My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Managing Editor

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

trophy there.

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

who attended

with their families

as well: Ronald and

Arlene Santos with

their children, Tricia,

Paolo and Marco;

Richard and Maricela

Water balloon volleyball Segui with their young

son, Richard, Jr.; and

Tracey gives Mommy Bonnie a break

Thomas and Lynn Jones with their daughter, Lauren, and

Lynn’s parents, Richard and Micki Thomas.

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.

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis, Secretary

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

reaction was.

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

profitable…

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

3. Relax

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

you.

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

ground.

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

turn in.

he exits the corner.

To be continued ...

Pieces please see next month’s edition.)

Rookie Mistakes

By Scott Steider, 06 Eclipse GT

Rookie mistake number one - When a pretty blonde

walks up to you and asks if you can write,

-Say no! Now, for some definitions:

Perspective: The way in

which objects appear to the

eye.

Porsche Perspective: The

way in which objects appear

when strapped into Bryan’s

car: The one to beat.

Scott Steider making his first

“rookie mistake”.

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”

looks like.

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

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

from. Whether

we choose interesting

sites on

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.

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

competitive Parade

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

include Boise,

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

More Parade

I

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

anyone and that no one other than

himself had ever done any work

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

DE sessions.

Our DE schedule was

disrupted by broken race

cars from time to time. The

organizers were apologetic

about that and very concerned

Grid’s White Board

explains the rules

Photos by Wendy Shoffit

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

theme.

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.

18


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

and out.

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

eventualities.

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

and beverages

as do I.

See you then.
