Inaugural “P&C”! by Rick Roll

Thanks to the inspiration and organizing skills of our fellow PCA member Ian McDermott, the inaugural Dover “P&C,” Porsches & Coffee, held on the 24th of February was a huge success despite the damp, foggy, & drizzly weather. Approximately two dozen Porsches, from all three Delaware counties, showed up and since they’re not self-driving as yet, they brought their enthusiastic & gregarious owners along with them. A great time was had by all and the group unanimously voted to make this a monthly event to take place on the first Saturday of each month going forward.

These fun get-togethers will be held at the new Panera Bakery located at 545 N. Dupont Highway, Dover, DE  19901 – 302-672-7079.  There is plenty of parking, excellent coffee & food available, and the first cars normally start arriving around 8:30 AM.

March is right on top of us so our #2 Dover “P&C” will take place on 3/3!


Please plan on joining us and if you have any questions please email Ian at linian@comcast.net or Rick Roll at rroll@comcast.net

The Delaware Porsche Club and Social Networking:
We will be using the Facebook social network in conjunction with our web site to provide the best information experience for our club members.  Facebook will offer club users real-time access to club notices, events, and updates while allowing all members to communicate with each other.

We have created two methods of access:
1.) We have created a general corporate page called "DelawarePCA". This is accessible from our web site. This page does not require a Facebook account and is visible to anyone. Non-Facebook account holders can view, but not comment or post, to this page. Facebook account holders can comment and post. Please click the "Like" button to have information show up in your news feed.

2.) We have also created a Facebook group called "Delaware Porsche Club". A group requires a user with a Facebook account. The advantages of a group are: Users must join the group before they can participate. Members of this group have the ability to be notified optionally by email and or text message of any changes/additions to the page. This would be very useful for event changes or "spur of the moment" activities. This page would only be visible to members of the group.

The WebMaster,chairpersons and members will keep the pages up-to-date with official info, and users are encouraged to add any information that would be of interest to our membership. Photos, ride reviews, Porsche news, etc. would be appreciated.

Remember "Delawarepca" for Facebook and non Facebook members. For Facebook users search for "Delaware Porsche Club" our Ride-N-Dine, and ask to join.

President's Message
July 2018 from Bob Farris:

Hello everyone,
the Delaware PCA region had a busy month in June. On Saturday June 2nd there was the regular first Saturday of the month get-together at Panera Bakery in Dover,DE. Our monthly membership meeting for June was moved to New Castle,DE to a restoration facility owned by Delaware PCA member Elly Nadot. After starting out a little cloudy earlier in the day, the weather cooperated and we had a good evening to check out his latest creation, a restored/customized 1978 Porsche 911 SC. We had over 100 people enjoying barbecue and Mexican food, plus beer, wine and good conversation. A brief description of the evening was submitted along with a few photos to Panorama, so we might get some press in the Porsche club magazine.
For planning purposes our July membership meeting will be held at Skipjacks Dining; 401 Louviers Dr, Newark, DE on Wednesday July 11th at 6pm.
Also, please plan on joining us at Shaefer's Canal House for our monthly membership meeting on Wednesday August 8th at 6pm. This venue is always popular, so try to get there early to take advantage of the special parking provided. For those of you going to Porsche Parade at Lake of the Ozarks we definitely understand why you might not be joining us for seafood, but we know you'll have an enjoyable time there.
Oh yeah, one additional date to save is Sunday September 16th, for our regions picnic to be held in Elkmore, MD close to Elkton. There will be more details forthcoming on this. And as long as we're talking about picnics, Jeff Walton president of PA's Riesentoter region has extended an invitation to our region to join them at their picnic on Saturday July 14th at the Valley Forge Vol. Fire Co. Grove, Phoenixville,PA. The cost is $15.00, with children under 12 free. Bring chairs or blankets because after sunset they'll be showing that great Porsche classic, "Smokey and The Bandit" starring Burt Reynolds and Jackie Gleason.
On a more serious note I'd like to make everyone aware that one of our former presidents of the Delaware Region, Bob Bloser, had been recovering from some medical issues. His long time partner Rena informed us that Bob has recently been treated for a brain tumor. Bob's enthusiasm and leadership of the club set a high bar for everyone who followed. We all send our prayers and best wishes to Bob and Rena as he progresses with his rehab and look forward to having him back at our meetings again soon. That's everything for now, drive safe, have a good Fourth of July, Bob.

Call for volunteers!
