My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Slipstream Managing Editor

With Lanean’s passing you all have noticed a

bunch of people stepping up to the plate to

help make sure things continue happening.

Rocky recognized Tracey Gross by presenting her the

Selcer Award (see Founder’s Day pictures) for the

many things she was already doing plus picking up

organizing the Board Meetings. Lisa Steele was also

noticeable at Founder’s Day where she assisted Tracey with table

decorations, helped me and Wendy sort out the raffle items then kept

Bryan Bell on track while he handed out the autocross and time trial

trophies (you can see the top of her head in some of the pictures), all

things Lanean was involved with. The DE/Club Race committee still

needs someone to help them with track hospitality.

Many people have really jumped on the band wagon in the last

few months of finishing up the Hope House. Bill Middleton, Ron

Colbert, Wendy and James Shoffit, Teri and Charlie Davis, Tom and

Annette Snodgrass, Jean and Dave Frick, Mark Gluck, Linda Bambina,

Bob and Clara Lewis were all there on a regular basis. Many more

came out one or two times.

Clara Lewis then took on the job of the Christmas stockings that

Lanean always prepared for the Hope ladies and kids. Again most of us

only knew snippets of what had been done in the past but Clara

gathered up a bunch of folks at her house and we stuffed first ourselves

with some wonderful munchies Clara provided, then the stockings.

She had a some things that Lanean had gathered throughout the year;

Grant Rutledge provided a huge sack of shampoos and lotions from

The Ritz!; I brought a sack of chocolate snackies from the Russell Stover

outlet. I can’t think of all the things we had or where it all came from, but

there was a lot. We made stockings for the counselors that work at the

shelter plus for the women and children that we knew were there (plus

an extra or two, just in case…). Clara, Wendy and Tracey coordinated

the toys everyone brought to the Christmas Party for Hope.

This weekend we will be delivering these stockings and toys to

Hope and will sing some carols. It will be a heart rendering time as we

join the ladies and children to enjoy a little bit of Christmas before they

continue their journey to new lives. I’m sure there will also be a tear or

two as we remember our dear friend that started our love and support for

this shelter as well as for the many, many things she did for us Mavericks.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and let’s make it a

wonderful 2007.

Catch my Draft

by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President

First of all, I would like to thank everyone for

their votes. In a close race like that, every vote

counts and it is great to see the throngs of

people lined up at the polls. Democracy in action!

I bet some of you know me, but statistically, most

of you don't. Back in the early 90s, some friends of

ours were avid autocrossers. I had never heard of the

sport, but we spent a few weekends travelling to the

Philadelphia Ikea parking lot and watching these crazy people drive

round these cones. I decided that was what I wanted to do some day.

Some day. Then in the mid-90s, my earning potential increase at the

same rate as my desire for a sports car. I ended up with a 3000GT, just

because I liked the way it looked (and when I sat in it, I had to scoot the

seat up closer - at 6'3" it was nice to have plenty of room!). But it was no

sports car - it looked great, but needed a tug boat to get it around a tight

corner. Then in 97, it was time to get a new sports car, something I could

autocross. I looked at various cars - Vipers, NSX, etc. But I needed

something with a back seat, since Jasmine was a few months old at the

time, and we take her with us pretty much everywhere. So Wendy told

me I should look at 911s. I had wanted one since I was a small child. My

mom used to go to Dallas to shop and she would drop me and a friend

off at Forest Lane Porsche-Audi to drool over the cars. So when Wendy

told me to look at 911s, I didn't want to. I figured since I had always

wanted one, if I got one, what would I want next ? Looking back, I can see

what a foolish question that was, as the answer is obvious - you ALWAYS

want another Porsche!

