Cars at the Movies @ The Screening Room Cinema
Mar 30 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Member cost including dinner is $15/person payable at the door. Please RSVP to Hank Beamer by March 22nd, so that we can plan the food accordingly

Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of a great sporting rivalry between handsome English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth), and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Bruhl). The story follows their distinctly different personal styles on and off the track, their loves and the astonishing 1976 season in which both drivers were willing to risk everything to become world champion in a sport with no margin for error: if you make a mistake, you die. (runtime – 2 hours)

Tire Rack Street Survival for Teens* @ Xerox
Apr 6 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

All Schools $95.

Several group driving events are being planned this season for early Porsche cars. These include the 356, any long hood 911/912 (1964-1973) and all 914s.

April’s group drive will take us from a 10AM meet-up at Terry Hills in Batavia and wind south toward Naples with lunch at Naples Valley BBQ. We will stop along the way for morning coffee in Mt. Morris and afternoon ice cream at Minnehan’s in Lakeville. From there, Rochester and Buffalo groups can choose separate return routes.

Tech Inspection @ Eksten Autoworks
May 1 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Tech Inspections are mandatory for anyone attending our Driver Education events, and strongly recommended for anyone planning to Autocross. In addition, all Porsche owners are more than welcome to have their cars inspected. This is a terrific way to ensure your car is ready for the driving season.

At a tech inspection your car will be put on a lift, wheels will be removed, and a general check-up of your cars road and/or track worthiness will be performed. Some of the items checked are suspension components, safety systems, belts and hoses, fluids, bearings, brakes, tires and wheels, and exhaust system. Links to the actual Tech Inspection form, and the Rules & Regulations, can be found on the Driver Education page of the Niagara PCA website.

Tech Inspections are first come first served, so arrive early. Drivers are expected to assist in removing and replacing their own wheels, so please dress appropriately. Of course, there will be plenty of people on hand to assist. Anyone interested in helping at either of the Tech Inspections can contact Mike Zotter. Assistance is always greatly appreciated!

Zone 1 – Porsche Clash* @ Watkins Glen International
May 31 @ 8:00 am – Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm

Join us for the 18th Annual CLASH AT THE GLEN CLUB RACE  May 31, & June 1, 2, 2019.

Hosted by the Regions of Zone 1 at Watkins Glen International Raceway in Watkins Glen, NY

Established in 2001 as part of the Porsche Club of America Club Racing Program, “The Clash at the Glen” is an event you must attend, either as a racer or as a volunteer.  Held at the historic Watkins Glen Race Track, nestled in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, this track is one that cannot be missed. There will be almost 300 racing Porsches!!  This is one of the biggest Porsche racing events in the country. The three day event is free for club members (bring your club membership card to get in the gate)  and is great chance to get see Porsche racing up close with open access to the paddock and pits. And another great reason to go: there are 10 or so racers from the Niagara Region who will be racing at the three day event. Let’s support our region!!
Held in late May/early June, this event is one where racers must register early.  Being such a historic track and one of the best drives in the country, race classes fill up quickly.  Not only can this race accomodate up to 300 racers, the volunteer effort over 50 volunteers from various Regions throughout the Zone is an effort second to none.   In order to make this event a success every year we rely on the volunteers to make it happen. Without their effort this race would not be possible.  We look forward to seeing you at The Clash this year!

Early registration and hotel reservations are recommended.

Visit the Zone 1 website  for event details.

Held at one of the best and most historic racetracks in the country, the Clash brings together club members for 3 days of fun and exciting racing, which you can be a part of. Volunteers are what enable us to put on one of the best club races in PCA. We encourage you, your family and friends to register as volunteers for this year’s Zone 1 Clash at the Glen Club Race.

“Cars & Coffee” has become a perennial favorite among the local crowd.  Come on out and share a cup of joe and some car talk for a little while on a Saturday morning.

We’ll pick a spot with a Porsche friendly parking lot and a coffee shop and schedule an open event on the first Saturday of each month.

