Tim Hagner - High Desert Region Past President & Zone 6 Rep

The “Summer of PCA” is winding down, what a summer!

I hope you where able to take your Porsche and enjoy all your Club had to offer you this summer.  Did you manage to join some of your fellow PCA’ers in your neighboring regions?  From my travels I’ve learned that PCA’ers are the same in all regions; friendly, welcoming and sharing the Porsche passion.

There where so many regional events in our Zone, I can’t list them all, there was something for everyone. Tours: 1day and multi day, car shows, concours, auto-X, DE’s, Driver Skills classes, Rallies, a Funkana, Charity funds raisers, meetings and other things I’ve forgotten.  Through-out our Zone 6 we had at least one PCA event every weekend, whew.  If you couldn’t find that event you wanted, go ahead and put it on and share it with your Club!

At the Zone and National level we had the Zone 6 Grand Tour (5,200 miles, 15 days) , Whistler Weekend in B.C. Canada, Parade in French Lick, IN, Escape in South Dakota and Rennsport in Monterey, CA.  How many of these did you manage to attend?  Judging from every event I attended this year out of our zone, you made a lot.  Their was always Zone 6’ers to be found.  Good job Zone 6!

Thank you to the volunteers!  All of this great fun is made possible by the effort of PCA volunteers.  From the National Pres. Caren Cooper down to you.  Without them we wouldn’t have the viable and active club we have today.  When you volunteer, your club experience is enhanced, you feel more connected and involved.  And I’ve noticed your club satisfaction increases with your understanding of what it takes to run and manage your Club.

Here’s my Zone Rep challenge to you:

First: attend a regional event in another region. You’ll have a great time.

Second: volunteer, help a fellow volunteer with the planning and execution of an                        event.  They’ll gladly share the hows and whys of putting on an event.  It’s that time of the year for new club officers to come forward.  This would be a great way to give back to your Club as a volunteer.

Are you up for the challenge?  I know you are.  When I see you next time let me know how it’s going.

I’ll see you in the zone!
