My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Managing Editor

Do you know this pretty lady?

Clara Lewis has been quietly

taking care of the Hope House,

Hubby Bob, Hostessing the Happy Hours

and countless other things for Maverick Region

many years now. She was even seen

swinging a hammer at the Habitat for Humanity

house last spring.

This is her third year overseeing the Christmas bags

and gifts for the Hope House women and children. By staying

in constant contact with Hope Director, Lisa Huffaker,

and the other women working at the Hope House, Clara

knows who is there and what they need, whether it be diapers

and baby things or young teenage make up and video

games. The stockings are stuffed with some things each

child wants, something they need and some more fun stuff

just because.... That’s the way she is. The mothers also

get some things that they need plus some things to make

them feel good, maybe a lipstick or perfume or bubblebath.

Plus every bag gets a Wal Mart gift card just in case there’s

something Clara didn’t think of. [By the way, she will be

gathering Wal Mart gift cards at the Holiday Party next

month. If you can’t get by Wal Mart, she’ll happily take $$

and get the gift cards herself.]

feel welcome and at home. If

you would like to be a part of

either the stocking stuffing this

year or attend the Hope House

party, I’m sure that Clara would

be more than happy to get you

details. What better way to become

part of our charity than to

be involved in this special time

of year? Bring the kids for a very

valuable lesson. It’s a way for

them to connect with kids who are in need and realize just

how good they have it!

Throughout the rest of the year Clara has made countless

trips to Mineral Wells helping sort incoming donations.

I think she single handedly straightened up their “clothes”

room several times. She sorts blue jeans and shoes by sizes

and stores them in huge plastic bins. Blouses and dresses

are hung, children’s t-shirts are folded. It’s quite a job.

From the beginning ground breaking of the new Hope

House, Clara has been there, quietly changing the world one

woman and child at a time.

Clara has some help delivering the gift bags.

The past few years not only has she gathered and purchased

the items for the stockings, but she opened up her

home and played the role of the perfect hostess for the

stocking stuffing “party” to assemble them. She welcomes

a handful of Mavericks each year to make sure it all gets

done in the course of one afternoon. After the stockings

have been filled, she also has coordinated the date and time

for us to deliver the gifts to the shelter and celebrate with

the staff and residents alike. It’s quite a party, if you’ve

never been. Everyone at the shelter pitches in to make US

Catch My Draft

by James Shoffit, President

Well as I write this, the economy

seems to be tanking (ok, maybe

it is just the stock market). A

number of people gauge the general welfare of

the country based on the number of Porsches

in the classified ads of the newspaper. The

more Porsches for sale you see, the worse

things are. A friend mentioned that the same

holds true for eBay – he saw the number of Porsches for sale

skyrocket over the past few weeks.

An unstable stock market makes it hard to want to put

money there, so I of course turn to the car listings and search

for Porsches for sale. There are some really nice vehicles at

very reasonable prices available.

And of course as the weather cools off, it gets even

MORE pleasant to get out and drive the Porsche, just for

fun. As I type this, I am at Keystone resort in Colorado,

amongst the mountains and trees and wishing I had a

Porsche to drive up here. This is going to be the site of the

2009 Parade (the Porsche Club National Convention), and

it is going to be fantastic. I will write more about that in

next month’s article.

The year is winding down now as far as our events go

– our last Sunday Drive, the Holiday Lights tour, ended up

conflicting with the Holiday Party on Sunday, December

14th, and so had to be cancelled. We have tried to find an

alternate date that might work, but have been unable to do

so. Email Clint Blackman, the tourmaster, if you have some

clever suggestions.

Founder’s Day will be a bit different this year – less of

the hours of handing out autocross and time trial trophies,

and more recognition of other events. The event is going

back to formal wear again, so it is a good reason to dress

up and support our charities and have a nice meal with your

PCA friends.

Round Up is also going to be a bit different than in years

past, and it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. Linda Bambina

has been working hard on this, and has some big plans! Sign

up now!

Finally, the Holiday Party will be on December 14th at

the same place we had our New Member Party this year – a

wonderful facility.

