Mike Brodigan, President

I

held off for eighteen

months, but I just can’t

take it anymore. Not

once since I have been Prez,

have I used this column to brag

about my grandkids, but I just

have to do it just this once. I

just got back from spending a

week with my daughter Kelly and her family. She, Joel and

the kids live in Denver so we can’t be everyday Grandma

and Grandpa, but when we do get our hands on them, boy

do they get spoiled! Michael Brodigan Walter is my four

year old grandson. He calls Judy “Funny Grandma,” and I

am “Race-car Grandpa.” We like those names. Every time

Michael comes to our house, he gets in the race-car to see

if he is big enough yet. It will come all too fast. Grace

Evelyn Walter is our two year old granddaughter. Just like

her mom. Payback is hell, but she is so darn cute! She

gets away with just about anything. Beautiful aren’t they?

We have some special social

events planned for this summer. Our

“Round Up” celebration will be held

in Grapevine August 6th, 7th, and

8th. All sorts of fun activities are

planned: A little wine tasting, a car

show, an Elvis review, and a Sunday

drive, just to name a few. Check the

ad in this month’s Slipstream and

save the dates. We are also planning

a day at the horse track in July. We will all get together

for “Porsches and Ponies” July 17th at the beautiful Lone

Star Park in Grand Prairie. We might even place a bet

or two. In June, we are throwing a Father’s Day party at

Speed Zone, and don’t forget all the neat stuff we do every

month. Check our website for all the scoop.

We still need some helping hands and some extra cash

to keep our Huffaker Hughes Hope House project rolling.

To all of you who have contributed your time or treasure:

Thank You! There is still time to give a little extra to make

the lives of the Women and Children at the HHHH a little

more comfortable.

that kind of person and he is the June “Mav of the month.”

He is the DE chairperson, and with his leadership the

program continues to grow and improve. I can’t tell you

the number of members who have made a point to let me

know just how great a job John is doing. John, thanks for

all you do! See y’all soon,

For being the Maverick of the Month, The Silver

Fox in Grapevine is giving John dinner for two at

their award winning steak house.

John, thanks for all you do! Mike

Mav of the Month

Our “Mav of the Month” is John Hamilton. Our DE

program is the largest single activity Maverick region

does. To make it work, it takes a leader who is competent,

enthusiastic, and a problem solver. John Hamilton is just

Richard Bradley, Managing Editor

This has certainly been a month

worth remembering. And for

those in the inner circle, you

know my reasoning. Make sure to enjoy

every minute while driving your Porsche,

one never knows when it will be your last.

By the time you read this, I am hoping that

I’ll be driving a new Boxster, but as we all

know, we aren’t guaranteed our desires.

We had plenty of events this month that seemed to have

been phenomenal, as well as more to come next month

including our National Parade. Parade is where you will

make friends that will last a lifetime and truly believe that it’s

not just the cars, it’s the people! Along with seeing old friends

and making new ones, there’s always plenty of eye candy to

take in. I trust there will be plenty of stories and images I’ll

be sharing on upcoming Slipstream pages.

I’ve been making more changes to Slipstream that I hope

you like along with help from several talented individuals.

We are always looking for new ideas and hands to help in the

fun, so if you are willing, I’ll be more then happy to bring you

on and let you share in the fun.

Hope to see you soon, Enjoy

Maverick Minutes

Lisa Steele, Secretary

Hola, ¿Cómo estás esta noche?

Ooops! I am still in Cinco

de Mayo mode. Okay, back

to the real minutes from our May 5th

meeting. We had a large group join us

this month with a few new faces. We

welcome Winston Barrant, Tom and

Susan Froehlich, and Michael Pelletier to

their first Board Meeting.

Steve Boyd, who is not new to MAVPCA (he was

our former webmaster), but this may have been his first

Board Meeting, started our roundtable discussion with

Boxstoberfest. Steve is seeking insurance from our Region

for a one day tour that is a part of Boxstoberfest in the Hill

Country. After some discussion about drivers on this tour

driving at posted speeds, Clint Blackman made a motion

to give insurance to Boxstoberfest with the condition that

Steve will have the event organizers and the tour drive

leaders sign a written statement that they will maintain

the posted speed limits on the drives and that all drivers

will sign the agreement as well. Jan Mayo 2nd the motion.

