January 2019 President’s Report

The Kentucky Region Porsche Club of America wishes each and everyone of you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year and we are looking forward to a fun and exciting 2019. I would like to briefly introduce myself, I’m Steve McCombs the new 2019 KYPCA President. I have been a member for 20 years and have served as president seven other times over the years. And, I’m grateful for your vote and support in granting this 8th term. It’s especially important to me, since 2019 is KYPCA’s 60th year anniversary. I think a party or something special is called for, what do you think?

I would truly like to thank, Jason Miller, for his strong support and efforts as our past president. And I look forward to his help and insight as part of the Executive Committee in this coming year. I would also like to thank the other officers Past and present, Jeremy Miller VP, Richard Darnell Treasure, Robert Klein Secretary, Anthony Minstein Membership Chair, T.H. Morris Activity Chair, Edward Hessel Tour/Drive Chair, Chuck Hicks Chief DE Driving instructor, Dan Stewart, Mark Lichtefeld DE class room instructor, Gene Hoffman Board Member, past Board Member Jim Doll, new Board Member Mark Bos, Bobby Baily Web Master, and Debra Pollock our Southern KYPCA rep. I think I got them all. With the support and involvement of these individuals our Club will continue to improve and be one of the best PCA clubs period.

We will soon have the 2019 Events schedule put together with some new things, which includes the events that have made this Club. Our DE events, the monthly meetings, the dinner wine and bourbon parties, and the DRIVES. We are also grateful to have the continued support of Blue Grass Motorsports Porsche and Randy Biery.

As a reminder, this is your Club, your ideas and events counts. All we ask is for you to step up and join in the fun. Because without you all the work that goes into planning these events will turn out pail in comparison to having lots of members involved. If there is something you would like to see us do that we aren’t or haven’t done, let us know. Or even better, sign up to run an event. I assure you they will come and we’ll all have fun.

**We’re rescheduling the Tech Session at Blue Grass Motorsports for Saturday February 23rd at 10am.**

The February Club Meeting will be held at Famous Dave’s BBQ – 8605 Citadel Way off of South Hurstbourne Pkwy.

There’s always a social gathering before the meeting starting at 6:30pm with the Club Meeting officially starting at 7:00pm.

January 2019 Membership Report

Slow for cars in December. With everyone getting ready for the holidays, and folks heading out for vacation and fairly awful Winter weather, there was little opportunity to get together for a club drive. December is also a slow month for car sales, so only one new member in December, a transfer from the Atlanta based Peachstate Region.

December 2018 President’s Report

President’s Report December 2018

Jason Miller – KY Region President

The Holidays are here, and with them comes my last President’s Report, at least for now. As I wrap up my third 2-year term as President, I thank each and every one of you for making our club what it is. Holly, Grace, and I love our KYPCA family. The friendships we have created will last a lifetime and extend well beyond the cars. We have every intention of staying involved. Besides, who else is going to take all of those spectacular photos.

I want to personally thank each of my fellow officers, board members, and Presidential appointees for leading the club with enthusiasm and passion. From our first-class DE’s to the many exhilarating drives, we work hard to provide something for everyone.

2019 brings back a familiar face. Steve McCombs will step back into the Presidential role. Steve has worked tirelessly over the years to lead our club and I have no doubt he will continue to do so.

Our December meeting will be Monday, December 10 at Fiesta Time Amigos. The meeting starts at 7pm.

Mark your calendars and don’t forget to RSVP for the After Holiday Party Saturday, January 26, 2019. Look for your postcard invitation and e-mail notice soon.

Lastly, if you are not receiving club e-mails please send me your updated e-mail address.

Saturday, October 6th marked the fourth annual German Festival and Bourbon Tasting at the beautiful home of Steve and Bernadette Doolin. This is my favorite event of the year. The weather was perfect and brought out some new faces to join in the fun. It was a nice relaxing outdoor evening with great friends, good food, bourbon, and live music. Jim Beam Black won the night. Place this event on your 2019 calendar, tentatively the first Saturday in October. Thank you Steve and Bernie for another wonderful night!


November brings Officer elections. If you cannot attend the November membership meeting you can vote via e-mail. You should have received one e-mail and will receive a second reminder as the date nears. If you are planning to attend the meeting please do not submit an e-mail vote.

October 2018 President’s Report

President’s Report October 2018

Jason Miller – KY Region President


Can you say WET!! It never stopped raining. Yes, it rained for 3 straight days. But, as they say in Hollywood, “the show must go on.” And with that, KYPCA and Blue Grass Porsche put on another great DE weekend. Our September Fall Fastival, while wet, was still successful.


September 7-9 we once again took over Putnam Park for our Fall Fastival DE. The weather was dreadful. For all of that attended, thank you. For those of you that actually took to the track, great job. And, don’t worry, on a dry track that black Macan S, driven by Chase Abell, can’t pass you that many times. Chase was wheeling in the wet. He’s coming for you John Lewis.


A great big thank you to Randy Biery and the Blue Grass Porsche staff for their continued support without which these DE’s would not be possible. PCNA Hot Shoes John Lewis and Cass Whitehead were again on hand the entire weekend providing on track instruction and ride-alongs. Who knew they’d be chasing a Macan.


Thank you to our instructors. There is no question our instructor crew is the best. And, as always, special thanks to Jeremy Miller, Mark Bos, Richard Darnell, Mark Lichtefeld, Chuck Hicks, Dan Stewart, T.H Morris, and Gene & Peggy Hoffman.


Start planning for the June 2019 DE. Stay tuned for future updates.


Now bring on October. We will once again join 2 other Porsche Regions October 6 for our Annual Huber’s Drive. Later, on the same evening, Steve and Bernadette Doolin will be hosting their 4th Annual German Festival and bourbon tasting.


A reminder: Officer elections will occur in November.


Our October meeting will be Monday, October 8 at Martin’s Bar-B-Que.  The meeting starts at 7pm. Officer nominations will be held.
