We Welcome You – And We Need You! As only one of many volunteers who donate their time and talents to keep this club active, I welcome all of you who have recently joined Gold Coast. Some of you have been members of PCA in other regions. Some of you have been members of other car clubs. So you all know about the types of activities we offer. For those of you brand new to a car club, and especially the Porsche Club of America, you are in for some awesome opportunities. This region is one of the largest in PCA. We have around 2300 members. There are some who join only for the award winning and collectible PORSCHE PANORAMA – well worth the membership fee. But for those of you looking to get to know the people as well as the cars, we encourage you to jump right in and get involved.
This club offers a number of different types of social and driving events. Everything we do is organized and managed by our own members on a volunteer basis. We have members who have devoted countless hours for as many as 50 years. Seriously there are some older & wiser members who are still very vital assets to this organization.
But as you can imagine, some of us (them) are getting pretty tired. We always need new blood as we refer to newer volunteers. New Blood brings fresh ideas. And though we have some long time traditions, we are always open to new ideas and new energy. Our board meetings are open to all members. We serve dinner and socialize before the meeting so this would be a great place to get an inside view of what’s going on and coming up for the club. We meet the first Thursday of the month at a member’s home. Please call one of us if you’d like to attend an upcoming meeting. My hope is that after attending, you will want to become more involved. But at the very least, you’ll get a good meal!
The PCA motto is It’s not just about the cars, it’s about the people. And I assure you it’s true. I have so many great memories of my years in PCA. And even better, I have made a lot of very good friends through local, multi-regional and national events.
So don’t be shy. Get involved. If you have any questions about upcoming events, call one of us. The officers, board members and committee chairs are listed in the KASSETTE. Even if you just have ideas, please contact us. Give us your thoughts. But even better, give us your time!
