Welcome to P2O®!
As returning Chairperson of the 13th annual P2O®, I can assure you that it will not disappoint. The Mid-Ohio Region Porsche Club of America is excited to be returning to Granville for the sixth year. We are proud to host the P2O®, which brings club and non-club enthusiasts together to renew old acquaintances, make new ones, and enjoy a fine selection of Porsche models on display.
We hope you and your prized Porsche plan to attend this year. Your attendance will help raise money for regional charities, a P2O® tradition. Last year, we were able to donate $10,000 to The Christopher Carlson Foundation and the Granville area Boy Scouts of America. P2O® is not just a fun event; the benefits reach much further.
Our Marylynn’s Row is another fine example of that. Everyone knows someone affected by cancer. Marylynn Roe battled cancer with endless courage. In her memory and in her honor, we are continuing our tradition of MaryLynn’s Row, which is high-profile, reserved parking at the core of downtown Granville with a minimum of $100 donated to the designated charity. Again this year, Marylynn’s Row admission price is just $125. By attracting more entries to Marylynn’s Row, P2O® and MORPCA will raise more money to fight cancer. Please sign up for P2O® beginning April 1st and continue to honor Marylynn Roe.
In the past, we’ve registered Porsches from 19 states and Canada. In 2016, over 250 Porsches were on display, and this year we expect those numbers to continue at P2O® on Saturday, July 22nd. We look forward to a welcome party Friday evening, and there will be an organized drive on Sunday. Please join us!
Your pre-registration fee includes an event T-shirt, an event poster, and entry into the car show where beautiful cars and sponsors will be on hand to help make your Porsche ownership experience even better. Attendees will also have a chance to win great door prizes that will be given away throughout the day. In addition, we will continue with our People’s Choice Awards for the top 50 Porsches by popular vote. We think our event is the best bargain of the summer.
As great as the cars are, it’s the great people that create the success of P2O®. We hope you will enjoy your visit to this year’s event and make plans to attend next year. We look forward to seeing you on Friday night at the social gathering and for the rest of the weekend!
