The States of Oregon and Washington have started to open up again. But the pandemic is not over. We have held some club activities like Arrive and Drives, and Autocross. We will follow state, government and PCA guidelines to keep activities as safe as possible. We will require the use of face masks/face coverings as mandated or recommended by PCA, CDC and state guidelines. PCA also requires the sign-off on a Communicable Disease Release for attendance at any club events. As you know, there is no “zero risk” when dealing with COVID-19.
Here is a document with Oregon PCA guidance as of updated on August 24.
If you have any questions please contact Peg Ryan.

Here is the update from Portland Cars and Coffee:
“We have hung in there as long as we could, holding out hope that we could return to our usual Summer Featured Theme format for at least a few remaining Saturdays in 2020. Sadly, it is simply a sign of the (COVID) times that we will not be able to hold any more large gatherings before the fall rains return.
Our summer Featured Calendar is now officially finished for 2020. Featured Themes will return in 2021 during our summer season. In the meantime, we will continue to have Virtual Featured Theme weeks on Facebook and Instagram on a somewhat regular basis. We will announce a theme, and encourage you to post your vehicle and tag us.
As for meeting in person, we will eventually return to Langer’s Entertainment Center on a smaller scale. When we do, it will be similar to our typical Winter mode, with a more relaxed atmosphere and open parking in any available parking space.”
