Catch My Draft
by James Shoffit, Region President
As some of you know, I am an owner
of a small software company that
develops software for large companies. Well
as it happens there was a trade show that was
going on in Berlin, and we had been considering
how to move into the European marketplace
for quite some time. We investigated,
and I volunteered to go. Let’s see, I like German
cars, work on German software, have a German dog
(Schnauzer), love German food, and have a German last
name. So what if I can’t speak Deutsche?
I went to the store and bought a couple books “Just
enough German” and “Germany for Dummies” – yes there
really is one! And I proceeded to read through them both. I
was getting really excited, and then thought I should try to
see what I could find in the way of Porsche stuff.
I looked on a map and found where the major Porsche
landmarks are. We have all heard of Stuttgart, Zuffenhausen,
Weissach, and Leipzig, but I, for one, had no idea where
they were in relation to each other, nor where they were in
relation to Berlin.
It turns out Germany is about half the size of Texas in
square miles (ok, meters), but it about the same “height”
as Texas, so I can relate it like this : Berlin is about where
Dallas would be (probably farther East), and Leipzig is just
South East, about where Waco would be. Stuttgart, (and its
small suburb Zuffenhausen) are about the equivalent of San
Antonio – very far South, and slightly more West. Weissach
is only about 12 miles West of Zuffenhausen, also quite
close to Stuttgart.
Since I would be based out of Berlin, and I only had an
extra day to do Porsche adventuring, I decided my best bet
would be Leipzig, home of the Cayenne, and also home to
the Porsche Test Track.
The test track was designed by Porsche to include corners
from many of the famous racetracks around the world,
including the Corkscrew from Laguna Seca, the Sunset
Bend from Sebring, Curva Loews from Monaco, the Bus
Stop from Spa-Francorchamps (not the one from Hallett)
and many others. I have dreamed of visiting it since I heard
it was being built.
And the customer center, called The Diamond, is the
spectacular inverted cone that has been featured in numerous
pictures and calendars for years.
I looked on the website to book a tour, and since I only
had about 45 days notice for the ONLY day I could go, all
tours were in German, and they were all sold out! There
was no room in any of them.
Luckily I had a friend on the inside, which often helps.
He was able to talk to the customer relations people at the
Leipzig factory and get me a one on one, English tour!
Fast-forward to the day of the event – I was all done with
the trade show, learned all I could about selling my software
in Germany, and was ready to relax. I got to the Hauptbahnhof
(main train station) in Berlin a couple of hours early to
make sure I wasn’t late for my 11am tour. I got on the ICE
train (Inter City Express) headed directly to Leipzig and
prepared for the journey. This particular train sped along at
about 142 miles per hour, which was pretty amazing to see.
As I looked out the windows, the close scenery flew by so
fast it almost made you dizzy to watch it. The German conductor
slowly sauntered down the aisle, nearly shouting in
a big deep booming voice, “MORGEN!..... MORGEN!...”
- his way of saying good morning to all the people whose
tickets he was about to validate.
Side note, for all people who at least know Porsche is a
two-syllable word: The correct pronunciation is LIPE-tsik
(or even LIBE-tsik). It took me a lot of practice to stop calling
Arriving in Leipzig station quite early, I had time to
stroll around the mall there. It was one of the neatest malls I
had been to – possibly just because everything was so new,
so foreign, and so fascinating to me. I then went to the taxi
area to hail a cab. I asked the cabbies “English? English?”
and they all shook their heads Nein. So I then reverted to

Today being my birthday I look
around at my friends kids and
wonder how come they are
getting older while my friends and I are not.
Another sign of the movement of time is the
passing of 89 year old Faye Whittenberg.
Fran Usserey’s mother and my “Texas
mom.” Faye was a beautiful silver haired,
blue eyed dynamo that had the sharpest wit. She was fun
to be with and will be missed very much.
Since James bombed out on me last month and he did
double duty this month, I had one of those thoughts. You
know, the reason for the title of my little corner of the book.
So my thought is.... Let Him Have It.
No not the proverbial punch. Just the space. I’m busy
with stuff, Parade stuff, friend stuff, life stuff. Continue
to read on friends, James has a lot to say this time.