Motion approved.

Mike Brodigan and Linda Bambina presented the next

item up for discussion. After the playground equipment

has been installed at the Huffaker Hughes Hope House,

there is currently $1,878 remaining from monies collected

from fundraising efforts. This amount is clearly not enough

money to finish all landscaping plans for the backyard. The

playground equipment is not safe to play on until specific

materials are placed under and around the equipment.

There were some concerns voiced regarding the amount

of latitude the board has in voting for cash donations

without giving the at large members an opportunity for

input. Therefore, Mike motioned that at the June Board

Meeting we will vote on a contribution of $5,000 for

the Hope House. Prior to this meeting Mike will send an

email blast to ask for comments from the other members.

At the June meeting we will also Amend the budget to

always include a line item for the Hope House. Jan 2nd

the motion…approved. The $1,878 will go to making the

playground safe for the kids to play on.

Monda Hanna was present to announce Bob Lewis’

departure from the Happy Hour Committee. The

committee will include Monda, Mike Lockas, and Chris

Christensen. Monda did mention that they would love to

have a photographer join their group to help takes pictures

for articles. The next HH will be at Abuelo’s in Lewisville.

Jan Mayo reported that we have a new advertiser on

p.28 of this issue…turbolubricants.com

Bob Lewis was present, but had nothing to say. Lots of

claps around the room for Bob’s wonderful work finding

fabulous Happy Hour locations each month.

Jim Falgout was happy to report that “we have money.”

Ed Mullenix reported that there are currently 16

people signed up for his Saturday Tech Session at his shop.

Tom and Susan Froehlich were present to announce

that they are co-chairing with Tom and Barbara Minnella

to bring us Round-Up 2010. The tentative date is set for

August 6th –August 8th. Susan passed out a very detailed

schedule of events. This looks like an event you do not

want to miss. All activities will be in the Grapevine area.

Carey Spreen announced that he is working on ideas

for the next Rally.

Jack Griffin reported that The Concours event on June

6th at the Cooper Aerobic Center, will have a “Porsches in

the Park” within the Autos in the Park event. There will

be a special area for all Porsches to park and be judged for

our own Concours event.

Robyn Howard announced that she will be working

with Christy Payne to change the Autocross/Time Trial

ads in slipstream. The next AX is scheduled for May 16th

and the next TT is on May 23rd at MSR.

Travis Howard reported that the last Autocross/Time

Trial weekend was cancelled due to heavy rain. There

were not enough people present to safely run the event

and the rain caused puddles, puddles, and more puddles.

Travis announced that there will be a cap of 48 people

for the MSR event. He also noticed that the ad in the

8


April issue of Slipstream had wrong information, but the

website is correct.

Michael Pelletier took in the whole experience of the

Board Meeting and said “hello.”

Clint Blackman said that he is going to go chase

dinosaurs on his next Sunday Drive. The drive will be

driving through Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose.

Pat Friend reported that the Goodie Store website is

going great and he will be helping Jack with the “Porsches

in the Park.”

Wendy Shoffitt reported that she is working on Club

Race. There are currently 30 racers signed up. She also

announced that there will probably be a Pre-Parade get

together dinner before everyone leaves for St. Charles, IL.

Wendy also made the recommendation that Carey Spreen

be nominated for our enthusiast at this year’s Parade. What

a wonderful choice…Go Carey, go Carey!! Wendy also

gave us the next location for the 2011 Parade. It will be in

Savannah Georgia.

And on that note…the meeting was almost adjourned.

Mike had to announce our Mav of the Month. It is none

other than our very own DE Chair…John Hamilton. VERY

well deserved!!!

Meeting adjourned at approximately 8:30pm.

Cars, Planes & Kids at the 2010 Porsche Parade!

by Cole Scrogham

OK, it’s not Planes, Trains and Automobiles,

but it’s pretty close! You might be thinking

from the title that the Parade staff is planning

something special and you would be right!

