My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Slipstream Managing Editor

Parade has come and gone but the pictures

and the memories remain. What a rush!

Both figuratively and literally. The head rush

of seeing a gazillion Porsches of all shapes, sizes,

models and colors is awesome. And new or old

every Porsche has its very own distinctive sound.

At Parade you get dizzy as you react to the sound,

constantly turning to see who/what is coming or

going. With a new Parade location every year it’s fun to see how

quickly you can maneuver to all the places you want and need to

go (Goodie Store, Registration, Banquet locations). This year

everything was smooshed into 5 days where last year it was 6 and

previously it had been 7. That created the literal rush.

Conversations with old friends were rushed because both of you

were headed to some event or activity. Afternoon events were

rushed so you had time to get gussied up for dinner. And there

was a dinner/award presentation every night. No room to

explore the area or sample local cuisine. I hope this smooshing

will change. I missed seeing and visiting with a lot of friends

because there was no time.

Speaking of rushing . . . The end of the year is on roller

skates heading this way at a very high speed. September’s DE,

October’s Charity AX and Concours, November’s Founders

Day and December’s Christmas Party and much more. Watch

the event calendar so you can pencil in the upcoming activities

and not miss anything.

A new activity that’s about to be in the works is another

Dyno Day. Travis Howard thought that sounded like a good

thing to have so “Viola!” he’s in charge of scheduling one. Stay

Tuned.

Over the year there have been some subtle changes in

Slipstream. Every new Editor takes that liberty to add his or

her own touches. One of the changes you probably won’t see is

the extension of the Slipstream Staff. Or at least I hope there

will be an extension. We’ve grown - substantially. And there

are pieces of the magazine that can be done remotely, then

combined later into one cohesive book. We’re working on a

way to do that. If you have the desire to be a “little” involved

but without taking a huge leap, let me know. I’d love to add

you to the team.

If you didn’t know, there already is a team working in the

background. Since he was editor, Matt Platts has “pinked” the

electronic copy, taking out the previous month’s articles in

preparation for the new month’s information. For the first part

of the year Mike Kuhn helped me by preparing photos and

doing the Trivia page. For more years than I can count Andy

Mears has been our liaison with the Post Office, most recently

facilitating the change from the Dallas to the Fort Worth Bulk

Mail Center. Proof readers Tracey Gross and Tinker Edwards

nit pick the issue for me before anyone else sees it. Lisa Steele

keeps our advertisers happy and their ad copy updated.

Speaking of ads Dennis Chamberlain and Mark Gluck have

been providing the beautiful upcoming event ads. If anyone

was depending on my creativity here we’d have a real problem.

And always at my elbow is Wendy Shoffit with tips, tricks,

advice and often physical presence helping get the book prepared.

But there’s plenty of room for more. And I welcome

anyone with interest.

Catch my Draft

by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President

Well Wendy, Jasmine, and I just got back

from another Davis and Davis Rally. Teri

and Charlie make a wonderful team for

these lighthearted, fun, rallies. This last one was at

the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, so in addition

to having a blast with fellow Porsche people,

we also got a little bit of culture. Which I desperately

need!

Charlie took the photographs, and Teri set

up the sheets and did the timing and scoring. This was a Photo

Rally which is kindof like a scavenger hunt where you go and find

the artwork shown in the picture. Charlie is very tricky with those,

so it took a lot of work to figure some of them out. There was a lot

of camaraderie and helping each other out, since we were in such a

relaxing atmosphere. Everyone got every answer right, so it came

down to who got the answers the fastest.

There are other photo rallies where you have to drive to find

the things you are looking for. There are no specified courses for

the photo rallies – you just wander around until you find everything.

Or time runs out!

Another type of Rally is the Tulip Rally. I don’t think we have

had one of those in a few years, but it is a Time Speed Distance rally

where you get small diagrams of each intersection you come to,

directing you through it. These small illustrations often look like

Tulips, thus the name. The goal for these is to go the speed specified

in the instructions, find all the turns, and complete the rally at

the right time based on when you left. That’s where the time, speed,

and distance come into play.

The traditional Porsche Club TSD Rally (like the competitive

one at Parade) is more tricky – you have a set of instructions and

things to look for to guide your path rather than diagrams of intersections.

The goal is the same – arrive at the perfect time based on

when you left.

