Maybe the 19 cars showed up because two of our members made fresh biscotti and cookies with Porsche logos! Yum…

Nelson Weekend was a Huge Success!!!

Day 1 – Met in Vernon, took the Needles Ferry toward Nakusp. Epic roads as we enjoyed the twistys with just a bit of rain before Nelson. Great to meet up with some of our Kootenay BCIR members.

Day 2 – Took the Balfour Ferry to Crawford Bay and visited the North Woven Broom where they made all of the brooms for the Harry Potter films. Continued on to Creston and had lunch at the beautiful Skimmerhorn Winery. After lunch we returned to Nelson via the Salmo Creston highway and had to wait for a moose to cross the highway. Dinner was at the scrumptious All Season Cafe.

Day 3 – Coffee to start the day at the Oso Negro Coffee House then some members split off for the return trip home via Rossland. Stopped for lunch in Grand Forks at Board Room Cafe where we were hosted by one of our members to some fabulous food.
Thank you to everyone that made this a wonderful getaway weekend!

Black Rock Weekend Event in Ucluelet

Some BCIR members attended the 9th Annual Black Rock Resort weekend hosted by the Vancouver Island Region. We were excited to have Mark Prusynski, the new Zone 6 Rep from Boise Idaho, join in on the weekend after hearing such great things about the event.

A bunch of cars met in Nanaimo and drove together along the twisty roads to Ucluelet. Weekend events included a show and shine on the downtown dock, autocross, breakfast and dinner with fireworks provided by the Volunteer Fire Brigade, scotch tasting, poker run, parade through town and wind up banquet.

Through auctions and donations, the Porsche group raised a whopping $22,000 for Cops for Cancer “Tour de Rock” and more for the local Volunteer Fire Brigade.

A big thank you to August Luxury Motorcars for hosting this great day!
Over 30 BCIR vehicles showed up to the race track in Oliver, BC. The highlight was a pace lap which gave many members a first hand look at this magnificent track.
A few members participated in half day hot lapping.
All of the members walked away with big smiles!

BC Interior Region Wins Big!


BCIR was honoured to win the 2017 Greatest Factored Growth award at the national PCA Parade event held in Spokane Washington. It was awarded to the club that added the greatest percentage of members in a calendar year. Out of the 144 local regions across US and Canada, BCIR was first.
Brad Pape, president of BCIR, accepted the award on behalf of the club.

Porsche Parade – Spokane 2017

Parade is the “big” Porsche Club event of the year: our annual national convention. Parade has a potpourri of activities and club members from all across North America come together for this once a year extravaganza to participate in a week of competitive events, to socialize and enjoy their cars, with seminars and tours adding to the event’s variety. For many club members, Parade is their big vacation for the year. It provides them with an opportunity to see new parts of the country as well as to visit with PCA friends that they only see once a year, at Parade!

Here are some photos of BCIR members from 2017 Parade in Spokane Washington.
