Zone Rep Report April 2013

Liz ShawIn the Zone by Liz Shaw

It’s hard to believe that we’re already into April! But you know what that means – autocrossing has begun and DE’s will be in full swing by the end of the month! And in the case of several of the Zone 9 Regions, socials and tech sessions occurred in February and March, with continued activity throughout the rest of the year.

Alpine Mountain Region had a Pikes Peak Tour on February 9th and from the looks of some of the pictures, it was quite the winter scene! You can read all about the tour in the March AMR and RMR newsletters.

West Texas Region held a Poker Rally on February 23rd and they invited the Audi club to join them. Unfortunately, I didn’t request details and pictures in time for this report but I promise to have all of that next month.

Roadrunner Region had their Frostbite #2 autocross on February 16th and then they conducted an autocross school on March 9th. This was a great way to get new students started with the Die Serie autocross series, which began the next day. The students received some classroom instruction from Pat Ferrell and then they headed out to the parking lot at Route 66 Casino for some practice with a skid pad, slalom, and a box. On Sunday, nearly every student showed up for the autocross and from the results of many of them – you’d never know they were rookies!

Llano Estacado Region still had their monthly breakfast at Furr’s on the first Saturday in March. I think by that time, they had dug themselves out of the hundreds of inches of snow. Ok, maybe it wasn’t that much snow, but it was sure a lot for Amarillo (even Durango was envious!). I-40 in Albuquerque had turned into a parking lot because it was closed from the Duke City all the way into Texas.

I’m looking forward to attending DE’s organized by both AMR and RMR in April, so for the May Zone Report, I’ll have info and pictures from those events. Before those DE’s, both Regions will have training and a Driver/Instructor clinic.

Intermountain Region will also have a DE (at Miller Motorsport) in April and this will be preceded by a social in March.

If you haven’t seen it already, Carrera Region has a beautiful, creative, new website! I was a webmaster in a previous life so I know how much work it takes and these days, a club website is vital. So kudos to Carrera Region!

Parade Registration has begun and it’s going to be another super-fun one in Traverse City, Michigan. Plus, there is lots of other PCA activity going on in and around Zone 9 so fill up your P-car and take off!
