On Sunday, September 13th the Red River Region PCA held its second Concours at the St. Charles Country Club. The event kicked off at 3:00 p.m. with judging of the 29 Porsches from 3:30 to 5:00.
We could not have asked for a more perfect day; a clear blue sky with a near record temperature of 30 degrees! 56 members attended the dinner, joined by PCA‘s Zone 10 representative Kim Fritze and two representatives from Porsche Centre Winnipeg.
Initial participant feedback indicated members thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The country club’s ambiance, the quality of the meal along with excellent serving staff, went a long way to making this evening extraordinary. A special thanks goes to the members of the planning committee for all their hard work in making this event a success [Dennis Duncan and Yvonne Friesen]. Also a thanks to Bruce Tait and Keith Gordon for coordinating the judging activities.
A special acknowledgement goes out to the judges, Ryan St. Hilaire and Bruce Broughton from Porsche Centre Winnipeg. The judges felt they had a challenging task, as all of the vehicles were in pristine condition. They did an admirable job and it was obvious to participants the judges took the event seriously, as they spent a great deal of time carefully examining each Porsche.
A special thanks to the management of Porsche Centre Winnipeg for their generous donation of prizes for the winners in each category. The People’s Choice award was a Porsche watch, which will be cherished by this year’s winner, Rick Dobel.
