Greetings Zone 4 Members,

I have enjoyed the opportunity to attend many Parades since joining PCA.  They are always event filled weeks with more activities to attend than time, and this year was no different.  The 61st Annual Parade was held in Jay Peak, VT from June 19-25.  Parade officially begins with the Welcome Party on Sunday.  However, I arrived on Friday to attend a number of meetings scheduled through Sunday evening, and had additional meetings throughout the week.  On several mornings, I woke up before 5 a.m. and was in meetings until 6 p.m.

Between all of the meetings, I was able to find time to enjoy some of the scheduled activities.  I even entered one of the many competitive events and brought home a first place trophy.  On Monday, I once again served as a Concours Judge; this year judging the modified class.
Tuesday, we visited a local winery and toured the Ben and Jerry’s Factory in nearby Waterbury, VT.  At the Concours Banquet Tuesday evening, I had the honor of presenting the Zone Rep Award to our own Francie Kish, Parade Facilities Chair and charter member of the Rally Sport Region.  Typically the Zone Reps submit their candidates and much discussion takes place over the course of several months.  At the discretion of the Zone Reps, this award may or may not be given out on an annual basis.  It is one of the most prestigious awards in PCA and is given to the individual who in the opinion of the Zone Reps has made outstanding contributions to the club. 

On Thursday, we participated in the Gimmick Rally, travelling throughout the area in search of the many covered bridges, and stopping to eat lunch at the Trapp Family Lodge.  Thursday evening, we hosted the Zone 4 Party, which was well attended and enjoyed by everyone.  A great deal of thanks goes to Chris Braden of Munk’s Motors for sponsoring the Zone 4 Party as well as once again sponsoring the extremely popular Zone 4 Parade shirts.  We certainly appreciate his generosity and continued support of Zone 4 Events.

Friday, I attended the Tech Academy and enjoyed a sunset dinner cruise on Lake Memphremagog, taking us across the US/Canadian border.  Saturday was another very busy day.  It began with the Volunteer Lunch, during which I was asked by National President Caren Cooper if I would do the honor of leading the Parade of several hundred Porsches from the resort to Newport.  The evening and the week ended with the Victory Banquet.  After all of the awards were announced and distributed, a short video was shown introducing us to Spokane, Washington, the site of next year’s Parade, which will be held
July 9 – 15, 2017.
