We have a pretty busy next couple of weeks: as reminder all Appalachian Region activities (and other car-related events) can be found on our website Events page.

  • Upcoming Appalachian Region events include:
  • AR Board monthly meeting this Thursday, 4:00 pm in the Porsche Asheville conference room. Every member is welcome to attend.
  • Treffen meeting with David O’Neal this Saturday, 9:30 am in the Porsche Asheville conference room. Please note that this meeting is for Treffen committee and volunteers only: if you would like to serve on the committee or as a volunteer and wish to attend this meeting, please send me an email at president@aprpca.org stating your desire.
  • AR Drive and Dine, October 8th, meet behind Porsche Asheville Service building at 9 am. This will be a lunch/picnic on tour own: the tour will end in Little Switzerland but we will continue on in small groups (9 cars or less) to the picnic grounds at Craggy Gardens via the Blue Ridge Parkway. The tour route may be found here: Google Map Route. This route features twisty roads but since this is a ‘leaf’ tour, it will not be a very ‘spirited’ drive.
  • AR Member Social, October 12th 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Dynamite Roasting, 3198 US Highway 70 Black Mountain. Dynamite’s parking lot is gravel: for those concerned about their cars, we have permission to park next door at the Sherwin Williams paint store. Please do not park in the spaces bordering the store front/entrance adjacent to the store front as the store will be open.

And as another reminder, our November event (the 5th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm) will be the Sixth annual "Saluting Our Veterans" Open Car and Bike Show, Charles George VA Medical Center, 1100 Tunnel Road, Asheville, NC. The proceeds benefit VA Medical Center patient recreational therapy programs. For details see https://www.facebook.com/salutingourvetscarshow/. The registration form is available at Saluting Our Veterans Car Show Registration. If you plan to attend, please do so soon: the number of cars is limited.

I hope to see you at one of these events soon!
