Road Ramblings

by Keith Olcha, Maverick Region President

Automobile Magazine, in their

October issue, has a feature

called “The 100 Coolest Cars.” I

guess they chose to call them cool cars

as opposed to best selling, fastest,

most-popular, or greatest because they

wanted to show that the list was

subjective and based on an opinion

poll of their editors and writers. They

appear to describe cool as that rare combination of

looks, performance, and style that affect our

emotional side and leave those lasting impressions

from our youth or other experiences with these cars.

These were road cars by the way, not racing cars, in

case you are wondering.

To give you a flavor of this list right off the bat,

the #1 car is the 1963-1967 Corvette Sting Ray.

Number 35 is the Ferrari 275 GTB (which was the

predecessor to the Daytona). Number 100 is the

VW Microbus. Anyone can deliver any of those

three to my garage and they can stay. There are

many cool cars in between that make up the 100,

and personally, except for the “Duke’s of Hazard”

General Lee at number 58 (and a few others), I like

the list.

editor Jean Jennings formerly Jean Lindamood, and

sister of Paul Liniert). But that’s my problem not

yours…

So is there a Porsche that is not cool? Tony

Soprano called the Boxster a “Porsche that wears

panties.” I’m guessing that was a reference to it’s

perceived inferiority to the 911 or to higher horsepower

cars. This comment; from a fat guy who

drives a Suburban through New Jersey and kills

people for a living? 914s weren’t that cool when

they were new, and now they are a cult car. Same

with 928s. What about the first 924s? Now there

is a topic for debate. They may not have been cool

before and I’m not so sure they are now. RS

Americas were nothing until about 5 years ago, and

now they are cool. Everyone wants a 1978-1989 911

Carrera or SC, even non-Porschephiles.

So what do I think the coolest Porsche is? None

of the above. I think the coolest Baddest Porsche is

the 1983-1989 911 (930) Turbo. Wide hips, fender

flares, Fuchs wheels, awesome rear spoiler. Killer

flat-six sound. Make mine a 1989 US version with

the 5-speed, Guards Red, blasting Sammy Hagar’s

“I can’t drive 55.” I love it.

... blasting Sammy Hagar’s

“I can’t drive 55” ...

So how did the Porsches fare? Quite well, about

as well as Ferrari did. The first Porsche to appear is

ranked number 53, and it is the iconic 356. The

next at number 48 was the 959. Number 43 is the

550 Spyder made famous by James Dean. James

(never Jimmy- he’s the sausage guy) drove his 550

into oblivion in 1955. Can you imagine what it

must have been like to be James Dean? Four movies

and you’re as big as Elvis? I’d take either of their

hair. Number 40 was the Carrera GT. The last

Porsche made it all the way down to number 2

behind the Corvette. It is just called “The Porsche

911.” They chose the generic 911 name because

they said the car line was homogeneous and it’s too

hard to pick the best vintage 911, as there were so

many years of great ones. Then they stole a line

from Bruce Anderson and said the newest 911

(Type 997) is probably the best, since each new

model series is better than the last.

So there you have it, one magazine’s view of

how Porsches stack up against the coolest cars of all

time. Personally, I’m not a big fan of Automobile

Magazine. I get it because my kids have magazine

fund-raisers and I can get it cheap and the

company donates a percentage back to the school. I

don’t like David E. Davis Jr. (and now his flunky

Curves Ahead

by Matt Platts, Slipstream Editor

Wow, what a month this has been for me!

In the last 30 days, I’ve moved into a

new house, saw the Grand Canyon for

the first time, broke up with my girlfriend, and

spent four days in the hospital with an intestinal

infection that was originally diagnosed as

appendicitis. The week that was spent mostly in

the hospital was the week that I had set aside to

work on this issue of Slipstream. Needless to say, that didn’t

happen, that’s the key reason that you are receiving this issue quite

a bit later than we had intended.

I hope you enjoyed last month’s issue, the variety of articles

was very diverse and I think made good reading. This month

contains some good reading as well, but it’s a little more focused

on our typical region activities. Wendy Shoffit wrote two articles

about two different post-Parade events that many Maverick

Region members were able to participate in. Then, we have articles

about the September Autocross and Time Trial weekend at

Mineral Wells. Kevin Hardison took some great pictures (as usual),

so be sure to check them out. You will also find the 2nd article in a

series about restoring an early 911T by Charles Freeman. Charles

really gets his hands dirty this time!