We’ll meet at 9am, have a cup of coffee and donut / muffin / bagel, hang out in the parking lot for an hour or so, and then hit the road. We’ll plan to move it around from month to month.

We’ll do this May through October and will start the evening happy hours again as the weather turns this Fall.

You’ll drive some of the best roads in North America and enjoy top class hospitality at the Woodstock Inn in the charming village of Woodstock. PCA has booked the entire hotel (about 130 rooms), so it will be exclusively ours to enjoy sumptuous dinners and social evenings in this grand, historic venue. After the Wednesday evening Welcome Reception, you’ll be up the next morning to drive on your chosen tour of the six offered. On Friday, you’ll be out again on your second choice of tour, maybe to view the covered bridges of Vermont, to visit Fort Ticonderoga in New York or the historic Vermont Dorset Inn that welcomed its first guests in 1796. Saturday is for just hanging out and exploring Woodstock, or for taking one of the self-guided tours on offer, before heading back for the grand finale dinner and social.

Tech Inspection @ Eksten Autoworks
Sep 11 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Tech Inspections are mandatory for anyone attending our Driver Education events, and strongly recommended for anyone planning to Autocross. In addition, all Porsche owners are more than welcome to have their cars inspected. This is a terrific way to ensure your car is ready for the driving season.

At a tech inspection your car will be put on a lift, wheels will be removed, and a general check-up of your cars road and/or track worthiness will be performed. Some of the items checked are suspension components, safety systems, belts and hoses, fluids, bearings, brakes, tires and wheels, and exhaust system. Links to the actual Tech Inspection form, and the Rules & Regulations, can be found on the Driver Education page of the Niagara PCA website.

Tech Inspections are first come first served, so arrive early. Drivers are expected to assist in removing and replacing their own wheels, so please dress appropriately. Of course, there will be plenty of people on hand to assist. Anyone interested in helping at either of the Tech Inspections can contact Mike Zotter. Assistance is always greatly appreciated!

For the Best in Show re-judging, only Exterior, Interior, and Storage will be considered.

Several group driving events are being planned this season for early Porsche cars. These include the 356s, early 911/912s (1964-1973) and all 914s. These Porsches were the benchmarks of performance for sports cars of the day. Like all Porsches, they are happiest when driven.

The September group drive is Sunday, September 22. We’ll start with a morning meet-up at Tim Horton’s in Warsaw (about an hour drive from both Rochester and Buffalo). From there we’ll travel toward Fillmore, Rushford Lake, Hanging Bog Wildlife Refuge, Black Creek, and then to Angelica for lunch and to visit the street of shops.

Niagara on the Road goes to Road Atlanta @ Road Atlanta
Oct 5 @ 8:00 am – Oct 6 @ 5:00 pm

The HPDE Committee is pleased to announce that Niagara on the Road 2019 will be going to Road Atlanta October 5th-6th! This fabled 2.54 mile road course has been home to Petit LeMans since 1998 and is recognized as one of the world’s best road courses.
Mark your calendars! More information to follow.

Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta is a 2.54-mile (4.088 km) road course located just north of Braselton, Georgia, United States. The facility is utilized for a wide variety of events, including professional and amateur sports car and motorcycle races, racing and driving schools, corporate programs and testing for motorsports teams. The track has 12 turns, including the famous “esses” between turns three and five; and Turn 12, a downhill, diving turn. The track is owned by IMSA Holdings, LLC through its subsidiary Road Atlanta, LLC, and is the home to the Petit Le Mans, as well as AMA motorcycle racing, and smaller events throughout the year. Michelin acquired naming rights to the facility in 2018.  In case you want a little more history, click here.

**Please note: This HPDE event is not sponsored by NRPCA, it is sponsored and hosted by Chin Motorsports, hence it will not be covered by the PCA Insurance program. Also, though some of our participants may be part of an informal caravan to head to and back from the track, those activities are likewise not sponsored by NRPCA and therefore not covered by PCA Insurance.**

Here’s some very pertinent information from Tony Giovinazzo.

