My Thoughts

by Jan Mayo, Managing Editor

The Christmas presents are put

away, the in-laws have gone

home, New Years’ resolutions

have been made and already broken. Know

what that means? It’s time to start Driving!

And we have some events set up and ready

for you. As we’ve done for many years

we’re starting the year with some autocross

and time trial schools.

January 17 is a Ladies/Teens school at Pennington

Field parking lot H.E.B. ISD. It’s close and convenient for

any and every body. This event is specifically designed and

intended for wives or ladies new to the club that may feel a

little intimidated with “everybody” there watching as well

as new teen drivers. It’s great fun as well as instructional.

Let that settle a couple weeks and the Autocross 101

school is March 2. Same place and same type format but is

open to everyone so ladies and teens you get a second shot

at this level of instruction.

Or are you feeling pretty good about your autocross

skills but want a refresher to tidy up some rough spots?

Autocross 102 and Time Trial 103 schools are March 15

and 16 in Mineral Wells. You get a little more speed and

action going on out there.

Maybe you’re already a seasoned driver and itching to

get out and stretch? March 8 and 9 is our first DE for 2008

and we’re going back to Eagles Canyon. This is serious

one-on-one instruction on a track. Speeds are higher and

other cars are closer. There is passing (with a point permission)

and the adrenaline factor is much higher. And boyoh-boy

is it fun.

For the time and money invested, all these driving

schools are well worth the expenditure. You’ll have some

great fun and you’ll learn and/or refine some very valuable

skills. Plus you’ll make a bunch of really great friends, like

ME! Can’t wait to see you there.

Now I’d like to inroduce you to Clayton Rote. While

walking into the Christmas Party at Lee and Linda Wilkins

home (THANK YOU VERY MUCH!) I met Clayton, a

brand new member coming to his very first event. I asked

him how he learned about the party and he said, “On the

Yahoo list.” Quickly donning my Editor Hat I asked him to

write a few words for me about how he found the list and

website and his first time experiences.

This is what he had to say:

“What a fantastic introduction to the Maverick Porsche

Club! Just think, one month ago I was driving a Camry!

My experience has been very positive, the Maverick Region

was easy to find on the internet and I was able to join the

yahoo groups site immediately ( http://autos.groups.yahoo.

com/group/mrpca/ ). The group site was a huge help in selecting

my car (thanks to Seth Higgens for his pointers) and

the technical help has been awesome (Cliff Blackshear is a

machine).

“The Holiday Party was a

great way to meet some of the

members of the club and get a

feel for all the opportunities the

club has to offer. I was impressed

with how active the club seems

to be and the wide variety of

people at the party, it was a great

time. I look forward to getting

more involved over the new year.

Thanks to the Maverick Region

Porsche Club! Clayton Rote (2001 911 Turbo).”

Thank You Clayton. It was great meeting you and I hope

to see you at some of these upcoming events real soon.

Catch My Draft

by James Shoffit, Region President

This year we are going to have

quite an assortment of Drivers

Education (DE) opportunities.

Last time I talked about the Time Trial at

MSR, and that isn’t intended to get Time

Trial people to get into DEs. But it would

be an opportunity for the DE people to get

some competitive lap times. This will not

be a substitute for a DE in any way – while there will be

instruction for those new to the track, there will not be

anywhere near the amount of lap time that you get from

our DEs.

We will have DEs this year at both Eagles Canyon

Raceway near Slidell, TX, as well as Motorsport Ranch,

near Cresson, TX. March, May, and November at ECR,

and April, September, and October at MSR. Check the calendar

page for all the details on them. Once you try them, it

is hard to stop!

Our calendar is getting filled up pretty quickly, so take

a look at it fairly often to see what has been added. It takes

a few months for all the schedules to get nailed down, so

changes trickle in for a while.

We plan to have a full year of driving, eating, competing,

and having fun with our Porsches, so come on out and

join the fun! See you soon!

The Bucket List

by Colin Graidage

If you haven’t tried it you really ought to. It’s a

sports car. That’s why you bought it. Our German

friends didn’t build it to be polished, they built it

to be driven. Ok, you can polish it if you must, but bring it

to one of our DEs and learn a lot about the car and perhaps

about yourself.

