President’s Address  -  June 2019                                                                                                     Jane Plit

And so, I blinked twice, and we’re in June, and the May elections have come and gone. My hope is that, whoever has the say in how this beautiful country gets run, uses this period to work properly as a government for the people. We have had some fabulous events in the first half of the year, and we have even more excitement coming up for the last half of the year.

Our Concours was held at Grand West Casino again, this year, in the Market Hall, and it was excellent. The cars were cleaned up and did their owners proud, and thrilled the visitors to the venue. Fabian Vettiger, one of our newest members, was recruited by Albert (President of Central) on a drive along Chapman’s Peak, and entered his gorgeous, beautifully reworked, orange 930. Thanks to Glen for his hard work in putting it all together, and special thanks to Sun Vacation Club, Motul, Sela and Xpel for their generous sponsorship. This was followed by the Awards Dinner, again, carefully planned and coordinated by Glen. Our gratitude to IONA WINES for their generous donation of wine for the event.

We have, with Ken’s assistance, redone the bar, and are currently working on the “kitchen” and the trophy cabinet. We’ve also renewed our naming rights to The Porsche Club Main Straight at Killarney, thanks to the generous support of our members.

Still to come, an assortment of motoring events, Sunday drives, and coming up in July, our Arniston Overnighter. Please contact Enver to confirm attendance for this popular event. The invitation will be sent out shortly.

Wishing you all a stupendous June, July and August, and I hope to see you at the clubhouse, or events.

Take care,
