2010 Porsche 968 Celebration, April 23-25: Hershey, PA

Spring is coming and so is the Hershey Swap Meet…our annual chance to gather, gab, and engorge on chocolate and fun in Hershey, PA.

This year’s event will be held RAIN or SHINE from Friday, April 23rd, through Sunday, April 25th, to give you more events and more opportunities to meet and visit with your 968 friends. 

The atmosphere will be very casual and relaxed.

The hotel will provide a hose and water on Friday afternoon so that you will be able to rinse and shine at the hotel.  The parking lot will have a special corral marked off with cones so that the cars are not disturbed.

There will be no organized group dinner on Friday evening. Everyone is encouraged to mingle and meet. We will have some recommendations for dining.

8:30 AM SHARP!!!: Leave from Hilton Gardens Inn at to caravan to the Hershey Swap Meet.

Jim Groelinger, PCA 968 Register co-advocate, will be collecting $10.00 CASH before we leave the hotel and will pay for our group to be parked in the concours area at the swap meet. If you do not drive in with the group, please join us in the concours area when you arrive (you will need to pay the $10 fee yourself at the gate).

As we’ve become accustomed to, there will be a “tailgate” party at the Swap Meet, headed by Kathy Downs (our perennial party organizer). Please do all you can to help her by bringing chairs, blankets, and any special food items you wish to share (if it needs to be refrigerated, you need to have a cooler).