So I started my search, consulted many people, and read all I could

about them, and so I went on the hunt for an 89 911 Turbo Cab, white

with black top. I found a few, but most had sold before I could get to

them. I was ready to fly to Utah, California, or wherever I could find one

to look at. But I was having no luck. Then I saw in the local paper there

was a 90 C4 Cab for sale, which intrigued me. Almost as much power as

the turbo, but safer. Still a good looking car, white with black top, so I

talked to the owner, and I met, looked over the car, we agreed to terms,

and I bought it without having ever driven it. I owned and loved that car

for the next 8 years. I finally sold it last year to a guy who will love it even

more than I did. He flew down from Nova Scotia and drove it back home.

So with my new 911, and my desire to autocross, I looked up the

local club, and sent in my application. My first event was the new member

party in early 98. I went straight in, met a few people, then immediately

asked where the autocrossers were. I was directed to the then-president

Brian Scudder, who told me all I wanted to know. I bought a helmet and

started autocrossing, and haven't missed very many since then. Wendy

watched from the sidelines for the first event. But at the second one, she

drove, and was hooked as well. The next few birthdays, anniversaries, and

Valentine's Days were easy for me. Helmet, driving gloves, helmet bag,

and new tires were the gifts she asked for. I was in heaven!

A few years later, in 2000, I decided to run for President. I had been

good friends with the past presidents and thought I could add some

different perspectives to things. I thought the job sounded like fun. Oddly

enough, I started feeling that way again last year. My first years as President

were made easy by Lanean Hughes and Wendy. They kept me on the

straight and narrow making sure I didn't forget anything important. With

Lanean's passing, this presidency will surely be more difficult, but we have

seen an AMAZING group of people step up to fill that void.

Linda Bambina stepping in to finish out the Hope Shelter has been

a wonderful blessing. It was so good to see that project getting completed

and ready for the new occupants. And many thanks to each and every

person who donated time, money, and prayers. They all helped, and the

benefits will continue to be enjoyed for years to come.

Tracey Gross has also stepped up since she and Ed joined. Active in

nearly every area as well, she is never afraid to jump in and get things

done. Just what a club like ours needs.

So why did I decide to run again? I wish I had written it down,

because I can't remember now! No, just kidding. I wanted to be president

because I am passionate about this club, about what we do for the

community, and what we offer our membership. It is the way that I can

help out and keep this whole thing going.

I don't have any big changes planned, other than to try once again to

get a Concours program going.And I will need some help with that. If you

enjoy washing your car at all, please let me know if you would be

interested even in the simplest non-judged show and shine. Email me at if you have any interest in attending a Concours of

any type. Maybe I should define what a concours is, for those that don't

know. It is a contest for who can get their car the cleanest (and in some

cases, most original). The national level ones are quite competitive, but

I would be happy if we just had an event where everyone washed their cars

and showed up!

I am looking forward to this next year, and I hope the rest of you are

as well. Come on out and join the fun! See you soon!

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis

PCA-MR Board Meeting ...Dec 5,2006 . . .

[An apology: I recorded the Board Meeting and

transcribed it later. The single mike in the middle

made voices at the ends difficult to understand. I'll use 2

mikes next time...]

Rocky: Called the meeting to order at 7:04PM and

started the traditional CW rotation at his left.

Joe: “I have nothing.”

Michael: “I came to learn what's going on.”

James (to Rocky):“This is your best meeting ever! You finally got the

hang of it.”

Joel: National says we have 1070 members + 822 affiliate members.

Joel says we have 1200 members. James wanted to know who was

right. Joel explained that National drops members quickly (with no grace

period) but he keeps them on the roster for 3 months.

Tom: Pitched the 2007 AX Driving Schools. He will send out e-mails

. . . he is looking for a few good instructors. Rocky wanted to know what

was decided about the Lady's AX School. There were enough people that

wanted the format to stay the same, so Saturday, Feb 17 will be for ladies

and teens and Sunday, Feb 18 will be open.

Bill: 4 dates are reserved (in Feb, Apr, Sept, & Oct) @ MSR for DE's.