Catch My Draft, Cont.
one of the two memorized phrases “Porschestrasse Eine”
which is the street address of the Leipzig factory. The first
cabbie nodded Ja and so I got in the car and enjoyed a nearly
silent ride there – him speaking NO English, and me only
knowing two phrases in German – the other being “Kurfuerstenstrasse
achtundsiebzig” which was the address of my
hotel in Berlin!
The cabbie dropped me off at the Factory security gates,
which looked like Fort Knox. Nobody would get through
there! And the person working the desk spoke no English,
but another guard did and had me sit until 15 minutes before
my tour. I was a bit nervous at this point, but I was so close
to the holy grail, the excitement washed away any trepidations
At the appointed time, they told me to proceed to the
customer center – the diamond. I didn’t know if I would
get an escort or not, but I was on my own. So I walked the
quarter mile path towards my own version of Heaven that
day. I took my time, took lots of pictures, and absorbed it
all, trying to remember every bit of it.
I had no hope of getting on the test track, as the Transsyberia
Cayennes were all on the track testing everything
they could before their upcoming rally starting in Mongolia
on July 25 th . So there were quite a few Cayennes there, all
orange and black, in various states of muddiness, figuring
out what needed to be tweaked and adjusted to do their best
in the upcoming race.
I could see portions of the track from the walk up, but
the best part was looking ahead between the rows of perfectly
manicured trees at the customer center. It is called the
diamond for a reason!
I finally got inside, and was greeted by several people
(who I could hear saying “This is the President of the Porsche
Club in the U.S.” – I doubt they would have understood me
if I had tried to correct them), and finally Astrid showed up,
to give me the tour.
The tour started in the customer center, with the showing
of a short film about the history of Leipzig and what I would
be seeing. She then took me around the building, showing
me the amazing dining room overlooking the whole factory,
test track, and customer areas, and then upstairs we went
to an impromptu historical museum of racing and street
Porsches from throughout their history.
She showed me the control room where there are about
40 cameras positioned around the test track, each one with
full 360 degree rotation and elevation and zoom capabilities.
The “corner workers” man the track from the control
room and can see every square inch of the track, often from
multiple angles. Positioned at many points around the track
are traffic signals that show yellow and red lights, should
something happen on the track that the driver needs to be
aware of. Astrid even let me play with the cameras a bit, and
I could zoom right in and see inside one of the Cayennes
which was parked for a bit.
Next was the factory tour. First was the area where engines
and transmissions appeared and got attached to the
frame. Then the frame assembly moved around on its own
robot, driving across the factory floor getting more pieces
attached to it. There were no visible wires or paint for the
robots to follow, but there were buried lines guiding them, I
think. They also had sensors to they wouldn’t clobber anyone.
The frames rolled up under the chassis, where they
lifted up and were bolted together. Humans did all the final
torque checks, though. Humans actually did a lot more there
than I thought – I was expecting more robots, but even the
wheel mounting devices, which were robot-assisted, had
humans lining things up.
I took a certain pride in knowing that the wheel crest
should have its point aimed at the valve stem, and was
pleased to see the factory workers making sure they did this
step correctly. And placing the name badges on the back
also took a lot of care, even though a big template guided
them. Everything was barcoded and arrived just when it was
needed – including entire tool chests that followed the Cayennes
along as a worker inside installed the interior pieces.
The final step inside the building was an alignment, and
then off to the test track they go. EVERY Cayenne made
takes a few quick laps to make sure things are well put together,
and if any problems are noticed, they get brought
back inside for correction.
So the tour was over, and I was wondering what was
next, when a guy came up and introduced himself. His name
was Kai Riemer, and he was a former pro race driver (not
for Porsche) who now did customer instruction on the test
track there in Leipzig. He was there to take me for a few hot
laps in a brand new Cayenne GTS!
There was a short break between the Transsyberia Cayenne
testing sessions, so we climbed in, belted up, and he
took me first on a slow lap, explaining all the turns and
curves, and then sped it up for the final two laps. This was
truly a dream come true!
Sometimes in life, the rain must fall, but when the sun
shines, we need to take advantage of it. And the sun sure
was shining on my trip to Germany.
In other news, the Lewisville lunch had 16 people – we
are really filling up that back room now! If someone wants
to start another lunch somewhere else, just let me know.
Check the calendar for upcoming events – we have fun
stuff for track cars and street cars and socialites. So come
on out and join the fun! See you soon!

