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.

2021 is rapidly coming to a close. Both chapters held very successful annual banquets last month, with total attendance of over 70 people! While we still dealt with COVID-related restrictions throughout the year, we were able to resume mostly normal monthly drives as well. All in all, it has not been a bad year for the Cascade Region.

I was just comparing some stats for the past 12 months. As of Nov. 1, 2020 we had 183 Primary Members (293 including Affiliate members—spouses, family, etc.). Today, the count is 211 Primary (326 total). That is pretty significant growth over the past 12 months. While obviously we are not going to start having 50-60 people at a Cars & Coffee or 30+ cars on a drive anytime soon, it is nice to see that we are not fading away.

For 2022, we are hoping to build on the good start we got this year when the COVID restrictions started to ease. More drives, tech sessions, maybe a car show or two, and even a PCA Treffen near by. These are all opportunities to get involved, not just in participating, but also in planning, organizing and helping. If you haven’t gotten involved at that level yet, give it a try! It’s pretty rewarding!

Again, thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see some of you on the road before long!

Join us for a tour of twisty backroads along the Willamette and Santiam Rivers, arriving at Oregon Garden just before noon. The route was put together by two former members and was enjoyed by all who participated the last time it was a featured PCA Drive! There are several lunch choices… picnic in the Garden, purchase a lunch at the Little Leaf Cafe in the Garden’s visitor center, eat at the Oregon Garden Resort, or choose from several good restaurants in Silverton. Admission to the Garden is $12, with discounts for AAA and Seniors; an $8 rate if we can get early RSVPs for a minimum of 15 people. So RSVP to centralchapter@cascade-pca.org soon.

Assemble at the old Shopko / new Winco on Coburg Rd near the Human Bean at 9:00 AM. We’ll roll promptly at 9:30 AM.
