My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Slipstream Managing Editor

Once again, dear readers, I’m going to revisit

my rant on upcoming events. There’s so

much to pick from! Real soon now there’s a

Murrrder Mystery dinner – Aug 4. Tracey has said

that everyone has so much fun at these. There are

always the lunches, and don’t forget the Happy

Hours. See you at Razzoos??

Some of my favorite events are Teri’s rallies. This next one on

Aug 18 is a walking rally in and around the exhibits of the Nasher.

Not only will this be great fun, but you can earn some culture

points at the same time.

Keep a watch right here (or close by, anyway) for the next

upcoming concours event, tips on how to prepare your car for that

award wWinning shine, and more on the search for people looking

for that thrill of being a JUDGE!

Want a long weekend in the heart of American History?

Consider the PCA Escape to Chantilly, Virginia. It even sounds

romantic. More culture points along with some fun driving and

wonderful Porsche people – What could be better?

Periodically our advertisors host an event and August 18 is a

Service Event at Park Place. Take a look at their ad on pg 6 for the

list of activities they have planned.

Want more info? It’s all right here, just read on!

Catch my Draft

by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President

Iwas thinking a lot about Parade (our Porsche

Club National Convention) and how we can

encourage Mavericks to go out and try it. I

was trying to figure out what exactly the draw was

for those of us that are so addicted to the national

event and how we can share that with other

members of the club who may not have tried it

yet. But it isn’t really ONE thing that I look forward

to. It is the combination of things that all roll together to

make each Parade a unique and wonderful experience.

First of all there are the national level competitions. Wendy

and I love competing (some of you may have already gathered

that!) and doing so against Porsche nuts from around the country

multiplies our fun. Even when we don’t do well, we have a

great time trying. And you might be surprised at how well you

do! My very first Parade, I ended up with a trophy in Tech Quiz,

and I had no idea I even knew anything!

Another reason we enjoy Parade is the friends we get to see

there. You add new people to your circle of friends every year. It

is nice catching up with them, seeing what cars

they have now, how their kids have grown, and

what they have been up to the past year.

But one of the things Wendy and I look forward

to the most is the drive out there. I know lots

of people will disagree with us, but we thoroughly

enjoyed our 3,600 miles of towing a Porsche

this year. Each Parade is in a different location so

we get to drive on new roads, see new sights, and

spend time together in a completely different way.

No phones, no email, no job distractions, no

kitchen to clean – time to clear your head and

think, and talk about all those things you wish

you had time to discuss.

Not to mention that on the way there we took

Jasmine to Carlsbad Caverns, and on the way back

we visited the Grand Canyon and Canyon de

Chelly.

But why would you, the first timer, be interested

in going?

One of the neat things that new Parade attendees

enjoy is meeting Peter Porsche. He is the son

of Ferry, and has attended over 20 of the recent

Parades. He is very friendly, and is always smiling

and signing autographs and posing for pictures.

He is very approachable and loves Parade, Porsche

Club members, and Mavericks in particular!

Another reason you might want to go is to try

something new. Even if you went to the Fort

Worth Parade in 2004, going to an out-of-town

Parade is a completely different experience. It is

like taking a French class versus studying in

France for a semester. The immersion with all the

like-minded people is amazing.

We get to stay at fabulous hotels, at reasonable costs, and

every trip up and down the elevator brings you more people with

Porsches. And the areas we visit are all unique and have a flavor all

their own. You can spend hours (or days) exploring the surrounding

region, finding all kinds of wonderful places to shop and eat.

Now, I understand Parade isn’t for everyone. Not everyone

can be as passionate about these silly cars as I am. And not everyone

wants to spend a week or more of their vacation time doing

this type of thing. But if any of this sounded interesting to you, it

is time to start planning. Make sure you have allocated some vacation

days, and start looking at your driving routes to Charlotte,

NC, now (or you can even fly in – we have quite a few people do

that as well). And kids are MORE than welcome at Parade – it

makes a fantastic family vacation, as there is plenty for kids of all

ages to do. And if you have any questions at all, I think you know

how to reach me. Call or email any time!

Come on out and join the fun! See you soon!

