a grabber (as opposed to the rear gas springs where any dropped
parts are just plain gone) because they will fall into the enclosed
body area. These springs are removed and replaced exactly like the
rears, but on 993’s and newer cars the lower end of each gas spring
rides on a ball joint. It is held onto the ball joint by a retaining clip
that is released by sliding a small screwdriver under it. I strongly
suggest you practice this 3 or 4 times with your new spring before
you try and take out the old ones. Just hold the screwdriver parallel
to the gas spring piston rod and slide the blade under the clip (and
if needed, twist a little). Don’t go too far or the clip will spring off
and then you will need to use the grabber to retrieve it, and you’ll
need a special flashlight to find it (ask me how I know this).

         Event: 3rd Annual Car Cruise - When: Saturday, August 6th - 2:00PM Location: Sacramento

      California Automobile Museum
           3rd Annual Car Cruise
           Saturday, August 6th

   Join us as we cruise through the streets of Sacramento with a police led escort on the 3rd Annual California
Automobile Museum Car Cruise. The Car Cruise begins at 2:00pm at Sacramento State Parking lot 1 where we
 will gather with our friends, listen to some music and have an opportunity to look at hundreds of unique and
exciting cars. The cruise starts at 4:00 and we will begin winding through the streets of Sacramento ending right
      in the heart of the Fulton Avenue Business District where the streets will be blocked off for us to park.

  Once at the Fulton Avenue location there will be many things to do. Three bands will be playing; a beer garden
     and food court will be set up; new car dealers will be showcasing the latest models; over 30 Fulton Avenue
 restaurants and shops will be open and hundreds of cars will be lining the streets. Awards will be given out in 15
different car categories including an award for the car club with the most cars which the Porsche Club won during
 the 1st Car Cruise. Early registration with a discount ends July 15th and all registrants will get a goodie bag and
                                                     free t-shirt.

The Porsche group will be meeting at 2:00pm at the Sac State parking lot and forming so that we can all cruise as
                     a group and park together at the ending location on Fulton Avenue.

 You can get more information and register at on the Museum’s Website at www.calautomuseum.org or contact

The Sacramento Valley Region of the Porsche Club of America has 575 regular members, 469 affiliate & Family members and 6 dual members
for a total of 1,044.
If you have been reading the board minutes you noticed that SVR has gone back to a one year new members recognition. Our new members
group chairs Dan Rowland and Lee Deter have scheduled 4 new members gatherings this year. 2 will be focused on our monthly breakfast
meetings and one will be a social and the other will be a tour open to all members with focus on new members.
Since we use email for most of our communications it is necessary for all of us to keep our email current with SVR and PCA. So please go to
pca.org and login to your membership record and make any updates as needed. Also even though we get the information from PCA monthly
you can send the same information to membership@svr.pca.org and I will update our data base so you will continue to stay connected. By
now each of you should have received the new SVR membership directory in the mail. Please contact me if you did not receive your copy.

THE GOODIE STORE
by Cookie Anderson, SVR Goodiestorekeeper
We are going to have a cold winter. How do I know that? I read some years back in the Farmers Almanac that if acorns fall off the tree
during early summer that we will have a cold winter. Guess what? My acorns have been falling off my oak tree since late June. So far that
Farmers Almanac hasn’t been wrong.

This is your chance on stocking up on warm clothes from the Goodie Store. Do you have a warm sweatshirt with the Porsche Crest yet? We
have several sizes and colors on sale for $25.00 originally priced at $35.00. We have red vests with the small Porsche Crest sizes in medium,
large and extra large for $35.00.

We have several hats in black and white for $15.00.
                                                                                                                    PCA Metal Frames

                                             Upcoming Event! Quick Info
             Event: Deaver Vineyard Tour - When: Saturday - August 27 - 5:00PM Location: Plymouth

                     Deaver Vineyard - Tour, Wine Tasting and Dinner
               Saturday, August 27, 2011
   Hot August nights, Supper on the ground, Hootenanny, Hoedown,
                          call it what you like
  but here what’s planned for a fun filled day and a scrumptious dinner.

 •	   The Tour: Tour with the Porsche group, or, drive on your own,
      to Deaver Vineyards at 12455 Steiner Road, in the Shenandoah
      area of Plymouth, Amador County, Ca. Kirk and Linda Bradford
      will be leading the tour again this year. (They won the award
      last year for best tour.) Details for the tour will be in future
      announcements. If you drive on your own, be at Deaver’s at 5:00
      PM for the wine tasting. There’s plenty of parking at Deaver’s.

 •	   The Wine Tasting: A private tasting for the Porsche Club at 5:00
      PM. Pair your wine with a dinner of prime rib and select some to take home.

