May 2017 President's Message

        From Sam Dali




Well it appears the driving season is upon us. I can’t believe the temperature reached 89 degrees, at Rehoboth Beach, DE, during the last weekend of April. It also looks like there are lots of events being planned by your Club. We had a very good turnout at our April Club Night, at Skipjacks, and will be returning there for our May meeting (see below). Our survey on the interest to attend an overnight outing was very positive. Over 65% of those surveyed indicated they would be interested in attending an overnight trip with the Club. The planning for this trip continues. Be sure to save the important dates below for some great events to look forward to and attend.

Our next Club Night, Wednesday, May 10, at Skipjack Dinning, located at The Shoppes at Louviers, 401 Louviers Drive, Newark, DE 19711. Our meeting will begin at 6:00pm with dinner orders taken after 6:15pm. Thank you to George Pearson, we will have a featured speaker, Don Miliano, talking about automobile photography (see below). Due to the size of the meeting room, please register at radioroamer@gmail.com if you plan to attend. The restaurant needs a count for the table setup. We hope to have a large group learning how to better photograph one of their most favorite and admired possessions.

The title of Don Miliano’s talk is "Light Camera Action, People, Places and Things" - He will discuss what kind of light is most flattering for automotive shots. He'll show examples of cars shot in good and bad light. He will also discuss the best way to position the car for the most flattering results - this will include camera selection, lenses, filters and tripods. He will demonstrate "enhancers" such as filters, reflectors and electronic flash. He will also explain how to use lenses and flash to take better people pictures. Finally, he’ll explain how to take better action shots at the track or autocross. Again, best camera and lens selections will be revealed with examples. 

(Bio for Don Miliano)- A PCA member since 1976, a regular contributor to Excellence Magazine since 1988. In addition, his photos and writing have been published in magazines such as AutoWeek, Cavallino, Prancing Horse, Forza, Bimmer, Ferrari Market Letter, New York Times, Porsche Panorama, Garage Style Magazine, Lime Rock Park No Name Magazine, Radnor Hunt Concours Program and several automotive books.

Blue Rocks Game June 9th REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN – Event Leader, George Pearson
Baseball season is coming up and the action will be at Frawley Stadium with the Wilmington Blue Rocks celebrating their 25th season.

Buies Creek Astros are the Houston Astros' newly formed Class A Advanced affiliate. This will be our big day; it's when we'll have a postgame Porsche parade around the outfield at Frawley Stadium, then we'll park in the infield and watch the Friday night fireworks light off. There will be food, but not just, peanuts, popcorn crackerjacks. The Blue Rocks will be providing hot dogs, gourmet hamburgers, dynamite grilled chicken, as well as veggie hot dogs and burgers.

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.
