Celebration is in order! GGR ranked #1!

We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you – GGR was ranked as the #1 region with the largest membership increase in the United States for the month of March, out of 147 regions across the country! Woohoo!!

We are so grateful and ecstatic to know we are doing meaningful things that motivate people to be a part of our Porsche community.  It is wonderful to see the many friendships and connections that formed through this club, and I can’t wait to see where our continued growth and success will take us in the future. 

Thank you to all the GGR members who contributed to help us reach this remarkable achievement.  You should be proud!  Your dedication and participation are what drives us forward.  We appreciate you being part of this amazing journey.

Membership growth is a healthy sign that we are moving in the right direction, but we can’t rest on our laurels.  There is always room for improvement. We value your feedback and/or suggestions, and always appreciate hearing from you on how we can make things better.  Let’s work together to make GGR the Bay Area’s premier destination for Porsche enthusiasts!

Who is our spotlight of the Month?

Many of you may already be familiar with Diana and Jay from various events such as track days, motoring drives, and autocross… their passion for Porsche is truly inspiring.  Without doubt they are outstanding club ambassadors; approachable, warm, and welcoming to everyone around them.  Let’s take a moment to learn more about them!

What you might have missed:

We wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude to all the members who came out to our Saint Patrick’s drive and social mixer event on March 12th. We had a fantastic turnout!

It was great to see so many familiar faces, as well as meet and connect with new members of our community. We hope that everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed the opportunity to drive through some of the most beautiful and scenic Bay Area backroads and socialize with fellow members. 

Indeed, it was a terrific event!  But don’t take my word for it. Check out these pics of our happy attendees posing with their beautiful cars in front of the Blackhawk!

When is our next membership event?

Summer is shaping up to be an exciting time of the year, with countless events just around the corner. While getting behind the wheel of our cars is always thrilling, it is equally as enjoyable to take a moment to connect with other members and share our collective experiences.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we are working on a membership mixer event in next a couple months. This event will be exclusively for our members and will offer a wonderful opportunity to socialize and network in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Please stay tuned!

Last but certainly not least, the warmest congratulations to you on your anniversary with GGR!
