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.

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!”
