Message from the President

Heart O’ Dixie Region, Porsche Club of America

2012 is recorded in our Club’s Archives as the highlight of Club activities over the past 52 years; our membership reaching an all time high of 284 and 80 attending our 10th Annual Talladega Grand Prix Raceway Driver’s Education.

We scheduled a variety of activities last year that appealed to everyone, including eight Saturday morning Pit Stop breakfasts at the Cracker Barrel and Little Libby’s; eleven Thursday night Dinner Meetings at the Little Libby’s, the Outback, Simp McGhee’s, and 1892 East; eleven Saturday tours to the Miss Bobo’s in Lynchburg, Ricatoni’s in Florence, the Chickamauga National Battlefield, Gorham’s Bluff, Franklin’s Cars & Coffee, the Rattlesnake Saloon in Tuscumbia, the Lawrenceburg District Fair, the Natchez Trace and Leiper’s Fork, and two overnight tours, one to the Tail of the Dragon and Fontana Village and the other to Helen, Georgia with parade laps around the Atlanta Motorsports Park enroute.

We also conducted our 4th annual Tech Session at Club-sponsor Freddie Louis Auto Accessories followed by complementary lunch for 32 members at Dreamlands Barbecue.

33 club members attended outside the Region events including the Smoky Mountain Spring Thing, the Carolina Sommerfest, the Peachstate Rennfest, the Porsche Parade in Salt Lake City, and the Escape weekend in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

The departure of Jim Cambron, our President for the past seven years for the PCA National Staff position as Zone 3 Representative led to a switch-up in our 2013 Club Officers. Bill Trevey, the past Vice President for Membership, accepted the position as Club President,

Randy Johnson became the new Executive Vice President, and Karen Trevey remained as the Secretary/Treasurer. Jim Cambron accepted the Vice President for Membership position, one that he previously held in 2003-2005. Kenny Raines remained for a second term as the Chief Driving Instructor, Jim Covington agreed to a 7th term as Webmaster, Randy Carter agreed to an 8th term as Technical Chairman, and Karl Ebert agreed for a 5th term as Safety Stewart.

We have an equally exciting year planned for 2013 with the 11th Annual DE at TGPR scheduled in April. We will have a Pit Stop breakfast, Membership Dinner meeting, and Saturday Day-tour scheduled every month, as well as many of our members planning to attend the Tennessee Region’s Winterfest in Chattanooga this coming February, the Smoky Mountain Region’s Spring Thing near Pigeon Forge, the Carolina Region’s Sommerfest in Greenville, SC, and the Peachstate’s Rennfest in Young-Harris, GA. Additionally we will have attendees at the National Porsche Parade in Traverse City, Michigan.

Now that you’ve got that Porsche, the very best way to enjoy it is to bring it out to some of our Porsche activities where you can enjoy it in the fellowship of like-mind Porsches enthusiasts. Like Ferry Porsche said: “You can’t tell what makes a Porsche special by just driving it around the block!”
