Peachstate Concours events
are a wonderful place to socialize
with 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 website.
