President's Message
Steve Barker
July 2020

Hoping everyone will have a Happy 4 th of July and that you were able to get out and find somewhere to enjoy the celebration!

As we look through the windshield let’s hope we see a better horizon than what we saw in the rear view mirror over the past few months.
My message this month is to inform everyone that our by-laws have been reviewed and updated by Past President Gregg Plourde and the By-Laws Committee that included Jerry Alter, Liz Houser, Mardi Quain, and Mike Dunn.  Many of the changes are adapting to the direction PCA is asking from the regions so some of it may be sounding a bit like legal wording. One of the areas I’d like to bring to your attention to is with term limits.
There will be 2 versions posted for your review for the purposes of gaining your approval. One version will be a “clean” version and the second version will include the edits. Some have asked for the ability to see the details. One other document will be an outline Gregg has provided that summarizes the changes.

Included in this month’s Drifter will be a letter from Gregg and the Committee outlining the work they did, it was intense I must say, and should be remembered as one of the most extensive updates the club has done since becoming established. They ask is for each member to read over the by-laws followed by submitting your vote when the polls open. Because this was such an extensive job hopefully you can give your BoD, Gregg, and the By-Laws Committee your approval.

The second update I’d like to provide is regarding the SVR Badge. Although the logo goes back to almost the point when the club was formed we were notified by the PCA Policy Committee that our badge using the caricature of a Porsche was in violation and we needed to change it. As we looked at our options the common message was the badge is almost 60 years old and rather than change the caricature to an official version of a Porsche that we would like to retire the badge with honors and dignity and have the members submit designs or ideas for its replacement. The request is to ask if there are any members that would like to be part of the Badge Committee to let me know. The goal is to pick a design to be unveiled at the SVR 60 th Anniversary in 2022.
Chair positions:
There was a list of Committee Chair positions that are open and a request for volunteers to fill them was sent. Great news! We have filled most of the positions as follows:
Social Media Chair – John Leet
Tech Chair – Al Price III
Historian – Yours Truly
Charity – Remains open
Thank you all for stepping up, we still need one more person to fill our Charity position.

If you have any comments or would like to tell us your story of what it’s been like to be a member of SVR please drop me a line!

We’re all here to make our club a fun place to be a part of, meet others and enjoy our cars, and SUV’s!

Stay healthy and be sure to wear your mask!
Rob Lee
Vice President

Also verify that event is happening with the event chair.

PDK (Pretty Darn Kwik)
Rik Larson, SVR Member

Did your kids (grandkids) get their entry in for the contest? Deadline is Tuesday, June 30th.
All of the SVR events in July have been cancelled except for:
- Weaverville Tour over July 4th weekend (Liz Houser)
- the board meeting (July 8th with Zoom)
- AX on July 18th at Thunderhill (registration is open now)
Several Zone 7 Events Cancelled
- the August 2nd concours at Reno has been cancelled
- the Mammoth Alpine Tour in July has also been cancelled
- the Loma Prieta 50th anniversary celebration has been moved to March 2021
·       latest PCA CDW (Communicable Disease Waiver) form
·       posted the DRIFTERS clear back to January 2015
Monterey Car Week
Now down to just 5 events (originally 30) as of June 16th. The Concours on the Avenue (Carmel) is still listed as well as the Ferrari event and one of the car auctions (Mecum). The races at Laguna Seca and the PCA Werks Reunion have been cancelled. See you in 2021.
Cayman GT4
The July issue of Road&Track has a nice article on the GT4. And the last page of the issue (titled P.S. ) makes a little dig at replacing the front spoiler.
Free A/B Gimmick Rally
Well I participated in the event. Everything was done online: using ZOOM for the rally school (twice); receiving electronically the general instructions and route instructions and score sheet (10 pages); the critique; the results; and of course the award certificate. I finished the event having spent about 4 hours on it on a Saturday afternoon. I finished 6th out of 9 entrants in the Senior class. Some experts spent more than 5 hours on it and did not finish. I only finished it by guessing at the answers for the last 8 questions. They had 70 entrants start the event and 42 turned in scorecards. TRC (The Rallye Club) out of the Bay Area had presented one of these previously and was planning on doing another 1 or 2 in the next 12 months because of the large turnout. They had entrants from 8 states as well as from the United Kingdom. You can check it out at       therallyeclub.org
Check out the website    treffen.pca.org    for the events in 2021 and 2022. The one in 2022 is the reschedule of the Colorado Springs event that was cancelled earlier this year (COVID-19).

Bylaws Update. Vote Coming in July
By Gregg Plourde, Past President

An important requirement by the Porsche Club of America is that the regions (SVR) review at least once a year their bylaws and update it, as necessary.

