BEING A PORSCHE MASTER

TECHNICIAN ISN’T ROCKET SCIENCE.

ON SECOND THOUGHT, MAYBE IT IS.

Afterall, we know a thing or two about velocity and we understand G-forces

better than most. We service Porsche’s on-board computers that are more

powerful than those found on America’s first spacecraft. Oh, and even

though our vehicles never experience a weightless environment, we always

do our best to provide a wait-less experience while your Porsche is in our care.

Prez Says

by James Shoffit, Maverick Region President

January is typically a slow month for

Maverick Region. We all need a chance to

recover from the holidays and regroup

before the full year of events gets into high gear.

We did have a couple of lunches, a Happy

Hour, a Tech Session at Park Place, and a Rally

School (so maybe it wasn’t that slow after all!).

Personally, Wendy and I had our annual ski

trip to Whistler. That is the #1 ski resort in North America (or so

they claim) and is about 2 hours north of Vancouver, BC. We were

so excited to go because the prior month had been uncharacteristicly

snowy for the area. They had received 6 feet of snow in just

a few weeks. But the weather didn’t hold out for us. They had a

warm front blow through which brought temperatures into the

40s and rain! We only ended up with one good day of skiing. Not

all was lost – we had good friends and Wendy’s brother and his

family to spend time with. We also got to try snowmobiling. What

a blast! We had a very good time overall, but I am still longing for

another ski trip this spring – and I doubt I will have the time to

satisfy that urge.

I have had a few volunteers come forward for helping with

the PCA information boards – many thanks to those who did. We

still need one for Autobahn in Fort Worth. If you think you could

visit the shop maybe once a month, feel free to let me know!

We had another volunteer come forward and offer to help

organize a tour (Feb. 9) to Granbury for Boxster owners. Robert

Bianconi is a longtime PCA member and relatively new Boxster

owner (you may remember him from his work on the One Lap of

DFW charity event last year). He is trying to bridge the gap

between Boxster owners that aren’t members of PCA and those

that are. This is a slightly different market that we are trying to

adjust to. The Boxster was much-heralded on the internet before

it was released, and the long waits for delivery caused the explosive

growth of internet fan sites and discussion boards. So they

developed a community of future Boxster owners before their

cars had even arrived!

Many of them are PCA members, but many are not. We want

to expand our services to meet their wants and needs, since we

feel that the more people we can include, the better the club as a

whole will be. We have been discussing these issues with various

Boxster owners for quite some time now, and we finally have a

volunteer that is eager to get these events going! Thanks, Bob!

There are lots of driving events coming up – Ladies, if you

ever even considered coming to an Autocross, the ladies-only

autocross school is coming up very quickly (Feb. 17)! And if you

have NOT considered coming to one – just show up and watch!

Come on out, and join the fun!

The Maverick Region Porsche Club opens the 2002 Autocross Season with our

"Intro to Autocross” & “Ladies Only Intro to Autocross” schools!

Anyone interested in driving, instructing or volunteering at this event should email ax@mavpca.org immediately to get on

board. Instructors and workers will get free timed fun runs at the end of the day! This is your chance to drive your car at our

new Pennington Field location before the season starts!!!

This year's school will be held February 16th at the Pennington Field Stadium parking lot in Bedford, Texas. If you attended,

worked or instructed at last year's school, you know that this is the perfect way to start the new season off right! Our Intro

School is designed specifically for the first time or novice autocrosser. Class sizes will be kept small so each student will have

their own instructor for the entire day! Our instructors are there to walk you through the entire process of having fun at a

Maverick Region Autocross. Our own Maverick Ladies will be instructing on Sunday!

The skills you can learn at our Autocross Series of events can help you become a safer, more confident driver in the real world.

Autocrossing is a safe, fun and addictive way to enjoy your car. The best way to get started autocrossing is to attend our AX 101

School. We will start the day with a brief classroom discussion that will focus on safety, car control and autocrossing basics. Then

you'll meet your driving instructor and by the end of the day you will have learned how to;

Register for an event • Get your car tech'd • How to walk a course • How to work a corner • How to prepare your car and yourself

Where to grid your car • How to drive a lap • Where to get your lap times

Besides getting to drive several instructed laps on an actual autocross course . . . you’ll get to practice:

Threshold braking • Regular, increasing and decreasing slaloms • Clockwise and counter-clockwise skidpads

Pre-registration is required and space is extremely limited. Last year's school sold out quickly. The first twenty spots are

first come-first served. If any additional spots become available later, they will be given to Maverick Region members first, then

other Porsche owners and then to all other applicants. One to one student/instructor ratios will be maintained. A waiting list

will be kept and entry decisions will be based on prior driving experience.

