The 17th annual Porsche 928 Frenzy is set to take place on Sept. 28, 2013 (that’s right: “9/28”) at Odds and Ends Detailing in Sterling, Virginia. We will begin with breakfast at 9AM followed by two tech sessions. At noon, participants will have two choices. Some will elect to participate in a “Fun Run” out to Lovettsville, VA for the town’s annual Oktoberfest where we will participate in a German car show with other Porsche owners and enjoy German food and beverages. Alternatively, folks can stay at Odds and Ends for lunch catered by Panera and then learn all about the new "Street Class" concours from George Michaels. One lucky winner ($5 raffle) will have his car chosen to be prepped by George for "Street Class" that afternoon as part of the demonstration.

Last year we had 55 car owners and 22 guests at the Frenzy and we all had a great time. Hopefully the entourage from Canada will be coming down again! Hope to see you there. Check out more details at the Frenzy web site www.928frenzy.org

Registration is not open yet, but should be up and running early this week.

My first BIG 928 event EVER was Frenzy 2 (II)! It was awesome! Back in the day!! '98 I think it was. I wonder how many 928 fans that were there still have their 928's?

umm..............why do you want to wait for Frenzy to do that? Fairly quick job. But I and others can lend a hand I'm sure. I'm commuting to/from the site though.

i know its quick job, from what i've read, i figure it'd be safer to do when there are some knowledgeable 928'ers around, in case something doesn't seem right. thats the paranoid in me.

Room booked at the Holiday Inn. Little higher rate but it's worth staying there especially if you plan to have a few drinks, Friday and Sat nights. ;)

Now to register.

The $69 group rate we've got for the Holiday Inn is actually pretty good for the DC area. Our initial block of 25 rooms was recently filled. So, I had them add additional rooms today.

Book your room and register for the event by going to the 928 Frenzy web site at http://www.928frenzy.org/

You can get a replacement kit. I believe it is the same kit for the 911. BUT it appears to be a tedious, not so simple effort to do it. I need to do it too as mine is running but VERY slow. I just can't bring myself to pull the POD again right now.... maybe next year.

Only 11 days to go until Frenzy time! If you want to attend the 928 Frenzy in person or want to order a Frenzy shirt, now is the time to register. Last call!

http://928frenzy.org/reg.html

The shirt order will be placed on Thursday. If you don't register today or tomorrow you probably won't get a shirt, or if you do, it may not be the size you want.

Registration for this year's 928 Frenzy has been very strong. We have 72 car owners registered and 25 guests. I see a lot of new names on the registration list. So, this is going to be a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other car owners. The weather forecast is looking great, and I'm looking forward to a fun weekend!

Registration is now closed, and the shirt order was placed last week, but we do have a few extra shirts on hand (Med., Large, and XL) in case we have a few late registrants.

What an amazing turnout! We had about 70 cars at this year's Frenzy and close to 100 attendees and guests! At lot of people worked together prior to and during the event to make it a success. Just like the 928OC, the 928 Frenzy runs off of volunteer horsepower. Special thanks to Kevin Lacy, Bruce Bade and J.P. Thal-Larsen for putting in hours of pre-event work. At the event, people like Fraggle and Bertrand's wife, Chantal, stepped in to help out as needed. Way to go, everyone!

Below is the requisite 928OC banner photo at the registration desk. Pictured from left to right are Chantal, my son, James, and yours truly. (Yes, the little boy that used to be waist-high running around at Frenzy is now 14 years old and as tall as his dad.)

Attendance figures:
OC member = 40
Non-member = 34
Guests = 27
