President - Bob Wilson

As many folks in the region may now be aware, PCANFL lost a Guiding Light and True Friend with the passing of longtime Board Member and Region President Bob Wilson during a PCA DE at Roebling Road in mid-February. Bob was involved in an on-track incident that also seriously injured Patrick Wilson (no relation), an Instructor that was riding with Bob. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob's wife Christa, Patrick and the families and friends of both. This is a trying time for all concerned and we ask that you join us in providing understanding and comfort for them during the difficult days ahead. Please note that Vice President Tim Kerns (see his entry below) is leading the Region until the task of selecting a new President can be completed.

Webmaster - Barry A. Waters

Barry first discovered the lure of the Porsche marque in the early 1980's while stationed with the U.S. Army just outside of Porsche's home in Stuttgart, DE, but it was his attendance of a Porsche Driving Experience (PDE) 2-Day Advanced Driving Course at Road Atlanta in 2002 that really set the hook! A 1986 911 Carrera Coupe and membership in PCANFL soon followed and a 1988 944 for wife Mindy came not long after that - a move that truly turned the passion into a 'family' affair. Additional driving instruction for both Barry and Mindy via the Porsche Sport Driving School (PSDS) Advanced and Master's Courses resulted in a 2008 Cayman S showing up next but not last, as a 2010 CPO Base Cayenne has recently been added to the mix. After 14 years of enjoying the 'Porsche Ownership Experience' and the benefits of PCA Membership, both can only agree that Porsche and PCANFL is one Wonderful combination!
