May 18-19, 2013
Well it's not too early to think about Spring! Reach under your car covers, loosen those trickle chargers (if you have one), and shake off the remnants of that winter malaise.
The Annual Zone 1 Concours & Rally will be held on the NH/ME seacoast the weekend of May 18 & 19, 2013. Weekend activities will include a Saturday Touring Class & People's Choice Concours at the Redhook Brewery, 1 Redhook Way, Portsmouth, NH 03801 and a Sunday Rally to York, ME.
Saturday, May 18th is the Concours, bring your favorite car to the Redhook Brewery (http://redhook.com). Registration begins at 10AM. Look for the signs. You can also find Concours details and information on the Zone 1 website (http://zone1.pca.org). The $10.00 People's Choice entry fee will be donated to MAKE A WISH.
The Saturday evening dinner will be held at the Cochecho Country Club, Dover, NH.-Dinner selections and final price TBA, but the advance registration is required for a head count. We'll let you know selection and price as soon as we finalize them. Let's see how many Porsches will be on this convoy to Dover.
Sunday's Rally begins at 9AM with registration at the Redhook Brewery, followed by the drivers meeting, at 9:15AM. First car off at 9:30AM, and then you're off against the tricks and treats of the NCR Rallymasters! What will they be up to? The Rally route should take about 2-2 1/2 hours along the picturesque New England coast and end at the beautiful Stage Neck Inn in York, ME (http://www.stageneck.com), where a Sunday buffet (to be paid by each attendee) will be waiting for us. There will be a brief awards program.

WE NEED YOUR HELP
There is no better way to help support Zone 1, then by volunteering for this year's Clash At The Glen Club Race. held at one of the best and most historic racetracks in the country, the Clash At The Glen brings together club members for 3 days of fun and exciting racing, which you can be a part of. Volunteers are what enable us to put on one of the best club races in PCA. We encourage you, your family and friends, to register as volunteers for this year's Zone 1 Clash at the Glen Club Race.
Below are the areas and descriptions of where we need you to volunteer!
REGISTRATION: This takes place at the Registration building, on the northwest corner of the Glen, outside of the track. Everyone must stop here and get a wrist band to get onto the track. Registration involves ensuring everyone signs a waiver. This is a very busy place Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
GARAGE ADMIN: This is the Administration of the race Driver registration, hot pit passes, pullovers, copies, radios, race results from tower are faxed here for copying and distribution. Volunteer assignments and paperwork are also handled here and every volunteer must sign in every day!
TECH INSPECTION; The job here involves working with the National PCA Technical Scrutineers. Cars are weighed, checked over for modifications, or problems. This is done in the first bays of the garage.
TIMING & SCORING: Although the race is timed and scored with computers and in-car radio transponders, a paper trail is also needed. Volunteers here write down the car numbers as they pass the start/finish line. This is done from the top of the tower where you can see most of the track and you are inside.
GRID: All the cars are "parked" along the grid prior to the start, The person at the start of the grid tells the drivers their grid number. People along the way direct drivers into their grid position. This job starts BEFORE the race; you need to be at the grid at least 15 MINUTES before the start of racing! This position is LOUD and you also need to be alert for moving cars.
ENDURO PITS MONITOR: The job here involves working for the National PCA Scrutineers to insure safety in the pits during the enduro. The National Scrutineers will hold a meeting and review what they want this group to do. This group only works on Sunday.
We ask that volunteers signup to work for a full morning or afternoon session. The more sessions you sign up for the better the rewards.
