Caravan: Amelia Island Concours March 7-10, 2019
 
Looking like a solid group of the community heading down.
Anyone forming a caravan, or interested in one ?
More than a couple in ATLANTA that would be interested in joining

Judged -vs- Corral
 
If enough of us show up we could have our own separate judged class ! :burnout:

My question to Tom Provasi.
Will all the transaxle cars be lumped into one group or be decided by model (24,44,68,28)?

Tom Provasi answered,
In the past, we have judged all the transaxles together. We do that since there are so few cars entered. If I get a large entry of one model, I have the option of breaking out.

Our judges don’t use traditional concourse points based score sheets, instead they rank the cars based on presentation, preparation, condition and ownership/usage etc. I think you’d enjoy the process.

Be nice to see more 928s at Amelia... one or two at most in recent years.

Unfortunately cant make Amelia but have registered for the Porsche Experience on March 12, should have the 93 GTS back together by then.

I will be at Werks Reunion and the Cars & Coffee with two 928s and my 15 year old's 924S (in judging). He turns 16 that weekend!

Places to stay
 
Where's everyone staying
Jacksonville or on the island

jej3 02-01-2019 07:14 PM

If you don't have a place to stay already on the island or in Fernandina, I think the only option less than $500/night might be Jacksonville. You almost have to book a year in advance.

We're staying in an AirBnB on the island.

@ jej3
 
I have a place to stay on north end of the island. I was curious about what general area might be best for socializing. I found out there is no bad place,

Planned Route for Amelia Island Caravan March 7th
 
PCNA will be welcoming US to tour the heritage display on March 7th. Should they have a docent available we will also get a tour of the facility, to be determined.
Just inform the guard you are with the Amelia Island Caravan and you will be granted safe passage. Obviously our plan is to tour the Heritage display and visit the 928 #1 for many people this is a once and a lifetime chance. (((drama))) Caravan is scheduled to Leave PCNA at 10am. Please plan accordingly.
This drive is 350 miles of not so much fun, 240 miles of it is nothing but hwy. The balance is along the coast line offering a few nice views. That's 5hrs without stopping. So in real time for a group enjoying the drive. Approximate time varies by adding 2 hours. Approximately 7hrs trip time.

Time out for LEG #1 is 10AM
Leg #1 start ONE Porsche Drive Atlanta Ga. 30354 End Love's travel stop 3009 Ga.-257 Dublin Ga. 30121 Approx 2.00 hrs 124 miles fuel and stretch Stop 30 min leg #1 = 2.50 hrs
Leg #2 start- Love's Travel stop Dublin Ga. End Restaurant to be determined LUNCH Stop 1.5 hrs leg #2 = 3.00 hrs (variable) Loves travel stop 8436 Ford Ave, Richmond Hill, GA 31324 if needed
Leg#3 start Restaurant to be determined End Amelia Island pkwy in Fernandina beach Fl. Approx 1.45 hrs 115 miles leg#3 = 1.45 hrs
The Schedule, weather, all times, traffic , mileage etc. are approximate so please stay flexible, excluding acts of GOD this is the plan.

HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN

Love's restaurant has no affiliation with Love's travel center the restaurant is actually next to interstate and has a very high review score. Also kind of funny it's already being called "THE LOVE'S TOUR" .
HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN

Thanks for the efforts arranging the caravan Scott. Hope you guys have time for a group shot with 928#1. Cheryl and I will be at various Amelia events and will be making a stop back at PCNA Atlanta on 3-11 & 3-12 after Amelia.
