Drifting

By John Hamilton, President

FIFTY YEARS

YOUNG.

That’s what

your Maverick

Region is, with our

official anniversary

on December 24,

2012. As our fiftieth year celebrations

get underway (Saturday, April

28th: a car from each year at Texas

Motor Speedway), we are now

getting items shipped to us from

the national Porsche Club. Our

first gift pack included our special

commemorative window decals with

the PCA logo and the “50th Anniversary

- Maverick - est. 12/24/62”

around the outside. These are

FREE to you, so see me or Christy

Payne and get one on your car to

show your pride! The second package

was a 50th Anniversary banner,

similar to the window decals.

The third package just arrived

this week. It included two plaques

commemorating our anniversary

AND a binder with copies of our

original charter! (I guess I’m not

the only one who never throws

anything away.) It was most

interesting to read the charter

and the purposes of the club.

Here’s purpose #1: “To promote

the highest standard of courtesy

and safety on the road.” Very

interesting! Methinks we need to

“reinvigorate” that purpose... not

through a training course, but just

through awareness. I’m sure it happens

to all of us from time to time:

someone else is discourteous on the

road and it upsets our day. How do

we react? Does our human nature

make us “tighten-up” the space between

our car and the one in front

of us so that no one else can “cutin”?

Or do we contain our emotions

and realize that the “discourteous

person” is in the minority and we

should set a better example? Hard

2

to do sometimes,

but if we’re going

“to promote the

highest standard of

courtesy and safety

on the road,” we

probably need to

go with choice “b.”

One of the leaders

at a previous

employer sent out

a poster to every

branch. It read:

Courtesy is contageous...Catch

it!

Good advice.

Mav of the Month

Like many organizations these

days, we’ve been challenged by

financial constraints that are

more evident than in years past.

So after going through all the

emotional reactions, we started to

figure that we needed more facts!

One of our region’s

long-time leaders

took the bull by the

horns and gathered

the financial information

from sources

present and past and

put it all together for

us so we could see

where our challenges

were and make educated

decisions on

how and where to cut

expenses or adjust

programs. Over the

past two months

James Shoffit has dug

into all the financials

for the past five

years and developed

trend data that has

given us the ability to

make the adjustments to keep us

financially viable. This took a lot of

time, persistance and hard work.

So James: we’re ecstatic to award

you as our newest Maverick of the

Month with a gift card to the Silver

Fox restaurant in Grapevine. Thank

you, James. You always have, and

you continue to make a huge

impact on our Maverick region!

Carey On...

By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor

Now that I

am getting

settled

in as Slipstream

editor, my next

task is to update

our contact

information. In

particular I would like to draw

your attention to the page on your

left, the listing of Board Officers

and Chairs. If you spot anything

that you know is incorrect, outof-date,

or missing, please email

me at editor@mavpca.org.

You may also notice that there

are a couple of empty photo

frames. One of them is because Pat

Heptig, our Club Race Co-Chair,

is so new that I have not had a

chance to get his photo yet.

But another empty photo frame

also has no actual name associated

with it - all it says is “Your

Name.” This is our “subtle”

invitation to you to consider

taking part in the operation or

management of the Region.

You don’t have to be a long-time

or well-known member, and you

don’t necessarily need to have

experience in a particular area.

For instance, our Secretary,

Madhu Rao, first joined the club in

2009, participated in a few events

(Round-Up and Sunday Drives

to name a couple), and the next

thing he knew, he was being asked

to run for Club Secretary, and the

rest is history. If you were to ask

Madhu about his experience so

far, I think he would tell you that

he has been exposed to the inner

workings and little-known details

about how our events are put on,

even before he has entered them.

As shown on page 31 of this issue,

Maverick Region has over 2000

primary and affiliate members, and

any of them are eligible to volunteer

for an office or position. If you

have attended any of our events, be

they social or competitive, we hope

that you enjoyed them. But we also

wonder if you have thought of ways

to make them more interesting

or more fun or more competitive

or perhaps less expensive.

If so, getting your idea heard

is as easy as contacting the appropriate

person listed on page

4. And if you would like to take

the next step and have your

name and photo listed there, we

could make that happen too!

Read on!

Maverick Minutes

By Brendan Eagan, Guest Scribe March 7, 2012

Editor’s Note:

Region Secretary

Madhu Rao was

unable to make it

to the March board

meeting. He appreciates

the support of

Brendan Eagan,

who served as scribe for the evening.

President John Hamilton

kicked off the meeting

promptly at 1900. The large

attendance was noted. This was

probably the largest group I’ve

seen in the two years I’ve been

attending. Several guests were

introduced including M.L. Speer

and repeat visitor Rob Adams.

Mike Brodigan will be stepping

down as Drivers’ Ed chair after the

June 1-day event. He commented

that younger faces were needed in

the club and in these roles. Mike’s

passion and leadership will be

missed. The Region’s new Publicity

Chair, with links to Panorama (Na-

tional), was announced as Linda

Bambina, with a round of applause.

John showed a notebook delivered

from National with original documents

and letters from 1962 that

were used to establish the Maverick

Region – 50 YEARS ago. Highlighted

to the group was one of

the founding tenets: To promote the

highest standard of courtesy and safety

on the road. “We’ll see more about

this in the future,” quipped John.