Are you ready for a “new” kind of Welcome Party at

the Parade this year? What about combining our annual

get together with a fundraiser

benefiting Advocate Hope

Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn,

Illinois; which will feature a

grand prize drawing for a brand

new 2011 Cayenne S! This is the

first Parade fundraiser of its kind-

- one benefitting a major non-profit hospital dedicated to

saving children’s’ lives.

That’s right, this family themed event will award one

lucky winner with a 2011 Cayenne S… do we have your

attention yet?

The Pirelli Welcome Party at the 2010 Porsche Parade

will come in a brand new format. PCA members will be

joined by Hope Children’s Hospital donors and leadership

and both Porsche AG and Porsche Cars North America

will be showcasing their products alongside Pirelli. We

are making a big investment to ensure everyone will be

impressed throughout the evening—and we’re certain it will

pay off!

The Pirelli Welcome Party will be held in an airplane

hangar at DuPage County Airport’s brand new Flight Center

adjacent to the headquarters hotel. Be sure to sign up to

attend this banquet

so that after you

get settled in at the

hotel, you can come

over and join us.

On display at the

airport will be old

warbirds, vintage

Porsche cars and new Porsche products. Live and silent

auctions benefiting Hope Children’s Hospital will add to the

ambiance of this unprecedented event.

The menu for the evening will feature local specialties

that are rich in Chicago tradition, including deep dish

“Chicago Style” pizza, hot dogs (with all the traditional

“Chicago” trimmings), Italian beef sandwiches, barbecued

ribs and cheesecake. Local wineries and microbreweries

will provide seasonal beverages. If you skipped the

Welcome Party on your meals list, you might want to go

ahead and add this one back in. This will be one of the best

Welcome Party meals ever!

Now—more about that exciting raffle! Tickets cost

$150 each and all proceeds will benefit Hope Children’s

Hospital. Hope is a specialty hospital staffed by over 175

pediatricians representing 30 specialties and subspecialties.

Since opening in 1996, Hope has been committed to

providing not only highly skilled medical expertise, but

also quality care that is private, child-friendly, familyfocused

and compassionate. The drawing will be held

at approximately 9 p.m. at the Pirelli Welcome Party.

To deepen our partnership, Hope Children’s

Hospital will host a Chicago Region Show and

Shine event prior to the Parade on June 13 and will

participate in PCNA’s Porsche Sport Drive Event the

day before the Parade begins. For more details on these

events, or Hope Children’s Hospital, please visit www.

advocatehealth.com/porsche.

There is still time to register for the Parade at http://

parade2010.pca.org/, this event is just one more excuse to

help you find the time to explore the Porsche Club of

America’s premiere event of the year. This will be a family

themed event, including your family —and the Porsche

family, too!

GeorGe edwards,

Park Place Porsche

enthusiast:

PushinG the

Performance

enveloPe.

I bought my 1990 Porsche C2 because it was previously owned by a Park Place

client who had his service done at Park Place Porsche. Since then, the cosmetic and

performance upgrades have been performed there as well – from Big Red Brake

Calipers/Rotors, RSChip and Suspension to racing pedals and the RS America Wing.

It’s both street-worthy and track-worthy and, even though it has more than

180,000 miles on it, runs great. Unlike other brands, a Porsche is built strong, so

as a high-mileage car, it’s still strong and robust enough to track at high speed.

And I love that you can drive it in a high-performance fashion and still drive it

on the street the next day. It doesn’t have to be a garage queen; you can drive,

and drive hard, and the next day it actually starts.

As someone who does his research to properly maintain his vehicle for the track,

while keeping it street legal, I most value the quality service and detailed advice

I get at Park Place Porsche. I feel good knowing that I’m using genuine Porsche

parts, and that both Park Place and Porsche stand behind them with warranties

on the parts and labor. It’s so important – I can’t emphasize this enough – to

have the confidence and peace of mind that the work has been done correctly,

and that Park Place stands behind it.

