March 7thPorsche & Pistols Club Drive to the CMP Range in Talladega @ 4387 Turner Mill Rod, Talladega, AL.  This is a brand new and exceptionally cool event for our Club.  We will depart from Porsche Birmingham at 8:30 a.m.  Registration will be at ClubRegistration.net or click here.  Please join us for a very fun, educational and informative day at one of the finest ranges in the US.  Safety and education are their hallmarks.  Bring your family!  For more about CMP, click here.  Our event will include unrestricted access, managed by the CMP range officers, to ranges 1,2, and 4.  Click here for a range map.  **Restrictions are small, no .50 BMG and let’s not complicate the day with black powder on our first event.  Outside of that, any legal handgun or long gun (air rifles, too) is able to be enjoyed.  The $25 per person event fee covers all usage fees on these ranges.  The facility does have a Pro-Shop on site with firearms, accessories, and ammunition.  You are not required to purchase and use ammunition from the facility, bring your own as you choose.  Restrictions here are simple, if you can purchase the ammunition from a local big box store you can shoot it, nothing unique such as tracers, incendiary, armor piercing and the like.  Should you desire and for an extra charge, CMP has a 15 station, one mile loop, sporting clays area.  We will have a private meeting room for the classroom portion and to store your gear.  There are plenty of lunch options close by, or you can bring a picnic.  A BIG thanks to the man, the myth, the legend – our very own Rodney McFarland (of Porsche Birmingham fame) for putting this together.

May 30th –Detailing Summit @ Insane Paint Auto Detailing @ 9 am – 12 pm. The gathering at Insane Paint Auto Detailing (IPAD) will be hosted by owner Chase Tubbs & a few of his crew. This 3 hour session will be designed to encompass two simple topics:  1) How to safely “wipe down” and/or wash your vehicle. SWIRLS ARE NOT CUTE. We find almost every client is “their own worst enemy” when it comes to procedure and tools when cleaning their car. We will uncover many little things that will revolutionize your results, by simply showcasing proper steps & media and help you stay swirl free.   2) Post-track day detox. Showing both “on the spot touch ups” when you’re at the track, between laps or courses, as well as an event-ending Detail when you get back home.  For more info about IPAD, click here.
