Treffen 2021 volunteers needed

PCA Treffen
American Club
Kohler, Wis.
Oct. 13 through 17, 2021

To my fellow Porsche Club of America members:

I would like to introduce myself as the 2021 Treffen Chairperson. I am Jim Janes and I joined PCA after purchasing my 911 in 2000. Since then we have had a Panamera which was then traded in for a Macan S which was better suited for Wisconsin winters.

I have been Membership Chair and Treasurer of the Fox Valley Region along with conducting numerous tours, as well as TDS and gimmick rallies. I have now taken on the duties of Treffen Chair for the 2021 Treffen at the American Club in Kohler.

As you have read our newsletters the joint regions of Milwaukee and the Fox Valley have been honored with the 2021 Treffen centered at The American Club in Kohler, Wis. As my wife and I have spent many nights, rounds of golf and dinners at the American Club, I know that Herb, David, and Laura Kohler along with their staff will provide us with a memorable Five-Star experience.

As with any event, especially a National event such as Treffen, it cannot succeed without the help of many volunteers. To this end we have established a Joint Planning Committee between Milwaukee and Fox Valley. We have accepted volunteer positions from both regions to serve on this Committee and are delighted with the response from those who have stepped up.

I believe this group will provide us with a Treffen that will make Milwaukee, Fox Valley and Wisconsin proud.

Even though the October 2021 Treffen is many months away, the Planning Committee needs to know the support we can expect from the joint regions.

An event such as this will need volunteers to make it a success. Your Committee is realizing that all of us want to enjoy the Treffen as much as possible, so we have established 1- to 3-hour volunteer shifts so that no member is overburdened.

Here is a list of the opportunities that are available:

  • Registration: 2 hour shifts 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct 12 and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct 13
  • Information Desk: 2 hour shifts 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct 13 and 7 am to 4 p.m. Oct 14-16
  • Departure Tour Staff: 2 hour shifts 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Oct 14 and 16
  • Car Wash: 2 hour shifts 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Oct 13 and 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. Oct 14,15,and 16
  • Tour Staff: (Leader, Mid and Sweeper) Oct 14 and 16

Not all staffing positions need to be PCA members and volunteers can certainly sign up for more than one shift or task.

All volunteers will be given a T-shirt and are welcome to attend the reception on Wednesday evening. For those non-PCA members needing overnight accommodations, National is making arrangements with nearby hotels with blocks of rooms and a special rate.

In next month’s newsletter I will introduce the Treffen Planning Committee and will go in depth on the opportunities available.

Please consider being active in this Joint endeavor to make our regions the BEST.

To volunteer or with questions please contact Tony Quebbemann,, Milwaukee region, or Todd Benz, Fox Valley region,

For those who have already reached out to Alan Wagner, Milwaukee region president, or Todd, we have you on the volunteer list and will get back to you as more information is needed.

Thank you for your consideration.

Drive safely,

Jim Janes
2021 Treffen Chair
