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.
Curt Emery – Second Vice President:
I love cars! A BMW guy for years; two 2002s, two M3s, X3, X5, 335I, I finally saw the light in 2015. We are on our second Macan, a ‘21 GTS, we previously owned a Cayman S and a Panamera Tourismo 4S. Our sporty car, acquired early this year, is a ‘17 911 4S. As a retired fighter pilot, generally you can never have too much power, or too much speed!!!
I’ve enjoyed several HPDEs, multiple monthly socials and a number of tours. My wife, Carole, and I attended Treffen Scottsdale, which cemented my desire to serve our club. Porsche knows how to put on exceptional events.
Our club is first rate due to the extraordinary effort of volunteers, well-planned events and enjoyable socials. My aim is do my part, in any way I can. I look forward to serving the board and the membership.
Lou Morales – Secretary:
Hello, AMR! My passion for Porsche began when I saw the movie “Le Mans” with Steve McQueen at the theater. I was about nine. Nothing ever swayed my purpose of one day owning a Porsche. As a young USAF lieutenant, every time a new model would come out, I would visit the Porsche dealership in Sunnyvale, California, and test drive it. I found out that I could usually afford and “entry level” car, but NOT the insurance (I was under 25-years-old at the time)! I had to live vicariously by driving my best friend’s 1980 911 SC Targa. In 1984, he and I bought a trashed 1972 911 T to make it into an autocrosser. We joined the Golden Gate Region (GGR) of PCA and set to work on the car. I was able to help him rebuild the transmission before I was deployed to Europe.
Several assignments later, in 1995 I ended back in California (Vandenberg AFB) and began an earnest search for MY Porsche. I’d take several days of leave and look at 4-5 cars looking for “the one” that was just for me. It took me a year and looking at 28 cars total to find my meteor gray metallic 1982 911 SC, 27 years after the passion was instilled in me.
Shortly after, I got assigned to Peterson AFB, here in Colorado Springs and rejoined PCA via AMR in 1999. I’ve always enjoyed the social aspects of the Club and have always wanted to participate more. This year the opportunity to give back to the Club presented itself and I decided to offer my services as Secretary for the Board and was graciously accepted. I hope to be of service to AMR through handling the responsibilities of that role, help the Region navigate through the effects of the economic- & pandemic-induced challenges.
I strongly encourage everyone to volunteer and help us move forward. The more folks that help, the easier and more rewarding it is for everyone. I truly take to heart the motto, “It’s not just the cars, it’s the people.”
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:
This is my second time serving as Member at Large in AMR. Over my 15 years as a PCA member I have enjoyed being the PPIR HPDE Event Chair, Snowmass Heritage Fire Tour Chair, Equipment Manager, and Advertising & Sponsorship Chair along with coordinating many of AMR’s events. I am excited to be an integral part of this successful team again and strife to benefit the membership in a positive direction for the future.
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.
Denise Jordan – Past President
