Family Picnic, Car Show, Open Board Meeting, and New Members' Social on Sunday, October 16, 2022. Circle D Farm is located in the rolling hills of Howard County, MD. We will have access to mini-golf, tennis courts, volleyball, basketball, softball, horseshoes, a ball pit, and a full tented picnic area with indoor restrooms. All balls and equipment will be on-site, just bring yourselves!
Price includes a full picnic luncheon including grilled chicken, hamburgers, beef hot dogs, veggie burgers, veggie beans, coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, non-alcoholic drinks, beer and wine (no glass allowed!), and all the fixings! Information about the farm and activities may be found at: http://www.CircleDFarm.com.
The picnic will feature an entertaining Car Show! Unlike most Concours, you do NOT need to spend hours detailing your car. Attendees will vote on a variety of categories, such as the PCA Family award, the “No Brainer” award (best daily driver), Kid’s Choice award (selected by voters under 17 years of age), People’s Choice award (you know the drill for this one), Most Fun to Drive award (the car you would most like to drive), Most Beautiful Color award (this is a real tough one!), the PCA Spirit award (the car best promoting the Porsche Club), Speed Demon award (the fastest you have ever driven the car you brought, under or, um, over the limit), the number of years of PCA membership, length of ownership for the car brought and, finally, Most Clever License Plate. While awards will be presented for each category, they will not be our typical fancy trophies. Rather, they will be fun framed pictures representing the individual category.
We are also pleased to offer Operation Safe Kids sign-ups! In 1997, the US Secret Service established the Operation Safe Kids initiative to bring child safety awareness to the public. Through this initiative, the US Secret Service provides parents an information card about their child, including biographical data, a current photo, and inkless fingerprints. If the child is ever reported missing, lost, or abducted, critical information can be retrieved quickly from their parents. Here is the link to the website https://www.secretservice.gov/NCMECpartnership.
Make plans to bring your Porsche and your family for this fun event!

We have a new venue for our 1st Saturday (Virginia) brunch. It is Firebird's Wood-Fired Grille located at 14020 Promenade Commons St, Gainesville, VA 20155 (located just off Exit 43A off I-66, just 5 minutes west of our former venue in Manassas). There is substantial parking coming off Linton Hall Road so we can park together. We will stake out a parking area that is a short walk to the restaurant. The restaurant opens at 11 am, so plan on arriving before so we can park together.
The restaurant offers brunch specialties (firebirdsrestaurants.com - brunch) as well as lunch (firebirdsrestaurants.com - lunch).
Come join us and meet some old friends as well as making new friends. And as always, we welcome new members and their Porsches and are more than happy to share information about PCA activities as well as our usual variety of conversation (which often revolves around things having little to do with Porsches!).
Our first brunch at this new location will be Saturday October 1 - once again, starting at 11 am!
