It’s midnight and I’ve just been
reliving the joys of Parade through
the many pictures and words
supplied by everyone that was there. The
banquets, the competition, the friends. Ah
yes, the Friends from Canada & California,
Alaska & Arizona, North Dakota & North
Carolina and every place in between.
Friendly faces, hugs and smiles everywhere.
I know, fragmented sentences from a now fragmented
mind, but the fun, food and friendships are still bright in
my mind. Ask new Paraders Tracey & Ed Gross and Jeff
Herrmann & Tannia Dobbins. They’ll give you an earful
and if you sign up for Keystone, Colorado, you’ll see
what we mean.

Catch My Draft
by James Shoffit, President
Jan has informed me that I don’t get
two pages of article space again until
SHE gets a factory tour, so I will
try to make it a bit shorter this time.
We just got back from Parade, which was
in Charlotte, NC, and a little over 1,000 miles
from door to door. We towed our white car,
the 83 911 SC “street” car, which we affectionately
named Athena. Not sure why, we just did. There
is no story there. Stop asking! Anyway, as I was saying,
that car was running better than the black car, the 78 911
SC “race” car (yes, I have to put race in quotes since I seem
to never actually race it that much anymore). The black car
still had a few pieces missing before she could be put completely
back together. And, actually, we wanted to take the
white car because it had “air conditioning”. Air conditioning
is in quotes as well, because if you have ever felt what
the factory installed in SCs for cabin cooling, you would
have to agree that quotes are required. And we wanted to
do the TSD Rally, which I think has been explained quite a
few times, but it is basically several hours of intense
watching for signs and reading directions on
public roadways. The white car was just a better
choice for us this year, as we wanted to focus on
the Rally since we did so well last year (I haven’t
mentioned our first place trophy in months now!).
Autocross would just have to suffer. As pretty as
the white car is, she is no autocrosser.
So we did in fact do the rally, and due to a
few minor mistakes we ended up in 6 th place,
out of 66, which I guess is not too bad. We were
pretty proud of it anyway. And since the white
car is not that great at autocross, we were very
much pleased with Wendy’s first place trophy in
her class in Autocross as well as my second place
This was the first autocross I have been to that
had a) elevation changes, and b) banked curves!
It was on part of the infield road course of Lowe’s
Motor Speedway. The course was an absolute
blast, and once out of first gear, I never had to
change gears. I came in second place in class because
the guy that beat me had both a better car
and a better driver. That happens to me a lot. It is
a deadly combination.
But all this winning trophies is not what Parade
is about. I was trying to figure out why I
always wanted to stay at the host hotel and not
someplace cheaper, and then it struck me that…
wait for it… It’s not just the cars, it’s the PEOPLE. We get
so used to hearing and saying that (ok, for a while we said
it’s SOME of the people, but we were just being catty), that
we sometimes forget that the fun of the club is the friends
we have made and how we work together as a team to have
even more fun together than we ever could separately.
Parade has the most fascinating and interesting people
that PCA has to offer – and if you attend, you will be one of
them. I haven’t talked to a single Maverick Region member
that didn’t have an interesting story to tell. So when
you think about Parade, don’t do the math. Let’s see, I
towed 2000 miles round trip for 3 laps at an autocross (we
actually only got 2 because the white car overheated – I
TOLD you it wasn’t an autocross car). No, the reason to
go is the people you will meet, and the people you will see
from year to year. A week of vacation? Absolutely worth
it for me!
Check the calendar for upcoming events – we have fun
stuff for track nuts and tour aficionados and social butterflies.
So come on out and join the fun! See you soon!

