The Inside Track

by Rocky Johnson, the Maverick Region President

It's been fun! Have there been some challenges -- yes,

but overall a lot more positives than negatives. The

past two years as president have flown by. I was

lucky, the club was in great shape when I came to office

and it's in great shape today. The newly elected and

reelected officers - James Shoffit, president, Mark

Gluck, vice-president, Charlie Davis, secretary and Bob

Kuykendall, treasurer, bring a wealth of personal,

professional and Maverick experience to the board. I'm confident the

Maverick region will continue to be a leader in PCA, both regionally

and nationally.

As most of you who attend any of our events know, they tend to be

well organized, first class and fun, no matter whether social or driving

oriented. This is because we are blessed with absolutely great people that

serve as the real driving force, many times, behind the scenes. If I tried to

say thank you, in writing, to everyone that has contributed to running the

club and our events over the past two years, it would take a special edition

of Slipstream. In addition to all the folks that have served as chairs,

committee heads and workers, there have been others that have served as

informal sounding boards. Thanks to you, as well.

One thing is for sure, as I enjoy our events in the future, I will do so

with a much greater appreciation for all the hard work required to make

things look so easy. When the occasional, small hiccup does occur, it's

important to remember that none of the volunteers are purposely trying to

inconvenience or upset you.

It's funny, one of the most difficult tasks for me, as president, has

been writing this monthly article. It has been a good news/bad news

proposition. The good news is that nobody tells you what to write about -

- the bad news is that nobody tells you what to write about! Fortunately, my

article is in the front of the magazine. That way, if I put you to sleep, you've

got the great stuff in the rest of the magazine with which to recover.

As I said at the start, it has been fun. If you have been sitting on the

sidelines, you ought to jump in and try to get more active in helping run

things. You might find out you really enjoy it.

Maverick Minutes

by Jan MayoWe

must be getting towards the end of the year,

there were no comments about waiting for

me to finish or my mouth full of cookies or

anything. Rocky just started at the far end of the table

with Kevin Hardison. Kevin had a prototype of the

photo calendar he's been working on that he will have

for sale through the Goodie Store (Christy’s all ears).

He's also working on making it possible to have some color covers for

Slipstream again (opened up MY ears). So, all you hot-shot photog's

out there start thinking of how nice your car would look on a color cover

and plan your settings.

Tracey Gross has 100 people rsvp'd for Founders Day. Linda

Bambina and Charlie will be taking photos. Tracey is quite happy with

her "lovely" committee helpers, Lisa Steele, Wendy Shoffit & myself. She

notes the team effort it has taken to get everything accomplished. Tracey

requested a deposit for On The Border for the food for the Holiday Party

at the Campbells. We are catering the party this year so everyone can be

a guest. Desserts and toys for Hope children will be welcome. Finally,

starting to look ahead past November and December, Tracey has talked

with some new members who live near her about hosting the New

Member Party in January. Further into 2007 she's looking at a few more

wine tasting parties as they were all well attended and asked if we

thought another Murder Mystery event would be fun. "Yes", so that's

on the list as well as many of the standard events, except Baseball -

not happening.

As Tracey was taking a breath Rocky moved on to Christy

Dominick, our new Goodie Store chair. She hasn't had a whole lot of

activity with on-line orders but is continuing to work with Treasurer Jeff

on getting PayPal set up. That lead to some discussion on the PayPal

email notifications and James reported that he has a team of his best

people working on it as we speak.

Denny Payne has been working with Steve Boyd on getting the web

site activity transferred over and says that Steve has been very helpful.

He's asking that event chairs proactively tell him of their events and

dates and if there are any changes. He can make it all happen but needs

to know what and when.

The Happy Hour at Speed Zone drew 30 people tho only a few of

them drove the cars. Dennis was happy with a few rounds of miniature

golf and went on and on about their great pizza. December’s Happy

Hour will be at iFratelli's in Irving on MacArthur at 635.

Mark Gluck has insurance coverage for the East Texas tour. Jeff says

we still have money, while busily writing checks all evening.

