  2. Red River Region won 7 awards at PCA Parade in Ozark Lake, MO!!! Not bad for a Region with only 170 primary members. We also had the largest Canadian turnout than any other Region.

  3. Red River Region has 2 new members, Keith Desautels, 97 Boxter and Sebastian Selver, 2002 Carrera (btw, Sebastian is only 17 yrs old, our youngest member!). Welcome!

Now for the bad news:

  1. Bruce and Marcia Tait had to leave Parade early as there was a medical issue.
  2. Two of our upcoming events had/have to be cancelled because of poor registrations, specifically the BBQ at Peter Holle’s cabin in the Whiteshell and Andreas Kottschoth’s planned North West Ontario drive. Not sure why this is, we are trying our best as a club to organize event’s/drives that would appeal to all our members. If this is not the case please let us know what types of event’s drives you wish to see.
  3. The Bemidji drive this year has also been cancelled as Rich Siegert is unable to organize it this year.
