Upcoming Events!

Sunday, Oct 4 at 9:00am      HCP Fall Cars & Coffee, Saratoga Auto Museum

Please join your fellow HCP Colleagues on Sunday, October 4 from 9:00-11:00am for a Fall Cars & Coffee at the Saratoga Auto Museum in the Saratoga Spa State Park.  This event is generously sponsored by our friends at Porsche of Clifton Park.

The location of the museum can be found here:  https://g.page/AutoToga?share

We will have free-of-charge access to visit the museum and, as the event name denotes, we will have coffee and baked goods.  As we did at our annual picnic, we will again be accepting donations for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY (https://regionalfoodbank.net).  

Please bring and wear a mask and if you have not already done so at a prior event in 2020, we will require a signed PCA Communicable Disease Waiver for which we will have available the form to fill out.

In the event of a high probability of rain that day, we do have a rain date of Saturday, October 17 from 9:00-11:00am.  I will advise ahead of time if we exercise the rain date option. 

We look forward to seeing you there!


Sunday, October 11th      Off the Beaten Path Foliage Tour 

Please RSVP to:  hcppca1959@gmail.com

This tour is dedicated to Porsche’s very capable SUV segment — the Cayenne and Macan. We will be enjoying the foliage of Vermont without all the traffic as we take this tour off road!  We will begin our trek in Arlington Vermont and travel over a Category 1 dirt road that follows the Roaring Branch River through the valley as we pass the Long and Appalachian Trails surrounded by the Green Mountains. After 15 miles we return to paved roads and conclude our tour at the Stratton Mountain Resort.

Please note:  Have no fear — this is NOT technical off-roading, it is primarily a dirt road.  Some ground clearance is required, but have no fears for damage to your vehicle other than some dust (a great opportunity for your Fall car detailing before Winter).   This is a great family friendly tour and any SUV or 4WD/AWD vehicle is welcome.  We highly discourage stock sports cars/sedans. 

The gondola at Stratton will be open offering rides to the summit for stunning views of southern Vermont and beyond. For even more spectacular views you can make the short hike to the historic fire tower where you will have a 360-degree view clear across four states and mountain ranges – the Greens, Whites, Adirondacks and Berkshires. At the base of the mountain Stratton Village offers a variety of shopping and dining options for you to enjoy.

If you would like to continue to explore the Southern Vermont area there are Manchester Designer Outlets in historic Manchester, VT. Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home summer home of Robert Todd Lincoln and his wife Mary Harlan Lincoln which is located just a few miles from downtown Manchester. For those who cannot get enough of the stunning views of Vermont you can take the Mount Equinox Skyline Drive to the top of Mount Equinox.

We will meet Sunday, October 11th at 10:00 am at the Arlington Recreation Park, Recreation Park Rd, Arlington, VT (Google Maps link).  The tour will take approximately an hour and once at Stratton you will be able to enjoy the rest of the day at your own pace and on your own schedule. 

Please be sure to bring your masks for those times when we are not in our cars and respect social distancing.  You will need to have a valid PCA COVID waiver on file or we will have blank forms available for you to fill out. We hope you will join us for this first of its kind off-road tour!
