Early January 2024

 

Welcome to 2024,

The beginning of a whole new year.  Congratulations on another successful journey around the sun which according to our friends at NASA, is a mere 92,956,050 miles.  This works out to between 12,394 and 9,295 oil changes using current recommendations (7,500 – 10,000 miles) – that’s a lot of oil.  Let’s hope no one gets the bright idea to add this milage to insurance costs or to count it against warranties.  At the moment  we’re currently at about 1,015,913 miles into our newest trip – based on a date of 1/4.

In the realm of more manageable distances, we have the two upcoming monthly meetings, the mid-winter party at Blackout Tinting, and the PTC at the Angelo’s.  There are details below. There has also been rumor of a new member profile feature to roll out in the near future.  Who knows, you just might find yourself featured here!

Thanks for sharing the miles here with us,

Shawn Cressler – Web Support. Sharon Lunney – Newsletter Editor.

Porsche Touring Crew 2023 Charity Donation

ARPCA and the Porsche Touring Crew has made a contribution of $1,310.20 to Anchorpoint Counseling Ministry.

This is the charity that was selected for 2023 by PTC.  They help individuals, couples, and families of all age groups.  Their counseling includes issues such as depression, marriage relationships, abuse, addictions, and many more areas of need in the northern area of Allegheny County.  Thank you all PTC members who made voluntary contributions at the lunches in 2023.  PTC will continue in 2024 to have lunch gatherings and will offer members a chance to support a charity.

Porsche Touring Crew – Angelo’s – Tuesday, February 27th

The Porsche Touring Crew (PTC) starts the 2024 Tuesday lunch season with our mid-winter lunch.  The diehard Porsche fans with sports cars and those with SUV’s will be able to take their cars out, or bring whatever you want, as we begin the year with a return to Angelo’s restaurant in Washington PA.  Many of the PTC members will remember the memorable lunch we had at Angelo’s in 2022.  This well-known and highly recommended restaurant  has been a fixture in Washington since its founding in 1939 on Chestnut Street.  It has moved out of town to a shopping district, but is still owned by the same family.  Put February 27th on your calendar and join us at noon for lunch.  If you can’t make that date check the calendar for locations starting in April for PTC lunches on the 4th Tuesday of the month.