Maverick Minutes

Maverick Region board meeting on July

10, 2007

In attendance: James Shoffit, Mark Gluck,

Bob Kuykendall, Denny Payne, Lisa Steele,

Tracey Gross, Andrea Bell, Bryan Bell, Joel

Nannis, Charlie Davis, Teri Davis, Travis

Howard, Clay Perrine, Jan Mayo, & Wendy Shoffit. James called

the meeting to order at 7:00 PM.

James reported that Maverick will host the National

Winter Board Meeting on Feb 2-3, 2008. No information yet on

where or the exact schedule.

Eagle’s Canyon has had a setback. The recent rains have

damaged the paving and repaving is underway. Three of the

turns will be made faster and safer. Bryan Henderson is the

Chief Driving Instructor at Eagle’s Canyon.

James reported (with help from Joel) that Keith Olcha was

working on sponsorship. He then discussed the need for “keeper”

trophies for the Selcer Award recipients. Finally, James

(again) asked for volunteers for the Addison, Bedford, and

Plano lunches. We need members who will attend and be contacts

for these events.

Wendy gave a lengthy and excellent Parade report. I’ll not

report all that, as it will be in the next issue. I WILL report that

MR received the Public Service Award for our efforts getting

the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House constructed.

Jan asked if we want to continue sponsoring the Kid’s

Events at Parades. We decided that it has to be the decision of

the Parade organizers, as they might have a “paying” sponsor.

She also asked for “stuff” for Slipstream. Lisa agreed to write an

article about the Father’s Day Picnic.

Joel reported we have 1210 members at the moment. He

recently sent out 35 renewal letters… no responses yet.

Bob reported that he and Dennis had talked with Bob

Knight regarding the pending audit of our financial books,

who questioned the wisdom of doing this. His belief was that

a $1000 audit is not worth much. We discussed this and decided

that since most of our current receipts are via PayPal

(directly to the bank account) and checks, with very little cash

involved, that we would take Bob Knight’s advice. Besides, we

trust our treasurer. He also told us that the recent Club Race

lost over $10,000 which was due primarily to a 40% drop in

Club Racer attendance.

Denny, subbing for Christy, said that the logo hats sold

well at the recent autocross. Denny, subbing for Denny, asked

for more Picture of the Week submissions.

Lisa led a discussion of Slipstream rates. It’s been a few

years since we’ve bumped them. We have a waiting list of advertisers

and our circulation is higher. Production costs continue

to rise. Lisa agreed to get with Keith Olcha to devise a consistent

policy for advertisers and sponsors regarding Slipstream

ads. Ocassionally our major sponsors ask for specific ad locations.

Bryan reported that TimeTrial #5 and Autocross #5 were

well attended, in spite of the threat of rain. Water donations

totaling $65 were given to Hope. The last official TT/AX events

will be on September 15-16 at Mineral Wells, then the Charity

AX on Oct 14th at TMS. He reported that we had decided to

hold the Concours on the same day as the autocross. We have

not yet decided on the schedule or the venue for the Concours.

There was a minor injury at AX #5 during the worker change

so we decided it would be a good thing to purchase a new first

aid kit for the Truxster.

Mark reported that we did have insurance for the above

autocross…and for all other events too.

Tracey agreed that the Father’s Day Picnic was good. She

has scheduled the Post-Parade Dinner at Saltgrass Steakhouse

in Grapevine. She reported that we have an offer to host the

Holiday Party in Ft. Worth again, but we hope to have an alternate

location near Dallas, as alternating seems to be the norm.

Any Dallas County volunteers?

Charlie requested that he not be listed as Club

Photographer in Slipstream, but rather as the AX/TT Rules

Committee Chair. This prompted several other changes to Pg 4.