Bluebonnet Sunday Drive

By Paul Valdez

It has been said that we can thank God, Lady

Bird Johnson, and the Texas Department of

Transportation for the wonderful Bluebonnets.

But to that list, we must thank Dr. Porsche for providing the

perfect car from which to view the scenery. Thirty eight

bright and shiny

Porsches, including

two vintage 356’s,

Boxsters, 911’s, a

couple of 928’s,

and our first ever

Panamera made this

annual event the

best ever. We even

had one Chevrolet

Suburban with

two PCA members

from Santa Barbara

California. They heard of the legendary Maverick region

Bluebonnet tour, and wanted along for the ride as they

were in town, sans their Porsche.

Cliff’s Ramblings

by Cliff Blackshear

By the time you read this, the

May Memorial Weekend Club

Race will have concluded.

It’s mid May and we Mav’s are hosting a

Club Race on Memorial day weekend. I

absolutely love this event. I’ve worked in

tech inspection for many events in a row

and just love the experience. It’s fun to be

an observer. Plus, it is at Eagles Canyon where David and

Linda Cook are the track owners and just a delight to be

around. We are so lucky to have them in the area. If ya ever

get the chance to have a libation with them and discuss all

things automotive, you will be highly entertained as they are

an amazing couple.

I already envision how things will

unfold for the race. Friday, in tech, we

will weigh a huge number of cars and

the PCA Scrutineer will be there to

check logbooks as well as help new,

first time racers get their logbooks in

order. This will go into the evening till

maybe 7:00 PM. First time race cars

will be looked over very carefully. Are

the belts properly wrapped and pinned? Is the battery tied

down correctly? Is the cage correct and safe as well as legal?

Does the shut off system work correctly? Many, many things

to consider. For me, I want the driver to be safe. I leave it to

the scrutineer to decide if it is correct for the class entered in.

It’s so fun to meet the drivers, see their cool cars and just

send them on their way ready for friendly (most of the time),

combat.

Workers for grid, hot pits, flag stations will meet each

morning around 7 AM. Then be on station around 7:50 AM.

Checking in on radios to control just before 8:00 am. “Cars

on course” at 8:00 sharp. 99.99% of this will be orchestrated

by volunteers from our club.

I marvel at every ones ability to tie everything together.

Multiple people always stand out in my “Club Race World.”

I’ll name some here quickly and know I’m leaving many out

(please forgive me). Bob Benson, always seems to be in hot

pits and on top of everything. His wealth of experience is

amazing in this realm. Jan Mayo, will be working grid. She

seems to dance among the cars lining them up with perfect

precision, and that always present smile. Lisa Steele, will

appear to be in about 20 places at one time. If you need

something she can make it happen. Christy Payne, can find

anyone you need to talk to and always knows who is assigned

to what task. Christy is always available for anything needed.

Plus the ever present Wendy Shoffit, who also seems to be in

about 20 places at once as well.

PCA Race Weekend

Well guys it is the women and a few token guys that make

this gig go. Joel Nannis, Michael Wingfield, Keith Olcha, etc.

are crucial in this endeavour and there’s too many more to

mention. I know I sit and marvel at everyone’s hard work and

prowess at this event every year. Yet it is the girls that run this

gig..... How funny is that?

Once test and tune is done on Friday, business gets serious

on Saturday. DE (solo only) is perfectly intermixed with all

the race activity and that is so cool. Practice sessions will

begin, then sprints. Practice starts are always entertaining to

watch, will take place.

So many classes of cars will be on course. For me too

many classes and rules to spend time figuring out. I’ll just

strive to make sure they are safe if they

come into tech inspection. But, it’s the

cars, drivers and all those workers that

make the whole event so fun to simply

watch from the technician perspective.

Cup cars, Boxster’s, 993’s, 964’s,

Carrera’s, SC’s, mechanical injected

and those with carburetors, early

lightweight 911’s, 968’s, 944’s, 914’s

some of the cars turbocharged. This is fun stuff.