Framing a House in One Day
by Lisa Steele
Lisa, that’s a shovel,
not a pogo stick!
Wow! What an incredible
all of the volunteers
with the Habitat for Humanity.
I learned that our very own
Tom Snodgrass has been building
homes with this organization for
over 10 years. When he brought
the idea to the Board about having
a day for the Porsche Club to
come out and help, I jumped at
this opportunity. I have always
wanted to help with Habitat but
thought that my lack of “hammering
skills” would hinder the
building process. I was totally
wrong in this assumption, because
I found out very quickly
that there is something to do for
anyone who shows up and is willing
to help out.
We had about 15 Porsche Club members show up among
the other 50+ volunteers and we were immediately put to work
with our lead man, Tom. Our group had the most important
job of building the “pig pen” for all of the scraps of wood and
trash to be dumped. I must say that our group built a mighty
fine looking trash dump. We took great pride in our work!

Once this task was complete, there was dirt to be leveled out,
holes to be dug, and of course frames to be built. The best part
of this whole experience was meeting the wonderful lady that
will eventually live in this home. Her name is Maxine and she
has been through many life challenges in the past few years.
She lost everything in Hurricane Katrina. She is currently
employed with Sam’s Wholesale Club and is gradually picking
up the pieces of her life here in Texas. In the short time I
spoke with Maxine, I have never met someone so deserving
of having this new home to call her own. Her beautiful smile
beamed across her face with every shovel of dirt she turned
and every nail she hammered in the wood. After our lunch
break, it was time to start putting the walls up on the foundation
in their designated areas. Every single wall that went up
meant another tear fell from Maxine’s eyes.
Denny, Lisa (hiding), Maxine, Jan, Clara, Cathy & Christie
are real proud of the Maverick Dump.

Tom hands Maxine the BIG hammer to drive the first stake
We were ALL amazed at what was accomplished in just
this one day – the entire house was framed and part of the roof
was complete. I’m not saying that you won’t be tired or that
you won’t have a few bumps and bruises at the end of the day,
but every bit of it is worth this awesome feeling of accomplishment
and I would do it all again tomorrow.

Minutes of the Maverick Region
Board Meeting on June
In attendance: James Shoffit, Clay Perrine,
Travis Howard, Robyn Howard, Darron
Shaffer, Bill Miller, Bob Kuykendall,
Teri Davis, Charlie Davis, Denny Payne,
Lisa Steele, Tracey Gross, Wendy Shoffit, Bob Lewis,
and Jan Mayo.
James called the meeting to order at 7:03 PM.
Clay gave us an update on the plans for the August
10 th autocross at one of the Rangers stadium lots. He
reported that everything is going well with planning for
this event. The previous autocross on June 1 st had 39
entrants. Clay also reported that he was continuing to
work on the new autocross software program and even
demonstrated it to a few board members.
Travis said that the time trial on Saturday, May 31 st ,
had about 52 entrants. He reminded us that the double
time trial at Motor Sport Ranch was coming up on June
21 st . He already has 55 drivers signed up, but can only
accept 48. We discussed the procedure he will use to
select the final 48 entrants.
Robyn said that she will update the calendar and send
it out to everyone on the board list.
Bill gave us a report on the recent club race. There
were 65 racers and over 75 DE’ers. The wide and
smooth surface at Eagles Canyon venue was fabulous.
He reported a few places had asphalt coming up after
the event. We discussed whether the selected date was
good… he said it was, in spite of the event at Watkins
Glen which probably siphoned off about five racers. We
got a glowing report from the Chief Steward. There were
zero incidents and accidents.
Darron reported that we have timing equipment.
Denny, not to be outdone, reported that we have
a web site. PCA national moved to new servers over
the past weekend. They have assigned a new URL to
clubregistration.net…it is “register.PCA.org”.
Jan said to watch our e-mailboxes… she will send a
list of ads that she needs.
Tracey gave us a quick update on May at Mayo’s
which went very well. The Father’s Day Picnic will be
at Bryan Bell’s sister’s house. They have no swimming
pool but do have a 12-car garage! She reminded us that
Founders Day on November 15 th will be formal. The
board approved spending $500 for a casino night.
Bob K reported that we have money. One of his
friends suggested that he spend some of it on new checks
with” Porsche” spelled correctly… the current batch
don’t have a “C”. After the laughter subsided, Bob said
that accounting for the club race was not complete yet,
but he bravely predicted it would be in the black.
Bob L said we have happiness. He reported on
the Happy Hour at Edelweiss, which was good, if a bit
Teri was disappointed that only one car will show up
for her TSD Rally School on Saturday. It will be a private
lesson for the Shoffits. James was also disappointed
and said he will send a reminder to the list.
Charlie reported that two of our autocross radios
have bad batteries. He listed the options for solving this
problem and the board authorized 10 new batteries for
the radios. He also reported that he had mounted the
public address amplifier permanently in the Truxster and
was looking for additional horn speakers to be mounted
on the roof. This will simplify setup.
Wendy (quietly) announced that the region has nominated
Lisa Steele for Enthusiast of the Year, but it’s a
Travis, who said he had never been on a train before,
went on the Texas State Railway Tour…he said it was
fun. Jan jumped in and got him to volunteer an article
Jan also reminded Bill that she had no article for the
recent Club Race.
James adjourned the meeting at 8:29 PM.
Memorial Day Weekend Club Race... Or~
Maverick Region hosted more than 60 racers at the inaugural
Eagles Canyon Raceway Club race May 24-26, sponsored
by Boardwalk Porsche. It was a weekend of intense
wheel-to-wheel competition and a lot of spirited fun and camaraderie.
Racers came from seven or more PCA regions,
including Mark Foley who towed his spec Boxster all the way
from San Diego just to dice it up with the Mavericks.
It started Saturday morning when racers got their first
chance to experience Eagles Canyon under racing conditions.
The wide turns and dramatic elevation changes of Eagles
Canyon did not disappoint. Everyone quickly discovered
that side-by-side racing and passing are possible virtually
anywhere. The day was capped
off with practice starts and a fun
race that gave racers a chance to
experiment with the best way of
getting through turns one and two,
often three wide, after the green
flag dropped. Rookie racers, Guy
Danielson and Shelly Burbank
earned their provisional racing
licenses on Saturday and were
welcomed into the Club Racing
Sunday brought intense action
from start to finish with two sprints
for each of the run groups. Spectators found great viewing
from atop the hill overlooking the main straight where they
witnessed some heart-stopping action as cars passed with
tires smoking through turns one and two. We had a sizeable
contingent of the all-new spec Boxsters and local racer Steve