So come on out and join the fun! See you soon!

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis, Secretary

Maverick Region October 2008

Board Meeting…

In attendance: James

Shoffit, Wendy Shoffit, Jan Mayo, Bob Lewis,

Tracey Gross, Mike Brodigan, Christy

Dominick, Jim Falgout, Teri Davis, Charlie

Davis, Travis Howard, Robyn Howard, and

Bryan Bell.

James called the meeting to order at 7:06 PM. He immediately

gave the floor to Wendy…

Wendy confessed that directory sales are slow so far…

she has sold approximately 12. She plans to print the direc-

tory in January or February. Hopefully, the ads in the September

and October issues of Slipstream will boost sales.

Jan admitted that nobody who needs to provide articles

or ads was here. Unless people write more articles, Slipstream

will have two blank pages!

Bob L reported that only 16 people attended the recent

Happy Hour at Reata’s. We’ll be at Uncle Julio’s in October,

Bugatti’s in November, and Big Bucks Brewery in

December. Bob then led a discussion about how to increase

Happy Hour attendance.

Tracey is pleased to have her Founders Day committee

set. They are working well together. They have a goal

to raise twice the donations through the auction as we did

last year. Travis wondered how long the cocktails would

be served and seemed pleased with the answer, which was

5:30 to 7:30. The Holiday Party will be at the clubhouse at

Heritage in Keller on December 14 th .

Mike said he was still learning which exit to take to get

to Hackberry Creek Country Club.

Christy said she had a new laptop, a new job, but no

new goodies. Bummer…

Lisa, with Bob K missing, announced that she had

money…something like $2700 from Slipstream ad sales.

8


My notes were not clear but I think she plans a shopping

trip? She said the recent DE was great! Due to the influx

of customers on the Sunday Drive, we made about $500 for

our H 4 charity.

Bryan put on his food critic hat and gave one thumb

down to the grouper and one thumb up for the salmon. Actually,

he’s still trying to figure out what the vice president

does? Jim didn’t say much.

Teri had a classic failure to communicate. She got an

insurance certificate for the October 12 th Rally…but there is

no October 12 th Rally.

Charlie recently sold the old air conditioner out of the

Truxster for $25. He wanted Bob K to know that finally his

Truxster account is showing a profit! Unfortunately, Bob K

was not in attendance, so he kept the $25 until next month.

Travis was relieved that our Time Trials are over. The

last two were well attended (47 & 35 entrants). The results

of the Bryan Bell vs. Marilynn Moseley grudge match were

unexpected…Richard Diller won! Lisa jumped in with

questions about awards. Robyn had nuttin’ to say.

James reported that some of the DE’s are already set

for 2009.

Jan, after a call to Linda, said that plans for Roundup

were complete. We wondered if it was advertised on the

website? If not, it should be.

James adjourned the meeting at 7:54 PM.

Autocross #6 - I(‘d) Like Ike (to stay away)!

By Carey Spreen

The sixth and final points-paying event in the

Maverick Region 2008 Autocross Series was

scheduled for the weekend that Hurricane Ike hit

Galveston and the Texas Coast, and there were dire predictions

of high winds, torrential downpours, and apocalyptic

lightning strikes. There was much discussion by the Maverick

Region board as to whether to cancel the event, and if it

was to be cancelled, when that decision

was going to be made. Other

automotive and non-automotive

events in the area had already been

canceled due to safety concerns,

but of course no one was sure what

Ike was going to do once he made

landfall. Would he cut a swath of

destruction through the DFW area,

or head toward East Texas?

At the beginning of the week, the weather predictions

didn’t look good. But as the actual day of the event got closer,

it appeared that Ike was going to head east, so the board

made the decision to stage the autocross as scheduled, rain

or shine. As long as there was no lightning, hail, flooding,

or standing water, the event could turn out to be an exercise

in wet condition car control,

which is something we could all

use as well!

Rick Gonzales demonstrates

how he achieved the fastest

time of the day.

