Touring the Green Mountain State Since 1986!

We’re all feeling the effects of the Covid-19 fallout and it's a real downer that the Green Mountain Region Board had to cancel our May 2 tour and spring meeting and to postpone the June 13th tour to August. Despite the cancellation and postponement, the Board did discuss the possibility of a “scaled down” tour on June 20 if government restrictions are sufficiently lifted and a volunteer can be identified to lead the tour. If you are interested in leading such an event please reach out to Duffy Miller, Events Chair, at  or by replying to this newsletter.

Please see below for the latest tour lineup for the rest of 2020. We will get on the road!

Of particular note to the membership, our club president, Carl Wulfestieg, is temporarily relinquishing his responsibilities to  Vice President Dave Whittall for the next couple of months. Carl is scheduled to undergo major cardiac surgery at Tufts Hospital in Boston tomorrow, June 1. He expects to get behind the wheel of his Porsche 911E after approximately 2 months of recuperation. If you would like to call or text Carl, he can be reached on his mobile at  253-279-2345. We all wish Carl the best and look forward to seeing him back on the road in his purple1971 911E this fall.

Message from Acting President Dave Whittall

As Sandy notes, our hard working president Carl Wulfestieg is in the shop for some repair work, and on behalf of all the members of the Green Mountain Region, I want to wish him all the best with his surgery and for a speedy recovery!
As we await Carl's return, the weather has improved and is perfect for a tour with our Porsche brothers and sisters. But, here we are in the middle of a pandemic and a “stay at home” order from the governor. Okay, I have pulled the Boxster S out of hibernation and have gone for a couple of short loops around the “neighborhood”. Grafton is so small that two times equals a loop. I am looking forward to seeing the other members of the GMR and having a proper tour with beautiful cars and nice people. Be sure to read these newsletters and regularly check the website for updates to the 2020 tour schedule.
All the best.

Remember it's not just the cars -- it's the people