The 2019 Niagara On The Road Drivers Ed event is taking shape. The plan is to attend the CHIN Motorsports DE school on October 5 & 6, 2019. There are a few things to know to get registered for the event as well as registering as a driver for CHIN.

The first rule is that CHIN will allow an instructor to instruct at a given track ONLY if they have driven the track before. Since most of us have NOT driven Road Atlanta, our plan is to register and drive as ‘open track’ drivers. We would get 3.5 hours of track time each day.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here is how we go about registering. The link below will take you to CHIN’s website. I would suggest you review all the relevant info about how their schools work. One has to ‘join’ CHIN as a member, which is a $50.00 fee. This fee is a 13 month membership. (if you’ve driven RA before and want to sign up as an instructor, the fee will most likely be waived). Once registered as a member, the next step is to register for the event. Last years fee for the event was $639.00 for the two days. 2019 prices for October have not yet been released. Registration opens eight (8) weeks prior to the event. That puts registration opening somewhere around the week of August 5. They will show ‘registration opens’ dates as the summer gets going and well ahead of opening date. Once known, we will share that date.

From a planning standpoint, we need to be registered as members and then register and pay for the event on opening day or within the first couple of days. I have been assured that this should almost guarantee attendance. If we wait a week or two, the event may be filled up. As always, early registration is best.

If you think you may attend, save the dates. We will establish a mailing list to keep people updated and send reminders about registering as members and drivers. Instructors are available for registrants, but I believe there is an additional fee for that. ($75.00) Once we have an idea on numbers travelling, we can look at travel plans, hotels etc, and, hopefully, secure a block of rooms near the track. Camping is available at the track if you’re interested. Please let Rich or me know if you’re interested and we’ll start the unofficial registration process.

Tire Rack Street Survival for Teens* @ Watkins Glen International
Nov 2 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

The primary emphasis of the Tire Rack Street Survival® is a “hands-on” driving experience in real-world situations! We use your own car to teach you about its handling limits and how you can control them. The students will become more observant of the traffic situation they find themselves in. They will learn to look far enough ahead to anticipate unwise actions of other drivers. As the students master the application of physics to drive their cars, they will make fewer unwise driving actions themselves. They will understand why they should always wear their own seatbelts, and why they should insist that their passengers wear seatbelts, too.

It’s about more than driving – it’s about LIVING!

Three parents, including Scott Goodyear, former Indy Car Champion, share their perspectives in this video.

All Schools $95.

All size socks, hats, mittens, & underwear are always greatly appreciated.
Also always needed:
Peanut butter & jelly, pasta & sauces, canned tuna, rice, beans, canned veggies, canned juices.

Family Help Center – Toys – any age
The Agency was sustained solely through the dedication of time and resources offered by its voluntary team until 1979. The Center’s participation and influence within the local community outgrew Joan Male’s basement in 1980 and, after several moves, now has it permanent home at 60 Dingens Street. The new Center has allowed us to expand and enhance all program components. Along the way, we incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in April, 1978; became a United Way member agency in March, 1984; and opened a specialized New York State licensed childcare center, Family Help Center Daycare (formerly known as Raggedy Ann & Andy Comprehensive Child Care Center) in July, 1998.
The Family Help Center is a “home away from home” for many children and parents. The Center offers a comfortable and nurturing environment for group interaction, child care programming, parent training sessions, family socials and a variety of other functions. We are dedicated to the prevention and interruption of child abuse and neglect in all of its forms — physical, emotional and sexual. Because the maltreatment of children transcends class, gender, race, ethnic and religious backgrounds, there are no eligibility requirements. To ensure the safety of every child, families are never charged a fee for any service we provide, with the exception of our Childcare Center.
Their goal is to give a new toy to each child in their program. Our donation will help make their goal more attainable. 

