Default New Porsche owner saying hello

Took ownership of a 2010 Cayman S (PDK, SC) mid-Dec last year. Lots to learn!

Loving the car whenever I can get it out and this has been a nice winter (from Vancouver, sorry east cost folks)

Just saying "Hi!"

Cheers!
Zach

Welcome Zach! Definitely a good year to get a new "summer" car in Vancouver! Post up some pics of the new ride!

Cheers,

Mark

Check out our local PCA Region, Canada West. We are 500+ members in the lower Mainland and Greater Vancouver. All kinds of events for the enthusiast and for those like to drive their cars. Check our website "www.pca-cwr.org". As a PCA member you can choose Tours, Social evenings, Auto Crossing, Technical sessions and more. Also, if inclined our members are welcomed to Pacific Northwest Region's driver education sessions. The discount on parts and labour at the dealers is an extra bonus.

I can vouch that it's a GREAT club. Super good people, some great tours, and a wide selection of the best of the best in P-cars.

I'm a new member too. Just bought a Macan S. We live near NYC but my wife and I really love Vancouver. She is an Oregon State grad so that is my connection to The Great Northwest where I wish we could drive our new Macan around but we will fly and rent a Hyundi or something when we land in Seattle. Not driving our Porsche clear across the country.

Congrats and welcome! The local PCA club is a great group of guys. Weissach Cars and Coffee is a good, easy, event to make it out to and meet a lot of Porsche guys. It kicks off this year on April 11th:

Hey Zach. Welcome. Looks like a beautiful Cayman.
Yea, the PCA CWR is a great group. Can't wait for the BBC to start up again in the spring - an early morning drive up the Sea to Sky highway with lots of other great P-cars.
If you are into DE there are a couple of great tracks in WA state and a new one on Vancouver Island should be ready this season.

Didn't know about Thursday night meets.. I'm still a new member (aug 2015) and learning lots. People are fairly friendly... still meeting lots of people and hard to balance PCA and family time so it might take a couple years to know many people I would join even if just for access to some of the super cool regional events (BBC, GT1 Tech Event, PCA NWR has great events too, event's at local shops and member venues (SCAN, Juan, Uli's platz, etc.)

My 2c. Hopefully others can chime in too..
