Three announcements that I wanted to make you aware of prior to my first of the month Newsletter. You'll also see a list of February events so you can start planning what events you want to attend next month.

1. The Breakfast Ramble at Joey's Pancake House occurs Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. at Joey's Pancake House on Soco Road in Maggie Valley.

Snow is not scheduled until late afternoon, so join us for breakfast. Say you are with the Porsche Club and watch for the Appalachian Region name badges; we should all be seated in the same area. Details are available on the APR web site.

2. April 19, 2022 Social Mixer at the Wedge is Canceled

3. Porsche Parade Registration Opens February 2, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. EST

Phase one for Porsche Parade Registration occurs on February 2, 2022 so I wanted to be sure everyone is aware of this to think about it in time to register. Parade and Hotel registration usually sells out quickly so if you want to attend be sure to be ready to jump online at 12:00 p.m. February 2, 2022.

Here are the latest details from Parade headquarters:

PCA Porsche Parade 2022 is June 12-18 at the Kalahari Resort in Pennsylvania. Phase 1 Registration (Registration Fee and Rooms Only) Opens February 2 12 pm. EST. National has created a quick guide to help you through the process and you can access it here.

Remember this is just for Parade registration and hotel room reservation. Banquets and event registration is in Phase 2 and that registration begins on April 6 12:00 pm. EST.
