Later this week, we'll be rolling out the event registration information for the 2018 PCA-Chicago Dinner Dance and Annual Awards Ceremonies, which this year will be held on Saturday, December 8, 2016, at The Hyatt Lodge, in Oak Brook, Illinois, commencing at 6:00 p.m.

To make event participation as easy and enjoyable as possible, we've also booked a block of rooms on-site at The Lodge itself (see below), so you won't need to worry about driving back to your hotel at the end of the festivities. Instead, you can just saunter down the hallway at the end of the evening, your room will be ready, your pillows fluffed, and there you'll be!!! How easy is that?

We're also in the process this week of putting the finishing touches on the dinner menu (as always, event registration will be posted on, and we expect to have all of that information available to you by no later than the close of this coming weekend. It's not there yet, though, so please hold for further instructions!

In the meantime, . . . .

  • here's the hotel reservation web page: The Hyatt Lodge is located on the McDonald's Campus, 2815 Jorie Boulevard, Oak Brook, IL 60523. The number of available rooms is limited, though, so please book early;
  • if you'd care to make your reservations by telephone instead, please call 888-421-1442 and mention the "Porsche Club Holiday Party" to reserve your room at the special discounted rate;
  • THE HOTEL RESERVATION DEADLINE IS 11/16/2018. Please book early to ensure your discounted rate, and also because the number of rooms reserved in the Club's name is limited; and
  • REMEMBER: registering for the hotel does not register you for the event, or vice versa, so don't forget both steps (room reservations AND event registration).

Pricing and entertainment specifics are also being finalized this week, but in the meantime, check your calendar, reserve your baby-sitter or pet-sitter if you need either, and DO NOT DELAY, or you'll be stuck at home, so which would you rather be doing: celebrating a great year with wonderful friends (living the wonderful life) or hearing about it later?