Father’s Day Picnic
by Tracey Gross
Back in the spring, we were sitting at a board
meeting and I asked if there was anyone willing
to host this years Father’s Day picnic. Without
hesitation Bryan Bell mentioned that his sister and her husband
were interested in hosting. I said “does she know that you are
volunteering her house?” He just grinned and said “yes.”
Well for those of you that
didn’t make the trek to Celina this
year you missed an awesome picnic.
Bryan’s sister and her husband,
Nicki and Chuck Bray, have
175 acres out in Celina where they
have built every car-enthusiasts
dream home….a 5,000 square foot
air-conditioned garage with at least
7 bays and two car lifts. Included
in this space is a lounge area with
a big-screen tv, a pin-ball machine,
kitchen and wet bar.
This is only their play area
though. You see, on the second floor
Hostess Nicki Bray likes
water balloon volleyball
as much as the kids
is their beautiful home with a glorious outdoor balcony that
runs the entire length of the house. The house looks like something
out of Architectural Digest.
How many of us can say that we’ve been to a picnic that
was indoors and air-conditioned? We had plenty of room to
set up the rented tables and chairs, plus the buffet line. And
everyone enjoyed visiting with each other in the comfortable
surroundings. The kids entertained themselves with balloon
wars and eventually took it outside where these became water
balloons. They had devised a game of playing volleyball,
but with your team holding a sheet and together tossing a
water balloon back to the other side. Andrea Bell brought a
snow-cone maker and she churned out snow cones, much to
the delight of the children.
It was great to see Marc and Bonnie Thaler with the newest
Maverick Member, Addison. She is only 5 weeks old and
is as cute as a button.
We also enjoyed
visiting with some
new Maverick members
with their families
as well: Ronald and
Arlene Santos with
their children, Tricia,
Paolo and Marco;
Richard and Maricela

son, Richard, Jr.; and

It’ll be hard to top the comforts of this year’s picnic, but
we truly appreciate the hospitality that Chuck and Nicki extended.
They were excited to host the MRPCA even though
their collection of vintage cars is all Chevrolets.