Teri Davis wants Rallies put on the Calendar Committee's agenda

and asked if we wanted to Rally to the New Member Party like we did

last year. James says the calendar committee consists of himself and Teri

so it looks like her wish will happen. James will also combine Maverick's

calendar with other zone happenings.

The Truxster is repaired, inspected and is ready for another year. It

even idles nicely with no back fires. This year there will be no photo

production delays for Founders’ Day as he and Linda will be mailing the

photos rather than try to print them right then and there, with an address

sheet to ensure we have their most up to date address. He and Teri just

returned from the 914 SIG Ramble in Fort Smith, Ark. It was sponsored

by Cimarron Region this year and was heavily tour oriented. He wants

to suggest the SIG's promote rallying or at least rallying in tour form.

Bryan Bell has a Autocross/Time Trial schedule for 2007. He has

been asked to bring back the School 104 for a little more experienced

drivers but thinks Mineral Wells may be too expensive if only a few show

up. He reports that Tom Snodgrass is ready to pass on the School Chair

position. There was some discussion about combining the Ladies/Teens

school day with the general populace and only having a one day school

for everyone. Again, the consensus was that Ladies and Teens deserve

their own day and then will be welcome to return the next day for the

general school. Rocky wanted to know if anyone knew the 2007 Club

Race schedule as he was concerned that many of our instructors might

be there and not available. That brought on a flurry of electronic

activity as James and Mark, Denny, and others pulled out their

blackberries, blueberries and cranberries to see who could locate the

information quickest.

Undaunted, Bryan continued on with the School 104 and how/who

to include, what should be the experience level criteria. Rocky stepped

in again with a question on the practice of supplying loaner helmets and

the region's culpability if something happened and an injury resulted.

He asked about having another release waiver or if the standing one

would cover that. Bryan will consult our zone rep and/or legal counsel.

A-HA, we have Club Race dates, but I didn't write down who spoke

up first. It appears the Club Race schedule will not interfere with

Bryan's suggested school dates. While going down the list of dates, Teri

interjected the Parade registration dates for everyone to keep in mind

and that she will do a reminder for the website.

Taking BACK the floor once again, Bryan finished by saying that he

will initiate a $5 discount for AX/TT registrations done on-line. Which

brought a mutter from Wendy, "Fine, now that your wife is helping with

registration, you give an incentive for doing it on-line." "Yup."

We've worked our way around to my side of the table now, so as

Secretary I report that I will have voting ballots at Founder's Day for the

election of officers as well as the bylaws revisions. Wendy has a list ("oh

boy, oh boy") of the equipment I will be needing to take over Slipstream

(fits of giggles and whoopee's). As you can see she is giddy with delight

at passing over the duties of Editorship. She believes everything I need

can be found for $550 which is moved, seconded and voting passes.

Wendy continues with a report on the Charity Autocross which

we believe Autobahn was to have sponsored. Unfortunately with all of

our attention diverted with Lanean's illness no one followed up on this.

Without their sponsorship income the event was a loss so only the

additional gifts would be given to Hope. Bryan Bell will follow up on

this. Wendy and a cast of wonderful friends have finished taking care of

Lanean's furniture and belongings making another two-truck-load

delivery to Hope. Her Porsche files will be sent to the National

PCA office.

Wendy has her first version Founder's Day program available for

additions, corrections and proofing. She needs articles for Slipstream

and will revise the ski trip ad to reflect the addition of the "Snow 2000

Helmet" requirement.

Michael Wingfield reports that the October DE had 163 drivers

thinking that it was the highest attended DE. For the first time in awhile

they had to turn away a half-dozen green students.

8


Joe has a $300 check for the loan of our radios, which per the

President's meeting a couple months ago, will not happen any more.

Rocky happily announces the last Board Meeting of 2006 will be

December 5 and Tracey wants to know if everyone is happy staying at

Hackberry. This was arranged by Lanean since she was a member, but

the management has been working with Tracey and is willing to

continue to let us meet there. Everyone is pleased with this and the

meeting starts to come to a close.

But first, I humbly ask Charlie, pending final outcome of the vote,

if he would be so kind to start the Secretary job with the December meeting

since I will be starting the Editor job at that time. He agrees.

Then Wendy mentions that the November Slipstream will mail in a

few days due to the heroic effort of Kevin Hardison and Ussery Printing.