Teri, performing her proofreading duties in arrears, noted

Yokohama Tire Tech Winner

by Doug Molny

Last month I received a call from our friends and newlyweds

Mark and Monda Hanna asking me to join them for a tech

session at Discount Tire. I must admit I have not been to a

tech session for a couple of years but the mention of a raffle for a set

of Yokohama tires was too much to keep me away. Somehow I

talked my wife into going with me. Now, Melinda is not one who

would normally sit in on a meeting at a tire store with a bunch of

guys talking about camber, caster, tire temps, etc. However, I told

her that Mark and Monda were going and that I just had a feeling

we needed to go. I thought we would hook up for dinner with them

after the session. The session went on for a couple of hours and

turned out to be very informative with several executives from

Yokohama there as well as Colby McGehee, the Texas Rep, who is a

knowledgeable young man who could answer our questions about

racing and tires.

They asked us to write our names down on paper and threw

them into a hat for door prizes. I won a coffee mug and Melinda

won something else small. Then all the names were placed back

into the hat for the grand prize and Melinda's name was pulled

out again. Man, was I lucky my wife did not need tires for her

Lexus! She was happy to pass the gift to me for my 1995 993 Cab,

which was desperate for new tires. Discount Tire was very nice to

accommodate me and I now have a set of Yokohamas Avain

Sports. Believe me they are great tires - excellent dry and wet traction.

This included mounting, balancing, and the guys at the

store even cleaned the wheels! This has to be the best gift I could

have imagined and I, of course, gave my friend Mark the coffee

mug. I could see in his eyes he wanted the tires and I hope next

time he wins.

Yokohama also sent me a Porsche Factory DVD of the 356

being built from scratch, which must be from the very early

1950's. A very cool film. I even thought I spotted a 912 somewhere

in the film (maybe a prototype). I will have some copies

made. By the way, I need to thank Mark Hanna for calling me and

inviting me to the tech session.

Thanks to Discount Tire for the set of tires and for sponsoring

a great event.

Discount Tire Manager, Todd, congratulating Doug

Maverick Minutes Cont.

there were two “meeings” in the current calendar. She reported

that the rally school had eight cars, made $20.40 profit, and

produced a winner at Parade.

Travis thanked James for completing the autocross results.

He also complemented the course designer of the last autocross

(Joel) who did it with only five pylons!

Clay attended because he has agreed to be the 2008

Autocross Chair. He had some suggestions for changes to the

rules. Charlie explained that as the Autocross Chair he will

automatically be on the Rules Committee. One of his key

points was increasing the number of runs above 5. Clay will

start scheduling AX events as soon as the track events are scheduled.

James adjourned the meeting at 9:12 PM.

From the Tech Q&A - 928

by John Veninger - 928 Tech Advisor

Question: This vehicle has been in storage for over 10 years

and just recently restored to running condition. The rear

quarter panels appear to have warped from time and I

would like to find out what options are available to rectify the problem.

The material over the panels are still in great shape (no cracking).

Answer: I know of three options to solve the rear warped panel

issue. The first is the least labor intensive; buy a pair of good

used ones. The second option is to use epoxy resin and glass

cloth to fix the warped area. The epoxy will soak into the fiberboard

and make it stiffer to prevent future warping. The last option is to

rivet a 2” wide strip of metal the full length of the panel on the

underside as close to the edge as possible. This will straighten out

most of the warping.

If you would like to read more tech questions and answers like

this one, go to www.pca.org and click on “Tech Q&A.” Select the

car model you are looking for and then the Classification of

question. From there, click on the Subject you want and read to

your heart’s desire. Feel free to submit your own question to have

answered. These experts are amazing!

A Newbie’s First Rally School

by Peg Kierstead

When my husband, Steve, and I (two brand new members

of the PCA’s Maverick Region) arrived at the Hackberry

Country Club for the June Rally School, we knew we

were in a good place. Long-time members and other newbies

were all welcoming and pleasant people.

During a

lunch of

chicken salad

sandwiches

and fresh

fruit, rally

mistress Teri

Davis got

down to

business. As

she went

Teri Davis diagraming an intersection through her

detailed

review of General Instructions, Supplemental GI’s, the glossary,

and the pink sheet we found ourselves lost in a flurry of papers,

but we relaxed when Teri assured us it’s a game and it’s about

having fun.

Getting into our Cayman and lining up for the start had a

calming effect, and I felt a thrill as I counted down the seconds

to our start time. (I must add “Note to Newbie: basic rules of

safety still apply.” We almost pulled through a stop sign without

realizing cross traffic did not stop.)

