President's Message 

Mike Hinton President
by Mike Hinton, Redwood Region President

  Summer is here, as I'm sure you have noticed, and the Redwood Region's events are in full swing.  Our three club-sponsored events in July included an autocross, a winery tour and drive, and a public display in Sonoma.  I'm happy to report that we had a great turnout for each event, with many new faces in attendance.  Big thanks go out to our intrepid autocross crew, including our peerless gatekeeper Kurt, and expert registrars Anita and Laverne, to Vern Rogers for coordinating and leading the drive to Field Stone Winery, and to Kurt for keeping the Sonoma gathering on track.  Lastly, many thanks to Deven Wailes for sponsoring the Sonoma event, and for hosting the fantastic after-party at his house.

 

  Now that August has arrived, the Club has another interesting slate of events, with a couple of non-Club sponsored events for your consideration.  The monthly Marin Cars and Coffee gathering was held on August 2, with an estimated 250 cars in attendance.  It's a great, low-key event with plenty of unusual cars and very nice people.  Contact Kurt Fischer for more information.  August 8 is the latest edition of our autocross series.  I'll be conducting a large experiment (for me) as I swap Barney (my 1972 911T) for our 2014 991 Carrera.  I suspect that a steep learning curve is in my near future!  The following week features the near-overload of "Monterey Car Week."  It's a great opportunity to see hundreds of interesting cars, and my two favorite events, the Concours on the Avenue, and the Tour d'Elegance, are both free to the public.  Of course, the Werks Reunion sponsored by Porsche is on Friday of Car Week, and that event is free also.  After Car Week, we have another winery tour scheduled at Pech Merle Winery in Geyserville.  Jamie and I will be cooking the chicken, so come on down!

 

  I hope to see you at one of the upcoming August events.  I will be down in Monterey as well, and hope to see some of you either in Carmel, or at Werks Reunion!

 

Mike


From the Editor

by Jamie DeRuiter, der Riesenbaum Editor

  Our group enjoyed many great events this past month most of which are written up in this issue of der Riesenbaum.  I personally got to autocross again and attended the Porsches on the Plaza event.  I can't say enough about how fun it is to be a part of this group of great people.  I had as much fun racing with them as I did hanging out in the Plaza sipping some fine wine.  

  This month includes another winery tour at Pech Merle.  Myself and Mike Hinton will be the BBQ masters for the event.  Come on out and enjoy a great meal with some fabulously crafted wine.  I know Mike already gave us a plug above on this event but I want to emphasize just how fun it is going to be.  

  On a personal note, I've had a great summer so far hanging out with my oldest son and his best friend in the mountains before they head off to college.  Our dog is very confused by his noticeable absence in our valley home.  Our dog, Suki, keeps checking in his room to see if he's there.  I'm afraid that's how I'm going to feel when he's off at college after having him always around these past eighteen years.  He's heading off to Cogswell Polytechnical College in Santa Clara.  He has no idea how much fun he's going to have off on his own.  

  This morning I found myself adjusting my front sway bar in anticipation of this weekend's autocross event.  I always try to find something to do in hopes of going faster.  It seems that suspension tweaks are something one can do and never quite be happy with.  I'm searching for that point at which I finally say, "that's it!"  In reality, I don't think this may ever happen but I hope to come close to that feeling soon.

  Come on out and enjoy one of our autocross events, winery tours or what have you.  This group is very welcoming and down to earth.  We love our new members and have a great time meeting them and getting to know them better.  If you make it out to one of our up coming events you'll be glad you did.

Shift Toward Adventure,

Jamie  

 

Field Stone Winery Tour
vern rogers headshot 2011
by Vern Rogers, Past President Redwood Region
 

  Over 30 cars and 56 people gathered on a beautiful Saturday morning a few weeks back for an hour and a half of Sonoma County backroad bliss.  The tour about to begin would take us from Kaffe Mocha in Windsor to the Southern-most beginnings of West Side Rd.  West Side has always been one of my favorite roads even in past years when the pavement surface was awful.  Lucky for our Porsche pilots this day, it had very recently been repaved.  Nothing combines so well as new asphalt, great vineyard views, incredible vehicles, and intrepid drivers.

The Driver's Meeting
 

 

 

 

 

  We followed West Side all the way until it turned toward Eastward towards Healdsburg, catching West Dry Creek Rd in the middle of that turn.  Amazingly enough West Dry Creek also had new pavement... let the bliss continue.  Unfortunately, we did have to contend with other, slower, and perhaps less predictable occupants of the road.  Even though we had moved our event away from the July 18th Vineman Triathalon, we still ended up with a Century Ride on our Saturday.  Luckily, the Century riders were going in the opposite direction from the Porsches, and for the most part were in single file.  Those of you that attended this year's Point Reyes Station run remember that this is not always the case.

 

 

 

  We stayed on West Dry Creek to very near the far North end of the valley crossing it only to reach Dutcher Creek road and make our way across 101, down to Geyserville and onto 128 South into Alexander Valley landing ultimately on a right turn onto the driveway to Field Stone.

