URGENT - From the DE Chair – Instructors Needed!
We are once again very short on instructors for upcoming away DE events. Watkins Glen is coming up fast and we are short of instructors, we are desperately short for Shenandoah and have a long wait list of students we are hoping to clear out.
- Watkins Glen – May 14-16
- Summit Shenandoah – June 5-6
- PittRace – June 25-27
…please sign up as soon as possible! We are trying hard to clear wait lists for students, but really need additional instructors to do that.
Thanks very much,
Bob Mulligan and Susan Kimmitt

Saturday 1 May 2021 - First Saturday Virginia Lunch!
We are meeting regularly now at the City Grille in Manassas for 1st Saturday Lunch (formerly brunch). New start time for now is 11:30 am. Come join us again!
Please note we will be observing current Virginia social distancing and mask guidelines, as will be the restaurant.
Where: City Grille, 10701 Balls Ford Road, Manassas, VA 20109
The City Grille is perfectly located just off of I-66 providing us rapid access to some of northern Virginia's best scenic roads. The City Grille has indoor and outdoor seating, a comprehensive menu of delicious breakfast and lunch meals, and ample parking. Pile everyone into the Family Truckster (or even a Porsche!) and come out for a great food and make some new friends.
Sunday 2 May 2021 - Spring Concours – 9am General Admission!
While registration for show car judging is closed, come on out to spectate at the Spring Concours! Previously known as the Deutsche Marque Concours d'Elegance, our Spring Porsche Concours has been "tweaked" to offer both spectators and entrants a safe and enjoyable experience at a wonderful new venue.
Registered show participants entry will begin at 8:30am, with general admission at 9am. All registered show participants must be on the field by 10am.
This is a great time to view the area's nicest classic and current Porsche automobiles. Food is available for purchase at the Brickmakers Café at the boat launch (recommended to order ahead) – or bring a picnic basket.

**PCA Potomac Covid-19 Community Service Event
The PCA Potomac DE and Community Service programs have for many years partnered with Stafford Junction, a nonprofit organization helping needy children and their families in Stafford County, VA. We have received the following appeal from Mark Cartledge of Stafford Junction, to help get meals to children who normally would get fed at school. If you are in a position to help out, please consider donating.
Covid-19 Response to Food Insecurity
We are asking individuals and organizations that wish to help, to consider a monetary gift that will allow us to provide emergency pre-packaged food items to children and families that live in poverty in our 7 neighborhoods, during the time school is closed. A monetary donation will give us the greatest flexibility in assisting with this need. Donations are accepted on our website: http://staffordjunction.org
