Close to 50 new and veteran club members mingled before sitting down to enjoy a delicious buffet. Club President Steve Kent welcomed the new members and took the opportunity to explain the club’s history, purpose and range of activities offered.

New member Ray Barringer brought his whole family which gave Craig Kugler a chance to explain the PCA Juniors program for Porsche enthusiasts under the age of 18 (for more information on this program, please see

After breakfast, members headed outside for the People’s Choice Concours. The turnout of Porsche cars was dampened by early morning rains, but by the time judging began, the sun sun had broken through and the competition was keen. Voting came down to the last ballot cast and Tommy Livoti’s lovely blue Boxster stole the show. Congratulations Tommy!