Our events are safe, challenging and fun. Our instructors

are the best in the business, our organization second to

none. Don’t leave it on your bucket list, get it checked off.

Come to Eagles Canyon in March, let me know it’s your

first time and we will look after you.

For those of you who need advanced instruction to

move to the next level or prepare for a racing career we

have a team of advanced instructors just waiting for your

call. Come try them out.

We need an equipment manager for DEs and the Club

Race. It’s an important job so if you have an interest, and

a truck, please check out the job description and get in

touch.

If you have any questions about DE, taking part or

helping out call me on 214-455-6242 or email me at

de@mavpca.org.


DE/Club Race Equipment Manager

This person will be responsible for the storage and maintenance

of all DE and Club Race equipment between events,

transportation of all equipment to and from events, setup the

evening before events and tear down at event end, coordinate

distribution, maintenance and recovery of equipment during

the event.

In greater detail –Between Events: Diagnose and fix any

radio or flag issues, assure the radios and all other equipment

is stored properly.

Before Each Event: Put the radios on charge 2 days before

the event, transport equipment to event venue, put up any pylons

and signs required .

During the Event: Attendance is nice but not required, coordinate

getting equipment distributed to workers and corner

stations, attempt diagnosis and repair of equipment problems,

assist with replacement of faulty equipment,.

End of Event: Recover all equipment distributed to workers,

note any equipment needing maintenance prior to next

event, take down any pylons, signs, flag poles, etc. Transport

equipment to appropriate storage.

A single full size pickup with a camper shell over the bed

could probably handle everything. Radio and headset boxes,

flags, flag poles etc. plus coolers and pylons.

Maverick Minutes

by Charlie Davis, Secretary

James called the meeting to order

at 7:00 PM and we started discussion

with which night was best to

hold our board meetings. We decided that

Wednesday was the best night. We will begin

meeting on Wednesday night with the

March board meeting.

The problems that Denny had with the club calendar

have been fixed. James will try to solve the problem so that

the 2008 to 2009 transition will go more smoothly. Robyn

will send calendar updates to Denny (as well as Jan) in the

future.

Lisa reported that she still has three advertisers who

have not paid for their 2008 Slipstream ads.

Charlie said he had handled a couple of Autocross/

TimeTrial classification questions. He also said that he had

not yet started on his new scoring duties, but intended to

real soon.

Clay passed around an SCCA to PCA class conversion

table for use with the 2008 rules. He reported that the

Texas stadium bus lot rents for $2500 per day, effectively

pricing that venue out of our business. He is still trying

to find a contact person for the Birdville school lots. We

canceled the two schools originally intended to be at La

Grave Field when they bumped the price for the March 30

autocross to $1500 per day. Clay has rescheduled these

events. After a little arm twisting, Clay agreed to assume

the Swap Meet Chair duties.

Bob B(ianconi) announced that the Concours Judging

School planning is progressing well, with considerable interest

and support. He will again schedule two Concour de

Elegance competitions this year. One may again be at May

at Mayo’s on May 17. The other one will be in the Fall.

One possible new venue is the Cooper Aerobics Center.

Robyn presented her Rev 1 version of our calendar.

We used it all evening!

Travis announced that all the time trials are scheduled.

We will again have six time trials, however two of these

will be held on one day… at MSR. All the details of this

event have yet to be worked out.

Tracey stunned us with the announcement that she had

a Social Committee now! Speaking on behalf of her Committee,

she reminded everyone that the New Member Party

on Saturday, January 26 was a “must attend” event for the

board members. She also encouraged everyone to attend

the dinner at Diego’s after the National Board meeting on

February 2. She has scheduled a wine tasting on Saturday,

March 1. The cost will be $20.00 per person and there is

limited room, so RSVP!

Jan invited us to look in the January Slipstream. She

tried to explain why these pictures were too contrasty…

something about Kevin Hardison no longer spending many

hours on each addition to “adjust” them. Without Kevin our

printing expense will go up about $200 per month to “fix”

the pictures. The board approved this expenditure unanimously.

