PVGP 2016 Final Info

ARPCA.com

It’s that time… PVPG is here!

Thank you for registering for ARPCA’s 2016 PVPG Party in Schenley Park – one certainly for the history books!  Not much has changed from last year’s logistics but the following is worth a quick read whether this is your 1st or 34th PVGP…

 

LOGISTICAL DETAILS FOR ALL – SAT & SUN

  • Parking officially opens 9:30AM each day – all cars should be in place by 11:00AM.  Show officially runs until 4PM
  • Entrance is top of Schenley Drive at Forbes Ave in Squirrel Hill. (5370 Schenley Park Drive, Pittsburgh 15217 – GoogleMaps Link)
  • Volunteers will direct you to proceed down Schenley Drive.
  • Use GATE E – (PVGP Schenley Park Map here) Say hello and thank Eugene Williams and Mark Sheldon at entrance gate to German Hill.
  • ARPCA volunteers in Red T-shirts w/ colorful pool noodles will direct you to a parking spot – please follow their lead as we will be VERY tight with parking this year due to high registration count.
  • After parking, walk to registration table/tent for your packet.
  • Registration Packets – along w/ commemorative program, agenda, lunch wristbands, dash placard, door prize ticket (Sunday ONLY), and concours ballot are two thank you goodies per MSR car registration.
  • Catered lunch – Begins Noon-ish.  Wristbands (Yellow Sat – Orange Sun) are included in your registration packet.  Shortly after lunch will be door prizes, raffle prizes, Concours Winners, etc.

 

CONCOURS

Brian Strohmeier is again running his wildly popular “People’s Choice Concours”.  Everyone registered for Saturday is entered and gets a vote!  Your ballot (pale blue 3×4″ piece of paper) is inside registration packet.  Find your 5 favorite Porsches on green and put their Car # on ballot.  Turn all ballots in to registration table by 12 NOON.  Brian is quoted as saying last night “envelopes full of cash are welcomed… and highly encouraged!”

 

RAFFLES

To help raise additional charity $, Len Richards and Maureen McClure are again running the raffle table w/ goodies from generous club sponsors.  Swing by w/ a donation receiving an arms length of tickets for chances to win VERY cool stuff like: Paradigm Theatre Surround Sound Speakers, Porsche Experience Center Gift Certificates, Porsche Design Knives, Joplin 356 Framed Photo, Photographic Canvas Art, Signed & Framed PVPG Print from Porsche’s 2011 Marque of Year, Watkins Glen Cheeze-It NASCAR Race Tickets, ARPCA Driver’s Ed Event, ARPCA AutoCross Event and MANY more!   Items have been generously donated by club sponsors (in no particular order): Goosebumps, Porsche Cars North America, FastCompanyFraming, Matthew Little Photography, Almart, Sobek Secret Art, 2016Found.com ARPCA and a few more I’m probably remiss not mentioning right now.  Let’s support them as they do us!

 

LINDA BARNICOTT PAINTING

Famed Pittsburgh Artist Linda Barnicott will be on site Saturday (maybe Sunday too) at the registration tent. Rumor has it she’ll have with her the finished original Commemorative ARPCA PVGP 2016 Painting. Come take a look at her outstanding craftsmanship and support her helping the ARPCA / PVGP charities.

 

Phew – that’s a lot…  Sunday is repeat of above, just no concours but there is a door prize raffle for those pre-registered (ticket in your registration packet).

 

One final note:

 

*** WEATHER – WEATHER – WEATHER ***

As promised, weather is shaping up to be spectacular: Sat: 83F – Mostly Sunny and Sun: 87F – Full Sun! Because it’s a golf course, temps will feel about +10F warmer!  So, prepare to stay hydrated and don’t forget your shades, sunscreen, walking shoes, hat and a lawn chair to enjoy and cheer on the contingency of ARPCAers racing this weekend!

In the highly unlikely event there are any weather ‘events’ delaying our party or entrance to golf course, we will post updates if needed at TOP OF EACH HOUR (with time stamp) STARTING 6AM Sat & Sun on ARPCA’s website: www.arpca.com.  EMAILS WILL NOT be sent – Check web for latest info.

 

As always, we appreciate your support and patience of this PVGP Charity Event staffed entirely by volunteers!

 

See you at the races!

~ Ed Rice, ARPCA PVGP Chair

 

PS – Stop out at DoubleWide Grille – Mars, PA this evening for some Porsche Car-maraderie. It’s our 4th Annual PVGP Welcome Party for out-of-towners including the wonderful folks from Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) and the brand new 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster S!

This is a PERFECT opportunity to learn more about you and your car in a controlled environment.  We will be using the Vehicle Dynamic Area (VDA- six plus acres of pavement) to provide an exhilarating educational experience!  The Car Control Clinic is hands-on, in-car training combined with classroom discussion of vehicle and human dynamics. Four hours of in-car instruction is scheduled for students to practice the driving exercises introduced in the classroom. The goal is to introduce students to the skills and sensations associated with controlling a motor vehicle during accident avoidance and defensive driving maneuvers.2012 CCC On the Skid Pad

The Clinic can teach students what typical driving schools can’t: The proper response when something unexpected happens while driving a car – and provide the opportunity to practice these exercises in a safe environment.  This event will sell out for the 11th straight year so do not miss out!

For a larger donation, you can have your car featured in the front rows! You can also have more than one car included. All donors will receive a signed and numbered print. However, the top seven donors will receive an artist-enhanced color archival giclée print worth considerably more. The original work of art will be available for silent auction at the ARPCA tent during this year’s Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (a value of $6,400).
