My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Slipstream Managing Editor

The term R.S.V.P. comes from the French expression

"répondez s'il vous plaît", meaning "please respond".

Or from my New Mexico world (it’s up to you to put

in the Spanish/Indian inflections), respond por favor. In

any language it means, Tell Me You’re Coming, and if you

tell me you’re coming, COME. It’s just good manners.

So that saying my next thought is on the Father’s

Day Picnic (gaze left). It’s a grand laid back day with an

easy people’s choice concours/wash and shine and food and pool and hot

dogs and games (for big and small) and munchies and snacks. And in

order to not have 43 bags of chips and no guacamole Tracey needs you

to RSVP to coordinate all that.

Speaking of concours, and not the easy one at Father's Day but

more like the serious one at May at Mayo's, it takes a lot of work to prepare

a car. But it also takes a lot of work and dedication to be a judge.

Bob Bianconi had three pairs of judges for M at M's who have judged at

Parades for several years. For a region that doesn't "do" concours that's

pretty amazing. If you have any interest in being a judge talk with one

of these guys (see Bob's article on pg 15) to find out more. Then check

out the folks at Parade. They take their judging responsibility as seriously

as the contestants. There is a growing need for dedicated judges on both

the regional level and the national level. So come on and jump on in,

the water's fine.

Oh, speaking of water, the Bell's have a glorious pool so, after you've

rsvp'd to Tracey that you're coming to the Father's Day picnic and

concours, pack the back of your Porsche with your suits and towels

along with your general cleaning supplies. It's going to be a glorious

party!

So.... did you all enjoy the segues from rsvp to concours to judging

and back to rsvp?? Welcome to my world of logic.

It’s M U R R R D E R!

Catch my Draft

by James Shoffit, the Maverick Region President

Absolutely, positively dead last. That’s

where I placed at our first Concours

event. At least we can all sleep at night

knowing that the president doesn’t get any special

privileges at the events! After the scoring

was all done, I was chatting with Bob Bianconi,

the Concours chair, and told him I couldn’t

believe I came in last place. He quickly said

“oh, no you didn’t, some guy only got 88 points out of the 140.”

I then reminded him that I WAS the one that got the 88 points!

When I was a kid I was in a bowling league. I was horrible

at it. Lowest scores of anyone in our league. But at the end

of the season I had brought my average up so much that I got

this absolutely huge trophy declaring me “Most Improved”. I

am sure hoping Bob has one of those awards for me at the end

of this year – I think that’s the most I can hope for!

Bob ran an absolutely fabulous event – 32 people showed

up in spite of it raining all day long. It was so well organized,

and punctual; it was a pleasure to participate in and attend.

And next time I expect to at LEAST earn Next To Last Place.

Thanks, Bob!

In other news, one of our great Autocross, Time Trial, and

DE participants and former AX/TT Tech Inspection chair suffered

a horrific accident. (I will save you the agony and tell

you this has a happy ending). Rick Randall was home alone

swimming in his pool when he

dove in head first and hit the

steps. He broke 6 of the 7 vertebrae

in his neck, completely

crushing number 5. He heard it

all snap and knew he was paralyzed.

Somehow he got himself

OUT of the pool using nothing

but his chin – he will have to

show us that trick when he

completely recovers. He yelled

for help for about 40 minutes

until a neighbor heard him and

they careflighted him to the

hospital in Fort Worth. He had

We’ll see you back out in the sun

real soon Rick!

surgery on his neck, replacing bone with titanium, and gluing

the rest back together, and now he has motion in all limbs and

is already up and walking. He will have to wear the big halo

device for the next 3 months, which means he won’t have to

wear a tie for a while. (Has anyone ever seen Rick in a tie ?

Can’t remember…) Anyway, he spent a couple of weeks in the

hospital, and will spend a couple more in rehab, then he will

be back home for the next 3 months till he gets the halo off.

Amazing that he lived (first of all), that he wasn’t paralyzed,

and that he has full use of his limbs. Luckiest guy on earth. Of

course anyone who has seen him drive knows he is lucky every

time he saves a spin!

PCA National has made a request of us – please log into

www.pca.org and make sure your email address is right. If you

have trouble getting logged in, please contact myself, Joel Nannis

(membership@mavpca.org) or PCA National to get signed in.

Once you are logged in and at the www.pca.org home page, click

on the “View and Update your PCA record” link near the top of

the middle section. You can also update what cars you now have,

your address, your associate member, etc. Pretty soon we might

start emailing event notices and other pertinent information, so if

you are interest in those, make sure your email address is correct.

