Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

Iwas glad when I saw Ted Glover’s

published calendar of more one-day and

weekend driving tours throughout Texas

and the surrounding states for this year

versus last year. Tours are one of Maverick

Region’s most popular events-they always

sell out. It warms my heart because it means

we are using our Porsches as the good

Doctor intended- we are driving them. In

the midst of all the controversy of the Cayenne deviating

from the bloodline of Porsche History, or the lack of a

Porsche contender for the overall win at Le Mans the past

few years, few can argue that for the past 50 years, nothing

beats taking a Porsche out on the open road and driving it

safely but spirited. Little has changed there. The tours are

a fantastic opportunity to combine many recreational

activities- history, dining, scenery, driving, spending time

with friends, weekend-getaway, etc. After all, touring by car

is Americana at its finest. Ted’s tours have sure come a long

way from my first tours as a kid driving to Florida with no

A/C and my family for twenty-hours straight in a 1969

Buick LeSabre. If you have never done a tour with the

region, you must make it your top priority this year. You

won’t be disappointed.

...February is the start of our 9-month

high-performance driving season...

autocross schools to prepare you for getting the most out

of yourself and your Porsche. Read more about them in

the following pages of this month’s Slipstream. What a

great selection of driving activities and venues. I’ll be at

a couple of the schools shaking off the cobwebs. The

autocross, time-trial, and race track events offer a

wonderful way to get the most out of our cars without

worrying about tickets, accidents, bad judgment, etc.

A special thanks to Jan Mayo for serving as our PCA

National Zone 5 rep for 6 years. Now she gets to be in

charge of our 2004 Parade! Jan’s replacement is the

capable club racer Brooke Van Horne from Oklahoma.

One final thought with respect to my comment above

about the overall win at Le Mans. Frankly, sports car

racing ain’t what was prior to about 1991. I know Le Mans

and the Daytona 24 hours are still among the crownjewels

of motor racing, but since the fractioning between

Grand AM and ALMS and the demise of the old GTP

prototypes, the move has been away from sports cars

towards all the other series. I guess TV and sponsorship

has had a lot to do with it also. I think if there ever was a

time when it didn’t hurt not to be in the top ranks of

sports car professional racing; it’s been the last few years.

I certainly hope that changes and, when it does, that

Porsche is right up front competing for the championship.

The Cayenne issue has also gotten me thinking. There

are those who say Porsche shouldn’t stray from its core of

sports cars and they shouldn’t have built an SUV. However,

the Cayenne is a joint venture with VW that allowed

Porsche to spend far less money out of its own pocket than

other companies have in developing their respective SUVs.

Also, like it or not, many Americans and Porsche owners

already own SUVs or have said they would buy one if

Porsche made it. While I know there was a time when there

was a wide array of 928, 944, and 911 (and turbo) product

lines, I’m not sure there won’t be even more Porsche

model diversity and choice in a year or so. Over the next

year or two it looks like a person will be able to get a

Boxster, Boxster S, 996 Coupe, Cabriolet, Targa, C4S, GT3,

Twin-Turbo, GT2, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, and even a

Carrera GT. All you need is the money. We truly are in a

golden era of ultra-high performance combined with

mild-manners and low maintenance, in all cars, not just

Porsches. Let’s see now, if I had won that recent Powerball

Lottery of $300 Million, what would I buy…

And while we’re on the subject of choices, February is

the start of our 9-month high-performance driving

season. We have a Drivers Education event at MotorSport

Ranch, Lone Star Region has one down at Texas World

Speedway in College Station, and we have several local

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

Idon't know about you, but I am very excited to

see driving season arrive. I have made a

personal commitment (new year's resolution?)

to participate in several driving events this year.

I have been to a few DE's and a handful of

Autocrosses and Time Trials in the 4 years that

I've been a member, but I am looking forward to

doubling my total this year. There are so many

events offered by the Maverick Region and other surrounding

regions, I would like to mix in some tracks that I haven't driven on

before like Hallet and Texas World Speedway. I can't wait, and I hope

to see many of you there!

