Prez Says<br />

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President<br />

Founders’ Day is finally over, and most of the<br />

trophies and awards were presented. If you<br />

weren’t there to receive your of the driving<br />

award, contact Cody Sears or Bill Dugan to find out<br />

how you can get your award. SouthFork Ranch was<br />

a great place to have our annual event, and the staff<br />

and food were wonderful. Tricia Guenther arranged<br />

for us to have entertainment while eating – we were<br />

treated to a fabulous dance program by Jazz Express!<br />

Thanks to everyone who made that event possible, and so much fun!<br />

Earlier that same day we had a Charity Autocross with one of the<br />

. . . don’t think Ed wants me to remind<br />

anyone of the results . . .<br />

Autocross, and even more from the silent auction and “Angel Tree” at<br />

our Founders’ Day event.<br />

Since this is my last President’s article, I just wanted to take the<br />

time to thank you all for allowing me the privilege of being President.<br />

It really meant a lot to me, and I truly enjoyed it. So, THANKS!<br />

The annual Holiday Party will be hosted by Alan and Kay Leibel<br />

this year, who have graciously offered up their home for the club! This<br />

will be on <strong>December</strong> 7th; see page 3 for all the details. Come on out,<br />

and join the fun<br />

best turnouts of the year. We even had a loaned Boxster from<br />

Boardwalk Porsche for our own IROC series, where four of our newer<br />

pilots each took turns with the same car to see who could take home<br />

the bragging rights. None other than Bill Miller – who normally<br />

drives a 911 – beat out the other Boxster owners by a nice margin!<br />

Bill just recently recovered from a broken wrist, so it was impressive<br />

to see him do so well. Last time I saw someone recover so well from a<br />

broken wrist was when Jan Mayo went to Parade and drove for the<br />

first time this year, and well … I don’t think Ed wants me to remind<br />

anyone of the results there!<br />

We raised a tidy sum for the Hope Shelter from the Charity<br />

Because I Said So<br />

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor<br />

So here it is, my final article (again). James<br />

said that his last one was the easiest to<br />

write. Unfortunately, mine doesn’t seem to<br />

be flowing as naturally as his did.<br />

I want to thank all the people who have<br />

taken their valuable time to write articles for me<br />

during my tenure as editor. I understand the<br />

sacrifices that it takes to fulfill commitments and<br />

truly appreciate every one that has been made to make this<br />

newsletter as great as it is. It has been a lot of work, but very<br />

rewarding. I know that you all appreciate receiving it every month,<br />

even if it *is* “late” sometimes.<br />

I have no doubt that many of you will not shy away from<br />

helping Matt Platts as he takes on the editorship next month.<br />

He has a lot of great ideas that he will be steadily working to<br />

implement as the year progresses.<br />

As Matt gets accustomed to the process of doing the<br />

newsletter, I would like for you all to be a little patient. Most of you<br />

don’t know what sort of timing is involved in putting this<br />

publication together. Unfortunately, the date that the editor<br />

finishes her/his work (assuming that all the articles, ads, etc. are in<br />

on time) is NOT the same as when it gets mailed to you. It takes<br />

between 1-2 weeks AFTER we send it to the print shop to get it<br />

ready for press, printed, stapled, labeled, and mailed. Then, once it<br />

gets mailed...it’s up to the United States Postal Service to deliver<br />

the goods. We have no control over that timing. So, the next time<br />

it is “late” getting to your mailbox, think about this entire process<br />

before you automatically think that it’s the editor’s fault. Like I<br />

said... it’s a process.<br />

That being said, I’m sure you all have become accustomed to<br />

my rantings and ravings by now. I’m not certain what happened<br />

to me this year to make me so opinionated. Oh...wait...I guess I<br />

was born and raised that way (thanks, Mom!). I think maybe it<br />

just came out a little more in print this year. I apologize if I have<br />

offended anyone or rubbed you the wrong way (a.k.a. the way I<br />

did not originally intend). My mother was a very strong minded<br />

and opinionated woman and taught me to be the same. I would<br />

do her and myself an injustice if I were to behave in any other way.<br />

