From the Editor

by Jamie DeRuiter, der Riesenbaum Editor

   I want to thank the usual suspects and my new writers for the great content I'm getting lately.  Without you all this newsletter would be less interesting.  Your articles provide our readers with a glimpse into what it's like to attend one of our events.  I know, from being a reader myself, that reading these articles makes you dream of doing it yourself.  When I was mid restoration on my 912 the articles I read in the der Riesenbaum helped inspire me to get the project finished so I could go on adventures like the ones I was reading about.  A lunch run.  A winery tour.  Heck, maybe I'd even try an autocross.  So to all of you that help me put this newsletter together, thank you!

  The year is far from over and we have some fun events coming up soon.  If you've never been to the Ledson Concours you should really make an effort to go see the wonderful Porsches that show up there.  I've shown my car there and have attended as a spectator a few times.  The wine is wonderful and the venue is gorgeous.  Oktoberfest, later this month, looks to be a blast and is a great way to meet our new members.  If you're a new member and want to meet other members of our club this event is made for you.  No, really, it's our new member mixer so come on out!  If you have not had a chance to autocross this year your time is running out.  We have two events in October so come get your fill before the leaves start falling.

Shift Toward Adventure,

  The summer sure seems to have sped by this year.  Daylight hours are already growing noticeably shorter, and we've had a few clear, crisp mornings that foreshadow the onset of autumn.  Regardless of that change, the Club continues to put on a great slate of events.  We had our highest turnout of the year at the August autocross, which featured one of the most enjoyable courses ever.  Many thanks to the ever-imaginative Bob Schoenherr for the great design.  We also held two winery tours, at Pech Merle and Maple Creek.  Although I was unable to attend Maple Creek this year, I've heard that the event was good as always, and that the winery was pleased with the sales generated by the event.
  Of course, there was one more PCA event - Werks Reunion down in Carmel, which is part of "Holy Week" on the Monterey Peninsula.  Brenda and I always arrive at the beginning of the week, which allows us to take in several free car shows in Carmel and Pacific Grove.  The Concours on the Avenue, on Tuesday, is most impressive, with hundreds of cars that cover a broad spectrum of the car world.  I highly recommend the experience.  On Wednesday, there is the "Little Car" show, which features cars with 1,600cc or smaller engines.  Lots of original Minis and other cool cars to see there.  Finally, on Thursday, there is the Tour d"Elegance, which is associated with the Pebble Beach Concours.  Many of the cars featured on the lawn drive into Carmel for lunch, where they park for a couple of hours, allowing the general public to get a good look at them before they head to the golf course for the concours.
  For us, the Werks Reunion on Friday is the main event.  This year, there were nearly 1,000 cars parked in the paddock, and there were probably 100+ cars entered in the various concours classes.  In contrast to 2015, which was brutally hot, the weather this year was perfect, and the smoke from the fires to the south did not interfere with the fun.  It was a successful event for Redwood Region members, as Thorsten and Simone Kopitzki won second place in their concours class, and Craig Steele won a set of Michelin tires, which was timely, as he wore his current set out on the trip along the Lincoln Highway!
  Your Club has a nice slate of events in September.  The first weekend features another autocross AND the ever-popular pool party held at the Bergman's residence.  Later in the month we have the Zone 7 concours at Ledson Winery, and the Oktoberfest gathering, which will double as our new members' meeting.  So come on out, and get to know your fellow members better!  Oh, and don't forget to drive your Porsche.  They get sad when they just sit in the garage!
  As always, we welcome your input about any of our current or future events.  Please contact any of us with questions or concerns.

Third Annual Pech Merle Winery "Va Va Vroom"

By Greg Fuller

  Saturday dawned as bright as a crisp Savignon Blanc with the gentle warmth of roasted goat cheese - a perfect day for my re-entry into Redwood's wine touring calendar after a long absence courtesy of my recent relocation north and east to the floor of the Napa Valley. As I observed heading out the door, "I'm driving from wine country to wine country - what better way to do it than topless in the Targa?"
  Arriving at Kals' midway between the 10 o'clock meet and 10:30 departure times, I found many of the usual suspects - various nine-something-somthing 911 derivations and Boxsters, as well as a bit of variety displayed by a beefy Cayenne S and sleek Panamera.  Twenty-six entrants all told, including our soon to be winery hosts, Cheryl and Bruce Lawton, generous proprietors of our end destination, the Pech Merle Winery Tasting Room in Geyserville.
Driver's meeting at Kal's