Now that I am editor, I feel a little added responsibility to

become more active in all aspects of the club. Things like the Rally

School last weekend and the New Member Party on the weekend

before. Both events were held at Texas Motor Speedway, I don’t

know about you, but I can’t think of a better place to spend the day,

or better people to spend it with. You will see articles for each of

these events in next month’s issue, but you might have noticed the

cover picture that was taken there. I was very excited to have such

a wonderful assortment of Porsches there, including 4 very new

Carerra 4S’s. Bob Lewis even sent in a picture of himself standing

by his car at the party that you’ll notice at the end of this article.

Maverick Minutes

by Lanean Hughes

The first 2003 MRPCA board meeting was held

at the home of our new president, Keith

Olcha, on January 7th, 2003. Due to the wonderful

meal that Karen had prepared, we started the

meeting 15 minutes late!

Keith went “round the room” for us to state

our official position, give updates, and plan to

discuss any issues we might have later. Bill Dugan,

rules committee chair, reported that we will be wearing short

sleeves for Autocross and Time Trial, (see Slipstream for more

details). Jan Mayo reported that “Parade is Happening”.

Joe McGlohen reported on his discussions w/Lone Star and

other regions within Zone 5 to be more consistent with corner

worker duties and protocol for safety. Joe also reported that the BMW

club is looking to borrow our timing equipment for their upcoming

Club Race, Keith suggested we leave up to the AX/TT chairs to make

that decision, motion carried. Joe then also reported on the “Flag of

the Month Club”. Motion was carried to purchase more flags. Lisa

Steele reporting for Mark that the AX is on. Dennis Chamberlain

reported on our Happy Hours, their successes, and where the January

HH will be. Next month Dennis will have a proposal on our

mentoring program.

Mike Brodigan stated that we are at our advertising capacity,

with a wait list. What a great accomplishment! John Sandusky, our

DE chair for 2003, stated the February DE is on track w/Park Place as

the sponsor. Matt Platts reported having the first Slipstream under

I would also like to remind everyone that we have a members page

on our website (www.pca.org/mav) where you can post pictures of

yourself and your car(s). I highly recommend finding someone

with a digital camera, taking a picture, and sending that along

with your name and any other information that you would like to

see on the web to our webmaster, Michael Oakes.

This is my second issue and I think you will find that it's

packed full of great articles and event information. Everyone told

me that December and January are our slow months of the year. I

can't imagine what the busy season is going to be like, but I think

I will find out soon. There are several events happening in

February and March so take a close look at the calendar and pick

the events that interest you most.

Bob Lewis at the New Member Party

his belt was a good feeling (applause from Mavericks attending). Matt

wants to continue to emphasize that the 10th of the month is the

deadline, to please volunteer to write articles and we will see more

visible changes in the future to Slipstream. Matt also requested

approximately $350 for upgrade items for the computer. The motion

was made and approved.

Charlie Davis proposed the purchase of a van to be used for

timing and storage of our driving events for $1,000 with an

additional $1,000 for repairs. Approval was given for Charlie to

pursue the purchase. Joel Nannis reported “We have members”. Our

membership is still over 1,000 and we are growing rapidly. Teri Davis

reported on the upcoming Rally School and that we will be holding a

multi-event weekend in October. Teri is also looking to build a web

page for Rally events, so watch for it online. Lanean Hughes reported

the sponsor checks for the February and June DE have been sent. She

also reported on the Club Race and that things are moving forward.

Keith reported on the storage area that Maverick Region has secured,

and that keys are being distributed to those deemed necessary. Up

next was Michael Wingfield, assistant registrar for DE. He stated that

he enjoyed “watching Keith work the room”. It was noted that our

new president will be using the acronym TOL (take off line), during

his term.

With no further business to be discussed the meeting was

adjourned at 9 p.m. The next meeting will be at the home of Lanean

Hughes. The Board Meeting is for you, so join us!

