We’d love to hear from you.

We’re the Pocono Region of the Porsche Club of America, and we’re car people. We’re not Porsche owners because they’re expensive. We’re Porsche owners because they’re fun! We get together because we like each other, and we think you’ll like us too! Drop us a line, try out a meeting, ask a question; we’ll be happy to help in any way we can with your Porsche experience.

Use this form to contact our Board of Directors with any questions or comments.

July Pocono Region Monthly Membership Meeting, 7/21/2020

July Member’s Meeting at Eurana Park in Weatherly, PA. It has been very difficult for your BOD to find outdoor venues to meet because of the current situation with COVID-19. Eurana Park is a tranquil spot in Weatherly with a playground, basketball court, volleyball court, and even disc golf course. There is a lake for swimming (closed), indoor pavilion, band shell, and 2 huge open-air covered pavilions that have 18 large picnic tables each, which is perfect for social distancing rain or shine at our meeting. There is also a snack bar which serves food, and ICE CREAM for dessert..

There is a paved parking lot for parking with a short walk to the covered pavilion where we will conduct our meeting. Rest rooms are available.

And a word of caution, as a former Safety Chair I’ll suggest observing speed limits, especially since I have been told that there are a few speed traps in and around Weatherly.

Please remember to fill out and bring your Communicable Disease Waiver form . We will need to wear masks and social distance during the event, except when eating. We must comply with the PA and PCA guidance. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

If you have suggestions for future outdoor meeting locations please send then to John Emmett (Fam4Emmett@Aol.com) or Margie Becker at (jimmar@ptd.net). Please help us keep events going.

Time: Tuesday July 21st from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Place: Eurana Park
560 Third Street
Weatherly, PA 18255

Pavilion #1 which is to the right of the band shell in the park.

Food: Pizza will be delivered 6:30ish compliments of your Region treasury.

Drink: Bring your own beverage, or purchase one at the snack bar (alcohol not permitted in the park) (pets not permitted in the park).

Note: The snack bar only accepts cash
Suggestion: Bring a beach towel to mark your seat at the picnic table. Let’s see who brings the most interesting beach towel……

Please RSVP so we can have an appropriate amount of pizza. Responding is strongly recommended. RSVP to: Margie Becker – her email is jimmar atsign ptd.net

Thanks for your patience and understanding with our struggles during this strange time in our history. John Emmett
