Mid September 2023



Greetings and Salutations,

It’s that time of year again.  Pumpkin spice everything? Well, yes, but not exactly what we were thinking in this case.  It’s time for a link to a Fall foliage map, that’s what time.  While it might be a little early for local conditions, in approximately two weeks’ time it appears much of New England is forecast to reach its peak colors.  Porsches are made to be driven and whose who’s to say a road trip isn’t in your future?  One last hurrah before winterizing might be the perfect thing.

Smokey Mountain: Fall Foliage Prediction Map

If your travel goals are more local, the ARPCA has plenty to offer.  Details and links below.

Here’s to seeing you out there,

Porsche Touring Crew  – Dutch’s at Silver Tree – September 26th

We are excited to announce that the Touring Crew will be at Dutch’s at Silver Tree restaurant on Deep Creek Lake.

Late September is such a beautiful time for a ride. The air has cooled and the trees are just beginning to show fall colors.

This is not only a beautiful spot but the food is delicious too. Crab Cake sandwich or platter, maybe a caprice salad with crab or how about a burger? Dessert? Can’t miss!! I’ve been coming here for 40 years and I’ll put my personal guarantee on it. I checked MSR today and Dutch’s is already filling up!

There’s a rumor there might be a large multi-day event involving cars in the near future, maybe even some Porsches.  It would be great to have images of ARPCA members enjoying the PVGP. Thank you all in advance!
