Now that the WCR is over, it time for you to plan your 914 birthday weekend. You can head southeast for Okteenerfest or northwest for the Teener Turnout.

Here's what you can expect in the PNW.

Our Saturday schedule starts with a tech session at the Porsche Dealership in Fife where we'll take a close look at the 914 and the 718. We'll use the shop
space with lifts and examine the cars from top to bottom.

Then we'll take a drive around the south sound and I've been getting lots a help from the local PCA tour crew so we will be traveling fun roads.

The tour ends at a park in Kent where you can join in and celebrate Oktoberfest. We'll be parking the 914s on the paved pathway right in front of the event
so they can be viewed and envied by all the other P car owners. You don't need to
drink beer to have fun at this party although plenty of people will be doing that. Your $25 ticket gets you one beer and
brat. I guarantee you'll be smiling and laughing when Manuela Horn and her band start their show.

Sunday we'll meet up at a local restaurant in Kent for a parking lot car show. I have someone who has promised to create a video of the cars
and their owners. The restaurant offers a great brunch, but if you're not a big eater (or just cheep) you can just order something off the menu too. Lastly,
we'll have a presentation by Mark Greene of Car Yeah This is the guy who designed the Griot's headquarters and he's a Porsche nut to boot. We should be done by 1:30.

If you'd like to get a t-shirt with the logo or a hat, I can help you with
that or I can send you the art. The PCA club will have someone at the Saturday tech session who will make up t-shirts on the spot, if that suits you.

I have set up an account at Motorsportsreg.com where people can register for any or all the session. We use this site to manage events in our region
and it works great. If your thinking of attending, I urge you to sign up using that site, but if you're in fear of "the Web", you can just PM me and I'll put you on the list.
The only cost for any of the activities is for the Oktoberfest and the profits from it go to the Rotary club that sponsors it. I can arrange for you to buy tickets
without using the website, if you'd like.

Here's the site where you sign up.

I'm starting to plan out the Saturday morning Tech Session and need someone to volunteer their car. We'll be looking at how the 914 and the 718 are alike and different. I'm looking for a stock car that is as close to original as possible. We'll be putting it up on the lift too, so the cleaner the better. Of course, you'll need to be able to get it down to the dealer in Fife early in the morning too.

Any one willing to step up?

I spent two hours with one of the guys who plans tours for our local PCA club studying Google maps and laying out a route for the Saturday drive. So much work. Next he said we need to make the drive about 5 times and tweet it.

Lots of fun roads. At least they look fun from the satellite photos.

Here’s our speaker for the brunch on Sunday morning. His name is Mark Greene and he’s very entertaining. A Porsche guy for
his whole life. You can hear him on his daily podcast Cars Yeah.

What is general area for the drive? N/S/E/W?

I can volunteer my '74 CanAm LE for the tech session as it should be out of restoration by then. Totally stock other than 911 starter, Pertronix ignition, and SS heat exchangers. Or use another. No worries.

Thanks, but I have someone who already signed up to bring their car. I could use a backup. I know PCA is hoping for several LEs at the Carillon Point show the weekend before. Are you a PCA member?

Yes, PCA and PNWR member, and I also participate in OPR events. I hadn't heard anything about them wanting LEs...oh well, lots of politics in PNWR also. I've done Carillon the last three years.

Looks great Billy! I'll plan to be there with my wife. Make for a nice weekend out

@sirAndy

Can I get a colored box around the thread please?

Also I have the event registered on Motorsportsreg.com now. If you haven’t used the site, you might like to check it out. It’s an easy way to get people signed up for your car related activity. They also promote for you by sending emails out to people who want to receive notices. Our PCA club uses it. For those of you who avoid signing up for yet another “service”, you may simply let me know what parts of the weekend you’d like to attend.

I’ll work on a hotel with motor home parking. So far I have a tech session planed for Saturday morning at the Porsche dealership in Fife. Followed by a tour that ends at the Octoberfest party. Sunday is a car show and breakfast with Mark Greene.
rhodyguy
Tony, the hotel in Kent is 35 miles or so from Tacoma. Don't take a boat. Drive over the Narrows. If you decide to stay in Tacoma the 'La Quinta Inn' is pretty nice. Left on Portland AVE off of I-5. Close to the Porsche dealership in a round about way. The 'sweet spot' timewise is being thru Tacoma before 3. Traffic congestion goes south rapidly. If you're trailering the 914 the boat will be really expensive and you might need a reservation to get on the one you want. Both ways. Hassle.

Last weekend I spent most of the day driving the roads we planned out on google earth for the tour. It was a lot more work than I thought. Some of the roads were just too bland and others went thru neighborhoods with too many stop signs. In all we drove 4 hours and 70 miles and now we have to figure out a new plan. The fellow who is helping me has planed many tours and he says it takes about 5 seasons to come up with a plan
scallyk9
Hey Billy. I had done this for rally/tours for the MG Car Club-Northwest Centre back in the eighties. It's not easy. Your diligence and work on this is greatly appreciated.

Why is it that sometimes my pdf appears as a download rather than the actual document?

Figured it out. Still need to fix a few issues with the registration program, but almost ready for people to sign up
