Subject: Pocono New Member Breakfast and Poker Run
Pocono Region held its new member breakfast and first ever poker run on Saturday the 19th of May. The new member breakfast was well attended at Perkins in Wilkes-Barre Pa with 20-plus members and new members in attendance.
The poker run following the breakfast was well attended as well with 10 cars following a scenic and curvy “Pocono” route which climbed up the Giants Despair Hill Climb Route, traversed Francis Walter Dam (stopping for a card) and on to Lackawanna Welcome center at Montage for another card. From there around some of the areas best switch back roads along the Upper Susquehanna River, and finally to the Tipsy Turtle restaurant at Avoca Airport for the last of the five cards at 1:15.
Dinner certificates to the top three and Porsche related gifts to all the drivers in attendance.
The weather held (mostly) for us and a great time was had by all.
