RMR’s first driving tour of the season is Sunday, April 19, 2020.  We are heading down to one of our favorite restaurants in Colorado Springs, The Edelweiss German Restaurant.  Participants must pre-register for this drive.

Everyone will need to sign the PCA liability waiver form(s) during check-in; for members with children under the age of 18, a minor liability waiver form will need to be signed by one parent(s) or legal guardian(s).

All drivers must attend a drivers’ safety briefing that will be held after check-in and prior to departure.  We will have multiple “run groups”.  You will be given a colored dot when you check in that needs to be placed on the upper driver’s side of your windshield.  The colored dot will designate which “run group” you will be driving in during the tour.

Meet at The Perfect Landing Restaurant at 9:45 AM.  Departure will be 10:15 AM to 10:30 AM.  The route is I-25 South to Castle Pines Pkwy. and N. Daniels Park Rd., US 85 and CO 105 (S. Perry Park Rd.) through Sedalia, Palmer Lake and Monument and then I-25 to Colorado Springs to The Edelweiss German Restaurant.

Lunch is at 12:00 PM in the Biergarten (weather permitting).  Otherwise downstairs in the Bratskellar.

Dear members,

I wrote to you recently about COVID-19 and the cancellations of events as a result.  As I previously discussed, the RMR Board would review our events on a rolling basis and determine what additional events should be cancelled or postponed. 

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 has become a national emergency.  Both Governor Polis and President Trump have issued guidance and directives making clear that the RMR Board must take further action:

The April 2nd membership social and April 4th Breakfast Club North were previously cancelled by the Board
April 11th Breakfast Club is cancelled
April 14th Board Meeting will be by phone conference
April 19th Edelweiss Tour is cancelled
April 25-26 Autocross and School is cancelled/postponed
May 2-3 HPDE at HPR is cancelled
May 2nd Helga’s Tour is cancelled 

We have “penciled in” the autocross school on the weekend of May 30th assuming we can resume events at that time.  We will provide you more information as the date nears.

The Board is continuing its policy to review later socials, tours and driving events on a rolling basis, and determine what action to take based upon the status of COVID-19.

I continue to be in contact with the presidents of other large PCA regions.  The communications are allowing adoption of consistent policies.

We will keep you advised of the quickly evolving COVID-19 developments related to RMR.

By and for the Board of the Rocky Mountain Region, Porsche Club of America, Inc.
