2016 HOLIDAY PARTY

By Akemi & Murray Kane Cocktail Part anyone? The answer was overwhelmingly “yes,” judging from the huge turnout. Once more a stroke of genius by our social chairs, Cindy and Tony Cristello. Instead of a sitdown dinner we had an all-night cocktail party where guests could move freely around the room to socialize. Food, drink, […]

MY LIGHTNING DE EVENT

By Hubert King Good neighbors, my 996, DE essentials in waterproof bins and my folding chair I blame it all on Tom Swift. Early this year our track chair sent an enticing letter to the club members who had never participated in a DE event. There would be a Lunch and Learn seminar on January […]

2016 PORSCHE PARADE

By Sue Smith On Friday, June 17, I left New Jersey to enjoy the drive up to Vermont for my first Porsche Parade. I know many beautiful roads from the days when Dale and I used to go hiking frequently, leaf touring, and cross-country skiing in Vermont, so I wanted to take the time to […]

NNJR CIA TREK 2016

And so, under the watchful expert guidance of Gene Kirschner and Ken Smith of Autohaus (Peapack, NJ), we undertook pulling the motor […]

On December 19, Bill Gilbert and Sharon Doherty, on behalf of NNJR, presented a thank you plaque to Steve Opdyke, General Manager, and Rich Karas, Certified Porsche Brand Ambassador. […]

Driver Log

First, let me correct a mistake in the previously published DE schedule.  We will NOT be at Watkins Glen from September 18 through 29. Twelve days in a row at the Glen has a certain appeal, but human, mechanical, and financial fatigue do take a toll. We’ll have to settle for the 18th and 19th. […]

President Letter February

So here we are in the middle of the winter, but if you check the NNJR Calendar on our web site or the Around the Corner column in this magazine, you will see that there is plenty to do with more and more each month. I am looking forward to witnessing the magic performed by […]