Minutes of the Maverick Region
Board Meeting on July 9, 2008.
In attendance were James
Shoffit, Wendy Shoffit, Bob Kuykendall,
Darron Shaffer, Clint Blackman, Bob Lewis,
Mark Gluck, Jan Mayo, Linda Bambina, Teri
Davis, Charlie Davis, Travis Howard, Robyn
Howard, and Mike Brodigan.
James called the meeting to order at 6:59 PM. by declaring
that we need a Nominating Committee. Travis, Wendy,
and Jan were appointed.
Bob K proudly announced that the region has new checks
with “Porsche” spelled correctly. He also pronounced that we
have money, which was not obvious by looking at the midyear
financial summary that he passed around. The answer
to this conundrum is that each year we pay for major events
“up front”… things like track rental…but most of the income
doesn’t happen until later. He indicated that we were doing
better than last year. The Club Race approximately broke
even and the DE is in the black. One of Bob’s concerns,
was why the Truxster is not a profit center? He noticed that it
never has any profit!
Darron brought the timing equipment for Clay, who had
to work late. Clay wanted it to continue checking the new AX
software he is writing.
Clint said there would be a small delay before the next
Sunday Drive, which will be in September. He wondered
who was in charge of the Tech Sessions? We decided no one
was. The Autoscope Tech Session date has changed, but we
weren’t sure about this. We decided to remove this event
from the calendar until the date is firm. Clint then volunteered
to write an article about insurance.
Bob L will try Reata in Fort Worth for the Happy Hour
in September. There was some concern that it might be too
expensive? We decided to try it and see what the turnout and
Mark is up to date with ads and insurance certificates.
Jan asked Teri for an update on rallies. Teri said she was
doing them, but is behind.
Linda wondered what happened to Roundup? A big discussion
ensued. We moved some calendar dates around and
decided to try November 22-23 for the resurrected Roundup.
Teri said she will try a night rally. It will be a Hareand-Hound
type, using glow sticks instead of flour/lime bags.
She will have a gimmick-type rally on July 20. Someone
suggested it might end at Fireside Pies.
Charlie asked for support for a Truxter budget, so that he
can advertise. That way, he can rent out the Truxster and be
Travis announced that the newly formed Nominating
Committee was on schedule. He asked Bob K to send
a check to Bob Manskey (the second payment for Mineral
Ring rental). He asked Jan to list Jeff Herrmann as being
in charge of AX/TT Safety Inspection. He agreed to schedule
a debriefing of the recent double time trial. The Shoffit’s
agreed to host this meeting. There are no competitive AX/
TT events until the August 10 Autocross, to be held at the
Ballpark in Arlington parking lot.
Wendy mumbled something about “five, fast, first-place
women”… referring to the results of the Parade Autocross.
She said the Parade was good and with that, James adjourned
the meeting at 8:17 PM.
Anyone Can Drive
By Bryan Bell
Anyone can drive fast, right? You just jam the
gas down and turn the wheel when needed! It
is not that easy as it turns out. It is like a never
ending puzzle of different pieces that once you fit one in
there is another that needs worked on. That is the very reason
I am forever hooked on driving. You can never do it
right, perfect or flawless.
Bryan Bell mentors Kristi Keller
about puzzle pieces.
1. Have Vision
2. Be Smooth
4. Brake Hard
5. Push on the Gas
6. Use the Whole Track
7. Be Ready with the Gas
8. Grip with the Ground
9. Don’t Look Back
10. Put them All Together
I think the long list
of great Maverick drivers
would also tell you there is
no such thing as a prefect
lap. I have learned the best
thing to do is keep things
simple and only work on
one or two of them at a time.
Here are my top ten puzzles
pieces to work on:
Easy right? Now, let’s start discussing the details.
1. Vision - Looking ahead is by far the most important
thing in driving. Keep your eyes scanning fast from
right in front of you to as far ahead as you can. The
moment you fixate on one place - look out, it will bite
2. Smooth – The input from your hands and feet needs to
be smooth not jerky. Jerky movement from the hands
means you are not scanning ahead with your eyes.
Jerky movement from your feet means you are anxious
or not relaxed.
3. Relax – Breathe, wiggle
your fingers, release
the death grip from the
wheel and get comfortable.
Remember, this is
fun. If you are not relaxed,
you will be jerky
and lose grip with the Andrea Bell staying focused on
relaxing while in the spotlight of
Mineral Wells’ finest.
Photos by Charlie Davis
4. Brake hard – Like you mean it! No, you are not braking
hard until your seat belt hurts when you move your
foot from 100% gas to 90% brake! If you don’t brake
hard every time you go to the brakes you are cheating
yourself time on the gas.
5. Push the gas – Your
goal should be to push
the gas to the floor as
soon as the course will
let you and find ways to
keep it there. To get the
most out of this open
the wheel ASAP after Darron Shaffer pushing the gas as
he exits the corner.
To be continued ...

Pieces please see next month’s edition.)

Scott Steider making his first
It was an early start
Sunday morning. Leaving
the house at 6:00 to make it to Mineral Ring by 7:45, gave a
person a lot of time to think. What’s this really going to be
like? How will my car do? How will I do? …
Having e-mailed Clay a few days before the AX, I at
least knew the name of one person. (thanks Clay for the quick
response;) And as a normal part of my brain function, by the
time I got to the track, the number and type of car Clay was
driving had been forgotten. But while standing at registration,
someone walked up, stuck out his hand and said, Hi, I
think we e-mailed earlier this week, I’m Clay.
Now the websites all say come on out, we love to have
you. The people are friendly and everyone is willing to help,
just come and have a great time. Well, I found out that’s
TRUE, TRUE AND TRUE.
Standing around after unloading the car, I met Loren and
he offered to take me along on
his walk of the course. The first
time out you definitely could see
the term Sea of Cones. Everyone
said this was a lot bigger than
normal AX and I look forward
to seeing what the normal “Sea”
Ryan Monday gets up close and
personal with a pylon from the
Sea of Cones..
After the drivers meeting I
found myself in corner 3 working
with Betty. Being on the first work crew was nice for a
new guy. Having a chance to watch everything go helped to
take the edge off the nerves. Betty was a lot of fun to work
with and gave bits of advice at a rate you could digest. It
really helped to get me in a learning mind set ready to go.
With the switch of crews I found myself in line with Bryan
as my Instructor. He picked up right where Betty left off,
easy going and ready to have fun. His personality put you
at ease and ready to listen, practice and learn. I had a great
time with him in the car and look forward to other events and
the chance to drive with other instructors. Thanks Bryan for
the help and the ride. The track was great fun with plenty of