It was fun working our way through the transit zone and

leg one; we looked for road signs, remembered notes, and compared

our time against the instructions. New phrases and concepts

rolled off our tongues: CAST, notes, counting pauses, “Is

this a T?” We arrived at Checkpoint One in good time, and then

it all fell apart. There was a road we couldn’t find, despite two

attempts, and we just drove back to the country club.

There we found a lively discussion in progress. A poll was

taken: “Did you find Belt Line?” A strange mantra was heard:

“ONLY ONLY ONLY.” (This refers to a lane sign with three

arrows describing the only way each lane could turn. Many

people never saw it; apparently the group found a trap Teri hadn’t

intended.) We newbies also learned an important fact:

checkpoints are not indicated in the instructions.

Then the rally mistress returned, recapped

the discussion of misses and problems, and put

the whole thing in focus. We learned where we

had gone wrong and that we weren’t the only

ones fooled.

Steve and I left the rally glowing with the

aftereffects of time well-spent, happy to have

met some nice people and to have challenged

ourselves with a new activity. I feel an obsession

coming on.

My First Porsche Club Article

by Grant A. Gosler

Greetings, Porsche fans. A quick introduction should be in order here.

My name is Grant Austin Gosler. Some of you from various track days

might have seen me lurking about and in turn quickly hidden your

daughters of age and valuables. I’m the greasy unkempt guy that leaves motor

oil on the jukebox buttons.

crate loose on a cargo ship deck in a terrific storm. But like many things in a

small town that teenaged boys are drawn to, the Mustang’s looks would grow

on you, especially with a bottle of Boone’s Farm. It was an acceptable

machine for the circumstances.

But wait a second now. I am not all beer cans and gimme hats here. It

turns out my mother lives in Europe, in The Netherlands to be exact. I spent

several summers escaping college life sleazing around Western Europe on

trains. For those who might not understand how a pancake flat, sub sea level

country known for its hash, hookers and Heineken can spark any semblance

of driving passion, may I direct your attention to a location a few hundred

miles to the south east. Nestled amongst the trees is - what would first appear

to be a dyslexic concrete tapeworm doing its best impression of the letter “D”

- The Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit. This track is a public road for periods

of time. Anyone with a bit of spare cash and some wheels can brave its

ribbony lengths at their own risk. It’s a great track in that it is excessively long;

it is filled with traffic, and feels as wide as a sidewalk at speed.

It was here that I made new German acquaintances in the BMW 2002

Tii and the Porsche/VW 914. One of these cars offered upright saloon seating,

complete with ample headroom with a greenhouse of glass. The 2002

was the type of car one could drive on track with zeal. Amazing, too, is that

it would easily cart three of your best mates all the way to St. Jerome’s Pub in

the winding brick throat of Den Haag.

The other car made me feel like I was sitting on the floor with a mental

lawnmower engine chasing me about. This car was a real teeth rattler. This

914 cockpit featured a slim dashboard with hardly room for a drink, and forget

about leaning that seat back at all. The little 914 was track savvy enough,

even with near solid rock suspension components and a curious wafting fuel

odor. Yet, in every day life, this machine was game for cobblestone bouncing

into the city Centrum after a bag of frites at Polleke.

Thus, I would return to the States with a new respect for curves, apexes

and the idea that turning cars can be as fun as making them go in a straight

line. Now I needed a car that would properly entertain my new driving philosophy.

Acquiring a 914 or 2002 was turning out to become a difficult task.

These are great cars, but they both suffer from being a tad on the rare side.

They are also the types of cars that benefit from much fiddling under the

hood. The few candidates I found needed immediate attention. I began to

wonder if there was something out there with stellar handling, acceptable

looks, and affordable to boot? Was there a car for me that did not use a fuel

delivery system similar to the one powering Ivanhoe’s horse?

Enter the Mazda Mx5 Miata. Upon mention of this car, I usually prepare

myself for comments containing the words “chick car” or “hair dryer.”