Official registration opens up during the Maverick New Members Party on February 3rd. See the page 3 for more details.

Online registration will be available at www.pca.org/mav after the New Members Party. All new Maverick members will receive

a $5 off discount coupon. We hope to see you there!

Because I Said So

by Wendy Shoffit, Editor

Isit here at my computer late on the night

before I’m to have the newsletter proof read

and brought to the printer. I’m trying to find

something witty to talk about and coming up

with nothing. James already talked about our ski

trip, where we *finally* went snowmobiling

(after I badgered him for 5 long years). He

already mentioned the upcoming AX 101 and

Ladies AX school. Not only that, he mentioned getting one more

lone volunteer to help out once a month to distribute Slipstreams

to a dealership.

Then it hits me, I ask myself why I used the term “lone volunteer?”

Why do those words overwhelm me with

sadness? I should feel happy that someone, anyone, stepped

forward to help out. But I’m not happy. I’m sad because in a club

with nearly 1000 members, we celebrate the one single person

who decides to lessen the load of someone else.

Frankly, I’m growing weary of asking, begging, or demanding

volunteers. After all, this is supposed to be a fun thing to do!

We belong to the best club in the world and drive the finest automobile

I can think of. All of us have lives outside of the club. We

are all dedicated to our families and our jobs. Yet I wonder what

personality trait it is that compels some of us to step forward and

do a job that no one else seems to want to do. Which job am I

talking about? Pick one... It’s not just the ones that take a lot of

time and energy to do, it’s even the easier ones. We all enjoy the

Maverick Minutes

by Andy Mears, Maverick Region Secretary

The first board meeting of the New Year was

called to order at 7:00 PM at the home of

Wendy and James Shoffit. James quickly

informed us that he did not have an agenda and

immediately lost control of the meeting.

After regaining control the first item up is the

now ongoing debate on what to do about the

Maverick Region Logo in light of the request from

Porsche Cars North America that we cease all unapproved usage of the

Porsche crest and Porsche name including all goodie store merchandise

and printed materials. After much discussion regarding our

options for modifying the current MR PCA logo, motions were

passed to remove the Porsche crest from the MR logo and, that a

request for licensed usage of the Porsche crest be made to PCNA in

hopes of returning the MR logo back to its original image. If such an

agreement cannot be made then it will be up to the direction of the

MR Board as to whether or not to leave the modified logo in place or

pursue a redesign.

Lanean gave an update on the DE activities planned for 2002.

Everything is rolling along and expectations are to fill all available

slots. Also, Lanean shared a touching letter of thanks from the Hope

Shelter staff address to the MR club for all the support and donations

throughout the years.

events this club puts on. We take pride that Maverick Region puts

on a heckuva show, no matter in what venue...Club Races, DEs,

Rallies, Tours, Autocrosses, Time Trials, Happy Hours, Dinner

Socials, etc. Whatever this region touches turns to gold. It’s just

how we do things.

Can you imagine what would happen if one of those key

organizers decided they had had enough? They no longer had time

to do what they’d been doing for years? After all, they had a family

and a job that needed their attention. They didn’t have time for

Maverick Region. We would all suffer. But, do you know what?

Most of the people I know wouldn’t do that. They *find* the time

and make that commitment. They’re not afraid of taking on a task

they’ve never done before. They ask lots of questions and get lots

of answers from the others who had taken on that task before them

and were now onto another, different task. Look closely at the

board page and see how many duplicate names there are.

Every club goes through this very same problem. How to ask

members to put aside their “real” lives for even a brief time to give

of themselves to others. I wish I knew the answer. Maybe if you ask

50 times, you might just get another lone volunteer. I wonder,

how many times am I on now? I’ve lost count.

Thank you to every single volunteer who has helped Maverick

Region and the Porsche Club become what it is today. If this has

compelled you to help, contact James at president@mavpca.org.

And thanks.

Joel Nannis has volunteered to coordinate a tour to the

International Exotic Feline Sanctuary on March 30, watch for the

ad and details in next month’s Slipstream.

Kevin Hardison reminded everyone that the new member

party is coming up on February 3 at which discount coupons for

the February AX School will be given to new members that attend

the party. Kevin reported that the AX School is coming together

and that he is looking for volunteers to help out email ax@mavpca.org

to volunteer or for more information.

