Prez Says:

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

Ah yes, the first article after Parade – finally

it is easy to pick a topic to write about! There are

several big stories of this year’s Parade. It was a

very good year to be a Maverick in Milwaukee,

that’s for sure. We did very well in every event,

and brought home many trophies. The biggest

shock would have to be that Wendy, Jasmine,

and I won the Porsche Family of the Year award!

I thought that was reserved for people who had been going to

Parades for dozens of years, but it was wonderful to have our

efforts recognized at a national level. It was a spectacular follow-up

to Lanean’s Enthusiast of the Year award for 2000.

The other big shock was to find out my tires were the wrong

size for the Parade Driving Event (autocross). I had 45 series tires,

and for P14 you cannot have lower than 50 series tires. So Wendy

and I got disqualified from the autocross even though each of our

three times bested our nearest competitor’s best time. Wendy

even had one lap where she killed the car and restarted it, and still

finished with a time that would have won P14L. (Yes, there were

other drivers there – I think 9 men and 3 or 4 women).

The trip up and back were pleasantly uneventful. No

blowouts, no spins in the middle of the highway, no flats – we even

spent the night where we planned and got decent amounts of

sleep! Jasmine was an angel for the entire trip, and had so much

fun with the Porsche People. Her favorite event was probably the

kids’ autocross, organized by our own Lanean Hughes. Lanean set

up a wonderful little course of pylons and tires and the Michelin

Man waved the green flag to start the tiny entrants on their way. A

great time was had by all – spectators and competitors alike.

Look for a full write-up of Parade and all the Maverick

results and pictures in next month’s issue. Having just gotten

back, there isn’t enough time to do a quality job of summarizing

the week full of events before the printing deadlines.

Every month, I get a publication from PCA national that

talks about a different topic. This past month dealt with Boxster

owners, and how to get them more active in the club. This is a

topic that is important to me, as this seems to be an underserved

market for PCA. The proliferation of other Boxster clubs shows

James Shoffit driving at Standridge with his “illegally equipped” 911.

that the Boxster owners are indeed interested in organized events

and socials, but might not be aware of the benefits that PCA has

to offer. So a few of us are going to try to organize some Boxster

events coming up very soon. Of course anyone would be able to

attend, but the focus will be on getting some member and nonmember

Boxster owners together to discuss and compete with

their new toys.

The board meeting will be on Thursday, August 9th, so mark

it on your calendars. We are getting some new faces now that we

moved the date to Thursday, which will be good for all of us.

The Post-Parade Party will be August 11th at the Prairie

House, and you don’t want to miss that. If you have never been to

a Parade, but are even remotely interested, come find out what all

the fuss is about. You just can’t imagine how much fun there is to

be had with other Porsche people till you experience it firsthand.

August 25th and 26th will be the Mineral Wells Family

Reunion. We are trying to get all the people who used to be

MineralRing regulars to come out and remember the good old

days. As always, all members will be welcome at the events, but it

would be really neat to see a bunch of faces out there that we

haven’t seen in a while. I am really looking forward to this event!

So come on out, and join the fun!

Pam’s Page

by Pam Abdalla, Slipstream Editor

As I got ready for my first time-trial the

weekend of July 21st, packing my umbrella and

sun block, I wondered what exactly I was thinking?

It’s 200 degrees outside and driving in this

kind of heat without air conditioning (to make

the car perform better) and with a hot helmet

on, you’d think a person would have to be crazy.

I certainly thought the idea was, and therefore,

was considering going as a spectator only. But

my husband and Wendy Shoffit talked me into participating

instead. Well, now that it’s all over, I’m glad I did it! Yes, it was

hot. In fact, it was extremely hot. However, I must say that the

part that was hot was when I wasn’t driving. Once I got in the car

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary

First off, thanks to Teri Davis for taking the

minutes for the first half of the meeting.