The Miata’s halo effect is one of the only downsides to the car. Power may be

a problem for some, but that is what the aftermarket is for. Soon enough I

had the tiny roadster packed with go fast goodies. Supercharged induction is

just one highlight in that long line of Miata products. I even bought a 1999

Sport to use as a stocker. I drove my Miata through college and for a few years

after. The Miata experience was really tremendous, but being a self doubting

social sheep type I could not continue trying to live down the image assigned

to me by the masses. From here on out I could only do what every red blooded

American with low self esteem, long work hours, and disposable income

would do, I decided to exercise my right as a consumer.

This time around I would seek out an entirely new level of machine. I

wanted to combine and congeal some of my favorite vehicular ideals into one

car. The basic idea of the BMW M3 could possibly evoke the spirit of a

2002Tii with practical power and poise, so naturally this was a great candi-

Don’t go backing away yet, I am gainfully employed as an artist for a

video game company. With the illusion of vagrancy dispelled I can focus on

my recent opportunity to compose an article for this publication. I must

start off by admitting I do not own a Porsche.

I have been a general sports car fan for much of my life, and Porsches

have always been one of my very favorite automobile marques. Functional

Teutonic skin stretched over championship winning guts is a combination

fit for even his holiness the Great Lizard Pope. On top of that, Porsche has

always been a

true individual

in the business

of fun cars.

These cars are

often noted for

such features as

focused interiors,

and bizarre

pop up headlights, resembling Kermit the Frog trying to wire his house on

a budget. To this day I still see hound’s tooth overlaid upon my vision due

to retinal damage incurred from a pair of Porsche seats. This is not a negative

slant in any way, as I often fancy myself as possessing my own share of

“unique” qualities. Considering the fact that I am afraid of the dark, cannot

tell time on an analog clock, and style my sideburns after a werewolf, one

might see I am in hardly the position to throw stones. So, you may ask, if I

have such a fraternal connection to this car why do I not own one? Why have

I shown up to the track lately in a swoopy, American monstrosity? I do have

the answer for all this, in a tidy, written format that amazingly resembles an

article. I was thinking that since I wanted to compose an article for this very

magazine, I could actuate 2 valves with a single camshaft.

At this point you might be thinking that this article is nothing more

than a stream of consciousness rant. You might even want to roll this publication

up and fire it at my home, tied to a ballista bolt ….on fire. But I urge

you to think about what you are doing, and preserve the section containing

the paid advertisements. And about those ballista bolts, you can find me at

the following address: 1060 W Addison St. Chicago, IL 60613

My racing interests began long ago with my involvement in the White

Trash Stoplight Derby League operating on the streets of many Texas small

towns. I further proved my mettle driving in the Good Ole Boy Dirt Road

Rally on gravel strewn back roads. We even had mailboxes instead of cones

along the race course. In those days the 302 Fox platform Mustang was the

car of choice. Stinky, square, and balanced like a blacksmith’s hammer, the

only redeeming quality of this car was the lumping big V8. We could make

power in this engine as easily as we could produce spit-wads in detention.

The styling, braking, and handling could further be compared to an overseas

14


date. On the other hand, my test drives of the Boxster, Cayman and the

microscopic Lotus Elise brought back memories of a 914 all grown up. The

Elise especially won me over with its soundtrack of road debris enjoyed from

such a low position within the already short car.

If only I could somehow get a Miata and an old Mustang to snuggle

up and produce some kind of unholy offspring. With the right genetic mix,

I might breed a sleek handling rear driver with an enormous torque biased

V8. And possibly the car would endow me with a bit of “shed-cred” to keep

my hulking, good old boy relatives from beating me up. And that’s when I

remembered something. I can recall a host of roaring plastic doorstops from

many of my track days, zooming past me. I still can still see clearly the four

red eyes disappearing down the straights. Could a Corvette really have the

genitalia compensation power I have heard so much about? Does confidence

and happiness come in six liter doses? I can assure you yes it does indeed. The

Corvette is like a heavy dose of lap time Viagra. I have traded my ham hands

and my lead foot for a Burt Reynolds mask with matching Saturn Five rocket

booster underwear. I like this car so much my only planned modifications

are a “Dixie Song” horn and a curious reciprocating red light that zigs horizontally

between the headlamps. I suppose this car appeals to two important

facets of my personality like a Frosted Mini Wheats commercial. The torque

laden V8 appeals to the macho bubba in me while my sensitive art poofter

side loves to toy with endless grip and balance.

