Annual Dinner Reminder - Book Now!
Spring is in the air and we've been busy organising the first of our 2017 Major Gatherings. This event should be a great opportunity for you to dust the cobwebs off your Porsche and take her for a drive.
We are heading West and to Salthill, Galway. Our base for the weekend will be the Galway Bay Hotel which many of you will know hosted our 2011 and 2013 Annual Dinners. The Hotel has ample car parking, easy access to the City and yet on the correct side of Galway for a run out to Connemara and is family friendly with leisure facilities.
Have a look at their web site http://www.galwaybayhotel.net/
We have negotiated some good member rates, whether you want to stay one or two nights, bring family/wife/partner/kids or just come by yourself.
Members are also welcome to join us for dinner on Saturday night or just the drives.
The hotel cost for PCI members are as follows;
* €169 per person sharing to include 2 nights bed and Breakfast & 1 Evening Meal (Sat Gala Dinner).
* €105 per person sharing to include 1 nights Bed and Breakfast & 1 Evening Meal (Sat Gala Dinner).
* Complimentary B&B for up to two children sharing.( under 12 )
* Single Supplement are charged at €40 per night.
Children’s menu charged at €13.50 per child or they are more than welcome to order from the Table d’hôte menu and would be charged accordingly.
The cost of the gala dinner for members who are not staying is €35 per person, (you must book this no later than Friday 17th March ).
All bookings (including dinner) should be made with Colleen Baxster at the Hotel on 091 520 520 and you must mention PORSCHE CLUB IRELAND, to get the rate and be included in the numbers for Saturday nights dinner.
We plan an interesting and exciting weekend in the City of the Tribes and the West of Ireland opens up to us the possibility of drives on the Saturday and Sunday on roads that would be on any List of the Ten Best Driving Roads in the World.
We will assemble at 11.45 am for Saturdays Drive with departure at Noon, so there's no excuse as with the recent motorway improvements Galway is within easy reach of most parts of the country. Just to mention there is no official plan for the Friday night but if you arrive early, there will be lots of others to join for dinner in town or a pint later in the hotel bar. Our local Western Region Organiser Eamonn McKeon and his enthusiastic Galway Gang have some surprises in store for us.
This is a great chance to enjoy your Porsche, meet some old and make some new friends. If you have not yet been to one of our annual dinners they really are worth the effort as they're so much more than just a dinner, the craic is always mighty!
We hope you can make it!