What To Race, The Porsche?
Some of the things on the to do list before I die:
have a child (done), go on a cruise (done), get
my degree (working on it), tour Europe. Did you
see racing a Porsche anywhere on the list? No, it was not
there; even after my husband bought his
Porsche in March of this year. He, Ray,
wanted to know more about Porsches
after his purchase and that is when he
remembered that there was a man who
owned a Porsche that lived on Ray’s
newspaper route. The only kicker was
that Ray delivered to that route about
15 years ago. I laughed at Ray when
he told me he was going to go to that
man’s house and see what he could find
At that house Ray simply said
“Porsche” and the rest is now history. He met Richard
Diller and his lovely wife Carol on Wednesday and on
Thursday our whole family was having supper with the
Diller’s. Richard told Ray about the Mavericks, he helped
Ray pull the motor out of the Porsche, and turned Ray on
to a man named Bob Jones.
Richard took Ray’s motor to
Bob all the way in San Antonio
and continued to help
Ray out through that whole

was wonderful. We met
some of the nicest people and they welcomed us into the
group with open arms. Ray did a great job on the time trial
runs. In only twelve runs #59 had improved his time to
77.921 which might not have been the fastest of the day in
his class, but he did not finish last either. After the racing
was over for the day, the officiator opened the track up for
fun races and my husband told me to drive. “WHAT, ARE
YOU CRAZY? I HAVE NEVER DRIVEN THAT CAR BE-
FORE AND YOU WANT ME TO RACE IT?” Ray drove
me around the track
once and then he did
it, he switched sides
with me and I drove
the Porsche for the first
time ever. “That was
not so bad,” I thought
and Ray said I did ok.
Hannah Kelley came

Ray did ok too, he did not yell
at me (he was laughing too
hard to yell). The good news
is that he was not laughing at
me, he was laughing with me.
We had an absolute blast in the
Porsche and then the group
invited us to eat with them
at Nancy’s Italian Restaurant
(which gets an A+ rating from the Kelley’s). That night at
dinner we also learned how to pronounce the word Porsche

