President’s Report – March 2010

Hopefully by the time this is being read all of the snow has melted and it is time to start thinking about getting the Porsche out of the garage. The DE is right around the corner so if you have never been it is a great time and you should start thinking about signing up! If track days aren’t your thing you should still make the trip up and hang out and check out the cars.

President’s Report – February 2010

Well Everyone,

We had another successful and fun meeting in February. On that snowy evening
we had 15 members who braved the cold and winter storm warning to come out and enjoy the
get-together. The club funded a round of refreshments to make things more enjoyable…

As I stated in last month’s “Presidential Gems”, we’re doing something different with the monthly
membership meeting. My hope as this year’s president is to make these meetings fun, interesting
and something that everyone would look forward to attending (a true gathering or get-together).

President’s Report – November 2009

Wow! October was a really fun month. It started with the Louisville Concours where we had approx. 10 cars in the Churchill Downs Infield corral. The Huber Winery Drive was attended by 15 cars and we met up with CIR who had 20 cars, all on a very cool Saturday afternoon.

The monthly meetings continue to increase in attendance. And the DE at Putnam Park was well attended with over 80 cars. The year is winding down and the weather is becoming iffy to do any big Drive events. But we’re still interested in doing those spur of the moment drives. So if someone has an idea and the weather on the weekends are good, place a note on the website and let’s go.

President’s Report – October 2009

Well, Fall is upon us and it’s a great time of the year to get those cars out on the road and enjoy the countryside. I’ve been very pleased with the turn out for the monthly membership meetings and all seem to have a good time. But I sure wish that we would have more members interested in going on the Drives. A group of 6 Club members drove to the West Baden, IN, for the 356 Holiday and it was really something special. To see 200+ pre-1965 Porsche cars in that historic sight was quite first class and exciting.

President’s Report – September 2009

Wow this year is flying by, September is upon us. That means Fall colors so let’s go for a ride and/or test your driving skills at the October DE event. The August meeting was well attended and the center of discussion was on the 50th Anniversary Party. It’s important to note there will be formal invitations mailed out to all existing members. You are requested to fill it out, attach your check, and mail it back to the committee before Sept. 9th. That is the only way you will be counted as a guest for this event. There will be no pay at the door for this event. Please check the website for updates on this event.

We are now in the prime weather time to have various drive events, but unfortunately we haven’t had any volunteers to arrange any. If there are some of you out there that would like to set something up, it is very easy. Just plan it and then see who’s interested. The monthly meeting is continuing to be well attended and the May meeting will be at the Blue Grass dealership…

President’s Report – April 2009

Hey everyone, so far 2009 is turning into a really strong year for the Kentucky Region. Our attendance at
the monthly meeting keeps growing and those who attend are having a good time. People are staying around
longer and we have new members attending each meeting. The March meeting was our first Tech session
meeting, at Tony’s place, Stuttgart Specialists. And I wanted to tell Tony, thanks for offering up your shop
for the meeting and the Tranny tear down session. It’s definitely something we would like to repeat later on
this year.
