Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

May is here, along with the warmer

weather and Memorial Day. I

would like to cover a number of

topics in this month’s column starting with

some thanks to several parties. First of all,

I’d like to thank Robyn Howard for taking

over the Goodie Store from Dee and John

Lersch. Robyn has some fresh ideas and

Dee and John have been kind enough to

transition the operation smoothly over to Robyn. I want to

thank Dee and John again for over two years of support in

running the store. One idea Robyn and I have discussed is

adding the Goodie Store items for display on the new

Maverick website. Which brings me to my next thank-you.

When we began our search for a new webmaster for our

site, Wendy Shoffit suggested Steve Boyd. Wendy has been

working with him on the Parade website and that’s been

going very well. Steve had some help on the new website,

but will be the main point of contact from now on. If you

haven’t seen either website, please visit www.parage04.org

and www.pca.org/mav. You’ll like the results. I guarantee it!

Thanks to Wendy for her suggestion, and Steve for his

efforts.

... thanks to several parties ...

I also want to thank Joe McGlohen, our safety and

race-control chair and the many volunteers from the

Maverick Region who helped out the Lone-Star Chapter

(DFW area) BMW club in putting on their DE in March.

Many of the staff positions filled by Mavericks can be,

and oftentimes are paid worker positions. These workers

plus several other volunteers (Grid, corner station,

Black-Flag, Control, Instructors) worked for free for 16

hours over two days based on an agreement struck

between Bob Mainini the BMW DE chairman and Joe.

Maverick would help run the event; Lone-Star BMW

Chapter would donate $1200.00 to the Hope shelter on

our behalf. I received a very nice thank you letter from

Lisa Huffaker the Shelter’s administrator after we sent

her the check. This is another step in the “Rebuilding

Hope” project where Maverick is assisting the Hope

Shelter in constructing their new facility. The current

building (house) is both worn-out and too small. There

is more on the Hope Project later in this issue of

Slipstream.

Speaking of the month of May- it must be time for

May at Mayo’s”, a Saturday night social tradition that

has been going on for several years. In years past, it was

held in partnership with Ussery Printing. Mayo

Performance cleans up, moves out the cars, and hosts a

dinner for enthusiasts by enthusiasts. Both Mayo

Performance and Ussery Printing have been contribut-

ing to the region in many ways for years. Ussery Printing

has printed Slipstream 1982, at a reduced rate, that at

times has generated a loss, all to help keep our costs

down and to serve the club. Mayo Performance has been

providing Autocross, Time-Trial, and Drivers Education

technical inspections for free to Maverick as well as non-

Maverick entrants for as long as I can remember.

By the way, let me mention that this month’s board

meeting will be held at Autoscope in Plano. I met Nerces,

Autoscope’s owner, a couple of years ago at a Drivers

Education, and I’m glad to finally get to see his shop.

I got back recently from two very enjoyable eventsone

was the annual club race at Texas World Speedway

put on by the Lone Star (Houston) Region of PCA, and

the other a weekend meeting with the Ozark Region up

in Arkansas. I’d like to congratulate a few Maverick drivers

for really outstanding racing performances at College

Station last month in the club race. The first goes to Jim

Collier, who formerly ran in my class- C stock before

recently purchasing a 2004 GT3 Super Cup race car. He

took three first-in-class (GTC-3) wins along with one

second overall, and one first-place overall in his run

group. Jim teamed with another Maverick, Jim Buckley

in the 90 minute Enduro on Sunday. Early in the race,

Jim Buckley set the lap record at the track for the GT3

Super Cup class. Jim also set the track record for his normal

race class G-stock the prior day in another car. While

both Jims were setting the track on fire during the

Enduro, Maverick Glen Gatlin came in a strong second

place overall, and second in class behind Buckley and

Collier in his 2001 Cup Car. Glen beat other drivers with

newer cars to get second place. Meanwhile Bryan

Henderson and Mike Lapp, who have both been driving

their respective F-stock cars for years, both had personal

bests lap time-wise during the weekend, and broke

through some significant lap time barriers.

