Early May 2024

 

Greetings and Salutations,

Safety is important whether you’re at home, at play, or on the job. How about we take safety to the next level? I hear you and you’re asking, “But how?” That’s a totally reasonable question and the answer is obvious. Participate in Wear Your Helmet To Work Day!  This May 3rd have the safest day ever by wearing your snazziest protective gear during your 9 to 5.  This safety conscious behavior could net you a brand spanking new helmet to wear next year, see details via the link above.  If you do choose to participate and document with a safety selfie, we’d love to see it here.  I can’t think of anything more mirthful than a gallery of behelmeted (is that even a word? It is now!) APRCA members in the wild.  Don’t have a helmet? You are in luck there becuase are currently a few helmets available on the Mart! A special thanks to the ARPCA member who shared this event, you know who you are!

If you’re looking for some more traditional venues to wear your safety gear, you might want to check out the write-ups below.  Brunch at The Lot might not require PPE but if you happen to pair your eggs benedict with a helmet, we’d love to see it and can pretty much guarantee your submission will end up featured on the main page

Rundschau Corrections

The Rundschau Editor wishes to convey the following corrections for the April issue:

  • Page 6 – The QR Code in the HPDE Mid-Ohio ad doesn’t work. An updated QR Code appears in the May issue.
  • Page 14 – The photo caption should have read “Winning #7 Porsche 963 out in front of the Cadillac. Photo by Dave Green, flagtoflagphotography.com.” The website was misspelled in the print edition.
  • Page 16 – Andy Schor’s name was misspelled in the Officers past and present photo caption.
  • Page 20 –  The Porsche Trivia semi-crossword puzzle for clue 24 across was missing the box for the last letter of the answer.

The Editor regrets any confusion caused by these errors.

Porsche Touring Crew – Iron Bridge Inn – May 28th

This May the Porsche Touring Crew is heading north to Mercer, PA. For the first time ever we will lunch at the Iron Bridge Inn, one of eight Springfield restaurant locations.

Sign up early if you plan to attend this lunch. Due to the size of the restaurant, we have a firm limit of 26 for lunch. Additionally, with restrictions they impose, we are going to order on arrival from a limited lunch menu. The details are yet to be worked out on the menu and it depends on what is on the spring lunch menu. We do expect to have offerings of beef, fish, and salad(s). They do not allow separate checks for larger groups, so we will be charging $25.00 when registering.  The charge covers the meal, gratuity, and tax and includes a non-alcoholic drink. They will have an open cash bar. We will be passing the “oil can” to collect a contribution to support our 2024 charity, Tunnel2Towers Foundation.