Safety and Logistics Chairman, Joe McGlohen, requested and

the board approve a motion to purchase 4 flag sets for use at MR

sponsored Club Race events. With a conclusion of business for this

month, the meeting was brought to close. As always, check the web

site for the most current information about what is happening with

your Porsche Club.

Meetings are held once a month.

Remembering John Clever

By Rik Larson, Sacramento Valley Region, and Jack Carpenter, Diablo Region

John Clever, a noted rallyist and PCA member for almost 41 years,

passed away on January 11, 2002. John was a dear friend,

rally partner, competitor, and rally master. He was an active

contributor on the regional, zone, and national level. He received the

PCA Enthusiast award in 1975 from the national organization.

John had attended many Porsche Parades and was very

proud to be one of the last people to sit down when it came time

to do the 'count up' at the Porsche Parades. John was the driving

force to having the 45th Porsche Parade being headquartered in

Sacramento and was the original chairperson. His many friends

will miss John.

--Rik Larson, Sacramento Valley Region

. . . one of the last people to sit

down when it came time to do

the “count up” at Parade . . .

Diablo Region and PCA have lost an outstanding and dedicated

member.

John Clever had a heart attack this week and, like five years ago,

came home from the hospital early on January 11th in good sprits. So

good, in fact, that he phoned Judy Schreib and told her he would

probably go to Coco's for breakfast on Saturday, as usual. I am very

sorry to say that John had another heart attack later in the evening of

January 11th, and this time he didn't pull through.

PCA and Diablo Region in particular have lost one of the most

active and dedicated members I know in this or any other region. His

list of credits and accomplishments while a member of PCA would be

very difficult if not impossible to duplicate. John attended more

Parades, won more rallies, led more tours, put on more rallies,

and attended more social events than anyone I know. In addition to

his leadership as a nationally recognized rallymaster, John was a

charter member of the Diablo Region who held many elective offices,

including numerous terms as a Director and President.

John had an engineering degree and worked on many projects,

ranging from those assigned by the City Engineers Office in Walnut

Creek to the missile complex at Vandenberg AFB. He also referred to

himself as a farmer from Tracy who loved Porsches.

Well, we love you too, John, and we will all miss you very much.

--Jack Carpenter, President, Diablo Region

A Memorial or Remembrance for John Clever was planned for Sunday,

January 27th at 2 pm to be held at the family farm in Tracy, CA.

In lieu of flowers, the family is suggesting gifts to the George H. Clever

Planetarium or to the charity of one's own choice.

Happy Hour At Carraba’s

By Tinker Edwards

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain,

Dee Lersch, and Mark Gluck

My last happy hour as chairperson

and I almost didn’t

make it! Traffic, traffic, traffic

*#@!@$#$# (can *%!*#@ be said in

print?) between North Dallas and the

mid-cities and holiday travelers to

DFW airport and Christmas shoppers

everywhere… what was I thinking

when I scheduled this happy hour! I

guess I was thinking we had such a great time at Carrabba’s in August

with a fantastic turnout from the midcities, why not try it again and

again we had another big turnout!

Future happy hour chairperson Dennis Chamberlain and his

special guest, Stephanie Nix were caught in the traffic but managed to

join us in time for dinner. It was a real treat to have Ed Mayo join us

for his first happy hour although he tried to find a few excuses not to

come, he came, he mingled and I think enjoyed himself? Also we met

new member Richard Voreis, return new member Peter Weyandt and

future new members Monda Degan and George Whitaker.

Two years ago I started the Happy Hours under the New

Members Mentor Program to get more new members involved. I

really have enjoyed every minute of it but it is time to pass the torch

or steering wheel on to someone else for fresh ideas and new places to

visit. So now we have Dennis Chamberlain and his crew – Mark Gluck

and Dee Lersch - to “steer” us on to more fun places.

...can’t wait for more surprise guests

like Cher or Stephanie Nix . . .

I know I will leave someone out but I do want to thank Ben Witry

and Ruben Muro who were my original co-chairs and thanks to the

regular happy hourers who have been there to help meet and greet the

new members thru the months. Dennis, it’s all yours now and I can’t

wait for more surprise guests like Cher or Stephanie Nix.

Remember, It’s not just the cars …………..