James called the meeting to order at 7:01,

well sorta to order. Control was eventually

regained and the meeting progressed. First item

up for discussion is the use of PCA message

boards to be placed at the area Porsche dealerships.

Club members have volunteered to

update messages and restock the boards as necessary. The club

currently owns one board and will be purchasing two additional

boards. The boards will be placed at Park Place Porsche, The

Porsche Store and Autobahn.

The nominating committee is looking for anyone interested

in getting involved in Maverick Region management at a board

level. The club has 4 position that are decided by election of the

membership as a whole. President, Vice President, Secretary, and

Treasury. Please contact any of the current or past board members

if you would like to throw your hat into the ring or would like to

find out more about any of the board positions.

The club will purchase one tent/canopy for use at the next

DE event. Charlie Davis has volunteered to act as “Interim

Equipment Chairman” and will begin the task of research and

and on the track, I forgot all about the heat and was totally

concentrating on the task at hand. Even after my run was over, I

didn’t begin to notice the heat until a good 15 or 20 minutes went

by, as I was still absorbed in the afterglow of my run, talking

about how I did, what I could have done better, and etc.

In the end, nobody who was there could argue it wasn’t hot,

but I guarantee very few, if any, would say that once they were out

there on the track that they didn’t forget all about the heat and

think only about how they were going to approach the next

turn. All in all, it was a great day and I am glad I was talked into

participating. I look forward to next one, no matter what

temperature it is outside.

“anal-yzing” the club’s needs for both storage and transportation

of equipment. If you are interested in helping please contact

Charlie Davis (chuxter@airmail.net).

PCA National will begin permitting 16 and 17 year old drivers

to participate in PCA events. There will be additional forms that

must be signed by both parents. If you have questions please

contact James Shoffit for more details.

Charlie Davis requested that the 914 Special Interest Group

(SIG) event in October to be run concurrent with the MRPCA

October “Run Whatcha Brung” autocross. The morning will

operate the same as the annual event and the SIG group will

autocross in the afternoon with 914 classes. Contact Charlie for

more info.

Maverick Region is planning a “Drivers Family Reunion”

August 25 in Mineral Wells. Look for the ad on page 3. Also,

Teri Davis reported on Round-Up in September and is taking

reservations and for accommodations. There is a full weekend of

activities including things to do for both the adults and

children. Contact Teri if you wish to attend or want to help out.

(See ad on page 9).

Meeting closed at 9:01. Remember, the monthly board

meetings have been moved to Thursday nights.

Maverick Region PCA board

meetings are held once a month.

The board meetings are open to all PCA members and your

suggestions and opinions are welcome . . .

Autocross #3

by Dean Yamada

75+ speed racers drove in on Sunday, June 3 for the third

Autocross Event held at a windy Standridge Stadium in

Carrollton, TX.

Many “Porsche Club Wannabee's” such as myself and several

friends showed up bright and early for yet another fun filled

autocross event with the Maverick Region Porsche Club. Albeit

we don't have our corral of Porsches, we were once again sincerely

greeted and treated as welcomed friends - something rarely seen

in specialized car clubs.

Although I don't know what a 996 is from a 930 or a VW

Bug from a 914, the large active participation of various Porsches

gives you a good hearty confirmation that Porsches are true race

ready cars with excellent balance and awesome braking abilities -

the perfect combination for testing your driver skill at these

relatively low speed and very safe autocross events.

The course was tight, but very straightforward - you had to

keep your eyes looking ahead, else you would miss your braking

zone, enter the turn too hot (or blind), and cook your front

wheels with no turning traction.

The old racers' adage, “Sometimes you need to go slow to go

fast” proved true on that sunny Sunday. I was able to shave 2

seconds off my worst time by slowing done to almost a crawl to

get through the tight turns - where previously my front tires

would squeal and scream to let me know they were over their

available traction limitations. (Instinctively I thought I was going

too slow for the turns, but looking at the actual lap times proved

that wrong) Excessive squeal = no acceleration = slow times and

this proved quite true once again. Smooth and boring to watch =

fast times. I decided to go for loud and aggressive - oh well, at

least I had a blast.

