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?