So, I guess now the only way for you to hear my opinion on<br />

something is to hear me rant and rave in person! While James and<br />

I will be taking a small step back from the daily activities of the<br />

club, we are certainly not going anywhere. In between my helping<br />

Matt in the beginning as editor, being registrar for the Club Race,<br />

Autocrosses, and Time Trials, and helping organize the Fort Worth<br />

Parade in 2004, I’m hoping to rest a little here and there.<br />

I am definitely looking forward to a year of “resting” and<br />

attending events like Tinker says, “as a member at large.” I look<br />

forward to seeing you all at an event soon. Maybe it’ll even be at<br />

the “Parade for Dummies” event in January. See you soon!<br />

Maverick Minutes<br />

by Andy Mears, Secretary<br />

Maverick Region’s monthly board<br />

meeting was held on November 6 in<br />

Irving, TX at the home of James and<br />

Wendy Shoffit. The meeting was called to order<br />

at 7:00 PM.<br />

Charlie Davis wanted everyone to carefully<br />

consider each of the items on the PCA national<br />

by-laws changes ballot. Many of the items are<br />

intended to clarify the terms and words that describe and<br />

define PCA.<br />

Dennis Chamberlain gave an update on the last Happy<br />

Hour at Sea Grill and the great turnout and, to remind<br />

everyone of the upcoming Happy Hour locations; look for ad<br />

in <strong>Slipstream</strong>.<br />

Bill Dugan announced that Mark Steele has agreed to be<br />

TimeTrial Chair next year.<br />

Lanean Hughes wanted to let everyone know that this<br />

year’s “Angel Tree” donations for Hope Shelter will include<br />

time/work donations to help work at the Hope Shelter. An<br />

example of a work donation includes basic building repairs.<br />

She also updated the board on the status for next year’s DE<br />

sponsors. And she mentioned that she got Boardwalk Porsche<br />

to loan a car for the Charity Autocross.<br />

Eric Erz reported that the expected attendance for Founders<br />

Day would be 95 with room for a few more.<br />

Cody Sears reported on the results of AX #6.<br />

<strong>December</strong>’s board meeting will be on the 11th. Meeting<br />

was closed at 8: PM<br />

Happy Hour at Sea Grill<br />

by John Hamilton, First Time Happy Hour Attendee<br />

If you missed our October 17th<br />

happy hour at the Sea Grill in<br />

Dallas, you missed a terrific<br />

get-together! Over sixty people<br />

showed up with their Porsches to<br />

share stories, make plans, and meet<br />

friends: old and new.<br />

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,<br />

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck<br />

Since everyone gets a nametag,<br />

it’s easy to get into conversation<br />

with some interesting people who you may not have met<br />

before. Of course, much of the conversation revolved around<br />

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain<br />

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain<br />

Chris & John Hamilton in their 993.<br />

Frank and Bobbie Briggs<br />

our Porsches and our experiences with them: road-trips,<br />

rallies, autocrosses, and the story of how you acquired your<br />

current “baby.” And every once in a while, we even strayed<br />

from the topic of cars (but avoided the topic of work like the<br />

plague)!<br />

...avoided the topic ofwork like the<br />

plague . . .<br />

The conversation was so interesting that over 40 of us<br />

stayed to enjoy the great seafood at the restaurant. And the<br />

restaurant was so very accommodating: they blocked off their<br />

front row of parking so we could have all our Porsche’s lined<br />

up in a row! Dennis Chamberlain caught some great photos of<br />

the great selection of Porsches: old, new, Boxsters, 968’s, 911’s<br />

and at least one Turbo, that lined the parking lot.<br />

So if you missed this one, you missed one good time. But<br />

here’s the good news: more events are coming in the near<br />

future. So check out our calendar of events; watch your<br />

e-mails, and even if it’s a last-minute decision, plan on making<br />

our next happy hour. A great time is a sure thing!<br />

Park Place Tech Session -993 C4S 30K Inspection<br />

by Kay Leibel<br />

Since this was the August Tech Session, I delivered my car,<br />

a/k/a Big Boy, to Park Place Porsche the day before so they could<br />

get it prepped for the Saturday session. The intent was to show<br />

some of the highlights of the inspection and wrap it up by<br />