Mental note to myself: Get a bigger ice chest to hold more

bottled water! Encourage Club President to hold new Porsche

raffle and enter contest repeatedly. Rig contest if necessary.

Maverick Region Driver’s Education

by Carlo Malana

It was hot. Okay, it was very hot. Yet track temperature

aside, the Maverick Region Drivers Education (DE) event at

Motorsport Ranch held on June 23-24 was a very fun event,

with overwhelming participation from a lot of Maverick track

junkies (or track junkies-to-be). Since MSR, as the Ranch is

oftentimes referred to, is one of the closest racetracks to the

Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex, many Mavericks joined in on a

weekend of turns, apexes, passing signals, and good old race

track driving. There were also some friendly faces from Hill

Country and Lone Star regions, both students and instructors.

The primary objective of the Drivers Ed event is to present

a safe environment to better learn how to take advantage of

the superb German engineering within our cars. The day starts

out with a driver’s meeting where flags and safety protocols are

reviewed. Drivers go out for four 20-25 minute sessions per

day, grouped into 5 different run groups based on driving

experience. Instructors are required for the beginners and

novices (green and blue), while the more advanced students

are given the option to have an instructor ride shotgun.

As an instructor, the day flew by, as I hopped from car to

car, either as a passenger or as a driver, taking students for

instructional rides. Both of my students did excellently. My

Green group first-timer in a gorgeous white 930 slantnose

learned to drive a car that delivers power all at once, through

a tight twisty track, definitely enjoying the rare opportunities

where 16 pounds of boost pressure would catapult his Porsche

quickly through any of the longer straightaways. I’ve driven

many cars, but this one tops the list in terms of crazy acceleration

when the turbo boost gets a chance to build up.

My novice Blue Group student was a first-timer to

Motorsport Ranch, but had several DE’s on other tracks under

her belt. She was nervous initially, but soon looked very

comfortable muscling the I-mean-business 911 RS America

(no power steering) around the track at a very good speed.

I was definitely proud of the improvement that these two

drivers showed, and are two good examples on why I enjoy

instructing so much.

The Porsche Store, the event’s sponsor, also showed up in

style, staying out of the sun with an impressive canopy.

Represented by a collection of Boxsters, 944’s, and several

911’s (including John Gladwill’s 996-engined Boxster S), the

Porsche Store showed its support for the event with several

employees like John Hrad, Wayne Corley, and Rick Jordan

driving alongside their customers.

Mavericks now look forward to September, when the next

DE is scheduled. Hopefully, cooler weather will prevail,

but there is one thing that is sure to stay the same – it’ll be a

weekend of fun, fast driving in one of the most challenging,

technical racetracks in Texas.

Zone 5 Shoot Out

Excerpts from articles Vonnie Grether, Steve Olson, and Dan Taylor of Lone Star Region

The Zone 5 Shoot Out, which took place June 9th and 10th,

was a huge success. Shadow Canyon brought together the 40th

anniversary celebration that was truly Texas style with lots of BBQ,

beer, and all the wonderful people of the Zone 5 region. The event

included an Autocross organized by Joe "Retread" McGlohen,

which had a "shooting star" course layout that was a hoot. Later

that day many Autocrossers enjoyed a longer course at Texas World

Speedway for the famed Driver's Education sampler session.

Not one to be left out of the anniversary excitement, the

Concours committee put together an event that was held in the

"Cold Pits" of the Texas World Speedway. The occasional rain

sprinkles kept them scrambling to keep their cars in pristine form.

Jim Valenti of Maverick Region scored 395 points with his P6 Class

1992 Carrera and he also won the overall concours award. There's

was also a silent auction, which included a beautiful Marakesh Red

BMW R1100RSA motorcycle, raised $11,678 for Magnificat

House, a charity in Houston.

