On June 10th, the Hudson Valley Region had a record turnout of members and their Porsches for the annual Spring Breakout. The event was held at Advanced Automotive of New Windsor.

Shop owner and Hudson Valley Region immediate past president, Tom Florio, relinquished his usual grilling duties as members were treated this year to delicious German Food provided by the Essen Express Food Truck. Tom was put to work, however, by doing a Technical Inspection demonstration. In addition, long time HVR member, Allen Littlefield, conducted an informative auto detailing clinic focusing on using a clay bar and orbital buffer.

Also helping out making the event successful was Giani Florio, Social Chairman Tom Tully, President Mark Maserjian, and Vice President Bruce Coopersmith.

Spring Breakout postponed until June 10!

PLEASE NOTE: Because of pending rainy weather, the Breakout has been postponed until Sunday June 10th!

Even if you have already signed up, please RSVP to Tom and Giani Florio to confirm that you can make the new date (link is below).