Maverick Minutes

by Mimi Spreen

The September board meeting was held on

Tuesday, September 7, at Boardwalk Porsche.

In attendance were Bob Knight, Wendy and

Jasmine Shoffit, Noby Takahashi, Joe McGlohen,

Mike Brodigan, Bill Miller, Lanean Hughes,

Mimi Spreen, and Dennis Chamberlain. The

meeting was called to order at 6:49pm.

Mike Brodigan - Advertising invoices went

out with Wendy's help. One person dropped, 2 ads reduced in size

and 3 new ads were added.

Dennis Chamberlain- Happy Hour at Champps had sort of a

low turnout, possible because of weather. September’s Happy

Hour is at Bahama Breeze, Thursday, the 9th at 6:30PM. October’s

Happy Hour will be at Speed Zone on the 14th at 6:30PM.

Bill Miller - Time Trial had 27 people and went well,

Autocross had 45 people. Working on getting trophies ordered.

Motion made to give $2000.00 for Autocross and Time Trial

awards for year end. Motion seconded and passed. Two more

Autocrosses and 1 more Time Trial are left for this year. Timing

and scoring chair for 2005 needs to be filled.

Joe McGlohen - Nominating committee has four

candidates in mind for the four Board members who will be

leaving their positions at the end of this year.

Bob Knight - We still have money

Advertising Editor of Slipstream. Teri has been a valuable member

of the Slipstream team for quite some time now, but she has

accepted a role on the National Parade Staff and wants to focus

more on that. Thanks for all your hard work Teri! Replacing Teri

will be Dennis Chamberlain of Happy Hour fame. Along with his

other Happy Hour responsibilities, Dennis has also been making

the Happy Hour ad that you see in Slipstream for several months.

You’ll see more of his artistic abilities as he takes over the design of

our region’s event ads, beginning with the Founders Day ad on

page 3.

Speaking of Founders Day, the date is quickly approaching.

This year’s celebration will be on Friday, November 12th. The

location chosen for this year’s party is the centrally located

Hackberry Country Club in Irving and will feature live musical

entertainment as well as the always-popular silent auction. Check

the ad on page 3 and make sure to get your RSVP in to Mimi

Spreen by the deadline, which is November 8th.

Finally, make sure to check out the Maverick Region 2005 club

officer’s ballot on page 19. You can mail your ballot to our club

secretary, Mimi Spreen, or you can vote in-person at the Founders

Day Banquet. As they have been saying quite a bit on TV lately,

make sure to get out and vote!

Wendy Shoffit - The Parade picture CD and DVD are still

available for sale $15.00 for CD and $20.00 for DVD. We have

raised about $1000.00 for Hope.

Wendy as Teri Davis - Teri has accepted a National Parade

position and feels she'll be too busy in that position to hold any

position in Maverick. She suggested taking a year off from any

Rallyies, since they weren't very well attended anyway. Will discuss

Rally situation with next year's president. Copy machine bought

from Parade will be at Wendy's. She will either keep for Maverick

Region or buy from Club and use personally.

Wendy as Matt Platts - Needs regular columns from people

and photos for various events.

Lanean Hughes - Hope update: Looking at lot and doing soil

analysis. Will go to architect to do drawing and have available for

people to look at during Founder's Day social.

Mimi Spreen - Founder's Day is FRIDAY, November 12 at

Hackberry Country Club, 1801 Royal Lane, Irving.

Noby Takahashi - Insurance is being taken care of for 2 DE's

and 2 Tours.

Noby as Keith Olcha - Need a list of chair positions needing

to be filled.

Motion made to adjourn meeting at 7:54 pm. Motion

seconded and passed.

Happy Hour at Champps Americana

Photo by Dennis Chamberlain

by Dennis Chamberlain

Happy Hour Crew: Jay Easley,

Tinker Edwards and Dennis Chamberlain

We returned to

Champps, an

A d d i s o n

sports bar/restaurant,

on Thursday, August

19. It’s a perfect place

to be during the

Olympics, and purely

by chance, we have

ended up at Champps

during both the winter

and the summer

Olympics. During that last winter Olympics, we

watched the big screens as Michelle Kwan stumbled

in the final ice-skating competition. This time, we got

to watch Carly

Patterson winning

Bob Lewis and Alan Lage

the gymnastics

competition while

we discussed the

extraordinary

balance of our

Porsche cars.