In June we have the Father’s Day Picnic at a new location

– Autocross and Time Trial chair Bryan Bell and Autocross

and Time Trial Registration chair Andrea Bell are hosting the

event. Their house is one of the neatest houses I have visited,

and is well worth the drive out there. Look for more details on

page 2.

Then on June 30/July 1, we have another Time

Trial/Autocross weekend in Mineral Wells – come on out and

try it out if you haven’t before. We’ll even loan you a helmet if

you want. I won’t be at that weekend’s festivities – I will be

driving to Parade in San Diego – but don’t let that stop you!

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

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis

James convened the meeting at 7:15 PM. He

started off with a sad announcement concerning

Rick Randall, who recently broke his

neck diving into his swimming pool. He said an

operation was pending to fuse vertebrae in his

neck. Wendy volunteered to send flowers when

Rick gets out of ICU.

James then mentioned he and Wendy had a conversation

with the Parade Kids chair in San Diego. She was struggling

for a T-shirt budget. One of the T-shirts will honor our late

Lanean Hughes, who was instrumental in creating various

Parade activities for children. James suggested that Maverick

Region sponsor the Parade Kids T-shirts at the 2007 Parade.

However there were some issues with the Parade Treasurer.

We volunteered Teri, who was not in attendance, to contact

San Diego and see if it’s possible for us to donate $550 for

these shirts, without reducing the Parade Kids budget.

Wendy asked if everyone had seen the Panorama article

about the new Hope Shelter. She plans to submit our sponsorship

of that building project in the 2007 Charity Contest.

Jan, as usual, needs information about all pending events

and articles concerning previous events.

Bob B reported there were 32 cars registered for the concours

to be held at Cinco de Mayo at Mayo’s. He and his team

are all set for staging to begin at 4:00 PM on Saturday. We

discussed if drinks, especially water, would be available for

the competitors who arrive early for prep?

Denny reported he had received an e-mail from Steve

Boyd, who said that our Flickr Pro account needs to be

renewed. He said he would handle it. He asked for guidance

from the board concerning an ad for other car club events.

We suggested that he ask on a case by case basis.

Mark said that we have insurance. He has sent a request

for insurance for the Club Race.

Bryan reported that TimeTrial #2 and Autocross #3 went

well, but were not as well attended as he expected. He thinks

that rain reports were at least partially responsible for this.

We discussed how to reverse this trend. Charlie was appointed

(officially) as AX/TT Rules Chair. Denny will create a new

e-mail account to facilitate communications with the Rules

Committee (rules@mavpca.org) and will put a link to this on

the website.

Bob K reported he was doing quarterly financial statements

again. The most recent might look like we don’t have

money however, this is not the case. Some of our PayPal

deposits didn’t make it into the first quarter report. The

($105,000) is not a correct number. Our finances are OK!

Bob reported we had $230 donated to charity at the recent

DE. Andrea also has some money from sales of car numbers

and the water donation can is stuffed with cash. The audit of

the 2006 books is still pending. The Fort Worth Post Office

will send an e-mail to Andy regarding our recent move. Jan

noticed there was no Slipstream ad for any one DBA “Track

Store”. It seems Bobby Archer changed his business name

when he moved near TMS. All is OK.

Joel said preparations for the Club Race are going well.

Rocky is doing the Club Race shirts. Putting on his

Membership Chair hat, our membership remains about the

same. He is working on getting a total membership list.

Currently, his membership database does not have all the

affiliate members. We discussed whether we need a Regional

Membership Directory published in Slipstream. We have been

doing this for years and continue to have a few members concerned

about their personal data being published. Our decision

was to continue publishing it for the present.

Lisa, with Jan’s concurrence, said Slipstream is full of

advertisements. She has started a waiting list for potential

advertisers.

Tracey reported that our Founders Day banquet will be

held at the Austin Ranch on Saturday, November 10. She is

working on a Murder Mystery at Fair Park. The cost will be

$64.00 per person, which includes everything. We agreed that

the first Saturday in August (the 4th) would be a good date for

this event. They require a minimum of 30 registrants (last

time we had a Murder Mystery, 45 people attended).

Someone suggested we lower the price for children’s meals at

May at Mayo’s. After some discussion, we decided to make 10

and under free. Tracey reported she has 86 registrations for

May at Mayo’s.

Kevin asked if AX/TT attendance was down? We agreed

it was. We discussed what to do about it, including new web

site content, a series of Autocross articles to be written by

Bryan Bell, including course diagrams with follow up articles,

and finally wondered if not having results after four events

might be discouraging.

