I would like to wish everyone a safe, prosperous and happy 2016. I am looking forward to serving you for the next two years as your president and I am particularly excited about our upcoming Appalachian Adventure, 12-14 August 2016, and Treffen 2017- Asheville, 20-24 September 2017.

Claudia and I are planning a Porsche trip to Treffen 2017- Austin, TX in March 2017 as well as other Porsche events across our nation (Texas Hill Country Rallye and 912 Rendezvous to name two).

For upcoming events and for staying connected with 'everything else' in the Appalachian Region - PCA, please visit our website. We have several tech sessions lined up for the next three meeting (usually held on the first Saturday on each month):

  • 'Clear Bra' tech session- Porsche Asheville/Harmony Motors: 9 January, 10 a.m.
  • 'Tire Tech' session - Jan Davis Tire Store: 6 February, 10 a.m.
  • Tech session with Pete Martin - Stuttgart Motorwerks: 5 March. 10 a.m.

I would also encourage you to 'hang with your Porsche buddies' at Cars and Coffee- Asheville, held the third Saturday of each month at 1000 Ridgewood Blvd, Asheville from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m., possibly with an impromptu drive afterwards.

Its the marque that has brought us together, but it is the people that make us friends and a club: I welcome any comments, questions, suggestions and/or complaints in order to improve our club; feel free to contact me at wpgraham912@charter.net or call me at 828-669-7730 during normal work/evening hours.

Thank you for your support of our club! Happy new year!!