Lastly, I had a wonderful weekend in early April up

in Arkansas. Ron Mott, the Ozark President asked

Charlie Davis and me to come up and join their Saturday

meeting to present an overview of the 2004 Porsche

Parade with respect to the events, schedule, and any tips

we could provide to the 18 people from the region who

plan to attend Parade this year in Fort Worth starting

July 4th. Let me mention that Arkansas does not actually

have a Porsche dealership in the state, and Ozark has

100 members. Now you understand why that group of 18

is a real team of enthusiasts. Of course no trip up there

would be complete without a good drive through the

country. After the meeting we drove from 4:30pm until

7:00pm through the twisties on a route that Ron knows

well and planned earlier. Then we had dinner back at his

house with he and his wife Joani. 815 miles driven,

including a meeting, lunch, a dinner, a brisk tour

through the countryside, and 6 hours sleep in 29 hours

elapsed time. Only in a Porsche!

As one of only two dealerships in the country to earn the Premiere Dealer and

Perfect Service Award - and the only one in the Lone Star State - we were, shall

we say, a bit excited. Thanks to our incredible clients, our perfection-driven

staff, and Porsche, for giving us a reason to celebrate today, and every day.

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Editor

Once again this month, we have an issue

that is packed with great events. We were

a little tight in April issue, so the

Daffodil Tour to East Texas had to wait until this

issue. On the up side, you can enjoy an abundance

of great photos from this tour as well as

the April tour to the Texas Hill Country. By the

time you read this, you’ll have already missed

the tour to Paris, Texas, but don’t fret - you can

still make the Nacogdoches Tour in June. Spring and early summer

are definitely the tour seasons in Texas; there are so many

great sights to see and wonderful driving weather to enjoy.

April also marked the start of the official driving season.

Many Mavericks (and non-Mavericks!) attended the first Time

Trial and Autocross of the season at Mineral Wells. As is often

the case at Mineralring, weather wasn’t very cooperative, but

everyone that I’ve talked to had a great time. Chuck Machala

designed a very creative Autocross course that was enjoyed by

all. It was a long course, so seat time was at a

maximum. Take a look at the times on page 19 and you’ll see

what I mean. It isn’t very often that you get to drive a 90+

second Autocross (even high 80’s for the ‘fast’ people).

The month of May has a new event for the Maverick Region

Maverick Minutes

by Mimi Spreen, Secretary

The April Board meeting was held at the

home of Lanean Hughes on Tuesday, April

6, 2004

Attendees: Matt Platts, Keith Olcha, Mimi

Spreen, Michael Wingfield, STeve Boyd, Joel

Nannis, Mike Brodigan Noby Takahashi, Bill

Miller, Chuck Machala, Andy Mears, Wendy

Shoffit, Joe McGlohen, Dennis Chamberlain

and Bob Knight.

The meeting was called to order at 7:15 pm with Keith's

'Round the Room

Keith - the next board meeting will be held at Autoscope on

5/4. The Board decided not to hold a meeting the month of July,

because of the fact that Parade will be held from 7/4 - 10. There

is a new Goodie Store leader, Robyn Howard. She will work with

Steve Boyd, to have pictures of commonly used items up on the

web site for demo purposes only. You can look at the item, then

buy it from Robyn, not order on line. We received a letter from

Lisa at Hope Shelter regarding the $1,200 donation from the

recent BMW DE’s corner workers.

Miller - TT #1 at Mineral Wells went well. Rules and

procedure changes requested and made.

Matt - needs articles and pictures. Discussed what articles he

needs. It's the chairmen's responsibility to get Matt the articles

and pictures. He shouldn't have to chase down an article. Parade

special issue, which will be the July issue, will work extra hard to

get printed and available to hand out at Parade.

Joel - 1190 members. Completed a 6 month update of

addresses.

- a golf outing! If you are a golfer, grab your clubs and head out

to the Bear Creek Golf Club on Saturday, May 8th. Bear Creek is

conveniently located on the West border of DFW airport, so it

should be an easy drive for almost everyone. Play starts early, so

you should have plenty of time for the short drive to Mayo’s

(also in Euless) for the May at Mayo’s dinner social. See page 2

for more information and send a RSVP to Lee Wilkins. We’ll

work hard to get future golf event notices to you with plenty of

time to plan.