Happy Hour at Nuevo Leon

by Dennis Chamberlain

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Tinker

Edwards, and Mark Gluck

Ihad expected a quiet Happy Hour

at Nuevo Leon on December 19,

since Christmas was less than a

week away. Not only that, but the

annual Maverick Christmas party had

just been held a few days earlier. To

my surprise, we had 42 rambunctious

members, including several new faces.

Nuevo Leon always rolls out the

red carpet for us, and they went even a step farther this time. The

restaurant reserves the entire row of parking in front for our

Porsches, and the lineup of cars this time was even more inspiring

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

than ever before. It’s a treat to be able to graze on good Tex-Mex

while gazing out the big windows at the lineup. In addition,

Lanean had arrived before I did (no surprise there), and had

arranged for the restaurant to put out enough appetizers that it

was hardly necessary to order from the menu.

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

The Wyatt’s and the Lage’s

Jeannine and Gig Philipp

New faces included Bill and Barbara Gross, who recently purchased

a new 2002 Boxster, and Gig and Jeannie Philipp, who

came down from Denton. The Philipp’s were members long ago,

sold their Porsche, and thought that they had to drop out. They

recently acquired a 1997 993,

so we’re lucky to have them

back. We also had several

longer time members who

haven’t attended recently –

including Lisa and Jay Walker,

Darren and Karin Sumrall,

and Carol and Joe Rybarski.

Kristi Kobell and Randle

Johnson walked over from

Park Place.

So it was Tex-Mex this

time, but get ready for scotch

eggs, bangers & mash, shepherd’s

pie, and fish & chips the next time. I’m not making this up.

Carol and Joe Rybarski

I’m talking about Sherlock’s Baker Street Pub, which is in

Addison, just behind Friday’s at Montfort & Belt Line. That will

be the site of the February 13 happy hour.

Maverick Driving Tours

by Ted Glover

Due to popular demand, the 2003 Tour Season is going

to be a busy one. The tours will cover different parts

of Texas, so members will be able to experience how

diversified the Texas geography is. It is not just flat.

The Maverick Region has a busy calendar for 2003, so I

have tried to fill in as many open dates as possible.

However, this was not always possible and there will be

conflicts, which means many times a choice will have to be

made. By having these choices, the club should be able to

satisfy all the members’ desires:

There was a desire by tour participants to visit Big

Cedar Lodge in the Fall of 2003. Unfortunately, Big Cedar

Lodge is already booked for October, 2003. So I have booked

rooms for our trip, 29-31 October 2004. The rooms that are

reserved for the club are in the Valley View Lodge and

Spring View Lodge. They also have cabins and cottages

available. If you would rather stay in one of those, just let

them know. If you want to go, call now and reserve a room

or cabin. The phone number for group reservations is

(417) 339-5233. Do not delay, as the cottages and cabins go fast.

Bonnie and I would like to thank all the participants

in the past tours and thank the group for the show of

appreciation in Eureka Springs.

Mark your calendars. The Dogwood Tour to Palestine is

coming up soon! I suggest that for all of our tours, plan to

arrive early so that you will be ready for the driver’s meeting.

Each car should have a full tank of gas, a walkie-talkie, and

I also suggest bringing a spare key. If you have any questions

about any of our tours, please call me at 972-248-7751.

Rules Meeting

by Bill Dugan, Rules Chair

Afairly informal rules meeting was held at the Christmas

party. The only item discussed was the clothing rule. It was

decided that it’s allright to wear a short sleeve shirt at

Maverick Region Time Trials. All other clothing requirements

remain the same. This is an attempt to align with DE and Parade

2003 (Tampa, Florida). It should also help me at the Parade 2004

(Fort Worth in case you didn’t know)

Maverick Holiday Party

by Mike Lockas

Alan and Kay Leibel hosted this year’s holiday party and, as

expected, it was a fabulous event. The Leibel’s house was

bursting at the seams with both people (an estimated 100 in

attendance) and food. A stroll down the block revealed a beautiful

collection of fine Porsche automobiles. That, coupled with many

houses in the neighborhood decked out with holiday lights really

helped to emphasize the season.

...the people are the reason that makes

events like this so special...

