Porsche at the Pony – The Second Coming – 2015
On Sunday, August 30, we held the second evening of the year where the Porsche Club of America was the feature car club at the Pony Corral on Grant – and the weather cooperated with a hot and sunny day.
By 5:00 o’clock there wasn’t space for one more car in the display area in front of the restaurant and the count had reached 36 vehicles with a good mix of Carreras, Boxsters, Cayennes, a Macan, Caymans, Turbos, 944s, 928’s, and even a 914 and a 356 for good measure. By 7:30, more had arrived but were forced to park singly in the general display area. By now, the estimated count was 40 Porsche. It is now evident that our members enjoy discussing their cars with each other, as well as the interested car guys and gals strolling by.
My thanks go out to all our members who supported the display, as well as Porsche Centre, Winnipeg, and Nott Auto Corp who also provided cars. And a special thank you to Peter Ginakes who provided food for all the drivers.
With the help of a few of our dedicated members, I recruited two new members and restored membership to a former member, temporally bringing our total primary membership count to 202!
In short, a very successful event! We shall do it again next year – twice!
