18 February 2021
Welcome to the website of the Cascade Region of the Porsche Club of America. Whether you are a Cascade member or a visitor, we are pleased you stopped by.
Cascade Region leadership is hoping that 2021 will be a better year for us all. Indications are that we may see some relaxation in the group size restrictions before long, which should allow us to begin easing back into club events in the coming months.
On top of that, we are looking forward to celebrating our 60th anniversary this year! Our club was chartered in October of 1961. We started in ’61 with 18 primary members––we now have 10 times that number!
Members should watch their email and maybe even subscribe to the event calendar below to get notices of the year’s coming events. Again, thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see some of you on the road before long!

Join Mike and Robin Vanderford for a last drive of the season on Saturday, October 12th. We’ll meander the autumn countryside through Jacksonville and the Applegate valley and on to Merlin where we will take a quick journey north on I5 to the old ghost town of Golden (we will take a short rest stop in Murphy, never fear!). Golden is interesting as a gold mining town known for having 2 churches and NO saloons. We will spend awhile there seeing the few remaining buildings and learning a bit about its history. Then we’ll back-track a short way to the Wolf Creek Inn for lunch.
Meet at Barnes and Noble in Medford at 9:00 am for a 9:30 am sharp departure. RSVP’s are needed for the lunch reservation. Email Robin at address provided in Eblast message.
Join us on our Drive to the Umpqua Valley on Saturday, October 12. We’ll meet at the Loews on W 11th in Eugene at 9:30 am and roll south promptly at 10:00 am. Our destination is Cooper Ridge Vineyards. There are no freeway segments on this drive! Some roads may be familiar, but they are all rural two lanes.
Cooper Ridge offers small plates for a light lunch for $15 or you are free to bring your own picnic. Rather than a formal wine tour, the drive will end at Cooper Ridge and participants can choose the wineries they’d like to visit. Click on this link for an excellent map of the wineries in the area.
Please RSVP for the Drive so that we can give an accurate count to Cooper Ridge.
Event start at European Cars and Coffee followed by Hyatt Lake Drive and lunch
Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 11, and plan to join us for the Central Chapter’s inaugural drive of the 2020 season (Finally!).
We’ll assemble at our usual gathering spot, Lowe’s on West 11th, at 8:30 am and take the long way to Monroe, followed by plenty of twisty bits to entertain you and your Porsche! Plan to pass through Cheshire, Alpine, Philomath, and Alsea, with a stop at Alsea Falls. If reopening progress allows, we’ll end with a group lunch.
A scenic drive along the Rogue Umpqua Scenic Byway and return on Oregon Hwy 227. Scenic stops and a picnic. Bring your own lunch and blanket.
