Here we are, Spring has sprung! I'm sure everyone is as anxious as I am to start burning up some of that dormant rubber.
Speaking on behalf of your executive team the first quarter of our second year has passed; where has the time gone? I feel as if we were behind bars. But fear not. We are working on a number of events for the remaining part of the year. Unfortunately the virus is still with us and conditions dictate certain guidelines be maintained. One in particular is that PCA National has reinstated the signing of the Communicable Disease Waiver. Everyone attending any PCA Region event will be required to sign the waiver. This includes any of the C&C gatherings put together by our downstate coordinators, Rick Roll and Ian Mc Dermott. Knowing that everyone will comply by signing the waiver allows me to post the events on our club calendar. (yes our calendar is being brought to life) Once signed it's good until this time next year. Communicable Disease Waiver
May 1st brings the Porsche Only Swap meet back to life. This is the 45th time for what is known as the largest Porsche only swap meet in the USA. Previously held in Hershey PA, is now being held at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, PA. There are many hidden gems to be found in-between the vintage rusted fenders. It's worth the drive if you've never attended.
May 21st is the Werks Reunion held in Amelia Island, Florida. A great opportunity to go south and enjoy the sun while looking at a host of beautiful Porsche's.
Now here's a head's up event! October 16th is the second annual Boardwalk Reunion held at the Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, NJ. This will be a great time and sell-out event. Just picture a few shots of your car on the boardwalk with hundreds of other Porsche enthusiasts. If you think you might want to go get your reservation now and be sure to mention you're coming to the Porsche event for a 20% discount.
I spoke with Schaefer's Canal House about our August meeting. We made it work last year and I'm anticipating another great club gathering. They are putting in an expanded parking lot that should make our Porsche only area a little easier to hold. The target date is the second Wednesday in August. More to come as we get closer.
Working with Rick and Ian we will be planning a downstate event. I'll send a note when we firm up a date. Some of the suggestions include Grain H2O at the Lewes Ferry depot and Dogfish Head Brewery.
We are a car club made up of members that have joined for a variety of reasons. Racing, Driver DE events and socializing to name a few that stand out to me. The club operates with a National organized leader ship to guide our local executive team. All of PCA is run by volunteers. We have positions open to help with our social events and website publishing. Coming in October will be our election for new members of our executive team including: President, VP and Secretary. Please reach out to any of our executive members about getting involved with the club.
Don't forget our PCA club store for upscale 60th Anniversary items. I'll post our next T-shirt order in a couple of weeks.
PCA is using YouTube for a number of events. Tech Tactics is one. Take a look if you haven't, there are a number of interesting Porsche videos.
I'm hoping to finalize a meeting before the end of the month. Until then stay safe and have a Happy Easter or Passover celebration.
Keep the revs up!
We offer many activities for the Porsche enthusiast. Check our events/social!

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.