The CR is not booked yet. John Sandusky needs to make a decision. We

may use Eagles Canyon instead of MSR? Rocky suggested that reserving

MSR as a default might be wise. Joe asked if there would be a cancellation

fee at MSR if we booked it and then cancelled. Bill was unsure about this.

MSR will not raise their rates this year (probably due to competition?).

We REALLY need a volunteer to take over what Lanean did! Keith Olcha

will take over dealing with the sponsors. We need people to handle

catering, ordering “porta-johns”, hospitality, plus coffee & donuts. Ruf

will sponsor the Feb event. James thinks the paving is done at Eagles

Canyon. Joe said that other organizations are scheduling events at EC.

Jeff: Is in the process of changing the bank account over to the new

officers. He is trying to get everything changed by January. The bank

needs a copy of the minutes, listing the 2007 officers. The results of the

recent election:

President: James Shoffit

Vice-president: Mark Gluck

Secretary: Charlie Davis

Treasurer: Bob Kuykendall

Kevin: Distributed a proposal for ongoing surveys, in both the

newsletter and the website. I believe he will submit an article for

Slipstream? One issue was whether to publish the statistical results. I

think we decided that publishing the results was important to avoid the

perception that they were being ignored.

Kevin asked who did the last survey. James (correctly) said it was

Graham Lane, in 2000. After discussion of how questions would be

selected, Kevin suggested that all submitted questions should be

approved by the appropriate Chair. Joe suggested that some questions

could not be graded, thus were worthless for a survey. Teri asked if there

would be a place for comments. All this came at a breakneck pace.

Nobody got resolution to their questions. Tom mentioned that some

websites have a daily question; when you answer it, it immediately shows

you the voting results (so far). James liked that idea.

Lisa: She noticed recently that some (old) advertisers signed

contracts for Slipstream ads. The newer advertisers did not. She

questioned if she should continue just sending them an invoice or

perhaps revert to a contract? James asked if the advertisers are paying

the invoices that they receive. Lisa said that all but one have paid. We

questioned the exact wording of the contract; like did it have wording

that stated that the contract would automatically renew (“evergreen”) as

long as the advertiser continued to pay for the ad. Nobody had an

advertising contract, so we never answered this question. We decided,

however, that a contract is probably not needed and counseled her

to continue sending invoices. Joe liked that decision, since he had an

opinion that a contract could be used in litigation against us, if for some

reason we failed to perform.

Tracey: Founder's Day Banquet raised $3,300 for the Hope House.

The New Member Party is scheduled for Jan 28th. It's being held at a new

member's house in Plano (Brad Nace and Mia Williams), rather than the

TMS party room. Rocky asked if there had been any thought given to

trying to get more new members to attend. Tracey thought we discussed

it last month and that Dennis was going to ask Monda to call the list of

people who attend the Happy Hours. Several people thought that having

it in Plano would draw more than TMS. There is another Wine Tasting

scheduled for March 10th. It will again be at Premier. She reported more

favorable comments about Premier than Tony's Wine Warehouse.

Premier also donated several Wine Tastings for the Founder's Day raffle.

May at Mayo's is looking fo a date and Father's Day Picnic on June 17th.

The post-Parade Rally/Dinner will be on July 21st. Social events for the

rest of the year are pending but a Murder Mystery event will be included.

Jan: Asked if Mark had all these dates down. He held up the

December issue of Slipstream and said that he was already clipping ads

out to submit next year. Tracey said that ads must be done WELL in

advance of the events. Mark reported that Dennis had already done the

ads for the next Slipstream.

Tinker: Talked, but I could not hear her.

Jan: We have Slipstream and need articles.

James: Which night do we want to have BMs on next year? Decided

to keep it on Tuesday, still at Hackberry Creek CC. The Jan, 2007 BM

will be on the 2nd. We discussed the possibility of moving the BM to

another location in order to get a wider menu.