Nobody at the party went away hungry. The menu was

centered around the famous Joe McGlohen barbeque. Joe

brought a wide variety of smoked meats that included barbeque

beef, chicken, sausage, and ribs. There were a few other tables

spread throughout the house containing munchies like crackers,

cheeses, dips, crisp veggies, and many side dishes. You could

sample wonderful casseroles and vegetable dishes. So many

members brought their favorite sides, it was hard to decide where

to start. Oh - you can’t forget about the dessert table that was

overflowing with sinful goodies. Some attendees were even

caught sneaking bites of the sweets before dinner!

Much of the topics of conversation were bench racing and

what modifications were going to be done to extract the next

increment of performance from our beloved Porsche of choice.

The upcoming driving schools were also hot topics as people

were excited to get their spouses and children involved in their

hobbies. With good hearted kidding and challenging, it comes

back to our motto of “It’s not the cars, it’s the people.” The cars

may be the common bond that brought us together, but the

people are the reason that makes events like this so special.

I would like to thank Alan and Kay for opening their home

to host this fabulous event.

Driver Education Tech Update

by Ray Luedecke

With the dawning of a new driving year, some of the

newer rules for Tech Inspection from last year need to

be clarified or brought back to our attention after the

long period of rest.

Last year, PCA National handed down some new “suggestions”

to enhance the safety of our driving events. The most

talked about update was the “Cabriolet rollover protection”

rule. In laymen terms, cabriolet is convertible with a soft top.

All cars with these soft tops will need to have supplemental

rollover protection, as in a roll bar, roll hoop, cage, or

automatic roll bars. This is for all run groups. 996 cabs and

Boxsters have roll bars from the factory. Everything else (993

cabs, 944 cabs, earlier 911 cabs, etc...) do not come with

enough roll over protection. These cars will be required to

have aftermarket bars installed. There are other makes of cars

with built in protection: some models from Audi, BMW,

Chevrolet, and Mazda come to mind. (Check with me prior to

the event if you are in doubt about your particular car.)

...if you are being held in place with a piece of

rope, then your instructor can use that same

piece of rope...

The next update is that cars with soft tops will need

to pass the “broom stick” test. (Do this at home...) Sit in the

drivers seat with your helmet on, lower the top, place the

broom from the windshield back to the roll bar. If your helmet

is above this line, it is not safe. If you are wearing standard

3-point harnesses, there is some slack as you will slip down

into the seat if you roll over. (Again, ask me and I can look at

it during tech. You might try to get in touch with me earlier to

have time to get roll bar installed if needed...) If you choose to

The next update is that these cars will run with the tops

on or up unless the driver and passenger (instructor) both

have arm restraints. We prefer you to not use arm restraints as

when they are properly installed, they hinder in giving good

passing signals while on track. And instructors like to use

hand signals so the driver can see the track better.

The next update is the “Like restraint” rule. If the driver

has a race seat and 5/6 point harnesses, then your instructor

needs the same equipment. If you are being held in place with

a piece of rope, then the instructor can use that same piece of

rope. (Thanks Steve K.) If you cannot afford 2 sets of

seats and harnesses, then run with your stock 3-point harness

as long as you have an instructor in the car.

The last update is the dreaded “Grid Tech”. There was an

instance of somebody getting their car inspected a week

before the event and it passed as it was then. Then they

changed tires the morning of the event, and (uh-oh) the tires

fell off the car while on track. OOPS... They missed getting the

lugs torqued right with enough stud into the lug. So, when

Green and Blue students come to grid, the instructor will

walk you around your car doing a quick check of some

important things. The list is as follows: Wheel torque, tire

tread, empty all of the pockets in the car, empty the trunk(s),

remove cell phones and radar detectors, do you have brake

fluid, what pressure are you running in your tires, are there

any noticeable leaks from under the car, etc. The higher run

groups will be spot checked, but they should have enough

time on track to know what to do..??

This is a driver’s education event. We’re big on education.

It is not the responsibility of the tech inspector or instructors

to keep up with your car. We are teaching and reinforcing the

needed points to help you keep the event running safely.