A HEARTY THANKS to all who helped out and special kudos

to Joe McGlohen of Maverick Region for making the Autocross

happen, Jan Mayo for her moral support and Lanean Hughes for

her generous assistance. YOU ARE THE BEST... We hope we have

started something for a continuing string of Zone 5 events hosted

on a rotating basis by the Zone 5 member regions.

Happy Hour at Sea Grill

by Tinker Edwards

The Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain (co-chair),

Tinker Edwards (chair) & Ben Witry (co-chair)

Sea Grill in north Dallas was the setting for the June 21st Happy Hour. Even

with a threatening sky we had another good turnout of more than 30 members.

You could've fooled me that Marc Thaler and Bonnie Powell were new

members at their first happy hour, they fit right in with the friendly group.

Prospective member Scott, who just purchased a '77 911, stopped by to get

some advice on tweaking his car. We met Mike Jones' daughter Kathleen and

Scott and Tricia Guenther, who frequent the monthly Tuesday lunches, came to

their first happy hour. Just about everyone stayed for dinner, which served us

some wonderful seafood. I recommend giving it a try!

Attention Midcities Members!

You've been asking for a happy hour in your area, so we

are coming your way. The August 16th happy hour will be at

Carrabba's Italian Grill in Grapevine! See page 3 for details.

Also, there is a SpeedZone happy hour in the works and

maybe something at Texas Motor Speedway.

Remember, members are always welcome to suggest a location

for an upcoming happy hour, but be prepared to set it up

with the establishment. That's the best part of planning a happy

hour. Contact myself, Ben or Dennis with your suggestion.

See you at Carrabba's!

Mark Campbell with Kelley Baughman.

TSD Rally Workshop

By Carey Spreen

Dateline Weatherford, Texas (MRPCA) -- This sleepy North

Texas town west of Ft. Worth was brutally awakened on Saturday,

June 16, when a marauding band of TSD (time-speed-distance)

Rally School students, led by their instructor, held the Texas

Pythian Home hostage for most of the afternoon. The small but

vocal group commandeered one of the libraries at this Texas

Historic Landmark and blockaded themselves in, discussing rally

tactics and strategy, as well as traps and tricks that they might

encounter in the Porsche Parade Rally, which was to be held less

than three weeks later. Authorities later determined that the

group was composed of members of the Maverick Region of the

Porsche Club of America, but by that time they had abandoned

their makeshift fortress and made away in their rally vehicles.

But this was just the beginning of Parker County's worst

nightmare since the clock stopped in the Weatherford Town Hall.

This reporter has learned that the leader of the entire incident, as

well as the group's instructor, had designed a "simple" TSD rally

for the students to cut their teeth on, and they did just that. The

rally route travelled little-known roads south and east of

Weatherford, cutting a swath of destruction all the way to tiny

Aledo, TX, where the rebels finally surrendered.

The details of this rampage have finally emerged. Teri Davis,

Maverick Region's Rally Chairperson, set up the TSD Rally

School for Parade Rally hopefuls, and anyone else interested in

honing their rally skills. Four students were up to the task: rally

neophytes Karen and Eric Erz, who were to attend the Parade in

July; journeyman rallyist Carey Spreen, who had been rallying

off-and-on with various PCA regions since 1980, and had put on

his first one just last year; and grizzled rally veteran Joe

McGlohen, who had been putting on rallies himself since--well,

let's say his first sortie as a Rallymeister was well before there was

any such thing as a water-cooled Porsche. Karen navigated for

Eric in the Novice class, driving their recently-acquired Turbo-

Look 911 Targa, while Joe navigated for Carey in the Experienced

class, driving Joe's battle-hardened Stealth Suburban.

The rally started off well, with both sets of contestants

holding their own in each class, until they encountered the first

Manned Route Control, at which point disaster struck. Due to an

ill-fated misprint in the Special Instructions handed out at the

MRC by James and Wendy Shoffit (for which they were later

exonerated), both sets of contestants got off course, and for what

seemed like lots and lots of minutes, wandered aimlessly though

the wilds of southern Parker County.

