Mid November 2022


Well, it appears the holidays are fast upon us.  Time for for families, fun and if you are anything like me way too much holiday indulgence.  Not to offer spoilers for 2023 but I think my New Years Resolution will be to lose the holiday cookie weight.

If you’re able to enjoy the holiday fare with more self control than I apparently possess; we may just have a few ideas for how to enjoy the holidays with your chosen family of Porsche lovers. The ARPCA 2022 Holiday Part is this Saturday,  The Porsche Touring Crew is wrapping their year at the Log Cabin in on December 6th, and the Women of ARPCA are shopping downtown on the 7th, including the Winter Wonderland Holiday Shoppes in Market Square.  I am sure they’ll be some spiced cider and cookies available somewhere, call it a hunch.

For those of you with hard to shop for friends and family don’t forget the Mart for unique holiday gift opportunities, TwoEight Printing has great wearable gifts, and if all else fails type “Porsche Ornament” into the search bar at Etsy.  They even have a 914 Speedometer ornament check it out here 


Here’s to seeing you out there,

Porsche Touring Crew – December 6th

PTC Celebrates Holidays, Friendship
With Festive Holiday Trek to Zelienople

The Touring Crew has developed a reputation as a catalyst for developing solid, open friendships among P-Car aficionados, in part by welcoming new friends into the group’s events.  So — with the spirit of this quote in mind, and the still-fresh memory of last December’s gathering, PTC has decided to return to the intimate holiday environment of the Log Cabin Inn in Zelienople on Tuesday, December 6th to close out a full year of PTC luncheons.

The Crew will convene in the Log Cabin’s newly-expanded parking lot on December 6th, between 11 and 11:30 am to meet old (and new) friends (and explain nothing [!]) – then move into our private room in the Log Cabin Inn.