noon, when it really started to heat up in the work bay.<br />

We started the morning with a continental breakfast and<br />

then Jimmy Hays got our attention and the session began. With<br />

about 18 in attendance at various stages during the morning –<br />

including one of our Ft. Worth members, there was lots of discussion<br />

about various aspects of the car, including tires, spark<br />

plugs and the wonderful placement of that last one, seals, headlights<br />

– after seeing that it is one big unit, now I know why they<br />

are so expensive, as well as minor things like fuses. In addition<br />

to my car, they had three other C4’s in varying stages up on lifts,<br />

so we had the chance to go from car to car looking at different<br />

points for comparison.<br />

“...feeling confident about the 30k inspection<br />

and knowing more about my car...”<br />

the fender scrap repaired and it looks as good as new.<br />

Since Park Place was going to have the car well into the<br />

following week for the warranty work, they loaned me a Boxster<br />

to drive. It was a fun week, needless to say, tooling around town<br />

in the Boxster. I picked up Big Boy at the end of the week<br />

and went on my way, feeling confident about the 30K inspection<br />

and knowing more about my car. I want to thank Park Place<br />

Porsche for hosting the event and making us more knowledgeable<br />

about our cars.<br />

In addition to the inspection, the technician found a couple<br />

of items needing repair, which ended up being covered by my<br />

extended warranty. Thank goodness for extended warranties!<br />

While it was spending the week at Park Place Porsche, I also had<br />

Leadfoot Reunion Time Trial #5 and #6<br />

By Embittered Outgoing Editor<br />

We had our final Time Trials #5 & #6 on October 5-6. It was<br />

also our Leadfoot Reunion weekend. We all had a great<br />

time. This article would be longer, but the person who<br />

agreed at the event to write it…didn’t. So, all you get are photos and<br />

results. Enjoy!<br />

. . . had a great time . . .<br />

Oh, and hopefully the next time you say you’ll do<br />

something, please do it or everyone else might have to suffer the<br />

consequences.<br />

Hallett Club Racing School<br />

By Doug Molny<br />

Photo by Doug Molny<br />

Day 1<br />

Filled with anticipation and excitement we headed for the club<br />

race in Oklahoma October 10. The four of us, all neophytes,<br />

caravanned together. The ride from Dallas to Hallett was<br />

longer than expected due to many construction delays...we<br />

conversed via walkie talkie to pass the time, Noby Takahashi, Rocky<br />

Johnson, Jorge Vargas and myself. We'd read about and researched<br />

the track as this was to be our initiation into Club Racing.<br />

We arrived at the track late Thursday afternoon around 4:30.<br />

Promptly found our race port and pulled in. Hallett is a 1.8 mile<br />

10 turn asphalt road racing track with 80' elevation changes.<br />

Immediately after unloading, the race school participants were<br />

told to check in and attend a 2-hour race school orientation<br />

...the occasional turtle on the track . . .<br />

meeting at the control tower. We were given a long list of subjects<br />

to be covered in the 3-days, and we each received the newest copy<br />

of Skip Barber's book on racing. Our instructor, John Bolcha,<br />

started with a video presentation of the best line at speed around<br />

the track and then broke down each corner. I counted about 35<br />

people in the classroom, we were each assigned an instructor<br />

strictly for advice and pointers, as the instructors were not<br />

allowed in the car at anytime.<br />

Spectacular site on track...is that “The Bitch?”<br />

We discussed the topics to be covered including, turn-in,<br />

track out points, flag stations, pit entry, exit, proper gearing,<br />

different track surfaces, tire grip, passing lines inside and outside<br />

of the school line, and the occasional turtle on the track. The<br />

average times for Hallett are in the mid-1:30's running counterclockwise<br />

with the fastest Porsches around 1:21. We talked about<br />

escape routes, run-off areas, double apex, driving off line and the<br />

art of passing anywhere you can get by safely, co-existing with<br />

other drivers and who owns the corner. We were told how to drive<br />

effectively, staying away from driving on the "ragged edge" which<br />

I should have interpreted as "how to finish the race without<br />

breaking your car!" I will be quoting from some of the material<br />