places to start finding the limits of the car and driver. Awe
the smell of hot brakes and rubber in the morning.
By the end of the day I was hot and tired, but still wishing
we had time for a few
more laps. The drive home
was filled with a whole different
set of things to think
about. How did I do? What
went well, what didn’t? …
Keith Olcha contributes to the smell
of hot brakes and rubber.
The smile was still on my
face as I pulled into the garage.
I feel that I got everything
and more out of the experience. A big thanks to Clay,
Betty, Loren, Bryan and many others of PCA for making
the first time a great time.

Parade for Kids
Photos by everyone there
Parade? A family vacation? No way, right? Well, if
you think that, you would be wrong and missing
out on a great experience. We have taken Jasmine
to seven Parades in her eleven years on this planet and she
has enjoyed every single one of them! Each year she looks
forward to going
and has a blast
not only while
there, but on
the drive to and
we choose interesting
the way there or
on the way home,
we try to make
that part fun, as
well. A trick we learned a few years ago is to bring a friend
with her, as well. The cost doesn’t go up that much and it
nearly guarantees they won’t be bored.
While at Parade, there are always a lot of kids around
to meet and play with. Kids from all over the country come
with their parents, also not really knowing what to expect.
I’ve yet to see a disappointed child by the end of the week.
Yeah, maybe the concours gets boring after the first couple
hours, but that’s why you schedule other activities afterwards
that day. To be honest, the concours is boring to ME after a
while, too! I know… I’m a blasphemer.
Jerry and Myra Sutton with Aubrey,
one of Maverick’s older Parade Kid!
Jasmine and Capri with
new friend Peter Porsche
Anyway, Parade organizers
have really stepped
up their game in the past
few years with kids hospitality
rooms, slot car
rooms (sponsored, of
course), RC car activities,
kids autocross, etc.
Instead of asking, “Mommy,
what is this on my
plate?” they get to dine on
pizza, chicken strips, and
other foods more suited to
their palates. Babysitting is available during the longer, less
interesting (to them) awards banquets. This year’s kids hospitality
was loaded with stuff for kids of all ages to do. The
little ones could delight in coloring, playing Candy Land,
or watching Barbie Fairytopia while the older ones had a
blast playing Rock Band or one of the other video games
with their friends. Mostly, though, it just gave them time
to become new friends with someone who lived across the
country. Jasmine and her friend, Capri, made friends with
Fran and Adam Ussery. His first
Lauren, a girl from Hilton
Head, South Carolina. They
hung out all week and even
participated in outside activities
together. The parents
were great and really came
through for us watching the
girls while James and I competed
in the 5-hour long rally.
That’s the beauty of going to
Parade with kids. We might
never have met these great
people if our kids hadn’t become
friends first! The girls can’t WAIT until next year to
see each other again in Colorado. Unless, of course, we
make it out to Hilton Head, where we’ve been invited to stay
with them. Friendships all around.
Adam concentrating on the
Zone Challenge Driving Simulator
Do I think they
should change the slogan
to “It’s not just the cars,
it’s the kids?” Nah, but
you shouldn’t be afraid
to go on a week-long vacation
with your kids to
THIS Porsche Club event.
We’ve gone to some
amazing places that we
might never have seen
if Parade wasn’t hosted
there. Some notable destinations
Milwaukee, and Charlotte. Lovely cities, all of them, but
given a list of vacation spots that I would choose… they
probably wouldn’t have been on it and we would have really
missed out. Just try one and you might be a Parade convert,
too! Next year’s trek to Keystone, Colorado… can we leave
NOW? I’ll see you and your kids there! by Wendy Shoffit
Adults acting like Kids
just returned from my first Parade after 30+ years
in PCA. My not having been to one prior had more
to do with race schedules than lack of interest. It is
often said it is “About the People.” I met one such person
last week and now feel privileged to call him a friend. He is
80 years old and we meet at Parade.
I was approached by
some people I knew and
some I had not met before
to ask if we (Zuffenhaus, a
Parade sponsor and a shop
in Charlotte which I have an
interest in) could help Mike
Mike (L) and Aaron (R) Robbins with a repair on his
getting started car. Everyone said Mike
could make the repair himself, but they were concerned because
of his age and the heat. We agreed on a time and I
brought some tools from the shop to the hotel. Aaron Winans
(one of my partners) and Mike did the work while I got
them water and took some photos.
By the way, Mike was driving his 1958 speedster with
517,000 miles. He has had the car since new and has driven
it to the last 46 Parades (he has been to 50 of the 52 Parades).
And, in spite of my speculation that Aaron would actually be
doing the work, it was not so. After watching Mike it was
A happy Mike after a
successful test drive
Peter Porsche really
enjoyed the Driving
apparent that he was as skilled as
anyone and that no one other than
himself had ever done any work
on this Speedster. All he really
needed was the jack!

