This is our second annual hosting. There will be plenty of good cheer, at a venue right next to the hotels (where we have club discounts arranged) and turnpike just North of the City. It will also include a nice impromptu gathering of Porsches of all varieties. All local and distant Porsches welcome. Starting at 5 pm to ?

Saturday, July 19th:

• International Car Show on the Golf Course – over 2000 cars on display (Mini is PVGP Marque for 2014)
• ARPCA Catered Tailgate Party (starts at 12:00 Noon - open to all participants who register through the ARPCA website and msr)
• Top 10 Peoples’ Choice Concours (open to all Porsches registered through the ARPCA website and msr)

• Additional meal ticket for either day: $15 per person

To Register, go to our Club's website at ARPCA.com » PVGP 2014

See you at the races!

Camping around Pittsburgh

Jsceash,

Please Google Raccoon Creek State Park. It is about a hour away from Pittsburgh.
We sometimes go there just to get back to nature. Park is very clean. Get your supples before hand. Park is in Hookstown, Pa. The phone number for the park is
724-899-2200. Reservations can be made at phone no 1-888-727-2757.
Sincerely,

Bill & jinx.