[Rounds of Applause]

Then a question was raised about anyone overseeing the accounting

practices of our treasurer, not that our treasurer is questionable, but an

unfortunate and very expensive action in another organization

prompted a question of our practices. In the past there has been a

member audit of the years' work, but that apparently hasn't happened in

several years. More discussion about the wisdom of a member audit

versus an outside firm. Having already put my pen and paper away

thinking the meeting was over 3 paragraphs ago, I'm going on memory

here thinking that Dennis Chamberlain was going to look into one of his

cronies doing this.

People have started wandering around at this point and we, as

Tracey's lovely committee still have some Founder's Day details to

discuss, so I'm calling the meeting officially over.

From The Driver’s Seat

by Wendy Shoffit, Slipstream Managing Editor

You may or may not have heard that this is my

last issue as Managing Editor of Slipstream. Jan

Mayo has graciously agreed to take over my

post. I’ve worked off and on with Slipstream since

1999. James reminded me that the first year we were

“co-editors.” That was the only way I would agree to

do it. As it turned out, he didn’t do much, but that

was okay with me. Once I got into it, I really got into it. Through

these 8 years there have been a few other editors, but I’ve stayed on

as part of the staff. This next year will be no different. I’ve promised

Jan I won’t be going away, so I can help get her transitioned into the

position. I’m going to be around in other areas of the club, as well.

For one, now that James is president (again), I’ll be helping him a

little there. Like it or hate it, I’m not going anywhere. *grin* I’m just

going to help differently.

Anyway, I realized this past month that in my articles last month

about Lanean, I never gave the reason for her passing. This led to

some very confused people and I apologize for that. While Lanean

had been diagnosed with lung cancer in the latter part of August, her

chemotherapy treatments unfortunately caused her to come down

with diverticulitis (a severe condition of the intestinal tract). It was

the diverticulitis that eventually caused an internal perforation,

leading to her death. Day to day her family and friends are getting

back to normal, but we’ll always be affected by her.

One of the ways many of our lives’ have changed is through our

association with the Hope Shelter. We’ve been working extremely

hard to get them ready to move in. Originally, the mandatory move

in date was mid-November, but once the state officials realized that

their employees would really like to have a Thanksgiving break, they

pushed it back to December 1. As of today, they’re almost there!

The rooms have been furnished and decorated, the electricity is

FINALLY on, and the plumbing is mostly done. Everything else is

either contracted out or on its way. The new facility is absoluely

fabulous! Next month we should have some awesome pictures of the

finished project. You will be amazed when you see it. There will be a

dedication ceremony of sorts the first part of the year, but the date

still has not been set. Look for it online on the mrpca yahoo groups

email list. If you’re not signed up but still want to be invited, send me

an email and we’ll make sure you get the date and time information.

Don’t put the shelter too far from your thoughts, though, as they will

continue to need our support in the future.

Missing from this issue is full coverage of Founders’ Day. There

was just so much other stuff to cover, we figured we’d wait until next

month to do it justice. Besides, then it can be Jan’s job... not mine!

*wink* Suffice it to say, we had a great time. The Polynesian dancers

put on a great performance, we raised a lot of money for the shelter,

and got some wonderful raffle and silent auction prizes. The

autocross, time trial, rally, and club race awards were also given with

much aplomb. Congratulations to Tracey Gross, this year’s recipient

of the Richard Selcer award! From my point of view, you deserve it!

Premier Wine Tasting

by Brad Nace and Mia Williams

On Saturday, October 21st, 2006, nearly forty Maverick

Region members and their guests turned out for a

wine tasting at Premier Wines of Plano. Great turnout

considering when we first appeared, we were two of six in number.

For those of us in this predicament, we became the lucky recipients

of a bottomless glass. (There really is something to be said about

being the early bird!) The event quickly filled in attendance but that

did not stop a few people, like Luke Edson, from appearing late (and

actually finding a seat).

Our host, James Winkler, gave a nice presentation of the

various wines for the evening, including “Jouillian,” a wine not

regularly part of their tastings. Approximately 14 or 15 types of

wines and champagnes, from white to red to peach, were sampled.