Charlie and Teri put a lot of effort into these rallies, and they

have been pretty well attended this year. If any of these sound like

fun, send an email to Teri at rally@mavpca.org, and let her know

what you would like. She is also asking for help with ideas and initial

layout of Rallies. Typically we look for interesting roads and

scenery (could be city or country). If you are interested in helping

out – she can fine tune the details and the timing, let her know at

the above email address.

Other job openings I should mention are Editorial Assistance.

Familiarity with a computer is required – and not much else. We

can do the on-the-job training. We are moving towards using

Adobe InDesign to lay out Slipstream now so we can use both Macs

and PCs more efficiently. If you have InDesign experience,WE

WANT YOU. So if you think you can help out in ANY way – and

there are lots of ways to help, some that don’t require much time at

all, please let Jan know at editor@mavpca.org. She will love you forever!

We have had a few shifts in the board as well – Dennis, who has

given us about a thousand Happy Hours now, is turning over the

reins to Monda Degan and Mike Lockas. And we have a new

Calendar Person to help us keep all our calendars (web, slipstream,

events, etc) straight – please welcome Robyn Howard!

We also have a nominating committee consisting of Wendy

Shoffit, Jan Mayo, and Travis Howard. If you want to run for any

elected position (President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer),

please let them know at nominating@mavpca.org. Crickets ? All I

can hear is Crickets ?

I haven’t heard many reports from the lunches, except the

Lewisville one. Hey, if ANYONE is going to ANY of them (besides

Lewisville), please write me at president@mavpca.org if you haven’t

figured out the pattern by now.

The hot season (can you call it that since it took so long to

break 100 degrees?) is almost over, and our driving season is about

to get started and finish off with a bang. We have an AX/TT weekend

coming up on Sept 15/16 in Mineral Wells and our Season

Finale Charity Autocross is on Oct 14th at Texas Motor Speedway.

The DE season is going to be rolling again with Drivers

Education events at Motorsport Ranch in September and October

so you can get your skills up to try out Eagles Canyon in November.

They have been doing a lot of work there to get the track ready for

us, and we can’t wait to try out the new track.

And Founders Day will be on November 10th at a place called

Austin Ranch in Grapevine. Stay tuned for more details.

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

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis

August Board meeting. In attendance: James

Shoffit, Wendy Shoffit, Jan Mayo, Teri Davis,

Charlie Davis, Christy Dominick, Denny Payne,

Lisa Steele, Bob Kuykendall, Joel Nannis, Colin

Graidage, Mark Gluck, and Travis Howard.

James called the meeting to order at 7:04

PM. He then declined to comment, preferring to

save his remarks until the end of the meeting. He did introduce

Colin as our new DE Chair.

Colin’s first report was short and sweet: All critical positions

are filled. Joel chimed in and said we are possibly looking

into a night DE at TMS for next year.

Denny continues to update the website. He needs event

chairs to contact him via e-mail to ensure the website has accurate

information about their events.

Wendy took this opportunity to tell Teri that her rally on

the 18th is not on the website. She also said the results of the

last rally are also not there. She will send everyone a list of what

needs to be updated on the website. We discussed whether the

Club Race page should be pulled or left as it is.

This led to a discussion of the DE ad for Slipstream. Wendy

mentioned that submitting a word document with embedded

photos was problematic for use with Quark. Bob K suggested

that DE ads should show more street cars and not so many race

cars. Colin promised to have better pictures next time. At the

moment we’re looking for DE pictures. Someone suggested that

Dennis Chamberlain might have some.

Christy asked about artwork for the Selcer trophy. Jan had

it. She will scan it and send it to Christy. Someone suggested

we should list all the past Selcer winners on the website. Christy

said we needed do a Goodie Store ad and wondered what size?

Jan suggested both a full and half page ad be produced.

Lisa suggested we have several tiers of advertisers, to make

it easier to locate important sponsor’s ads in prominent places.

We clarified that all Slipstream advertisers get website ads too.

Lisa said she was ready to send invoices for 2008 Slipstream

advertising and wondered if we were happy with ad rates. We

weren’t. Bob K mentioned that he thought that we had agreed

to bump ad rates. Joel made a motion that we raise the ad rates

15% without a second. Wendy made a motion that we increase

ad rates 20% and it passed unanimously.

Bob K passed out copies of our quarterly financial report.

He explained that the apparent loss of $26,000 was a bit misleading.

First, $10,000 was the loss from the recent Club Race.