Sunday will roll around and we will see how things sort

out. By then we will have had a great party Saturday night,

much will have been discussed about track conditions, who is

quick and who might be sandbagging. Who broke and where

that situation is.

Another cool thing is that everyone helps everyone. If

one participant needs a part or a special tool and someone

else has it? No problem. People jump right in and help each

other make grid. Not only help with a part or tool, but jump

in and lend a hand in any way needed. That is so awesome.

I want to dedicate some time here to the flag and safety

people. The folks in our region that work the individual

corners, grid, hot-pits etc. at all the different race tracks are

amazing to me. I’ve worked as a corner worker for CVAR on

a couple occasions as a novice workers, trying not to make

a mistake. That experience has given me a chance to realize

just how good these people are. A huge number of them have

worked thousands of events. Events ranging from Formula 1,

ALMS, NASCAR, SCCA, 2 wheeled events etc.

When on station at a corner, it is best to have someone

looking upstream and someone looking downstream. Plus

someone for communication with race control. That is what

I understand to be a minimum number needed for each

corner station. Each person has to be so observant. They have

a racers life in their hands in so many ways. If an incident

A Novice View: 1971 Sun Valley Porsche Parade

by Andrew S. Chisholm

As a young rookie Porsche owner, I discovered

the benefits of PCA membership after joining

in 1969. What really got my attention was

this wonderful Panorama magazine that appeared in my

mailbox each month. In the days when there were no

electronic means of communication (as we practice today),

and Porsche ownership was somewhat rare, this magical

Porsche-only publication was a real treat to receive.

Panorama’s pages included

lovingly written articles about

Porsche cars and the people who

drove them. It featured advertising

of Porsche stuff to buy, upcoming

events to attend, Porsche factory

news and stories of Porsche racing

from all over the world. One event

that caught my eye was the annual

PCA convention, referred to as

the Porsche Parade. In 1971, Sun

Valley, Idaho would be the location.

I just had to attend.

I must admit being somewhat intimidated at attending

such an extravaganza. Some of those famous people

mentioned in the “Pano” would be there. No one from my

region was going to attend. How would I do competing

against all of those experienced and accomplished Porsche

drivers? Maybe I should sit this one out. Or just attend

and take pictures. I decided to enter the autocross and the

hill climb competition. At least I had some local autocross

experience.

After a wonderful trip in my 1969 912, I drove into the

parking lot of the Sun Valley Lodge. It was a beautiful place,

but my first fear had come true. There I was in the midst

of hundreds of Porsches and I knew no one. However, no

sooner than I had switched off the ignition, I was approached

by an official-looking guy in a Castrol Oil hat. Uh oh, I

must be parked in the wrong place. He had spotted my

Virginia license plates and came over to introduce himself.

Turns out he was Dan Rowzie of the Potomac region. Dan

and I had met at a couple of PCA events back east, and he

was one of those famous people with his name in the Pano,

as he served as the National Public Relations guy for PCA.

Dan introduced me to the members of his group and invited

me to park with them in the concours prep parking lot. So

much for not knowing anyone 2000 miles from home!

Tuesday was concours day with over 100 Porsche cars

displayed for judging. It is hard to explain the impression

that spectacular scene had on me. I used all of the film for my

camera that I had brought with me and wished I had more. I

went from Porsche to Porsche, taking notes and pictures and

talking to most anyone who would listen. What a wonderful

day! The owners of the Porsches displayed all seemed to

have a special story about their cars and were anxious to tell

the story. Back at the Lodge late that afternoon, I thought

that this sort of gathering was not just about the cars, but

the very special people who drive them. Maybe there is a

slogan brewing there.

I was real nervous about the

autocross. If there is any event

where I can display my skills, the

autocross is it. On Wednesday

morning, I showed up early to make

sure that I was prepared. First, the

912. Just take all movable items

from the interior and trunk, take

off the hubcaps (yes, hubcaps)

and adjust the tire pressures. For

a “stock” class Porsche, that is

about it and not much has changed

over the years. As for driver prep,

walk the course and make sure you

know exactly where you want to go. One main thing about

the autocross game is not to hesitate while you wonder

where the course goes.

