Nate Adams – President:
As a kid, I can remember hanging around a mechanics’ shop and the dirt tracks around Jacksonville, which started my love for cars. Many years later after selling a different sports car and when the 944 first arrived in the US, I told myself I will own a Porsche someday. Well it took longer than I expected, but I bought my first Porsche in 2015, a 1999 Boxster in Artic Silver over Boxster Red that I still own. I joined PCA and AMR as soon as I got her home. Two short years later, I asked my wife why she doesn’t drive the Porsche and her reply was “because we only have one and I don’t want to break it”. So, I remedied that and picked up a 2014 Cayman S in White over Black. Now we each drive one!
I first became more involved in AMR when I volunteered to lead a tour for Rocky Mountain High Way in 2017. Later that year, I became the region Tour Chair, started helping with tech inspections and grid at HPDEs, and then last year served as the region First Vice-President. This year I am taking on the role of region President. You’ll find me at lots of PCA/AMR events including socials, breakfasts, tours, as well as, helping with AXs and DEs. What I enjoy almost as much as driving either of my Porsches is meeting all of the great people in our region and PCA. I am looking forward to continuing to help AMR meet the needs of all of its members. Please find a way to help or volunteer with AMR and its activities since we survive as a club only with your involvement.
Dana Kasten – First Vice President:
I have been a member of the Alpine Mountain Region since I got my first Porsche 15 years ago (a birthday present from my husband). A few Porsches have come and gone in that time but we love our Cayenne Turbo and Boxster Spyder. I enjoy so many aspects of the club from the Socials to Tours to HPDEs. My husband and I currently chair the PPIR HPDE in April each year in addition to the Heritage Fire Tour to Snowmass each June so I hope to see you at an upcoming event. I have previously served as a Member at Large and most recently 6 ½ years as Treasurer and am excited to now fill the First Vice President position. I look forward to continuing to support the Club in the diverse range of activities that meet all of our members needs.
Larry Young – Second Vice President:
I became a Porsche owner some 30 years ago when our younger son gave me one for my birthday. Granted, it was only a Hot Wheels model, but he knew even then how much I wanted one and that was the best he could do.
It wasn’t until 2007 that my dream became reality with the purchase of a 2004 911 Cabriolet. It was definitely worth the wait, both for the cars and for the people we’ve come into contact with. I still remember how openly and graciously Nancy and I were welcomed at our first AMR meeting. Since then at every event we’ve felt that we are surrounded by a group of friends, including some we haven’t met yet.
I appreciate this opportunity to serve and look forward to meeting more of our members and working together to make our Club the best it can be for everyone.
Lou Morales – Secretary:
Pam Drummer – Treasurer:
I have been a member of Alpine Mountain Region since getting engaged and now married to my husband, Tim. What I have enjoyed the most is meeting the great people in our region and PCA. I am looking forward to continuing to help the club as Treasurer and working with all of the Members across all aspects that the club provides.
Dwight Kasten – Member At Large:
Bob Foltz – Member At Large:
I have always loved sports cars from my very first one, a “rough” 1956 Austin Healey 100-4 that I traded my ’59 Chevy for while in high school. Over the years I have owned many different sports cars, and they have all had their positive and negative traits – the latter was especially true for the electric British cars! I never dreamed of owning a Porsche, just assuming that they were well outside my budget. We were actually looking for a used Honda S-2000 back in 2012 when my wife Linda spotted an older Boxster on the lot and suggested that we test drive it just for kicks. Wow—nothing I had driven up until then could compare with this Porsche, and the kicker was that it was surprisingly affordable. I was hooked! We bought a 2002 Boxster S a few weeks later.
An acquaintance heard we had bought a Porsche, so he gave me a copy of the Alpine Mountain Region newsletter. It described a recent overnight tour that really sounded like a lot of fun. The next AMR event was the annual Christmas party, so with some trepidation we decided to attend. We were warmly welcomed by everyone, and immediately felt comfortable among our new friends. We have been active members of AMR since then and are now on our third Porsche, a 2013 Boxster S.
Over the years I have done tech inspections, served as control for numerous HPDE events, led one overnight and several day tours, and volunteered at numerous AMR events. I am currently the Safety Chair and in 2021 join the Board as Member-at-Large. I look forward to working with all of you in the coming years.