Charlie: We need to have an AX Rules meeting, especially to address

changes to the Top Driver process. We have been discussing it for the last

2 months. We decided to have it at the Shoffits on Monday, Dec 11th, at

7:00 PM. Someone suggested that we might want to have an AX Survey

first. James objected, contending that would cause the 2007 AX Rules to

be published late. Jeff suggested we only query the 2006 AX/TT attendees.

That idea was well received, but we still decided to go ahead with the

meeting on the 11th.

Mark: No more events to insure in December. He will start ASAP

doing ads for 2007 events. His process is to look at the calendar in

Slipstream and also check the website calendar and get ads made for

upcoming events.

Teri: Teri has 5 dates for Rallys in 2007. One will be a Tour/Rally to

the Post-Parade Party. June 10th will be a TSD rally. February 3rd will be

the first rally. It will be a Photo Rally in Plano. All the dates will be on the

calendar. She has given the ad for the Feb 3rd rally to Jan.


Wendy: The computer has been passed to Jan (the new editor). A

monitor and printer/scanner/fax combo has been purchased. The total spent

was less than $550. Jan may need to buy some books? The transfer has gone

smoothly. Jan assisted a lot with the last issue. Jan reported that she had

Wendy's list and asked,“What does it mean?”

On other subjects, Andrea (Bell) has agreed to help with AX/TT

registration. Tom (In charge of schools) will have Wendy, Andrea, and Lisa

collectively handling registration for the AX Schools.

Tracey: Asked why Slipstream is received so late every month. Wendy

said that it's always the goal to get them in the mail on the 1st of each month.

Then she recounted the many reasons why they are late. James agreed with

Tracey that keeping Slipstream on schedule was a high

priority, but often the most time critical article/ad is the last thing received!

We discussed the possibility of moving the deadline up to the 1st of each

month (from the 10th). One issue is that currently the BM is scheduled after

the 1st and this might be a problem? Wendy inquired if we can find out how

many times Slipstream is accessed on-line. James said it was possible, but that

he didn't know how, as it was controlled by the PCA National Website guys.

Joel said that if the deadline is the 1st, he will be unable to supply new members

(in a timely fashion) as he gets updated membership info on the 1st.

Wendy said that things like the new-member info is never a problem. It has

a reserved place in the newsletter. If it is received a few days after the deadline,

the info from Joel just drops into the reserved place. From her perspective,

it's the ads that are the biggest problem, because it's not known how

many will be received and what size they are. Also, pictures are problems,

because it's often late when the number of pictures is known. Wendy suggested

that perhaps we have two deadlines: Require ads and pictures to be

submitted by the 1st and everything else a few days later.

Rocky: Thanked everyone for making his two years as President

easy…even fun (at times). He adjourned the meeting at 8:07 PM.


Maverick Driving Schools - Class of 2007

by Tom Snodgrass and Kevin Hardison

Winter hiatus is nearly over! Are you ready for school? Maverick

Region is sponsoring four driving schools to give you a taste of

what competitive driving is all about. Though safety comes first,

having fun is our goal for everyone. The focus this year is on Porsche men

and women who want to learn more about driving their cars. Previous

experience is not required. In fact, if you have taken the schools two

times already, congratulations you have graduated! (Now we need you to

volunteer to help put on the schools for the new people!) Students will

receive full instruction from our excellent and experienced Maverick

instructors. All schools are held prior to the start of the Autocross & Time

Trial seasons to get you hungry for more!

Ladies & Teen’s School - Pennington Field - Saturday, February 17, 2007

This is our traditional ladies and teen’s only school taught by our best

lady drivers. Many of them are class winners at the Porsche Parade. Guys

are just there to set up the course, work corners, and pick up cones during

this very well organized school. Top speeds are lower, and all of the

exercises are designed to help you learn about your car. There is plenty of

time to gradually increase your speeds as your confidence grows. This is a

great school for ladies that want to get ready for the driving season, or just

“give it a try.”