The next day….
Are You Talking To Me? ...
Continued By Kristi Kelley
The next day, April 27, 2008, take a wild guess
who raced auto cross that day? Of course Ray
did and I did too. By the time we had gotten
there, they had already registered not just Ray, but me also
(thanks Andrea) “Well, I guess I am racing today.” We had
ten races to improve our time and that is just what we did.
Ray started with his first auto cross race coming in with a
time of 128.917 and did not
tip a single cone. His best
time of the day was his last
race of the day coming in
at 111.436. His time improved
with each of his
races, which leads me to
Proof that Kristi Kelley really did
get to race the Porsche!!
believe his time is just going
to continue to improve.
I, on the other hand, came
in with a time of 188.227 on my first time around and finished
the day with my best time of 124.734 (got a little carried
away that time and took out one cone though making
my time for that run 126.734).
All in all, I think we are now both hooked. We had a
wonderful time and all of our co-drivers were very supportive
and helpful to the newbies on the race block. We took
our child with us to the race
and Hannah had a great time.
I am so thankful for all of the
racers watching out for our five
year old. A special thanks from
the Kelley’s to Bryan, Andrea,
Christi, Denny, Travis, Robyn,
Jeff, Tannia, Darron, Ray, Mr.
Joel and the fun man with the
camera. We will be back!
Robyn Howard all smiles
and enjoying the day!
I would also like to send a special thank you to my husband.
He dreams big, but he also makes his dreams come
true. Without him I would not have a beautiful family. I
would have never thought about going on a cruise, going
skiing, racing a Porsche, or been able to finish college and
get my degree. He helps me more than I will ever know.
Thank you, Ray!

Concours at Mayo’s
By Chris Christensen
Having now been to three Concours events sponsored
by our Maverick Region, I can honestly
say that they have been a lot of fun and, of
course, hard work in preparation. May at Mayo’s is a great
event while Jan and Ed Mayo are the perfect hosts. This
year’s dinner was catered by On the Border, the food was
excellent with beer and Margarita’s to wash it all down. I
just hope everyone made it home safely; those Margaritas
went down awfully easily!
This year I had the honor of not only winning my class
with my 2000 Boxster S but also the Best of the Show!
Wow, it blew me away! There were so many great cars
at the event; I never dreamed that my lowly Boxster could
win it all. But, I will have to admit I have babied the car
since buying it new in February 2000. There are only 6600
or so miles on the car, and as Ann my wife would say, it is
our “ice cream car.” Trust me though; we don’t eat our ice
cream while seated in our precious Boxster!
If you are serious about preparing your car for an upcoming
event, I would recommend reading the “Guide to
Concours d’Elegance” dated 7 March 2004. It can be found
on the Mav.pca.org web site. The write-up is excellent; all
68 pages of it. Yes, there are really 68 pages of tips and
how-to ideas to properly prepare your Porsche for a Concours.
It may seem daunting at first, but once you get into
it you learn there are a lot of things that you would not even
think need attention let alone be judged. Included in the
Guide are suggestions regarding products that work well in
preparing your car for an event. Everyone has their favorite
product(s) and if they work continue using them, but there
are some very good cleaners and waxes suggested that may
be worth trying.
I certainly cannot significantly add to the Guide
discussed above, but there are a few products I use that are
not mentioned. On the trip from home to the Concours you
probably will have your AC on, right? Well guess what on
arrival; there is now dust where there wasn’t any when you
left home. So of course after cleaning the brake dust off
the wheels for the second time on event day you also need
to attack the errant dust that has now blown through your
otherwise clean vent louvers. Yes, the louvers need to be
dust free also. Since you don’t have your vacuum cleaner
with you a product that is commonly available quickly blows
the dust away and is available at Costco (lower priced than
Best Buy) and that is; Dust Off. A compressed gas duster, it
works wonders very quickly around the dash and vents.
There are many other products available – I especially
like Meguire’s leather cleaner/conditioner. A little bit of
that on the seats just before judging freshens the seats and
it has a pretty good aroma. There has been little said about
the products Porsche markets, I do like their hard wax they
sell under the name Tequipment. Lastly there is a Micro
Fiber Miracle Cloth you can purchase at Linen and Things
or elsewhere….it seems to work better than most cloths
scooping up dust easily.
Good luck with preparing YOUR
Porsche and hope to see you at the
next event. IF you own a Boxster or
Cayman though, don’t work too hard
at preparation, I don’t need a lot of
stress at the next competition.