Robyn reported her chair was empty.

Travis contended that tech inspection was OK. He also

reported he and Robyn attended Hill Country Region’s

Autocross School. It was held at a new facility called “The

Driveway” in Austin, a small road course. He said all students

had new cars! No one there had ever seen a 914 and were

intrigued with his car!

Charlie, in the interest of time, passed.

James delayed adjourning the meeting at 8:37 PM

because there were no cookies!

In the Zone

by Caren Cooper, PCA Zone 5 Representative

One of my goals as Zone Rep is to increase communication

among the regions. Given the geographical size of Zone

5, it is critical that we make good use of technology. To

that end, it is important for Zone 5 to have a website.

Fortunately, Suresh Hariharan, current Hill Country Region Vice

President, graciously agreed to serve as Zone 5 Webmaster.

Suresh has been working on a Zone 5 website that, among other

things, will allow regions to post event information in an effort

to promote cross-region event attendance. When you see Suresh

at the track, please join me in thanking him for taking on this

project!

March and April saw a flurry of activity as spring weather

finally arrived. In mid-March, I participated in the PCA Club

Race & DE co-hosted by the Hill Country and Lone Star

Regions at Texas World Speedway in College Station. We had

chamber-of-commerce weather from start to finish! Special

thanks to the dozens of volunteers who put on a very wellorganized

event that was great fun and incident-free.

On Saturday, March 31st, the annual Zone 5 Presidents’

Conference was held in Dallas, Texas. Fifteen region officers

attended, including Vu Nguyen, PCA Executive Director. Vu

presented the latest news from the national office. Everyone in

attendance was very impressed with his organizational insight,

the team he has put together, and the PCA resources that are

being developed. The conference began with the presentation

of certificates to six of the 11 Zone 5 Regions that are celebrating

major anniversaries this year: Cimarron (20 years), Coastal

Bend (20 years), Hill Country (30 years), Ozark (30 years),

Longhorn (45 years), and Maverick (45 years).

On April 20-22, the Houston Grand Prix was held on the

Reliant Park street circuit. The attendance at the Porscheplatz

was outstanding and the response to the call for volunteers was

amazing – thank you to all who volunteered! A special thank

you to PCA Past President and current Porscheplatz chair, Bob

Miller, and to Larry Hayes of IMSA for their support and help!

Looking forward, Spring is here and there is so much activity

all around Zone 5 – what a perfect time of year to check out the

website calendars for other regions and drive over for an event!

From the Tech Q&A

by Jim Slauson, Boxster/Cayman PCA Tech Advisor

Question: I have had the classic problem with the airbag

warning light. Although I've had the seat buckle replaced

and the gold contacts fix, I still occasionally have the light

come on. The local dealer has been unable to come up with a permanent

fix. My question is, when the light is on, will the airbags still

deploy? In other words, how serious an issue is it to be driving with

the light on?

Answer: The airbags will still deploy should you have a buckle

failure. The problem is do you know that the light is on

specifically for that? You may check it and it may be on for

the buckle at that time; however what if you have a control unit failure?

Since the light is already on you may not even know that there

is a far more serious issue with the system.

Another scenario would be that the light came on and you assumed

it was just the buckle when in fact it may be the airbag. A good rule

of thumb for any safety equipment is to repair it whenever required

and maintain it. You may be glad that you did one day.

I would suggest though that you take it perhaps to another Dealer

for a second opinion. I would also like to see a copy of the fault and

in its expanded view. This would list all of the details that are pertaining

to it.

Mavericks Wild about Wildflowers

by Clint Blackman

Maverick Region’s first “Sunday Drive” was “a blooming

success”…Literally! Our first Sunday Drive on April 29th

was a “drive tour” of the Ennis Bluebonnet trails. Fortyseven

“flower powered” Mavericks in twenty five Porsche automobiles

took off from the Dowdy Ferry What-a-Burger on Interstate

45 in search of the official Flower of Texas. This year, Ennis celebrated

their 56th annual Bluebonnet Trails Festival. The Festival is

built on a system of specially marked roads that showcase “acres

upon acres” of wild bluebonnets. The Ennis area has the largest

collection of bluebonnets in North Texas.

Our drive

route took us

through Palmer,

Bristol and Crisp,

Texas. The drive

itself was quite fun

as we traveled

down winding

“tree canopied”

roads and “up and

down” hills of

rolling pavement,

Disappearing into the bluebonnets

flanked with beautiful

flowers. Those who went “topless” were filled with the sweet

fragrance of spring bluebonnet perfume. We made four “flower

photo stops” to see and photograph bluebonnets mixed with

varieties of other wild flowers including Indian paintbrush, primrose,

wild mustard and coreopsis. (For us non-floral types: that’s

orange flowers, pink flowers and two types of yellow flowers!) To

say these fields were “carpeted” with color is no exaggeration.

