    PCA chapter has extended an invitation for us to join in the fun, so you can start in Potomac with them, or meet up in L'ville.

    I did this event with pca a couple of years ago. It was really cool, specifically the rally part. I wish there were more BMWs there. Is anyone planning to attend?

    According to the PCA site, they are now starting at 10AM at a different location:

    Our final rally of the year is the annual drive to Lovettsville, VA for Oktoberfest on September 24th. Each year the town invites all the German car clubs to join them to celebrate their German heritage. Passersby will be given a ballot and asked to vote for their favorite car. Last year we had about 60 cars in the show.

    Our rally begins at 10:00am in front of Borders Books, 20926 Frederick Rd., Germantown, MD 20874. Back by popular demand, we are replaying our Its All About the Speed rally where teams are simply asked to add up all the speed limit signs they see along the route. The route is about 64 miles and can easily be completed in less than 2 hours. When we reach Lovettsville, we will be joined by other PCA groups doing a Drive-and-Dine, others who just venture there on their own, and maybe some BMWs and Audis.

    Trophies will be awarded to the top three teams closest to the correct answer without going over. We will also be awarding the season championship trophy at this event. As each of our 3 previous rallies this year have all been won by different teams, the championship is up for grabs.

    The fee for this rally is $25, payable at the start. Please register by email to rally@pcapotomac.org. There is no online registration.

    My wife and I are thinking about going - we had to cancel going to autoy's octoberfest last weekend, so this looks like it would satisfy our need for good German food.

    Are we gonna crash the PCA rally or start our own or just meet at Lovettsville? I'm planning on starting at Cars & Coffee at Katie's Coffee House in Great Falls and then head to Germantown to start with the Porsche clan unless someone wants to start from Great Falls and go our own way. Hope to see many of you along the way.
