There are many definitions for cruising. One source defined it as: a social activity that primarily consists of driving a car; it can be an expression of the freedom of possessing a driver’s license. Another definition states: cruising is just driving around with no clear destination, ‘at low speed’. Mostly, you cruise with your friends and just chill. Neither of these definitions appear to adequately portray what happens at a Porsche cruising event, as we had a clear destination in mind and ‘spirited driving’ more appropriately depicts the driving experience! The one thing that stood out in the definitions is it involves friends and ‘chill’n’; now this clearly happened once we arrived at the golf club.
The fall event attracted 14 cars and 27 registered participants. We could not have asked for better driving conditions. The beginning of the cruise happened under clear sunny skies and the temperature was in the mid-teens; conditions just ripe for fall driving. Some brave souls made the trip with their convertible top down. David Breed chose the route to the restaurant and we were treated to absolutely perfect provincial roads and fabulous fall colours.
The restaurant was on a picturesque golf course, which provides the ambience for an evening of sharing great food and lively conversation. As many individuals were still chatting with new and old friends at the conclusion of the meal, we decided not to leave as a group. The drive back was quiet and serene under the stars on a Manitoba autumn night.
Overall, participants indicated they had a good evening. Thanks to all who came out and made this an enjoyable evening.
Many thanks to the new members who attended and we are looking forward to seeing you at other events, especially our annual Christmas party at the end of November. Stay tuned to your email and our website for more information, as the planning for this event is well underway and it promises to be a memorable experience.