The Sun Valley autocross was held on public streets,

some of which were roads in front of houses and condos

not yet built. This made for kind of a “road cross”, fun

to drive and safe for the drivers. The 912 class was well

represented, with 23 cars entered as four cylinder Porsches

were pretty common. As the 912 group lined up for the

start, I thought I should have a pretty good chance to do

well. Lots of different colors and years of 912s were staged,

but all seemed somewhat the same, making it close to a

“spec” class.

The flagman waived the green and I was off on my first

Porsche Parade autocross. This was big time for me and I

wanted to make a good showing. I did OK following the

course, made a couple of mistakes in the “turn around” area

where I thought I should shift to first gear and ultimately

finished 7th in class. I was kind of disappointed with my

performance, but only 2.34 seconds from the first place

time of 1:51.69. At the autocross banquet, I was awarded

a trophy for my efforts and received applause from those in

attendance. Wow, I was one notch down from the Indy 500!

Upon arriving home, I had all of my pictures developed

and thought that I sure would like to have one of my 912

in action during the autocross. A great idea would to be

to put a request in the Mart section of Pano, so I sent in

20


an advertisement to the Wanted section. After all, lots of

people were there and maybe someone would have a picture

that they would share. I never got a response from my ad,

but the Pano editor took note of my request and published

a picture of my 912 and me in action at the Sun Valley

autocross.

There, in the September, 1971 issue of the Porsche

Panorama, for all the world to see forever, is a picture of

me autocrossing with the windshield wipers on full blast. It

was not raining. Be careful of what you wish for.

In the minds and memories of all who attended the Sun

Valley Parade, it has always been known as one of the best

ever, especially for it’s time. I was fortunate to have been

there. I have that 7th place trophy around here somewhere,

but the memories of the folks who were there remain

today. People such as Dan Rowzie, Walt Woodhead and

Bob Harper and their friends and family of the Potomoc

Region made my first Porsche Parade a neat experience.

My attendance at 28 Porsche Parades since has added many

more lifetime Porsche friends as the years have gone by.

Check out the next Parade, where ever it may be held, for

lifetime memories of your own.

Oh, one more thing. I have been practicing at this

autocross thing and want you six guys who beat me in Sun

Valley to know that I want a re-match!

Continued Ramblings

occurs in their area of responsibility, much has to be done

instantly. Warn oncoming cars of a situation, digest the

event and record car number/color, communicate with race

control, be prepared to rush to a car with serious problems

such as fire, driver impact trauma, etc. Know how to put out

a fire, extract a driver from a car, it is very serious when any

incident occurs.

When lunchtime occurs and everyone gathers, you will

see this group come in and sit together for some quick food

before going right back on station. Go say hello. Good people.

I know for a fact that almost all the drivers on course will

give each corner station a wave on their cool down lap as a

show of recognition and respect. I’ve also seen some come by

after the track goes cold and just say hello and be sure these

workers know they are appreciated.

After the first time I worked an event on a corner I made

sure that when this Club Race event comes around my shop

has something just for them. It isn’t a big deal, but I want them

to be a little more appreciated at the event my shop sponsors.

A tee shirt or cap, something to show our appreciation.

This, to me is the best time of year. Good weather, many

events, everyone is coming out of the winter cave......

Member Spotlight: Wade Andres

by Andrea Bell

I

am pleased to introduce to you

another new Maverick member

this month, Wade Andres. Wade

comes to us with quite a history of Porsches

in his family. One of those cars is a 1991

964 C4 that he bought new with a trade

in of a Guards Red 1986 Coupe. He says

he drove off regretting leaving the clutch,

steering and long throw shifter for an easy chair car. He said

you can tell when my

son Zach is driving

the 964, because he

puts the tail up! It

has 42,000 miles and

has been lowered

with big torsion bars.

Until last Sunday’s

autocross, he thought

those were going to be

decent modifications.