It was finally through sheer perseverance, and a bit of luck,

that the teams of Spreen/McGlohen and Erz/Erz got back on

course and made it to the Underwood Road timing control,

exhausted but ready to continue. The second leg was a breeze by

comparison, and ended without further incident at Aledo's

leading burger bar for the awards ceremony. All contestants left

with trophies that fateful day: very pretty (and useful) glass bowls

with the PCA logo affixed to the bottom.

All involved in the incident have been released on their own

recognizance, after it was determined that they learned at least

two very valuable lessons: (1) everyone makes mistakes, even

experienced rallyists; and (2) no matter how many rallies you

have participated in, whether as competitor, worker, or

Rallymeister, you always learn something new.

But seriously, folks, it was a good time and, like I said, everybody

learned something. Many thanks to Teri Davis and her lovely

husband Charlie for putting on the school, and thanks to the

workers and participants that made it a success.

Last minute tips before we get started.

James Shoffit, and Eric Erz

Father’s Day Picnic

By Mimi Spreen

The 13th annual Father's Day Picnic at the lovely home of

Dave and Doris Casey was jam packed with good food, good fun,

great cars and of course, great people. As the RSVP's slowly came

in, I wasn't sure we'd reach 50, but surprise, surprise, surprise, we

had 73 actual RSVP's. Good thing the Casey's have the room to

accommodate that many people, plus the 16 cars entered for the

concours.

Charlie Davis graciously volunteered to head up the concours

and he divided the cars into 2 groups. The Blue Class and the

Prestigious Orange Class. He had a very secretive and highly

technical method for this, but he wouldn't divulge it. The results

are as follows:

The Blue Class

1st, with 12 votes, Richard Cross, Red 1964 356 Coupe

2nd, with 11 votes, Michelle DeJong, Tangerine 1974 911T Coupe

3rd, with 10 votes, Fred Pretzer, Red 1965 356 Cab

Relaxing by the pool.

The great water balloon toss.

Richard Cross and friend by his 1st place 356 Coupe.

The Orange Class

1st, with 13 votes, Hiram Saunders, Red 1995 993 Cab

2nd, with 11 votes, (tie) Chuck Blum, Silver 1994 928

2nd, with 11 votes, (tie) Ed Mayo, Metallic Green 1971 911T

The Saunders and their 1st place 993 Cab.

My personal favorite was the very beautiful Silver 1994 928

GTS and Chuck even let me sit in the car. It was all I could do to

not start it up and take it for a spin!! All the other cars were

beautiful as well, but I have a huge soft spot for 928 GTSs, especially

when it's a five speed. Thanx Chuck!

Wendy Shoffit headed up the games for the little ones and

some of the big ones too. We started with a water balloon toss

which was great fun. Mike DeJong and his daughter Emily were

partners and both did very well, until Mike threw the ball to

Emily and she couldn't catch it. I was standing next to her and

saw her bottom lip start to tremble, so I said, "that's ok" and she

looked up at me with tears in her eyes and said "I couldn't reach

it" I just wanted to hug her, but of course she ran to her Daddy

in tears. Maybe next year Emily! The winners, for the second year

in a row, were Joey and Jodi Berdis. I think someone else should

pick out their balloon for next year!

Hopefully the Casey's will be willing to host this event next

year, but if not, maybe some of the other members with a pool

and enough room to accommodate approximately 80 people, will

step up and volunteer. I know I look forward every year to this

event.

Thanks Dave and Doris for a wonderful time.