Much of the rest is due to our having to make deposits on the

venues for future events (AX, TT, and DE). Lastly, we bill our

advertisers on a yearly basis, which is pending. He insists that

our financial standing is not nearly as dire as it appears, and that

adding a third fall DE should help our cash situation.

Travis reported that tech inspection has been slow this

month. He inquired if we have ever had a Dyno Day? We have,

but it has been several years. We discussed having one again.

Mark said he will start laying out ads, real-soon-now.

Teri reported that the walking rally of the Nasher sculpture

center is almost ready. Bob K announced his company, the Beck

Group, will sponsor the event, absorbing the $8.00 entry fee. A

standing ovation ensued.

Joel thinks we have over 1300 members, but he didn’t seem

too sure about this. He announced he had over 61 registrations

for the September DE. He further reported that Joe McGlohen

has resigned as Safety Chair. Bob Benson is the new Safety

Chair for DE’s. Darron Shaffer continues as safety chair for AX-

TT.

Charlie brought the Truxster insurance and license renewal

paperwork and gave it to Bob K for payment.

Jan asked about the September Board Meeting. We had

decided to have it on Thursday instead of Tuesday, due to the

holiday. She needed ads. She mentioned that without a sponsor

the charity autocross would probably lose money, somewhat

defeating its purpose. Wendy wondered if Keith can get us a

sponsor?

Wendy made a motion that the region purchase a copy of

Adobe InDesign (which is a $199 upgrade from PageMaker).

The motion passed.

Jan again stressed that she needs Parade stuff. She is looking

for one article per major event at the Parade.

James, after making us wait two hours, only announced that

the winter National Board Meeting was scheduled for February

2. The location has not yet been decided. James adjourned the

meeting at 8:55 PM.

Peparing Your Car for a Maverick Concours d’ Elegance

by Bob Bianconi

Tips and Tricks from Our Judges

Our May@Mayo’s Concours event drew lots of interest

and participation. The cars were well prepared and

were separated only by a few points within each class.

So what’s it take to beat the car sitting next to you? That’s the

idea, right? Well, read on. This is the first of 2 articles on

Concours car preparation. This article will explain some common

exterior preparation mistakes as seen by our judging

teams. A future article will discuss preparing your interior.

So, with microfiber towel (and beer) in hand, follow

some of these tips and tricks from our judging teams and

you’re almost guaranteed to… have a really clean car. And,

maybe even collect a trophy at our Fall Concours.

Exterior Paint

Waxing is good: too much wax is bad. After you apply a

nice coat of wax, go back and look for wax buildup between

body panels, on door/hood edges, around the Porsche

crest(!) and on rubber trim. Use your towel or even a few Q-

tips to wipe away excess wax. (Note: after a beer or two, this

may actually become good therapy). This doesn’t take long

and it may make the difference between first place and second.

Judges will always look for wax buildup in nooks and

crannies.

Another common mistake: Many folks spend all of their

time putting a nice finish on their paint to the exclusion of

the rest of the exterior. Pay attention to things like smudgefree

glass, clean the visible portion of your brake calipers,

clean the gas cap area and wipers/blades and don’t forget

you’ll want bug-free license plates. Check out the judging

guidelines on the Maverick Concours page for a list of

things the judges look for (see link at the end of the article).

This list is really your best guide for car preparation.

Quoting one of our judges…

Paint Chips

You may lose a point or two for untouched-up rock

chips. Use a tooth pick and let a tiny drop of paint flow into

the chip through capillary action. Touchup techniques

could be an entire article unto itself. Better yet; go to the carcare-online

website for everything you ever wanted to know

about paint touchup (see the “How-To” link on the left)

Trim

Make sure your rubber trim has a deep black uniform

look to it. A number of products are available to turn that

washed-out trim back to black such as Back-to-Black,

Vinylex, etc. Got a white wax residue on your black rubber

trim? Rub some peanut butter on it! Betcha the residue disappears.

Wheels

Wheels are easy. Take them off, lay them face down on

the lawn, scrub everything in sight with strong soap (Dawn

dish washing detergent again) and a stiff brush. Flip them

right side up and continue with the cleaning. Next, wax

them. 356 steel wheels are gray paint or chrome and take

the wax well. Fuchs mags with flat black areas should not

be waxed but the polished portion can be. Wheels painted

body color take wax as well as the rest of the paint. While

the wheels are off, touch up the lug nuts if needed.