Jan said that the recent advertisement for Slipstream

volunteers was successful… she has 6 to 8 people

on her volunteer list now! One of those volunteers is Tannia

Dobbins, who will create the 2-page layouts for Time

Trials and Autocrosses. That’s the good news. The bad

news is that Tannia will need a copy of InDesign. We approved

that $300 purchase. However, Andy said he might

be able to purchase it for less than that. Jan sent hugs and

kisses his way. They bounced off and the Board also felt

suitably thanked.

Bob L said that the last Happy Hour at Campisi’s was

well attended. He needs information about the 2007 new

members prior to the New Member’s Party. Andy will get

it to him.

Mark quickly reported that all insurance certificates are

ordered. Andy passed…probably exhausted by the tasks

assigned to him.

Joel announced that DE registration opened today,

Tuesday the 8 th . After some discussion, he and Lisa agreed

to again do lunches @ $10 each. Joel announced that he

sold one DE gift certificate in 2007.

Bob B(enson) is confused re safety. He thinks we have

some, but not sure. He would like a central place to store

DE equipment, now that we have two venues. He suggested

that a trailer might be a good solution. The Board wondered

if a trailer would be a target for theft? He also said that Lone

Star, Hill Country, and Maverick are jointly working on a

new DE Handbook. His biggest concern is that not much

related to safety is written down. He is working on that.

Bryan (sounding much like James) said that his sister’s

place, which is North of Plano, was available for the Father’s

Day Picnic.

Clint told the group that he has five Sunday Drives

scheduled. Taking a cue from Tracey, Clint also said he

has a “committee”…and HIS “committee” gets donuts and

shirts! He asked us if it would be OK to schedule a Sunday

Drive during a weekend when a DE is going on? His idea is

to route the “tour” to the DE and let the group observe and

perhaps do the Charity Drive at noon. Joel will talk to his

people and Clint will do likewise…

James adjourned the meeting at 8:27 PM.

A Hope Christmas

By Bill Middleton

As many of you know, the Maverick Region has

as it’s continuing charity the Hope Shelter, an

organization for women & children in need of

safe haven. Located in Mineral Wells, the Shelter receives

contributions of cash, needed items such as toiletries, clothing,

personal care items, furniture & appliances, and other

things that over the years generous Mavericks have provided

when the need arose.

Most recently, the Shelter

last year relocated into their

newly completed facility

which was conceived by

and spearheaded through

design and construction

through the hard work of a

dedicated group of Maverick

members. Last Christmas,

we celebrated the

first Christmas in the new

facility.

President James Shoffit presents Lisa

Huffaker with a check

This year, as in many years prior, a group of Mavericks

made the trip to Mineral Wells the weekend before Christmas

to help Shelter residents celebrate the holiday, and to

bring Christmas to some children who, without our help,

might have gone without this holiday.

Armed with all the wonderful donations made by all of

you who attended the Maverick Christmas Party and contributed,

and others who couldn’t make the party but made

sure their donations got delivered, the process began with

a stocking stuffing for the younger residents of Hope the

weekend before. Donated items were matched with a list

of residents, and preparations made to deliver the items the

weekend of the Party.

So, on a cold, windy, rainy Saturday; a plucky group

Photos both pages by Bob Lewis

of Porschephiles headed west to play Santa. Included in

the entourage were the Lewis’s, the Fricks, the Shoffits, Bill

Middleton, Ron Colbert, and Jan Mayo.

The residents and staff of the Shelter had waiting for

us a wonderful celebration, and the tables were overflowing

with all sorts of eats for everyone to enjoy. Once the

gifts were brought in and placed under the tree, everyone

began diving into the assembled goodies. With wrapping

paper flying everywhere and boxes, bags, and containers

opening in every corner, the celebration began. Amidst the

happy sounds and squeals of “look what I got!”, the adult

celebrants sampled the eats and socialized, renewing old acquaintances

and making new ones. Lisa Huffaker, director

of Hope, ‘worked the room’ like a pro, from residents to

kids to Maverick members, making sure that everyone was

taken care of.

One of the key events of the Christmas Party is giving

to Hope the funding derived from the Charity Autocross,

and other fundraisings for Hope. This year, we were able to

add nearly $5000 to the Hope coffers due to the wonderful

contributions of so many of YOU, our fellow Mavericks!