Birdville Stadium in North

Richland Hills, where this event

took place, is also where we had

the first autocross of 2008, and

it is the smallest venue we have

used this year. The course laid out

for that first event was very tight

and technical, and required shifting between 1st and 2nd

gear more than once for the majority of entrants. So I figured

that this would also be the case for Autocross 6.

However, for this event, Clay acquired the services of

a guest course designer: Jerret Jan, of the Metroplex Miata

Enthusiasts. Jerret used a large loop at the first portion of

the course to extend the lap length, and, because he placed

fewer (and larger-radius) turns in the rest of the course, it

was more wide-open, with most cars able to stay in 2nd gear

for each run. There were some

exceptions to this, but the majority

of us only had to shift once per

lap. Speaking for myself, the less

shifting I have to do during an autocross,

the more I can focus on

accelerating, braking, and turning-

-always a good thing.

Carey Spreen, braving the

predictions of Ike, came out

to play anyway.

Mike Lockas shows us some

uplifting driving.

As it turned out, the day dawned cool and dry, and was

one of the nicest autocross days we have had all year. Turnout

was on the low side (28 participants), probably because

of the threat of rain, but those who

did show got 12 runs each (plus fun

runs for those who needed more

than 12!), and we still finished before

3pm.

This was the last points-paying

autocross of the year, but if you

want to try your hand at autocrossing

with a twist, sign up for this

year’s Round-Up, a multi-event

weekend scheduled for November

Around and Around We Go

by Clay Perine

Photos by Charlie Davis

Let’s get something straight right now.

Betty and I are Autocrossers. Hard core

Ok...

Autocrossers. Up until we joined PCA,

we had one experience with a Rally, and that gave us two

things that we remember vividly.... “What is the difference

between paved and unpaved? 45 Minutes.” And “Rallies

were invented by divorce lawyers.”

But a single rally with the Maverick Region changed

all that. We now love to go on the rallies, and the August

23 Loopy Rally was no exception. We showed up at the

Grapevine Mills mall ready to go, and excited to be there.

Eight cars showed up, and we were the oldest car there, and

the only air cooled car! As usual, Teri had the rally course

all set out, with some interesting twists. We even got bit

by a rule that we explained to one of the other competitors

during the event.

There was some beautiful driving around Lake Grapevine,

and some really nice twisty roads that I didn’t know

existed. Betty wants to go back and explore the roads when

we are able to really drive and not have to keep looking for

stuff on the side of the road.

Clint is astounded as Teri

shows him how dizzy he really was.

Afterward, we all went to Braums for Ice Cream. Teri

had to come up with a bunch of Tie breaker questions to

find a way to separate the three couples who tied for second,

and she can really come up with some tough ones. We got

to have fun arguing with Teri over an instruction (Teri was

right), and we met some really nice new friends.

So, when is the next Rally??

The Shawnee Trail Rally was

held on July 20th, 2008. There were

12 cars and 24 people in attendance.

Congratulations to Clay and Betty

Perrine on their victory! I guess no

divorce attorney is needed after all!

From the looks of the pictures,

everyone seemed to have a great

time. Thanks again, Teri, for a fantaxticand

fun rally! Now if only the

rest of the country could learn how

to put on such great events.

PCA Escape to the Land of Enchantment

by Caren Cooper, Zone 5 Rep

The fourth annual PCA Escape was held on September

18-21 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and

was hosted by the Road Runner Region – the

same great crew that has been organizing Fiesta del Porsche

for several decades. With over 160 cars registered, PCA

members took over the Marriott-Albuquerque for three

event-packed days, with the emphasis on social get-togethers

and driving tours.

Car wash and Concours prep.

The Escape weekend began with a Concours on the greens

of the Tanoan Country Club

with beautiful mountains

and sunset providing an

amazing backdrop. For the

next two days participants

were able to choose among

ten different tours – options

included checking out

the Very Large Array,

visiting galleries in Santa

Fe, touring the Acoma

Sky Pueblo, and driving

your Cayenne in an offroad

tour. Friday evening

festivities were held at the

Anderson-Abruzzo Balloon

Museum, which has an interesting collection of gondolas

from around-the-world flight attempts. Guests were treated

to a performance by a Native American dance troupe on

the patio overlooking the mountains. On Saturday night,

attendees were regaled with great stories by special guest

and Porsche racing legend, Vic Elford, the first driver to

race a factory-backed 911 in rally competition.

