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
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
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
Finally, the Holiday Party will be on December 14th at
the same place we had our New Member Party this year – a

Maverick Region October 2008
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
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.
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
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
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
This was the last points-paying
autocross of the year, but if you

with a twist, sign up for this

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
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??

everyone seemed to have a great

to put on such great events.

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.

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
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.

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.

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

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
See you there.