The Hope Shelter will be benefiting from a pair of fundraising

events later in the month. Several sponsors have organized

a “Poker Run” for the weekend of May 22nd/23rd. Saturday

is for cars & trucks, while Sunday is for motorcycles. If you have

never driven a Poker Run, it can be a hoot - you should try it

out. I’m sure they have some great driving routes planned, and

with the proceeds benefiting the Hope Shelter, you can’t go

wrong. There’s even a dinner/dance on Saturday night for those

of you who would like to kick up your spurs.

Lastly, I would like to remind everyone that there are three

different groups that meet for lunch socials around the

metroplex each month. If you live or work in the North Dallas

or Mid-Cities areas, then come check us out. See the ad on page

2 for more details.

Wendy - Parade has 526 entrants. There is a meeting on 4/17

at the Worthington at 9:00 am. Ussery Printing’s cost to print

Slipstream has been rising for several years. Ussery has proposed

an increase of $300 per month to cover the increased costs, that

price includes prepress time. A motion was made to approve the

increase of $300 to a total of $1,850 per issue beginning with the

May issue. Printing costs will be evaluated again when new

advertising rates are proposed later this year.

Steve Boyd - needs pictures of events, ie: driving events and

social, to put on the new and improved website.

Noby - nada

Chuck - There is an autocross on Easter and also an

autocross at TMS on 4/18.

Mike Brodigan - will put together a proposal to give to

Slipstream advertisers increasing their costs. He feels that we will

still fill the magazine, but may lose some long time advertisers.

Michael - Mazda's Rev it up, last weekend had several

Mavericks who were in the top 5% overall, driving Mazda's

even!!!

Lanean - Hope Shelter project is now looking at buying a

separate property because of land issues. Once the new property

is purchased, building will begin. The President of PCA Hawaii

Region was in town and visited with Lanean.

Bob Knight - cashed in 2 of 3 CD's and will be moving

account to JP Morgan Chase. Signature cards were signed by the

appropriate Board Members. First quarter numbers have been

submitted and will be published in Slipstream.

Meeting adjourned at 8:45 pm.

Happy Hour at Dave & Buster's

by Dennis Chamberlain

Happy Hour Crew: Jay Easley,

Tinker Edwards and Dennis Chamberlain

Luckily, Dave & Buster’s was

prepared to handle us. Of

the fifty attendees, we had

plenty of new members and

first happy hour.

Dave & Buster's at

Walnut Hill and Central is

now managed by longtime

PCA member Mark

Gomez, who arranged,

among other things, for

game cards for the

attendees (at least the ones

who rsvp’d!).

New members included

thirty sent rsvp’s. This was

our first happy hour incorporating

the rsvp approach,

and it caught a lot of

members by surprise.

Hope “Building” Update

By Mark Gluck

Have you looked for a reason to become more

involved with your club, to satisfy that desire to

do more for and with the communities of which

you are a part? Maverick Region is one of the major

sponsors of the Hope Shelter, for victims of domestic

violence. Through

the club's activities

over the years we

have become a welcome

benefactor of

some very deserving

people. Our participation

has been significant

with respect

to the overall aspirations

and needs of

the shelter, and much

appreciated.

Members of the club

are always treated as

very special people

whenever we visit

the Shelter. We make

donations of cash and

goods throughout the

year, gleaned from our

various events. A few

months ago we got the idea to think MUCH bigger.

Our club, with participation from the community at

large, is going to see that a new 5,000 square foot facility

is created to further the efforts of the shelter for years

to come. We are committed to this possibility, and a

dedicated team is working on the foundations, so to

Yes! I want to help. Here’s how:

speak. We have found many people are excited about

the possibility of being associated with such a worthy

project, and one that is linked so closely with their club.

I encourage you to contact me to see how you might

easily contribute - not necessarily monetarily, but with

assistance, contacts

and expertise.

We have

already completed

design

requirements

and concepts,

initial project

plans and time

lines. We are

presently dealing

with zoning,

permits,

etc. and,

depending on

the results,

hope to move

quickly to

final plans

and construction!

That can only happen

with the broad participation of our club members and

others in the community. The key to our success is participation

by interested people such as you. Mention

our project to a few other people, give THEM the

opportunity to participate if they wish. Tell us how

you want to participate. This is a gift that will give

back to you and them many times over.

East Texas Daffodil Tour

by Bonnie Glover

The answer to Willow City Loop and bluebonnets is in East Texas.