Perhaps the

best thing about

Champps is the

fact that its menu

is as diverse as

our membership. There is something for everybody. I

think the same could be said for our Maverick

Region, wouldn’t you?

We had some new members, including John

Strakele (98 C4S) and James Weber (02 911 Turbo).

And everyone was also delighted to see Alan Lage,

who was in town for a visit. Franck Parachini also

(1991 911) paid us a visit.

On October 14, we’ll be eating hamburgers and

driving the little cars at Speed Zone, at Walnut Hill

and I35. Hope to see you there.

Post Parade Social at Big Tom’s BBQ

by Wendy Shoffit

“How are you enjoying all your free time now

that Parade is over?”

After the laughter subsides, I reply, “Are you kidding?”

I’ve had this conversation countless times since July

11th. Since that day, I’ve been helping finalize the Parade

accounting, mailing goodie bags, shirts, and name badges,

compiling the Parade photos for CD and DVD project I

decided to do for charity, recording them, printing them,

and mailing them…personally being involved with the

school’s PTO, being Jasmine’s Girl Scout leader and her

room mom… shuttling her to gymnastics and horseback

riding lessons and so on… WHAT free time?

... a “Big Tom” with a New York Accent ...

Alas, there have been some moments of bliss since the

big event. One such time was the dinner we had at Big

Tom’s BBQ. Yeah, I know it was way back at the end of July,

but it was great and needs to be heralded! It’s not surprising

that I’d never been there before…Watauga and 377

aren’t exactly on my way home.

Owner, Frank Labriola, had contacted Keith Olcha

back in April, offering up his restaurant for a Maverick

Region event. He and his wife, Kim, are transplanted PCA

members straight from Long Island. I’d never heard a “Big

Tom” with a New York accent, but Frank assured me that

the original Tom was a southerner who had a good thing

going. And boy was he right!

A handful of us (about 20) were there to enjoy the outstanding

barbeque and more side dishes than you can

imagine. Frank opened up especially for us, since the

restaurant isn’t normally open on Saturday nights. He

treated us like royalty. He had loads of beef, chicken,

sausage, and ribs ready for us. While french fries weren’t

originally in the plan, Frank quickly fired up the fryer and

started some for the kids…even some of the grown up

ones. To finish things off, he had homemade peach cobbler

for dessert.

Although the sunshine through the big pane window

made it a little toasty inside, the warm welcome and sunny

hospitality helped us keep our cool. We talked Parade,

shared stories, oogled the trophies, and had a generally

grand time.

I think I’ll change my route home…

Time Trial #5 at Mineral Wells

Photo by Kevin Hardison

By Jim Hedderick

My son David and I enjoyed the 350 mile drive to

Mineral Wells from Houston on Friday. We made

it to the new Best Western, easily the nicest place

we have ever stayed in Mineral Wells, just before 10 PM.

We didn’t actually see the dawn Saturday because of

the heavy cloud cover and rain, but were happy to meet

up with some Maverick Region members in the lobby

around 7 AM. We checked the weather RADAR on the

computer in the lobby and saw that the rain was going to

be with us for most of the morning. We headed out to

Walmart for plastic bags and a new rain suit for #1 son,

having forgotten his, and then to the site where we

scoped out a nice spot that wasn’t flooding and dropped

the trailer.

Soon, we were being invited to breakfast by our

Maverick Region hosts to a place down the road in Cool,

Texas. Off we went in a parade of Porsches and tow vehicles

to wait out the rain. The first spot was closed, but

someone knew of another out of the way place a few

miles further, so away we went. Breakfast never tasted so

good and the conversation was interesting. Impromptu

social events are often more fun than planned ones. After

a few hours relaxing, we headed back out to the track.

Once back on site, the competitors were offered the

option of a full event ending late or a shortened event

ending at the normal time. Most of us were ready to hang

out all day, so it was decided to do a full event with 2 sets

of 1+3 laps split by a working session followed by a final

set of 1+4 laps. By the time the course was set up and the

drivers meeting finished, most of the rain had stopped.

