As we move into the fall season, we are planning to ramp up our events.
The summer had fun events such as our dinners, tours and cars and coffee’s.
We have had great dinners at Sakura Chaya, Sequoia Brewery and Lime Lite. We are always looking for new venues that can hold our ever increasing group.
We had our first autocross of the fall, with a large attendance. We had a good mix of Porsche’s, and other cars. Everyone had a great time and were able to have a lot of runs. It was a perfect opportunity for everyone to learn how their cars handle. Hope to see more people show up for our October event.
Our Octoberfest is just a couple of weeks away. The weather should be perfect and hoping to see a big turnout this year. We will have the same combination of regular prizes and large prizes. Looking for donations of larger prizes in the $100+ dollar range.
Our Cars and Coffee continues to grow. Our numbers are consistently over 50 cars. We have an excellent spot where we can freely walk around and enjoy the companionship and cars. We have plenty of room to grow our event.
PCA had a very large turnout for the events with Monterey Car week and Rennsport. We are fortunate to live close enough to Monterey to visit these fun events. Visiting the coast and being able to participate in these events are quite an experience.
We have had tours to Pismo beach, along with our equinox tour up to Courtright Lake. Articles are included in this edition. The tours always turn out to be enjoyable. It’s always fun to take tours with fellow members and experience the wonderful roads and scenic views that California has to offer. Our upcoming tours include the Tarantula Run on October 26th and our wine tour on November 16th. Keep tuned in, for more information on these tours.
Our next events include Cars and Coffee on the 5th of October and the Fresno Porsche launch of the 992 the same day. The launch begins at 5pm. Our members will be providing cars for this event.
On October 12th is both our autocross and Octoberfest. Hope to see you at both events.
Coming up on November 25th is the Porsche DE day at Laguna Seca. Reservations open soon, so sign up before it fills up. Fresno Porsche is hosting it with the Diablo Club. The runs are separated between beginners, intermediate and advanced.
Elections are coming up. We will have a new openings, as Kevin Davis will be stepping down from the board, due to his expanding family obligations. He has been a very active board member and will still be active with the club. When you see Kevin, please thank him for all the support he has given the club.
John Paul and Russ Weber have been volunteering for many events and will be part of the board this coming year. If anyone else is interested in any of the positions, or wants to vote for someone other than those listed in the ballots, you can do write in votes, during the election.
Membership growth has been spectacular this year. I would like to thank Fresno Porsche and the leadership there for promoting our club. We have developed a good relationship and will continue to help bring visibility to the offerings of the dealership. Looking to promote more locally bought Porsches.
Look forward to seeing you at one of our many upcoming events this fall.
