What are “Navigators’ Day Off” (NDO) activities?
For those who regularly occupy the left seat, this is your day to be pampered at the resort spa, explore the local area, have a fun adventure, or visit special destinations at a relaxed pace.

If you prefer, just relax and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings. The choice is yours!

The base registration fee includes welcome reception, breakfasts, evening food events, event apparel, and other amenities. Escorted drives and “Navigators’ Day Off” (NDO) activities have additional fees for rentals, lunch, admission, etc. that are added during the registration process. Please note that you must register your Co-Registrant at the time of registration to ensure that you receive your first tour choice(s). Adding a Co-Registrant after submitting your registration cannot guarantee availability on tours.
Is there a WAITLIST for Treffen? What about for Tours?
If the event sells out, you will be prompted to add your name and email to the WAITLIST. The Treffen Registrar will contact you should spots become available. However, we cannot guarantee that your first tour choice will be available. Similarly, if the tour you wanted to sign up for is not available, please email the Treffen Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to that waitlist and contacted should spots become available.
How many people can I register for Treffen?
Because you must be logged in to your PCA account to register, Treffen registration is for a primary registrant and a co-registrant only. You cannot add additional "guests" to your registration as the event and tours may be sold out.

Can I reserve a room at the special rate prior to Treffen registration opening?
No. Reservations at The American Club are for registered Treffen participants only and can be made after receipt of your registration confirmation. Instructions will be included in your email. Please note that the event room block at the hotel with the special PCA rate is reserved for registered Treffen participants. Reservations made prior to the official opening of the room block are not guaranteed the PCA Treffen rate and may be subject to cancellation by the resort.
Do I have to stay at the “official” hotel?
No; however, part of the Treffen experience is the host hotel. PCA has negotiated a special rate at these four and five-star hotels and has contracted for a substantial room block to accommodate registered Treffen participants. These resorts have also offered to extend the program rate both before and after Treffen to registered Treffen participants subject to hotel availability.
May I participate in Treffen without a Porsche?
The destinations’ roads are best experienced in a Porsche; however, a Porsche is not required. Treffen is seeking information regarding rental Porsches for future Treffens.
When and where are future Treffens?
Spring 2022 Treffen will be held at The Broadmoor. Future Treffen events can be found on the Future Treffens page of this website. Please be sure to check eBrake News and the PCA website for Treffen announcements.
