President’s Report – October 2011

October is here and it looks like we had another outstanding DE event! Thanks to all involved in making The Kentucky Region’s DE event one of the best PCA has to offer. And as always, a BIG thanks to BlueGrass Motorsports, our local Porsche Dealership. Randy’s (and this crew’s) involvement is second to none and always first class.

We have two driving events in October: the Louisville Concours Porsche paddock Oct 2nd, and the 12th Annual Huber’s Winery drive Oct 8th to meet up with the three other Regions (CIR, Bluegrass and SIR). The monthly membership meetings are going well with attendance growing each month. You should plan on attending this month’s meeting at Tony’s shop (Stuttgart Specialists) where we’ll have a cook out during the meeting. Also plan on attending our “Movie Drive-In Night” October 22nd sponsored by Mark Lichtefeld. We are looking at having another “After The Holiday’s Party” like last year, probably in mid January 2012.

It’s that time of the year—when elections are at hand. If you’re interested in holding an office for the 2012 year, please let Matt Innes (elections chair) know so we can get your name on the ballot. New people and new ideas are the future of your club, why not get involved. As always, we’re open to hearing from the membership about fun and interesting things to do. This is your club. Help us make it worth the time you have to invest.

Hope to see ya soon,

Steve McCombs

President’s Report – March 2011

Things are heating up, especially the weather. I don’t know of anyone who isn’t waiting for warmer weather. And with warmer weather, it’s time to plan drives and get-togethers. Is there something special you would like to do? Please let one of the officers know, so we can look into it.

President’s Report – February 2011

I wanted to thank everyone for attending January’s monthly meeting and I apologize for it being a lengthy meeting. I promise that future meetings will be shorter and with content interesting to the membership. As I’ve stated in many past newsletters, we will be focusing on new members this year. My hopes are that new members will feel welcome and part of the group right off the bat. It’s the new members that will be the future of the Kentucky Region. We all should be proud of the group of people we now have and with a diverse interest in various events within the club. This makes our group worth joining. So I ask for everyone’s involvement and support to make this a club worth belonging to. This is your club, you make it what it is or what it isn’t. And your opinions count to help make this a worthwhile organization to be a part of. Please help me make this fun.

President’s Report – January 2011

Hey everyone, Happy New Year, and wishes for a truly wonderful 2011.

I would like to start off with asking for help from all the membership in making our 2011 calendar year interesting and fun to be involved. The calendar is wide open for suggestions of things you would like to do. We’ve all gone through some difficult economic times here and we need to add a little fun in our lives for a change. The website is up and it’s a great place to post your ideas. We already have plans for two DE’s this year in June and September and we’ll be planning on some additional events to go along with them. Some suggested ideas for drives are: the bourbon trail, the Corvette Museum, over night trip to the Smokey’s, the P2O event in Ohio, along with the Keeneland Concours and the fall Huber Drive. Any other ideas are welcome! Along with the New Year comes new officers. This year the changes are the president’s position and a new board member, Jason Miller. I would like to thank Tony Proasi for his time and support as 2010 president and Edgar Smiley for his time and support as board member.

President’s Report – June 2010

Well June is here and it is time for one of our regions signature events (and one of my personal favorites), the June DE.  I hope everyone has signed up, and if you haven’t please do so, it is a great time.  If you haven’t already,
please make plans to make the drive up to check it out.

President’s Report – May 2010

Well by the time you read this Derby will have passed, which brings up the topic of a local PCA get together – in the past it was the Porsche Derby,
Autumn Derby, & Octoberfest. Well maybe it is time to bring back one of these events or start something new, and I would like to ask the help of the members for suggestions.

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.
