Thank you for your help from your great organization 🏁

WOW! Suncoast PCA Celebrated Its 60th Anniversary.

Greeks believe that rain is good luck. Well, those who drove to Saddlebrook last Friday must have expected a lot of good luck, because it was raining all the way there from Venice.

Once there, it was a parade of familiar faces not seen in too long a period of time. Among the roughly 150 people were the likes of Dr. Bill LaRosa one of the four founding officers of Suncoast Region, brand new members, and every length of membership in between. Also in attendance were Mr. & Mrs. Danny Saxton of the Atlanta area. Danny is a long-time member of PCA’s Porsche Parade Committee, currently heading up 2022 Parade Autocross. Lisa Lewis, our very own Zone 12 Rep and her husband, Mike Koller were there and acted as the “Sweep” for my group of Tour participants, one of 8 groups.

The tour was the last event of the weekend, and fittingly ended with a stop for lunch in Wesley Chapel 4-miles from where we began. (See below)

If you weren’t able to get to the celebration, watch for coverage of it in the January/February issue of Suncoast Porsche Profile on our Website January 1st. (Good news: The hardcopy may reach you shortly after that. The Nov/Dec Profile was mailed by the printer last Friday and I know a member who received it today - Monday.)

Upcoming Events -
REGISTER AT: www.clubregistration.net

November 20 – Breakfast with Porsches at Skillet’s in Venice – 8:30 AM

November 21 – Autocross at Venice Municipal Airport – a day of cutting among cones.

December 11 - Please join us at 10:00 AM for an Open House/Tech Day at CeramicPro of Sarasota, at 5858 Deacon Road in Sarasota. Their expert staff will present information and demonstrations of goods and services, ranging from car care products to detailing to paint coatings, available in their shop to enhance your Porsche ownership experience. Coffee and donuts will be provided.

A group luncheon for those interested, will be held at Oak and Stone Restaurant at 4067 Clark Road, in Sarasota, immediately after the Ceramic Pro event. Additional signup is required.

Welcome to the Suncoast PCA Region Website

Welcome to Florida’s Suncoast Region Porsche Club, located in Zone 12 of the Porsche Club of America.

Founded in 1961, we have come a long way from an early gathering of a few dedicated Porsche enthusiasts to now becoming one of the largest regions in PCA, encompassing the counties of Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, and Sarasota.

​Suncoast PCA 60th Anniversary Celebration

November 5, 6, & 7
Saddlebrook Resort, Wesley Chapel, FL

In January 1961, a small group of Porsche enthusiasts met to create PCA’s Suncoast Region. Thanks to these innovative thinkers, great leadership throughout the years, amazing volunteers, and fantastic members we have a unique opportunity to honor our history, commemorate achievements, and celebrate all things Porsche! The promise of Porsche camaraderie and good cheer will guide this amazing weekend! The final agenda is some ways off but experienced planning committee members have been busy designing a Porsche-centric experience that is guaranteed to delight all family members. Make plans now to join old friends and new friends, your fellow Suncoast PCA members, for this special event.

Agenda:
The current thinking suggests the following however updates will be provided in coming e-blast e-mails.

Friday, November 5:
• Registration will open around 4 pm in the hotel lobby, room check-ins will be available also at 4 pm.
• Buffet dinner with lots of time to mingle with old and new PCA friends.

Saturday, November 6:
• Registration in the morning for Saturday arrivals
• Breakfast
• Concours to include both Judged (PCA National Judging standards) and People’s Choice categories during the morning.
• Box lunch
• A Rally in the afternoon
• A Member Hospitality Suite will be available throughout the day with times to meet a few of your Board of Directors and a special new member welcome session to review the benefits of PCA membership, Suncoast Region activities and similar.
• Tech sessions
• Fundraising activities for Ready for Life including a silent auction and our Wine, Wheels and Wishes wine tasting in the afternoon
• A fun filled evening with our Gala celebration including plated dinner, cash bar, awards ceremony, and perhaps a dance floor where you can show off your moves!

