Hello and hope you and yours are well.  Unfortunately, Texas and the Austin area (Travis, Hays and Williamson Counties) are experiencing a significant increase in COVID 19 infections.  This impacts HCR’s desire to hold in person events as you will see below.  Please stay safe, wear a mask and social distance.  We don’t want you to be a statistic.

If you have any news or stories related to the pandemic, please let us know.  You may use the contact information at the end of this email.

DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER SERIES WITH PATRICK LONG

Last Wednesday we held our first Distinguished Speaker Series (DSS) since February featuring Porsche Factory Driver Patrick Long.  There were 120 persons registered for the event.  Patrick discussed Porsche racing, who he has managed the past three months and his upcoming Luftgekühlt.  After Patrick’s comments he answered questions submitted in advance by those registered.  The feedback from the membership was overwhelmingly positive

We successfully used the Zoom webinar format.  We did well for our first time.  Based on that success we will continue to explore using Zoom for future events.  Big thanks to Membership Chair Gordie Robbins, who pulled all this together.  Also, thanks to Charlie Sparks, Steve Guzman and Carl Rossi for their support.

SHOW US YOUR MASK

We know that masks are now a routine part of our everyday life.  I’ve seen lots of different types as I get out and about.  Mine is plain.  We are interested to see what kind of unique masks our membership are sporting.  Please submit a photo of you or someone you know wearing your favorite mask or face covering – especially if it’s Porsche related.  We’ll feature them in the upcoming edition of Horizons.  Please send your submissions to Jonathan Hagar at associateeditor@hcrpca.org by July 15
