Temps are rising and the ground is drying out across Zone 3. Activity will be ramping up so let's hi-light some important information.
Wilderness Trail Wins the National Membership contest for Factored Growth at over 24%!! Peachstate comes in 2nd for Actual Growth.! In fact, Zone 3 led by a wide margin all 14 Zones for Primary Member Net Growth at 4.8%. PCA as a whole had net Primary Member Growth of over 1%. Great results in any year but phenomenal for 2020 and our Zone!
Parade registration opened and on site accommodations are already waitlisted. My advice to members who were not able to secure PCA housing;
Make sure you are on the Conference Direct waitlist. If you did not get on a waitlist when you initially requested a room refer to the Waitlist Hotel on porscheparade.org
Patience. Parade is 5 months out and much will change.
As of now, Zone 3 has 112 Primary Members signed up for Parade which is about 40 higher than the 2019 Boca Parade. If you are registered, be on the lookout for an email from me as we draw closer to the event for information of our Zone Gathering prior to the Welcome Banquet. It will be your opportunity to see who from Zone 3 is attending early and plan your week with those whom you would like to know better.

2021 Events on the Zone 3 Calendar
The Zone 3 calendar is focused on the major events that might attract members from other regions and is not designed to take the place of your Region's website calendar. In fact, the Region websites will be even more critical to check for event information in 2021 as local ordinances will probably change throughout the year and may alter the nature of events or the ability for your Region to execute an event.
You can use the Zone 3 calendar for planning of the major events you might want to attend in 2021. Remember, not all events have been confirmed so check the calendar often during the year. Also, the events shown may be rescheduled or cancelled so confirming with the host Region before the event is a good plan.
