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.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

Jason

President’s Report November 2018

Jason Miller – KY Region President

 

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.

 

SAVE THE DATE – our 2018 Holiday Hangover Party will be Saturday, January 26, 2019. Details will follow as things come together.

 

Lastly, as we prepare the 2019 calendar, suggestions for our monthly membership meetings and other club related activities are appreciated.  Preferred meeting location criteria include:  a FREE meeting room, good parking for the Porsche, and quality affordable food.  Please e-mail me:  millermd@twc.com.

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.

September Membership Report

August was relatively quiet for the Kentucky Region. We’re gearing up for our 2nd hosting DE in early September, plus folks are getting ready for the end of summer. Which didn’t stop us from a 3rd ice cream run (our club seems to like events which end with a meal, or with ice cream).

This time, it was a run out to Ghirardelli ice cream parlor at the new Outlet shoppes, just outside of Louisville. We could have taken the freeway; 20 minutes tops, but where is the fun in that? Instead our activity committee created an hour and a half romp through central Kentucky 2 lanes and farm roads. At one point, our train of 16 cars took up the whole road. Lucky for us we didn’t run into a farm tractor coming the other way. The ice cream was good, the drive, better…and the socializing at the ice cream store the best of all.

Our 2nd event was a pool party at the Minstein’s. This has become an annual event, the 2nd year the Minstein’s gave up their backyard and pool for the club. Food and drink again was provided by the club and prepared by the Minsteins. White Castle hamburgers, chicken wings, a grilled salmon (expertly grilled by Vycki Minstein), Tater Tots, Salad and a smoked brisket (smoked by Event Chair TH Morris) laid out under what turned out to be a very pleasant summer evening.

The event ended with a number of swimmers in the pool, and all guests imbibing a dessert of Klondike Bars and Cracker Jack.
