July and August APR Events

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend with family and friends.  Beautiful driving, cook-out and fireworks weather was the order of the day.  It really doesn't get much better for a NC Holiday weekend, especially in a Porsche!

We had a great turnout and beautiful weather for our New Member Picnic on June 26th.  The Concours had 60+ Porsches on the grassy slope facing the pavilion at the Ramble.  Quite a view to enjoy a picnic dinner with good food and friends.

July and August will continue our string of busy APR activity months with four new APR Events available for Registration on July 15th:  All are available on the APR Website on the Scheduled Events Page under the Calendar button.

First up is a Tech Session on Wheel and Paintless Dent Repairs on July 24th.  We'll visit an Arden, NC specialty shop to learn the secrets.

Next is the Craggy Gardens Drive, Hike and Picnic on August 10th.  The Drive will be mostly on the Blue Ridge Parkway with an optional 30 minute Hike.

There will be another Breakfast Ramble on August 21st to the Dixie Diner in Hendersonville.  More details will be posted soon on the Website.

The last new registration opportunity is for this Year's Appalachian Adventure Weekend on September 9-12th.  This year's Blowing Rock location will provide an opportunity to meet old and new friends in a beautiful Resort Town in the NC Mountains.

If you have not yet registered for the APR Five Year Anniversary Party on August 12th, there are still seats available through July 31st.  For those with COVID concerns, we have arranged for the buffet to be served by the Asheville Country Club Staff.  Sign up now before the sellout!

Additionally there will be the Wednesday Brewery Social on July 14th at Oscar Blues in Brevard and APR Volunteers will work at the MANNA FoodBank on August 3rd.  I look forward to seeing you at one or more of these APR Events!

My best,

Don Therien, APR President