Autocross 101 - Pennington Field – Sunday, February 18, 2006

This school is the same format as the ladies only school the day

before, but is open to the gentlemen as well. Ladies are welcome to join

either day, or both! This school is the perfect introduction on how to attend

an Autocross. Students drive exercises in the morning followed by a real

Autocross in the afternoon. Students and instructors “work” the corners to

gain experience as an observers as well as a drivers. Fun runs at the end give

volunteers and instructors a chance to join in the fun as well.

Time Trial 103 - Mineral Wells – Saturday, March 3, 2006

This school provides a specific focus on the Maverick Time Trial

courses. It includes multiple laps on courses that are higher speed than the

Autocrosses. Students learn higher speed handling and transitions in

portions of the Time Trial courses in the morning. The afternoon is

devoted to an actual Time Trial.

Autocross 102 - Mineral Wells – Sunday, March 4, 2006

Though similar in organization to Autocross 101, the Mineral Wells

venue allows for more and different exercises, and a larger Autocross

course. Autocross 101 is not a prerequisite, so feel free to attend Autocross

102 even if you cannot make it to 101. Mineral Wells is the perfect location

to explore the limits of your car. Students will learn what the car can and

can’t do in a safe environment.

General info

The schools are expected to be sold out. We limit the number of students

to ensure full instruction for everybody. This means: Register early

to ensure your spot! Register at:

The Porsche club member cost is $35 for each school. (This must be

the bargain of the century for instructed driving schools!)

Non-Porsche Club members, and late entrants, pay $45 for each school.

First time students will get a coupon for a free Autocross or Time Trial.

Lunch will be provided for students, instructors, and volunteers!

Porsche Club members that who sign up more than 2 weeks in

advance will have priority. Acceptance e-mails, along with school details,

will be delivered approximately 2 weeks prior to the school.

Helmets are required and must have a SNELL 2000 or 2005 rating. If

you don’t have a helmet, loaners will be available. You will be asked to

purchase a head sock for a nominal charge (or bring your own).

All cars must have a Maverick Region technical inspection prior to the

schools. This ensures that any problems are fixed prior to showing up at

the track. Inspections may be performed at Mayo Performance in Euless

or Autoscope in Plano. Please contact Bryan Bell at for

more details.

We need volunteers to help put on the school. Please consider “giving

back” by helping out with setup, running, and taking down the event. We

need you to register online so we know you are coming.

For more information go to the Maverick Region schools page

at To register (students,

instructors, or volunteers, go to:

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Snodgrass at or call 972-754-2064.

Because of his devotion and dedication to the club, an award was

presented in his honor by a then unknown sponsor. We later

learned that Don Spaulding, a good friend of Dick’s, was the one

who created and donated the award. This award has great meaning

in that it commemorates people of a like nature in their commitment

to the club as was Dick Selcer.

The first recipient was none other than our own Charlie

Davis. Many names have followed Charlie’s lead, some of them

more than once, and only one three times. Who will be the next

recipient? Time will tell and James will know.

Autocross & Time Trial Awards 2006

by Bryan Bell

We had a great TT and AX year starting with an icy / snowy

AX school in February! Thanks to Kevin Hardison, Tom

Snodgrass, Wendy Shoffit and everyone who volunteered

to help out. We saw lots of smiling faces at the schools this year.

Thanks to our AX committee: Charlie Davis, James & Wendy

Shoffit, Brian Petri, Lisa Steele, Darron Shaffer, Mike Lockas &

Shelly Burbank. We now have 11 car classes instead of 33+, an

online car class calculator, and ladies have the choice of competing

in the open class with the men or their own indexed Ladies

class. Thank you to all the volunteers and workers who helped

make this a great year.

Most Improved was a very tough competition this year due

the fact that almost everyone got so much better! We had three

people stand out. Both Tracey Gross and Chuck McCoy improved

about nine positions overall from last year. But the winner of the

most improved award this year moved up on average twelve positions

per event over last year. Going from around 20th place to

around 7th place overall is Bob Kuykendall! Plus he just let me

win the Trivia contest last month!

