We need to have a good idea on numbers as the hotel are looking for confirmation of numbers ASAP.
PCI will host its ever popular annual concourse event at the stunning Radisson SAS St Helens hotel in Stillorgan in Dublin on Sunday August 3rd 2008. This is an event not to be missed and we would actively encourage all members and their families to attend.
A sumptuous barbeque menu has been prepared by the hotel exclusively for Porsche Club Ireland and the mouth watering dishes will not disappoint even the most hardened gourmet diner.
The concourse will be held on the private back lawn of the hotel with exclusive use of a private function room and bar. The hotel is located just 2 miles south of Dublin City Centre and has plenty of accommodation available for those who wish to make a weekend of it and stay over.
This is a subsidised event and has only been possible with the support of the Radisson SAS hotel itself, and the Porsche Centre Dublin.
There will be plenty to do on the day if you don't fancy shining your car to within an inch of its life ! A virtual racing challenge will take place on games consoles with large screens. Naturally enough there will be prizes for all the kids taking part - regardless of whether they are old enough to hold a driving licence or not!
There will also be on display a selection of Porsche Racing cars from the current Porsche Open Racing series, some historic rallying Porsches and a selection of new and used Porsches from our sponsor, Porsche Centre Dublin.
The main event of the day will be the concourse competition itself, however, don't worry if you think you haven't a competition winning car. There will be plenty of classes, from concourse to best effort - it’s taking part that is the rewarding part.
The event kicks off officially at 2pm - but please feel free to arrive earlier. Car washing facilities will be available from around 12 noon.
Judging will be at 5.30pm for the concourse and food to follow around 6pm on the back terrace. We will also have music during the evening until midnight.
Costs for PCI members is €35 per adult and their partners, with children under 12 free. Children aged 12-18 with cost €15 each and for non-members, the cost is €45 per head. The quality of the food on the day can be seen on the attached PDF menu.
Needless to say, no one will be disappointed !
