NEW and UPDATE events are highlighted below. 

 

REMINDER: To locate events, details, and registration information, please go to our HCR Calendar and you can find all these events there with registration links.

 

UPDATE: At our October Board meeting, the Board voted to reinstate our indoor events. Going forward, we will rely on our members to make their own choices about which events to attend.

 

Our Social Committee has been working overtime to set their new monthly schedule of recurring and special events. I want to thank our Social Event Coordinators that are working so hard to get our monthly indoor events going again . . . they are quickly filling up our calendar with new events! These people are volunteers working behind the scenes to put on fun events for our members . . . special thanks to them!

 

Take a look below!

That being said, we will hold the October Happy Hours this Thursday, October 28 from 5:30pm – 7:00pm. Put that date and time on your calendar. 

 

Here’s the details for October 28th Happy Hours:

Plenty of free parking for your P-Cars and Happy Hour prices at both locations.

 

 

Oct 30: Tour to Belton and Beyond

How about a drive up north for a change? It promises to be “spooktacular”.  We’ll wind through farm lands on some roads you may not have driven and that are just as nice as our Hill Country Roads. You’re sure to find some a-maze-ing turns. Hurry, registration closes in just a few days!

 

Registration required plus a $10.00 administrative fee for this event.

Nov 13: Fall Autocross

Our Fall Autocross is on Saturday, November 13 at the HEB Center in Cedar Park. At the last Autocross, we had a bunch of individuals from outside of PCA that joined us. While this is great from a financial perspective, our goal is to fill up the 60-person roster with PCA members. This event is now open to the public, and will fill up quickly, so don’t delay. 

 

Registration and event fee payment required.

 

 

Nov 18: Brewery Afternoons

Nov 20: Petrol Lounge/HCR New Members’ Social, presented by XPEL Austin

Petrol Lounge will host this event at their new location at 2631 Kramer Lane in Austin. It’s bigger and waaaay better than their former location, with lots more cool cars. This event is for all members, and especially our members who joined us in 2021. But everyone is invited. 

 

Please note attendance is capped at 75 people, and there will be a NON-refundable $10.00 per person administration fee at registration, to help defer the cost of tables, chairs, and table cloths. 

 

Registration and $10 administrative fee payment required.

 

 

Dec 4: Hill Country Scavenger Hunt Drive

Stacey and Rich Soule have organized a pretty swell scavenger hunt set for Saturday, December 4! Best part: you get to drive your P-Car to hunt for the scavenger items! Hint: you need a tech-savvy navigator for this event, plus a cell phone with camera to decode the clues, solve the riddles, and report your team’s finds. 

 

Registration and $10 administrative fee payment required.

 

 

Dec 10: Holiday Party

Our Annual Holiday Party is on the calendar again, on Friday evening, December 10. We are back out at the Village of The Hills Lakeway clubhouse, and it promises to be another great evening of fun, prizes, raffles, silent auction items, awards, and general frivolity. Once again, we ask each couple attending to bring an unused, unwrapped children’s gift to donate to Toys for Tots program with the Lakeway Police Dept. 

 

Registration and dinner ticket fee payment required.

 

 

Dec 11: Tech Session at Porsche Austin

The Porsche Austin Tech Session is back!  The re-scheduled tech session for Hill County will be held on Saturday, December 11, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Porsche Austin will provide snacks, drinks, and door prizes. 

 

A trio topics will be covered: 
(1) an overview of popular options currently available; 
(2) an illumination of the Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission; and
(3) the history surrounding some dealer exclusive classic models.

 

The event is now open and attendance is capped at 60 participants, with a non-refundable $10 administrative fee per attendee. Before the event, attendees will be divided into three groups (A, B, & C) to rotate through the presentations.

 

If registration exceeds 60, Stacey will run a waitlist. Waivers will be required, and attendance cannot be confirmed until you verify your signature for the waiver through ClubReg.

 

 

Looking Back

 

Oct 10: Porsche / Ferrari Car Show and Concours

Porsche vs. Ferrari Concours and Car Show was a HUGE success! Ginormous turnout, from what I’ve been told. HCR showed up and showed strong . . . we like it like that! Thanks to John Brindley and his corps of volunteers for putting forth a very special, stellar event. And many thanks to the team at Moorespeed for surfacing the idea and hosting our event. You guys are the best!!

 

 

Oct 16: Cars, Coffee and Croissants

Mozart’s Coffee Roasters hosted this HCR event and it was, from one participant, “tremendous”. The event was such a success that we are considering making this a regular annual event for our club. Many thanks to Amber Ashey, HCR Special Events Coordinator, for her tireless drive in putting this together. We had upwards of 75 attendees, and almost that many P-Cars show up. Everyone had a great time, and I’m happy to report that HCR “showed up and showed well”. 

 

 

Oct 23-24: Overnight Tour to Rockport

I just returned from this overnighter, and I have to say it was really a great trip. We had 7 P-Cars and about 13 participants. Go check out our posts on FB to see what you missed. The food and camaraderie was first-rate. Many thanks to our Tourmaster, Chris McChesney, for his persistence in developing the idea and delivering a special event!

 

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 where members can choose their level of participation. We will continue to stress safe and fun events!  

 

If any questions or comments, please let me know.
