As a quick update, we have several events coming up.

  • The Treffen Asheville (TA) Committee is meeting at 4:00 pm in the Porsche Asheville conference room this Thursday, October 27th. If you would like to serve on the TA committee, you are invited to attend.
  • The Appalachian Region Monthly Board meeting will be held at 4:00 pm in the Porsche Asheville conference room next Thursday, November 3rd.
  • Our November club event is the sixth annual "Saluting Our Veterans" Open Car and Bike Show to be held at the Charles George VA Medical Center, 1100 Tunnel Road, Asheville, NC. The proceeds benefit VA Medical Center patient recreational therapy programs. You may preregister using the mail-in form found here or you may register at the show.
  • Our November social event will be held at the Thirsty Monk, 51 N. Merrimon Ave #113, Woodfin on November 9th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

We are still in need of input for Treffen Asheville: if you have a favorite WNC destination or a road that your Porsche loves, please let me know. Our TA drives need to be finalized by the end of March. We are also looking for parking lots in and around the Asheville area for up to 100-150 cars that have unrestricted access to a route ‘out of town’ from which a drive may start.

We now have openings for the Events, Membership and Marketing/Communications chairs. If you would like to serve your Region, we would like to hear from you. And while talking ‘service’, next year we would like to have our monthly events proposed by our membership: if you have an idea about an event, a route or a destination, please let me know: right now, the 2017 schedule is wide open!!

Hoping to see you at an AR event soon…