Although it wasn’t his first parade, it was the
first “competitive” parade for Adam Ussery.
as a true motor-head he was in heaven walking
through the concours prep area and talking about the cars
he saw with the owners who were in full “clean mode.” It
seems he is very knowledgeable about most, especially the
race cars. Working the safety (tech) inspection tent for a
day gave him ample opportunity to see even more cars and
ask lots of questions.
Adam’s true passion is competitive driving and although
the 914 was less than cooperative, being at Lowe’s
Motor Speedway for an autocross was pretty awesome.
And hey, winning a set of Michelin tires of his choice, was
a pretty fine consolation prize.

Memorial Day DE at Eagles Canyon
by Colin Graidage
Memorial Day weekend was hot. We were
blessed with some cloud cover for the first
part of the day Saturday and a violent overnight
storm that left clouds in the sky for much of Sunday
morning. It also left all unpaved areas of the paddock soft
and muddy. Now, for those of you who drove with us in
March this was not the same “muddy” that you recall, just
the regular old 2 inches of
rain “muddy” this time.
Memorial Day weekend
has traditionally been
Maverick’s race and Solo
DE weekend. The focus, of
course, is on the racing and
this year for the first time,
Eagles Canyon provided us
with a new venue and some
great racing to watch between
Our DE schedule was
disrupted by broken race
cars from time to time. The
organizers were apologetic
about that and very concerned

that the DE drivers should not feel that their time was being
wasted or used up needlessly. In the event we made up all
lost time and then added more on the Monday by finishing
the event with an hour long, come and go, DE session. That
was the first time we had tried that and it left drivers sitting
around glassy eyed and wondering if they had enough brake
pads to get back home. Tired, but happy seemed to be the
Two groups of solo only drivers meant we had enough
experience on the track for lots of people to have lots of fun.
Heat was the biggest threat, followed closely by “would the
track hold up?” It did, just barely. At times, turn 1 seemed
more like off roading than race track and for some of us, of
course, it was.
The dinner Saturday evening and the Sunday Happy
Hour were noisy and a lot of fun. It was good to mix with
DE drivers from various Texas regions and some who had
driven or flown in from outside the State and Country. We
had racers from Louisiana, Oklahoma and California as well
as all parts of Texas. The National staff, present primarily
for the racing, seemed to enjoy the whole atmosphere and
commented on the high quality of the DE driving. We were
glad to have them with us.
So, in summary, a great weekend with plenty of track
time, some good racing to watch, nice people, good food
and a young lady who brought tears to our eyes as she sang
the National Anthem most beautifully and we remembered.
Thanks to our Major sponsor Boardwalk Porsche and
especially to Cliff Blackshear who works so hard at these
events. Thanks to PST for track support and to all of our
sponsors and advertisers. Thanks also to our DE committee
many of who morphed into Club race committee for this
event and of course to our corner workers and control who
do such a masterful job. Until the next time, take care.

