ANNOUNCING THE NEW ARPCA FACEBOOK PAGE

Thanks to the efforts of our new Social Media Director, Christine Plummer, ARPCA is proud to announce the introduction of our new Facebook page.

Check it out and “Like” us at “Porsche Club of America – Allegheny Region”.

The Facebook page is the official home of ARPCA on Facebook and provides up-to-date communications to club members about club activities and announcements. It is another resource for club members in addition to the ARPCA website (arpca.com), the Rundschau newsletter and our email blasts.

We are excited that this new communication platform will help us to better reach our more than 1,100 primary and affiliate members.

Please note: Many club members are also members of the Facebook Group “Allegheny Region Porsche Club of America ARPCA”. ARPCA does not own that group, and is not responsible for the content that is posted there.

2019 ARPCA Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix

July 19th, 20th, 21st

Plan to attend the 37th annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with ARPCA.  Join hundreds of your fellow club members, guests from other regions, and friends as we gather on “Porsche Field” in Schenley Park to enjoy our cars, vintage races and the camaraderie that defines PVGP weekend.  Now is the time to register and mark this event on your calendar. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is our club’s largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds donated through the PVGP charity to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School.

This year promises to be an outstanding event with new amenities geared toward making your experience more enjoyable.  The club’s PVGP Committee is planning a streamlined check-in process where attendees register through Motorsport Registration (MSR) and receive an email from PVGP_Reg@arpca.com with their dash plaque and QR code “ticket” as attachments.  As members drive up to the Porsche corral, we will scan the QR code and have your wrist bands, raffle ticket, and PVGP program pre-staged at the Registration tent.  The club will also feature a Dining tent complete with linen tablecloths and new catering partner, Mission BBQ.  In addition, the Full Weekend Package has been discounted for 2019 while the balance of registration options remains unchanged from previous years.

Remember, you must Pre-Register to guarantee a spot in Porsche Field.  Parking is limited to 250 cars.  With increasing attendance and large contingent from the Chicago Region this year, space is limited.
