In the Zone – January 2015



We have a winner!! The new Zone 6 Logo.  Hope you like it.  Thank you to all that entered.

 Happy New Year to all of Zone 6. The New Year brings lots of great Porsche friends, fun and adventure our way.  Make sure you stay involved and are not missing out.  The best way to stay involved is to be involved with you club: volunteer.  “Adventure” you ask, have you looked at the Zone 6 Grand Tour?  Starts in Tacoma, WA, July 25 and ends in Portland, OR, Aug 8, two weeks later after a clockwise route that drives in all 16 regions!

 To our outgoing Board members throughout the Zone, Thank you! Your hard work and commitment to your club is very much appreciated and helps make PCA the great club it is.  New Board members, you have some big shoes to fill! I look forward to meeting you during the upcoming year.  Don’t forget to say “Thank you” to your Board members, it is a volunteer job that they do for you!

 Do you ever wonder how many primary members we have in Zone 6? I’ve attached part of a spreadsheet that shows some Zone 6 stats and the bottom line is all PCA. Our Zone 6 is the 6th largest region out of 13 total regions.

  Total Members # RegionsGaining Members # Gained # RegionsLosing Members #Lost Net Net % Change
Zone 6 4,977 11 163 5 16 147 3%
Total 67,442 101 2,075 40 336 1,739 3%

 For those Regions that have “driving seasons”, hold on, winter will pass.  I keep reminding myself of this as I stand in the garage and dream of roads not yet traveled.

 Don’t forget: it really is about the people.
