President’s Welcome to New Members

MikeBryanPresidentI’m delighted to welcome you as a new member of the Porsche Club of America, Upper Canada Region. Porsche Club of America is a not-for-profit car club run by its members for its members with 141 local branches, called “Regions” across North America. You are now a member of the club through its Upper Canada Region which covers most of Ontario except the Ottawa Valley, and you are in the good company of 3,400 other “UCR” members and affiliates.

You’ve already chosen an exceptional vehicle to drive and now you’ve joined the club, many new options open up for you to get the most enjoyment from your Porsche. We recognize the wide range of different interests and time availability of our members and our activities reflect this. A lot of them are primarily social and enjoyed by couples, families and individuals alike. Here are some examples of what’s in store:
 
Monthly Socials         2nd Tuesday of every month. A great way to break the ice and meet other members in an informal social setting. There’s always food served and often an informative, entertaining guest speaker.

Fun Runs                     Meet up with other club members for planned drives through Ontario’s beautiful countryside with scheduled stops for coffee and lunch. So simple – just register, show up and have fun.

Driver Education          If you want to learn how to get the best from your Porsche while improving your driving skills, sign up here reg.pcaucr.org for our one-day Introductory Driving School and then on to our Driver Education weekends at CTMP (Mosport). You’ll be safe in the hands of our highly skilled instructors as you develop your skills on this great track.

Autocross                    Another way to improve your driving skills is to spend a morning developing control and balance as you weave through various configurations of cones. Great fun and quite addictive.

Monthly Magazines      Lots of useful Information, pictures and stories in “Panorama”, from head office and “Provinz” from your own Upper Canada Region.

Web Sites                     Check out our own UCR web site at www.pcaucr.org  for up to date news, information and classified ads. See also our parent’s web site www.pca.org , where you can learn what’s going on across N America and access your own membership record.

I could go on, since there are many more exciting activities that fill our calendar, but for now let me just encourage you to make the most of your membership by putting your toe in the water and coming out to join the friendly mix of individuals and couples of all age groups and backgrounds that you’ll find at any of the events I’ve mentioned. We stand by our motto, “It’s not just the cars – it’s the people”. It’s certainly exciting to be among a convoy of Porsches on a Fun Run or in a parking lot, but the real enjoyment comes from having fun with such a great bunch of people.

I’d love to hear from you personally and hope that you’ll join us at a club event soon.

Mike Bryan
