Greetings PCA Zone 4 Members,

With the arrival of autumn upon us, it is a great time to look back and reflect upon all of the exciting activities that took place within Zone 4 during a busy and fun-filled summer. In a scenic park on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I attended Southeast Michigan Region's annual Family Picnic and Concours; a tradition that is 38 years old. Over 100 members dined upon an impressive selection of appetizers, side dishes and at least 4 different entrees. A number of trophies were awarded to the nice variety of cars in attendance.

I travelled to Northern Ohio Region's 3rd Annual Rib Burn Off and Social, where approximately 150 members were treated to a wide variety of ribs and other types of barbecue. In addition they served fresh cut fries and had a bar with frozen margaritas and beer on tap. I also joined Maumee Valley Region members for their annual Sunday Champagne Brunch at Mon Ami Winery on beautiful Catawba Island; a long standing tradition, and one of the region's most popular events. Members were able to enjoy delicious food and could spend the afternoon listening to live music or visiting some of the other attractions that Lake Erie has to offer.

Recently, I was given the opportunity to spend the day driving a nice selection of brand new cars that had just been shipped over from Germany for this event. The first part of the day was spent navigating a 40 acre autocross course in the Panamera GTS and Macan Turbo. The remainder of the day we were able to run the new Boxster GTS, Cayman GTS, and Targa 4S on a test track. I'm sure we would all agree that this was an outstanding way to spend the day, and the expert instruction provided by the Porsche Driving School was an added bonus.

As we look ahead to events being offered this month, there are some great opportunities to enjoy some more time behind the wheel before the driving season concludes and it is time to store your car for the winter. A number of regions have beautiful color tours scheduled as well as a rally and a DE. Make sure to get out and take advantage of these opportunities. The regions have been working very hard to promote their events throughout the zone, and it has been extremely rewarding to see this zone continue to grow as members from every region are offered a variety of events to attend each month. Please remember to check your region's newsletters, websites, and e-mails as well as the Zone 4 website for the most up to date list of events available to you.

Please consider attending other regions' events. See the Event Calendar below.

I look forward to having the opportunity of meeting each and every one of you at these upcoming events. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at: MSoriano.ZoneRep@gmail.com

Thanks,
Michael
