Registration is now OPEN for our July 29, 2013 event at LRP as well as our Aug 28-29, 2013 Driving Into Fall DE at WGI.
As always our events at Lime Rock are not shared with the Lime Rock Club.
Our Driving Into Fall event at Watkins Glen will offer a unique format with only two run groups (assigned at registration time) and sessions that vary in duration. There will be something for everyone by offering both Driver's School and Open Track with lots of track time for both. We'll be inviting BMW club drivers and others, so there will be opportunity to make new friends and drive with makes other than Porsche. Those who have run with our Region before know that we offer a relaxed, low key event. Since this is a new event for us, we expect to have 50-60 drivers so we estimate the run groups will be empty with lots of passing opportunities.

From PCA National:
"For several years now the Escape has been one of the most sought after and exciting events on the PCA calendar. Consisting primarily of tours and social events, this non-competitive weekend is the perfect relaxing PCA holiday. Held each year in a different area of the country, this weekend is rich with regional flavor and draws a national audience that enjoys a long weekend of spending time with their Porsche cars, Porsche friends and participating in Porsche activities.
Escape to Los Angeles is the theme for 2013; and registration will be opening soon, on July 15."
We are trying to plan a trip to the Yuengling Brewery in Pottsville, PA, and right now we have a tentative date of September 7, 2013. If we hear that more than 15 people are interested, we will confirm the date with the brewery. More details about the planned trip are available on our RSVP page:
Please let us know as soon as possible if you're interested so we can firm up plans. Thanks!
I need to have feedback for a headcount of those interested in a visit to the Storm King Art Center on Sunday the 30th of June. After the tour we will drive to the new Cafe at Orange County Choppers which has a nice reasonably priced menu and will hold a group of tables for us. Pat & I visited on Sat. and were very pleased with the venue.
Cost of the tour is $12 for adult, $10 for seniors and $8 for students with i.d. card. If we get enough people we will be assigned a docent to conduct the tour. There are also open trollies that will take us from area to area as the center covers many acres. This is the place you can see from the thruway below Newburgh. Since this is all outdoors we will call it off if it is raining.
Please use our events page RSVP at http://hvpca.clubstore.us.com/index.php?cPath=500000. As the date is not that far off I suggest you RSVP as soon as possible if you are interested.
What a great day after the threat of rain from the storm. Only 16 of us showed up for this great tour. We were greeted with a sign with our new logo on it made by Kim the great assistant that the Gish family has working for them. We then had a choice of a Mimosa, coffee, bagels and other finger snacks provided as a complimentary breakfast, thank you Dr. Jack & Alice. After a introduction Dr. Jack and his lovely and gracious wife, Alice gave us a tour of most of the 35 car collection. The recent prize winner was not out of the trailer yet. Great people and what a great facility. There will be another tour this fall so stay tuned and make plans to visit this great 'museum'. What a timely way to celebrate 50 years of the 911. More pics to follow.
