The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from MIKE McNULTY, CPA-PCA President
Hello, Central Pa members, guests and visitors,
Well, fellow members, it looks like we have turned the corner and better weather is right around the bend. It can’t come soon enough as we have our 2015 Swap event on April 18th. Look for many updates on the Swap web page and check your email for information on this year’s event. Along with it being our biggest event of the year it’s also our club’s 50th anniversary in 2015. Check in at the registration tent when you arrive as we will be offering the special 50th anniversary car badge and the PCA car sticker from PCA National celebrating this amazing milestone in the club’s history. We will also be offering the ladies a 50th Anniversary compact. Both of these items will be available shortly from the web site but we have not gotten that far since we had to cancel the March club meeting due to inclement weather. Check the Sprecher and the web for details. Once they are gone we will decide if we need to place another order based on demand.
CPA will also be hosting the Zone 2 bi-annual meeting on Sunday, April 19th. There will be a social after the swap at the Hollywood Casino for cocktails and dinner. If you are interested in coming please contact me for details. If you’ve volunteered for the Swap in the past check your emails, as Rick Geiner will be reaching out to our past volunteers for times and assignments for this year’s event. Let’s hope we have the same kind of weekend we had last year!
Cars and Coffee had a breakfast in March on the 14th with a drive over to the AACA museum. The museum is a great place to spend the day and to look at all of the amazing cars right in our regions backyard. Also upcoming with Cars and Coffee will be the Carlisle Import Show Event in May. Check the Sprecher in April for the date and meeting place for this nice upcoming event. PCA will also be advertising this in Porsche Panorama. Look for that ad in the April edition.
The Autocross calendar has been updated with a late March date and an early April date along with our Swap AX on the 19th of April.
The Autocross calendar has been updated with a late March date and an early April date along with our Swap Autocross on the 19th of April. We are still working with HERCO to secure more slots on the Giant Center lot, but we may also explore other venues to have more dates in the summer months. Again check the website as these dates might become available on short notice as we move into the spring and summer months ahead. It’s been another long winter and I am looking forward to seeing all of our autocross friends this year. The BOXSTER BOYS will be again pushing for bragging rights for the 2015 season. Eric, Paul, Bill and I have a friendly race within a race every time we are all together running the cones. Good fun had by all the elder BOXSTER BOYS at each event.
Sun Motors and Steve Baun had a great turnout for Intro to DE in March. Thanks again to Sun and Steve for hosting this event. I have had the pleasure to have attended this event is past years and was able to gain allot of valuable information about DE. If you are interested in DE please check the web site and email Steve Baun for dates and details. Try out a DE or an AX you will be glad you did as both are wonderful ways to improve driving skills and make some new friends. Check out all of the great vendors at the Swap this year. Many of them have all of the items you might need to participate in either event.
We did not have a formal March meeting because of bad weather on that Tuesday night. We will meet again on our normal schedule in April.
The club meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at the Lancaster Liederkranz. Good food great beer great company. Don’t miss an opportunity to see how the club runs. We have an Executive Board and directors/members meeting each month. with the general membership invited.
Think about attending and think about some activities you’d like to see in 2015. We have some nice events coming up. Check out the NYC Auto Show and the Swap in April. As we move into the summer we have our Crab Feast and in the fall our polo match but we would love to hear from you if you have any other ideas. As always please feel free to contact me either via phone or thru email.
For those members that reached out to me about the 50th Anniversary car badge, please be patient, we are still working through how to get them out to members that did not attend the holiday party. More to come on these great looking badges.
Be safe, be well.
