WebMaster and Historian

Julie Woods

“Hello, I am Julie Woods. I am the club’s webmaster and historian. I have been a member of the club from the beginning and am a Charter Member. I am interested in capturing the history of our club and building the Historian’s Corner on our website. Please let me know if you have any stories/memorabilia/history of our club that you would like to share. I do share the love of beautiful cars. I remember at 15 years old sitting on the corner watching cars go by with my friend saying “I am going to get a Mercedes 380 SL”. I do have a thing for convertibles. I got my MB “280” SL from Europe when I got my first real job. Thanks to my husband, I learned how special our Porsches are and the people who drive them. I am grateful for all the special people I have met through our club. I also have a TR6 (remember, I said I had a thing for convertibles).”

PCA Zone 13 Rep

Mark Roethemeier

“I would like to say hello to all the PCA members of Zone 13. In 2009 I joined PCA and it has been a great experience. Many years ago after college, I started buying worn out Euro cars which led to Alfa Romeos. I have always enjoyed wrenching cars back to health and autocrossing. During that time, I also became involved in the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. It required me to drive 2 hours to meetings and events, but it also allowed me to serve as Pres of the Alfa region for a period of time for a small group of Alfa enthusiasts. Eventually, I had a “straying eye” and a lightly used 2006 Cayman S began to call my name. Very soon after buying the 2006 Cayman S in late 2008, I joined PCA only to find my PCA region (Southern Indiana) was no longer active and none of the club phone numbers were answered. I was quite disappointed and very much wanted to participate in PCA in my home town. After a couple months I received a call from the Zone Rep, Ken Hold, asking if I would like to be placed into another region. My answer was “how about there being a chance to get SIR going again?”. Much to Ken’s credit, he offered counsel and gave me a few months to see what could be done. There were a few others that had recently joined and they were asked to fill out the officer positions and off it went. I became Pres and following have continued to serve as the Events Chair and the Membership Chair while the membership has grown. My past Porsches have been the 2006 Cayman S, a 1990 911 Carrera 4 which turned a good profit towards buying a low miles 2016 Spyder. My current Porsches are a 2015 Cayman GTS (signed by Wolfgang Porsche at 2015 Parade) and the 2016 Spyder. Much to my surprise, I have been honored to be considered and asked to serve as Zone 13 Rep. Cheryl and I look forward to meeting and interacting with the regions of our Zone. Whatever I can do to help the people of Zone 13, I will be happy to serve the regions of Zone 13.”