That ensured each of us would find a few of our favorites from

Bordeaux, Cabernet, Merlot to Zinfandel. Macaroni Grill provided

hors d'oeuvres, including pasta, lasagna, capri salad, and

accompanied by - you guessed it, vino!

Aware that many of our members had attended the memorial

service for Lanean Hughes, James Winkler offered a toast to her and

a moment of silence recognizing Lanean and her contributions.

In ending the evening, our host mentioned one bottle of

particular interest. Following September 11, 2001, the store

obtained a very old and very rare bottle of Baron Philippe de

Rothschild recovered from the bottom of the World Trade Center.

Its price tag approached that of a small car. I assume it is safe to

say that we all wanted to sample this wine. For those who might

be interested, it was there the last time I checked.

In conclusion, we really enjoyed ourselves, the food, the wine,

the conversations and the knowledge that the club will continue

having social events. Don't miss the next!

Drivers’ Education at MotorSport Ranch

by Chuck McCoy, 1983 White 944

Ihad been looking forward to this DE for about 3 months. Working

corners at a couple of Maverick Region events earlier this year earned

me discount certificates toward a DE and this was it. What a perfect

fall weekend it turned out to be.

When I got to MSR it was still dark and pretty chilly. While I was

changing tires in the dark, Tracy Locke was beside me putting brand new

Victoracers on his 944 Turbo. He was in the green group with me. After

registration, drivers’ meeting, and novice drivers’ meeting we had time

for a final check of our cars before time to report to grid.

My instructor, Dan Gage, met me at grid and went over my car. We

talked about my previous experience and what we would do during the

first set. I was already impressed. I told Dan my goal was to learn the line

on this huge 3.1 mile course and demonstrate enough skills and car

control to get promoted to the blue group when he felt I was ready.

After my first two sessions, Dan took me out with him in his 944

Turbo race prepared car in the red group. That gave me a look at the line

I was trying to consistently run at pretty much race speed. WOW, what a

ride! Dan was great. He was so positive and patient as I would hit a

particular turn right then blow the turn in on the next one.

Lunch time and between sets gave us all time to visit and talk about

what we were doing right and wrong amongst ourselves. After that, my

third session Saturday was working on consistency, looking ahead, and

seeing all the corner stations.

On my final run Saturday, it was awesome. Dan was yelling “That's

it, That's it” and it was so much fun words cannot describe. BRING ON

SUNDAY!!

Sunday morning was another perfect day at MSR. Because of the

time change, we had daylight when the track opened. It is so much fun

just visiting with all my autocross and time trial friends and the new

friends I made. Tracy was thrilled with his new tires and I could believe

it. I waved him by at least a couple times over the weekend and he blew

by me like I was sitting still.

I was standing outside the classroom waiting for the novice drivers’

meeting when Dan came up to me and said, “Congratulations, you have

been promoted to the blue group.” Dan already had a blue student, so I

would have a new instructor. He introduced me to Mike Langford. Mike

drives a BMW M3 and is another great person and instructor. Tracy was

also promoted to blue.

Mike and I worked on all the basics the first two sessions. As I got

faster and faster there were some areas I was good at but some sections I

struggled with. After my two morning runs, Mike took me out in his car

to show me the line and braking points in his car. My third session I had

three sections of the track I needed to work on while staying consistent

everywhere else. I made great improvement on 2 of them but was

struggling with the section between stations 6 and 8.

Final session of the day. Mission: Conquer section of track between

workers stations 6 and 8. Mike and I would talk about it all the way

around the course while I would drive the line, at speed, looking ahead

and remembering to check workers stations. As we would near it Mike

would say “wait, wait, turn in now, stay a car width from the left side, now

left parallel to left side. Turn in, brake hard, left turn, gas, gas, gas. Little

after half way through the session Mike said “There, that was it. Did you

feel it?”Well, I guess I didn't because next time around I came in too hot,

started to lose it and after all the instruction I had been given about what

to do I made the rookie mistake of trying to save it. Didn't work. Got to

visit Joe at Black Flag.

