Is anyone going to the Porsche Parade in Keystone, CO during late June?

I am thinking about going. Made reservatons at the Marriott Resort in Vail. I'll make my final decesion to go/no go in the coming weeks.

Thumbs up Colorado PARADE 2009

Registration is still open for PCA members and families. Check PCA.ORG for details and registration.

We have over 750 cars registered so far, and for the 45+ of us who have been planning this for the last two years we would love to have as many as 900.

You must be a registered entrant with credentials to enjoy all of the activities, but you can view the Concours on Tuesday June 30th at the Keystone Golf Club by showing your PCA membership to ride the bus to the site.

Thanks for your post. Hope to see you there!

Leaving Sat June 27, staying overnight in Omaha.

Absolutely not going, despite the email... and the follow-up email from Vu Nguyen @ PCA.

I eat better Brie and drink better Wine at home than they're likely to have... and at half the price.

For the same money, a weekend in N.O. at the Monteleone with dinners at Antoine's and Commander's Palace seems emminently more fun.

No offense to anyone else... if you're going... Have fun!

Hey Paul, I was pretty sure if someone from this Forum was going, it would be you! Which car are you bringing? The sleeper?

I hope to go over for the day since I am only about 2 hours away from the site, but unfortunately that may be exactly the timeframe I am headed (moving) back to Wash DC. Keystone is a wonderful venue.

We will probably take the 01 to make it 9 consecutive parades in the same car. The 01 is all show and no go, the 98 is all go and no show.

We enjoy the trip there and back as much as the actual parade. Many years we have taken a week to get there driving back roads and hitting interesting places. Last year we spent a lot of time at and around the Tail of the Dragon.

We've made a lot of "parade" friends over the years and it's always great to catch up.
