For over 25 years rain or shine there has always been someone there to have breakfast and talk Porsche.

The Flo's run is the first Sunday every month--the May 2018 run will be Sunday, 6 May 2018. That's the weekend of the Planes of Fame Airshow.

The Flo's Run is back on the 356 Club of Southern California Website: www.356club.org/events!

The 356 Club updated its website several years back and the previous update didn't have a way to show recurring events. A brand new website launched a while back and the Sunday Run to Flo's is back!

I'm starting to think the promised 919 was just an April Fools joke.

We had a small turnout--just four cars--but we showed up after the break for Lit Meet Weekend.

The May Flo's Run will be Sunday, 6 May 2018 which happens to be the weekend of the big Planes of Fame Airshow. There will be parking restrictions. The 356s will arrive early enough that there's no problem but if you stay for the Airshow you'll have to move your car.