Sunday, November 7:
• Breakfast
• Tour from Resort to a TBD location for lunch
• Golf Tournament – to support our designated charity, Ready for Life

Location and Room Reservations:
Saddlebrook Resort, 5700 Saddlebrook Way, Wesley Chapel, FL 33543 (https://www.saddlebrook.com). Our celebration will be from Friday afternoon, November 5th through Sunday, November 7. Saddlebrook is offering “Run of the House” room rate options at $179/night for Deluxe Suite Style Guest Rooms, $209/night for one bedroom/one bath suites, or $269/night for two bedroom/two bath suites (plus applicable taxes). Rates include in-room self-service coffee or tea, daily admittance to fitness center, daily newspaper from Bell Stand, and high-speed internet access in rooms and public areas. These reduced rates are available three days before and after the event. We strongly encourage you to stay Friday and Saturday to take full advantage of event activities. Make your reservation by calling Saddlebrook at 813-907-4401 and mention Suncoast PCA (or Suncoast Porsche Club) or online at http://bookings.ihotelier.com/bookings.jsp?groupID=3260345&hotelID=13241. Please let them know if you have any special needs. The resort will make every effort to place our rooms close to each other and close to meeting spaces. A credit card will be required to hold your room. Reservations should be made no later than October 6, the sooner the better in case the room block sells out.

Event Registration:
All registrations must be done in our online registration system https://clubregistration.net (often referred to as ClubReg). If you haven’t yet created an account in that system, now is the time to do so. We anticipate registration will open by Sept. 1 and close around October 8. When the event details are finalized, we will send out an e-mail with registration information and update here.

Volunteers Needed:
All great events need volunteers. We need your help to aid with specific activities such as Concours, Rally, Tour, and Tech Sessions; preparing for and assisting with Registration; hosting the Member Hospitality Suite; as well as supporting Ready for Life fundraising including setting up and monitoring silent auction items and helping with Wine, Wheels and Wishes. We also need volunteers to help with the Ready for Life Golf Tournament on Sunday. Please reach out to president@suncoastpca.org to raise you hand. Your fellow members appreciate your involvement!

 

​Porsche Profile Strikes Gold at the 2020 PCA National Awards Ceremony

Lightning strikes again! The November/December 2019 issue of Suncoast Porsche Profile was selected “Best Newsletter” in Class V at the 2020 PCA National Awards presentation held on August 19, 2020. Usually done at Parade, this year, due to the pandemic, the awards ceremony was done virtually on YouTube. You can see the entire event at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXMl2jFTb-Q

The selected issue was great because of the writings of our columnists: John Vita, Fiona Brooks, Pedro Bonilla, Tom Briest, George Wienhold and Jim Hoey; our erstwhile contributors: Hans-Joachim Krenz, Bill and Mary Caldwell, Bill Sumansky, Rich Tillotson, Denise Remus, Dan Engel, Kevin Pizzarello and our European Correspondent—Jeremy Swiger. Then there were the unseen workers: Assistant Editor—Ralph Porzio, Graphic Artist—Dave McGowan, and Copy Editor—Penny Sippel. They all deserve this award, and we thank them for their help in achieving this honor for our region once again.

Thank you all who have written, or are now writing for Profile.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Suncoast PCA members and friends,

We are experiencing an unprecedented public health emergency with restricted travel and cancellations of major events to eliminate gatherings of large crowds.  We are all concerned about Covid 19 and it’s potential impact on our families and friends. 

We want you to know we are closely monitoring the CDC and health department recommendations. We are evaluating each of our member events to determine whether we should cancel or postpone. We will post updates on our website, Facebook page, and through focused email blasts.

We want to make sure we support the health and safety of our members.  Remember: 

  • Stay home when you are sick 
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds 
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue into the trash and wash your hands
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me or another board member. Our contact information is published on www.SuncoastPCA.org and in the Profile magazine.  

Thank you for your patience as we continue to monitor this evolving situation.  

Denise Remus, President