Instead of fields of blue as far as the eye can see, picture hills and

valleys of yellow as far as the eye can see. Mrs. Lee's Daffodil

Garden, Daffodil Valley, and a railroad car full of daffodil bulbs planted

over 40 years ago now produce a view of daffodils not seen anywhere

except in Holland.

Locals know all this simply as Mrs. Lee's Garden.

Between February and March, visitors (including Porsche

drivers) travel the twisting and turning back roads to reach the 1,150

acre working cattle ranch near Gladewater to witness one of the

Photo by Tinker Edwards

The yellow daffodils make a great photographic backdrop

Photo by Tinker Edwards

Mineola - the Homemade Fried Pie rest stop. "You cannot drive on an

empty stomach!" I think the great driver Fireball Roberts said that.

And, being an ardant fan of Fireball Roberts, we headed down, and

up, and around to Gladewater, the "Antique Capital of East Texas"

and Stephanie's Cheesecakes and Restaurant.

Tourmeister Ted Glover pauses for a photo

spring's most wondrous sights: the flowering of almost 20 acres of

daffodils and an acre of jonquils. Like Willow City Loop, one is

astounded at the magnitude of the spring eruption of color.

... being an ardant fan of Fireball Roberts,

we headed down, and up, and around ...

Prior to arriving at this mecca of yellow, the Porsches first had to

navigate the twists and turns and ups and downs of the back roads

East Texas is known for. As usual, great back roads and visions of food

are a dominant driving force with the drivers on these tours. So, after

an hour and a half of spirited driving, we arrived at the first stop in

(check out the online Slipstream for full-color photos!)

Yes, some of the roads were dirt - but it was worth it!

After lunch, it was time to slow the pace down, as we were

driving on about four miles of graded dirt ranch roads which wound

through the daffodils. And, not a Cayenne in sight! Our touring

Porsches did very well, thank you very much.

We drove slowly through a sea of vivid yellow blossoms bobbing

in the sunlight. In some places, the color stretches across the hills and

valleys as far as the eye can see. Of course, we had to stop and walk

amongst the daffodils and take a million pictures of daffodils and

Porsches, and not necessarily in that order.

Carolyn, who manages the estate and tours also got involved. She

had her video camera and a 35mm camera, and she had called the

Gladewater media to document this event. She mentioned something

about it becoming part of the "Lifestyles Of The... something-orother"

program. She did say she would call us and inform us when to

expect the segment to air.

After the filming ended, the now famous Porsche Tourers

resumed the spirited back road driving to DFW and our now

inadequate gardens. On the drive back it was difficult to stay

focused on the road because I just knew that every female in the

group was mentally preparing a honey-do list for us poor schmos to

turn our gardens into a Mrs. Lee's Garden. Sorry guys. This trip

sounded great when I planned it!

Time Trial #1

By David Hedderick

As an out of town racer I am never really sure of what

kind of a situation to expect. Usually I feel unfamiliar

with the club’s course layout, organization, most

of the people and what my level of enjoyment will be. We

have all experienced this. You go to an out of town event

and are let down because we did not get as many runs as

we could have due to poor organization or do not enjoy

the course because it did not suit your car. I feel that the

Maverick Region PCA Time Trial events in Mineral Wells

are an exception because I know what to expect, a well run

event, with a good course and great people who put a lot

of time and effort into making the event fun.

... a good course and great people who put a lot

of time and effort into making the event fun ...

The first time I attended the Maverick Region

time trials last year I felt welcomed by everyone, like

they were really happy that I had attended the event.

The people who welcomed me even took the time to

assist a newcomer so he could learn the ropes and

maybe even end up having a fast time as well. I went

home after this event happy and ready to come back to

Mineral Wells to race there again.

I came back to Mineral Wells on April 10 with

the great expectations, based on my first event there.

Just as I expected the event was excellent. I received a

few instructions to refresh my memory of things that I

needed to be reminded of. The people were the same

warm, friendly group that I had met on my first trip to

the time trials.

Although it was colder than I had expected, being

from Houston where it rarely gets that cool in April,

I still had a great

time driving the

course. It was a

All in all it was still just as much fun as I remember

it. All the fun of a track day and autocross twisted into

something that shows what I do poorly at both *grin*.