We figured the one set of 4 laps later in the day would be

faster than the ones we were about to do in the full wet.

Around noon the first car headed out on track and

sloshed through the course. As expected, the times for the

first two sets of runs were not that spectacular with some

of the usual suspects leading the time charts – Chuck

Machala, James Shoffit, and David Hedderick among

them. A dry line never came in for the first group and the

track was soon turned over to the second group.

This second group also had some fast drivers who

immediately put some distance between themselves and

Joel Nannis running a very soggy grid for the morning Time Trial laps.

the whole first run group in the ever-improving conditions,

Cody Sears, Mark Steele, and Rick Randall among

the fastest. A fully dry line developed part way through

the second set of 3 runs and Richard Diller ventured out

for the first time in his nicely prepared 911S. He immediately

went to the head of the class as he threatened to

break into the 80-second mark while the rest were just

looking for the lower 80’s.

After the second set of 3 runs, a fully dry line had

developed. A decision was made to leave the second

group out for their set of 4 laps before doing the worker

change, thus saving about 20 minutes. Those of us in the

first run group hoped the rain would hold off until we

also had a chance to run in the dry, which it did.

... the first car headed out on the track and

sloshed through the course ...

In these dry (on line, anyway) conditions, Richard

Diller solidified his overall and class 16M lead as he broke

into the 79 second bracket. Mark Steele in a 993 put up

the second best time for the moment with a very fast

83.19 to take the win in 13M. Those of us working on

course were becoming a little worried as our best times in

most cases were in the high 80’s. Everybody in this run

group looked fast as even the street tire classes, led by

Tom Snodgrass, broke into the 87 second bracket. This

was faster than most of the first group competitors and

Tom handily won S6M in his Yellow Boxster.

After the worker change, the first group got their only

shot at a dry track and had to get it done. Some fast times

were immediately laid down as Cody Sears put up an 85

second run, fastest of all 914’s, to take 2M. Chuck

Machala in a Boxster ran a low 83 second run to take the

6M class lead and nip 13M winner Mark Steele by 7/100

of a second. James Shoffit in his 911 SC and David

Hedderick in a Boxster were among the last cars out in

the heat and both also laid down 83 second runs. James

took 5M with an 83.6 and David had a low 83.1 to nip

Chuck in 6M by just 7/1000 of a second.

In other classes, Mike Lockas took 3M in a 944,

Wendy Shoffit had the top ladies time of the day and won

5L in a 911 SC, with Shelly Burbank taking S6L in a 911.

Darron Shaffer won 7M in a Boxster S and Bryan Bell

won 9M in a 996. Rounding out the 914 classes, Kevin

Hardison won 10M and Joel Nannis 11M. The final two

social events of the day were setting up the next day’s AX

course followed by dinner at Mineral Wells’ finest Italian

Restaurant.

We had a great time and really enjoyed the Maverick

Region hospitality. We look forward to coming back

again next year and would like to invite everyone to come

on down to the next Lone Star Region October 10th AX

at Gulf Greyhound Park. You can find more information

Autocross #5 at Mineral Wells

By Robyn Howard

Well known to anyone who has attended a drivers

meeting at a Maverick Region autocross, some

lucky person will get to write an article for

Slipstream. I was that lucky person at the Aug. 29th autocross

at Mineral Wells. This was going to be my first autocross.

What makes your first autocross special is the range of emotions

experienced. In the morning I felt anxious as I walked

Chuck Machala’s interpretation of the European rally “The

Spa”. This course was huge.

... By the end of the day, I wished I could

have four more runs ...

My run group was assigned to work first. This gave me

plenty of time to crank up the tension. Soon my group’s

turn to drive arrived. As I waited for my instructor Mike

Lockas to finish his runs, the butterflies in my stomach were

doing loops. The two main fears I had were that I would get

lost on this huge course, and my time would be embarrassingly

slow.

After the first set of runs my emotion went to exhilaration.

This is something I’m going to like a lot. Yes, my first

run was slow, but by the last run I had taken 30 seconds off

my time. I did miss a gate resulting in a DNF and a cone

penalty. Did I push the car as hard as I could? Not even

close. Did I feel I needed to drive beyond my skill? No. I felt

I had found a reason to have fun with a bunch a great people.

