GGR Membership!

Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like we just welcomed 2024, and our event calendar(  is already getting full with exciting activities! Not sure whether you feel the same way, I find myself eager to participate in as many events as possible, yet also feeling like there’s never enough time to experience it all!

Our next adventure? Never stop driving, of course! But let’s also make time to connect and socialize. On behalf of the GGR board, I’m thrilled to invite you to an exclusive members-only social at Auto Vino Car Storage and Winery. Join us on March 23rd to discover the latest in GGR track, autocross, and social events, with all of the GGR board directors on hand to answer your questions. Share your Porsche stories and passion with fellow enthusiasts, all while savoring a glass of wine and exploring AutoVino’s stunning car collection. Plus, we’ll have two special guest speakers and a trivia session to add to the excitement! You won’t want to miss it. Register here before it’s too late:

Member Spotlight: Kurt’s Porsche Journey

One of our members, Kurt, describes himself as a car guy since before he could even drive. This sentiment resonates with many of us in the GGR community. Let’s take a closer look at Kurt’s Porsche journey and get to know him better.

Celebrating Anniversaries

Last but not least, please join me in celebrating anniversaries. If you know any of them, please drop them a note and say congratulations. If you don’t know any of them, it’s time to join the events and meet them in person!