Instead, he learned

that he should have kept his first Porsche, a 1973 914, green

2.0. In ‘83 he wanted to turn it into a track car, but got busy

with graduate school, earning a living, etc. It turned out

to be a great weekend car for hauling bikes to White Rock

Lake and was eventually it was replaced by a 1983 Carrera.

That ‘83 turned into an ‘86, and a first marriage. The

‘91 was purchased with an $8,000 discount from Porsche

after the best deal you could make on the car. At the time,

the performance numbers appealed to a big block teenager

so it was done, with early regrets. However, Wade’s sons,

Travis, now 19, and Zach, now 17, grew up in the ‘91 so it

is hard to lose. Wade

added, “Also there

is something about

an air cooled car,

the way they sound,

handle, smell - it is a

lost era.” He’s hoping

he can make it into a

fun car that the boys

and he can both enjoy.

In 2006, he

wanted a new car and found the ‘06 S - a wonderful, beautiful

car. He added, it is big, fast and comfortable, but not as

engaging as the air cooled. Two years ago, he purchased an

‘05 Turbo S RUF 550. He said, “It is a car that is a status

symbol - you are not worthy! It will push your eye balls

back in their sockets crazy, but like I said, a status symbol.”

Wade has also raced in the American Power Boat

Association and then later on sport bikes but said he realized

the safety percentages were no longer in his favor.

Wade added that he has already been really impressed

with the friendliness that he has encountered in every PCA

event that he has

been involved

in and added the

Maverick website

is great. He said

he really looks

forward to making

some great friends

and enjoying a

sport that he can

really enjoy and share with his kids. He added at the end,

“Hey Autocross guys - I will not look at my times, nor squeal

my tires! But watch out because I might be a sleeper! I may

be too old to ever get into their league – but I want to try!”

We are pleased to have Wade and his family, join our

Maverick family. If you are a new member and would like to

be considered for our monthly “SPOTLIGHT’ feature,

please contact me at pr@mavpca.org.

Happy Hour at Bavarian Grill

by Chris Christensen

Sprechen sie Deutsch? It would

be fun even if we did remember

just a little of our High School

or College German for that matter. We

all know the story today regarding our

European friends, most speak at least

two languages fluently. So if you want

to practice your German while downing

a few Pilsner brews it is entirely possible to do so at the

Bavarian Grill. Look at this way…if you visit often enough

you may even become fluent or at least well indoctrinated in

German biers and wines…or both. Andrea (the owner) will

happily accommodate and reciprocate in perfect English if

need be.

What a cool place to have a Porsche Happy Hour and

we might add immensely popular with Mavericks. About

40 Porschephilles showed up with an array of their Porsche’s

parked in a more than ample parking lot. Parking is much

appreciated when we have to park our beautiful cars, so it

is especially nice to park next to another Porsche – then we

know they will not be dinged – right? We are also sure the

executives at Zuffenhausen would approve of the Bavarian

Grill and what also is amazing; so many Mavericks came

out on tax day…wow! Those returns must have generated

some extra cash! What is also interesting is the number of

Porsche’s in the Metroplex, and the size of the Maverick

membership – about a thousand folks in all. And that

represents just a small segment of local Porsche owners. If

all those non-members knew they were entitled to a PCA

discount at the local Porsche dealers maybe more would

join – spread the word!

Since Happy Hours seem to focus around Mexican

food, mainly because it is very prevalent in the Dallas

area and also because of its moderate pricing, it is a nice

change of pace to partake of German food. The Bavarian

Grill advertises the largest Schnitzels in Texas! Well what

exactly is a Wiener schnitzel anyway you might ask? Really

it is just a thin cut of meat coated in bread crumbs and then

fried. (Hey we never promised healthy-just good). It is

a very popular part of the Viennese and Austrian cuisine.

Traditionally it is served with a side of lingonberry jam or

cranbury sauce. The traditional Wiener is made of veal and

sometimes pork.

One of the highlights of the Grill is the service. We

had a pretty big crowd and the service staff was very

professional…hats off to them, they work hard. So milling

around we discovered some new faces in the crowd…and

please if we missed anyone we are very sorry. Maybe we

need to have a sign-in table for all those new Mavericks.