May at Mayo’s
By Emily de Jong (11 yrs old)
May at Mayo’s was a very pleasurable experience this
year. I’ve been to it about three or four previous times and I
have to say that this one is going on my “Top Two” list.
As usual, my friend Jasmine was present. I had brought
my scooter along but I mostly ended up talking with
Jasmine. I watched as she skillfully sketched a drawing of a
Porsche skidding to the right for an art contest. My parents
mainly chatted with friends at May at Mayo’s and inspected
the cars (much more carefully than I would have liked to, I
might add). In the end, we had a pretty great time talking
This was the first time we ate “On the Border” food at
May at Mayo’s. In the past few times, we’ve eaten “Main
Street Bar-B-Q” and “Babe’s” so this was a new experience.
There were tortillas, enchiladas, chicken, rice, beans,
gorditas, and my personal favorite---sopapillas with honey!
The drinks included the usual soft drink or water and a
cake was brought to celebrate the birthday of two of the
Porsche Club members (I was too stocked up on Mexican
tortillas and sopapillas to notice that it was chocolate). It
As I was examining the cars, two of them really appealed
to me. I mean, usually, I’m not that big of a car person

but these cars really stood out! This first one was a silver
Carrera S which looked like a newer model of Porsches.
The second car was a very light silver Porsche 1600 (356).
It’s looked similar to our orange Porsche 911 but a little
more old fashioned (and silver). The thing that grabbed
me most about this car
was that the seats were
bright red! Now that’s
To sum it all up,
May at Mayo’s was a
thrilling experience this
Emily’s favorite car . . . year. Between the food,
the friends and the fourwheelers,
I had a great time and I can’t wait until next year’s

May 10, 2008, Boardwalk Porsche and “Tech
Grand Meister” Cliff Blackshear hosted one
of the most informative reviews of Porsche
maintenance technique ever seen by club members. Robert
McDaniel demonstrated the Corghi tire and wheel balancing
equipment. We often forget that “everything” rests on our
wheels and tires. Few tire stores take the time to warm the tires
to operating speeds prior to balancing, correct for road camber
or achieve the most accurate tire balance possible. Like all
things Porsche, there is a huge difference tire and wheel balancing,
and you feel it the instant the wheels start rolling.
At another station, Mr. Abel Jimenez, demonstrated Porsche
electrical systems. Both early and late model cars were reviewed
for common electrical problems. As we learned, most
problems are driver induced and can be avoided. We learned
how to perform parasitic
and Abel answered

which goes first,
positive or negative?

Cliff displayed a disassembled 997 race engine and he
had a “hands on” introduction to the new vario cam and vario
lift valve system for the serious techs in the group.
Boardwalk finished the morning tech session with a “catered
in” lunch and great door prices including oil changes,
car detailing and Porsche specialty gifts. Everyone left with
answers to old and new questions with an appreciation for
Porsche and Porsche service. And for those who missed this
event… When jumping a car, the negative cable goes on first
and after starting, the negative is the last to be removed.

Sunday Drive: Tracks of a Different Kind
by Bill Middleton
photos by Bill Middleton
What has 10 wheels, weighs in at a sprightly 273
tons, makes 1650 horsepower – and yet can’t top
45 mph on flat and level ground? Let’s just say
those who made the Sunday drive of May 18th got introduced ‘up
close and personal’ to horsepower of a whole different nature –
iron horse style!
Our ‘early summer’ Sunday drive focused on a totally ‘un-
Porsche’ related event – driving to east central Texas to visit –
and ride – one of Texas’ great historical treasures, the Texas State
Railroad. Founded in 1881, to provide a rail connection between
the prison operated foundry and steel mill operations at Rusk, and
the main line railroads operating through Palestine to the west,
this is one of the longest operating steam railroads in the United
States. With a stable of 5 operational locomotives and numerous
other equipment, this was truly a ‘trip back in time’ when train
trips were planned well in advance, and you were lucky to cover
more than 150 to 200 miles in a full days’ travel.
We got off to an early (needed to make the train on time!) departure
from our south Dallas rendezvous point at approximately
8:15 AM with 5 cars and 10 eager (some still a bit sleepy, but
nonetheless eager) attendees, and made the trip to the departure
point in a little over 2 hours. The drive itself was most enjoyable
once off the freeway, as both 287 East and Texas 84 presented
nice 2 lane driving, some good twists and turns, little traffic, and
nice cool breezes for a pleasurable ‘top down’ morning.
At the depot, we were met by Carey and Geneva Spreen, who
arranged to join us at the station on their way back from Louisiana.
As we got our tickets and gathered up our picnic lunches, outside
we could hear
the ‘main event’
outside – Baldwin

