2019 "Porsche's in the Pines" (October 2nd – 6th) — A Porsche Campout in Flagstaff, AZ.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
Registry members get 20% off until the 15th. Please use promo code "registry" at http://porschesinthepines.com

Do "Porsche people" camp? We think so, and hope to gather a few like-minded folks up in the cool forested pines of Flagstaff for some 60's and 70's style camping – low impact and lot's of fun! Although a Porsche is not required to attend, we'd like to have as many "air-cooled" vehicles around camp as possible. If you plan to trailer your vehicle, there will be plenty of trailer parking. We even have room for a few RVs and camping/toy haulers.

The campsite will has fun things to do, lots of hiking & biking, and is located 10 minutes from Flagstaff and the "High Desert Holiday" host hotel. Just a simple fun family-style event to experience and enjoy our cars and the people who drive them!

*****

PLEASE NOTE: This is a separate event from the "High Desert Holiday" which will be held in Flagstaff during the same week.

Although not associated with the AZ Outlaws or 356 Registry, they have graciously opened their Saturday Concours event to our campers as well as Sunday's Swapmeet. However, anyone NOT registered with the Concours must attend as a spectator only, and all other HDH events will require proof of registration.

I camp several times a year with my 356. Daytona Speedway (twice a year), Sebring (1-2 time/yr), Road Atlanta, Laguna Seca etc... I sleep in my 1969 Canvas VW Bus tent that came with the Westfalia campers. I don't see why one wouldn't unless it was too hot out. Wish I was closer

For those of you from out of town, this camp out is being put together by great people and will be a great time for sure! The holiday sold out very quickly and it’s nice to see how dedicated 356’ers are to gathering and enjoying the sport that they would be willing to organize a camp out for those of you that could not register in time...the temperature will be perfect during the days (mid 70’s) and a little chilly at night ( mid 40’s) ....so pack some warm clothes and gear!! Flagstaff is a winter wonderland!

That's awesome, I really appreciate your posts guys! Thank you to Matt (who also puts on the BEST Porsche Swapmeet in AZ), and Mark definitely wish you were closer.

Registration is open and its set up so Registry members will get 20% off until the 15th. Please use promo code "registry" at http://porschesinthepines.com

This should be a fun event for everyone and is a great option for those who may not have been able to register for the Holiday. The Sunday Concours will be worth the drive even if you can't stay for all 4 days. We've already have a few VWs planned to attend as well as some nice 356s. It should be a great time for all, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. Pack your bags!

Joris, I never cease to be amazed at how far away you are, but how well connected you are as well.

Campout is just over a week away... there's plenty of room to join in the fun! Even if you're not camping, we'll still have beers, brats and campfires on friday. Come say hello in between Holiday events! Easy access from the freeway and no off-road driving. Take some cool photos of your car in the pine trees, buy a shirt and stay for a brat and chat.

also started a facebook group called "Porsche Camping" for future events, sharing adventures, and to help spread the word.

This just in. The Registry will allow non-registered MEMBERS OF THE 356 REGISTRY WITH CURRENT MEMBERSHIP CARDS IN THEIR POSSESSION to attend the tech sessions. HDH Badges and cards will be checked at the door and if non-registered members have a current membership card in their possession, they will be able to enter upon signing a liability release.
