As our main November Saturday event, the 9th Annual ‘Saluting Our Veterans’ Open Car and Bike Show is coming up on Saturday, 2 November. 

Proceeds from the show benefit the VA Voluntary Services to the benefit of VA veterans’ programs. The Appalachian Region has had an awesome presence for many years now: please plan to attend, whether or not you register/display you Porsche (or other unique vehicle). Registration is required: please visit VA Car Show to download/print a registration form.  The cost is $15/car; additional donations are appreciated. The Appalachian Region contributes the $250 PCA Hospitality Park subsidy to this worthy cause. If you have registered/when you register, please send me an email to VA Car Show Notification; I need to give VA organizers a car count prior to the event.

Because the BOD takes its fiducial responsibility to our Region seriously, an Event Participant Policy has been adopted. Because of previous event 'guest' problems, the policy applies to Region/PCA events where registration and an accompanying fee are required and unregistered/unpaid guests wish to participate.  The policy outlines participation allowance, requirements and remediation. The complete policy may be reviewed in whole on our website under 'Admin', 'Members Only' (requires logon ID/password), 'Region Procedures', 'Event Participant Policy'.

I urge you to come out to the VA Car Show, even if you do not register your Porsche: it is for a most worthy cause of providing needed support of our veterans. Inspirational Vet video (and the simple things we take too often for granted): What Happened to Me?