Your clubs Board of Directors reviews the changes PCA makes and updates our bylaws when the changes merit an update. The last update was in November 2015 and the previous one was in April 2002. Due to the many changes at PCA, a review and update was deemed necessary and back in April 2019 a committee was formed by the region Secretary, Mardi Quain to start the process. Volunteers Liz Houser, Mike Dunn, Jerry Alter and I joined Mardi in the project.

We compared our 2015 bylaws to the bylaw template provide by PCA’s National Policy Committee and we dug in.

There have been changes by PCA’s National Policy Committee to the way regions govern themselves. Clarifications in wording and processes were added to our bylaws to more in alignment with PCA guidelines.

We met many times and compared the two documents. Made our changes and submitted to the National Policy Committee for review. They came back with more changes/additions that we expected and had no less than three meetings with the National Policy Committee over the summer of 2019. We met with long time regular members of the club who have been in a leadership role in the past and reviewed in detail with them. We reviewed the bylaws with your Board of Directors in the fall of 2019 and it was determined that they were suitable for vote by the membership in the fall. A flaw was found in the terms section defining serving on the board. Since voting had commenced, it was too late to delay the vote. The final vote was to not approve. We made the corrected changes and other clarifications and reviewed these changes with all involved. They have all agreed that the proposed bylaws are now ready for a vote to approve.

So, what has changed? Along with aligning wording and processes to be in line with PCA guidelines, we made the following changes.
·         Moved the address from the bylaws into polices so a vote of the membership is not required should the need to change it arise.
·         Re wrote the definition of membership and classes of membership to match national guidelines.
·         Removed the area of membership section as PCA assigns a region to a new member by zip code.
·         Right sized the board to seven members, changed the terms of office for Board of Directors and made changes to the election process.
·         Made changes to each board member duties.
·         Added PCA recommended language to sections involving personal liabilities, conflict of interest, and financial oversight.
The schedule of review and voting will be as follows:
From July 1 - 14, we will post a detailed overview of the changes made on our SVR website along with the bylaws in two forms. One; a plain text in its final version, and two; a “redlined” copy showing the changes in context with the 2015 bylaws.
July 15 – 29 we will start the vote to approve the bylaws.
My personal thanks to the Bylaw Committee, they have put in a lot of time and effort on this project and we encourage you to vote to approve the new version.

Tour Update
By Liz Houser

The year 2020 has certainly presented challenges for our driving Tours. I’m hoping to bring back some day tours with smaller groups of cars before the snow flies.

After moving the date to August, I’ve realized the Ladies Driving Tour will have to be postponed to 2021 or 2022. Restaurants are just opening and they are very hesitant to host groups at this time.

Currently the ONLY tours set to move forward are the July 3-5th Weaverville Tour, the August 8 th Buck’s Lake Tour and the September Yosemite Tour. Ed. note, Mendocino Tour is also scheduled. Of course these are ALL tentative with fingers and toes crossed!

While it’s very unfortunate that these fun, social events have to be cancelled, the health and safety of our members is a top priority. Looking forward to driving with you all SOON.

SVR Charity Chair is still Open

The SVR Board of Directors recently reviewed the club chair positions and there are a number of opportunities that need to be filled and would like to ask for anyone interested to let us know and we can answer any questions you might have to get you started.
Charity Chair
SVR provides its members a common interest to get together as a car club and also serves a bigger purpose. Many organizations have greatly benefited thru the contributions that SVR has made. Examples such as funding the Sacramento Children’s Home with their programs to promote child safety, positive parenting, education, mental health, and improve the healthy functioning of families, Ride to Walk to enhance the lives of children and young adults with neurological disabilities by providing innovative therapeutic horseback riding activities and most recently SVR supported Angel Flight West , for those that have a rare condition, require specialized medical treatment or surgery, have a difficult to diagnose condition, or have a child with a rare or serious illness, that may need to travel a long distance to a center of excellence facility. In addition the club supported the Friends of the Folsom Zoo whose mission is to preserve and enhance the lives of the animals living at the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary.

There is a long list of organizations and especially the lives of people within our region that SVR has affected by the contributions made over its many years as a club.
The person we are looking forward to working with would be providing the leadership in bringing together the resources to hold a charity event and continue to contribute to a worthy cause that adds another shining star to why we are more than just a car club. The charity events have been held in back yards, online, or as part of a club event such as the SVR Christmas Party using auctioneers like Kirk Bradford and Kim Nelson to enhance the bidding process to silent auctions and even for the first time Lois Robert’s online auction. There’s no telling what can come out of the experience but you know one thing for sure is the people that benefit from your work will be extremely grateful for having an impact on their lives.