To all of you who do DE's, this was probably a boring article and

you say “been there , done that”. To those of you that have never done a

DE, please try it once. You will be hooked. Our Maverick Region has the

best level of instruction and the instructors are awesome. You will learn

to drive you car at its limit in a safe, instructional environment. Dan and

Mike were absolutely great and everyone I talked to had similar feeling

about their instructors.

I want to thank our sponsor, Park Place Porsche. Without their

support, most of us could not afford to have this fun, and the shirts were

awesome, too. Their water hits the spot after 20 min. of track time.

The track photographer, Hart Photography had over 80 pictures of

me on track and they are outstanding. This is not an advertisement for

them but you can look all the proofs online and pick out the pictures of

your car.

To everyone involved, I want to thank you all. It went so smooth and

I understand the challenge without Lanean. I sure missed her running

around on the golf cart like we are all so used to seeing.

It was a perfect weekend, I had more fun than anybody should be

allowed to have and can not wait to do it again. I look forward to seeing

everyone next year. I will beat that durn section of track!

Swap Meet at Zims

by Denny Payne

Since we are now in the off-season, so to speak, for MRPCA

driving events, Christy and I decided to check out the Swap

Meet at Zim's to see what treasures we might find for our

944 that one day will be our track car. It was a beautiful Saturday

morning and when we arrived there was already quite a line of

Porsches parked along the street and a steady stream of folks

sampling the wares.

There was a great variety of stuff displayed, from wheels,

bumpers, and hoods all the way to bins of 911, 914 and 944

parts - some common and some most likely identifiable only by

the most ardent trivia buffs! There were several complete

vehicles for sale as well. We encountered familiar faces from

Autocross and Time Trial and met some new Porsche friends at

the same time.

The icing on the cake? I finally found the elusive intact

header panel that I needed for the 944! After coming up

empty-handed from Ebay, Rennlist, and salvage yards, it's

gratifying to know that your local swap meet can still deliver

the goods!

Thanks to Zims for hosting such a great event!

Congratulations

ALMS Finale Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca

by Bill and Marilyn Stafford

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Laguna

Seca racetrack, and the year couldn't have ended with a better

race. There were more fans present than last year and in an

effort to help support the development of today's youth, the

American Le Mans Series has teamed up with The Salvation Army,

the official charity of the Series, to form a national “Grid Kids”

program. At each of the 10 track venues, the Series hosts 12 - 15

disadvantaged youth from Salvation Army centers at the track,

making them VIPs for the day. They get up-close and personal

sessions with race teams and drivers, have their photos taken, enjoy

lunch and a unique day-in-the-life experience with the drivers.

The ALMS race provided proof that the Audi juggernaut is still

mowing down the opposition in the American Le Mans Series

Prototype (LMP1) class. They are undefeated with 8 class wins this

season alone. The R10 TDI has to be the fastest diesel on the

planet and also the quietest race car ever. Although sewing up the

championship prior to this (including winning Le Mans), they

nevertheless came to pursue a win at Laguna Seca.

The series is beginning to draw an interesting mix of

Prototypes such as the Zytek 06S, Creation CA06/H-01/Judd,

Radical SR9/AER and 2 Lola chassis, the EX257 and the RO5/40

and attracting additional Teams to the mix. Some of these

specialty machines are using older Formula 1 power detuned for

durability but are still on the cutting edge of reality. The sounds are

incredible, but I digress.

During qualifying, the Zytek 06S driven by none other than

Stefan Johansson (103 Formula 1 starts) qualified on the pole in

the car he campaigned in Europe this year and set a new Laguna

Seca track record for LMP 1 in the process. The Audi R10 TDI,

although only qualifying 4th (behind the LMP2 class Porsche RS

Spyder LMP2) had the synthetic blend fuel mileage thing going

their way (90 minutes on a tank of fuel) and like the Tortoise and

the Hare fable, Allan McNish just kept plugging along to the win.

Although the Zytek and the Creation Judd were faster by 0.5

seconds per lap, they could only go about an hour on fuel. Audi

finished 1-2 with the Creation-Judd third. After te race, the

Audi Team Engineer said they only had enough fuel left in the car

at the end for about 1 to 1 1/2 lap.