  Thankfully there was enough carnauba and elbow grease in the parking lot to distract from my own sad state of brake dust and road debris coated fenders, the result of having left my bucket and brushes back at our former residence.
  As usual, Kurt laid out a fine forty-mile course through the countryside- enough curves to make things interesting but not so intestinally challenging as to leave our shotgun riders ill-prepared to enjoy the fine wines and edibles to come.  As a matter of fact, I was thinking how kicked back and mellow the route was as we navigated through Mark West Springs Road, Porter Creek and Petrified Forest. Why, Irene would have been more than happy to co-pilot this stretch knowing there was a fine tasting at the end. Ah, but then came 128. Perhaps not so much, I reflected, down-shifting into second before powering around a 15 mph hairpin. Meanwhile, the day and my oil temp was heating up.
  As we arrived, thirsty but otherwise without incident, our host Bruce directed the synchronized parking display while Cheryl welcomed us into the Peche Merle tasting room,  an airy Old West structure with impressive back bar, cleverly decorated with vintage collectibles and graphics, including the Va Va Vroom poster made specially for this year's event.  Such clever ornaments, combined with the fine victuals contributed by club members now being amassed at the rear of the shop almost caused one to forget about the wine while passing through towards the back patio where the grill was firing up. But not quite.  Our hosts and their able helpers did not allow such an oversight, as the first tastes of their very fine Savignon Blanc were pressed into our hands - post haste.

  Meanwhile, on the back patio, smoke was beginning to rise. And thankfully it had nothing to do with worn out rings or leaky head gaskets. No, it was the afternoon's Designated Pit Master, Kurt's brother-by-another-mother, aka Chef Rauch, was grilling up some fine rosemary and teriyaki chicken breasts to accompany the impressive array of salads, sides and desserts. The latter being so tempting that the younger members of our entourage were unable to resist sampling them as starters.  Then again, they also weren't able to enjoy the other fruits of the day, the excellent offerings of Syrah Rosé, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Cabernet  Sauvignon , all fine products of the labor of the Lawtons and their crew.  Each had his or her favorite. Many thanks to one and all for supporting our hosts by taking bottles of those favorites home.

  After point of satiation was reached, past track tales and tech tips gone over and good company generally enjoyed, we slowly dispersed on our separate journeys home - with perhaps ample time for stops at one or two more vinous watering holes. Which was fortunate, since I passed a display showing 101 degrees while heading through St Helena.  Not that I believe it.  But it does cause one to reconsider installation of that aftermarket A/C, and stop for just one more taste...

  Thanks again to our hosts Bruce and Cheryl, their staff, Kurt the Cook, Kurt the Organizer, and everyone who participated to make this another excellent day with our club and its fine machines.

Maple Creek Winery Tour 2016
by Ben Davoren
On a gray Saturday morning, a small but enthusiastic band of Redwood PCA members and a guest or two got together at the usual Sunday Drive launching grounds (Kaffe Mocha in Santa Rosa) with one common goal: drive to a great winery with sunny skies for a picnic lunch! Maestro Kurt Fischer led us out on a 57 mile creative drive in his trusty Weissach 911SC, first west along the beautiful Dry Creek Valley, and ultimately through picturesque Cloverdale and onto one of Northern California's great scenic roads: Highway 128 towards Boonville. Don Magdanz graciously agreed to drive sweeper but for most of the drive he could see all the way to the front of our very colorful Porsche Dozen so there was no chance of anyone getting lost!

After enjoying Kurt's steady pace for a little over an hour, just past Cloverdale the sun came out and the weather headed for the perfect 78 degrees we were all looking for. We aimed towards the Anderson Valley with its sweeping hills and tremendous old oak groves. Our destination, the Maple Creek Winery in Yorkville, had opened its tasting room just for us, and Redwood PCA Vice President Craig Steele had gotten there early, tending the barbecue for our chicken feast. Sorry you missed the drive Craig, but glad you went, the chicken was excellent!

Houston, the effervescent tasting room director, led us through a full-on tasting of nearly all of Maple Creek's offerings: from a wonderfully cold and crisp 2012 Estate Chardonnay through a satisfying selection of Reds, ending up with a chocolaty fortified Dessert Wine. He allowed us to buy either by the glass or bottle to share under their signature valley oak tree, picking the best pairings for the potluck salads, sides, and desserts we all brought to complement Craig's chicken. Our group was not only fun but had some culinary talent as well! A generous 'fourth bottle free' offer ensured no one went home empty-handed.

This is a really great spot in an area that doesn't get the name recognition of the Napa or Sonoma wine-growing areas. Having the winery grounds to ourselves meant we all got to know each other better and hear all sorts of new stories. Thus, it was another successful Redwood Region event of the kind we would all encourage new members to attend!
One special note for those interested in visiting this area: there are a lot of terrific ways to come back home at the helm of a machine for which there truly is no substitute. Perhaps on the top of that list: Mountain View Road from Boonville to Point Arena. Thanks for the tip, Don!

