I’m Jamie Donaldson, long time resident of Georgetown, and Porsche owner since buying a 1973 914 from my Dad in 2002. As the original owner he took great care of her and I am continuing the same, joined Bluegrass Region in 2003. Since then I have also acquired a Cayman and a Cayenne, so I’m a single brand owner. This is my second term as Director, and as a retired professional photographer I will continue as Bluegrass Region photographer. Bluegrass Region members have been a welcoming group, and I actively enjoy the events and the fellowship of members.
Hello, I’m Bill Larkin and currently a Director of the Bluegrass Region. I joined PCA and the Bluegrass Region in 2014. Carol and I have really enjoyed meeting all of the great people associated with our club. We love the socials and the driving tours. We enjoy worldwide travel (when it is safe again) and I lived in northern Germany for three years, where I fell in love with Porsche (but could not afford one). We currently own a 996 Targa and this year I added a 2014 Boxster. I also enjoy watching auto and motorcycle racing and yes, I still drive a motorcycle, but very carefully. I have been a director for several years and enjoy representing our members at events and at the board meetings. In addition, I was the safety chair for two years.
I have to confess that I have not always been a Porsche person. When I was younger owning a Porsche seemed no more likely to me than owning a Rolls-Royce. The sports car that I could afford was the Mazda RX-7. In a futile attempt to look cool I bought my fiancée Kathy a new 1985 RX-7. Coolness did not ensue but we got married anyway. We both joined the Central KY Region of the SCCA and were active for several years, I was autocross chair for a couple of years and Regional Ex for a short time. Then a child and job change ended our car club experience. After we bought Kathy a new car, she let me use the Mazda as my every day driver until it got totaled, but that’s another story. 20 years later, after I retired, the need for speed bit me again. In 2016, I started looking for another sports car. After many hours of YouTube viewing and long conversations with my neighbors about the importance of 50/50 weight balance, manual vs automatic transmissions, and the optimum temperature for cold beer I decided to look for a Porsche Boxster. I found a 2014 Boxster S with PDK transmission and much to my surprise I found that I could actually afford to buy the car. Soon afterward Kathy and I joined the Bluegrass Region of the PCA. Kathy and I have enjoyed the activities that the club provides to its members, we both enjoy the monthly socials, Porsche club cars and coffee, the club tours, and for the past two years I have been participating in the PCA High Performance Driver education courses. I hope to use this opportunity to give some of my time back to the club in return for all the fun activities that it has provided to me.
I’m Mike Scanlon. My wife, Dawn and I joined BGR-PCA in 2021 when I bought my 2017 911-S-CAB. I bought my first Porsche in 2002 and have loved them ever since. I am very excited about tracking, touring and enjoying the company of fellow Car Folks. I currently serve on the Executive Board of the Keeneland Concours and have served on several community and non-profit boards over the years. I hope to help welcome new members to the club and support tracking, touring and the other activities that have made this a great club.
