Winterfest – TN Region

WINTERFEST – February 19 & 20, 2016

WinterfestThe Tennessee Region PCA invites you to Winterfest 2016 to be held, once again, at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga TN. We will be back in the Conference Center which is an ideal venue for holding a Concours.

Porsche of Chattanooga is hosting the banquet on Saturday night. We have secured a block of rooms at the Best Western, Heritage Inn, right across the street from the dealership. The motel is convenient to I-75 at mile marker 7. The Best Western rooms are modern and up to date. Mention the Porsche Club and the rates are $65.99 for two double beds and $75.99 for a king. The motel has promised a block of parking spaces, as well. It is very convenient to the Volkswagen plant. The Best Western is located outside of the Hamilton Place Mall traffic pattern, but is only a short drive away for the “shoppers” in our group. The on-site City Café is open 24 hours and is owned by a Porsche owner; the food portions are large and the desserts are very impressive.
The Volkswagen Conference Center will open for Concours prep on Friday. We will have appetizers at registration that evening. We will provide beer, soft drinks and wine, as usual. For supper we will feature home-made Chili by our club members. If you have a killer recipe, please let Lesa Clark know by phone at 706 271-6518 and bring it with you.

The Concours will be held Saturday morning. We will have plenty of coffee and Continental Breakfast food at the site. The lighting in the Volkswagen plant is scientifically designed to make all the car colors really “pop.” You need to see how great your car looks. We will also have a Tech Quiz during the Concours, so bone up on arcane trivia. You can never predict what might be on the quiz. A Barbeque lunch will be provided on Saturday afternoon, hosted by RapidRx drugstore.

Jerry Thompson has a tour in store for those who want to see the scenery in the surrounding area. We have plenty of Porsche country around Chattanooga, so you can see for yourself why we are called the “Scenic Center of the South.”

On Saturday evening, we will have a hospitality room before and after the banquet. The hospitality room is located off the Best Western lobby. Come see if we are still young enough to float the keg.

As most of you know, the weather is unpredictable, but Winterfest is, after all, held in the winter. We still have a lot of fun, so we invite you to come and see why so many out-of-towners brave the elements to attend. So, please mark Winterfest on your calendar.

Winterfest Registration will be handled the old fashion way, by mail and check. I am too old to begin to set up the on-line application. Entry fees and Courtney Robbin’s address are on the application. Early applications are appreciated so we can plan our meals and trophies accordingly.