Learning more about your car and the check points that need

attention when driving your high performance sport car will

only help you long term - on track as well as off the track.

Helping you to become better tuned to your fine driving

machine.

wear 5/6 point harnesses, the rule needs to be enforced strictly

as you will not slip and the situation during a roll over

becomes grave. For example: A tall person driving a Miata

with a 5-point harnesses and stock seats. If your head sticks

up above the “broom” line 2-3 inches, your neck is in danger.

Err on the side of safety.

Do you think this 911 setup this way would be able to run

again this year at MSR under the new rules?

Parade for Dummies - 2003

by Jan Mayo

Maverick’s private room at the Prairie House in Carrollton

was perfect for the 30+ members that came to talk about

and hear about Parade. Ooooh, What’s “Parade”? Half of

us were in the know and we shared every tidbit we could with the

others that hadn’t had the experience.

I like to call The Porsche Parade “sensory overload”. Do you

turn your head at the sound of a Turbo rounding the corner

down the street? Do you pop your head up when you hear the

distinctive motor of a 356? Does a racecar whizzing by give you

chills? If so, at Parade you’ll be dizzy in a matter of minutes.

Parade is a gathering of 1500 – 1800 fellow Porsche Enthusiasts

bringing 500-800 Porsches. You will see nearly every possible

model, color, option, and condition. Some are beautiful. Some

are so incredible you’re afraid to breathe anywhere near it. Some

of the owners would prefer you NOT breathe anywhere near it.

Some owners welcome you to crawl in, around, and under every

nook and cranny. Some cars are in such dilapidated state you’ll

wonder how it made it from across the state. But it’s there with its

happy proud owner, because it DID make it from across the state.

Meeting people is what I like to go to Parade for. You meet

fellow enthusiasts from all walks of life. And they’ve all become

my very best friends. There are parties, dinners, and social

...I like to call Porsche Parade as sensory

overload...

some of the little details that “Newbies” need to know. Like filling

out the registration form and what’s important to NOT FORGET,

and when/how to mail it. The Rules are important and James

Shoffit, speaking from personal experience, explained why.

In preparation for the Parade Rally, Teri and Charlie Davis

will be having a couple Rally Schools this spring. She explained

what a Rally was and why these schools ahead of time are not only

great fun but good preparation before you go to Florida.

Jan shares her Parade experience with a group of the attendees

opportunities to visit. If you’re standing in the parking lot with a

quizzical expression on your face or your arms overloaded with

bags, someone will stop to help. A new best friend. You’ll look

over the Concours site in awe at the panorama of colors and

someone will point to one and say, “That’s mine” or “I know that

guy.” Another new best friend. You could be looking in the engine

compartment of a brand new 996 and Peter Porsche will look

over your shoulder and say “Hello”. Yup, another new best friend.

As Parade 2003 will be in Saddlebrook Resort, just north of

Tampa, June 22-28, we shared these experiences then explained

Round-the-room introductions

Many Parades have specific Kid activities and Florida has a

wonderful array of things for teens and pre-teens and little kids.

Lanean Hughes gave us a rundown of these activities and we

introduced Lisa Steele as the Kid Activities Chairman for 2004

Parade here in Maverick-Town. Mike Bellinghausen promptly

sprung up presenting his youngest toddler to Lisa. “Here, you can

have him NOW.”

At this point

we started tying in

all these wonderful

things we’re promoting

in Florida

to the fact that

Maverick Region

will be hosting

the 2004 Porsche

Parade here in Fort

Worth, July 4-10.

As Chairman

Charlie tells James where those 45-series tires are

of 2004 Maverick

Parade I’m inviting everyone out there to get involved. Meet the

people and enjoy the family that evolves during the next 18

months of planning. Preparing a week long party for 1800 New

Best Friends, is no small endeavor, but Maverick is up to it. Come

join the family. There is a lot to do and lots of places for new and

happily established members to join in.

See you there!