Perhaps bringing my Miata on street tires was more of a

handicap than I had thought it would be. Nevertheless I’ll

try to make it to as many as I can. I enjoyed this event so

much that I plan on coming back with my dad to Time

Trial #2 in the family “racecar”, my mom’s 2001 Porsche

Boxster. Hopefully then I’ll look more like I’m running

a time trial rather than a F.I.A. rally. These events are

something I don’t get the chance to do anywhere else. So

keep up the good work, and I’ll make the 300+ mile

drive as much as I can.

Autocross #1

By Dean Yamada

Easter Sunday was the first Eastercross of the year for the

Maverick Region PCA. It's been a long winter break and I

was quite anxious to go racing again!

I watched the weather reports for a couple of days before

and with only a 30% chance of rain in Mineral Wells, I wasn't too

worried. It turned out to be a terrific (dry) day, but whatever the

weather forecasts says for Mineral Wells, always add 10 degrees

to the worst and add about 10-20mph to the wind conditions. I

think weather.com said an average of 56 degrees Fahrenheit, but

it felt like it was 46 degrees, and of course quite windy!

... whatever the weather forecast says

for Mineral Wells ...

At the start of the event, there were several new things

being tried out for this upcoming autocross season. I noticed

a brand new digital LED timer that shows your car number,

time, and penalties, as well as a new bar code system for keeping

track of the cars as they come to the starting line. It was

mentioned that this new system was being guinea pig'd for

Maverick Region's upcoming involvement in the PCA Parade.

Also new for this season was a starting light - more so a

traffic light system that lets you know when to start your run

or not - red means stop, green means go. Hopefully all of this

new technology means improved efficiencies throughout the

day and for all future events, including the Parade (Fast

Forward --> We were done with all 8 runs by 1:30pm or so, so

I'd definitely say it helped! ;) )

The course started out with an egg-shaped skid pad that

had a lot of grip. The tire wear on my driver side tires was

noticeably more worn than the passenger side at the end of the

day! :) From the skid pad, it led to a couple of tight 90 degree

turns to a couple of box turns that resembled ears of a rabbit -

how appropriate for Easter Sunday. The course map labeled

this section "The Wabbit Hole." This section led to a long

7 cone, decreasing distance slalom. f your hands weren't quick

enough, it was easy to build too much momentum and spin at

the end - well maybe that was just me. After the slalom, a

couple of sweepers with a tight pivot cone in the middle led to

the tight, slow way down, finish. This was roughly a 90 second

course and had a great combination of fast sections, tight

sections so tight, I didn't think my car was wide enough for the

box turns, and some great sweepers for plenty of drift action,

well maybe that was just me again.

Working the course gave me the opportunity to watch

people's approaches to various sections of the course. From the

morning session, I believe Cody Sears in his 914 and Chuck

Machala in his "Boxter" (Chuck doesn't need the "S" in

Boxster) were battling it out for top time of day. Cody and

Chuck absolutely flew around the Easter egg skid pad and went

practically wide open throttle through the Rabbit-boxes that I

slowed to a crawl for. From what I could tell, Cody finished all

of his braking for the tight sections in a straight line and did his

downshift with a perfect rev match all before he even turned in.

Chuck's approach didn't look fast, but I think the smooth,

graceful inputs is what nets the fastest times. So I guess what

doesn't look fast (smooth inputs) isn't always the case when it

comes to the fast raw time. My approach was nothing short of

"wild-banshee" with the rear end steering the car (not sure how

many cones I hit with the rear end of the car), but hey, I was

having fun, though it wasn't nearly as fast.

I think the flattest cornering car award goes to Bill Miller's

911. After watching dozens of cars through the course, some

with substantial body roll, I was amazed at how flat Bill's 911

stayed through the slalom and the fast sweepers. It seems to be

Cody Sears “hopping” through the decreasing slalom.

set up very nicely and not oversprung or bouncy - it just looks

like it corners on rails. Kudos also goes to Kevin Hardison for

being the "photo guy" and snapping action photos at various

sections of the course.

