Fall driving tour announced; sign up starts Aug 5. at 8 p.m.

If you regularly peruse the calendar on the Milwaukee region’s website, you probably have made plans to attend several region events this summer. It’s not too soon to be looking ahead to Fall.

Milwaukee region’s Fall Tour is slated for Saturday, Oct. 12. Back by popular demand, Jim and Kay Schustedt will lead this driving tour. The route, covering nearly 150 miles, will begin near the Kettle Moraine State Forest’s Northern Unit and end at our lunch destination (selected by fellow Fall Tour planner Dirk Stallmann) in Mequon. The foliage in mid-October should be at peak color. The sights and sounds of 20 Porsches winding though this beautiful area is certain to be a highlight of your year. If you’ve participated in our previous Fall Tours, you know we love to string together the twistiest and hilliest roads. If running up and down through the gears within a group of driving enthusiasts is your idea of fun, you and your Porsche are in for a real treat!

Mark your calendars now. Registration for the Fall Tour is open to PCA Milwaukee Region members on Monday, Aug. 5, 2024, at 8 p.m. Once the 20-car limit is reached, a waitlist will be started. In the event of a cancellation, the first person on the waitlist will be given the opportunity to fill the vacancy. To register, please send an email with ALL the following information to tour leaders Jim and Kay Schustedt.

1) Your name (first and last).

2) The number of a cell phone that you’ll have with you on the day of the tour.

3) The names (first and last) of any guest(s) who will be with you on the tour.

4) The names (first and last) of any minor (< age 18) guests who will be with you on the drive. Bring a completed minor waiver signed by both parents).

 5) Whether you and any guest(s) plan to have lunch (please provide the total count for your car). If you say “yes,” please honor your commitment! If there are several no-shows, we may lose the opportunity for future events at this lunch venue.

Please send an email with ALL the requested information (Items 1 -5) above, to: jkschustedt@gmail.com.  The deadline for signing up for the Fall Tour is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, 2024. However, do not wait until the deadline to sign up, you’ll likely be disappointed. This tour will drive many of the best Porsche-driving roads in SE Wisconsin and is almost guaranteed to fill up fast.  

Participants will receive email confirmation, tour details (such as meeting place and time), and periodic updates. Adult participants will be required to sign a paper waiver at the start of the mandatory Drivers’/Navigators’ meeting. Again, please be sure to bring a completed minor waiver signed by both parents if you’ll have any minor participants with you on the drive. We look forward to seeing you in October!