 

  This was our third annual trek to this beautiful setting.  Once again, we were greeted by the always friendly staff and winery volunteers.  After car parking, and getting wristbands for wine tasting and lunch, most folks were led on a tour of the grounds.  A few stayed behind at the picnic tables to begin the first round of tasting.  Once the tour participants arrived back, several wines were poured for tasting, ending with the absolutely fabulous Petite Sirah.  A lunch of grilled sausages, tri-tip, potato and green salads, as well as corn bread and a chocolate cake dessert followed the tasting and was heartily enjoyed by all.  Our few vegetarians were treated to some excellent and very freshly prepared cheese ravioli in pesto sauce.

 

porsches in the vineyard
Lunch time

 

  All participants received two tickets for a glass of wine, as well as a raffle ticket.  No one went hungry or thirsty.  Raffle prizes of baseball caps and vintage wall thermometers were won by a lucky few, and friendly

camaraderie abounded.

  

  Year after year this winery has provided our club with a really fantastic event, as well as an opportunity to purchase their wines at a discount and join their wine club.  As I have said, this is the only club I still belong to and have been a member since the early 80's.  If you had a great time at this event, please show your appreciation by writing a great review on Yelp, by becoming a member of their wine club, or simply by purchasing their wines in your local store or restaurant.

 

  We look forward to the summer of 2016 for our next run to Field Stone.  Big thanks to Katherine, Greg, Jason and the fabulous winery volunteers!

Porsches on the Plaza - July 25th, 2015

 

 by Simone Kopitzki, Sponsorship Director Redwood Region

 

  On a nice sunny morning about 50 Porsches showed up for our very popular Porsches on the Plaza event in Sonoma. Once the members had parked their cars in the horseshoe in front of the City Hall and registered it was then time to enjoy a beautiful day in the Park. The park surrounding the horseshoe is perfect for sitting in the shade, enjoying a picnic, wine and good conversations. This event is more about the social part of the club. Meeting old and new friends in the club. Very causal but a lot of fun.

 

    

  

 Susan Stuart and I assisted with people that were interested in joining the club and with the collection of the People's choice tickets. Some were interested in the activities of the club.  Others wanted to receive the newsletter.  Many people told us their story of their Porsche experience and some just stopped by to look at the brochure "Porsche for sale" presented by Greg Maissen, the sales representative for HiTec Automotive and we hope that they will eventually be buying and joining the club later.

 

 

 

 Speaking of HiTec Automotive, a special shout out to HiTec Automotive and Deven Wailes, its owner. He sponsored the event once again. Thank you Deven for your continuing support to the club.

 

    

 

 The 'People's Choice' first place winner was Thomas Renshaw and his wife Cindy.  They actually just bought their 1964 356C Cabriolet from HiTec Automotive and re-joined the club after 30+ years of being absent. Second place was Mike Burns with his 911/930 Turbo. Third place was shared by Vern Rogers (Cayman), Thorsten Kopitzki (991) and Jim Hybiske (911 RS Replica).

 

  

 

   In addition, Porsche Merchandise items such as a poster, calendars and books were donated by Vern Rogers.  Three bottles of wine from Adobe Road were donated by the Redwood Region and a bottle of champagne was donated by BusiBee Bookkeeping.  All these wonderful prizes were raffled off to those owners in the preferred parking area on the square.

 

 

  

 Our region's charity,CASA, was also there to represent themselves. All collections from this event are going to support CASA (Court Appointed Children Advocates). With over 50 cars we are able to give a good amount of support. 

 

  The event dissolved around 3:30. As in past years, Deven Wailes, owner of HiTec Automotive, hosted an after show party at his home for members of the club.  Everybody brought some food or drinks and in the beautiful setting of his garden we socialized until about 9 pm. I am already looking forward to this great event next year.

Member Profile - Autocross Experience, AX#6

  Autocrossing with Andy Smith

                                    by Chip Witt, Redwood Region Secretary

 

 

  I had the pleasure of running into one of Redwood Region's newest members, Andy Smith, at the Marin Cars and Coffee in Novato on July 5th. Through the course of our conversation, I learned that Andy had not only heard about our region's great autocross events, but had already been invited out by several of his friends that regularly autocross with the club. Despite multiple invitations and lots of encouragement, it seemed like Andy might have still been on the fence about coming out to AX #6 on July 11th when we parted ways, but I remained hopeful.

 

 

 

  Well, I'm happy to report that Andy did make it out and, by all accounts, had an amazing time. He graciously gave us a few minutes for an email interview about his experience.

 

dR:  How long have you been a PCA member? How long with the Redwood Region?

 

Andy:  I have been a member for only about six months, Redwood and PCA.

 

dR:  What Porsche(s) do you (or have previously) owned? How long have (did) you had it (have them)?

 

Andy:  I started slowly! I currently have the 1989 Targa (Baltic Blue) which I have owned for about a year and previously had a 1999 all-black 911 (996) which I had for a little more than a year before that.  I have been previously (and continue to be) an Alfa Romeo fan as well, although I am just down to the one 1988 Spider Veloce at this stage...as I need to make garage space for the Porsches!

