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

President's Message
February 2018 from Bob Farris

Hello everyone,

As we enter the month of February we eagerly look forward to some of the clubs upcoming events. Over the weekend of the 17th and 18th of February, PCA National will once again be holding "Tech Tactics East" in Easton, PA.  These technical seminars about Porsches always sell out quickly and have been well attended in the past. Information was sent out to the membership on January 17th, but in case you missed that you might still have an opportunity to reserve a seat on Motorsportreg.com . 

Our regular monthly meeting will be Wednesday February 21st at the Mid Atlantic Grand Prix indoor go kart track in New Castle. We will meet at 6pm, have a brief meeting, adjourn,  and then hit the track. We'll need an approximate headcount so we can order pizza and soft drinks, so please be sure to let the club secretary know if you plan on attending. Mid Atlantic Grand Prix is located; 4060 N Dupont Hwy, New Castle, DE 19720 . If you travel on Rte 13 North from New Castle the entrance is on the right, across the road from Loews just prior to the entrance to 495 N. This karting event is not a PCA/region sponsored event and PCA liability insurance will not be in effect. We look forward to seeing everyone that can come out. 

I'd like to relay some information from our friends at GotShade who spoke to us at our January meeting. They have special pricing for our club. Most Exoshield windshield film installations range between $300-$400 depending on size and complexity. For most Porsches, paint protection on the front bumper, with a partial kit on the hood, fenders, and mirrors is $850. The price for a Porsche full hood, full fenders, mirrors and front bumper  paint protection is $1600 . And finally, for club family and friends and non-Porsche autos there is a $225 discount on the front bumper, hood, fender, and mirror kit if purchased together. For more information contact Victoria at GotShade, @ 302-832-8468 .

For those of you still thinking about the New York Auto Show trip it appears you waited too long. As I write this we have no seats remaining out of our total of 56. Club members responded quite well, and we are looking forward to a fun trip. Thanks are due to a couple of our members who helped make this trip happen. Mark Weining set up the MotorSports Reg registration, and Jay Acosta communicated with Delaware Express and the folks in New York regarding our ticket discount; thanks gentlemen for your efforts. For people wondering how we could charge such a reasonable fee for the trip we must thank our friends at Piazza-Porsche Delaware. They have been good friends of the Delaware PCA in the past, and we appreciate their continued support of our club. The Porsche Delaware GM, Sean Johnson, who made this possible will be traveling with us on the New York trip.

Finally, our March 14th monthly membership meeting will be held at Skipjacks Dining in Newark,DE. Our  speaker that evening will be Tom Holmes, our Chief Driving Instructor. We hope to see you there; drive safe, Bob.

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.

"GOTSHADE" From Les Clarke:

As you know, GotShade presented their product portfolio to the attendees at our Jan 10 Club meeting.  Following the meeting, they have offered a Special Porsche Pricing Discount for PCA Delaware members. 

Porsche PCA Delaware Members
Just wanted to follow up & extend a thank-you to you & your club for allowing Ron & I an opportunity to present our products to you. Even though I was quite nervous I had a great time talking with all your members, discussing products & getting feedback from them. Please let me know if any of them have questions or need quotes. 

Ron & I also wanted to give your club & it’s friends & family Porsche special pricing for this new ExoShield film installation. Most windshields will cost between $300 & $400 depending on size & complexity, where as the normal cost should be $500 - $600. We also want to offer special pricing for paint protection film installation. For just about any Porsche we want to offer a base price of $850 for paint protection to be installed on the front bumper & a partial kit on the hood, fenders & mirrors. We also have a price of $1600 if someone wants their Porsche to have the full hood, full fenders, mirrors & front bumper installed with paint protection. For the club’s family & friends or just any vehicle that is not a Porsche, we want to offer a $225 discount on a Front Bumper & HFM kit when both are bought together. Again, if anyone has a question about the deals have them call or email me, thank-you :)