Tires, Brakes, Wheels And Things That Go

Bump In The Night At The Race Track…

By Keith Olcha

So an instructor, who shall remain nameless, spins out at

Motorsport Ranch in the June Drivers Education event. He

comes in to the black flag station and we chat. Later in the day he

come up to me and says: "Good news. I know why I spun. My

right rear tire had 51 pounds of air pressure in it!" Well that's just

dandy. The tire is rated for a maximum of 44 pounds, and in a

911 of that particular weight, he should have had about 41

pounds hot in the rear tires after a run session. Another instructor,

who also shall remain nameless, corded two Hoosier DOT racing

tires by running them under-inflated for two run sessions. You’d

think instructors would know better. Well, they did once, and

then they got lazy. Fortunately nothing happened with either

driver or their cars, but it never hurts to review safety items again.

Let's remember three very important areas of safety:

1) Proper tire inflation, tread surface wear, and lug nut torque

2) Brake fluid level, cleanliness, and air-bleeding

3) Brake pad and rotor wear.

Safety belts, seats, and airbags work after you get into trouble.

The three items above, when properly maintained, keep you out

of trouble. The four tires on your car, and the palm-sized contact

patch they maintain with the ground is all that connects your car

to the track. It's not a relationship to abuse. Let's start with item

number one above- the tires. Tires are filled with air, and it's this

air which maintains the tires structure and conformity to the

road. The tread contact patch rubber creates friction against the

road surface that allows acceleration, braking, and turning to

occur. Air pressure varies greatly with outside temperature and

heat generated from the friction. You should check your tire

pressure at least twice per day, once first thing in the morning,

and again after lunch.

Street tires generally should have 2-3 pounds more than the

factory pressure when cold before a run session under the theory

that they need to be stiff to avoid rolling over on their edges, and

that they will increase 4-6 PSI during a 25 minute run session.

Keith Olcha and his RS America.

However, if the rear factory recommendation plus 2-3 pounds

would exceed the maximum inflation (found by reading the tire

sidewall) don't add air to the rear tires. Also, most manufacturers

recommend high under steer-inducing pressure differentials

between front and rear tires. A good example is my Boxster. The

factory pressure is 29 Front, and 36 rear. On the track, that would

have the rear about 42 pounds in hot weather after a 25-30

minute run session.

I, along with others, have found that with street tires starting

at front 32 pounds (3 lbs over as mentioned above) and rears at

about 34 PSI works very well with minimal sidewall rollover and

decreases under steer.

With DOT track-tires such as Kumhos, Hoosiers, and

Yokohamas, those manufacturers have specific pressure recommendations

that can be found on their websites, or The Tire

Rack's website. For example on a 911- a Kumho V700 Victoracer

should be 1 pound for every 100 lbs in the front and 2 pounds

more in the rear. So if your 911 is 3000 pounds, a cold inflation

starting recommendation is 30 pounds in each front tire and 32

pounds in the rear. Kumhos like a hot maximum pressure of

36-39 pounds. So depending upon your driving style, the track,

and outside temperature in that same 911 above, you might start

28 F 30 R or 32 F 34 R for the desired outcome—but not 51 pounds!

Lug nuts should be torqued to 90 lb-ft. There's no need to

discuss why tires need to stay on the car, is there? And what about

the second item, brake fluid? Brake fluid is the hydraulic fluid

that converts foot pedal pressure through vacuum assist (in most

all newer street cars) into caliper and drum pad pressure so the

rotors/drums slow down. Where does all that momentum or

movement of the wheel turning go? It turns into heat and goes

into the air, the rotor, the tire, wheels, and the brake calipers.

After several minutes of heat, it is easy to boil the accumulated

moisture (water boils 212 degrees) that has been absorbed by the

brake fluid in the caliper. Once that happens the resulting boiled

water yields air bubbles, which creates space and thus the dreaded

"soft, ineffective" brake pedal. The only solution is to brake

less and let the brakes cool down and "bleed" off the air-bubbled

fluid in the calipers. How do you keep your brake fluid fresh so

that doesn't happen? Bleed the brakes twice per year with fresh

fluid and keep your master-cylinder topped up with fresh fluid.