You Deserve It! (and so does your Porsche)
by Jim Davis
If you have not yet treated yourself to a DE Event,
you need to move it to the top of your list. I have
just completed my first DE, and it far exceeded my
expectations in every way! I ventured out on April 12 and
13 for a DE with the Maverick Region at Motor Sports
Ranch (MSR) in Cresson. I hoped to begin learning to
drive my Porsche the way it was meant to be driven. I
accomplished this, but the weekend included many more
wonderful aspects than just driving.
First, and unexpected to me, was that the weekend was
like a great private car show! There was a beautiful array
of current day Porsches, from the entry level cars to
the twin turbos. There were beautiful, concours models,
and full-on race cars with stripped interiors, roll cages and
“enhanced” engines. There were vintage Porsches in all
shapes, sizes and ages.
Next, the weekend was a great social time, with opportunity
to meet people with similar interests, learn a
lot about cars, driving, and Porsche enthusiast resources.
Classroom time and driving time are spread out through the
day, and in between, you can wander about, making some
great contacts. From some very experienced owners and
drivers, I learned about which enhancements worked (and
did not work) on my car, and the best shops for modifications.
I chatted with the techs that work on the cars, and got
a real sense of their character, diligence, and enthusiasm. I
also met many funny, interesting and articulate people who
enjoy living life large and having a good time.
What about the meat of the weekend, the driving? That
was also a joy from beginning to end. After you sign up
on-line, you are given links to the DE handbook and other
information, which does a great job of detailing step-bystep
how the weekend works. If you are detail oriented, you
can memorize all this info. A lot of the new drivers also just
“showed up”, with very little preparation (given the weekend
as a gift, for example). The cheerful and experienced
instructors take it all in stride.
As a beginner, you start with classroom time, and then
have four 20 minute driving sessions spread throughout the
day. You will have an instructor with you at all times in the
car. Your pace is what you are comfortable with – you will
not be forced (or allowed) to do anything unsafe. I saw NO
incidents with the beginners. I did see one of the drivers in
an advanced group slide off the track into the grass, but then
he just waited for an open spot and continued. This track is
nice and roomy, with large, flat run-off zones at most turns.
You would have to work hard to have a real problem.
At the beginning of the first driving sessions, the instructor
will drive your car for a few laps to show you the
course. The MSR 3.1 mile course has many turns and elevation
changes. It is an exciting and challenging road
course. I would recommend spending a little time with the
track map, and watch the video here: http://www.motorsportranch.com/MSR-Video.cfm
to get acquainted before
your weekend. After a couple of laps, you are in the driver’s
seat, and back out on the track!
Your instructor will show you “the line”, the fastest
way through the course. As your comfort grows, you will
be able to take your speed up, lap by lap. While traveling
the circuit, you will be gently urged to stay on line, watch
the flag stations, watch other cars, and develop your shifting,
braking and cornering skills. Though it sounds like a
lot, you soak it up gradually. Your instructor, meanwhile,
is watching out for you. One very important safety habit is
to watch the flag stations, and know what the flags mean. I
guarantee, on your first day, you will see less than half the
flag stations because you will be so caught up in the fun and
excitement of driving. Not to worry – your instructor is
seeing them all, and will call your attention to anything you
should know. Similarly, if you are carrying too much speed,
or are off line, your instructor will let you know in plenty of
time to get the car where it needs to be.
At lunchtime, there are “Parade Laps” for charity. For a
donation, you can drive (and take a guest) around the track
at lower speeds. I STRONGLY recommend this for beginners!
Take some trail mix or an energy bar for refueling,
and circle the course at low speed. Without the demands
of high speed, you can review the turns, apexes, entry and
exit positions of the car, and get a great visual sense of the
course burned into your memory. All this, and your donation
helps a great charity, too!
After lunch, there are more driving sessions. After the
last session, the drivers gather for beer, snacks, and discussion
of the day’s events. It is a great way to let down a bit,
and then head back to your hotel. I would not schedule
much in the way of activities for the evening, because you
WILL be exhausted.
The next day, you will continue with a classroom session,
then four more driving sessions. You will improve
your speed, smoothness, and comfort at driving fast.
At some time late the first day, or early the second day,
see if you can get a ride with your (or another’s) instructor
during THEIR driving time. This is often possible, and will
really help you see all that you are being taught put into action.
A few caveats: You (or your instructor) may want to
plan to do just a couple of laps, then drop you off back at the
pits. You may also want to agree on a signal to indicate that
you are ready to be dropped off in the pits. It is not uncommon
for passengers to get motion sickness, so setting up
good communication is worthwhile.
You should also be prepared to initially be outside your
comfort zone. The instructors are very good, with lots of
experience and track prepped cars. They will be cornering
at rates that seem crazy to you at first, but try to hang
in there. After the initial shock, you will see that they are
driving the line that they taught you, using the entire width
of the track, maintaining speed in the corners – showing
you the practical effects of doing it the right way. It is very
impressive, and will help you improve your driving as you
slowly expand your limits.
Your last run session of the second day, you will be much
faster, smoother, and more comfortable at high speeds. You
will be beginning to explore the real abilities of your car.
Whether you go on to spending every weekend at the track
(as many there do), or just making a “once a year” track
weekend to keep your skills up, you will forever be a better,
safer driver. The next time some idiot stops in the middle of
the freeway, or drops a box off the back of their truck, you
will KNOW that you can snap around them, or decelerate in
an instant, then whip through any opening. The confidence
you will gain in your abilities and your Porsche’s would be
worth enduring some hardship. The fact that you can make
these gains while having a fun and memorable weekend,
make this a deal you cannot afford to miss!