waiting to come to
Once the tickets
and everyone herded up, we headed outside – and not a moment
too soon, as the ‘5 minutes to departure’ whistle sounded – and
oh what a sound! Those not prepared were both startled and a bit
amazed at just how loud a steam whistle of that size can be from
a distance of less than 100 feet.
We were no more settled into our open air car just behind
the locomotive when – with two short blasts of the whistle – we
gently began to move out of the station. Within just a few minutes,
we were up to speed – all of 25 miles per hour – and rolling
through the woods and fields. Being right behind the locomotive
for this first leg of the trip, we all had the opportunity to enjoy
steam locomotion at its best – the sounds of the engine working
grades, the whistle, the rumble of the rails, and the gentle rocking
of the cars. Along with the cool morning air, the trees and scenery,
and the company of good friends, the morning passed by in a
pleasant mix of conversation, seeing the sights, and enjoying the
show put on by the real star – the train itself.
In a little over an hour and a half, we arrived in Palestine fothe
lunch break. Being Armed Forces Weekend, we had a special
and unexpected treat – several area military historical groups had
displays all over the grounds of the Palestine depot consisting of
trucks, cars, equipment, weapons, tents, memorabilia of all kinds,
and from all the conflicts beginning with the Civil War to currenday.
Several actors were present in uniforms from all eras, and
there even was a display of military vehicles loaded on flat cars
representing a military transport train. We picked a group of tables
under the trees, ate our lunch, toured the displays, and enjoyed the
quiet of the piney woods next to the Palestine depot while they
turned the train for the return trip to Rusk.
Once turned, what had been the car behind the engine – and
closest to all the noise – now was the rear of the train, complete
with a REAL open observation platform, complete with polished
brass rail, decorative awning, and the BEST view in the house! As
we awaited departure one of the displays – an operating Vietnam
era Huey helicopter took a load of passengers on a short ride, and
we had an excellent viewing location for both the takeoff and
The trip back was a mix of quiet conversation, relaxing, and
in some cases napping off lunch (and maybe having to get up so
early to make the trip?) and, thanks to being at the quieter end of
the train, a more pleasant ending to the day. Several of the military
actors had come aboard at Palestine, and we were treated to seeing
them and talking with them as they walked the length of the train
during the return trip – there even was an MP along keeping his
charges in order!
We rolled back into the Palestine depot a little after 3:30 PM,
and after all that relaxation while someone else ‘did the driving’,
now had to wake up enough to make the drive back home! As we
gathered our things and disembarked, I think we all felt a little
more relaxed and unwound – and while taking this ‘step back in
time’ is indeed a great way to both enjoy some history and unwind
at the same time, we also had acquired a much better appreciation
for more modern conveyances!
We hope to see you next time.

Happy Hour at Edelweiss
by Bob Lewis
Meeting at a new restaurant for this month, in an
attempt to find an alternative German restaurant
from the one we have gone to for the last five years, we
ended up at Edelweiss of Fort Worth. Edelweiss is in the
western sector of where Maverick Region Happy Hours
have gathered. We spread our happy hour locations in an
attempt to entice in-active members to come and see what
we are about. Although we did fall down on this goal, 33 did
attend who are active in many other areas of the region.
This venue had a lot of good features for us. The place
is big with an extensive bar filled with an enormous selection
of beer (mostly imported from Germany) and wine. The
food is moderate in price, very plentiful and good tasting,
live music nightly
creating the perfect
The owners and
hosts are Bernd
and Rhonda Schnerzinger
Bernd plays the
songs (such as
Roll Out the Barrel), and orchestrates the “Chicken Dance”
every night they are open.
The décor is filled with multi colored lights and banners
hanging from the ceiling and walls. The walls are also covered
with framed pictures of Bernd and his famous guests.
The bar is filled with a large assortment of items to drink. In
Germany they would call this a “biergarten”, but in Texas I
call it a Honky Tonk with a German accent. Take a moment
and enjoy their web site and take in the sights we enjoyed
the night of the Happy Hour. It was great fun! www.edelweissrestaurant.com.
