May 5, 10:00am PHOTO SHOOT - Spring is in the air, and a perfect time to photograph your beautiful Porsche.

Get ready to have your beautiful Porsche photograph by a Professional Photographer!

Back in 1984, we had several of our members drive their cars out to City Park to be photographed with their family. The weather being so nice I’m thinking we can duplicate this, and please make sure that your car is spick-and-span clean.

We’re going to take several photographs of each car to make sure we get a beautiful shot. You can do this by yourself or with your family. The Porsche Club Mardi Gras Region is going to give for free, a beautiful 5 x 7 color print of your Porsche. I think we can do this on a Sunday, this way everyone will be able to come. I’m going to ask our members to please send me an R.S.V.P. so I know how many cars will have. I’m going to try to do this May 5, 2019 in the afternoon this is a Sunday 10 AM. I will post the location in the city park where the photo shoot will take place. it’s going to be a  wonderful afternoon so please make it.

Phil Daigrepont, President

70th Celebration

The 70th Celebration on Saturday was a big success.  The weather was perfect, the food was great and we had a wonderful escorted parade through uptown New Orleans.

I would like to thank:

  • Porsche of New Orleans for their sponsorship of Mardi Gras Region as well as hosting the party at the dealership.  They also provided the T-shirts and lanyards.  A big thank you goes to General Manager Ryan DeToro, Jennifer Taylor, Sean Kerwin and the rest of the PNO team.
  • Rick and Tina Payton for their ideas and help in putting on these events as well as their tireless efforts for the club in general.
  • Ben Gravolet for designing the credentials everyone received.  The design featured Ben’s photograph of his 356.  The 356 was supposed to lead our parade but unfortunately, it had a mechanical problem right before the event.  Ben put a lot of work into getting the car ready for us.
  • New Orleans and Jefferson Parish Motorcycle Officers for a great escorted parade. 

For those who didn’t make the parade, we had a photographer on St. Charles Ave.  take a photo of every car as we drove by.  These photos will be free to download as soon as they are made available to us.