The Road Runner Region did an outstanding job

organizing the event and many thanks to all the Zone 5

You really must look at this

issue on the Maverick Website

to get the full impact of the

south west colors in front of

this Santa Fe Gallery.

Happy Hour at Reata’s

Wayne Corbell & Chris Hamilton

enjoying fellow Mavericks.

by Bob Lewis

The Happy Hour travelled to downtown Fort

Worth for their September Happy Hour. This

location is as west in the region as we usually

travel. In addition Reata’s is somewhat upscale to our regular

restaurant. These factors could have contributed to the

smallest attendance we have had this year. But those that

attended had a wonderful view, wonderful food and drink as

well as exemplar service. Reata’s told us that we could occupy

their best dinning room if it were not booked by another

group for that evening. The Dome Room is on their top

floor and over looks downtown Fort Worth and points east.

It is a truly magnificent

venue. We had two waiters

that served our tables

exclusively. The staff at

Reata worked with the

committee in preparing a

menu just for the Maverick

Region of the PCA. It

was comprehensive and

wide ranging in cost. But

of course there are always

those that want something else. One of our members just

loves the Grilled Double Bone-in Pork Chops with Apple

Chipotle Salsa. So the servers brought him that. He enjoyed

them so much that the next time at Reata’s I am going to

be sure and have them. Then my wife decided she wanted

the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus side. She did enjoy this and

thanked the servers for this additional item. When it came

to the deserts Clara and I indulged on the Dutch Oven Apple

Crisp with Cajeta. It too was memorable.

Photos by Bob Lewis

A new person to the Happy Hours was Avery Murphy.

Avery is not new to our regional events. He enjoys our autocross

events at Mineral

Wells. He and

Mike Lockas talked

at length about these

events and Avery’s

Porsche. I believe it

is a custom Yellow

914.

Murphy & Mike

Joy and Bryan

talkin’ cars...

Corbell brought

Bryan’s father Wayne. Wayne doesn’t drive a Porsche,

but does pay attention to his

son’s Porsche hobby. Wayne

lives in Oklahoma but started

the family business in Fort

Worth.

Joy & Bryan Corbell

Living it UP!

All in all the evening at

Reata’s was very nice. Yes,

it took a little longer to drive

to downtown Fort Worth in

the evening traffic, but we always

enjoy the company of our Maverick Region friends.

And this time the ambiance with the excellent food was

worth the trip.

Join us in November as we go to a fine Italian place,

Bugatti’s Restorante just north of Love Field at Bachman

Lake.

See you there.

Maverick Yellow Pages

by Wendy Shoffit

Have you ever wondered who in the club is a

lawyer, doctor, accountant, architect, investment

banker, general contractor, or other professional

whose services you could use? Well, MRPCA would like

to put together an online only yellow pages for members.

These are NOT recommended referrals and we certainly

make no promises or guarantee for these services. It will

still be up to you, the consumer, to find the right person for

the job. That being said, we are

always seeing requests for club

members’ referrals. What better

way to support your PCA family

than to increase their business?

Need a flooring contractor for

your next home renovation? We

have one for you. Need someone

to turn your daily driver into

a race car? We have a few of

those, too.

This FREE advertising service will be available to all

MRPCA members and will ONLY be online. All members

will have an equal opportunity to list their name, company

name, phone number, website, email address, and simple

business category. No logos or long advertisements will be

allowed. Keep it simple.

If you are interested in putting your information (listed

above) on our website, send an email to yellowpages@

mavpca.org. If the listing is too

long, not to worry. We’ll trim it

down for you. We look forward

to having this service online for

you by sometime in December. It

will be an ongoing project, so feel

free to send your information at

any time. Obviously, though, the

sooner you get your information

in, the sooner you can get increased

business from your PCA friends.