In the LMP2 class, the Porsche RS Spyder's of Lucas Luhr/

Romain Dumas and Sascha Maassen/Timo Bernhard finished one-

18

Randy Probst leads Tommy Drissi into Turn 8

two in class and Porsche took

the manufacturers title.

Interesting note to the race is

that Luhr closed to McNish

in the Audi LMP1 car for a

while near the end of the

race before spinning at turn

11 going onto the straight.

The Porsches are fast despite

being smaller in displacement.

Third in LMP2 was

the Dyson Lola B06/10/AER

of James Weaver/Chris

Dyson. The Dyson team

announced the retirement of

Weaver after the race ending

his 20 years with the team

and his 30 years of racing.

Bobby Rahal

Weaver had already left the track before the announcement.

In GT1, the two Aston-Martin DB9s (now running with larger

restrictors) challenging the Pratt-Miller Team of Corvette C6-Rs

managed to take 1st and 4th in class. The Corvette's came in

2nd and 3rd which was enough to win the class and drivers'

championships for the year. A-M would have had to finish 1-2 to

tie the series but a tire problem on the Tomas Enge Aston 007 car

put an end to that dream.

Rockenfeller in the Alex Job #23 GT3 RSR

There was some late race excitement in the GT2 class as the

430 GT Ferrari of Mika Salo passed point's leader Jorg

Bergmeisters' Peterson White Lightning Porsche 911 GT3 RSR

with ten minutes remaining in the race to take the win.

Bergmeister, however, took the Drivers Title and the

Manufacturers' title went to Porsche.

In the SPEED world Challenge, Randy Pobst took the GT

championship in his Porsche 911 Cup car by 0.031 seconds. Local

long time racer Lou Gigliotti (Wylie, TX) came in 7th in his C6

Corvette.

Mother’s Day

Memorial Day

www.parkplacetexas.com

In the GT3 Porsche Cup (Dentist, Doctor, Lawyer) event, the

race was shortened to about 10 minutes (from 30), or about 5 laps

due to mass carnage at every corner brought on by marginal

decision making and the Cojones factor. I don't know if there was a

winner, but there was a lot of damage to some very nice Porsches.

No wonder the ALMS put them into a separate race.

Pit Rat Notes:

• Bergmeister won the GARRA Daytona Prototype championship

AND the ALMS GT2 championship this year making him

the first one to win a drivers championship in both series in the

same year.

• Bobby Rahal and David Letterman (R/L Racing) are going

to run a Porsche 997 RSR in next years ALMS series. No word on a

driver, but Rahal was certainly walking (trolling?) the pits all

weekend. Although Rahal admitted to owning 16 “high end” auto

dealerships, he doesn't have a Porsche dealership………..yet.

• Most of the drivers do not know who they will be driving

for next year. Andy Pilgrim said to call him on Christmas Eve as

that is when he usually receives the call to let him know if he is

hired or fired.

• There were 8 former Formula 1 drivers in the event. That's

a lot of expensive sunglasses, not to mention the leather pants

entourage.

• Will Andretti Green Racing, Letterman Rahal and

Fernandez Racing force smaller teams such as Alex Job Racing out

of ALMS? Stay tuned.

We are now building and taking orders for Porsche 924/944's for SCCA, PCA and NASA racing for

the 2007 season.

With the addition of the PCA 944-SPEC (SP1-SP3) series, there is now a greater than ever venue

to economically race these cars. In SCCA, you can have a GT2, GT3, EP, or ITA racer. With PCA,

you can pick from a number of classes, dependent upon your car.

Cars are built from mild to wild, depending upon what class you plan to enter and to what level

you want to participate.

Our experience building and racing Porsches goes back to our 911's in the mid and late 70's,

924's and 944's in the 80's in SCCA, IMSA GTU and Firehawk, PCA in the late and early 80's/90's,

and Speedvision GT, Rolex GT and GT in 2000 up. In addition to the Porsches, we have had a

hand in building five AUDI S4's for the Grand AM Cup, and a couple of AUDI TT's for SCCA.

We can build on our inventory of chassis's, or take yours and develop it into the race car you want.

Get ready for the 2007 season NOW!! We plan to attend and support as many race events for

2007 as our racing schedule will allow.