As is always the case, it seems that the most important

gifts shared at these settings are those without price – and

yet are free. A warm hug from one of the adult residents –

the gleeful noises of happy kids – that warm glow that stays

with you for days and days and days – giving to someone

else just because it’s the right thing to do.

The Hope Shelter is a year round operation with year

round needs. Many fellow Mavericks have over the years

been a part of this wonderful thing called Hope. If you

would like the opportunity to give a little of your time, talents,

and resources – and in return share in these gifts without

price on a year round basis, come join us.

Mrs. Santa and Her Elves

By Tinker Edwards

After years of being very active in Maverick Region

from running the Goodie Store to taking

notes at board meetings to organizing Happy

Hours to shagging cones during AX I have taken a back

seat to the going ons in the club the last few years. I read

in Slipstream that Mrs. Santa (aka Clara Lewis) and all her

elves would be stuffing stockings on December 15th for

the Hope Shelter Christmas Party on December 22 nd . Hey,

that’s down the street from me so I decided to take a peek,

see if I knew any of the elves. Not sure when the stuffing

started because when I arrived Mrs. Santa was feeding her

helpful elves – Wendy Shoffit, Jean and Dave Frick, Bob

Lewis - to a very nice spread of sandwiches and yummy

pastries..good timing on my part, eh…then another elf – Pat

Benson - showed up. After the break it was back to stuffing

stockings and I must tell you Clara must have had it so

organized because I left and came back 45 minutes later and

all the elves were gone!

Just a side note: All the items that you Mavericks have

donated over the year have made this Stocking Stuffing possible

for the Hope Shelter kids, moms and employees…

A Big Thank You!

The Group: Pat Benson, Wendy Shoffit, Tinker Edwards,

Jean and Dave Frick and, of course,

Clara and Bob (behind the camera) Lewis.

They put together30 stockings and gift bags

for the ladies and children of the Hope House.

While Ron Colbert and Bll Middleton were not at the stocking stuffing

party they have been very active in the building and work going on at

the HH Hope House

A Follow up Story

by Bob Lewis

A follow up story from last year’s Christmas

Party at The Huffaker-Hughes Hope House.

Do you recall the story in Slipstream from last

year’s Christmas Party. This was the first party

in the new shelter and the time when Lanean’s

playroom was first used by the

children. There was a story

about a Red Rocking Horse,

how it came to be and how a

precious little girl was riding it.

Well fast forward one year

and the same precious little girl

and her family are back for our

party again. But this time they

have changed. Last year they

were very reserved in their

presence. But this time the little

girl was moving through out the

party all smiles and talking with

the other children. Her brother moved around too and even

went outside by himself to swing on the jungle gym. They

were very well behaved and were enjoying the festivities.

Last year their mother stayed out of the mainstream of

conversation. But this year she was smiling and talked with

those around her. I talked with the

mother and she told me how well

the children were doing in school.

I told her how well I thought the

children were progressing and I

thought that she was doing a great

Well guess what? When they

got ready to leave, the mother came

over and gave me a hug. Boy was I speechless. This is a

shy reserved young woman and I’m almost a stranger (but

not really). How far this family had come in one year! They

were well, happy and emotionally much improved. I can’t

tell you how wonderful I felt knowing that our efforts had

had such a mighty impact on this family. This is a sign that

our Maverick Region is truly helping families in need of a

new start. Good job Mavericks!!

Jean and Dave Frick have been involved with

the HH Hope House for many years and happily

wore their Lanean’s Kids T-shirts to the party.

Mavericks Celebrate the Holidays

by Dee Lersch

Maverick annual Holiday Parties are held in

homes - thank you very much - not restaurants

or bars or office buildings. Unlike

other regions, each year Mavericks come (to a) home for

the holiday (party) – a scrumptiously decorated, warm

and welcoming Maverick family HOME - thank you very

much. There we are hugged and fed, shown treasures and

cheered, and introduced to the new family members.

On December

10 th , Lee and

Linda Wilkins

opened their

beautiful home

to more than

70 Mavericks

for our 2007

Holiday Party.

We basked in

warmth of good

friends and a

warm fire, in a

house aglow with candle and holiday lights echoed by mirrored

walls. We also played in the Wilkins’ big toybox: Joe

Yoder of Complete Garage had given the garage a makeover

and we got to investigate all those presents!