we were provided with the credits at the end of this article and<br />

book recommendations.<br />

Doug’s car was happy in its covered carport.<br />

Day 2<br />

Began at 8:00 AM in the classroom. We opened with one of<br />

racing's most important issues the "concept of predictability"!<br />

Then onto the race track, the 11 race students started out on the<br />

grid with a dozen laps of "lead follow" around the track. Since<br />

instructors may not be a passenger in the car this was the next<br />

best way to learn the "ideal line" as most of us were unfamiliar<br />

with this track. As we followed John around the track, the car<br />

directly behind John would drop to the rear as we finished 1 full<br />

lap so that each of us had a run in the front. We returned to the<br />

classroom and talked about how important is was to keep the<br />

RPM's up during the race and shifting at red-line.<br />

An important rule in Club Racing is learning to be "assertive<br />

not aggressive" as we progressed into talking about draft passing,<br />

trail and threshold braking. Many factors come into play when<br />

coming into a corner, making a conscious effort to ease off the<br />

brakes while turning, and then being smooth back onto the<br />

gas. Tire slip, the traction circle and line recovery made for an<br />

excellent topic as getting back onto the ideal line which is very<br />

important after a pass. During a PCA Club Race "blocking" is not<br />

permitted although you are not expected to give up your position<br />

easily. We concluded the morning class by setting up a well<br />

formed grid and practiced side by side starts. This was fun! We<br />

gained a great deal of knowledge, the right gear to start in, which<br />

in my car is 2nd and when to shift and how to position yourself<br />

for the first turn and find the most advantageous line while in a<br />

battle for position into turn one.<br />

After lunch we talked about "PCA style" racing, the main<br />

thrust on how to pass and how to be passed. John Bolcha and<br />

Bryan Henderson discussed 4-types of passes, 1. Under braking,<br />

2. horsepower pass 3. draft pass 4. passing due to another's racer's<br />

mistake. Racing is a mental activity and learning to plan your pass<br />

makes for good sense racing. It was suggested that we practice<br />

passing during the rest of the practice sessions. We were all so<br />

interested in this information that the time seemed to really go by<br />

quickly, so many light bulbs went off in our brains we felt<br />

like neon signs. Most importantly we learned that it is the<br />

responsibility of the overtaking car to make a clean pass. The car<br />

ahead at the turn-in point has the corner! This is where you cannot<br />

make a mistake going into a corner side by side. We then were let<br />

loose on the track with the approval to pass anywhere during the<br />

rest of our practice session. This was an excellent adventure: Club<br />

Racing was quickly becoming my newest passion. They would<br />

have to chain me to the grandstands to keep me away!<br />

The students were eager to learn from the pros.<br />

Day 3<br />

We worked all morning on finding the best line, passing<br />

in corners, draft passing, and working towards the upcoming<br />

qualifying laps for the enduro. I stopped by the scales prior to<br />

qualifying and found that I was about 80 pounds under weight so<br />

I rushed back to the race-port and asked for help. Keith, Bryan,<br />

Jorge jabbered in along with Joe and added a 50 pound weight at<br />

the sub-bolt hole for the seat belt at the passenger side and I<br />

borrowed Bryan's spare tire and mounted it under the hood.<br />

Filled the gas tank to the brim and made sure we were as close to<br />

the necessary weight as possible. We were given about 2-laps to<br />

warm-up and then approximately 4-laps to qualify, the best of<br />

which counted towards our starting position in the enduro. The<br />

rookies were started in the back of the pack. For qualifying our<br />

instructors have told us to be smooth, use our brains, find our<br />

turn in points, apex and track out marks use a 360 degree view<br />

at all times. Drive the line when possible and find clear air, if<br />

necessary pull over and let traffic go by so that we can get a clean<br />

qualifying run.<br />

Mavericks were there in force.<br />

Photo by Lanean Hughes<br />

I had decided to ask Keith Olcha to co-drive with me since he<br />

had a broken rotor and was not able to find a replacement before<br />

the start of the races. I felt comfortable during qualifying and felt<br />

