Toys for Tots * Driver’s Ed * H-3 Run & Christmas Party

by Mike Cripps & Chip Hughes

  This holiday season brings three big events. All three involve driving our Porsches and good times with fellow members. So come on out and join in the fun!

1) Toys for Tots Motorcade in Waikiki: One of the most worthwhile events PCA-Hawai‘i participates in all year. We will assemble near Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park at 9 a.m. on Sunday, November 25, depart at 10 a.m. with virtually every car club on O’ahu in a motorcade down Kalakaua Avenue, and deliver our unwrapped toys to the Marine Corps Reserve at the Waikiki Shell. Canned goods are also appreciated. Brunch afterwards at the Elks Club. Santa will be on hand. Fun for keiki and the whole family.

2) Driver’s Education / Car Control Clinic at Hawai‘i Raceway Park: PCA-Hawai‘i will host a driving event at Hawai’i Raceway Park on Sunday, December 2. The event will run from 9 to 5 p.m. and consist of car control exercises in the morning and practicing the lessons learned in the afternoon on the track short course. The Hawai‘i International Racing School will be our contractor and provide the instructors. This training is expected to provide the initial instruction for the BMW Club’s “Aloha 500” to be held on February 2, 2002. It also stands alone as a good clinic on driving a high-performance automobile. The cost will be $125 for the day using your car.
For more information call Mike Cripps, 239-8506.

3) H-3 Run & Christmas Party: The Christmas party is looking good. On Sunday, December 9, we’ll meet at the makai end of Lagoon Drive at 3 p.m. and reprise the ever-popular H-3 run to Kaneohe, ending up at Pohai Nani (45-090 Namoku St) for a 4 p.m. hosted champagne reception among the cars. Dinner will be at 5 p.m. and includes tossed salad, fruit platter, prime rib au jus, catch of the day fish (shoyu/citrus), baked potato, broccoli, rice, and choice of dessert. All this costs you $25 and includes the champagne. You might want to bring a bottle of wine to share with your table. We will have the usual drawing for prizes. Please make your commitment now and mail the $25 per person payable to PCA-Hawai’i. Time is approaching and we have to commit to our numbers.