Michael Payton and Lee Wilkins

listening raptly to Steve Watkins

Tracey Gross had

arranged for Macaroni

Grill to provide delicious

food and a darling

bellini machine that was

both a surprise gift and

a definite fare vacanza.

We brought desserts

and Walmart Gift cards

for the Hope Shelter

and reminded each

other of our blessings – among which are the Mavericks

who work to share their holiday with others.

Thank you very much, Lee and Linda and Tracey.

Thank you very much.

With apologies to author C. Clarke Moore, our hearty

them again this next year as we will again . . . .

“Trivia Light” and More Prizes

by Jerry DeFeo

Hey there Porsche Fans!!!! A few months ago I

was asked if I would like to take over the Trivia

for Slipstream. I have thoroughly enjoyed doing

the research (hey, you don't really think that I knew ALL

of this Trivia 'stuph' did you?) that has allowed some of the

Q&A. In fact, I have been told that the Questions are great,

but the 'wrong answers' are even better!!!

The above title, "TRIVIA LIGHT & MORE PRIZES"

tells you what you will find in the Trivia Section of Slipstream

and the Website. We have noticed that not too many

of our great Maverick Region Members are entering the

Trivia each month and we have been searching for an answer.

So here is what we are going to do. We will have

TWO (2) Trivia Contests as long as we have space; one for

the experienced Porsche Fan with lots of knowledge; and

one for the less experienced Porsche Fan which we will call

"Trivia Light." The only real rule for playing "Trivia Light"

is that you have not won the Trivia Contest in the last five

years, AND you have not gotten more than two answers

correct in the last six months in regular "Trivia". Once you

win "Trivia Light" you will automatically be moved into

the regular "Trivia Contest". In case of a tie, we will have a

drawing to determine the winner.

This is will give our newer Members, and those with

just a cursory knowledge of the Porsche brand, a chance

to play and win also. Take a look at this month's "Trivia

Light" and see just how many you know, or can find since

you have a whole month. When you enter be sure to mark

the Subject either "TRIVIA" or "TRIVIA LIGHT" so that

we know for which one you are supplying the answers!!!

I am the ONLY person that sees your answers and NO

ONE will tease you even if you get them all wrong. So give

it a try, you have nothing to loose, and possibly something

to gain, GIFT CERTIFICATES for parts or service from our

good friends at Zim's. Good Luck!!!!!!!

Happy Hour at Campisi’s

by Bob Lewis

You never know what the attendance will be at

the December Happy Hours. You see it is very

close to Christmas and all those activities. This

year it was ever so close being on the 20 th of December.

Furthermore it was held about as far from the center of our

region as we go for Happy Hours. It was at Campisi’s at the

North Dallas North Parkway just before state highway 121.

This Campisi’s is run by the grandson of the owner of the

original Campisi’s on Mockingbird Lane in Dallas.

Photos by Bob Lewis

The happy news comes from Bonnie and Marc Thaler.

They are expecting a baby in May. It seems they had given

all of the baby things and maternity clothes to the Hope

House before the magic event happened. We will be wishing

them success during the wait for the baby. Way to go Bonnie

and Marc.

Next month’s Happy

Hour is going to Cantina

Laredo at Inwood and

Lovers Lane. We have

been there a couple of

times before. The food

and drinks are great. And

the parking is easy. See

you there.

Who is happier, Marc or Bonnie?

The fare was as expected very tasty and moderately

priced. The atmosphere was casual and the parking easy and

plentiful. This makes for a great combination. The turnout

was just in keeping with this spot. We had quite a few new

members to the Maverick Region and some longer time

ones who had not attended many of our events.

As usual in talking with new people you are surprised

at the common interests of other people you both know. We

met a partner of an Oncologist

that we know

from Irving, Robert

Weisberg. Robert has

had Porsches for years

but is just now looking

up the Mavericks. Then

there was a couple that

runs DE’s and some

club races. This was

their first social event with us. That is if you don’t count the

Yahoo group chat facility where he participates often. There

were two couples from

Denton County that came

into town for our Happy

Hour. This location was

not far from their homes

and it was convenient for

them to drive there. Welcome

Mary and Gary

Ewert! Welcome Cheryl

and Doug Koeppen!
