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!

The Texas 4000 is a charity bicycle ride by college students. The ride starts in Austin, Texas and ends in Anchorage, Alaska. Approximately 4000 miles. The ride consists of four different routes. The Sierra Route is scheduled to pass through Grants Pass on July 8th and eventually end up at the airport in Merlin where the riders will camp out over night. Along the way they hope to raise money for cancer research. Might be fun to stop by once they arrive to see how they are doing and offer some support.

This is a non PCA item of interest. Details provided below. For background Google www.scm1000.com Could be fun. Bring your park pass for Crater Lake.
Hi guys. You may recall I mentioned previously that the Sports Car Market sponsored “SCM 1000” this year included a stop at Crater Lake. I have learned this will occur at around noon on July 12. I thought it would be great to caravan a bunch of us to the Park that day to see cars and have fun like last year. Sports Car Market is excited to have us there and would like to talk about a similar event for Southern Oregon in the future. I think we should get there early so like last year I think meeting at Spicers resteraunt at 8:00 am for people wanting to go would be a good start.Spicers is out by the old Pier One location on Crater Lake hwy. please pass along my email to anyone interested and have them contact me by email so we know who to expect lest we leave without someone ! Thanks Ron 541-821-2177.
