Appalachian Adventure 2019On August 15 to 18 we returned to The Ridges at Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee, GA for our fourth annual Appalachian Adventure.

PicnicOn a rainy June 22, the Appalachian welcomed 64 new members who had joined in the previous twelve months. This growth has resulted in the Region's membership exceeding 400 for the first time.

We met on August 14 at the Triskelion Brewery in Hendersonville.

Linda Goodman, Editor of the From the Regions column in Panorama, was our guest at our May 25th Drive, Hike & Dine on the Blue Ridge Parkway. To thank us, she has made a donation to the Manna Foodbank, an Appalachian region charity partner,

In accordance with the bylaws of the Appalachian Region, an officer nomination committee has been formed for the purpose of putting forth a slate of AR members in good standing to elect a new Board of Directors (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer) to serve a two-year term starting 1 January 2020.

With respect to the New Member Social/Annual Picnic registration, there was a website software bug that caused the registration link to appear closed.  The bug is now fixed. 

Congrats to not only those below, but to all the Zone 3 folk in attendance who made Parade such a cool event. Next year: Palm Springs California!

July SocialAbout a dozen Appalachian members met at the Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard on a rainy afternoon.

Luft WasserA mile of Porsches stretched the roads of Brevard for the second annual Luft Wasser Porsche celebration that featured mountain drives, a Parade of Porsches into town and a Main Street display while members enjoyed eating, talking and shopping.

The drive was billed as driving the Nantahala Gorge, but the highlight was actually driving the 35-mile long Wayah Road.

If you missed Luft Wasser - A Porsche Celebration on Saturday, you missed a great event!! 

Hello PCA Members in Zone 3! I hope your summer is off to a great start and you are enjoying your Porsche in the many events that PCA has on offer across the Zone.

SocialWe met in Hendersonville on the deck at Guidon Brewing, where the warm spring weather sent folks scurring back to their cars for hats and sun glasses.

July 6th already...  Here's to hoping everyone had a safe and joyous July 4th celebration!
