Virginia Fall Foliage Drive and Dine Returns on November 8

Virginia Fall Foliage Drive & Dine

Our Maryland Fall Drive may have sold out, but do not fret! For our Virginia Fall Foliage Drive and Dine on November 8, we will enjoy a scenic drive across leafy Loudoun County to the historic Ashby Inn for brunch, and top it off with the best dessert - another scenic drive, across Mount Weather, leading to the wonderful Sunset Hills Vineyard and winery, including a tour and tasting.

We will meet (socially-distanced, or course) at a rally point north of Manassas, Virginia around 10:15 am , heading across some of our favorite Northern Virginia back roads, bound for Paris, Virginia. The Ashby Inn will be greeting us around 11:30 am with a three-course gourmet brunch, either on their covered and heated patio or inside the inn itself, depending on weather conditions.

Porsches, Planes and Seafood!!

Porsches, Planes and Seafood 2020

This event is currently sold out and taking waitlist registrations only.

Day drives have returned!! For our long-awaited first day drive of the season on Saturday August 8, we will take a back road run from Bowie, MD down to the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum. One of the most-loved attractions from last year's Lighthouse Tour, we have combined a morning visit to the PAX Museum with a lunch to follow at the Bugeye Grill in nearby Solomons.

We will depart from our rally point in Bowie (to be provided to registrants prior to the drive) by 8 am. There is a good breakfast place, Rip's Country Inn. off US 301 near our starting point, plus other outlets if you want to get breakfast before. We'll advise that you use the restroom before beginning our journey.

The 90 minute drive will take us through scenic back roads in Charles and Calvert Counties before our arrival around 9:45 am at the PAX Museum. The treat will be that you will get to drive onto the flightline and be guided to a park ing space next to classic naval fighter planes that once called the nearby PAX Naval Air Station home, including the F-14 Tomcat, the A-6, and other legendary military aircraft. Although the museum's rear building and flight simulators will not be available (thank you COVID), you will be able to enjoy the main museum building and the planes along the flightline. Please note that masks will need to be worn inside the museum (and preferably outside in the company of others at this event) and social distancing practiced as best as possible during your visit. Our $10 registration fee for this event ($8 for children 5-12, under 5 free) will include admission to the museum, which is sharply discounted from last year.

Around 11 am, we will depart for our lunch stop at the Bugeye Grille, whose manager Jimmy V is the proud owner of a 986 Boxster. We will park outside the restaurant and enjoy great seafood either on the patio or indoors, weather permitting. Everyone will be responsible for their own checks here. Please note we will be limited to 30 people for lunch. We look forward to seeing you once again!!!

The Greenbrier to Host Fall 2020 Treffen

Greenbriar

Story by Alan M. French. Photo by Kristen Crowley

The Porsche Club of America’s ninth Treffen North America will be hosted at the historic Greenbrier resort, deep in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia. This is the first ever PCA Zone 2 Treffen and our very own Potomac Region is excited to join the First Settlers and Shenandoah Regions in supporting the five day event, September 16-20th, 2020.

The German word “Treffen” is a verb that means, “To meet.” Porsche Treffens are organized by various Porsche groups around the globe each year.

For those unfamiliar with the PCA Treffen, they are prestigious, multiday events at premier locations in North America, open to members from all regions. PCA National organizes two per year; in Spring and Fall. You may have seen invitations for this year’s Spring Treffen at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Treffens are very popular and attract a wide diversity of Porsches and Porsche people.