We had no cone killer award this year! Tracey Gross hit 0 all

year out of some 90 runs! And James Shoffit (last year’s cone

killer with over 30 cones) hit only two all year! Wow!

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.

Restyled Benchmark Porsche SUVs -

Featuring More Powerful and Fuel Efficient Engines and Advanced Stability System

...Make Their Worldwide Debut at North American International Auto Show

ATLANTA, GA, Dec. 4, 2006 Four years after their stunning

debut in the world market, the next generation of the highly

successful Porsche Cayenne and its Turbo and S variants will

be seen for the first time at next month’s North American

International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The trio of Porsche

SUVs incorporates attractive new styling, enhanced engine

performance, and innovative handling technology.

To increase power and torque, as well as fuel economy,

the engines on all three new Cayenne models are equipped with

direct gasoline injection, known at Porsche as Direct Fuel Injection

(DFI). To improve the Cayenne’s already exceptional handling,

directional stability, and ride comfort, an inventive new Porsche

Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is available as an option on each

of the new SUVs.

More information on the new Porsche Cayenne, Cayenne S, and

Cayenne Turbo will be available at the NAIAS Porsche press

conference on January 8. Designated as 2008 models, the trio of new

Porsche SUVs will arrive at North American Porsche dealerships in

March of 2007.

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), based in Atlanta,

GA, and its subsidiary, Porsche Cars Canada, Ltd., are the exclusive

importers of Porsche sports cars and Cayenne sport utility vehicles

for the United States and Canada. A wholly owned, indirect

subsidiary of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, PCNA employs

approximately 300 people who provide Porsche vehicles, parts,

service, marketing and training for its 215 U.S. and Canadian

dealers. They, in turn, provide Porsche owners with best-in-class

octane performance or 100-octane performance, as well as Valet and Anti-Theft

and back to Stock settings.

“European Car” magazine (March issue) tested a GT2 with GIACʼs 91-octane software,

stock engine, free flowing air filter, free flowing exhaust and a diverter valve

which obtained a Whopping 600 bhp and a Thundering 630 bhp on the 100-octane

performance software. 0 to 60 in 3.3 seconds and high 10ʼs in the 1/4 mile.

Many of the worldʼs fastest Porsches use GIACʼs software. Letʼs flash your Porsche.

Happy Hour at Rio Mambo in Colleyville

by Dennis Chamberlain

Iwon't keep you in suspense. Rio Mambo is a Mexican Food

restaurant. From the name, I was expecting something from

“Dancing with the Stars” (or come to think of it, isn't the

Mambo some kind of lethal snake?). Anyway, Judy Brodigan gave

me a secret early in the evening - she told me to order the seafood

quesadillas. More about that in a minute.

New faces? Well, Ed and

Mark Demas (85 944) could

have passed for the “car talk”

guys on NPR. And they were

just as entertaining. Lisa Steele

is certainly not a new member

but she must have been in the

neighborhood - she doesn't

come to happy hours often and

this one was about 90 miles from

her neighborhood. Pam

Carlton, a prospective new

member, has a sports bar in the

Colleyville area, and we'll be

Mark Demas

talking to her about perhaps

using her location for a future happy hour.

The seafood quesadillas -

well, I owe a big “thank you” to

Judy. Mark Gluck, Cathy Walther

and I shared a couple of dishes

including the quesadillas, and I

have to say that they represented

one of the best Mexican food

dishes I have ever had. In the

future, one order will easily satisfy

two people. Or take a doggy bag


So we'll definitely be returning

to Rio Mambo. Meanwhile,

Ed Demas

speaking of Mexican food, make a note of our January 18th

location - it's back to Uncle Julio's, on the Dallas Parkway

just north of Belt Line - at the Keller Springs exit. Hope to see

you there!
