Hand-held fire extinguishers

Hand-held fire extinguishers

If you've participated in any CVR driver's education event this year, then you already have a fire extinguisher, which is now required in all run groups. If you'll be adding a hand-held fire extinguisher to your Porsche, you want the extinguisher mounting bracket (which holds the extinguisher) to mount to something firm that won't let go at an inopportune time.  Brey-Krause has a line of stainless brackets ($70-$110) that mounts the extinguisher either in front or behind the seat. If you have a rollbar, there are adaptors to mount the extinguisher to it. Also, some mount the extinguisher bracket to the floor tunnel. If you do that, be sure the bracket mounts against the metal flooring, not carpet.  Consider using Loctite blue on the screws/bolts.  The extinguisher itself should be minimum 2 1/2 lbs size, preferably with a metal (vs plastic) head, and have a two strap bracket. In addition, you might want to consider getting a halogen extinguisher as opposed to a garden variety $9.99 special. The benefit of Halogen is that it doesn't leave a chemical residue in the knooks and crannies of your aluminum engine after the fire's put out.  Expect to pay around $125 for a halogen extinguisher and bracket.

There are many many places the club can use your help. If you have an interest in helping the club continue the great events for you, please consider contributing your time and expertise.

Jeff Torrey and I will serve as the 2019 nominating committee and our task is to find and interview qualified candidates for the elected offices of NCR: Vice President and Secretary.  The only qualifications for office are that you must be a member in good standing with PCA / NCR and you must have a strong desire to help shape the future of the club.

We will also accept any names you might have for the various committees that are vital to the Club.  These are appointed positions so we will pass the names to the President for further consideration.

Please contact Ivy 603-767-6461 if you are interested in serving or nominating someone for one of the elected positions or if you have a suggestion for any Board position or Committee Chair.

Nominee Statements and Ballots will be circulated to the membership for final voting in October.  Election results will be announced at the Annual Meeting / Banquet in November.

Thank you for your ongoing support and participation in this important process.
