Just a reminder we'll gather in the parking lot near Captree Cove Restaurant and concession at Captree State Park from 8-11AM. The concession looks to be open at 6AM (lots of people fishing).

Please let me know if you are coming to the BBQ afterwards when you are there.

The admission cost is $8/car.

See everyone in the morning!

My cell phone number is 516-330-7987.

Michael

That's a pretty good turnout for the first one!

The key is consistency and persistence.

Pick a day each month or whatever interval you guys choose and do it at that time and place regardless of circumstance.

Keep doing it so persistently, so that everybody knows on this date and at this time, the 928 GTG is going to be at this place.

Later you can move places if need be as you get a better network of local people talking amongst themselves and the word will get out.

Where are your pictures?

...it didn't happen! LOL!

Yea, that is a good first showing. Look for the next one to be worse and then they will start to build up I suspect...at least that is the way it has gone in my experience with these types of things. Sometimes the first 2 are good and the 3rd is a little off and then it will build back up for the next few tries and then settle in.

Keep them routine and you will see some real 928OC growth in your area!

Thanks so much for being a good Regional Rep leader for your area! Having and active Regional Rep makes a HUGE difference to the club at large!

Also, thanks to Big John for announcing and organizing the D/FW events! Those guys (and maybe it was even you John) encouraged me to start doing them down here in Austin and it has worked for us as well!

We have discovered that only black and red 928s exist on Long Island...

Actually El Greco (my friend, fellow 928 owner and mechanic) has a black 86.5.

I'll get him to join up soon.

One sad story, one member called me to let me know he lost his car a month ago (age 25-bough a super low miles car from a family friend); was just in the process of switching from Geico to Hagerty when he lost traction in the slick going from the West Side Highway to the FDR Drive (tunnel) in Manhattan. Totalled it against the wall and got about 1/3 of the real value. 1987 S4.

He thought he wouldn't be able to come without a 928...I told him 1) Anyone is welcome 2) He said the right thing "It was my first Porsche..." to which I replied-"Then it won't be your last and most important, you're fine, it's just a car..."

We had 8 owners with 6 cars. I expect it will drop off next time as y'all have said. Then pick up.