Third Annual Werks Reunion
by Craig Steele 

  On August 19 th  , 2016, was the third annual Werks Reunion in Carmel Valley at one the local golf courses. It is a mini Porsche Parade of over 1,000 autos at every level of vintage and performance. Werks is a special experience and I love the venue of the endless grass fairways to stage the concourse and corral. There is a feeling of elegance seeing your car on the green with all its sisters and brothers.
  My Werks day starts early.  I had to report at 5:45am when the only lights were my headlights or an occasion lamp pole. Parking in the corral was interesting; Gator, my 987 Cayman S, was first in an empty fairway in the dark. I found the volunteer tent and was told to count all car riders and people coming from the church parking lot. I enjoyed watching all the folks entering the event and tallied about 1,000 heads by 8am, not counting the people inside before I started counting. I worked with Judy from SVR (Sacramento Valley Region) who later joined us at the Pacific Grove Car concours and tour held by the local Rotarians. I was relieved about 8:30am so I headed to the breakfast vendors for a meal and coffee.

  I observed a number of Redwood cars entered in the competition. What was most appealing were the members from our region volunteering for key Werks jobs like Simone Kopitzki and Chip Witt serving on several concours-judging teams.

  As I was taking in all the Porsches, I wandered over to the Michelin Tire area and observed the Porsches on display. My mind started to remember that my tires would soon be needing replacement and that the cost would have to be added to our budget. I went into the booth and looked at the PS2's, the current tire on Gator, when I heard my name called out over the Werks PA system. I had just won a set of Michelin tires. I swear you can't make this stuff up. So I ran to the announcer stand and Vu Nguyen confirmed my winning the tires and that I would receive a voucher in the mail in two weeks. After that I was a little stunned, so I wandered the corral.  It was my fantasy to select what could be my next Porsche. The problem is that I love my '06 Cayman S. We have had a lot of time together and I'm still having a blast driving Gator. I have done two cross-country trips of 6,500 miles each with this car. You get to know your car with that much seat time; with lots of auto crossing too. So I decided to drive to my next event, the concours and tour at Pacific Grove.

  When I arrived at the afternoon event and parked my Cayman S my son, Sean, called to congratulate me on the tires. He was at the Werks Reunion and heard my name being announced. He had come up to Monterey with his family and I didn't know it. The next day, I spent a wonderful afternoon and evening with them. The highlight of the Rotary concours is an escorted tour of the seventeen-mile drive with all 200 cars doing the out and back trip. I loved all the spectators lining the route cheering us all the way. My Werks day ended with a meal for all the participants. I even sat next to SVR Judy from the morning shift. If you enjoyed this story please join us in our events and volunteer to help. You will be the fuel that makes these events happen.

Autocross #7
 by Grady Carter

 The August autocross upped our highest participation for the year by one.    This was helped out by 5 first timers.  Two from Redwood Region, James Casciani and Barry Wasserman, Dana from the Diablo Region, and a couple of locals Andrew (Glen Ellen) and Katie (S.R.).
  A couple of other "first timers" were Colin Fat, SVR Prez, making his first Redwood appearance this year and Tristan Bayless who made it out for the first time in a year with the oh-so-familiar 912.
Tristan took no time getting back into the groove and ended up taking top time of the day (nothing unusual there) and holding up Porsche pride against Ace Robey in his Audi R8.
  On the ladies side, Stacy O'Connell put down her best run of the day on her very last run to extend her lead in Ladies Top Time of Day from 0.2 seconds to 0.5 seconds.  In the next run group Deb Suttkus waited until her next to last run to improve her time almost a full second and in doing so edged out Stacy for Ladies TTOD. 
  In our handicap adjusted competition (PAX), Bob Schoenherr and his 914 went in trailing Grady Carter and his Boxster S by 10 points and came out the other side in the lead by 6 points.  I think this is where I say "Bob designed a 914 course".  We'll have to wait for the end of the year on this one.

  Now on to some more serious stuff.  Autocross duties are filled by volunteers.  Autocross is in the need of a team volunteers.  The jobs/duties are varied.  On-the-job training will be provided.  A general list is:

Autocross Director
Participant Management
Towing (need a backup tow vehicle/person)
Course Setup (need one more person)
Tech Inspection (can always use a couple more)

Remaining Autocrosses:
October 8
October 29
Hope to see you (twice) in October and happy motoring,

Grady Carter
