Sunday, 7 October 2018, 356 Club Sunday Run to Flo’s

#1 Post by Jim Alton » Sun Sep 02, 2018 11:31 pm

Charge your batteries, run some fuel through your carburetors and meet up with your fellow 356 enthusiasts!


Meet at the Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center (just 1.2 miles east of the corner of Carbon Canyon Road & Valencia Ave in Brea), just before 6:30 AM on the first Sunday of EVERY MONTH! Departure time is 6:35.6 AM SHARP!! All Porsches or whatever runs is welcome. Destination: the world famous Flo’s Airport Café located at the Chino Airport.

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 November 2018 run will be Sunday, 4 November 2018.

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!

It looks like we'll have a good chance to test our 6 volt lighting. From U.S. Naval Observatory Astronomical Applications Department:

Ok, it was a little dark when we got to the Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center.
