Las Vegas Region PCA Newsletter
Toys for Tots
The Las Vegas Region continued its philanthropic tradition by partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

Throughout the year, we collected new toys and monetary donations. Our members gave generously, as they knew their efforts were helping less fortunate children in our community to enjoy the holidays. 

The Club donated $5,650 and gave in excess of 150 new toys. Thank you all for contributing to these efforts!
Monthly Membership Brunch @ Red Rock Country Club
Our monthly brunch was once again graciously hosted by The Red Rock Country Club.

At brunch we welcomed the new faces of our most recent members.
Charles & Barbara Washington
Harry Rubin
Ed Mugg & Ruby Pena
Poker Rally
Following the December membership brunch, teams set out to follow route instructions and try their luck with cards.

After each leg of the Rally, teams drew additional cards to fill their poker hands. Pairs of 7's seemed to be most team's hand.

Charles and Barbara Washington were the winners and had their first choice of the prizes.
Porsche Ice Experience
Porsche invited enthusiasts out to Lapland Finland for a once in a lifetime driving experience.

There in Levi, Porsche setup a frozen racetrack of sorts. Owners and enthusiasts were encourage to push the vehicles that Porsche had brought out to their limits. Under careful supervision from professional drivers of course.

The selection of vehicles brought out to the frozen tundra included 911 Carrera 4 GTS for less experienced drivers, all the way up to the 540hp 911 Turbo S. This event allowed enthusiasts to both have some fun in a brand new way, and also taught them how to drive their Porsches in inclement weather. A full video documenting the Porsche Ice Experience can be found below.
