Besides the Board meeting coming up on Thursday (Porsche Asheville conference room at 4pm), I am really looking forward to Luft, Wasser & Brevard coming up this Saturday!

Jim Moore has out-done himself with 100 cars registered (we've out-grown our allotted parking area but we'll make do) and organized group drives coming from Asheville, Hendersonville, Greenville, Waynesville and Hickory. For those registered, the meet point is Brevard Elementary School at 10:30am for a safety briefing and a police escort into downtown Brevard. If you are not registered and would like to participate, come on down to Brevard and join us! (you'll have to find your own parking outside the display area.) More information may be found here.

With the success of our last 'Breakfast Ramble', we are going to do it again this month with the ‘The Heart of The Blue Ridge’ breakfast ramble. The chosen destination is the Randevu, 18 Chestnut Square Hwy 64 in Cashiers on May 26th. Plan to arrive by 9:15am. Registration is required to reserve enough room for our group: please click this link 'The Heart of The Blue Ridge’ to register. The event is no charge/buy your own breakfast.

Registration is open for the 2018 Appalachian Adventure to be held August 17-19 at the Ridges Resort at Lake Chatuge on Club We have increased the room block and rooms are still available: call the Resort and mention ‘Porsche club’ to get our special room rate. If you already reserved a room and have not registered for the event itself, please do so at your earliest convenience. For more information/questions, contact Don Therien, special event chair, at

Oh, ...and did I mention our monthly social at the Thirsty Monk South? Join us on Wednesday, May 9th, from 5 to 7pm for a 'cock and bull' session with your AR buddies. As usual, look for white AR name badges. Haven't got a name badge? AR badges can be ordered through this Goodie Store link.

Speaking of the Goodie Store, the AR Board has approved a 10% member discount on apparel ordered through the Goodie Store again this year. The discount runs in advance of Appalachian Adventure: from June 1st to July 15th.
