Hey fellow 928ers, I'm a returning member of the club and long time 928 owner.

There is solid interest in getting a bunch of 928's up to the Porsche Parade in Michigan, June 23 - 29.

A thread exists on Rennlist for people to discuss their participation, ideas for get togethers, lodging and finding a common Parking/Corral/Meeting spot at the event.

Feel free to go there to participate and be sure to mention it to your 928 friends.

The roads of Northwest Michigan are absolutely stunning (twisty/hilly) and an absolute blast to drive on. So far over a dozen Sharks are heading up.

Hope to see you there!

Dave

My Pleasure,

Our focus for now is having a 928 Corral at the event, (complete with 928 OC banner's). This would give us a centralized meeting point at the event and continue supporting enthusiasm for 928's at the "National Level".

Regards to all!

Hi James,

Any luck with the PCA contact that may help us set up a 928 corral? PM me her contact info and I'll be on her like a shark at a feeding frenzy!

With some manners of course...

Oh my, thanks for the reminder. The person who I know and you can get an in with perhaps is Caren Cooper... you can probably find her name and contact info among the PCA leadership page in the back of Pano. She was president of my region a few presidents after me. Really nice lady. Tell her I sent you.

If I come across her or her email I'll get hold of her too... Perhaps between the two of us we can get something done! Shoot me a PM or email to reminder if you don't hear from me on this matter in the next week or two.

HELP!

I have been unable to find any of the 928 OC banners for use in establishing a common meeting point at the 2013 Porsche Parade.

James has attempted to locate the banners without success...

Does anyone have an electronic file of the artwork so I can have some made up?

I'll do it at no cost to the club if someone will send the file via a pm...

Thx

I am not sure why you are having a problem. When I turned over the tracking of this, the following people all had banners:
James Morrison
Wally Plumley
Roger Tyson
Gary Knox
Mike McLeod
Dave Kowalewsky
Neil Harman
Francois Greyling
Rick Sobek
Dave Tassinari

Thanks Stan,

It is a busy time of year so I understand the delay in locating and shipping the banners.

That is why I am seeking the electronic file so I can simply make a set or two up for the event. Worst case scenario is that I steal the graphic off the website...

I feel like Ben Stein in Ferris Buellers Day Off "Anyone? Anyone?"

Please send me an email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., I will connect you with someone. Teri Knebel puts an effort in to ensure that our look and logo is consistent, so would not be in favor of you creating your own copies.

Any chance you would be willing to take on the role of coordinator of the banners in the future? Fairly simply process, track who has them, have them mailed to the next event coordinator when needed. I have a simple spreadsheet for handling the task, and would confirm all the current holders (as I did for the current coordinator).

Hello all, been a while for me logging onto this site, can barely keep up w/ others, but something told me to do so.

I have the 928OC Banner in MI we use each year in Aug. at our Sharks In Hell event and we will be doing that once again this year too (number 8).

Kristine and l be heading up North for that entire week, we will bring the OC Banner with us.

However were not staying the entire week in TC, I have a house up North and will travel over to TC, we may stay over a few nights depending on the activities.

I keep hearing about a "corral", and I'm a bit confused as I understand it if your not a PCA member and are not registered for the event than you can not participate in ANY of the events and all are closed to the public.

The Concourse on Monday is open to the public, however your not going to get on the Golf course with unregistered event cars, right?

Parking in TC is not going to be easy especially for a group, I spoke w/ Kurt about meeting up with others on Saturday to watch the Parade at a meeting place and bring the Banner and hanging it from trees in a State Park???
The Parade of Porsche is on the Final weekend of the event and the Start of the Cherry Festival and by then we may have had our fill of TC traffic, just saying.

I will be at the Concourse on Monday for sure and most likely the Sunday before to scope out parking on Monday.
I did not registered for the event, $200 bucks for a one day parking spot did not seem worth it once the main hotel was booked.

So just let me know, we will be in one of our two sharks, the Blue 85 or the Gold 86.5 depending on the weather.

Dave,

Great to hear from you! Stan made a great effort to get me a banner and I am glad that you have it...

You are correct that we will not have a corral on site. PCA correctly denied our request as this is a formal event for registered cars only.

Kurt did post a site on the Rennlist forum with a location for meeting up in the state park. I am going to attempt to drive down there tomorrow and check it out. From what I can see this will be a bit of a renegade event of our own and it should be fun.

I am new to the midwestern 928 scene and am hoping to clear my schedule so I can spend at least the Friday/Saturday period at the "Hell" eventhttp://forums.928oc.org/vbulletin/images/smilies/smile.gif

From here forward, lets keep the discussion on the Rennlist forum for this event.

Thanks Stan and all who helped get the banner here!

Regards,

Dave