What about brake pads and rotors? You can use up an entire

set of pads in one weekend DE at a track. Always start with more

than _ pad material remaining. Change your rotors every 2-3 sets

of pads, or better yet—measure them for acceptable remaining

thickness. Porsche has very clear specs for that. On some rotors,

it's stamped right on the rotor.

So check your car over after every run session, for tire cuts

and abrasions. Brake fluid and pad wear twice per day, and

inflation pressures twice or three times per day. And have fun.

By the time you read this we will be accepting registration forms

for our September Drivers ED at Motorsport Ranch.

Hope Happenings

By Lanean Hughes

Last month was a busy time for deliveries to Hope. Thanks

to John Garcia & Bill Kasdorf for helping to take two truck loads

to the shelter. On the way, we stopped at The Porsche Store (see

pic), which was a great place for Barney Barnes to transfer a

washing machine to John’s truck. The Porsche Store has always

been very helpful to us and has offered us many services. We really

appreciate the friendly folks there.

A special thank you goes out to those members who are calling

and making the trip to the shelter on their own. The staff so

appreciates your donations, and the opportunity to thank you

personally. Keep up the good work Mavericks!

At the Mineral Wells Reunion Event (TT#5 & AX#5), being

held the weekend of August 25 & 26, our friends and families at

the Hope Shelter will provide us with a Picnic Dinner on

Saturday evening the 25th at the track. They are excited to have

an opportunity to say thank you to the many Mavericks and their

friends for the support given to them. Look for the ad on page 3,

and let us know if you are coming. Hope to see you in “Hot

Mineral Wells, Texas”. Remember you pass through Cool, Texas

before arriving, that should lower your temperature some!

How To Get Involved In YOUR Club

by Wendy Shoffit

I assume if you’re reading this article, you

want to get involved. There’s only one way to

begin – show up. You can choose to come to

scheduled fun events or you can dive right in

to the board meetings. These meetings are

held monthly, with dinner and drinks provided.

Dates and location are listed in Slipstream

and on our webpage (www.pca.org/mav).

Board meetings are always open to all members – just show up

and join in the discussion. You will be welcome.

One of the most important things to do when wanting to

help in any organization is to first WATCH and LISTEN. See

what people are doing. Hear why they are taking that particular

approach. If you see something you would like to help with,

offer to help them in a way they would like you to. THEN you

can make educated, helpful suggestions if a change is needed.

Communication is the key.

If you are someone who has come out to an event, helped

do some of the “grunt” work, and THEN made suggestions,

your opinions will be significantly more credible and your

suggestions will be taken more seriously. Educate yourself

about the process before you look to revamp it. There is usually

(but not always) a perfectly logical reason why something

is being done the way it is.

If you offer your help and the organizer politely says,

“Well, there’s really not much you can do right now.

Everything is taken care of,” don’t despair. You have probably

come into the process a bit late and everything has already

been delegated. It’s nothing personal. At that point, offer your

help for the NEXT event and make sure early on that the event

chairman knows you are available. Please don’t assume that

since you said, “Sure, I’ll help” four weeks/months/years ago

that he or she will remember to call on you.

Make your presence known and re-affirm your commitment

to volunteer your time, services, or other resources. If

you don’t know whom to contact to volunteer, just call one of

the board members listed on page 4 of every Slipstream. If

he/she doesn’t know, you will eventually be directed to someone

who does know. As a final resort, you can volunteer to the

current President (James Shoffit). He is the one who makes

appointments to particular committees. Be consistent and be

visible. Let us know your talents and we will hopefully put

them to work!

Finally, when the time comes (and it may be immediate)

for you to help out, please be there. If you say you will do

something, do it. Be someone who can be counted on and you

will be treasured. MRPCA is run solely on volunteers. Not a

single person is paid for their time or energy. Without people

like you to become one of the “doers” by giving of yourself, we

would be nowhere. Please make the choice to volunteer and

let’s give some of the people who have been doing this for years

a little chance to rest. They deserve it!