I have to give Mike credit, he hung in with me and

helped whittle down my run times. I can still hear him, turn

right, turn left, go faster, go faster.

By the end of the day, I wished I could have four more

runs. If you have not been to an autocross, you need to go

and see how much fun they are. I know I have a lot to learn

about my car and I plan to attend the autocross schools

next year. But just from this one autocross I have a new

respect for my 944’s capabilities. I have to give Mike Lockas

my gratitude for his excellent instruction and patience. Also

thanks to the many people who offered to help me. I’m

looking forward to the next autocross and see many more

in my future.

To change the subject a bit, you may have heard that I

am now the Maverick Region “Goodie Store” person. If you

would like to order something from the Goodie Store, just

send me an email at Robyn.Howard@century21.com. I’ll be

happy to let you know what types of goodies we have, and

a list of which events I will be attending to show off (and

sell!) our very cool Maverick Region paraphernalia.

Cold Elvis

by Hugh Kelly

Most of you don't know me, but I teach a night class at the local

college. Four more than 3 years now, twice a week I take the same

route at the same time. Part of this route is a farm/market road to

a state highway.At the intersection of the two, I stop, look left and right, then

turn left onto the highway. This is in the town of Cold, Texas

(the name has been changed to preserve anonymity). Cold doesn't have a

grocery, stoplight, or library. But, Cold does have a police officer, whom I'd

never had the pleasure of meeting. We'll call him Officer Cold. I get to see

Officer Cold regularly, sitting with radar behind an old gas station sign. The

posted speed on the highway is 70 mph but, reduces to 40 mph in Cold. I

haven't done my investigation yet, but Cold is probably about 3/4 mile in

length.

Well, Wednesday evening I stop, I look, wait for a west bound car, see

Officer Cold across the street, turn left (east) and head down the highway.

About a mile out of town, here comes Officer Cold. I slow my 944 Turbo to

about 55 and pull onto the shoulder to let Officer Cold pass, but he pulls in

behind me. Surprise on my face! This must be some kind of mistake. Then

I think... “No way he spotted my inspection being out, what could this be

for? I bet he sees my inspection now, damn!”

I shut the car down, and watch in the left mirror as Officer Cold

approaches. What's this? It's not Officer Cold at all, IT’S ELVIS PRESLEY!

The chubby Elvis, but Elvis, none the less. The police uniform is too tight.

Fortunately, no sequins. Coming from under some sort of multi-color ball

cap is an enormous amount of pitch black hair. Obviously, the pomp

doesn't stay up under that hat. Then I realize it's not only head hair as I spot

the biggest,bushy black chops I've ever seen.They're almost to his chin! And

just to top things off, Elvis sunglasses! Yes, it is true, I've been pulled over by

Elvis Presley!

Naturally, as he approaches I have several thoughts... candid camera?

Some new TV gag show? But why Cold? Should I acknowledge him as

Officer Presley,Officer Cold,or just officer? I suspect he's going to ask for my

autograph... me having just been quoted in the Dallas paper a couple of

weeks ago, maybe that's it... I should probably ask for his, too...you understand,so

he doesn't feel bad.But,what if Elvis doesn't want to be recognized!

We all know Elvis has been on the lam for many years, he might like this

continued anonymity in Cold. If this is the case and I acknowledge him as

Elvis, he might write me up for more violations. What to do????

I decide to pretend I don't notice.He does in fact ask for my autograph,

he even has a special autograph book for me to sign. He took down

everything about me and my Porsche... I guess so he doesn't forget. Turns

out he must be a Porsche fan, he took pictures of my Porsche with his Elvis

radar gun from the time I stopped until I got out of range, outside town. He

was very impressed... he said my Porsche accelerates very fast. In fact, Elvis

said it accelerates too fast. He said it accelerated to 64 mph before I got out

of town. Elvis also wrote I should carry an insurance card, that had not

already expired.

Later,I arrive at my class and speak to one of my students.This student

is a 16-year veteran of the local police department. I told him I got a ticket

from Elvis Presley... he laughed and said, "so you drive to school through

Cold." Turns out Elvis is famous in Police circles throughout parts of Texas.

By day, Officer Cold is famous for his ticket writing talents and by night, he

tours the local clubs as Elvis Presley!

