Schonesland 2024 Omaha Cars and Coffee Driving Tour

July 12 @ 8:00 am - July 13 @ 8:00 am

Registration ends in 4 months at July 12, 2024 11:59 PM CDT – click here to register on MSR!

This is a shared event with the Schonesland and Great Plains PCA regions.

The Schonesland Club will meet 10:30 am Friday, June 12th at the Handlebar restaurant in Dallas Center.  After the Driver’s Meeting (at 10:30), we will have lunch at 11:00 in the Handlebar then will be starting the drive around noon.

We will drive to Omaha on the byways as typical and should arrive at the Durham Museum around 2:30 (please bring $15 per person for the Durham Museum tour to avoid a line of people paying once we get there). At the museum, will have a docent to guide us, and he will take us through the highlights for two hours, as there is a LOT to see. While it was a train station “back in the day”, the real focus of the museum is on the settling and growth of Omaha from the 1800’s on. Both Roy and Bill spent two hours touring the museum and could have easily spent another hour! We realize museums are not everyone’s cup of tea. So, if a museum tour is just not your thing, you can drive with us to Omaha and then head to the hotel, check in, and then go across the street and test drive Porsches all afternoon! Or break off from the group and do an abbreviated tour on your own, and then head to the hotel. If two hours is not enough at the museum, stay as long as you like. Lastly, as we will be right in the Old Market area, you could spend some time exploring that area.

After the Museum tour, we will continue onto the Residence Inn Omaha West for check in (18202 Cuming Street). Room rates are $129-$139 for the night and you can call the hotel at 402-289-9500 or use the link below to make your reservation:


We will meet the Great Plains Porsche Club event attendees at Farmer Brown’s Restaurant located at 2620 River Road Drive in Waterloo, NE (6 miles from the Residence Inn) with 6:00 p.m. cocktails followed by 7:00 p.m. dinner. Dinner and drinks will be at each member’s cost. Entree selections will be Roast Beef, Country Style BBQ Back Ribs, 4 piece Fried Chicken Dinner or Salmon Filet.

In the morning, we will need to have our cars parked in the Berkshire Hathaway parking lot (331 Village Point Plaza) by 7:30 a.m., which is just across the freeway (this is where the Supercar Saturday event takes place, and we will have our own Porsche parking area). “Ollie the Trolley” will shuttle us back across the freeway (running from 7:30-9:30) to the Porsche of Omaha Dealership Service Bay for breakfast. Following breakfast we will head back to the car show via
“Ollie the Trolley” for the main event to tour the huge collection of Exotics, Classics, American muscle, Europeans and JDM’s – it’s a car enthusiast’s dream! There is no charge for breakfast or for admission to Supercar Saturday.

After the show you are free to enjoy more time in Omaha or head back home to Des Moines on your own.

Please RSVP when registering with the appropriate number to indicate if you are attending the dinner at Farmer Brown’s and the breakfast at Porsche of Omaha so we can provide accurate counts for both.

Directions will be available on the Ride with GPS app