Tires and the Seat of your Pants

By John Hajny, Central New York

Let's talk about the ultimate characteristic that sets a really

skilled driver apart from the norm. The fastest drivers all share

certain attributes to one degree or another; fearlessness,

"natural ability,"concentration, experience, good equipment, etc.

But there is one characteristic that sets the Schumacher's and the

Senna's of this world apart: FEEL. This is not an exclusive trait, and

it can be learned by anyone; the level of one's drive and goals

notwithstanding. This is the trait we are ultimately trying to develop

in ourselves, as without it, a driver will never be as one with his or

her means of conveyance and the stretch of road in question.

Do some people inherently have a better sense of feel than

others? Good question. Perhaps it would be more accurate to state

that certain individuals possess a higher innate sensibility where the

dynamics of road feel are concerned. In the end, anyone can

improve in this regard. Some just have to try harder. Improved feel

for the road also generally leads to a heightened sense of overall

awareness. That's really what Driver's Ed. is all about.

You might have heard it said that a driver's most sensitive organ

must be his or her backside. This is not as flippant as it may initially

sound. One's nether regions, in conjunction with the ears, eyes,

hands, and a healthy dose of intuition born of experience, make up

the proverbial "seat of the pants" feel that we are striving for.

Without it, one can never progress beyond merely driving

well mechanically. How can we accelerate our acquisition of this

all-important sense?

At this juncture, I want to focus on one basic component of

feel, and lend some advice for the novice Driver's Ed. student. Let's

talk tires. Tires are a big part of what we do on the track. I might

imagine that drivers spend more time discussing tires and their

effective deployment than any other topic. This has the unfortunate

tendency of making people, particularly the novice, believe that tires

are the most important part of the driving equation. If one has

progressed to the higher levels of performance driving, then tires are

indeed a valid concern. However, to start thinking about the "fastest

tire" before one has learned the how and why of their usage will

actually retard one's learning of the most important lessons;

mainly that of feel and car control.

As previously stated, the goal of Driver's Ed. is to teach you car

control. You will coincidentally develop a greater sense of feel, and a

heightened sense of what the car is doing and what it needs in order

to go faster in a smoother and safer fashion. There are many things

that contribute to the learning of feel: how deeply padded your

seats are, how stiff the suspension, whether your tires squeal a lot,

etc. However, how much cornering grip your tires have is the

biggest factor.

Unless one is Idiot Savant, one cannot play Chopin without

learning where the notes are on the keyboard. You can't learn to

drive well by going fast first! You need to learn what to do, and what

the car will do, gradually, and the easiest most effective way to

accomplish this is to do it at a speed that will allow you to access

your and your car's limits repeatedly. A speed where you reach the

abyss...and learn through experience how to return from it safely. A

speed that won't land you in deep do-do without your knowing

how to wield the shovel first! It's in the tires, you know?

R-compound tires are great fun and allow you to really fly, but

you have to earn those wings. Below the R-tire's limits, they will lull

you unto a false sense of security and make up for many inappropriate

driving habits. When you push it, the super-high grip of these

tires is accompanied by a more sudden loss of that grip; they are far

less forgiving than street tires. On top of that, if you've got the tires

without the talent, you won't have the ingrained instinctual

reactions available to help you deal with sudden cornering distress.

. . . a driver’s most sensitive organ

must be his or her backside . . .

Think of some of the great drivers: A.J. Foyt, Mario Andretti,

Jeff Gordon. They cut their teeth on dirt tracks where sliding is

control. Most every F-1 and CART pilote has at least some karting

experience -- the better the driver, likely the more karting he's done.

Learning with a car that moves around a lot will speed your

ascension into the ranks of the skilled drivers. Street tires allow a car

to slide around a lot compared to their R-compound siblings. The

lessons learned while sliding about are as important to the equation

as making sure the car has gas. If you've been coveting a set of

R1s...wait. Learn how to boil water before you try your hand at

real cooking.

Holiday Party

By Wendy Shoffit

I’ve been going to the Maverick Region holiday parties for probably

4 years now. I have *never* seen as large of a crowd attend

as I did this year. I would estimate that nearly 200 people made

an appearance. I’ve wondered why this year so many came. Maybe

it was everyone feeling the need to connect and feel safe with

friends and family. I, personally, was having a difficult time this

year getting into the “swing” of the holiday season. Something just

didn’t feel right. Lots of people around me seemed to be experiencing

the same thing. I guess coming to a party made it a little easier

to feel joy and the holiday spirit. Either that or the promise of

Joe McGlohen’s brisket brought everyone!

but when I saw there was very little left, I decided it had to be safe

and tried some. I was glad I did and, boy, was I sorry I had waited

so long! It was wonderful. Mavericks are certainly a talented bunch

of cooks. I wonder what we’ll all come up with next year...

