Cars ‘n Coffee

Our new chair, Ed Clowser is on top of things!

A Cars N Coffee is planned for January21, 2023 at Famous Anthony’s, Williamson Rd, Roanoke Virginia starting at 9:30am.  New for 2023 registration (free) is being done through Motorsportreg in the same manner for all region events.

From our Outgoing President

Thank you Reid for your excellent leadership.

Treffen Georgia Mountains

Registration for Treffen Georgia Mountains at the Barnsley Resort will open on WED 4JAN23.  Treffens are very popular and this one is expected to sell out very quickly (less than 10 minutes is likely). The location is within a reasonable distance of where we live and the location promises some great driving roads. PCA has reserved the entire resort so everyone there will be a club member!  All of the details are on the Treffen North America website. The most important message is to have a gameplan of what you want to sign up for and be on-line when registration opens.

Parade Phase 1 Registration

Parade Phase 1 Registration will open up on WED 1FEB23.  Phase 1 gets you registered for Parade and to reserve a room.  Since Parade is in Palm Springs, CA next year, I expect participation from Zone 2 will be reduced – but the decision time is coming soon!

Tech Tactics East

Tech Tactics East is back post-Covid and will be in Easton PA on SUN 19FEB23.  Registration will open on WED 18JAN23.

Werks Amelia Island

Werks Amelia Island is 4MAR23 and in coordination with the Amelia Island Concours.  This is a great event within reasonable reach of our members.  Registration opened on 14DEC23 and will likely sell out.