 

dR:  What originally led you to join the PCA?

 

Andy:  I have three or four friends who are longtime members, and super-knowledgeable about the club and the brand. They invited me to a tech event at Hi Tec, and I enjoyed the group so much I joined right thereafter.

 

dR: Have you attended other club events, and if so, which ones? Did you bring a guest (your wife/significant other) with you for any of them? Did you have fun?

 

Andy:  So far, I have been to two tech events, one tour (Oktoberfest), several Cars and Coffee Sundays in Novato, and a few non-official events like Dick Gale's "One Lap of Marin".  Of course, I had fun!  Any time I'm learning more about the marque, about sports cars in general, or about how to become a better owner/driver, I am living the dream! So far, just me for those events but working on other family members!

 

dR:  How did you first hear about autocrossing with the club?

 

Andy:  Somebody made an announcement at the Tech Event which piqued my interest. Then my Porsche Club buddies had told me about how great it is for learning about your car and learning about performance driving.  The low cost and the frequency of offerings made it very easy for me to decide to "take the plunge"!

 

dR:  When you first heard about autocrossing, what were your thoughts? Were you immediately interested? Did you have any concerns that gave you cause for hesitation?

 

Andy:  Well, I think that I am like a lot of people; I don't want to embarrass myself too badly. I figured that there would be people there with a LOT more experience and with a lot more specialized cars.  I guessed that there was the potential for me to look very bad!

 

dR: Did you have any preconceived notions of what autocrossing was or the types of Porsche owners it catered to?

 

Andy: The above types. Not necessarily bad, but potentially intimidating for the newbie!

 

dR:  What did you get out of the day? Learn anything specific? Did anything about the day surprise you?

 

Andy:  First of all, I found everyone to be extremely helpful and supportive. I had to "learn the ropes" (e.g. everything) when our group was assigned the track/marshall duty, and Joe Lee was very helpful in explaining everything.  Then Bob Schoenherr acted as my instructor when it was my turn to drive, and because his style is very Cool, Calm and Collected, I began to improve almost right from the start.  I learned the limits of my car (yes, one spin!) and I learned some good techniques.  Both helped me shave seven seconds off my time by the end of the day. Fun!

 

dR:  Did you have fun? Will you come out again? Would you recommend autocrossing to your friends and family? Why?

 

Andy:  Yes and yes! I will definitely be back. I also have some friends who are very curious about the process but a bit afraid to take the plunge. I can happily tell them that there is nothing to worry about and everything to gain!

 

dR:  Sounds like you had a great time! We're glad to hear you plan on coming out again. Now that you've had your initial experience, what would your "elevator pitch" be to friends that you think might benefit from coming out to an autocross event with you?

 

Andy: I would tell them that there is no better or more cost-effective way to learn both about yourself and your car in a very short time frame. All is very organized and safe, yet as much fun as I have ever had driving a car!

 

  We asked Andy to provide the picture you see of him with his car. With it he provided a little editorial commentary: "It's kind of an idiotic picture, but Essy Fariab took this and I get a laugh out of it!"

 

  Andy, thank you for answering our questions, providing the picture and for your participation in our events. You seem to fit right in, and we're happy to have you. Welcome to the Redwood Region of the Porsche Club of America!

Update: Event Registration on MSR

 

Three years ago Redwood Region started using MotorsportReg.com for event sign ups and collecting associated payments.  We have found it a very convenient and effective platform for planning purposes as well as greatly simplifying payment collections. Our use of the application has continued to grow, as has our practice of using it. The Region is now requiring online payment when registering for almost all events; the only exceptions are the Redwood Autocrosses. MotorsportReg.com (MSR) has also made some changes. The most noticeable to our membership is that they are no longer accepting electronic checks (e-checks) and payment options are limited to Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards. For those of you who prefer not to pay online, you may mail a check to the Region Treasurer such that it arrives before the registration closing date.

Thanks,

 

Jerry Gladstone

Election Announcement

  Well, it's that time of year again when a young man's (or woman's) fancy runs toward thoughts of being elected to the Redwood Region Board of Directors.  What?...  you're laughing?

 

  But seriously, it is the duty of the most Recent Past President of the Region (me) to begin shaking the bushes looking for those members who not only understand that PCA runs on volunteers, but also want to contribute to a club that brings them so much fun and enjoyment throughout the year.

 

  President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer are all board positions that require election each year.  Any and/or all of these provide an excellent opportunity to give back to your club.  Please contact me, Vern Rogers, at either rogersvern@gmail.com, or 415-420-9567 if you have an interest in running for one of these positions.

 

  These are just the elected members of the board.  If you are interested in serving in one of the appointed positions instead, that opportunity can also be available.  Appointed positions include: Safety Director, Goodie Store Director, Event Director, Sponsorship Director, Autocross Director, Membership Director, Social Media Director, Concours Director, Newsletter Editor.  Again, contact me if interested.

 

  Lastly, as I stated many times when I was President, we always welcome member input and suggestions for events.  You may contact me or any other Board member with these.

 

That's all for now... down the road.

 

Vern Rogers
