.  Some of the passengers and drivers switched places, before we drove the Tail in the opposite direction.  The entire group, close to 50 cars, met for lunch at the Tapoco Lodge, and then returned to Asheville to get ready for the evening’s dinner.  Friday night, we enjoyed Tapas on the Mountainview Terrace of the Grove Park Inn, and were able to view a beautiful sunset.  Saturday, we took another driving tour through some more of North Carolina’s scenic and winding roads to the Tryon Equestrian Center, which will be host to the 2018 World Equestrian Games.  Saturday evening there was a dinner at the Grove Park Inn Country Club.  Of course, no trip to Asheville would be complete without a tour of the Biltmore, so we made sure to visit before returning home.  It truly was a wonderful event.

  This is an important time of year, and I’m reminding you that you can help shape and support your region.  Please consider volunteering and taking part in the upcoming planning meetings. Maybe this is the year that you lead a tour, organize an event, or host a party.

  I hope you will consider travelling to some of the outstanding events being held throughout Zone 4.


Thanks,
Michael
