FROM the PRESIDENT
October started with a great Social night at Outback
in Oak Ridge. Folks just kept coming in – old members,
new members, and even prospective members – and
the final count was 27. Our Autocross planned for
October 11 had to be cancelled at the last minute when
Pellissippi State notified us the site was not available
due to construction work they were doing. The Harper
Cars & Coffee on October 19 was a big event and
Smoky Mountain Region PCA was well represented.
Our Planning meeting on October 18 was well attended, with many new faces. Thanks to all who came
and the many of you that sent your input for the meeting via emails. We want to say thanks to Harper for
providing the space and refreshments for the meeting.
The discussion was good and a lot of great ideas were
shared. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting 2015
for our club. The calendar will be coming out soon.
Our Fall Fest was held November 8-9. You can read
all about it in this issue of Smoke Signals.
Elections for next year’s Executive Council are this
month. A ballot is included with this newsletter (see
page 7), so be sure to vote. Thanks to Bob Hutchins
and Sue Groves for serving as the Nominating Committee and to all who have agreed to serve. There are still
some appointed positions open for next year. If you are
interested, please contact me.
Save the date! Our Holiday Party this year will be
December 2 at Season’s Innovative Bar and Grille in
Turkey Creek. You will be receiving a mailing with all the
details.
Happy motoring and see you soon.
Rich Neubauer
President
HEARD �ROUND the REGION
• Cathy Hutchins heard recently from Janet Baird.
She and JB will be completing their move to Texas,
over Thanksgiving, so they can be closer to family to
assist in JB’s care. We wish them well!
• Bob and Jyme Heimans’ son was moved recently
from the care center at UT Hospital, to their home. His
recovery from his car accident is going to take some
time, and their care in his daily activities is required.
• What a great Fall Fest event this year!!! Thank you
to all participants, and thank you to all of the volunteers who gave up their free time to put the event on.
• Are you coming to the Holiday Party?
Vic Rola
Vice President
FROM the DRIVER'S SEAT
Another year is coming quickly to an end and I realize
I did not participate in near as many PCA events as I
would have wished.
Sunday autocrosses and Wednesday night socials
were trumped by church. Socials held on other days
were either too far away or in conflict with something
else I had to do. Drives always seemed to be scheduled
while I was out of town or my 914 was on jack stands
(its current state as I write).
I did, however, make it to the 2015 Planning Meeting and was encouraged by the outcome. Autocrosses
scheduled on Saturdays will allow me (and perhaps
others) to attend. I am especially looking forward to the
Autocross School scheduled early in 2015.
A fellow 914 owner and I have been discussing a
purpose-built autocrosser. Between the two of us, we
have a couple 914s without titles, plenty of spare parts,
and an engine or three (all of which need rebuilt).
We realize the end result will most likely put us in a
class where we will be woefully noncompetitive but we
don’t care :) Our goal with this project is to have fun!

FALL FEST: Drive & Dinner
Report by Vic Rola
This years’ final Regional event, Fall Fest, started
off on a warming Saturday afternoon at Smokies Stadium, Kodak, TN. Early arrivals got there about 1:00PM!
Tour
directors
Bob
Hutchins and Clyde Peery
got everyone signed off on
the PCA required Release
Form. From 1:00 until 2:00,
a lot of socializing took place.
Included in the 20
Porsches that showed up were five from Magnolia
PCA Region in Mississippi whose owners decided to
include our event in their tour of the Smokies.
The tour began at 2:00 sharp as Bob Hutchins led
the way through some neat east TN locales like Luttrell and Russellville. A quick run over Jacobs Mountain was enjoyed by all! A short �pit stop’ at Hardees
gave all a chance to stretch their legs before continuing on to Jefferson City, TN.
Once in Jefferson City,
37 PCA’ers enjoyed a Mexican feast at El Paraiso. The
food was great, and the camaraderie was even better.
The locals immediately
spotted the 20 Porsches in
the parking lot, and a lot of
picture taking took place!
Once dinner was over, all headed home. A few of
the die-hards knew they had to get ready for Sunday’s
autocross.
20 Cars on the Drive Out
37 Folks at the Dinner
27 Cars AutoX’d
Great weather both days… esp. Sunday!
FALL FEST: Autocross
Report by Vic Rola
Earlier in the year, Rick Berry took a video (GoPro) of the course
that was designed
quite
different
from previous autocross
course
designs utilized at
Splash Country,
Pigeon Forge. He
planned to use the
same course once
again and used
his video of the
previous course to lay out the exact same pattern.
As he and I arrived at about 7:00am with iPad in
hand, we had the course laid out (and chalked) by
8:00am… unheard of! Thank you, Rick Brooksbank,
Clyde Peery, and Ron Disney for your assistance.
After the safety meeting, the
first car was off at
10:00am. We had
a good mix of cars
as the SCCA was
invited to participate with us.
Six runs were
offered to the drivers, and when
all was said and
done, Bonnie Foulds, driving her RSR inspired 911,
took FTD Womens, while Matt Garrett, driving his high
horsepower turbo, took FTD Mens.
• The autocross event FTD overall was a super
fast Shelby Mustang
• Thank you Rick + Janis Berry of Eurotech for
sponsoring the 2014 autocross series
• Thank you Debbie Cooper for our trophy design