like I had run some good laps, I believe that both Keith and I were<br />

close as far as our times were concerned. But when Keith drove<br />

into the hot pits he was pulled over into the scales for weighing.<br />

Thanks goodness we were 6 pounds over. I was really sweating it.<br />

At least we did not start at the very back of the pack qualifying<br />

35th out of 41 cars. After the sprint races we prepared our pit<br />

strategy and went back to the race-port for pre-race preparation<br />

and dinner in the registration tent. Steaks and chicken were<br />

cooked out on a large grill with lot's of extras, Halloween candy,<br />

and free beer. The Cimmaron Region had a raffle and a grand<br />

time was had by all.<br />

Day 4<br />

We lined up with the rookies in the very back and I must<br />

admit my heart was pumping enough blood for 3-people. I could<br />

not believe that we were to have a rolling start with 41 cars at the<br />

same time! We did and it was very cool, I was really having the<br />

time of my life. I got off ok and passed a couple of cars, around<br />

the 5th lap I passed 2-F class cars and the smile on my face<br />

was huge. The 6th lap I was passed by the GT cars blowing by<br />

everyone and they squeezed by me in turn 10. As I was heading<br />

into the straight I missed a shift and went from 2nd to 5th, as I<br />

was being passed because I had no power I was rooting around<br />

for a gear and trying to stay up with the 2 cars I just had passed,<br />

I ended up in 4th and mis-shifted again trying to get 3rd for turn<br />

one and unfortunately I believe that 1st was the gear I found<br />

Hey...how did Eric Erz get the pole position?<br />

and the transmission literally blew up! That being the end of the<br />

weekend for me I watched the rest of the race from the other side<br />

of the tire wall between turn 2 and 3, this turned out to be the best<br />

seat in the house. That was certainly a different perspective!<br />

Anyway after the race was completed I accomplished another<br />

first which was being towed back to the race port.<br />

As I reflect on the whole experience there was not a minute<br />

I would take back, except for the transmission, as it was the best<br />

time yet in the 2 years as a member of PCA. The race school<br />

was a success and if you get the chance to attend the next one I<br />

highly recommend it. The book we used was "Going Faster" by<br />

Skip Barber and the recommended reading list was "Winning"<br />

A Race Drivers Handbook by George Anderson and 2 books by<br />

Robert Bently "Drive to Win" and "The Technique of Motor<br />

Racing".<br />

Autocross #6<br />

by Lisa Steele<br />

Considering this was the last official autocross of the season<br />

and we just bought new tires, I wasn’t going to miss this one.<br />

However, I guess this was not the mindset of others because<br />

we only had 13 people show up to the “you never know what<br />

the weather will be like” Mineral Ring. I’m not sure if lack of<br />

attendance was due to weather or people forgetting that we were<br />

actually having an Autocross on a Saturday.<br />

When Mark and I drove up, I quickly realized that I was<br />

going to be the only lady driver not to mention that I was the<br />

ONLY female of the group. Before I could even get out of the car,<br />

I was told, “This is a Chick Free Zone.” Well, this “chick” did not<br />

crumble because I had two things going my way. First, I knew I<br />

would have Top Time of Day - Ladies (I know this is not much of<br />

So this is it...the entire group?<br />

Cody Sears demonstrating (im?)proper flagging<br />

techniques at the driver’s meeting<br />

a challenge but I’ll take what I can get). Second, I knew I would<br />

be assigning worker positions very quickly and with only six to<br />

seven people in a run group, some people would have “multiple<br />

positions” to cover.<br />

The course was well planned by Cody. He designed a very<br />

open, not too technical, and rain friendly (just in case) course. He<br />

also held a very unique Driver’s Meeting in the back of his truck<br />

while driving (not walking) the course. Who needs a map when<br />

you have a truck?!? The people in the back reminded him that it<br />

The Top Time of Day “Team Steele”<br />

would be a good idea not to take the course at speed. My job<br />

of assigning worker positions was actually very simple…. one<br />

person to each of the three corners, one person timing, and one<br />

person running grid. I believe the comment was made that this<br />

was the smallest group for an Autocross in Maverick history. We<br />