Our group really got thousands of “OOOhs” and “Ahhhhs” per

gallon on this trip.

Two hours passed too

quickly as we ended our

tour in Ennis at Bubbas’.

There we feasted on a

hearty meal of barbeque

beef and ribs underneath a

miniature “airshow” of

World War II era flying aircraft

models that were suspended

“in flight” over the

dining room. The best part

of the tour was the gathering

old friends and new

members to celebrate our

Sunday Drive friends friendship and love for

driving these great cars.

Our next Sunday Drive is June 3rd and we drive to the East

Texas Oil Museum in Kilgore. October 7th is our Texas State

Railroad “Rail Picnic” tour. We finish the year on November 11th

with a Tyler State Park Sunday “Picnic in the Pines” Drive. Come

“Sunday Drive” with us.

May at Mayo’s

Nathan Hardwick - Age 7

Once upon a time there was a garage. It was called the Mayo's

Garage.

In the garage there was juicy fried chicken stored in a thin

cardboard box.

We had mashed potatoes, fresh sweet corn, salad and rolls.

There was also a car show that had really cool cars and some

people won clear 1st place medals with white writing that said,

“1st Place Winner.”

Our car almost won, but this other car beat us by 6 points.

We had 117 points, but that

other car had 123! No!

Although that's funny because

we started out with 140 and lost

23, the same number they

would've had if someone took

off the 1 in 123. (And it's also

funny because you count

1...2...3... etc.)

The best was Ed Mayo's

car. He only lost 2 points

because of a bug splat.

There were lots of games

for kids like me. They had a

piñata filled with candy and

money. There was also sidewalk

Lisa and Sydney Steele hopscotching

chalk.

May at Mayo’s Concours D’Elegance Report

by Bob Bianconi

Aber das Spyder gesagt worden: Zählt es, wenn ich deutsch bin?

(But the Spyder said: “Does it Count if I’m German?”)

Whew… it’s over. Our first in a millennium, Concours

D’Elegance. And guess what, our esteemed President took……….

last place – and by a wide margin no less. But the good sport that

he is says that he sees the shopping list of judge’s findings as opportunities

for improvement next time! Go, James!

After the car show we ate cake! On it there was a perfect circle.

But it wasn't just a plain circle, it had the Porsche Club symbol

on it.

I hope next year will be even better (but that will probably be

impossible) and I hope that my Grand Grand (Grandfather) will

win a prize.

Nathan lining up for his first swing at the Pinata

Nonetheless, it is with a big smile that I can report that 27 cars

participated in our first 2007 Concours D’Elegance held at

May@Mayos. That’s just simply a great turnout despite what promised

to be a drizzly day. Drizzle, no drizzle, it was like that all day. It

even sprinkled for about 3-4 minutes as folks prepared their cars

about an hour before judging began. But with a few wipes of the

towels, all was better.

It cleared up nicely by judging time and at 5PM, three judging

teams went about their business of finding dirt. And with the exception

of James’ car, there actually was very little dust or dirt to find! But

we’re jumping ahead. Here’s an explanation of how the Concours

worked.

In our Maverick Concours, cars are broken into seven classes so

that each is judged among its peers. Points are deducted from a total

of 140 and the car with the least amount of points deducted wins the

class. In addition, the car with the overall highest score (least points

deducted) among all the entrants is designated as the “Best of Show.”

Judging turned out to be tough with so many well prepared cars.

It was obvious from the start that folks took great pride in getting

their cars ready to display. In fact, just about everyone was seen putting

the last minute finishing touches on their cars. The team of

judges spent 4 minutes on each car (one judging the interior and one

the exterior) and then spoke with each owner about the things they

found and could work on for next time.

Best of Show went to Ed Mayo’s yellow 1972 911S. This car

scored 138 out of 140 points (yikes!).

Not Done Yet…

Besides the awards based on the point scores of the judged

cars, everyone was given a chance to vote for their favorite car.

This is called the People’s Choice Award. When all the votes

were tallied, one car emerged as the clear winner. This car had

more than 3 times the votes than its closest rival! And that car

was the beautiful red 914-6 owned by Dennis Carter.

Congratulations, Dennis!

