President’s Message – Announcing the Executive for 2013-2014

President’s Message – Announcing the Executive for 2013-2014


Since joining PCA-CWR in 2006 it certainly has been an exciting and fun ride!

To be honest I cannot believe two years have gone by since I took over as President from Jim Grant. I had the stated intention of continuing with the excellent work he had done in the previous term. My goals as President were to diversify our club events intending to reach out to a wider group of the membership. Besides offering some great driving tours, Autocross and D.E. events, we also included many more social functions and improved communications through monthly event e-mails, social media and our website. I’m happy to say that many of the Porsche Club events had a vast appeal and attendance has dramatically increased. Through countless hours of hard work and effort by the executive, I’m also proud in that we have developed very strong relationships with our sponsors, without their continued support we could not host the special events we enjoy.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the executive members who truly outdid themselves and helped accomplish the tasks presented over the last two years, without a strong executive the club could not flourish. I’d also like to thank all the volunteers that stepped up and contributed their time and effort in making the Porsche Club of America – Canada West Region very special indeed. I’m proud to belong to a club with such a great group of people!

I’m honored to have had the opportunity to serve as your President and guide the club through the past two years. It is healthy for the club to change leadership every so often and to re-energize the club’s board and breathe some fresh air into the club’s activities, so it is time for me to step down and welcome the new President and executive board.

I’m please to officially introduce the following members who have accepted positions on the executive board for 2013-2014;


Erwin Kremser – President

John Macfarlane – Vice President / Treasurer

Asgar Virji – Director at Large

Joel Parker – Director at Large

Ray Gumbel – Past President



We are a Club because of our choice of cars and we are a community because of the great people.

Thanks again and I wish you all safe and Happy Holidays!


Ray Gumbel

PCA-CWR President