In summary, the first autocross event of the year was a big

success. The mix of fast and tight sections gave all cars - from

high horsepower, heavy American domestics to lightweight,

low horsepower, grippy 914's a chance to shine in different sections

of the course. Leaving around 1:30pm was also a plus as

I got to squeeze in some good autocross racing and still make it

back for the rest of the Easter Sunday festivities.The diverse mix

of cars - old and new Porsches, 914/916, Boxsters, 911's alike as

well as a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, American Iron, Miatas, and

even a Volvo show that all types of racers feel welcome and

flock to the Maverick Region PCA events.

Hill Country Bluebonnet Tour

by Clara Lewis

Day 1: We departed from the old Courthouse in Hillsboro.

After our first stop in Hamilton, the fun began. We traveled

along winding, curvy roads up and down the scenic countryside

which was filled with large patches of bluebonnets and

wildflowers. Herds of cattle, flocks of goats and sheep grazed

upon the green grasses. These roads led us to our next stop at

Longhorn Cave Park where we viewed beautiful foliage and

unusual rock formations. We even caught up on some Texas

History! Then on to lunch in Marble Falls at River City Grill

(the proprietors also own the landmark Bluebonnet Café). Next

it was on to Wimberley and the Wimberley Glass Works where we

saw incredible hand blown multi-colored glass vases, bowls,

chandeliers, covers for outdoor lights and one of a kind silver and

glass jewelry. We were treated to a demonstration of the glass

blowing process by two young and humorous artisans. We ended

the day with a relaxing catered gourmet dinner at The Haven

River Inn in Comfort, Texas.

Day 2: Heading for the hills and more great roads we

stopped to tour the museum at Lost Maples State Natural Area.

Traveling on to Brackettville, we ate lunch at Barbaras Table

where all the food is fresh and prepared daily by gourmet chefs

and owners, Barbara and Neal Simmons and their son Barkley.

The Simmons family kindly opened their restaurant for us, but

they are normally closed on Saturday. After lunch we departed

for Kerrville, home and complex of James Avery, master jeweler.

Many baubles were seen and purchased! We enjoyed dinner at

the Guadalupe River Ranch Resort and Spa. Service was a bit

slow due to a “large” wedding reception also being hosted there.

Our drive back to the hotel was an obstacle course of “deer

dodging”. However, we enjoyed seeing the variety of deer families.

Day 3: We headed out for the “bluebonnet mecca”, the

Willow City Loop. Appropriate named for its numerous vast

fields of bluebonnets. In one particular field of bluebonnets and

white poppies, standing along the roadside in an unfenced area,

were several cows, calves and one big black bull. Boldly, heading

toward the herd in her red shorts was Dee Lersch (one of our

members), with camera in hand. The expression on the calf’s

faces seemed to be saying, she’s getting ready to tangle with

“big daddy”. When next we saw Dee, she reported that just as

she had squatted down to take a picture she heard a passer by

say, “Little lady, you obviously ain’t from Texas are you”. Later in

the day we enjoyed watching the people walking and running up

the “Big Rock”, at Enchanted Rock, State Natural Area. We

stopped for lunch at the Limestone Grill in Lampasas where we

had another great meal and some fabulous desserts. After several

more miles of picturesque landscapes filled with bluebonnets,

and colorful wildflowers we turned and headed for home.

Thank you Ted and Bonnie Glover for another great tour

and a special thank you to our Texas Rangers and the Texas

Parks and Wildlife Department for their kindness and the true

love of the work they do.

Autocross & Time Trial

Rule Changes

By Bill Miller

There are three changes that will affect Maverick Region

competitive driving events beginning this season. These

changes are relatively minor, but will help to clarify some

issues that have come up in the past. If you have any questions or

would like clarification regarding these rules, please contact the

event chairs. Event chair for the Time Trial series is Chuck

Machala, while Bill Miller is the Autocross chair. Contact information

can be found on page 4 of Slipstream.

Rule changes are as follows:

1. Top-10 Times for TT/AX events published in Slipstream

will be Porsche-only.

2. The class in which you take a first timed run at an event

becomes your Top Driver index class for that event.

3. MRPCA Class Progression Points for Tire Series will be

calculated for all vehicles based on the 2004 PCRs. A table

is added to our rules to make this easy.

Generous Hope Shelter Gift From DE Workers

By Joe McGlohen

This entire thing began to develop a couple of months ago

when our stepsister German car (BMW) club’s track events

chairman called me and asked if we could help with a DE

the last weekend in March, in much the same way as we have in

the past. He wanted to rent our equipment. He wanted me to staff

and manage the course and; Oh yeah, he wanted me to do BBQ

Saturday PM.