Arkansas Tour with help from Miss Manners

By Joe Rybarski

Photo by Andy Miller

In today's politically correct times, people are encouraged to

embrace diversity and endeavor to avoid stereotyping those to

whom they may feel superior, especially if this conclusion is

arrived at solely by casual observation. That said, it can be difficult

not to succumb to certain preconceived notions, especially when it

comes to the residents of Arkansas. Amplifying this tendency are

serendipitous moments such as when this author was crossing the

border from Texas to Arkansas. The first thing he saw was a

“Welcome to Arkansas” sign, and ten feet later observed a man

burning trash in his front yard. “Yard” being the politically correct

term for garbage laden weed fest.

The Maverick Region Arkansas Tour has typically featured a

fascinating mix of fabulous roads, great weather, and interesting local

sights and activities. Nonetheless, there are always some

circumstances which just can't be readily addressed by simply relying

on one's own experiences and background. As a service to future

enthusiasts who may want to drive the back roads of Arkansas, the

following exchanges with noted advice columnist Judith Martin

(Miss Manners) may be of benefit.

The group enjoying their time together.

Dear Miss Manners:

I was recently induced to participate in a touring drive of

Arkansas with a number of Porsche enthusiasts. Our first gathering

was in a motel room that held four beds and was occupied by people

who were clearly related to each other: nieces, nephews, brothers,

cousins, mothers, fathers, grandmothers, sons in law, daughters in

law and so on. Although it was difficult to refrain from commenting

on the questionable propriety of this arrangement, I did in fact

accurately identify my partner as my wife. Would it have been more

proper if I had bent the truth in order to fit in and said she was a

kissin' cousin of mine?

Gentle Reader:

Technically, if you believe in the theory of evolution, we are

all cousins (kissin' or otherwise). Miss Manners cannot condone

deception and would suggest that you were proper to identify your

wife as such, but to avoid offending local sensibilities you may have

wanted to add that most of your kin was spoken for before you went

outside the clan. She would like to believe that your associates would

understand, recognizing that Bill Clinton didn't seem to mind if his

“associates” weren't kin, or even from Arkansas.

Clara Lewis (View from Queen Wilhelmina Lodge)

Dear Miss Manners:

On the first leg of our journey, we stopped at a gas station and

were approached by local youths who desired to be photographed

inside of one of our cars, which happened to be a yellow Turbo with

race track mods. Of course “we” agreed since only one car would be

lost if the key accidentally turned to start and the car accidentally

found its way to a foreign country. In retrospect, I wonder if there

is a more proper way to share our Porsche enthusiasm while

maintaining a fair level of security.

Gentle Reader:

Don't worry too much. It is widely known that the brakes on the

vehicle in question make a Def Leppard concert sound like a

Gregorian chant. If you brake it, they (the police) will come.

Conversely, that infernal squealing might sound like love makin' in

the barnyard to the locals, so it might make for an effective cover,

allowing the vehicle to blend right in. But, at 10 miles to the gallon,

the car won't get too far anyway and should make a fine parts car

when you get it back.

Dear Miss Manners:

The first night our group spent together was in Eureka Springs.

Dinner was at a restaurant that allowed us to bring our own

libations. Some folks were seen drinking out of glasses rather than

just passing the jug and sharing like normal people. Was I wrong to

have just nodded my head in disgust or should I have throwed my

pitchfork at 'em?

Gentle Reader:

In Arkansas, an open display of violence at dinner is never

acceptable. That's what the dessert course is for.

Rest stop near Jasper AR

Gentle Reader:

Whenever I am confronted by someone holding a recently

deceased turkey that has been heaved out of an airplane, I always

respond with,“Say, that sure is a fine looking fowl there. If the tailbone

hasn't been broken in the fall, it is sure that your next wish will be

granted! Maybe you could wish to have some of your teeth grow

back!” As to permitting a dead-turkey holder to be photographed in a

Porsche, I would allow it in the name of peaceful coexistence, but try

to use the car with a red interior in case the beast has sprung a leak.

