I would like to announce that Gene Hoffman has accepted the position as our new Membership Chair. Gene and I discussed that we need to canvas the membership to acquire each member’s latest email account name/address so we can make sure everyone gets the club’s timely information. I’m also asking the membership to go on line to www.Kypca.org and sign up. I’ve had several people in the last week or so ask about some events that have been posted in the new online digital PaceSetter. This tells me there are still members out there that are not getting information about club events.
During Parade, the National officers had a meeting to discuss various business matters concerning the Club. One of those bits of information discussed and voted on was to have the Panorama available as a digital copy on line at www.pca.org. I believe this form of media will be available sometime in mid Fall this year. It was also sighted that the Porsche Club of America is growing at a rate of 2% per month where all other major Car Club memberships are sharply dropping off. I think the Porsche Club must be doing something better than all the rest. That brings me to a question I’ve asked month after month about our Region’s activities. Is there anything that we can do to make things more interesting and fun so we can encourage more involvement from our membership? If it looks like we’re limited in our activities, it’s because we need new and fresh ideas— and people interested in putting them on. Is anyone out there? Is anyone even reading this? Heck who knows, we could have a huge turn out for something new.

The 2012 Kentucky Region calendar year is off to a roaring start. The After Holiday Party was a huge success with 42 people attending, good food and wonderful door prizes, and drinks for all. If you missed it you really missed a good time. So to keep the wheels moving, I asked our activities chair Steven Rountree to put together a list of events for this year. Hopefully one event in March would be a wine tasting event (more information about this event to be posted on our website).
Speaking of the Kentucky Region website, have you signed up on our website to get these notices? It’s very easy to do and I highly suggest you do it soon before you miss out on some interesting upcoming events. We are proceeding forward with placing the PaceSetter on the website only and discontinuing the mailed paper version. As you noticed last month the newsletter was really late in getting to everyone because of problems with our printer. Our efforts, in 2012, are to make Club information real time and give as much notice as possible. My hopes are to roll out a review of the features of the website PaceSetter so you can see what our plans look like. Right now I foresee the paper version still being mailed out until the August time frame (and it could be longer if we don’t have things in place).
