This year we are pulling out all the stops!

We are hiring an event coordinator to feature 1 hour of Bumper Bubble Ball. This is where people form teams of 5 on each side and play games dressed in a plastic bubble.

It is hilarious to watch as well as participate. All we are asking is a purchase of 1 bottle of wine or beer per person participating on the bubble ball event to help defray the cost of the renting of the coordinator and bubbles.

The bubble event will only be available from 1:30- 2:30. Skittles will commence after 3:00 potluck.

“I believe this will be the premier event for our club this year, and should not be missed,” Steve said.

Porsche On the Mac
Aug 17 – Aug 19 all-day

Hello Porsche Club of America members,

Motor-Stadt Region would like to invite everyone that owns a Porsche to the very first “Beauty & The Bridge – Porsche On The Mac event.”  This event will take place the weekend of August 17-19, 2018.   The major feature of this gala event will be a police escorted caravan from St. Ignace on the north end of the 5-mile bridge across the Straits of Mackinac between Lake Huron and Lake Michigan to Mackinaw City and perhaps back.  Members from all PCA regions are invited.

The communities on each end of the bridge have become a hub of summertime car shows, bridge drives, and related gearhead activities.  Many car clubs and motorized vehicle groups have successfully staged bridge-drive events based in either of the two towns- Jeeps, Mustangs, Corvettes, Mini Coopers, ATV /ORVs, tractors, trucks, even hearses! Just as a point of reference, the 2017 Corvette event registered 239 cars, with 191 cars crossing the bridge.  Last summer’s Mini-Cooper gathering attracted over 1,300 cars!  Porsches certainly could and should be able to be equivalently represented.

In addition to the bridge drive, the weekend will feature a car show on Saturday afternoon followed by evening entertainment and cocktail party on the St. Ignace marina dock, culminating with fireworks over the harbor.  By extending your visit to Sunday (highly recommended) you can choose a driving tour through Michigan’s scenic eastern Upper Peninsula or northern Lower Peninsula or maybe a gimmick rally or scavenger hunt (planning is still going on).  The day can be topped off with movies by the bay at American Legion Park.

St. Ignace is one of the most beautiful communities on the Great Lakes, with many choices for lodging and dinning.  Other local attractions include the Kewadin Casino, Mackinac Island, Historic Mill Creek, and Fort Michilimackinac.The country and water in the vicinity of the bridge is spectacular and offers many attractions.

Hope to see everyone on the bridge

Past President – Motor-Stadt Region

Crossing The Mighty Mac.

The Mackinac Bridge spans the Straits of Mackinac, connecting the Upper and Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Opened in 1957, the 4.99 mile suspension bridge is the gateway to the North for over 4 million vehicles a year. Views of the Straits from the bridge are spectacular.
