Stephanie’s President’s Message – #9

This letter is going to be a long one because we have a lot of things to cover.

First off, congratulations to Jo Pintz-Cole for winning First Place for Newsletter Editor for Small Regions at the 60th Porsche Parade, you finally beat out Yellowstone Region. I knew you could do it. We have an awesome newsletter.

June was a busy month for us as we had two big events this month. We held the postponed Gimmick Rally on June 13th with the Yellowstone Valley Mustang Club. We had a great turnout and a lot of fun. The Mustang club appreciated us inviting them. Thanks Dan for a great trip. They held their 2nd Annual All Car Car show at the Shrine the following Saturday. It is their fundraiser for the Shrine Children’s Hospital. Jim Hasbrouck was there with his beautiful 356 and I attended.

On June 27th and 28th we had our overnight trip to Thermopolis Hot Springs, Wy. Ernie Bunn was our tour guide and did an excellent job. He is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge on the area’s history. Everyone had a great time, even in the heat.
Registration will begin mid July for Escape to the Black Hills. Watch your emails from PCA. We would love to have a group of us go from here as it is so close this year. It runs from September 30th to October 4th. This is a National event close to home.

The Zone 6 Grand Tour is really coming together. To date 17 cars have registered for the Saskatoon, SK to Billings leg and 21 cars from Billings to Cody. We hope to have several of our members join the drive to Cody. If you are planning on attending please register, free of charge, at MOTORSPORTS.REG by July 18th. I have attached the information.

Would anyone be interested in going to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman on July 18th? If you have never seen the Museum or Planetarium they are really something to see. Please let me know and I will make the arrangements. We would leave from the Holiday on Gable Rd at 8:30 am.

If you haven’t joined us on Facebook yet, it’s a good way to stay up to date of our events and pictures of afterwards.

We have can cozies with the Absaroka logo for sale for $2.00 each. Everyone needs one of these.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July and see you at breakfast on the 11th.