Joining us at HH for the first time was Brad and Jen Nesbitt,

who recently joined PCA and drive a 1999 Boxster,

welcome to you both and we might add a good choice for

your first Porsche. Also Charlie Capers who just joined as

well, Charlie drives a 2008 Cayman S. Again, our apologies

if we missed including anyone.

We are sure everyone enjoyed listening to Rich Keesecker

and his expert renditions of Bavarian folk music, we were

well entertained. Rich is a member of the Bavarian Music,

Culture, and Folk Dance Preservation Society of Dallas.

And then there was a surprise with Ed Mullinex keeping the

beat on the spoons, and singing along in key. Who knew?

We have lots of talent in our group! Happy Birthday was

played on cow bells by the staff – Happy Birthday again to

Mike Lockas! We won’t ask how old Mike…

The next Happy Hour will be back to the Wild Wood

Grill in Southlake. Located at 2700 E. Southlake Blvd.

See you all there!

April Showers bring what? Dirty cars to MSR!!

By Carrie Carrera

Our second Driver Education event of the 2010

season had a very wet start. Most of the

Dallas metro-plex was under very heavy rain

showers from the wee hours of the morning that

continued during our collective pilgrimage to

Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, TX on Saturday

morning, April 24th. So for those of us who

had street tires, that is rain tolerant tires, on our

track cars were able to make the trip in our –

what were – clean cars. Those on trailers also

probably started out clean. However, by the

time we arrived, most of us were covered with

rain spray. Oh darn. And of course, as we are

heading to the club house, the rain stops!!

After our driver’s meetings were completed,

the track had started to dry in the rising sun

and clearing clouds. The instructors had their

first session, and thank you – they pretty much

dried out the track. The rain stayed away the

rest of the weekend, and heck, the cars didn’t

look so dirty coming out of big bend headed for

rattlesnake turn.

Thank you to Park

Place Porsche for

their generous

sponsorship and

attendance at

the event. All

on the 1.3 track, and a special ‘spirited’ parade lap for

the guests of Park Place on the 1.7 track. Dollars were

raised to support the new children’s play area.

Tech Corner

by Ed Mullenix

The Tops and Dogs tech session

was a huge success. We had

25 cars show up, 22 of which

had convertible tops. This was an interactive

tech session. I started things off by

demonstrating how to apply painters tape

to the edges of the plastic rear window and

then apply a paper barrier. Plastic sheeting

was draped on the front, rear, and windows. After proper

masking, the top preservative spray was applied according to

Porsche recommendations.

After watching how to do it, everyone pitched in and we

tag-teamed the masking, draping, and spraying. The first car

required about 25 minutes or so to complete. By the time we

got to the last round of cars (we were treating four at a time), we

had it down to less than ten minutes per car. The top treatment

is one of those tasks that you know needs to be done, but like

cleaning the garage, you try to put off as long as possible.

We all had a great time doing something that otherwise

would not have been all that entertaining. There was much

conversing, admiring each other’s cars, and camaraderie. There

sure if they were praising our efforts or criticizing our obsession

with our cars.

While we were busy treating tops, my bride Donna

was busy tending the grill. She is from Wisconsin, where

apparently they don’t care for, own, or tolerate gas grills. I

dragged our Weber and necessary supplies down to the shop.

We had food that started with “B” (brats, burgers, beans, and

beer) and surprisingly there were no leftovers! The timing of

the top treatment is arbitrary.

It probably should be done prior to the summer, when the

UV index is greatest the top spray not only protects against

rain, it also acts like “sunscreen.” Not sure how many of you

are art aficionados, but next year, we might try to have the tech

session on the same weekend as the Cottonwood Art Festival.

We could spray our tops in the morning, and check out the

offerings at Cottonwood in the afternoon. Just a thought, let

me know what you think. Several members were excited about

the inter-active tech session. They wanted to know if the club

was planning any more tech sessions like this one. I invite your

ideas on what we could do on a future DIY tech session.

We all had a wonderful time. It’s not our fantastic cars, it’s

the people that make our club so enjoyable!