had a Blast!! We did two sets of five runs, about thirty minutes of<br />

...a Chick Free Zone ...<br />

fun runs, picked up all pylons, and loaded up our cars and were<br />

finished by approximately 11:30am. What a fine day of racing!<br />

And NO rain to top it all off! Okay, I can’t end this article<br />

without mentioning that Mark “the Man of Steele” and Lisa’s<br />

husband had his First Top Time of Day. Therefore, it was a Steele<br />

TTD Autocross. What a way to end the season.<br />

MUSR #4 (Mid US Ramble)<br />

By Charlie Davis<br />

Iknow that MUSR #4 was not strictly a Maverick Region event, nor<br />

was it sponsored by MR. But several MR members attended it, so I<br />

guess it’s relevant. We renamed it the Mid US RainRamble<br />

(MUSRR), because of light rain for 4 days. The nice weather we<br />

ordered showed up Sunday afternoon and really came out in force on<br />

Monday...lasted all week. Darn!<br />

This year, we met in beautiful SE Oklahoma. This part of the<br />

state has some of the bets Porsche roads anywhere. For example State<br />

routes 1 and 2. We explored both of them. We stayed at the Kerr<br />

Mansion south of Poteau for 2 days, then rambled over to the Belle<br />

Starr Lodge at Robbers Cave. Both were wonderful locations! I’m<br />

thinking about organizing a MR tour next year and using these<br />

venues. Ted? You listening?<br />

The cars wait as we explore the Robbers Cave.<br />

party. About half came in uniform. No tricks...just treats. We may do<br />

this again, in spite of the interesting costume worn by Joe Yoder. He<br />

wore part of his costume all weekend. I think he was trying for the<br />

Dave Darling look—pony tail and all!<br />

A couple of entrants went back and actually found the<br />

Runestones the next morning. The effect would have been better on<br />

Halloween night in the dark!<br />

The seminars were WONDERFUL!!! Jon Lowe’s session about<br />

the “Evolution of the 914” was superb. He presented a few pictures<br />

nobody had ever seen before, plus we learned a lot about how and<br />

why the 914 came to be. Most importantly, we learned how lucky we<br />

are that some of the proposed designs never made it to production!<br />

Dave Darling’s talk about “Suspension 101” was equally well<br />

attended and generated lots of good discussion, including arguments<br />

about the best setup. But the panel discussion about “Why would<br />

you ever want to become a CW”...well, it was actually called, “How<br />

and Why to Prepare Your Car for Concours, was the best of all. The<br />

climax of this seminar was when Jean Yoder (a retired physician and<br />

1st time MUSR attendee) stood up (everybody else just asked<br />

questions sitting down) and announced that she had found a new<br />

career. She now understands Joe better and knows that we are all<br />

terribly sick. Even has a clue what is wrong with us and thinks she<br />

can help us. Next year, after going back for a psych refresher, she will<br />

conduct group therapy. She doesn’t understand that we are in denial<br />

and don’t WANT to be cured...<br />

Photo by Bill Dugan and Wendy Shoffit<br />

While the weather didn’t cause anything to be canceled,<br />

it did encourage us to spend more time indoors and talk. We<br />

bonded a lot...<br />

We had 55+ people and 25+ cars this year, down somewhat<br />

from previous years. We have a little bit of money left, which will be<br />

used next year. That’s the way we planned it.<br />

Can you believe that my navigator didn’t see the sign to the<br />

Runestones and we drove around for hours in the dark, leading a<br />

P-train? Everyone else saw the sign but didn’t say diddly. Later in the<br />

event, they gave me a WONDERFUL “Crimson Shaft” award that<br />

Lawrence “Rusty” Bonkoski made, for devotion to duty beyond all<br />

reason or the biggest screw up or something. Oh joy...<br />

After the futile search for the Runestones, we had a Halloween<br />

Who would have thought you could find this scenery in Oklahoma?<br />

Photo by Bill Dugan and Wendy Shoffit<br />

Smiles all around at the Cave.<br />

Everyone agreed that Jean is a saint to put up with Joe and his<br />

obsession with old German sports cars. This weekend, she saw that<br />

Joe is not alone in his obsession. She liked MUSR 4 and plans to<br />

return...plus, she has work to do. Actually, I think she liked us and<br />

starting to get an obsession?<br />

The Winding Stair Mountains were fogged in. Bummer! The<br />

fox didn’t like the fog either. Neither of us saw the other until too late.<br />

