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!”

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

Saturday August 13th – August Rush Road Rally

Rally Graphic Here to ThereIron Jack and Fast Frank are at it again! They have been busy putting together another whimsical mobile scavenger hunt that will have you enjoying the twisty roads of western Pennsylvania in your Porsche. Our gimmick rally’s are always a fun endeavor to enhance the bond with your Porsche (maybe not so much with your spouse / significant other…). The event will have you following precise route instructions as you look for answers to route confirming questions that will take you on a beautiful summer drive through the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania.

Our gimmick rally’s are low-key, non-timed events that will take two to three hours to complete. The rally will end at a restaurant where you will enjoy telling the trials and tribulations of your drive with friends over lunch. Following lunch, Iron Jack and Fast Frank will bestow awards among the top finishers.

Saturday September 17th – ARPCA Car Control Clinic – 11th Annual

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 the past two years, we tried a different format that was well-received and successful.
