PCA Escape registration opens August 1
Escape is one of the "big" Porsche Club events of the year. It's often the case that the Parade is on one coast or the other, and not everyone has the time or budget for a trip like that, perhaps all the way across the country. Escape provides you with another option.
Escape, like the Parade, moves around each year and is typically held on the opposite side of the country from the Parade. It is a multi-event weekend, with a national attendance list. While the Parade has a competitive focus, Escape is purely non-competitive. It is a socially oriented weekend focusing on camaraderie and friendship.
On Nov. 8-11, Eureka Springs, Ark., will host the 2012 Escape weekend billed as "Escape to the Ozarks", and we are hard at work finalizing plans for a weekend we're sure you'll enjoy. The event will consist of banquets, driving tours, drives to local area attractions and a "People's Choice" car show. There will be free time during the event to allow you to explore area restaurants and culture on your own. More
