Porsche Touring Crew – October 2021

PTC Announces Mid-Fall Itinerary;
Third-Try Jaunt to Mountaineer Center

“Third time lucky…” is an old British expression that describes something that’s worth pursuing after other attempts have failed.

After two Covid-19 “sidetracks” in 2019 and 2020, on Tuesday, October 26, the Porsche Touring Crew will make its third run at visiting West Virginia University and its Erickson Alumni Center, located on the school’s Evansdale campus.  The Erickson has invited PTC travelers to enjoy a catered lunch in one of its VIP rooms, and get a glimpse of what  Mountaineer life is all about.

Porsche Touring Crew – September 2021

PTC To Heed Twain’s Advice
On September Trip to Nevillewood

Mark Twain, the celebrated American author, entrepreneur and humorist, once quipped, “Golf is a good walk spoiled.”

Porsche Touring Crew members plan to take that warning to heart.  On September 28, they’ll be happily skipping golf, and walking straight from their dedicated parking spots to PTC’s private lunch on The Club at Nevillewood’s covered patio – without even thinking about keeping score! Read more

Member Submission -J Jamison

I drove to Indianapolis from Erie for the Sports Car Together Festival put on by Porsche and the PCA with my wife, Kristy, and my two little boys, Jack and Alex, in the 911 – and had a great time. We were fortunate to be allowed 8 laps of the F1 course including the front stretch of Indy at speed with my two boys in the back. It was a really awesome experience for all of us. We are pictured standing on the back stretch of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the staging area before our laps.
