The annual Absaroka Region’s season kick off meeting is right around the corner. Come and meet up with friends, old and new, and wake your Porsche up from a long winter slumber. Join us on Saturday, April 27th for a … Continue reading
Well, after two days of raking leaves I am convinced fall is here! For me the year seemed to fly by; all that spring rain made for a lot of mowing and weeding but resulted in a bumper crop of … Continue reading
Happy fourth of July everyone! It seems like June was only three or four days long this year it went by so fast but the club enjoyed several events; the Saturday breakfast as usual, Tuesday get together at Oktoberfest have … Continue reading
Winter has finally decided to release her grasp, so we can put away the snow shovels, get out the lawn mowers and best of all our cars! April had another great turnout for breakfast and the tour to Chico last weekend enjoyed a beautiful Saturday drive. As usual the accommodations and the company were top notch. For two couples it was their first “wine cellar” experience and hope to see them again next year. We are still working on details about other events this year and hope to get a final schedule together soon. Great ideas for day trips so far, but always looking for fresh ideas! Our next event is breakfast again, see you there!
Well everyone, it’s time to say goodbye to 2017 and look forward to a new year.
I hope somehow our club left some good memories for all; the great get together at the Krueger’s and Hasbrouck’s, the road trips, and maybe the All Euro Car Show.
For 2018 we will be planning our 40th Anniversary event, we are considering a commemorative mug or glass, and maybe a German car show at Oktoberfest, a local German restaurant. Ideas for this, or any other event are greatly appreciated.
Lastly, while this is a time for family and friends, I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you to think about your car. I’m sure most of them are tucked away snugly for the winter, but now is the perfect time to order that “one little part” or to consider what maintenance needs to be scheduled before the driving season. If the weather allows it wouldn’t hurt to start them up and get those fluids moving. And don’t forget about breakfast at Grains of Montana the second Saturday of January, hope to see you there!
Happy 4th of July,
I have to say that our trip to the Charles Ringer Gallery and Studio was quite amazing. Our drive there was beautiful as always and lunch at the Red Lodge Brewery was very good. The weather was impeccable, then onto the gallery on our way home. Charles Ringer spent two hours with us giving us the grand tour of all three of his studios, the back 40, then onto to the gallery where we were able to see the finished product of several of his pieces. His entire property is scattered with his creative art.
July is Porsche Parade month. We have a great group heading off to Parade, some of us on different days, but we have a small group heading over together on Saturday, July 8th. Please note, I will not be at breakfast, but don’t let that stop you from attending and meeting other members. Hopefully we can all meet for lunch on Monday, July 10th. Tom Moffett has made reservations for us at Anthony’s of Spokane, 510 N Lincoln at 1:00 PM. I hope all of our Absaroka members will be able to make it. The club is buying lunch. I am staying at the Davenport Tower, as well as several of our other members. Hopefully, we can all connect while we are there. I am participating in the Auto Cross on Wednesday, so if you want a good laugh, come watch me!
For our members that are not attending Parade, we have not left you out for events. We have a drive and lunch planned to Cooke City for July 22nd. We have invited the Mustang and Corvette clubs to join us, so we will see how many come along. We will meet at the Holiday Station on Gabel Road at 9:00 AM with a 9:30 AM departure. We will take the Chief Joseph Highway to Cooke City, have lunch, and return home over the Beartooth Highway.
Also, please don’t forget our 10th Annual All Euro Car Show on August 26th. I would love to see lots of our members attend this year. I have been working really hard trying to get the word out. I have our posters and the tickets, so if you want to help pass them around just let me know and I will be happy to get some to you. We need all the help we can get from our members.
I would like to thank Ernie Bunn, Nicholas Hessy, Stephanie Krueger and David Sage for renewing their membership. We appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing you in the near future.
I hope to see you soon.