Whatever it was that brought them, the party-goers had a

great time! The home of Lee and Linda Wilkins is just stunning and

the perfect setting for our gathering. It was decorated beautifully,

including an enormous Christmas tree. If only I could get *my*

house to look that good! We were all very sad to not see Linda’s

smiling face that evening as she was not feeling well. I’m sure Lee

could have used her help! I think hosting duties were quite challenging!

Fortunately, there were quite a few Maverick ladies who

gladly pitched in to make the hosting job easier. Lee and helpers did

a wonderful job!

Of course, the food that everyone brought was to die for!

There were more varieties of desserts than I’d ever seen. From

cookies to cakes, brownies to cheesecake. The most unusual dessert

award, however, goes to Jack Wales who brought a custard dish prepared

in a pumpkin gourd. I was intimidated by it for a little while,

Photo by Wendy Shoffit

. . . I decided it had to be safe . . .

In addition to everyone needing to bring a side dish to the

party, the entry fee included a new or slightly loved stuffed animal

for the Hope Shelter. That evening we collected over 100 animals

for the kids! Not only did we collect all those toys, some people

brought other items to take to the shelter. We had planned a trip

there for the following day. It all worked out nicely.

Hey Bill Dugan, “Say cheeeeeese!”

Jasmine Shoffit and Geneva Spreen had a ball together.

Jasmine also seemed to have a fabulous time. She and Geneva

Spreen played and played to their hearts’ content. No sooner did we

pull out of the driveway that night and Jasmine was out like a light.

I love it when I can spend a great evening talking to so many

good friends, eating delicious food, and having my daughter

snoozing on the way home, with a huge smile on her face!

Thanks so much to Lee and Linda Wilkins for once again

opening up their home to the Maverick Region members and

helping restore their holiday spirits. I hope we all have a much

happier 2002.

Valve Covers: Early 911

By Wayne Dempsey, Intermountain Region

One of the most common problems with the older 911 is the

occurrence of major oil leaks. While some oil leaks are

harder to fix than others, the oil leaks that originate from

the 911 valve covers are very easy to fix. From 1968-77 the upper

valve covers were magnesium. While very lightweight, there is a

coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch between the cam tower

and the valve covers. In other words, when the engine heats up, the

valve covers expand at a different rate than the cam towers. This

causes the magnesium covers to warp, and subsequently leak. It is

this leak from the valve covers that is very common on the older

cars.

If your SC or Carrera is leaking from the bottom covers, the

Turbo valve covers that are reinforced will help prevent this leak.

Since this is a very common upgrade, it may have already been performed

on your car. Check to see if your covers have been upgraded

before you order a new set. The newer ones are all aluminum,

and the lower covers have fins that criss-cross the outer surface.

. . . a good chance that you will have

a major oil spill if you don’t . . .

To see if your car is suffering from valve cover leaks, take a look

under the car and check the bottom of both the left and right valve

covers. If there are oil drips there, as well as oil on your heat

exchangers, there is a good chance that your covers are leaking.

Check the ones on top too, from within the engine compartment.

These are also very prone to leaking. A good way to check for leaks

is to clean the entire engine. You can clean the bottom of the engine

by taking it to a self-serve car wash that has a degreaser setting on

the nozzle. Don't spray any water inside the engine compartment, as

there are many things in there that you just don't want to get wet.

Instead, use some degreaser on a rag to wipe out the inside of your

engine compartment. Please don't dump any degreaser on your

driveway, as this pollutes the environment.

If you suspect that your valve covers are leaking, then simply

remove them from the engine and check to see if they are warped. If

you place the magnesium valve covers on a flat surface, you can

check to see if they are warped or not. Even if they don't appear to

be warped, remember that they will deform when they are heated by

the motor. If the valve covers are warped, then you should definitely

replace them.

The standard upgrade is to replace the valve covers with late 911

Turbo valve covers. This is a bolt-on replacement for 911 owners. Make

sure that you empty the motor of oil before you remove the valve covers,

as there is a good chance that you will have a major oil spill if you

don't. The Turbo valve covers are made of aluminum, and will expand

at the same rate as the cam towers, thus decreasing the amount of

warpage. The upper valve cover looks very similar to the original magnesium

one, except for the fact that it is unpainted. The lower valve

cover has fins to improve cooling and also increase stiffness.