Concours Judges Seminar

By Kathy Fricke

There will be a National Concours Judges Seminar this Spring at Prestige Imports in

Denver. General Manager Don Adis has agreed to host this event on March 2, 2003 at

the Porsche dealership at 9201 W. Colfax, Lakewood, Co. The seminar is supported by

Zone's 9, 5, and the Rocky Mountain and Alpine Mountain Regions.

The seminar will offer something for everyone regardless of involvement in Parade or

Regional concours. Nationally accredited judges will be used to head teams of apprentice or

first time judges. For the members, as well as the national judges attending, this formal training

is strongly recommended for increased proficiency as a Parade or Regional judge. Club

members wishing to become apprentice national or regional judges looking to improve their

skills are welcome to attend. Even if you are not interested in the judging aspect of it, you will

still learn a lot about your Porsche as a by-product of studying the judging process.

The Judges seminar is not a car care product knowledge class, but you may hear about

various products used by some of the attendees. If you have attended a Porsche Parade, you

may be familiar with the classification of Parade judging. The seminar will involve three classes:

Restoration, Preparation and Preservation. On a regional level we deal mostly with the

Preparation class. This is otherwise known as “the search for dirt”. At the Parade in Boise this

year I entered my ‘84 Carrera in the Preservation class. In this class the judges are not allowed

to touch the entrant’s car. The primary judging interest is the originality of your car. This is

not to say that the judges will not ask you to open everything up for inspection. It’s a very

interesting class for the entrant who has a perfectly stock, original Porsche. It is not a beauty

contest, but you do have to have the car prepared well. I will leave the Restoration and

Preparation class descriptions to more learned judge/members like Dennis Frick, Seminar

Chairman, Tom Scott, Bill Jackson and other gurus at the seminar.

It is my feeling that if you take the time and attend this seminar you will come away with

a wealth of new ideas. Please check the RMR and AMR web sites for more details.

Why It’s Good To Wear White

By Bill Kasdorf

Ithink I had a beer in my hand, and probably one already down when

Joe McGlohen approached me during my first Maverick Happy Hour.

He sensed my weakness. Here's a brand new Maverick, trying to connect

with this new group of strangers. He could strike quickly. Me, a corner

worker? Naw, I wanna be a race car driver, like Michael, or Hurley, or

Nigel. No one dreams of becoming a corner worker! "How much time,

what's involved, and when?" I asked, trying to find a reason to not get

caught up in this. "OK, yeah, put me down, I'll do it.” (Well, some day

maybe). It was like anything else, agree face-to-face then get your schedule

really full. It's worked for years on other stuff, like dentist appointments.

As is typical with Joe, he didn't forget. He bribed my wife, Penny, and

I with his (now) famous barbeque in exchange for attending a Flag and

Communication Class. He had apparently worked similar coercion with

others because he had at least a dozen in attendance for his training. OK,

we're trained. We still have time to manage this commitment. Remember,

I wanna be like Michael.

Volunteers? Yeah, Wendy put us down. Club Race? Yeah, we're

"trained". White clothing? It's October - in Dallas! There's nothing out

there, this is fashion-land. Everything white in Dallas is destroyed on Labor

Day. You'll accept light colors? OK Yeah, put us down for the Club Race.

7am on a Saturday? I must admit I got a kick out of telling friends and coworkers

about "working" a car race. Most had no idea this was available

and seemed intrigued by the idea. Being my first time, I really couldn't

explain what I was going to do, so I made some of it up to sound even more

important and exciting.

I found a flaw in Joe's training shortly after arriving at corner 6 with

my fellow workers. I needed to pack enough clothing and "stuff" for three

seasons; hot, cold, and wet. I also don't recall him telling me to bring

earplugs and Mechanix Gloves (for helping push cars that came to "visit"

our corner). I was sure to bring them Sunday.

At 8 in the morning it was windy and cold. But it was really beautiful

to be out in the middle of a quiet racetrack watching the sun come up. The

cold seemed to vanish when the first cars came out on track, as did the

quiet. We rotated duties throughout the day so each could learn all aspects

of working the corner.

