The next upcoming PCA Zone 8 Concours will be at the Westlake Village CA Hyatt Hotel on Sat. 1-19-19 - for those interested - in conjunction with the Annual Zone 8 Awards Banquet that evening.

While the awards will be for the various 2018 Season's Concours, AX, DE/Track, etc. winners - this is the kick-off Concours for the 2019 season - so it's your 1st chance to score points towards your next Annual 2019 Zone 8-wide trophies.

Remember that you'll need to enter 51% of the SoCal events, or 33% & one of the AZ or NV Z8 Concours, plus earn 300 volunteer points (e.g.: help as judge, runner, timer, corners, scoring, event chairs/vice-chairs, etc. at any Zone 8 events throughout 2019 for various points for each "job").

Also feel free to take & post your pix from the event in this topic for all to see some nice cars on show in January! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/type.gif)

It may just help warm up our northern & eastern members with snow on the ground & their 914s on wheel dollies in their garages! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

BTW & FYI speaking of weather - Dick Douglass is working on a back-up plan for an indoor space, in case it's raining &/or too mucky to be outside, since it's looking like a wet rainy season for us here in SoCal this year (& we need rain). So keep your eyes & ears out for that come next Saturday. However, it would probably only be for the entered judged cars.

Since it's a relatively small show, they may not have an official Display only area, but that has never stopped our 914ers from showing up & parking in a group(s), then go visit around the show.

Remember guys & gals that these events are open to all 914s - regardless if your re-engined them with a V8, Subie, EV, etc. or otherwise modified them - for Display, 914 Corral, Concours Judging, AX, Track & DE Events, Rallies, etc. It's the fact that they're a Porsche Chassis that makes them eligible.

And if you're interested in entering for the judged Concours part of the event (or any others in PCA Z8, etc.) - in Zone 8 we now have a separate judged Class for 914s only in all Divisions from Wash & Shine Div. (W&S - ext & int only judged), Street & Preservation (75% original paint & interior) & Special Categories (see below) Divs. (ext, int, engine & storage judged), & Full Concours (the other 4 areas + 2 undercarriage with & without engine [front & rear undersides]).

So 914ers have a chance for awards in every Division, including the easiest to prep for W&S! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

And if you have a Subie, V8, EV or other engine swap - then you have the option to enter in one of Special Categories, as well as if yours is a dedicated track &/or AX car in another Special Cats. sub-div. - so you don't have to go up against the garage queens & high end full restos. These often don't have a lot of cars, so sometimes easier to take home awards - but the 3 SC Sub-Divs do mix all types of "Specials" regardless of model.

And if you happen to own one of the 916s, then you can enter the 3rd Special Cats. for limited edition models .... George!

So don't be afraid to enter your 914s, since you could win both the 914 Class in any Division above (except Specials), plus the Division if good enough, & perhaps best of show overall (assuming that they still do that award this year). So possible multiple mantle or showcase stuffers! :first:

And remember that this has NOTHING to do with Originality for the judging - but is only a contest for the best cleaning, detailing, presentation, etc. of the cars. You only have to have maintained 75% original paint/exterior & 75% original interior & be over 20 years old (25?) in order to be qualified to enter Preservation Division, but originality is not judged per se.

Cheers! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)