If you own a 914-6 or are performing a 914-6 conversion, you

need to machine down a section of the lower valve covers on both

sides in order to have them clear the rear trailing arms. If you don't

do this, then you will not be able to remove the covers without

either removing the studs from the cam towers, or dropping the

engine. The fins must be machined down about a quarter of an inch

in order to accommodate the rear trailing arms of the 914.

Machining the covers will not hurt them, and they will still function

very well.

When you install the Turbo valve covers, make sure that you

use a new set of valve cover gaskets, screws and washers. The valve

cover kit comes complete with all the nuts, washers and gaskets. It is

important not to over-torque the nuts on the valve covers. I was not

able to locate a torque specification in the factory manuals, but I

would not torque them greater than 8 ft-lbs. Make sure that you

torque them down in a diagonal pattern, and it is advised to start at

4 ft-lbs., and then after all of them are tight, re-torque to 8 ft-lbs.

Well, that's about it. It's a really easy upgrade that should stop

one of the most annoying leaks on a 911. No more smoke coming

out of the rear of the car as the heat exchangers burn off excess oil!

I’m Marrying a Maverick

By Beth Wright

Before I met my fiance’, Brian Scudder, I thought a Maverick

was a basketball player in Dallas, but after a year of attending

DE’s, Club Races and Happy Hours I now know the

truth…Mavericks are unique individuals with a passion for

Porsches unequaled in the United States.

My first Maverick event was the February 2001 DE at

Motorsport Ranch. Brian had to be there at an ungodly early

hour so I told him I would meet him after my hair appointment

that morning. I arrived, perfectly coifed, only to be greeted by a

howling cross wind that cut like a knife and left me disheveled. I

went to the wall to watch Brian drive and was witness to what

came to be known as the “full Scudder”. Wow, I thought, this driving

stuff is cool, I’m going to like this! Unfortunately/fortunately

I have yet to witness another full Scudder.

. . . was witness to what came to

be known as a “full Scudder” . . .

My second major Porsche event was the Lone Star Region’s

Club Race at Texas World Speedway in March 2001. This was

Brian’s first Club Race and the excitement of seeing him on the

track was equaled only by the excitement of trying to keep his 928

running long enough to get him on the track. It was here that I

learned that girlfriends are pit crews and as one wily racer told us

“you’ve got to keep the women hungry, then they work harder

and faster so you’ll get done and they can have a meal”.

A recent post on the MRPCA Yahoo groups list was entitled

“You know you’re a racer when…” and included “…after you tell

your wife where you’d like to go on your vacation she answers

‘Why…is there a race there?’” Brian’s second Club Race was at

Putnam Park in beautiful Mt. Meridian, Indiana. This was the

destination of our first vacation together in June 2001. I should

have known when I was asked if I would like to visit family in

Illinois and Indiana for our vacation that Brian had a race in

mind too. But that’s okay because I learned valuable information

at Putnam Park. It was there that I met a racer’s wife named Peggy

who proudly showed off her diamond jewelry collection and

related how each piece was a direct result of her husband’s

Porsche purchases.

The culmination of our racing season occurred in October at

the Maverick Region’s Club Race at Texas Motor Speedway. Brian

was the chair of the event and also a racer so the tension was palpable.

Between the logistics, the unwieldy chicane and the mysterious

problems in the 928 that caused it to stall repeatedly on the

track, we somehow survived and breathed a sigh of relief when it

was finally over and had been a success. Now that Brian had time

to think clearly again, he came to his senses and proposed in

November. I thought it was odd when he chose not to attend the

Founder’s Day dinner, but he had a more romantic setting in

mind for popping the question.

Once our families had been given the news we talked about

setting a date. My first thought was September 28th (get it? 9-28!)

but we couldn’t wait that long and started looking at dates in May.

Believe it or not, we did set our wedding date around driving

events so that our good friends in the Porsche Club wouldn’t have

a conflict. Hey, we’re not naïve, we know we wouldn’t be first

choice! We toyed briefly with having the reception at TMS, and

we joked about registering at The Porsche Store. If it weren’t

for the roll cage we might have wanted to drive the race car

to the reception. We also

planned the honeymoon

so we’d be back in time

for the Club Race over

Memorial Weekend. Once

we’re married and the

Porsches are “ours,”

I look forward to seeing

you at future events as

a New Maverick.
