In the Zone – July 2023

Hello Zone 7,

July is here, activities are abundant with so many awesome events happening. See below for just a few, your local Region has even more to offer and look at your neighboring Regions as well.

For me June brought so many wonderful events.

I visited Sequoia Region who celebrated with a 65th Region Anniversary dinner after holding a Region Cars and Coffee that morning. How honored I was to be there and celebrate with them. Their Cars & Coffee has a highlighted car chosen each time. President Kevin Scritchfield seized the opportunity and together chose 2 this time out. Yes the cars were great and so many folks to meet. The evening get-together had delicious food and even more members. Including a raffle, and I was on a winning streak (hope I get invited back again … LoL).

Porsche Celebrated 75 years. On June 10th. I visited one of my local Porsche Centers and watched some of the Le Mans action on a HUGE screen. I hope you celebrated this landmark date in some way.

Prior to the Palm Springs Parade I attended the Summer PCA National meeting. Lots of good info was shared there. There are so many volunteers on every level to make PCA all of what it is … Thanks to them.

Palm Springs was my first Parade! I just never coordinated it in the past. If you have been to a Parade, you know … for those who have not attended, I can’t recommend it enough. In a hot area (It was hot but “it is a dry heat” is the mantra and true). It worked within conditions well, events started early and were wrapped up to beat the heat, evening functions were timed well to now enjoy the post setting sun. That gave me all day to do even more, often indoors or under shade with a beverage close by. Zone 7 was well represented with over 200 Members attending. The List of top honors and trophies is long. If you go to the Parade website you can find results there .

One award given I want to highlight: The PCA National Enthusiast of the Year: Presented to a Region member who best exemplifies the spirit and guidelines of PCA. CONGRADULATIONS to Dr Allen Krohn of the Shasta Region.

I am just back from a PCA West Coast Series Clubrace at Thunderhill hosted by Golden Gate Region. The racing was fun and exciting. Keep an eye out for these Clubraces as you can attend as a spectator, or be a part of the consecutively run DE weekend in our Zone that is often bookended Friday or Monday by a Region DE.

Now let’s bring on July!

Join in on the fun, please volunteer,

See you at an event soon.
