September Cascade Region PCA Dinner

Yoo-hoo everyone, it’s dinner time again!

I have it on good authority that this month’s location is going to be the Taprock Northwest Grill in Grants Pass. https://www.taprock.com

If I were you, I would there around 5:30 (happy hour) on September 22, for cocktails, appetizers and chatter and then for dinner from 6:00 to 8:00.

Thanks to Jim Warriner we are alone (yes, unfortunately, segregation is still around) in the Evergreen Room!
The location is: 971 SE 6th St, Grants Pass (6th Street at the river).

As usual, please RSVP to jearly@wsenvironmental.com , this is critical in that we have menu requirements based on attendance. So please click and let me know.

Oregon History, Rivers, etc. Drive (Southern) @ Murphy Chapel
Oct 7 @ 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Oregon History, Rivers, Plenty of Twists and Turns and a Cheesy Ending

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

Join Dave and Ann McGloon and all your Porsche friends on the last drive of the season along some of Southern Oregon’s scenic back roads with beautiful river views, interesting history and a bit of fun along the way. Our first featured stop will be the Applegate Trail Interpretive Center in Sunny Valley (admission $5 and well worth it). Make sure to bring your cameras for a special photo opportunity of all of our gorgeous cars high above the Rogue River and Rainie Falls. Our drive will end at The Rogue Creamery Dairy Farm Stand in Grants Pass where a special tour has been arranged; have you ever seen cows that are trained to milk and groom themselves?

After the tour we will enjoy a picnic style lunch on the grounds. When you RSVP, please let us know your lunch selection. Red wine will be available, but if you prefer another beverage please bring it with you.

Similar to last year, there will be a quiz and a prize at the end for the winner! Also, Ann has two new cookie cutters she can’t wait to try so goodie bags are in the works.

All roads are paved and maintained and FUN.

An accurate head count would be extremely helpful as we coordinate both stops. Please RSVP with number of people and lunch selection to dpmcgloon@oigp.net.

Lunch Selections

  • Rogue Creamery Classic Sandwich (made with some rogue creamery blue & drizzled honey) $6
  • Sebbie’s Special Ale Cheddar Sandwich $5
  • Cheese Platter $10
  • Bento Box $10
  • or

The drive will start at the Murphy Chapel, in Murphy, located at the intersection of Hwy 238/Williams Hwy and New Hope Road. Location is between mile markers 6 and 7. (Murphy’s only gas station a Union 76 is right next door). We will be departing at 0930 sharp so arrive in plenty of time – the first game starts right at the start!

Fall Colors Drive @ Shopko Parking Lot
Oct 28 @ 9:30 AM – 3:00 PM

It has been brought to my attention that there is conflicting information on whether the Aufderheide Scenic Route is open or not. I will attempt to get that clarified soon. If the route is still (or again) closed, we will fall back to a different route, TBA.

OK, we are going to give 2017 one more driving opportunity in the Central Chapter.

Saturday, Oct. 28th, let’s observe the changing colors of fall by driving the Aufderheide Scenic route, ending in Oakridge for lunch at the Brewer’s Union.

We need to bear in mind that the road may not be in as nice condition as we are used to, since there was a lot of fire equipment on it in August. So this may be a more leisurely tour than some as we watch for rough road surfaces. But that’s OK, as we also will want to observe the changing fall colors—something that is all too easy to miss. We will end the drive with lunch at the Brewer’s Union in Oakridge. (Menu)

Long range forecasts are currently cool, but sunny and dry, so this is probably our best shot at a late fall drive.

Let’s meet in the Shopko parking lot on Coburg Rd and Chad Dr at 9:30 for a 10:00 departure. This should be a nice finish to 2017!