Ithought the San Diego Parade was really cool. I’m sure the next

one will be good, too.

To me, the most hectic part of going to Parade is the packing

and the drive there, but mostly the packing because it’s hard to

pick what outfits to pack and all the shoes and accessories that go

with them. But this trip was a little bit cooler because Geneva

Spreen came with us most of the time.

On the drive there we went through Carlsbad Caverns in

New Mexico. It was really cool. There were a ton of bats and cave

swallows that live there. When we were waiting for the bats to

come out, we kept looking at our watches wondering why they

were so late. My dad finally realized that he forgot about the Time

Zone change. It turned out we were one hour behind! The caverns

were really cool

and deep. It was very

humid and slippery.

We spent the night in

El Paso. The hotel was

very confusing. There

were two towers and

paths that connected

between them. Odd

numbers in one building

and even numbers

in the other. We met up

with quite a few people

Our Author

there.

When we got to

San Diego on Friday, we were pretty tired, so we checked in and

went to our room. I have to admit I actually thought it would be

nicer. Oh well, we can’t always get what we want. The next day we

checked out the mall. It was really cool. We then got registered for

Parade. Then in the evening we had dinner at a restaurant in the

mall, called the Crocodile Café. We got dessert at the Cheesecake

Factory. The line was out the door and down the street!

Sunday while my mom worked in registration, my dad and I

hung out. We

met a really

cute dog

n a m e d

Bullwinkle.

Then later in

the day, we

had the

W elcome

Party. Since

most of us

kids didn’t

exactly like

Smiley Face

the German

food they

had, there was a special kid’s area. No adults allowed, unless they

had a little kid.

On Monday it was the Concours. My dad had to get there

earlier to work, so my mom and I slept in and went there later. It

was very hot and sunny outside and unfortunately for us, we forgot

to put on sunscreen and got major sunburns. The cars were

really clean and pretty, but one of my favorites was a green one

with a smiley face on the front. I took a lot of neat pictures of cars.

You might even see one of my pictures here. That night was the

Concours banquet, so that meant babysitting for me and the rest

of the kids. It was pretty nice. It had a movie, two laptops, Legos,

a video game, and snacks and drinks. Most of us just played hide

and go seek. I wish I could have done the slot cars during the

babysitting, but we weren’t allowed to unless we were accompanied

by our parents. But they were having a long boring fish

smelling dinner instead. We were pretty lucky to have pizza!

Tuesday I hung out with Geneva and her mom while my parents

rallied. During most of the time, there was an art class for

kids. After we finished the crafts there, we went swimming.

Geneva finally learned how to dive by some older kids who taught

her how. There was also the ice

cream social and the beach party

that day. During the beach party,

my parents won first place in their

first Parade rally. Yay! The water in

the ocean was very cold, but I

waded in pretty deep anyway.

The next day was the

autocross. We had to get up super

early for that because my parents

had to walk the course. Why can’t

Jasmine’s 1st in the Art Show! they just bike it like I did in the

Kids’ Autocross? We went to lunch

at Carl’s, Jr. They make a mean Teriyaki Burger! Yummmm! For

dinner we went to Sea World. Most of the lines were too long for

us to ride. The banquet dinner was really good, but I fell asleep in

the middle of the award ceremony. Then my parents woke me just

in time for the fireworks. They were so close I could smell them

burning and I could feel the rumble when they were launched.

On the last day, we went to the San Diego Zoo. There were so

many different kinds of plants and animals. We saw a peacock that

had escaped and was eating Doritos on the sidewalk. My parents

went to the last dinner on the USS Midway, but Geneva and I

stayed again at babysitting. We had fun.

This Parade was an amazing experience that I will never forget.

But, of course that’s just like all the other amazing Parades. I

can’t wait ‘til next year!

Parade Tech Quiz

by Teri Davis

This Parade’s Tech Quiz was different. History questions were

included and it also was shorter - 50 questions instead of the

normal 100. This cut the time in half, but that didn’t matter

much to me as five minutes was plenty to cover as much technical

knowledge as I have. I spent another half hour trying to “logic” out

some answers, but it comes down to either you know it or you don’t.

Even those who are experts mis-guessed some of the multiple choice

questions. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting exercise and I’m sure the

gear-heads enjoyed it.