Happy Hour at Abuelo’s
by Bob Lewis
The June Happy Hour was held at Abuelo’s Mexican
Restaurant in Lewisville. Abuelo’s is one
of a chain of Mexican themed restaurants with
excellent and moderately priced food and beverages. They
have the ambiance and looks of a Mexican Cantina both inside
The manager put us
in a private room
and expected about
25 people. When
over 30 persons had
arrived I asked him
for more tables. He
put more tables and
Sarah & Bob Jandrucko chairs together and
helped take dinner
orders. Before this one waiter was very busy with all of us.
Never the less this didn’t slow us down from enjoying each
others company and from eating our dinner.
When it came time to receive and pay
our checks only having the one waiter
contributed to a bottle neck. Well one
of our regular attending Mavericks
took this lull in the evening to feel
faint. Her husband diagnosed her
Photos by Wendy Shoffit
condition as an overdue
period before her medicine for
a medical condition she has. But her
being stretched out on a couple of chairs
was an alarming sight. But never let it be said the
Maverick’s don’t create activities if there is a lull. Since vacation
season was approaching some of the conversations
went into that direction too. This provided a lesson for the
Happy Hour committee to be prepared for larger scope of
Abuelo’s was another location that is new to the Happy
Hour location rotation this year. I feel we will go there again next
year. The management, staff, and food were very well received.
Next month we are going to gather at The Southlake
Tavern. This is on Southlake Blvd. in where else but Southlake,
TX. This is a favorite of mine and I feel sure you will
like their food
as do I.
See you then.
