Up Island Year End Social
Up Island First Ever Year End Social, Sat. Nov. 14, 2015 @ 12 noon
We marshalled at our usual Cars & Coffee location, Crown Isle Plaza, in the parking lot across from Starbucks, on a beautiful sunny day. We welcomed 20 members and guests, plus Eddie, a handsome and very well behaved Golden Doodle, who is the co-pilot to Harvey in his 2016 GT Silver Boxster Spyder. In addition to the usual shiny collection of 911’s, Boxsters, 968’s, we were also joined by Hubert in his Silver 2015 911 GT3 which he picked up directly from Stuttgart, April 2015. Members from Campbell River, Comox Valley, Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo, were represented. including Dave Wright in his, new to him, 2011 Auburne Cayenne.
Henning & Tanya, new to the Comox Valley, Canada West members, soon to be VIR members, took the lead on our short drive through nearby country roads, including a few 90% corners to keep the drivers happy, on our way to lunch at the White Whale Restaurant, located on the Courtenay River, where we were joined by some more members.
John Clark, a past member, long time Porsche enthusiast, currently a Cayman owner, made an excellent picture presentation, including Jerry Seinfeld, of a visit he and his wife made with three other VIR couples to the Rennsport Reunion, Sept. 2015. John was given a scale model of a Cayman S, as our thank you.
After lunch, we enjoyed Black Forest cake decorated with “PCA 60th Anniversary”, and a group picture was taken with the 60th Anniversary banner, won by Hubert Brauckmann, at the Year End Buffet, Nov. 6 at the Cowichan Golf & Country Club.
Thank you to all who attended.