Dear Miss Manners:

The next day we drove through a little town called Yellville. We

hadn't planned it but we arrived just in time for their annual festival,

a two-day affair featuring a “turkey drop.” This event involves

heaving a live wild turkey from the cockpit of single engine aircraft

flying over town at about 500 feet elevation. The excitement builds

as the bird kind of glides/plummets to the ground. Any attendee of

the festival who captures the bird alive, wounded or expired, is

revered and allowed to keep the beast for further disposition. While

PETA (Porsche drivers for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) frowns

on the abuse of the animals in this way, what is the proper way to

congratulate or acknowledge the successful acquisition of the prized

bird when confronted by a person holding a dead turkey? Also, how

might one graciously respond to a request by a dead-turkey holder

to be photographed in a Porsche (a repeating theme on this trip)?

Yellville girl with a prized turkey.

Jim Chadwick dazzling the crowd in the Turkey Trot.

Dear Miss Manners:

A parade was held as part of the Yellville festival and two of our

cars drove in it but did not pay the entry fee. The executive board of

our club feels that they should be banned for life for committing this

fraud, but they're nice guys and were only trying to get the heck out

of town (albeit the slow way) to avoid the risk of a turkey collision,

commonly excluded from most car insurance policies. Is there a

proper way to plead our case?

Gentle Reader:

Tell the board they are members of PETA (Parade Enthusiasts

Touring Arkansas) and qualify for a sponsorship exemption.

Dear Miss Manners:

On the last day of our drive, our tour leaders made us drive

through heavy rain and blinding fog. Yet at one of our dinners we had

honored them with praise and valuable gifts for the countless hours

they spent planning and coordinating our tours over the years.

Although these tours were always full of fun, great roads and new

experiences, is there any way to tactfully express our rage at their

inability to change the weather?

Gentle Reader:

Sign 'em up for the Corvette club.

Happy Hour at Speed Zone / Pizza House

by Dennis Chamberlain

It was a moderate and slightly somber crowd at first, but as soon

as a couple groups of new members appeared, they proceeded

to cheer everyone up. It was sort of a role reversal kind of thing.

New and recent members Gregg Hutmacher, Gayle and Luanne

Linke, effervescent Dossie Post and Russell Milcent, and the

ebullient Luke Edson really cheered us up with their attendance

and fresh outlook on things. And speaking of Russell Milcent, he is

moving here from Florida in order to be with Dossie Post. One

look at her picture below and you'll understand.

The weather was mild, but

despite that, there weren't many

drivers - few were in the mood.

Then, later in the evening, I was

starving and James Shoffit must

have noticed the look on my face

because he said “want some pizza”?

He said that I wasn't going to

believe it, but that it was some of

the best pizza he'd had in a long

time. I didn't believe him, but then

again, I've never had a slice of pizza

that I didn't like. I had to eat three

large slices to be certain, but yes, it

Greg Hufmacher was incredible! Each slice had

about a four inch wad of cheese

on top, for starters. So from

now on, we're highlighting the

food at Speed Zone (and not

the understaffed kitchen and

bar).

Our December happy hour

should be a festive one,

coming on December 21.

It's at a new place for us -

i Fratelli's, at 7750 North

MacArthur, just south of

I-635. Hope to see you there!

Welcome, New Members!

You have just joined one of the best and most active PCA Regions

in the country! Some clubs focus solely on social events, while others

focus on just show and shine concours events. Maverick Region is a

club that focuses on providing our members with the tools necessary

to have the ultimate in driving experiences.

You will notice that our region has many Time Trials,

Autocrosses, and Drivers’ Education (DE) events (in addition to a

yearly Club Race). This has been the spirit of the region for quite some

time. We have some of the finest instructors in the country. Make sure

you take full advantage of the driving experiences we have to offer.

Racing is not ALL we focus on, though. If racing doesn’t suit you,

we have monthly happy hours, three monthly lunch gatherings, regular

dinner socials, frequent driving tours on some fabulous roads in

and around Texas, driving rallies (fun for the whole family), and regular

opportunities to support our perpetual charity, the Hope Shelter.

If we don’t have what you’re looking for, just ask us... we might

just add something extra to the calendar.

Please also feel free to share article ideas (and submissions)

to editor@mavpca.org. We’d love to hear from you!