We will be continuing our tradition of the Charity Raffle. We would like everyone to participate by writing down their favorite charity on the back of their name cards. After dinner, we will put them all in a bowl and select names with their respective charities and then we will distribute checks to those charities chosen. Please have your charity names and addresses available to facilitate this effort.

We have two very deserving organizations this year, thank you in advance for your participation and support in this endeavor.

These donations are in addition to the annual four charities selected by our board members.

This is the time to bring your ideas for 2020. Looking forward to another fun and successful driving season.

This December meeting will be a “Pre-Planning” meeting for the upcoming 2020 driving season. Bring ideas for events you wouldmembers-mtg-2016
like us to host, and your volunteerism to help make them happen. This is the time when many events are flushed out and support for them is determined. If you’d like to have input in to the upcoming season, this is your opportunity.

If you have an event/s that you already know you would like on the calendar, please submit an Event Request form so we can start processing them now. Also, if you have an event that is later in the year, and you are requesting a subsidy, please submit that request prior to February as that is when we determine our budget for the year.

Come on out in the cold weather and let’s think about all the wonderful things we’ll do when it warms up.

Arrive 6:30PM, meeting starts at 7:00PM.

All club members, family, and friends are welcome!

Bistros and Bucolic Drives: Aurora/Skaneateles 2020 @ Union Place Coffee Roasters
May 2 @ 7:30 am – May 3 @ 3:30 pm

This trip will take you on scenic country roads through the Finger Lakes. We begin by traveling to the quaint village of Aurora. There you will choose either a free guided tour of Mackenzie Childs’ Farmhouse, or continue on Scenic Route 90 to Long Point Winery, on the east side of Cayuga Lake. The winery sits on 72 acres with a beautiful view overlooking the lake. After a group tasting of wines or beers and a casual al fresco lunch, we continue our bucolic drive to Beak & Skiff Orchards in Lafayette for a private hard cider or spirits tasting and specialty apple desserts and cheeses, including maple bourbon pecan pie! We then head to Skaneateles and check in to the historic Sherwood Inn in the heart of the village [room rate includes breakfast]. Then it’s time on your own to enjoy the vibrant downtown shops of Skaneateles, located on the south shore of the Lake before the group meets to dine at Joelle’s Bistro, where Paris-trained chef Joelle and partner Alain will delight with charming ambiance and exquisite food.  Here’s an interesting article on the history of Joelle’s.  A wide range of restaurants, shops, and other activities in the village of Skaneateles suits every interest.

The maximum number for this event is 15 couples or 30 people, and once reached, this event is closed. Please contact Lisa at lpaine59@gmail.com if you wish to sign up, for more information and for the hotel booking code. The group block room rate will be honored until February 28, 2020 for this event.

Chili Run to Letchworth @ Letchworth State Park - North Highbanks Pavilion 1
Oct 17 @ 9:00 am – 3:45 pm

photocropThis event is RAIN OR SHINE! Like last year, we have an enclosed pavilion so if it’s cold and rainy the fire in the fireplace will be cranked by the time everyone arrives so it should be nice and toasty warm.

Join the Niagara Region PCA for a fun scenic drive to Letchworth State Park, the “Grand Canyon of the East”.

8:30am – Meet at  Garber Porsche of Rochester, 3955 W. Henrietta Rd., Rochester, NY 14623. They are hosting breakfast once again this year.

9:30am– Departure for Letchworth State Park. We will tour the park and arrive at the North Lodge at 1:15 for lunch.

The park entry fee is $10. Bring cash.
1:15-3:45pm – Lunch at North Highbanks Pavilion at Letchworth

We are changing things up a little this year, chili and sides will be provided.  We are looking for desserts.  Please bring dessert for about 4-6 people only.  We appreciate the generous response in the past, the leftover food and snacks make for more trash and that is the one issue that we have no real answer for as we have to remove everything from the shelter when we leave. Anything you bring into the park, we would appreciate it if you would take leftovers and extras back home with you. Your help is greatly appreciated.

 

Bring your appetite, hiking shoes, and camera.
