In the Zone

Three regions in three days, whew!  The stars and club calendars aligned for a brief moment in July and I was able to take advantage of the alignment.  Monday we were in Seattle for Pacific Northwest’s Board and membership meeting, Tuesday we were in Nanaimo, BC for the Vancouver Island’s membership meeting, Wednesday we were in Spokane for Inland Northwest’s membership meeting and Thursday home again.  It was a total of 1400 miles and two ferry trips.  We had a great time and are now planning the next road trip.  A big THANK YOU to all we met, your hospitality and enthusiasm is wonderful.  No matter where you travel, if you stop and visit any PCA group you’ll find the people are always the same: great!  That’s what makes our club so great.

Have you made your plans to attend “Whistler 2014”? This will be the return of a fun and Zone favorite Porsche event.  I hope to see you there.  I’ll be looking for you!  For info see www.pca-cwr.org.
