Jack’s President’s Message – May/June 2024

April has really started out with a lot of driving. Patty and I missed all our club’s drives this month. Instead, I had the adventure of driving from Molt, MT to Bedford NH. The trip was for us to see our family. There is a long and convoluted story about why I drove to New Hampshire. I can fill anybody who is interested in that story at our breakfast Porsches & Pancakes on Saturday, May 11th. BTW, Patty chose to fly back and forth.

Just a little trivia on my 2400-mile trip to New Hampshire, I saw three Porsches; two Macans and one Cayenne.

It sounds like I missed a great time at the Porsche & Pancake breakfast and then on the drive after breakfast, April 13th. From the pictures, it looks like 11 cars and about 16 members participated in the drive to Roundup. I hear the visit to the studios was great. I want to thank Fred Magers for planning that drive.

It also looks like everyone had a great time driving to Chico Hot Springs on April 20th. From the pictures it looks like we had ten cars and 14 members on that drive.

May 11th is Porsches & Pancakes at the Laurel Golf Course at 9:00 AM.

The after-breakfast drive will be a drive to Joliet and then crossover to Columbus. From Columbus we would avoid the highway. We would drive the back roads (Frontage Road) back to the Laurel Golf Course.

Saturday, May 18th our plan is to drive from Greybull, WY to Burgess Junction. The drive will start at 9:00 AM at 360 Office Solutions, 3676 Pierce Parkway, near Costco and Zoo Drive. More information to come on this trip.

The highlight of May is the opening of the Beartooth Highway. The drive will be on Memorial Day May 27th. More information will come and hopefully it won’t snow that day.

In June, we have a couple of ideas for drives. One idea is to drive to Martinsdale, MT to go to the Charles Bair Museum and have a picnic lunch nearby. This would be a two-hour drive about 120 miles one way. Another suggested drive would be to Cody, WY and visit the Buffalo Bill Center in Cody.

I’ll survey the group at the May breakfast and see what folks want to do. June is also High-Performance Drivers Education (HPDE) in Lewistown, MT. The HPDE is on June 29th and 30th. Registration is online starting May 1st.

I hope to see everyone for breakfast on May 11th.
