ALABAMA REGION - PORSCHE CLUB of AMERICA
Upcoming Club Events
July 20, 2017 3rd Thursday Social with the Birmingham Baron's
A special thanks to member, Jeff Logan for making such a great opportunity and venue available to us. You are required to RSVP for this event to ensure you have a ticket and can join us at our suite. The most convenient and secure parking is the lot at 1st Av North and 14th street (I believe it's the Barber's lot). It is operated by intelligent parking systems and has golf carts to bring the guests to the ballpark. If you RSVP by June 30th, the Club will also pay for your parking.
Now, on with the timing....
Beginning at 4pm, the street is blocked off for PCA AL Region club members. We will be able to take photos with our Porsches in front of the Birmingham sign. The Concourse suite will then open at 6 pm. The Baron's will be playing the Jackson Generals and the game starts at 7:05. Food and beverages will be provided by the club.
Again folks, RSVP is required; we would hate to turn away members due to space limitations and really don't have a way to get tickets to walk-ups. Your RSVP tickets we be at group will-call. If you reply by June 30th, a parking pass will be emailed to you in advance of the event.
For additional event details and to RSVP, please email your club president - Darcy Schofill.
