In The Zone – November 2023

Hello Zone 7,

November … The leaves are turning, and my chickens just aren’t earning their keep. But that’s what shorter days bring.

I need to repeat the closing of October message, my head is still spinning with RENNSPORT. I had a great time watching the races, meeting MANY PCA friends and volunteering. Everyone who attended has their own highlights and special moments… Mine was personally meeting. Saying HI and thanking as many volunteers as I could. The high-powered golf cart (chuckle chuckle) made that a bit easier. If I didn’t connect personally … THANK YOU! We are SO lucky to have this signature Porsche event literally in our home.

Early October the Zone 7 Presidents and other team members met for our Biannual Presidents Meeting. We bonded, I shared info on many of the tools and resources that PCA brings to every Region to assist in continuing to grow and our community. Zone 7 is without a doubt a vibrant and active group.

I attended the Sequoia Region Oktoberfest and searching for what the German word for extravaganza is to try to share this event. Well the word is “ Extravaganz” so nothing lost in translation. Awesome food, yes some beer & wine, music, live painting by Kelly Telfer (that was auctioned that night), a raffle, dealer partnership with the ’24 Cayenne launch & more. Very fun group of members. The Oktoberfest bar has been set very high. Hope you enjoyed your region celebration if you had one.

Club Races were held in Sonoma. Keep an eye on that calendar … Makes a great trip to see the action on the track. Golden Gate Region team does a top notch job with this and incorporating into a DE.

Some behind the scenes support with the Zone 7 Autocross team, reviewing the rules as they do annually. I made a comment that “you may think this is just a course of cones laid out and you get a time”. It is so much more to make great event come together, all from a group of very knowledgeable folks. Thanks for what you do. Put an autocross event on your must do list.

Closing now because I need to go detail my car as the next three weekends have Zone 7 Concours each Sunday. Wish me luck.

I do hope to see you at an event SOON.