This year he was going to do things a little different, with

Bryan Henderson as Chief Driving Instructor. That was a good

thing because I work with Bryan a lot, and I knew what he

needed and we have developed a very comfortable working

relationship. It also meant we would be more closely following

the processes and policies to which I am accustomed at our own

events. Most of the instructors would be the folks I see at PCA

DE’s hosted by MR/PCA LSR/PCA, and HCR/PCA, with a few

additional new (to me) BMW hot shoes added for flavor.

Unfortunately his **UNCHANGEABLE DATE** was on the

same weekend as a Major SCCA race in College Station. Most of

our usual heavily experienced SCCA folks would be at the race.

Fortunately, our usual control, and several experienced SCCA

workers were available. I proposed to Bob Manini that I would

recruit some of my PCA friends that I had trained and/or those

who had worked events in the past to fill in for the missing SCCA

Folks. I suggested that we would offer them the choice of

donating their pay to the Hope Shelter or being paid. Bob

Manini generously agreed, so I put out a call for help on the

MRPCA Yahoo List. I had lots of takers. A small number of us

who are not at the high point of our financial history (read as

24

Photo by Kevin Hardison

ME!) didn’t have any choice but to take the money and run. In

my case a good portion of it went to buy gasoline for three round

trips to the ranch, and a couple of trips to the club’s storage shed

to pickup and return the rented equipment. But most of the

PCA folk (and some of the SCCA folk as well) asked that their pay

be donated. We could not have made this event come off safely

without our SCCA friends. We really needed their in-depth

experience to enhance our own folks’ abilities to ensure a safe

event. Every one who worked the event, if they donated their pay

or not, gave a little something to Hope. The combined team of

folks made it all possible. Many thanks go out to all the Flag and

Comm team, including grid. Here is the entire list of those who

helped make this possible: Darron Shaffer, Jim Roccasano, Tom

Cannon, Dave Frick, Jean Frick, Jan Mayo, Susanna Kavanaugh,

Joel Nannis, Ray Luedecke, Terry Lancy, Pat Benson, David

Attanasio, Terry Giroux, Mary Coney, Peter Fehn, Jack Wales, Bob

Green Sr., and Terry Black.

The BMW Club regularly supports events like our TMS autocrosses.

The weekend went pretty smoothly. There was a little mist

early Saturday and a brief rain shower at the end of the lunch

break on Sunday. Other than a few instances where the BMW’s

decided to deposit large quantities of some slippery fluid I not

familiar with all over the fast line (some one told me it is some

mixture of H20 and Ethylene Glycol, but I have no idea what it is

used for . . . ). Two instances were due to failure of some that I am

told is intended to contain and transport the mystery liquid

around the car. Another instance was due to the failure of a

pump I have been told is used to encourage the movement of the

mystery liquid. We did see a Black Porsche (of a type rumored to

contain similar mysterious fluids) be brought back from the Far

end of the track on a tow strap, and it also had a hose failure, but

it seems this hose has some real function of value, transporting

compressed air from the Turbocharger to the engine induction.

The damage done to the schedule was quickly repaired by the

excellent work of Jan Mayo as Grid Empress, and Mary Coney as

Control. We were soon back on time, and the only time I recall

any group getting shorted any track time was when we had a two

radios go down at once, one of which was a hard key to transmit

that virtually shutdown the radio net and so I had to close the

track. That nasty radio is on its way to the manufacturer’s repair

depot, and we just bought a new battery for every radio in the

fleet (Batteries are the primary mode of radio failure.). It seems

that the NiMH batteries do not develop memory, but they do

have a finite number of cycles they can make.

Thanks again to all who worked the event. And my hat is off

to the Instructors as well. I saw LOTS of smiling students.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. Value

Trust's inception date is 4/16/82. The investment return and principal

value of the fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares,

when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Calculations assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains

distributions. Performance would have been lower if fees had not

been waived in various periods. The S&P 500 index is based on

common stock prices, including reinvestment of dividends and

capital gains distributions, and is generally considered representative

of the U.S. stock market. Source: Lipper Inc.