Thanks to Joe and Wendy's recruiting skills we had enough people to

have one person available to "float" and secretly watch the cars. Watching

cars on SpeedVision is great, but seeing the difference in driving styles, up

Photo by Kevin Hardison

close and personal, is really great. I have a much better understanding of

the things my instructor, Dan Germain, tried to tell me at the last DE. "See

the corner station?", he'd ask every time. "Yeah, so what? I'm looking for my

apex, and turn out, and all cones in general," I thought. Now I understand

why I need to add them to my list of things to do. They (we!) are out there

to add a huge level of safety to this driving thing. Not only do you get to

see examples of a dozen different driving styles, you actually start critiquing

the way each took "your corner."

When the fastest and best drivers were on the track it was the greatest

seat in the house. You could pretty much just tape the Blue Passing flag to

the protection barrier in front of us, because they were all over each other,

passing in places that I didn't think possible, and all right in front of me.

It was all very exciting and educational, and it also gave me an entirely

new perspective of why we joined a group like the Mavericks. It really is

about the people, the cars are a bonus. These workers took their jobs very

seriously. And I was one of them. And when there was a break, walking

around the garages got us "thank you's" from the busy drivers. It was a

good feeling. Everyone in charge of this event went out of their way to

make each of us feel good about helping out. Countless acknowledgements

are due, and great food. But for me it was another of life's experiences, great

people, great cars, and recognition.

I still want to be like Michael, but now I've expanded my interests,

again. I truly enjoyed working the event. Joe and Wendy: Sign me up again!

Corners are even more crowded at TMS!

Parade 2003 - Plan For The Best

by the Parade 2003 Chairs

HOTEL

The 2003 Porsche Parade will use as its home the beautiful

Saddlebrook Resort, located approximately 20 miles north of the city of

Tampa, Florida. Saddlebrook is well known by golf and tennis

aficionados, as it boasts an Arnold Palmer designed golf course and a

world famous tennis academy. Saddlebrook is large enough to

accommodate not only all attendees’ housing requirements but has

spacious enough grounds to host almost all Parade events, a one stop

shopping sort of environment. The options for hotel accommodations

include a single room, one or two bedroom suite and even a few threebedroom

suites. The resort has lovely grounds, which lend themselves

to walking short distances either for recreation or going from one event

to the next. The food service and restaurant dining at the resort have

received the Golden Platter Award for several years, making the need for

food a great opportunity to try some quality cuisine. All banquets will

be held on property in the Grand Pavilion room.

Look forward to a resort experience that will have you thinking

of coming back in future years to relive the pleasures of the Florida

Parade!

SECURITY

Security at Parade 2003 will be the least thing you must think

about. Your precious jewels of cars will be perfectly safe, as well as any

personal items.

Parade 2003 is being held inside the grounds of an exclusive

resort and community. Entry to the area is controlled via a gate and a

guard employed by Saddlebrook resort where the event is being held.

The resort has a very extensive and well trained security staff, which

are on duty 24 hours per day. In addition to these normal and

excellent security procedures, a uniformed police officer with a

marked patrol car will be on duty every night of the Parade from 7PM

in the evening until 7AM the following morning.

Security will be the best ever provided! Please don’t forget to

bring along personal identification and your PCA membership card.

PARKING

Saddlebrook Resort is a walking village; therefore, the parking

will be dispersed to several lots throughout the resort. All parking will

be assigned upon arrival at the resort. A shuttle service will be

provided to take you from your designated parking area to the hotel

registration area. 24-hour shuttle service will be available to all

parking areas.

Since the parking lots are dispersed, the Concours Prep parking

area will not be located near the trailer parking. Shuttle service will

be provided between the two lots. Accommodations will be made for

those who wish to prep their car at their trailer.

Concours preparation areas will be in two lots with easier access

to guest accommodations. Entrants in the Concours will be limited to

one and one half parking places in the prep lots. After the Concours

on Monday, the prep lots will be opened to all Porsches, not just

Concours entrants.

Look for the Parade 2003 Application in the November issue of

Panorama. Be sure to mail your parade application on Tuesday,

January 14, 2003.