This is one ticket we will be fighting! Surely, a judge will believe a

middle-aged, over-weight, Professional Engineer, part-time college

instructor over a small town police officer that thinks he's Elvis. Don't we

have pills for that now?

Early 911 Restoration: No. 2

by Charles Freeman

Welcome back. Here I am again to tell you how my

’73.5 911 T Targa restoration is going. I am deep

into what I will find out is the easy part. I removed

all of the carpet and interior padding. I am not sure if the

carpet was ever replaced but it sure smelled bad. It had

somewhat of a cross between mildew and wet dog. Since I

wasn’t using the carpet again I just ripped it out, then

removed the retaining trim later. I was now in for a rude

awakening. All of the little trim screws on the doorsill had

some surface rust. Should be easy to remove, right? Most of

the screws either snapped off or stripped out when I tried to

unscrew them. Here is the first purchase of tools, a lot of drill

bits. I had to drill each of them out. Under the carpet was a

sort of padding I think made out of horsehair impregnated

with an asphalt-like substance. What a mess! Some of the

underpadding was in good condition so I put it into the attic.

Turns out to be a great home for field mice.

... I then broke 3 sets of E-Z out

screw removers ...

E-Z out screw removers trying to extract the remaining

threads. More tools to the rescue.

Since the inside was pretty much done I wanted to

tackle the exterior. As I looked at the cracked black paint on

the hood and fenders I just couldn’t resist finding out what

was underneath. I investigated several techniques to remove

the paint. Chemical dipping the entire car would require

removal of every attached component from the car (I mean

everything)! Then I would have to get a trailer to haul it to

the facility (I don’t even have a truck). The next option is

sandblasting. This requires somewhat less amount of

teardown but I would still have to tow it to the facility. The

final option was chemical stripping in my garage and hand

sanding. I opted for this route as the price was right.

I then worked on removing the seats. Time and rust

had taken their toll on the seats and all of the bolts. In my

initial inspection of the car I found a rust hole in the

floorpan under the drivers seat. It turns out there was a

matching hole going through the seat vinyl and frame right

above the hole in the floorpan. I am guessing that the Targa

top was leaking in this location which led to these holes.

The frame of the driver’s seat was pretty rusted, so I just

tore the seat apart. Literally, I had to break the seat into

pieces as I couldn’t get to the bolts holding it in place. I had

to cut the seat frame with a jig saw then grab with a

vise-grip and jerk the seat apart. The passenger side was just

as bad. This took me at least 10 hours worth of work, just

to remove two seats. I threw both of them in the trash. Now

I wish I had saved the headrests as I might have been able

to sell them, oh well. Trying to remove the tracks for the

seats was another problem. The bolts were rusted and the

allen wrench stripped the heads out. I was using a cheap set

of allen wrenches from a wholesale company. Most every

time I use them they just round over. I have since purchased

a good set of Craftsman and they have held fine, but cost

twice as much. Anyway, I drilled out each of the bolts and

tried to extract them with an E-Z out. I then broke 3 sets of

I purchased a gallon of aircraft stripper from a

local paint company for $30. I proceeded to apply the toxic

goo to the hood (while wearing a respirator and heavy rubber

gloves). After a few minutes I could see the paint bubbling

up on the surface. It was a fairly simple matter of

scraping the paint off with a spatula. This left large blobs of

paint and stripper on the floor of my garage. The process

works very well but the 911 does not have flat panels so

using a flat spatula left paint on the curved sections. Thus I

had to follow this up with a lot of sanding. More tools and

materials to the rescue (sandpaper and abrasive disks).

Next time; more teardown fun!

Post Parade Weekend at Possom Kingdom Lake

by Wendy Shoffit

Have you ever been to Possum Kingdom Lake? If you

haven’t, you need to add it to your list of vacation

destinations. It’s about 75 miles west of Fort Worth, but

well worth the drive. To quote the Possum Kingdom Chamber

of Commerce website (www.possumkingdomlake.com),

“If you're looking for a haven from the hurry and stress of

life, come enjoy the beautiful outdoors at Possum Kingdom

Lake. With more than 65 miles of crystal clear blue water,

and a variety of activities and fishing, Possum Kingdom has

developed the reputation of being one of the best get away

spots in all of the Southwest. Wake up to spectacular sunrises

from one of our many lodges, stay in a cozy cabin or a

luxury condo, or just pitch a tent at one of our campsites.”

