The Steering Wheel
President’s Message from STEVE LIMBERT, CPA-PCA President
Summertime and oh yea the living is easy! I trust we are all enjoying our Porsche cars at whatever level we have chosen, being touring, showing or competing at AutoX events or track events. .Or just driving some of the great roads located here in our commonwealth. Years ago when I was still traveling for business I came across rt 6 that runs through some of the most incredible scenes in the north of our state. For sure it's not a day trip but for certain a cool experience.
Our club needs to be extremely proud of our charity giving...which also includes the continued support for two students at Thaddeus Stevens with scholarships for the upcoming year.
Once again our club needs to be extremely proud of our charity giving! Budget folks met previously and determined that we could allocate $30K for the Charity committee to distribute. That committee met and selected 8 charities for considerations, which also included the continued support for two students at Thaddeus Stevens with scholarships for the upcoming year.
Charity Chairman, Don Moore presented a comprehensive evaluation of the charities they selected and a motion was made, seconded and unanimously approved by your board of directors at our June meeting. (yea baby the system works)
My racing adventure continues, running my 914-6GT last weekend out at the newly lengthen Pitt Raceway (old Beaverun) located just north of the Pa turnpike and prior to crossing into Ohio.The track now has really cool elevation changes that are a challenge for sure. The track is now 2.8 miles and has undergone significant improvements with FIA curbing and safe runoff areas. Money has also been spent on pit and paddock upgrades making this a truly first class facility.
Next weekend we plan on going to the Schenley Park Vintage Race. The city closes public roads for two days making this a truly unique event and now the only true street race in the U.S. The event is open to the public at no charge. They have car displays and many car clubs also participate. Usually they have 100K spectators and all monies go to the Autism Society of greater Pittsburgh. Just a neat experience.
At last we are almost up to date with reports from our various committee chairs on how they run their programs. Proper documentation on how we do the work of our club is critical. Our VP Eric will be the keeper of these records. I and your board have charged him with gathering this information.
Please come join your fellow club members for dinner, share stories and learn more about the cars we all love.
As always, TRAVEL SAFE
