We are half way through the year and I hope you have enjoyed the fun activities we’ve had so far. Some
of the highlights have been our tours to Three Rivers, Zumwalt Meadows, and Mammoth. We had a
good mix of cars and fun people at all of these events. The 70 th Anniversary run, held by Porsche Fresno,
was extremely well attended. We had over 50 cars on the run, along with many more that participated
in the Kars and Koffee at the dealership. The dealership did a great job in hosting this event. The food
was great and the raffle was a lot of fun at the end.
The dealership has really cranked it up this year in trying to host joint events with our club. With their
wide selection of impressive cars, many of our club members have begun buying from them. It’s great to
have a full service dealership that really wants to work with us and provide us some exciting options on
cars. Stay tuned for the dealership’s cars and barbecue event on July 14 th .
Our dinners have also been very well attended this year. We are now having the effect of running out of
locations that can handle our group size. If anyone has suggestions for places that can handle 35 plus
people, please let Cindy know. We are always looking for new fresh ideas for our dinners.
We have some more exciting upcoming events. In July, we have a wine tour being led by Obie on July
21 st . Please RSVP by July 14 th . Our dinner in July is at Sakura Chaya. The cut off date for making a
reservation with Cindy is July 6 th . Remember, if you send her an email and don’t get a response, then she
probably didn’t get your email.
Our membership continues to grow. Please welcome the new members when you see them at our next
Koffie and Kars. BTW, we have had great turn out at our new location for Koffie and Kars, which are now
set for the first Saturday of each month at our new location at the intersection of Fort Washington and
Friant roads. We always have enough room to park and its very easy to walk around and look at the cars
and have great conversation.
Please mark your calendar, that this years’ Octoberfest will be held back at Dave and Tami’s place. The
date is September 15 th . We will be asking for volunteers to help set it up as we get closer to the date.
We are looking to get more participation in writing articles for our Zeitung from our members. I would
like to ask for letters on any of these three topics. You can include photos also if you wish. We will post
them in the future Zeitungs.
Question: What has been one of your most memorable drives anywhere in your Porsche.
Question: Why did you buy your first Porsche and how has the experience been.
Question: What is the most enjoyable thing about owning a Porsche.
Thanks for all your participation, so far this year! Look forward to many more fun times for our club
members this year!