My First Parade Rally

by Wendy Shoffit

Thinking about our upcoming trip to Parade in San Diego,

James and I decided several months ago that we would take

our (new to us) 1983 911 SC to Parade rather than bring the

race prepared 1978 911 SC. While we knew we were giving up the

extra oomph we have become accustomed to for the autocross, we

wanted to try something different and knew we wouldn’t last 4

hours in race seats with no a/c. We had never participated in the

TSD rally in any of the six Parades we’d attended. Maybe we were

too intimidated by everyone’s opinions of it, maybe we were afraid

of getting too hot, or maybe we just couldn’t fit Jasmine in the back

of the race car with the full roll cage. Whatever the reasoning, we

didn’t do it until this year.

In preparation for our new adventure, we decided to take

Teri Davis’ TSD rally school in June. She’d said that the focus

would be on the Parade rally and she wouldn’t go easy on us,

wanting us to be really prepared. Despite maxing out two of the

three legs, we actually FOUND the one that most people didn’t

and ended up taking first place. Amazing! It was not without a

price, though, as I spent much of it thoroughly peeved after we

maxed the first leg, when we fell for a trap and I thought we could

have done better.

Many of you know that I’m a tad bit on the competitive side.

Okay okay…a LOT on the competitive side… so far gone that I

can’t even see the line! I get irritated with myself when I perform

poorly at autocrosses and am not much fun to be around then.

Few people in this world have seen me at my worst, “casually tossing”

a pool cue when I miss a critical shot or nearly beating my

doubles tennis partner to death for hitting me in the back during

his serve… TWICE! So, when I have heard countless stories of

couples wanting to kill each other after a TSD rally, I had pretty

much figured I had set myself up for failure. I decided at that

point to change my definition of success. If I made it through

without getting upset and tried to enjoy myself, I would count

that as winning. If we happen to do well in the standings… so be

it. My mantra became, “The fate of the world won’t be decided if

we win a trophy.” I scribbled it down on every paper in the rally

packet to remind me, along with smiley faces. Yeah, I know it was

cheesy, but it worked. Only

one time did I get frustrated,

but we worked through it.

Myra & Jerry Sutton going for their

Rally trophy

Teri accurately predicted

two traps the rallymaster

used and we didn’t fall for

either of them! I also decided

that I’d let James be the

only driver and worry about

the speed changes and I

would be the navigator,

reading ahead and looking for the clues. James and I worked very

well as a team and never felt completely lost. We did, however,

lose track of what time of day it was in the middle during a break.

You end up getting so wrapped up in minutes, half minutes,

100ths of a minute that the hour simply falls away. This prompted

one of the more memorable exclamations of, “What the hell

time is it?” Okay, so maybe there was a *little* more frustration at

times. Sometimes it was more at the cars ahead, clearly going way

under the designated speed (“MY sheet shows a CAST of 34…

why are you going 27???) or at a stop light that went over the time

Photos from the Parade Websie

allowance (how RUDE). But, believe it or not, we actually SAW

the scenery along the way! Southern California is spectacular. I

highly recommend it.

At the end of the rally, we had met our goal. Have fun, not get

too mad, and avoid a divorce attorney at all costs. We tallied up

our results and were happy with our calculated score… three hundred

something. The lower the score the better. At every checkpoint

you’re given your elapsed time. Your score is calculated in

the hundredths of a minute that your time is off of the perfect

time for that leg. One point is given per hundredth of a minute

you’re either fast or slow. Zero is the perfect score. (We didn’t have

any zeroes.) We turned in our scorecards, enjoyed the ice cream

social, and hung out that afternoon by the pool with the Spreens

while Jasmine and Geneva happily swam. It was a good day.

That evening was the beach party. We watched everyone

make sand castles, nearly killed ourselves in the tug of war contest

(for the Zone Challenge), and watched in amusement while some

people participated in the Frisbee challenge. After the Mexican

buffet dinner, everyone gathered around the clubhouse building

to watch the rally awards. We stood around Myra and Jerry Sutton

who asked if we’d seen the results. We hadn’t thought much about

it, but decided we

wanted it to be a

surprise if we were

in trophy range.

We’d heard a few

mentions of some

high scores and

realized our score

wasn’t the worst!

