Do we know what we are doing, or what?!? KYPCA and Blue Grass Porsche put on one heck of a DE time after time. And, our September Fall Fastival was no exception.
The Thursday evening pre-festivities included a surprise “birthday” party for yours truly. Gifts are not necessary, the morning headache was gift enough.
Friday saw all day rain, which left plenty of open track time. This was my first exposure to the wet. As if sliding around the track in the rain didn’t increase my anxiety enough, the mandatory open windows took it to a whole other level. All jokes aside, driving in the wet was a good experience and the car is fine.
Saturday and Sunday brought cool temperatures with a mix of sun and clouds. But, I think the 147 registered participants would agree, the days were nearly perfect. Thanks to everyone that participated. And as always, a 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 in a 911 GTS and a Cayman GTS. Man, those guys can drive!
Thanks must also be given to the many club members who continually invest their time to plan, run, and instruct. There are too many to mention. But, special thanks goes out to Jeremy Miller, Mark Bos, Richard Darnell, Mark Lichtefeld, Chuck Hicks, Dan Stewart, T.H Morris, and Gene and Peggy Hoffman.
Start planning for the June 2016 DE. There will be 15 slots available for Friday Instructor Certification. This is only offered every other June and is limited to 15 people.
Now bring on October. Steve and Bernadette Doolin will be hosting a German Festival and bourbon tasting at their home October 10 at 6pm. And we will once again round out October with our Annual Huber’s Drive.
Our October meeting will be Monday, October 12 at Blue Grass Motorsport. The meeting starts at 7pm, but many arrive as early as 6:30. Pizza and beer will be served. Officer nominations and elections will be held.