Oh, yes...Al Swanson collected the “Deerslayer” award this year, but<br />

not in the fog on the Mountain. It’s been 2 years since the last one<br />

was awarded. The car was drivable. The deer wasn’t.<br />

We had the Concours in the rain. Went like this: Each car was<br />

driven under the portico in front of the Kerr Mansion and the<br />

peanut gallery inside the lobby (where it was warm and dry) would<br />

clap and assign a score. Teri would write them down. Then the next<br />

22


car would drive up. Actually, we did it the old fashioned way, but if<br />

there had been a portico...<br />

John Swanson ended Rich Johnson’s monopoly and took home<br />

the “Peoples Choice” award, the Hildreth Trophy. The new this year<br />

“Elegance” award went to Charles Stephens from New Ulm, MN. He<br />

also was awarded the Long Distance Award...about 750 miles each<br />

way.<br />

The rain ruined a diode in Betty Perrine’s alternator, so Clay and<br />

Dave Darling made a quick trip to the local AutoZone looking for a<br />

914 alternator. No such luck. Instead, they picked up a couple of<br />

spare batteries, a charger, and hurried to re-join the tour over to the<br />

Belle Starr Lodge.<br />

Before dinner on Saturday, we took Clay Perrine’s tech quiz. It<br />

was quite fiendish, with some questions on real minutiae. And some<br />

very good ones—the 914-6 relay board question was very tricky!<br />

This year marked the demise of Ed Mayo’s long reign as Ramble Tech<br />

Master. Jon Lowe won, with Dave Darling 2 nd . Ed was 3 rd . But there<br />

was one point separating each of them!<br />

...the demise ofEd Mayo’s long reign . . .<br />

The banquet on Saturday evening was fun, especially<br />

considering the thousands of $$$ of door prizes that Rich Johnson<br />

collected. Everyone got something, thanks to our generous sponsors,<br />

who are listed at:<br />

http://vista.pca.org/914/SIGsiteEventsMUSR4Sponsors.html<br />

The box that Rusty made for storing my “Shaft” was nice, but it<br />

didn’t fit in a fully packed 914 very well. It will be good to have<br />

though, as it completely hides the “Shaft” from view. We did get it in.<br />

After packing the car, we drove across the highway to pay for the<br />

last 2 meals and Darlene (the food lady at the Belle Starr) mentioned<br />

that we didn’t drink enough! She had several cases of beer and half<br />

of the wine left...since she doesn’t drink the stuff, she wanted us to<br />

buy it and haul it away! We explained that we didn’t have much<br />

room...little green car...4 days of clothes, spare parts, tools, leftover<br />

T-shirts, cameras, etc. But we felt sorry for her, so we hauled her<br />

cooler out to the car and stuffed 63 cans of beer in all the little nooks<br />

and crannies in the car, then found a place for two 5-liter boxes of<br />

California’s finest box wine (we couldn’t afford the jug stuff) in the<br />

car. This devotion to duty is especially notable if you realize that<br />

the beer is OK beer...3.2% stuff! There is an old urban legend that<br />

Dr. Pepper is the drink of choice to clean out the oil passages in<br />

crankshafts... I may pour it into the cute box Rusty made and see if<br />

3.2% beer will dissolve the entire “shaft”?<br />

Oh, yes: the drink statistics:<br />

We had 3 wines on Saturday evening...Merlot, White Zin, and<br />

Chablis. We drank all the Merlot, half the Zin, and none of the<br />

Chablis. But it would have been different if 911 owners had been<br />

there and if we had cheese (which we didn’t). I didn’t get a count of<br />

the beer, but since it was all 3.2% it probably doesn’t matter.<br />

In contrast to the beer and wine on Saturday evening, we<br />

drained the coffee pot on Sunday morning. This was mostly a result<br />

of the contingent that was up until 5 AM Sunday, drinking some sort<br />

of hard stuff. They mostly didn’t make the morning tour over to the<br />

Cave, the subsequent exercise, and the group pictures. Even the sick<br />

and lame survived the hike up to the Cave...but not the hung over<br />

contingent. You can look and see who is missing from the pictures<br />

and figure all this out...<br />

But the 5 AM group was so mellow (or inebriated?) that they<br />

took up a collection for us and coerced Ron Mott to give it to us (he<br />

may have been the only one of the group able to stand?)...suggesting<br />

that we treat ourselves to a fancy breakfast on the way home. Much<br />

appreciated, guys, but look as we did, there was no place in OK to<br />

spend that much on breakfast! Had we not collected 6-months<br />

worth of beer and wine, the donation could have been used for<br />

beverages. I guess we’ll have to use it more creatively, like doing<br />

something nice for Jean, who has some pending education costs...<br />

We had a some special guests this year. John Straub, who is the<br />

Special Interest Group Coordinator and his wife Monique, flew in<br />

from San Diego to see what all the excitement is about. John, BTW,<br />

has a 914-6 race car. Gudmund Olsson and his cute girlfriend, Rikke<br />

Hallengren, flew over to the US to pick up a car and timed the trip<br />

to attend the Ramble. We enjoyed and appreciated these guests. They<br />

all seemed to have fun.<br />

MUSR 4 was hosted by Cimarron Region. Thank you John<br />

McDermott for all your help! The other helpers were:<br />

Lawrence Bonkoski, who designed and fabricated wonderful<br />

trophies and who also organized the Car Show/Concours; Clay<br />

Perrine, who wrote the Tech Quiz; the Davises who constructed the<br />

Rallye/Tours, handled registration, and did the T-shirts and caps;<br />

Diane Johnson for her cute goodie bags and name badges; Rich<br />

Johnson for the door prizes; and finally Dave Darling, Jon Lowe,<br />

John Straub, and Ed and Jan Mayo, who contributed their expertise<br />

and advice in the various seminars. Thanks guys!<br />

The REAL “Boxster Boulevard”<br />

By Bob Bianconi<br />

Photo by Bob Bianconi<br />

They came from Texas, New Mexico, Michigan and<br />

Arizona, forty-one Boxsters in all and over 80 Porsche<br />

people. They were there to participate in Boxstoberfest<br />

<strong>2002</strong>, the forth such Boxster gathering in Fredericksburg, Texas<br />

