Spring PCA Update

I hope you are doing well and ready to return to the land of the living from COVID-19 Winter hibernation. This month we have a smorgasbord of activities to offer in the coming weeks. Something for every Porsche owner and some, like me, will like it all!

Spring is right around the corner and our first Drive & Dine, the Sassafras Mountain Sunset Drive and Picnic, is scheduled on the first day of Spring, March 20th. Registration opened on February 15th and in spite of our adding a third run group, we still have people on the Wait List. If your plans have changed, please contact Jim Moore to let him know you won't be able to make the event. This is one I am really looking forward to.

We get it that many of you are bored right now and we are doing our best to bring new PCA events to the rescue. In addition to the Sassafras Picnic this month, we have a new social event starting tomorrow morning - The App Cafe. Our 2021 Member survey indicated an interest in holding Cars & Coffee Events and we are happy to add this to our calendar. This will be a "Porsches & Coffee" Event, where members can meet old and new friends to share our common interest. Our first App Cafe will be held March 6th from 9:00 to 10:30 AM at Panera Bread, 40 Peaks Center Lane, Asheville (across from the Asheville Mall). No registration required. Porsche vehicles only please.

We also have not forgotten our winter Tech Sessions that were postponed from January and February. Please register for one or both April Tech Sessions on the 15th of March: On April 3rd we will be at Wheelhouse Rim Repair in North Greenville, SC. See the details and register here.

A second Tech Session will be held on April 17th at Asheville Auto Armor in Arden, NC. See more details and register here.We have two additional events that will open for Registration on March 15th at Noon: The first is the Old Friends & New Friends Drive & Dine to be held on April 10th. Details and Registration are available here. Please be sure to register as early as possible to ensure your spot.

The second Event is the Roan Mountain Drive & Dine / Abingdon Overnight to be held on June 3rd. We are opening this registration early to allow members to book their hotel reservations before April 15th, when our Room Block will be released by the hotel, the Country Inn & Suites in Abingdon, VA. We have a one-day or a two-day option for this event. Details and registration are available here: Please join our MANNA FoodBank workgroup to help the many WNC people with an increased need this year. The next 2-hour work session will be on the first Tuesday of April. Details can be found here:. We're looking forward to seeing you at one or more of the above Events. Please join us to celebrate Spring 2021. It's been a particularly long winter and we all certainly deserve to celebrate its conclusion!

My best,

Don Therien, President
