Here we go!

 

Porsche Austin Open House!

Demand was so great from our first two Open Houses, so Porsche Austin has added a third date: Tuesday, June 15. AND, we are now full up for this event. 

Remember, Porsche Austin is providing a Covid-safe environment, and please bring your mask. The event is being held during normal business hours at the dealership and we need to respect that other customers may be in the dealership. Everyone who attends is a Porsche Ambassador for HCR! 

 

Boxster 101 Maintenance Tech Session

Chris McChesney brings back his hugely-popular Boxster 101 Maintenance tech session on Saturday, June 19. This is basic Boxster DIY maintenance, and will be simple things you can do to your car that DOESN’T require being hooked up to a computer. This session focuses on replacing FRONT BRAKES, including rotors/pads/sensors. One lucky person can have their front brakes replaced at the session.

Boxster owners ONLY! And the session is limited to 10 people as it’s conducted in Chris’ garage at his house. You MUST arrive in your Boxster!

German Motor Gathering in Boerne

As you all know, the original Driving Tour to Boerne and the German Motor Gathering was canceled due to bad weather. However, the GMG car show has now been rescheduled, so our HCR event is back on. The date is Saturday, June 26 and we depart for Boerne at 8am. Starting location will be emailed to all confirmed registrants a day or two before the event date.

 Everyone who registered for the original Driving Tour and Car Corral will remain as registered, but you will be moved to a Pending status. This is necessary since the original Event Liability Waiver that was signed is no longer valid and must be re-signed. As a result, you must go back in to ClubReg and eSign the Event Liability Waiver. Some of you may not have eSigned the Communicable Disease Waiver (or the one you eSigned may have expired), so that waiver might also need to be signed. Please note that anyone who does not resubmit a new event liability waiver by noon on Sunday, June 20 will not be confirmed for the tour, will be cancelled from the event and no refunds issued. For those drivers that made their charitable contribution ($10) for the original event, we plan to apply your donation to this rescheduled event, so nothing additional is needed. If you are unable to join us on the new date, your money can be refunded or, with your permission, it can be added to the amount that Hill Country Region donates to our supported charities. If you are unable to attend, please login to your ClubReg and cancel your registration, so that other folks would be able to attend in your place.

If you didn’t register for the original tour, but want to attend the rescheduled event, WE STILL HAVE A FEW OPENINGS, so register here: ClubReg.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to: tourmaster@hcrpca.orgor Tom@hcrpca.org.

July Driving Tour: BBQ and Ice Cream!

Our next tour will be on July 24, presented by Driving Adventures USA. Breakfast will be provided by Torqqe Performance, another HCR sponsor and advertiser. I know, I know…it may be hot. So what? Our tour will feature twisty and scenic roads, BBQ lunch in one town, ice cream in another town (to keep you cool), and plenty of back road driving to satisfy your P-car.

We will start off at a club sponsor location (all will be revealed in due time), who will provide breakfast tacos and coffee (restrooms too).

Check out our sponsor’s website: Driving Adventures USA

Looking Back

John Paterson Porsche Collection

Yesterday, Saturday, July 12th, we held a very special event that included tours and viewing of JP’s terrific collection of air-cooled 911’s. Participants began arriving early, and our volunteer parking attendants (i.e. HCR Board Members) got everyone situated quickly and safely. GoMobile Tires was onsite, providing tire change demos of their services. Crazy Crepes Food Truck was there, and I can tell you all from personal experience their lunch crepes were awesome! Other vendors and restaurants in the location provided tents and free handouts. BBQ was served up all day long, and their ribs just melted in your (my) mouth. All in all, everyone had a fantastic time, and it was great to see so many people out and enjoying the setting. We could not have pulled off this event without huge involvement from JP, who coordinated with all his business neighbors to allow us to get everyone parked in comfy spots. He also ensured all the businesses knew we were coming, and everyone was open for business and darn glad to see the crowd. By my count, we had about 116 members show up. Fabulous!

 

Lunch Bunch

We held our first Lunch Bunch in, like, forever this past Thursday at Jardin Corona (huh). Big turnout of about 35 members. The food was excellent and the social company even better. Hats off to the Lunch Bunch team for getting us back in gear and moving forward with their usual “big hit” lunches.

Our objective continues to be to keep our membership up to date on what is going on in HCR, as well as PCA nationally. Please remember, our goal is to deliver events that allow you to participate safely, and to ensure you have fun!  

If any questions or comments, please let me know.