on the weekend of November 1-3. Fredericksburg was selected as<br />

host city because of its rich German heritage and because it sits<br />

on the doorstep to some of the most Porsche-friendly roads in<br />

Texas. Of course, there was always the added incentive of<br />

Fredericksburg’s great German beer, but that’s another story.<br />

The three-day event was sponsored by Hill Country Region<br />

with assistance from Maverick Region. Fourteen Boxsters drove<br />

down from the Dallas-Ft.Worth area including Maverick members<br />

Paul and Stephanie Seiler, Mike and Melissa Solorzano, David<br />

Photo by Bob Bianconi<br />

A beautiful sight at the Hilltop Cafe on a not-so-beautiful day<br />

including one from Roger Beasley Porsche in Austin that had<br />

made the trip that morning especially for the show.<br />

By late morning it was off to the famous Hilltop Café, an<br />

unassuming little restaurant on the outskirts of Fredericksburg.<br />

While there, we were treated to a gourmet-style lunch and some<br />

words of encouragement for a great weekend from Hill Country<br />

Region President, Dan Germain.<br />

“...do hereby proclaim Fredricksburg’s<br />

Main Street as ‘Boxster Boulevard.’”<br />

41 Boxsters participate in a soggy car show...<br />

Mize, Scott and Robyn Olson, Arli and Kyle Wilkes, Brandon<br />

Wulz, David Sumners and a host of new members.<br />

Like the Boxstoberfests of the past, this latest gathering was<br />

inspired by the camaraderie established through Porsche Pete’s<br />

Boxster Board; this website site has established itself as ‘the’<br />

place for Boxster discussions and contributed greatly to the<br />

success of this and previous Boxstoberfests.<br />

Boxstoberfest weekend kicked off with a Friday night<br />

hospitality and welcome party at the Auslander Restaurant on<br />

Main Street. Oops, I meant to say: “Boxster Boulevard”, the official<br />

name of Main Street as proclaimed by Fredericksburg Mayor,<br />

Tim Crenwelge. The Mayor graciously issued a city proclamation<br />

re-naming Fredericksburg’s main thoroughfare after the Boxster.<br />

The proclamation provides a hearty “Willkommen” and an<br />

invitation to make Fredericksburg the Boxstoberfest annual<br />

headquarters. What a great suggestion! Welcome packets provided<br />

notes on the weekend events, maps of things to do in<br />

Fredericksburg and a free Klammer. If you’re not a Boxster<br />

owner, you’ll just have to ask one what a Klammer is.<br />

Saturday morning the 41 Boxsters lined up along<br />

Fredericksburg’s Nimitz Parkway for a rain-shorten car show.<br />

Despite the rain, spirits remained high and everyone loved the<br />

display including the local constabulary who seemed to be<br />

admiring the show. There were Boxsters in just about every<br />

imaginable configuration and color, and from the debut year of<br />

’97 though the newest ’03. There were in fact, two ‘03’s present<br />

Photo by Bob Bianconi<br />

With belly’s full, the Boxsters were off to a four-hour tour of<br />

the best roads Hill Country has to offer. Hills, twists, curves and<br />

some spirited driving greeted the line of cars that seemed to<br />

stretch forever across Routes 336 and 337. It was top up for all<br />

but the lead car that –in the spirit of open-top driving – spent<br />

most of the rainy tour with an open cockpit. Lead car, Mike<br />

Rentner from HCR, had to keep a keen eye out for deer, several<br />

of which were seen at the edge of the road. It was, after all, the<br />

beginning of deer season and I guess the P-cars didn’t look as<br />

threatening as the camouflaged pickup trucks covered in mud<br />

seen throughout the weekend.<br />

With some time to rest after the tour, the Boxstoberfest-ers<br />

met at the Plateau Café to talk about the day’s drive, eat fajitas<br />

and if lucky enough, win a door prize. Several locals provided<br />

Melissa & Mike Solorzano with David Mize (center).<br />

24


door prizes including Boardwalk Porsche and Zims Autotechnik;<br />

just over half of the participants managed to snag a door prize<br />

including several Mavericks. After dinner, crack photographer,<br />

Gottfried Hogh from Michigan, treated folks to a slide presentation<br />

of the day’s events. Gottfried always seems to capture the essence<br />

of Porsche ownership, whether it’s washing a car in the rain or<br />

holding a mug of German beer.<br />

Sunday was time to sample Fredericksburg’s shops, restaurants<br />

and wineries, say farewell to the Boxstoberfest crew and urge<br />

for a return next year. And yes, I suppose there will be a<br />

Boxstoberfest 2003…<br />
