Although competition events, like Autocross, Time Trial, Club Racing and Concours are a major part of the Golden Gate Region, GGR also features an array of social events, tours and fun motoring runs throughout the year. This provides an excellent opportunity for members to get together in an informal environment, share car stories and enjoy each others company.
Our premier social event is the GGR Annual Awards Banquet. The banquet is held at various locations throughout the Bay Area in mid December or early January. Popular locations include the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, Sparkys Garage in San Carlos and Club Auto Sport in San Jose. Eighty to one hundred people generally attend. The banquet provides an opportunity to present the Autocross and Time Trial awards, as well as recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the Club throughout the year.
Another popular social event is the GGR Family Picnic / People’s Choice Wash and Shine Concours. It takes place at Vasona County Park in Los Gatos. Over fifty members and twenty-five cars generally attend. The event features an awesome display of pristine Porsches and a delicious catered BBQ lunch, as well as summer games like volleyball and croquet.
Our “Friday Night Social” is held at Paul Martin’s in San Mateo on the third Friday of each month. These are small, informal gatherings where members meet to enjoy food and share each other’s company. Come join us for a drink!
The Boxster Brunch is held at historic Alice’s Restaurant at the intersection of Hwy 35 & 84 in Woodside and is open to all Porsches. Twenty plus enthusiasts meet on the first Saturday, every other month to share car stories and enjoy the food. Impromptu tours through the nearby mountain roads sometimes follow the brunch.
