More to come on this, mark your calendars!!

thanks for the advance heads up Chuck. We intend to return for 3rd Coast 2019 and do Porsche Palooza also if theyre 1 week apart?

hey Joe, no matter what you drive be great to see you again.

John, will you make it to Palooza?

Sterling, you're right! I saw a video with a tandem rear axel 928 El Co pickup. If it was available I'd grab it. It was very well done.

Porsche Palooza 2019 will be November 7th through 10th in Eureka Springs, AR. so it will be two weeks between 3rd Coast and Palooza this year. Dang F1 race has got to be moved. Chuck, call Bernie E. and tell him to stop F-ing with 3rd Coast by swapping weekends with 3rd Coast.

Daphne and I made it last year, so gr8 to catch up with the gang and the guys from Ozz were a blast...........kinda reminded me of you Joe but with a different down under accent.

Can you imagine a transplanted Scotsman living n Canada chatting with a pair of like minded Australians surrounded by Texans and Roger joined in all drinking............what a blast!!!!!

Some of the best people, we've ever met own this crazy car. Best money I've ever spent was on my 928, never knew y'all would be included in the purchase. I've cussed it more times than I care to admit, but I've never regretted buying it, and that's because of all of you !

Another benefit of that weekend is that daylight savings time doesn't end on the Sunday. That means I can drive all the way home in daylight.

Hope we get written driving directions again this year. That means nobody has to get stuck behind a a 73 year old driving a 38 year-old car.

Liz and I have it on our calendar.

Just made my reservation for 3rd Coast. Who is going to Porsche Palooza? Do we have a list of hotels, Mike told me last year that hotels are hard to find openings?

Here is some basic info about Porsche Palooza for those thinking about attending this year after the fun of 3rd Coast.

The event website is HERE and the event headquarters is the Convention Center at the host hotel Best Western Inn of the Ozarks.

The event agenda is mostly ala carte and typically consists of a selection of half-day and full-day drives on Thursday and Friday with an attendee-paid meal at the convention center Thursday night (or dinner in one of the MANY great area restaurants) and a sponsor-paid dinner of burgers and brats on Friday night (costs you a donation to either the children's shelter or the animal shelter e.g. box of diapers, sack of dog food, etc.) Saturday morning has a selection of 2 to 4 hour drives followed by a parade of cars through the historic downtown, then a people's choice car show (usually 300-350 Porsches of all flavors), tech sessions, and a final attendee-paid banquet with lots of door prizes. One prize is usually a full set of Bridgestone tires donated by one of our local sponsors and Bridgestone. Sunday morning there is a farewell continental breakfast of coffee, fruit, and pastries.

The website usually opens for registration in late September or early October, in other words as soon as we can get all the details for the year pinned down. The drive rosters fill fast with the Thursday/Friday tours usually capped at 25 cars per drive so register early. More cars than that is too difficult for one leaders/sweeper manage safely.

If the host hotel is full the other Best Western just down the street usually matches the event rate. There are lots of quaint B&B's if that is more to your liking along with two historic hotels, The Crescent Hotel (1886) and the Basin Park Hotel. (1905).
