October 15, 2000 at the Aloha Tower Marketplace
October is traditionally concours month at PCA-Hawai‘i.
The third weekend will mark our opportunity to once again
prepare, clean, and display our cars. The annual concours
is back and a great turnout is expected.
The Aloha Tower Marketplace will be the site and
Sunday, October 15th will be the date. So get busy
and bring that pride and joy back to its original beauty.
Let all of Hawai‘i see our Porsche owners’ pride. We will
start parking the cars about 8:30 AM, with everyone in place
by 9:30. Final prep will continue until the judging begins
at 10:00. Following the judging will be an awards presentation.
An optional lunch (last year at Brew Moon, Ward Centre)
will cap off the event.
In Hawai‘i a Concours d’ Elegance is a participation event.
Everybody comes out and has a good time. Not that we aren’t
serious about Porsches -- just that our concours is relaxed
and low-key, with the emphasis on getting together for a
good time around our P Cars. For that reason, there is a
Wash ‘n Wax Award for the daily driver to just do
minimal prep and come on down. This category is for judging
on exterior only, with interior, trunk, and hood remaining
shut and uninspected.
Couldn’t be simpler. As in the past, there is also a People's
Choice Award for the car that knocks everybody’s socks
off. Each member gets one vote. Judging for the other categories
will be like previous years with a separate judge for exterior,
interior, engine compartment, and storage compartment. Class
divisions will depend on number of entrants per category.
Here’s the pitch: this is an event that takes a little planning
, so please make your commitment now
so that we can order awards and do what we have to do. Just
showing up on Sunday is easy on you, but hard on the volunteers.
Fill out and mail in the entry form today. The fee is $25
and includes a PCA-Hawai‘i T-shirt. Entries must
be postmarked by Friday, October 6. Late entry/day
of event: $35.
