October 7th, 2017 – Arthur Berry Garagemahaul Tour – Oh yeah, this is it! – For those of you who don’t know Mr. Berry, let me introduce you to a very unique and interesting individual – best word to use is diversified. Mr. Berry is the current co-owner of Camelback Resort (how cool is THAT!) and has long been an avid automotive enthusiast who is not afraid to go after and acquire unique vehicles for his collection. For us to be able to experience his pallet of cars is a great treat and a very rare opportunity!

Mr. Berry has confirmed that he has NO parking restrictions, so we can accept more than our usual 10 car maximum – thank you Art!

2018 Officers and Chairs

President

I am an avid drummer (self taught) and have been playing since I was 4 (not always very well mind you!) but have had the good fortune to have played with some very talented musicians who have helped me to improve my own playing along the way. I’ve been car crazy since building my first model at the age of 5, I am also very passionate about driving, both on the open road and on the track. To this end, I have been fortunate to acquire a personal collection of vehicles that touch on my personality. I feel blessed to have had the opportunities in my life that have challenged me to be the best that I can be and I look forward to each day as such.

Vice President & Driving Tour Chair

Mark Frumkin is a life-long resident of the Hazleton area.

Secretary

Eddie and Trish became friends with Mark and Lynn Frumkin when they moved to Beech Mountain Lakes. Mark and Lynn talked about how great the Christmas party and the club was, so there was only one thing to do, buy a Porsche so we could join the club and attend the party.  Trish has no experience with cars, but enjoys the events, activities and especially the members. As  Safety Chair, she learned a lot regarding how the club operates and will continue to learn as Secretary.

Treasurer

From Ken – Treasurer Emeritus and Continuous, a gearhead who prefers working on his car rather than pay a professional to do the work. That’s why his car hasn’t run in a year and a half.

But all of the savings from not going to the track have been very beneficial to paying for my daughter’s wedding.

2016 October Drive & Dine Gallery

Our Annual October Drive and Dine today saw 42 for breakfast and 18 cars spend an afternoon traversing some fabulous Pennsylvania country side. And a hay ride and a catered dinner at Hillside Farms. Thanks to Chuck and other officers and members of Pocono who made this a complete success. Best ride ever! Thanks to Cheryl Taylor, our Zone 2 Rep, for joining us. This was as good as it gets!

A big ‘Thank You!’ for the header pic!

There were a bunch of P-Cars parked at Grotto Pizza for last night’s Member Meeting, and since it was a Tuesday night in September and the summer crowd isn’t on the lake, more than half the cars in the lot were Porsches. The crew from Grotto was taking the opportunity to admire the cars and, while I was taking some pictures for a Facebook post, one of them approached me and offered a panorama he’d taken with this phone.

Needless to say, I asked him to send it to me and our site boasts a new header pic.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get his name, but if he sees this: Thanks for the awesome shot!

Maybe John needs an apprentice?