Bambina and Jan Mayo were victorious and were treated to

a really interesting calculator/alarm clock thingy with a

“robotic” opening mechanism. After a few minutes of

sabotaging Jan’s prize to have the alarm ring at 4 AM, I felt

vindicated. How did you sleep that night, Jan? *wink* *wink*

Shortly after our quiz, we all drove down to the boat

dock where Teri had set up a party boat rental. Although

Bill and Nancy Dugan couldn’t spend the whole weekend

with us, they came out with their son, Eric, so that Bill

could be our boat captain. The plan was for us to get on the

boat and drive it out to this little lunch spot on the lake.

Well, a slight miscommunication, an unexpected rain

storm, and a tardy previous rental group changed our plans

... If you’re looking for a haven from the

hurry and stress of life ...

Photo by Wendy Shoffit

A small group of us chose this special location to spend

a weekend in early August (7th – 8th). Several years ago,

Teri Davis had chosen the Cliffs Resort at Possum Kingdom

for a fun summer Maverick Region “Round Up” weekend.

We had so much fun that we decided it would be the

perfect getaway after Parade. We were lucky that Teri was

willing to put in some overtime to help arrange this for us.

Rather than organize loads of activities like she did last

time (including a concours and a rally), Teri chose a much

more relaxing schedule this time. Starting Friday night, we

had a very casual meet and greet at the Resort pool. Once

the sun went down, Teri broke out the glow-in-the-dark

neon bracelets and necklaces. Who would have thought

that we could have so much fun with a little light stick?

Maybe some of us needed this break more than we thought!

As part of our weekend package, we were treated on

Saturday morning to a delightful breakfast buffet to get

us going for the day. Soon after breakfast, Charlie Davis,

counterpart to Teri, challenged us with a group tech quiz,

covering PCA and Maverick Region history trivia. Thank

goodness it was a group format, because otherwise I would

have *really* stunk! As it was, the team of Alan and Linda

Charlie Davis trying out a new hairdo

Wendy & Jasmine Shoffit rest on the pier with Myra Sutton

somewhat. Instead of boating to lunch, we drove around

the lake to get there. The burgers there were great, but I

wouldn’t recommend ordering the enchiladas, as they took

a full 15 minutes more to be served. If you want to order

fried pickles, make sure you call ahead of time to make sure

they’re not out (*sniffle*). The company was grand,

though, and helped make the rest of the waiting go by

quicker. A short drive back to the boat dock and we were

ready to go.

Captain Bill took 2 groups across and around the lake

to Hell’s Gate, where we enjoyed swimming off the boat in

incredibly clear water. I think most of Bill’s enjoyment

came from crossing other boats’ wakes, splashing enough

lake water on his passengers to keep us cool. That WAS the

intention, wasn’t it, Bill? Those of us who weren’t on the

boat had plenty of other options. James and Jasmine

decided to rent a kayak for awhile and saw the lake at a

little slower speed. Dave & Jean Frick’s grandson, Wayne,

had a blast swimming in the area near the beach. Eric also

had fun renting a jet ski. Perhaps the most fun for me was

the watermelon seed spitting contest. Yeah, I know I’m a

little twisted…

After our water fun, it was back to the resort for their

seafood buffet. Alan Bambina seemed to be in heaven with

the Lobster, shrimp, and various choices of fish. Although I

don’t care for seafood in general, I still found plenty to fill

me up, including some tasty prime rib. Oh yeah… and the

catfish I tried wasn’t too bad!

22


Sunday morning came with everyone feeling more

relaxed. We had plenty of time to pack up, check out, and

enjoy the vistas one more time. James, Jasmine, and I

drove around the area a little while and saw some of the

spectacular homes nestled in the trees. Later that morning,

Charlie led us on an interesting (and spirited) drive from

the resort to a little café in Strawn where we enjoyed our

final meal together as a group.

Thanks so much to Teri and Charlie for their hard work

putting this weekend together. Also thanks to Bill and

Nancy for making the drive in their car to drive the boat for

us. After the weekend, we were relaxed and ready to take on

the next challenge.
