A Word from our Leader

What Makes A Great Club

It’s the diverse members that make a great club!  Participating in events, contributing ideas, socializing with other members and supporting our charitable activities are all things that make our club thrive.  Our members have varied interests from social events such as Cars N’ Coffee to track driving (HPDE, racing, Autocross), to concours, to all things technical and more.  Making all of these activities happen takes the time and effort of volunteers and all deserve our gratitude.  Our volunteers step-up to help with specific events, serve on standing committees as committee members and Chairs, and as the Region Officers.  Without volunteers our region would have few events and we lose benefits made possible through our PCA dues.  Have you volunteered to help the club?  There are numerous opportunities to meet your interests, skills and time.   Talk to any BRR-PCA Board Member or email us through our contacts page to learn more and find the right volunteer opportunity for you.

Activities

40th Anniversary Celebration

Our limited seating is filling fast.  Be sure to register soon to ensure you will be on the list!  Come enjoy the member’s car show, enjoy time with friends new and old, savor the upscale meal served in a classy setting and more.  Our speaker for the event who will engage all attendees not just the car people is Cole Scrogham; a leading Porsche restoration expert, race team manager, publisher and more!  

Covid Precautions – All attendees are required to wear masks while indoors except when seated and are strongly encouraged to do so while outside.  We will have an ample supply of masks and hand sanitizer on hand for all.   The catering staff, wearing masks and gloves, will be serving food to attendees as they go through the buffet line, so that the attendees aren’t touching the utensils.  Tables which normally seat 8 will be limited to 6 with a number of tables available to groups of 4 (dependent on final attendee count) to provide space for distancing.

FSR SML Charity Event

Gene Reed reports that they had a fantastic dinner at the Coston’s including a visit to Mr. Cooper’s auto collection nearby. Outstanding Margaritas thanks for Jeff’s 310ci (sorry) 31cc air cooled blender complete with handlebars and throttle. Ten BRR members made up the field of 70.

Saturday, several more BRR members including the Piddler and the Flamingos, joined a 37 car caravan to Rocky Mount Burgers. An impressive site enjoyed by many bystanders.

Next, of course, was a stop at Homestead Creamery where several diets bit the dust.

Kudos to FSR, the Coston’s, George Michaels and Josie for organizing this event and inciting us to join.

CnC – Southern Plenty Cafe – 9/25

Still waiting on the details but apparently it was a success. Many went on to VIR. Dave Hogan sent a picture of the BRR members at the Hagerty Car Show and SVRA races at VIR.

Festival of the Wheel

David Chatntoo sent me this link to the library of beautiful cars at the show a few weeks ago.

Gene Reed reports that one of our members, Hunter Allen, Mark Morrison Sr and KMA Racing won two Sprint Races and one Enduro at Summit Point last weekend. That is a tough class. Congratulations Hunter and Mark.
