Our first event of the year took place at Teton Pines on June 11th. Summer has still not quite arrived in Jackson Hole, but the evening turned out to be one of the nicest in the last three months.
Seeing all of the Porsches lined up in the parking lot made for a spectacular site against the snow covered Tetons. After libations and lots of good conversation, we were treated to a wonderful dinner and scrumptious desert.
Decorations were set up in advance by our trusty “Black-ops” team and Dick Beck did a terrific job as Master of Ceremonies. Thank you Dick! Ken introduced some of our new members; Michel & Rose-Marie Crouzillat (celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary this month), Andrew Weller, Richard Emond & Teddy and Stan Czarniak & Bridget. Welcome to our club! The most coveted club award, “Member of the Year”, was proudly presented to Dick & Val Beck for all of their participation and contributions to the club over the years. Congratulations to you from all of us in the club and Porsche, Germany! Scot finished up the official presentations by covering the upcoming summer events. They are guaranteed to be fun afternoons.
Our silent auction was a big success with some really nice things to bid on. Dick announced the winner’s names and Nancy Clancy handed out prizes. Even I had not seen some of the unique items that Scot collected. I was finally not out bid on something that I really wanted. Scot and Robin did a great job again in assembling some exceptional items for the raffle. Many of the prizes were generously donated by club members; A Fly Fishing Trip was donated from Tom Cook, Photograph of the Moulton Barn by Lou Hochheiser, Party Cruise on Jackson Lake from the Clancy’s, a drive in a Ferrari from the Italian-Stallion Alberto, Oil Change & Inspection from Brian Moore of RMC Motorsports and the Porsche Encyclopedia “Excellence Was Expected” from Scot Anderson. Thank you for supporting the club.
It was exciting to see everyone and their beautiful cars again after a long winter. I hope you enjoyed the evening as much as I did and look forward to seeing you at a future event.