In The Zone
July 2020

When are We Going to Get Back to Normal?
With the state of California on the brink of entering phase 3 of the Covid-19 recovery, I have just seen a significant increase in events requiring a certificate of insurance from PCA national. On the books for June 2020 are 6 events with a tour planned for June 13 th by Loma Prieta Region, Sequoia Region has a tour on June 20 th and an autocross on June 13 th. Golden Gate Region is hosting their first autocross of their season at the Cow Palace in Daly City. Sierra Nevada Region is hosting a tour on June 20 th and Sacramento Valley Region is hosting the Zone 7 AX series event on June 27 th at Thunderhill Raceway Park.

However, as many counties in the state have started to open, there have been several counties that are still unable to get to their phase 3 recovery and these include Monterey and Mono Counties. Accordingly, Werks Reunion and the Rolex Monterey Historics have just been cancelled as well as Sierra Nevada Regions annual Mammoth Lakes tour, July 24-26 th, and the regions August 2 nd Zone 7 concours. I think the issue all of these events had was related to the size of the event.

On the PCA club racing scene, West Dillard, PCA Club Race Chair, he recently reported that so far for this year, they have cancelled 12 events so far. The series hopes to start up again with an abbreviated race schedule of 13 more races on the calendar. The first club race will be held at Brainard Raceway on July 5 th.

As restaurants have been allowed to reopen on a limited basis in many counties and cities throughout Zone 7, I expect to see a lot of new activity at the region level with these events. These events do not require insurance and I am not always aware of any new activities as we get out of our quarantines and the State of California gives businesses the green light to re-open. It is now possible to go to a barber or beauty salon and many of the casinos in the area have opened, albeit with restrictions.
Though these are small steps for getting back to normal, please keep in mind that just because the state has given permission for malls and most of our retail sector permission to open doesn’t mean that each business will be able to respond immediately. It takes time for a small or large business to interpret the new guidelines, get staff and place and undertake any structural modifications to their business to be in compliance and to protect the health and safety of their work force as well as customers. This is most apparent with club dinner events where many restaurants currently have limited groups to no more than 10 persons. Hopefully, this will change, and will allow more dinner events.
Although cases in the state of California have recently been on the rise, hospitalizations and deaths are trending lower. Hopefully, when our public school and university systems finally open and publish their guidelines, all will improve in short order.

PCA to Require All Event Attendees to Sign New Communicable Disease Waiver:
In my column from June, I mentioned a new Covid-19 release waiver form that needed to be signed by all participants of any PCA sponsored event. It has been revised and the new waiver should be available on your local region’s website. There were just a few minor changes. In cooperation with Motorsportreg, PCA has introduced Speed Waiver, which allows event participants to sign the general liability and Covid-19 release online. It will also provide storage as well as ease of verification that a member has signed the releases. The service is not free and not available for any other platforms.
Sequoia Region Hosts Autocross:
Sequoia Region organized their first autocross event of the season on June 13 th at the Madera County Airport. Attended by 20 drivers and with great weather, autocross chair, Larry Kirlin and team put on a fun event. Larry reported that this will be there last event of the early season as the months of July and August are much too hot in the middle of summer and that the club will resume events in the fall. Sequoia region has also started to schedule their weekly cars and coffee events and have been very well attended, even with the new Covid-19 guidelines issued by their county. Some restaurants in the Fresno area just opened for in restaurant dining, but with restrictions preventing large group gatherings for club dinners.

Golden Gate Region Secures New Autocross Site:
Golden Gate Region has found a new site to host their events after losing their beloved Alameda site at the end of last season. Golden Gate Region’s Ed Hunter and Himanshu Patel worked diligently through the early part of this year and searched for a replacement site and finally signed contracts for several dates at the Cow Palace in Daly City. Their first event of the season on June 28 th, with restricted attendance for only 50 drivers, was over-subscribed in less than two minutes. The wait list has more than 50 drivers all hoping to get a chance to participate. Not likely that they are going to?
Also landing a few dates at the Cow Palace is Loma Prieta Region which will be hosting two dual events at the Cow Palace with Golden Gate Region on August 29-30 and October 24-25.
Zone Autocross and Concours Series Schedule;
The schedule for autocross and the concours series has been one of constant cancellations and changes due to the coronavirus. The schedule was recently update with both Loma Prieta and Golden Gate Regions having signed contracts for dates at the Cow Palace which brings the zone autocross series to a total of 7 events. On the concours series, Monterey Bay Region has rescheduled their Zone Concours series event to October 25 th in the hopes that the wonderful community park they have had their event the past few years will loosen their large group gatherings to allow for this wonderful event to happen. The first concours event of the year for the series is likely to be on August 23 rd at Carlsen Porsche in Redwood City and hosted by Golden Gate Region. Zone 7 Autocross chairs, Roy Schauben and Simone Kopitzky are hopeful it will happen. Hopefully, all the regions will be able to deliver events on the dates as of this column. I am hoping that counties and cities will continue to open for business and allow many of our club events that are on the calendar.
