About this event
Welcome to the PCA Nemacolin - Fallingwater Tour!
PCA Potomac’s Fallingwater trip is THE major overnight Dine & Drive event for PCA Potomac. This popular event combines an enjoyable drive to Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, multiple nights at the incredibly beautiful Nemacolin Resort, fine dining, scenic drives, and the highlight – a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob homes.
These legendary homes are known for how well they are integrated into the surrounding natural environment including the use of indigenous materials and the way the home becomes an element of the natural topography. The Nemacolin resort is one of only 6 hotels and resorts in the world to host Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond lodging and dining. We have negotiated a $180 per night room rate, which is a substantial savings over the rack rate.
For those who have not been on this trip before, it is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy yourself and your Porsche in the mountains and to meet other Club Members and Porsche enthusiasts. For those who have been before, we are expanding the trip this year. Last year 64 PCA members with their 33 cars attended the event, with many members returning once again. This year we expect to have similar attendance and are expanding the activities. And remember – Nemacolin has a dog spa and many family activities, so KIDS and DOGS are very welcome!
For those who would like to make it a three day weekend, we will have cocktails Thursday night and a driving/touring day to some of the local resort towns on Friday. For those coming up on Friday, PCA Potomac is organizing a group drive up through the country. On Friday night, we will have a BBQ on the deck of the Golf Clubhouse overlooking the Golf Course. On Saturday, participants have the choice of participating in one or more activities, including mountain drive, a visit to Kentuck Knob, a Sporting Clays Shooting Tournament, and a Golf. Guests can also just relax and enjoy the spa and hotel facilities before the Saturday night banquet. On Sunday, participants can choose to relax at the resort, visit Fallingwater or enjoy a mountain drive back home.
The registration cost for 2014 is STILL $120 per person which covers the Friday BBQ dinner and Saturday banquet and wine; $145 per person also includes a tour of either Kentuck knob or Fallingwater; and $155 per person also includes tours of both houses. Shooting (if you need gun rental) is $65 per person and Golf is $65 per person. Advance registration is required by July 10, 2014 in order to ensure adequate planning for tours and dinner.
The only requirement is that you bring at least one Porsche!
