Our February Social was an intimate evening of good camaraderie, conversation and excellent schnitzel.

We had a sudden change in plans as our speaker, Police Constable Hugh Smith, was unable to attend at the last minute due to a death in his family that day. We extend our condolences to PC Smith. Hugh has offered to speak at one of our Socials at another time and we will rebook.

Also, event chairs discussed their various events and we facilitated a Q and A session. Events profiled included: Fun Runs, Drivers Education, Autocross, Street Survival, Rally, Socials, UCR Ski Day and the Awards Banquet. The town hall style meeting was informative both to new members and members who have yet to try our many other engaging events.

Many thanks to John Adam, Mario Marrello and Saajad Butt for jumping in and profiling their respective UCR events!

Meanwhile, we welcomed new member Keith Jolly, who has now signed up for the Introductory Driving School and is looking forward to driving at the track and bringing his family to CTMP.

Our raffle prizes this month were Porsche clothing including a Porsche flag jacket, t- shirt and fleece vest. A big thank you to Jay Lloyds for donating two Porsche raffle prizes for the evening.

Regardless of the change in plans for the evening, the room was filled with laughter, good conversation and a fun evening of getting to know each other better, all over our favourite car stories. Until next month!