 •	   The Dinner.: The dinner is a cook out, and will be served around 7:00 PM. and we will eat outdoors. Dinner will
      be cooked in huge cast iron dutch ovens over charcoal. This is Cowboy cooking. If you have an interest in this type
      of cooking, come early and see how it’s done. The cook will demonstrate. Dinner will consist of a large cut of USDA
      Choice Prime Rib of Beef, salad, cowboy potatoes, Sloughhouse corn, home made sour dough biscuits, with cobbler,
      fried pies and ice cream for desert. A vegetarian dish, cooked in a dutch oven, will also be offered.

 •	   The Cook: Leonard Sanders has developed quite a reputation for cowboy and Dutch oven cooking. He has cooked for
      some very large groups including CRAB this year and for this same occasion last year. He cooks one of the best prime
      rib dinners you’ll ever taste.

 •	   The Music: This type of dinner naturally calls for Bluegrass music and arrangements have been made for The Notorious
      Shank Brothers Bluegrass band to play from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. Think Foggy Mountain Breakdown and Dueling Banjo’s.
      (Same group as last year.)

 •	   The Vineyards and Winery: Deaver Vineyards and Winery is one of the oldest in Amador County and is certainly the
      most picturesque. It’s the perfect place for a cook out and Bluegrass Music. Their wines are good too. Ken Deaver and
      Joey Deaver-Bigwood have been great to work with. I appreciate them letting us use their facility and I’m sure you are
      going to enjoy being there.

                          We need a good turn out to make this event work. Polish up your Porsche,
                           enjoy a ride through the Sierra Nevada foot hills. Pass through towns like
                          Mt.Aukum, Omo Ranch, Somerset, Grizzly Flat, Slug Gulch, Fiddle Town,
                                              Fair Play, Drytown and Pokerville.

         Enjoy dinner outdoors at dusk, a bottle of wine, listening to Bluegrass, with the best people and cars on earth.
                   We also have a couple of surprises for this year’s event which will add to your enjoyment.

                     Dinner with live music will be $30.00 per person. Please respond early, by August 14.
                       For more information contact Ron Riley at 916.366.8834 or rresq@surewest.net

                                   Circle Saturday, August 27, 2011 on your calendar.

       This is the initial announcement for the annual Mendocino Tour. This is a 3-day, 2-night tour to the
       Mendocino area. And then take an extra hour of sleep on Sunday morning because it is also the end of

         This is a very informal tour. We will have some kite flying (weather permitting), miniature golf, and
        several socials. We have several hotels/inns that we work with to house our group. You are welcome to
         stay at any place of your choosing..........some folks have even gotten together and rented a vacation
                house for a few days. Even have had some couples stay at the Point Cabrillo lighthouse.

        Schedule: leave Niello Porsche on Friday morning; lunch stop in the wine country; social on Friday
      evening. Saturday is open (kite flying, miniature golf, shopping, Botanical Gardens, etc.). Sunday is also
                             open with folks generally returning home in some groups.

      Don’t miss out on this popular tour -------- we even have members from other regions join us for a good
                            time. And Redwood Region will join us again on Saturday.

                                      And remember, don’t turn your back to the ocean.

PCA-SVR Zone 7 Autocross at Infineon
By Collin Fat

The Sacramento Region hosted a Zone 7 event on May 28th at Infineon Raceway and the weather cooperated until about 3:00PM when
thunder showers forced us to cancel the afternoon session. Regardless of the weather, everyone enjoyed themselves and stayed relatively
dry. We had a total of 53 drivers with 29 drivers running for zone points and 24 running for fun.

Bob Peake, our competition director, designed a very challenging course which tested the driver’s true abilities to read the course and
decide what the best line to achieve the ultimate time was. We had two high speed slaloms and several diabolical radius corners with 180
degree sweepers that were very technical and challenged even the most experienced autocrosser. Shall I take it tight or take it wide? Shall I
give up speed or drift the back end out with a little more throttle?

Top time of day went to SCCA and Sacramento resident Al Patterson in his 600 HP Dodge Viper, followed by GGR’s Monty Pack who
drove his 2005 Porsche GT3. Only .762 seconds separated the top two finishers. Rounding out the top six finishers were Mike Koozman
from GGR in his 1973 914, Jim Winston in a Super 7, Randy Wonnenberg in his 2007 Chevrolet Corvette and in 6th place PCA and
GGR legend Terry Zaccone in his 1968 911 named Marcel.

Representing the Sacramento region were Lisa Thomas, Scott Lines, Matt Deter, Bob Peake, Curtis and Janet Conner, Darrel Huckaby,
Doug Chalmers, Ross Butler, Richard Rosenberg, and Collin and Weyland Fat.

              Carrera Wing with third taillight for Porsche 996. A great deal at only $750. and its local so you don’t have to pay taxes and
              shipping. Normally retails for over $1,300. It can be easily fitted and repainted. I have a C4S wide body so I switched this
              Carrera wing for the Techart GT2 wing.
