 Upcoming events

Feb. 2 - Carrera Chili. Our annual mid-winter social get together. Event details including the address and driving directions are here.

Feb. 7 - Board meeting

Feb. 10 - Social events planning session. Got an opinion (everyone has one we're pretty sure) on what makes for a fun social outing? An event could be as simple as a get together for a meal (drive to breakfast or drive to dinner have been popular in the past), a car show, a movie night...bring your ideas. The planning will take place at Panera in New Berlin. Grab a cup of coffee or a baked treat, pull up a chair and join the conversation. 10 a.m. Panera Bread, 15040 W. Greenfield Ave. (This is about 1/4 mile east of Moorland Road on the north side of Greenfield.)

Feb. 16 - The Coffee Travelers (aka Saturday Meet for Coffee). We'll be at the Quarry Cafe in downtown Lannon, Wis., on Main Street. Grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair. No RSVP needed. 9-11 a.m. at 20316 W. Main Street  (Hwy 74)  Lannon, WI 53046.

March 7 - Board meeting 

March 16 - The Coffee Travelers (aka Saturday Meet for Coffee). Location to be confirmed shortly. Donna Daufenbach, intrepid searcher of great caffeine, will let us know shortly were we will meet in March. As the weather improves, Donna hints that the drives will be a bit further, but who cares? Stay tuned.

April 13 - DE Tech Session. Learn the ins and outs of driving your Porsche on a road course. We call that drivers education or DE for short. Details here about that session and other dates related to DE for 2013.

June 23 - 29 - PCA Parade, Traverse City, Mich. Parade is total immersion in Porsche and Porsche Club of America. You can attend and be laid back or fully involved by entering the many competitive events including a concours d'elegance, autocross, rally, technical quizzes and more. Details here.

July 14 - Autocross at the Wis State Fair Park parking lot.

June 8 - Ladies driving tour. Ladies, grab the keys to the Porsche -- yours or his -- and plan to join the Fox Valley region for the annual driving tour. This is an all-day event. Details here.

Aug. 16 - Driver education at Road America. Save the date on your calendar for our region's day at Road America. Novices can learn how to handle their car on the track with the help of a driving instructor while intermediate and experienced drivers can continue to hone their skills as they navigate one of the best road courses in North America.
