After we return, the fun continues at 2:30PM with the Shine & Show at "The Lookout". If you're proud of it, bring it!  This will be a low key, tops only "concours" to give us all an opportunity to socialize and enjoy each other's examples of the marque we so love, so don't be bashful or think your car is not nice enough... this ain't Pebble Beach, or even the Air & Auto Classic for that matter.  It'll be a great photo op as well.  You will have a chance to dust off your car before the Shine and Show if you desire.

Freshen up after the show and join us at the FSR Hospitality Suite, which will open at 5PM.  The official festivities begin at 6PM with no host cocktails and a Silent Auction for Charity, which will feature some spectacular items available for your bidding.  Proceeds will support First Settlers Region charities (please bring your checkbook!).  Dinner will begin at 7PM on the terrace overlooking the beautiful Shenandoah Mountains.  Besides the view, the evening will be highlighted by our guest speaker, Derek Daly, championship racer and Formula 1 driver.  He'll also be signing copies of his book, Race to Win, which is available for purchase here when you register for the event.  Awards from the Shine and Show will also be presented. 

Dress for the dinner event is resort casual.  What the heck is resort casual?  For the men, no ties required.  For the ladies, you always know what to wear.  But be advised, there may be an informal "coolest Porsche tie" contest.
