Membership in 2024! (and the 2023 Holiday Party)

Hey there, GGR fam! Happy new year! I hope your holidays were all about good times, good vibes, and quality moments with the people who matter most. As we embark on a new year, I hope the short winter break allows you to recharge for the exciting adventures ahead. 

So, who else is itching to take their Porsche out for a spin every weekend? 🚗💨  I feel you! But hey, a little rain never hurt anyone, right? It just adds that extra level of excitement when the weather is clear for our sunny day drives. And let’s be real, California always appreciates rain in the winter:)

Now, let’s talk about the ride we’ve had over the past year since I stepped into the role of Membership Director. It’s been a blast, connecting with familiar faces and making loads of new friends. If we haven’t crossed paths yet, I am looking forward to the chance to meet in person, share stories and experiences at our upcoming events. Serving our community has been an absolute honor.

Our GGR family continues to grow, and as Membership Director, my goal is to reach out to as many members as possible. It’s important for each of us to feel a sense of belonging to a community driven not only by our shared passion for Porsche, but more importantly, it’s about the incredible individuals who make it special. You belong here!

As we say farewell to the extraordinary year that was 2023, our holiday party at the Blackhawk Museum was an amazing celebration. Congratulations to all the award winners! Your dedication and hard work truly paid off. Take a moment to relive the joy through a few captured moments in these photos. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for our upcoming events; you won’t want to miss out!

Are you ready for 2024? Check out the GGR calendar – it’s starting to fill up with track events, autocross, Cars and Coffee socials, and more. My commitment remains strong to connect with every member, regardless of your specific interests. More membership events are on the horizon. It is the perfect opportunity to make new friends and strengthen existing ones!

Our Spotlight program, initiated last year, has been a blast. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading the inspiring stories shared by fellow GGR members. Your willingness to share your stories with our 3800+ GGR family members is what makes our community special. 

Speaking of Spotlight, let’s extend a warm welcome to Jessica, our first spotlight member of 2024! Did you know Jessica has won the PCA National Hoffman Rally Award for the lowest score on the Parade rally 13 times? Additionally, she has won the SCCA National Championship 13 times as well! Jessica’s amazing story awaits, and I look forward to joining her upcoming Ted Talk-style lecture on rallies (Rallymaster 101).
