PORSCHE CLUB PARADE WEEK WILL BE HELD JUNE 19-26, 2016 AT OUR OWN JAY PEAK!
Parade is PCA’s most significant annual event. Green Mountain Region takes pride in the fact that this year’s parade is in Vermont, during our 30th anniversary year.
Update (as of April 11, 2016)
Time to register if you haven’t already, and sign up for banquets, meals, and events such as driving tours, the TSD rally, etc.
Go to http://2016parade.pca.org/
Note: all meals and events must be signed up and paid for by June 5. After that, everything is locked in, although they say it is possible to get onto some dinners and events by going to the hospitality center and see who’s giving up tickets. There’s still plenty to do without signing up for events, but this should be done soon.
Call for Green Mountain members to enter their historic cars in the Parade concours:
My name is Mike Keller, and I’m the Concours Chair for the Connecticut Valley Region PCA. I have also been selected as this year’s Historics Chair for Parade. As such, I am seeking special Porsches for Jay Peak’s Historics display.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Historics display, examples of cars for this exhibit may range from a 1957 Carrera GT Coupe, to a 1994 Turbo S Flachbau, to a 2015 918 Spyder Weissach Package (and many others in between!). Vintage race cars up to modern racing cars are also strongly encouraged.
If you have some members who you believe would have fitting cars, I would appreciate any help you may be able to provide in recruiting potential cars for this group.
As always, I am happy to speak over the phone if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your help!
Housing for Parade:
For the most part, housing available during the Phase 1 Registration period is filled. However, there are available condos, houses, B&B’s etc in the area.
From PCA Parade:
Entrants can contact our housing service ConferenceDirect for lodging
options, at email: email@example.com
or call: 877-484-8984
Also, follow this link for a listing:
Members attending Parade are NOT obligated to get housing through ConferenceDirect, which is a third-party contracted by PCA to handle housing in Phase 1.
The following is from Bill Hayman, who has a place at Jay Peak and knows the area.
If members of the Green Mountain (GMT) Region wish to attend, but do not have accommodations, below are two good options below that are not available through the Parade website.
Elaine Thoms, has a luxury chalet with 2 rooms available, suitable for 2 couples, private lounge, and with breakfast. contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Duncan Killmartin, has nice chalet, suitable for 2 or 3 couples, with kitchen. contact : email@example.com
In addition, for GMT members that might want to attend for a day or 2, there are B&Bs and inns in the immediate area of Jay Peak that do have rooms available for a few nights during the week, but because they did not have rooms available for the whole week, Conference Direct would not contract with them as providers. Hence, when members look to the website for accommodations, they are now directed to places as far away as Stowe, Burlington and St. Albans and are left to believe there are none near Jay Peak.