Father’s Day - Rain or Shine!

by Lisa Steele

Many people probably thought that the Father’s Day social was cancelled due to

rain, rain, and more rain, but we actually had a wonderful time with approximately

35ish people. This year we met at the BEAUTIFUL home of the Bell

Family. Their house is very unique with something like 12 exterior doors, lots of windows,

ponds (ask Andrea and Bryan what they find in those ponds), and a very open

floor plan. I could never use the right words to describe the gorgeous view of natural

landscape that surrounds their home. Once everyone had the grand tour, you could not

resist the aroma from the chocolate fountain Andrea set up in the kitchen…we all nibbled

on chocolate covered strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels, bananas, cookies, and

whatever else you wanted to experiment with.

Conner, the youngest member of the Bell family, opened his rather large bedroom

to the other kiddos that came. The kids were very anxious to get in the swimming

pool but mother-nature was not being

very accommodating, so Conner had

games to play and some origami to make.

Once the grill got

fired up by Grill Master

Bryan Bell, everyone

got a plate and started

filling it with the various

side dishes brought

by all…the most popular

dish seem to be the

Conner starts the splashing

raman noodle salad

made by Christy Dominick…yummy! Of course, the Bells were

prepared with tables set up in the garage, so there was plenty of

space to eat and stay dry. Once our tummies were full, the sun

decided to make an appearance and the kids immediately jumped

into the swimming pool…a little chilly but who cares when you’re

a kid? A great time was had by all and it was so nice to see all of the

fathers from our Porsche family. A huge Thank You to the Bell

Family for opening up their fabulous home to us all!

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,

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.

Happy Hour at Champps

by Dennis Chamberlain

It always rains when we go to Champps, and so the afternoon

rain storm was no surprise – especially with the kind of

weather we’d been having for two months. But as in prior

years, it was no problem. The turnout was fine. Besides, the rain

stopped an hour or two before the Happy Hour began.

We had new members, old

members, and intermediate

members. We even had members

who ordinarily confine their happiness

to the track, rather than

food and beverages – like Mark

Steele, for example. At first, I

didn’t recognize him without his

racing helmet.

Mark sans helmet

New attendees and members

included Karen and Mike

Thompson. Karen and Mike have a ranch in Kansas that has

suffered from the

floods, but they

were in Dallas

long enough to

come to their

first happy hour

and it was great

to visit with

them.

For our

Mike and Karen

August 16 Happy

Hour we’re returning to Razzoo’s in Irving. Take the

MacArthur exit off 635 and get on the LBJ service road going

west. Razzoo’s will be on your

right, several blocks down. As

you probably know, they serve

large portions of Cajun and

American food. Hope to see you

there!

Boxstoberfest 2007

September 7, 8 and 9, 2007

Fredericksburg, Texas

Boxstoberfest is an annual event, held in Fredericksburg, TX - right in the middle of the TX hill country.

As always, Boxstoberfest is free (no registration fee, but you are responsible for your own meals and

lodging). This year, the event is Sept 7-9. Boxstoberfest is a low key event that the main focus is the

Saturday drive. Some of the best driving roads in the US will be covered. As always, we will be

hitting the “twisted sisters” - 335, 336 and 337. These roads have great elevation changes, tight

twisties, and straight sections with virtually no other traffic so you can really enjoy what your Boxster

was built to do.

The event starts off Friday night at the Auslander restaurant, where everyone gets their goody bags

and maps, meets up with old friends and makes a few new friends (and have a few beers).

Saturday starts off at the Gillespie County Airport, where we all line up for a mini concourse . . .

. . . then off to the drive.

After an exciting day, we meet back up at the Officers Club, wind down a bit, then meet back up

for dinner and door prizes.

Everyone who has been has had a wonderful time. For more information, go to

www.boxstoberfest.com or email mshassere@pharm-olam.com.

If you have any changes that

you would like to make to the

MRPCA membership guide, call

Joel Nannis at 817-329-1600

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!