Host Ed Mayo won “Best of Show”

So, what’s next? With so much interest by Maverick members,

we’ll do 2 things. First, schedule a fall 2007 Concours

D’Elegance. Second, we’ll do a short series of Slipstream articles

on car preparation (pay attention James). Matter of fact

we’ll ask our judges what they typically see so that we can all

avoid those little mistakes next time

Oh yeah, that brings me to the title of this column. Right

off the bat, it’s my turn to go under the white glove judging

microscope. And there it was, plain for all to see… a spider

web in my cup-holder. How? How could that be there? I just

cleaned that, I thought. But there it was. Aarrg. Points deducted…

I thought I heard the spider pleading that it was a

German spider…

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.

Porsche Club of America News

by Roger Johnson

PCA is very excited to announce two new on-line tools to assist you in communicating with your Region as well as organizing events.

The first new tool is on-line event registration. This tool can be accessed at: http://clubregistration.net/. Key features include:

• Registration for any type of event, while it can be used for complicated events like DE’s and Club Races, it can just as easily be used

for a dinner meeting or a tech session. Club Racing has already adopted it as their preferred method for registration.

• Your members will create a profile and then never have to enter that information again.

• Car numbers are saved for future events

• Run groups can be assigned

• Accepting credit cards through PayPal is an integrated feature which makes it easy for your Region as well as your members.

• A variety of reports are available.

• Available 24x7

ClubRegistration.net was developed by Chris Alvarado of the Hill Country Region working closely with both the PCA Website Committee

and Club Racing. We thank Chris for all his hard work on this and Chris is making it available at no charge to those Regions who wish to use it.

This email was sent with the second new feature. We are very excited about the new Emailer. It gives Regions the ability to email all

their Region’s members in the PCA membership database who have not opted out of receiving emails. There are many features to this

application which will be covered in an up-coming Regionfocus. This tool allows PCA to have more frequent and more immediate contact

with its members.

Key features of the Emailer are:

• Region Presidents and Membership Chairs have the capability of emailing all members in their respective Regions. Zone Reps can

email everyone in their zone.

• Membership chairs can easily email new members as well as those who have recently dropped their membership.

• Region Presidents and Membership Chairs can email their Region management team.

• The editor allows for you to quickly send simple emails very quickly, but will also allow you to create very sophisticated messages as well.

Those knowledgeable in HTML can paste it into the editor to build even more sophisticated messages.

• You can personalize the message with easy to use substitution strings. This allows you to personally greet your members with things

like “Dear John Smith.”

• Graphics can be uploaded and included in the email. There is a PCA header as the default, but you use whatever header you like.

• Members can opt-out of receiving emails by following a link at the bottom of the email they received.

Those that have access to the emailer will see it as a selection on their logged-in page on PCA.org. If you are not registered with PCA as

a Region President or Region Membership Chair you wouldn’t see it as a selection. Click on “Emailer” and you will see the lists you can send to.

Click on “Compose” and create you message.

We think you will find this new tool to be very powerful. With power comes responsibility. Please use this tool with some thoughtfulness.

You need to respect your members email accounts and only send messages of value. You want to make sure that when they see a message in

their inbox from PCA they will know it has value and that they want to open it.

We’re addressing Newsletter Editors in this

message because we need to get the word out to all

members to update their member profile. There

are thousands of members who have no email

address in their profile and many thousand more

with out-of-date email addresses. Please ask your

members to go to PCA.org, log in, and review their

email address in the blue box on the right side.

Everything we can do to get member email addresses

up-to-date will make the Emailer work better for

your Region and PCA in general.

Watch for the upcoming Regionfocus for more

details. As always your feedback is most welcome.

Happy Hour at Mac’s

by Dennis Chamberlain

Our return to Mac’s was well worth the wait, and the food

was even better than I remembered – not to mention the

weather. Last year we hit Mac’s during the hottest part of

the summer, and I remember snapping off Porsche photographs

outside in the sweaty heat, with my shirt clinging to me like saran

wrap. When I got my tripod out of the back trunk of my Boxster S

I practically burned my hand (you Boxster owners will understand).

This year the temperature

was mild, and we

had a great turnout of close

to forty.

couple of happy campers. I caught

them out behind the restaurant making

out. This is one the reasons that

you always need to have a camera

ready. You’d almost have thought they

were married. Or maybe you would

have thought they were almost married.

How many times have two

Maverick members gotten engaged? I

can only think of one other time, and

it was before I was a member.

Personally, I feel that this kind of trivia

Judy Brodigan is a lot

more interesting

than the “how many grams does

But I digress….

For our June 21 Happy Hour

we’re returning to Champps in

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!
