DM50 Car Show is coming up on April 16!

A big thank you to all that have registered and are participating in the DM 50 car show – great news – we are sold out again!
Please plan on meeting Ron Sable at 10am at the Swan/ Golf Links gate at DM for the show. We will line up on the entrance to the gate and caravan to the display area together. 
This should be a another great showing of Porsche cars for the Airmen and their families!
To see the brochure about the DM50, click HERE. Last year over 3,000 Airmen and their families participated in this event.  The Airmen and their families love the car show, the kiddie rides, static displays, and the picnic.

Help! Volunteers are needed to make the 2016 California Festival of Speed a success. We especially need volunteers for Traffic Control. This is the most important jobs of the festival. We need to make sure everyone is safe when cars and people are moving in close proximity. Please come out and show your support for Zone 8. Remember the CFoS success is fueled by volunteers.
We need people for Friday morning and afternoon, Saturday afternoon, Sunday morning and afternoon shifts. We need a few early mornings (6a.m. to 8a.m.) shifts for Friday and Saturday.
When you volunteer, please send us your name, phone number, email addresses and region’s name and when you can be available.
As a thank you we have free parking for all volunteers and a gift for anyone working at least one shift. As another incentive, the Zone will once again share some of the Festival profits with the Regions based on the level of volunteerism from each region.
Let me know if you have any questions or need any additional information.

Sincerely Yours,
Janice Witteried
CFoS Volunteer Coordinator


We’ve given our website a bit of a facelift! We’re pleased to reveal our new look, with a sleeker design and easier-to-find features. Our new site more effectively highlights what’s most important to us and to our Porsche community. Take our events, for example. Previously tucked away in a couple of different Photo Scrapbooks, they’re now all together under our “Photo Gallery” option with a robust archive of events over the last decade. Our calendar is your go-to resource for information on our upcoming driver and social events, tours, meetings and anything else we have going on that you need to know about. Look at our simplified navigation across the top of the web page and simply pick a topic … and you’re off!

We will now also be highlighting our advertisers on our home page and in our footer so they have greater visibility. In addition, we have added the websites of other Zone 8 Regions and have a link to our SAR Facebook page. You also will be able to access Porsche’s Twitter, YouTube and Instagram pages through our website, so check them out!