When they got to

the unequipped

class, they started

James & Wendy blown away at their

first 1st place Rally Award

counting down

around 12th place

with the Suttons

winning that trophy with a score of 902. Oh cool! Since I thought

our score was in the 300s, we realized we’d won a trophy, but how

good? The scores were dropping, the place was getting better and

better. They finally called our names with a score of 261 and

FIRST place (out of 72 cars)! I may be bad at math, but it turns

out that I do okay at rallying. Excitement and elation followed as

we went to the front to collect our trophies AND special

Yokohama jackets. It was awesome! People try for years to get this

coveted place and here we were able to achieve it our first time

out.

I think maybe we ought to quit while we’re ahead, as perhaps

the only way to go from here is down. Nah… it was too much fun.

Next time, we’ll even bring a digital watch so we don’t leave a

minute late from a checkpoint because James can’t read which

minute his analog watch is on! I wonder how low our score could

have been if we’d had an accurate time piece? Hmmmmm… I

guess we’ll have to find out next year in Charlotte. Is the scenery

pretty there? I wonder. Why don’t you come with us next year and

see for yourselves?! Remember to have fun and for SURE take

Teri’s rally school! Thanks, Teri!

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

Rio Mambo

by Dennis Chamberlain

Let’s see – we learned last December that Rio

Mambo is a Mexican Food restaurant. We learned

that it was inexpensive, and that the food was good.

And Judy Brodigan gave us a tip – to try the seafood

quesadillas. This time, we assembled first in the bar

and found that it

is colorful and

inviting.

It was deja

vu all over again

- Ed and Mark

Demas (the “car

talk” guys) were

there and they

brought their

wives Janice and

Janet. Bob Lara Tafel, Roger, Heather & Thomas Briggs

Lewis was there

with his gadget of the month – his new iPhone. Roger

Briggs was a new member attendee, and he brought

his wife Heather,

his sister Lara

Tafel, and his

son Thomas.

Cheryl and

Doug Koeppen

were attending

their first happy

hour after having

purchased a

low mileage,

Cheryl and Doug Koeppen

1996 arena red

C2 in Boston. They drove it from Boston to Dallas

and the owner said “what – you’re going to put all those

miles on my car?”

So we’ll definitely be

returning to Rio Mambo in the

future. And speaking of

Mexican food, make a note of

our September 20 th location –

Uncle Julio’s in North Dallas.

Featuring the Legendary 917 and 956/962

Porsche Club of America members will have the

opportunity to spend an evening with fellow members

and Porsche racing legends during the PCA Dinner Gala

event at Rennsport Reunion III, to be held the evening of

November 3, 2007 in the “500 Club” at the world famous

Daytona International Speedway. But you will need to

act quickly, as only 450 seats are available for this special

program!

Dinner registration will open on Tuesday, September

18, 2007. PCA members will be able to visit www.pca.org

to obtain the dinner registration form, which must be

mailed (US Postal Service) with a check to the PCA

National Office. Dinner registrations will be taken on a

first come, first served basis, postmarked no earlier than

the opening day of registration. If the dinner is sold out

on the first day, Parade oversubscription procedures will

apply. Tickets are $40 per person. A cash bar will be

available. Speakers are being arranged by Porsche Cars

North America.

Rennsport Reunion III is a PCNA event, administered

by Brian Redman’s Intercontinental Events and the

Daytona International Speedway.

In addition to the banquet, PCA will be assisting

with several activities:

1. Porsche model-specific parking corrals

2. “History of Porsche” car display (with Carrera

Club Coupe special exhibit)

3. Supervised track touring

4. PCA Hospitality and membership area

5. Scrutineering of the racecars

6. PCA Dinner – Evening of November 3, 2007 as

7. PCA volunteers to assist with our involvement

We are still seeking superb original examples of each

Porsche production model for the “History of Porsche”

display, which will run for three days, November 2-4,

2007. Production models will include those marketed by

Porsche as distinct models. For example, in the earlynineties

911 (964) line, the C4, C2 and Turbo will each be

represented. Vehicles chosen to represent the different

models will include a variety of body styles (Cabriolet,

Targa, Coupe). The PCA Rennsport committee will

make the final vehicle selections. Please contact the display

chairman, Steve Gaglione

at nine.fourteen@verizon.net

or 813 -978-3433 for an application

if you are interested in

participating in this unique

display. (For vintage/historic

racecars or PCA Club Race

cars, please go directly to the

official Rennsport site,

www.rennsport2007.com).

We are also still looking for PCA volunteer workers

to assist with the various activities listed above. Special

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!
