President's message

September 2016


Hello ,

I can’t believe I just turned the calendar to September.  Time has just flown by this summer.  We had a great turnout for our August, Club Night, on a beautiful summer evening at Schaefer’s Canal House in Chesapeake City, MD, overlooking the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.  Over 50 people attended our meeting.  Sean Johnson, General Manager, Porsche of Delaware, provided some insight on the transition with the new ownership ready to acquire the Winner dealership.  Our big winners of the night, for our $50 Schaefer’s gift cards, were John Walton and Les Clarke.  Congratulations to John and Les, enjoy another dinner at Schaefer’s.

Joyce Hunt also provided some additional door prizes, for the group, she got from the Porsche Parade held in Jay Peak, VT., thank you, Joyce. The Club appreciates all the time and effort Fred Stapleford put forth in organizing this meeting and special parking for our P-Cars.

Our next Club Night will be held on September 14, at The Redfire Grill, located at 400 Lantana Drive (Lantana Square Shopping Center) Hockessin, DE  19707.  Special parking will be provided for our special cars.  The meeting will begin around 6:00pm with dinner orders taken after 6:15PM.  The Chef has prepared a special menu to select your dinner entrees, that should prove to be delicious.

Polo Match and Picnic (BYOP) Brandywine Polo Club- September 25

Join us on Sunday, September 25, 2016 for an afternoon of polo and tailgating at Brandywine Polo Club, which is located at 232 Polo Road, Toughkenamon, PA 19374, adjacent to New Garden Airport.

We will meet at Lantana Square, on Route 7, in Hockessin, at 1:45 PM, and convoy over to the polo grounds in Toughkenamon at approximately 2:00 PM.

Please bring your own lawn chairs, food and refreshment. Alcoholic beverages are also allowed in moderation. 

There are portable toilets on the grounds, but no food service. So, please be sure to bring your own food and beverage. Furthermore, there is limited shade, so please have a hat and sunscreen available.

The cost is $10.00 per person. Please have cash available to pay at the main gate. You can pay the extra $35 per car to park in the tailgate area, if you choose, but it is not necessary, as general parking is very close to where we will tailgate, and watch the match.

Parking is in a smooth, grassy area. The road inside of the gate is paved, and devoid of ruts and potholes. The parking area is also situated remotely enough from the fields so there is no possibility of a car being struck by an errant polo ball. There should be no issues at all with our cars.

In case you miss the convoy, the matches begin at 3 PM, with the gates opening at 1:30 PM. The convoy will likely arrive around 2:15 PM-2:20 PM, so look for club members as you approach the parking area. 

The match, depending on format, should be over by 5:30 PM. 

Free programs are available from the gate attendant.

If you have not attended a polo match in the past, you will likely find the game to be fast and entertaining. Provided we have good weather, which is characteristic for late September, it should be a very nice afternoon in Chester County. 

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Joe has spent 16 years with Porsche, and has been in his current role for the past eight. Before his most recent promotion, he worked in the Logistics Division and was Manager of Business Development for Porsche N.A. Those who know Joe say he is a wealth of information on the brand. 

His topic will be "The Evolution of Technology,"  which will look at old and new technologies, and how they have intersected. Furthermore, we are confident there will be ample time for Q&A, which will likely span a number of topics. 

Please be a part of what should be one of our most informative and special Club Nights this year.

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.
