Description Welcome to the registration site for Boxstoberfest.  (Sept 11-13, 2020)

****-> This is Very Important - Read this entire message <-****
When you register for Boxstoberfest, you are registering the number of PEOPLE attending, not the number of cars. 

When you register, the Qty. @ Cost field indicates how many PEOPLE will be attending in your party, not the number of cars.  Any person who participates in ANY event must be registered.  If you indicate 1 in the Qty. @ Cost field, it means only one person is attending.  If you indicate any other number than 1 in any event, it means you need to register more than 1 on the Qty. @ Cost field.  The registrar will check the numbers and if it appears more than 1 are attending and the field only indicates 1, he will send you a note.  The QTY and associated MUST be paid prior to the event signup date or your entire admission will be denied.  Also, please make sure when registering you access the Options tab, and select the drive, dinner, and shirt options BEFORE clicking pay.  Registration cutoff date is 10:00 pm August 28, 2020 and t-shirt cutoff date is August 21. ****** Due to overwhelming demand and capacity limits, we limit registration to each driving event for safety and to ensure everyone has a good time.  The main event route is limited to 80 cars, the rally tour to 20 cars and the scenic tour to 30 cars.  If one event fills up, please do consider another - they are all fun.  The Scenic Tour and Rally generally always have plenty of room for participants.  Please remember, Rule 1 of Boxstoberfest is safety, which means DO NOT PASS (there will be a test on this).  Boxstoberfest IS NOT a high speed driving event, it is A TOUR.  The event will provide thrills and test your driving prowess ON PUBLIC ROADS, but THIS IS A TOUR.  There is absolutely NO PASSING allowed (unless you can safely pull over and wave those behind you ahead).  If you are looking to drive all out, pass others, or otherwise be stupid, we respectfully ask you find the proper venue (DE, Performance Driving School, or otherwise) because this is A TOUR.  While not required, we highly suggest you have a tech inspection done (most dealers do this for free).  Ensure your tires have adequate tread, your brakes are properly maintained, and your vehicle is fit enough to sustain an all day driving event in the TX heat.  Our routes take us to the nether-lands of rural Texas - Cell service is iffy and it's a long wait for a tow truck should something break.

Boxstoberfest, an officially sanctioned PCA event hosted by Lone Star Region PCA, is the largest annual Porsche Enthusiast event held in the Texas Hill Country.  We welcome all models of Porsches, not just Boxsters.  Our event focuses on driving the most beautiful and challenging roads in the central United States, and the camaraderie of 200+ fellow Porsche enthusiasts! As with last year’s event, the venue for all events will be at The Hangar Hotel (  The Hangar Hotel is located at the Gillespie County Airport, and affords a spectacular location to gather all the cars, people, and launch the drives. Due to the fabulous reception of the venue in past years, most previous attendees pre-booked the Hangar Hotel for this year as they were checking out last year - so the Hanger Hotel may be fully booked and have a waiting list. (there are a few overflow rooms at the Brewery, on Main Street).  You can contact the hotel directly (830-997-9990) and request to be added to the wait listing and and check Brewery availability. 

There are social events, multiple driving events including a 225 mile spirited follow the leader tour in the Hill Country, and a milder paced shorter drive using the a clue based rally format (follow cryptic clues to finish closest to actual mileage) geared for first timers and those who desire to see the scenery a little more, and a leisurely self drive through the Hill Country.  Whichever you choose, you are sure to have the time of your life. Please note, the clue based rally is subject to at least 6 cars registering, or the event is subject to cancellation (but this has never happened).  The Rally will be offered as a Friday pre-event starting at 1:00 pm from the Hangar Hotel, and offered again on Saturday if you do not want to participate in the longer drive. 

Please make sure when you are registering you select all meal/shirt options, and use the link to pre-pay.  We request pre-payment because our agreements with the restaurants is that we pay for all meals and venue rental in a lump sum, in advance.  This keeps the costs down so everyone can enjoy the most cost effective event of this kind on the planet.  It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to complete the payment process.  If you do not do so, and have not received a confirmation email that registration is complete (not just a receipt of payment), contact the registrant.  Incomplete registrants will not be allowed to participate.

If you need to cancel, please do so by September 1.  Otherwise, we would have already made all lunch/dinner reservations and commitments as to the number of guests (i.e. we pay if you show or don't).  There are no refunds for registration/dinner/lunch drives after September 1.  There are no refunds after September 1.  (not a typo or repeat, there are no refunds after September 1). 

Please note: This registration site is designed to register 1 driver, 1 navigator, and single vehicle - trying to add a bunch of cars, drivers, co-drivers, guests, different drive groups, different dinner guests..... to a single registration makes the registrar's head spin.  Call or email me instead ( Please make sure you get the number registered correct (the QTY @ field), as well as number of people attending each drive, dinner, etc....

The registration fee includes (1) T Shirt for each registrant, however please note the deadline to register and be guaranteed a shirt is August 11 at 6:00 pm.  We will order a few extras and provide based on registration date.

Refund Policy No refunds after Sept 1, 2020. 

Due to COVID-19, certain events may be cancelled such as the closing dinner or winery tour.  If that is the case and you have registered for a cancelled event, all fees for that event will be refunded.  We do not anticipate the need would arise to cancel any driving events or outdoor show and shine. 
Indemnity Policy Please see host website for details.
