Peachstate Concours events
are a wonderful place to socialize
other Porsche owners,
trade preparation tips,
and "Just have FUN".
Concours also provide a wonderful opportunity for having a enjoyable Sunday afternoon family event.
Have you ever attended a Concours? If not, then 2017 is the year! If
you have attended in the past, then plan to join other club members for
another year of great looking Porsches at great locations. All of the
wonderful venues that made 2016 a successful year will again be
available to host our 2017 Concours events.
Based on the fantastic response to the addition of a second "Meet and
Greet",we plan to have two "Meet & Greets" again this year. The
season will open on March 18th with a combined Concours school and
Judge training program. The Concours school will provide members with
tips and information to help them prepare for participating in a
Concours, and the Judging program will provide training for members who
are interested in becoming Concours Judges. Then on April 8th club
members will get an opportunity to see other club members' cars and
socialize at the first "Meet and Great".
Next on the calendar will be the season's first Concours at the Lillian
Webb Park in Norcross on May 21st, followed by our summer Concours
event in July held in Hennessy's air-conditioned service area. Half way
through the season will be our second "Meet and Greet" hosted by
Porsche Atlanta Perimeter on August 12th, open to all club members,
even those who have not participated in a Concours. Our third Concours
will be on September 2nd during the club's annual Rennfest event. The
season will end on October 1st at the Stoney Point private airfield in
Cumming. All Concours events are open to both club members and the
public, so plan to attend and bring your friends, especially those
friends who also have Porsches.
If you haven't shown your car in the past, consider entering a Concours
in 2017. All Porsche owners are welcome and all models and years are
desired. For those new to Concours we will continue our successful
"Rookie' program. Concours entrants will be divided into 2 groups,
"Rookie" and "Experienced" based on their participation in previous
Concours events. Those entrants who are participating for the first
time, OR who have participated in only one Concours in a previous year
will have the opportunity to compete in the "Rookie" group. Those who
have participated in more than two Concours previously, will compete in
either the "Street" or "Touring" group with the experienced
participants. Best prepared cars will be recognized and awards
presented in "Rookie", "Street", and "Touring" groups.
The new "Rookie" award categories will enable new entrants to
participate on a level playing field, instead of competing against
experienced Concours club members as in the past. It will also
encourage "Rookies" to attend multiple Concours events to gain
experience while meeting even more Porsche enthusiasts during the year.
Continuing the "Rookie" program is aimed at ensuring the Concours
events deliver member value and provide a "FUN" environment for all,
participant and spectator alike. We will also continue the "'Rookie of
the Year" award to recognize the best prepared car and owner.
Keep abreast of all Concours events and results in upcoming email
blasts, club postcards, and in the Concours section of our club
