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 October 2018
by Bob Farris


 Hello everyone, 

    We have a few things scheduled for October that should be fun and interesting. First however, we have some business items to address. Our Delaware Region PCA bylaws state that elections for club officer positions be held yearly. However, our club Historian AK Kissell informed me at our last Executive Meeting that for the past 25 years elected officers of our region had served one additional year after their initial election term, terms being one year. I've asked the three talented people I have the pleasure of working with if they would be willing to stay on with me in their positions for one additional year, and they all replied yes. However, to keep the process as open and transparent as possible, we will be accepting nominations from any member wishing to run for any elected position in the club. There will be an election during our November club meeting for nominations received and verified by our nominating committee. The nominating committee is comprised of AK Kissell, club Historian, and Carl Thompson our Membership Chairman. They can be reached via email: AK-  a9146k@gmail.com and Carl - ffrcobra1@gmail.com.

    Saturday October 6th will be the regular first Saturday of the month meeting of Coffee and Porsches at the Panera Bakery in Dover: 545 N DuPont Hwy, Dover, DE at 9 am.

    Our monthly membership meeting for October will be at Skipjack's Dining on Wednesday October 10th at 6 pm. Skipjack's address is: 401 Louviers Dr., Newark,DE 19711. 

    On Sunday October 14th we will be driving to the Whip Tavern for Brunch. This event has been very popular in the past, and since the Whip doesn't take reservations they have asked us to limit our number to 30 people. We'll be meeting at Piazza-Porsche Delaware at 08:30 am  and will drive to the Whip in two groups. The Whip will be opening early for the club, so if you'd like to join us  please contact our club Secretary Les Clarke, and don't delay: les.clarke@verizon.net .

    On Sunday October 21st there will be a "pop-up" get together at McGlynns Pub in Dover, DE at 4 pm. Member Rick Roll has arranged with the pub to have a gathering for our members on what should be a crisp, fall, football afternoon. McGlynns Pub address in Dover is: 800 N. State Street, Dover,DE. Come out and join some fellow club members and talk Porsches, so save the date.

    The very next weekend we'll be tasting wine, probably with our pinkies in the air, at the Chateau Bu-De Vineyard and Winery at the 440 acre Bohemia Manor Farm near the Bohemia River in Chesapeake City, MD. Member Millie Acosta has coordinated a visit to the winery for the club with a wine tasting on October 28th at 3 pm. Please confirm your space at the tasting with Millie:  acostamillie5@gmail.com. Come out and join us and purchase a few bottles. 

    That's our schedule for October, there should enough things to keep everyone busy for a while. Lastly, I would like to give a thank you to Mike Holmes, our Track Chairman, and Zoe Brady, DE Registrar for their hard work during our recent successful DE event. Mike and the entire Track Committee have again done a stellar job promoting the Delaware Region of PCA in the area while adding to our coffers. One person we definitely must thank is Tom DiCesare of Brandywine Motorwerks for his generous donations of beer, water, and shirts, plus his help in keeping things running mechanically.

    I'm looking forward to seeing many of you over the next month, drive safe, Bob.
