President’s Message: 
October 2017 from Sam Dali



This past month or so has been very busy for the Club and the turnout for each event has been tremendous.  Beginning with our “Porsches and Putters”, pop up event, at The Rail, Delaware Park with around 30 people in attendance.  Also, our rescheduled “Polo Match and Picnic” at Brandywine Polo Club, was greatly attended by more than 30 people who enjoyed a beautiful sunny day at the polo match. Thank you to Ron Johnson, VP, for setting up and organizing these events.
 
However, the main event was our September Club Night hosted by Porsche Delaware featuring “Air Cooled Porsches and BBQ”.  We had a huge crowd in attendance to see the cars, enjoy some BBQ, enjoy a refreshing beverage and mingle with friends and PCA members.  Many thanks to Sean Johnson, General Manager and special thanks to Brandon Rogers, Sales Executive, for all his hard work and efforts in organizing this fantastic event.  We appreciate all that the dealership does for our Club.

about

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.
