2017 All Porsche Show

It’s almost June and that means that it’s time to mark your calendars for one of Nord Stern’s signature summer social events.  The 2017 All Porsche Show will be held on Sunday, June 25th in Central Park in Roseville (Dale Street entrance).  As part of the City’s Rosefest celebration, join over 200 other Porsche owners for some socializing, kicking the tires and just having a great time.  Owners are invited to bring and display all Porsche models including cars, SUVs and even tractors!  This year’s show features Porsche race cars from autocross to club racing to vintage racing.  In addition to the focus on racing, we will also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the introduction of the Porsche Boxster.  We’re looking to have examples on display of every year of the Boxster so drop that top and come on over!

The 2017 show will also feature a swap meet, for sale car area (Porsches only) and various vendors.  The show runs from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with display parking opening at 9:00 a.m.  The swap meet runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with setup starting at 8:00 a.m.  Food will be available from Nordic Treats. All funds raised from the show will benefit the Courage Kenny Sports and Recreation Fund.

We’re excited to announce that event registration this year will be available via clubregistration.net.  You’ll be able to register for the event, pay the requested donation, download and print your dashboard sign and receive a donation receipt.  Registering online will simplify the check-in process and alleviate the bottleneck at the park entrance.  Please visit https://clubregistration.net/events/signUp.cfm/event/8381 for more details or use the QR code below.

If you have questions or want to volunteer to help at the event, please contact either Mark Koegler – 612.581.8218 – mkoegler@hkgi.com or Phil Saari – 651.260.5665 – ps356er@yahoo.com
