I hope you are enjoying the gorgeous early Fall weather that we are experiencing. Luft Wasser Saturday was a super example with early fog clearing to reveal a beautiful day.

Luft Wasser returned in 2021 with a fall appearance after a COVID break in 2020. 176 Porsches registered for participation representing seven states and eleven PCA regions.

Hey Zone 3 PCA Members! We have exceeded our member net growth number we set for all of 2020. We were just over 400 net new members in all of 2020 and in August of this year we stood at 497 net new primary members!

Our Appalachian PCA Region turned out in force at the British Car Club Autumn in the Mountains annual car show to support Meals on Wheels.

Despite some scattered fog on the way there, we enjoyed a sunny morning at our event at the Asheville Outlet Mall.

We met at the Eluvian Brewing Company in Weaverville on a warm evening with some occasional rain. As their patio is roofed, we all stayed dry.

Heart O' Dixie 60th Anniversary Celebration

Hey members of Zone 3, its not just the weather, membership is HOT and as of July we are over 9200 Primary Members! We are waaaay ahead of our growth rate for 2020 and that was a good year at least member growth-wise!

22 Members of the Appalachian Region came together at the Dixie Diner in Laurel Park (Hendersonville) on Saturday, August 21, 2021.

We held our August mixer at the Burning Blush Brewery on Route 280 in Mills River with about a dozen Appalachian members.

Appalachian Region of the Porsche Club of America finally celebrated the five-year Anniversary of its founding a year late after a COVID delay, but what a celebration it was.

Two groups participated; both met at the Blue Ridged Parkway Visitors Center and toured the Parkway to the Craggy Gardens Picnic Area.

July was a busy month for our Region. A sold out Dine & Drive to the Peach Farm on the 1st, Fourth of July celebrations with family and friends, the Breakfast Ramble to Pig & Grits and a very well attended Tech Session at Wheel and Paintless Dent Repair in Arden provided something for everyone.