The Porsche Parade (Salt Lake

City, July 8-14, 2012) has extended

the awards nomination deadline.

Few award nominations have been

received, but our Region looks to

be in a good position to win a few!

Noted by Wendy Shoffit, later in

the meeting, was that participant

Web registration for the National

Parade would be delayed due to

technical issues – server crashes.

8

Money and finances were next

with John detailing that our club

continues to be cash challenged.

Part of the issue is regarding cash

flow. Funds are required, up front,

to reserve the tracks and other

venues for events later in the year.

The fees from participants aren’t

collected until much later in the

year and this contributes to the

squeeze. The club has eaten away

our cash cushion and all club sections

will have to be more frugal.

One highlighted area was to for the

board to look for ways to increase

revenues. Kudos in absentia for

Keith Olcha who’s secured more

funding from the local dealers.

If you’ve not noticed the club

raffle – take note. Maverick Region

is raffling a trip to Germany. Tick-

ets are $50 and your chances of

winning are stunningly good – at

least compared to the Texas lottery!

Only 300 tickets will be sold. The

primary contact is Christy Payne,

but you’ll see information on the

website also. Any sales beyond 100

tickets (and we’re nearly there)

will help with revenue for the club

and donations to our charity – the

Huffaker-Hughes Hope House.

Concours Chair Jack Griffin

spoke next and committed to an

article in an upcoming spring

Slipstream edition. Two events

were highlighted: Cinco de Mayo

at Mayo’s (Euless) and Autos in

the Park in June (Dallas). Jack

is also planning a PCA Tech Session

on how to detail a Porsche.

Mike Brodigan said the March

DE looks good from a financial

standpoint. The April DE needs

more attendees as the event is

more expensive with MotorSport

Ranch’s 3.1-mile track being rented

(Cresson). Mike has three initiatives

for DEs this year: promotion

to increase participation; improved

quality; cutting costs. Pat Heptig

is working the promotion angle

and is giving the BMW club a

chance to bring their drivers to

PCA DEs. It’s a two-way street and

we’re looking at how to participate

with their DEs. Consideration is

being given for a 2013 event – a

“Germany” DE, using both clubs

and publications to attract drivers.

Jim Buckley and Bill Miller were

next on the docket and had a

presentation with PPT and videos.

The topic was DE changes: promo-

tion of the events and quality. One

promotion idea was to have videos

of the event to help new DE par-

ticipants know what to expect. This

includes a video of the morning

arrival, signing in at the gate, pad-

dock parking, and walking to the

meeting rooms. It would be specific

to each of our locations and help

lessen in the anxiety of first-time

participants. The quality angle is

aimed at upgrading and standard-

izing the instructor’s role - it will

transition to more of a driving

coach. Instructors will be training

on everything from how to first in-

teract with new students and all the

way through in-car instruction. The

demo videos Bill and Jim presented

were top-notch and professionally

edited. Their work and efforts were

well receieved and were seen as a

positive step for moving our DEs

up a notch. Next discussions, after

the March DE, will be funding for

equipment, professional editing,

and post-production. Lastly, Jim

has been in discussions with the

Lone Star Region (Houston) and

how they run DE. Lone Star’s DE

is healthy and profitable. They

are eager to work with us thanks

to Jim’s discussions with them.

Vice President Tom Minnella

reported that he’s sorting his way


through the insurance

forms and requirements

for the various events.

Jim Buckley is also

working the Club Race

for this year. There are

many open positions for

volunteers. Interested?

Please contact Jim! The

race will be at MotorSport

Ranch on Oct 27-28, 2012.

Tech Session Chair Ed

Mullenix gave a thumbs-up

for the RAC Performance

Tech Session in February.

Ed is brainstorming

for another Tech Session

and May 19 looks good.

The “Tops Treatment”

for Boxsters & Cabriolets,

preparing them for the

merciless summer sun, was

a success two years back

and is a candidate for a

repeat performance.

Al Silva had great news of finding

a 2012 sponsor for Autocross and

Time Trial series. This will help Al

as he works to secure a venue closer

to the DFW area. While there are

a lot of positives for using Mineral

Wells, the distance does keep participants

away. Al is very passionate

about increasing participation and

an in-city location will be huge.

Brendan Eagan reviewed the

upcoming March 18 Sunday

Drive from the Meacham / Lake

Worth area out to NW of Fort

Worth, arriving at the Vintage

Flight Museum, and ending up

at Joe T Garcia’s in Cowtown.

Sunday Drive Chair John Harvey

reviewed two future drives. The

Bluebonnet Drive will be a repeat

of last year’s route and will be

on April 29. The May Drive will

work to dovetail into an Autocross

introduction. Noted was that our

Rally Meister has retired. The

club needs a new one. Please

contact John or Carey Spreen!

Happy Hour Chair Mike Farrar,

with an ear-to-ear grin, reported

a great turnout at the Ruggeri’s

Happy Hour. Mac’s in Colleyville

is next and we’re hoping for an

equally enthusiastic turnout.

Mike is aiming for Fort Worth to

have one of the summer Happy

Hours and Joe T Garcia’s is a

strong “maybe” at this point.

Mike is also coordinating a car

show benefiting the charity My

Possibilities to be held at Boardwalk

Porsche in Plano on April 15.

Linda Bambina reports that she’s

gotten commitments for cars to

be in the 50th Anniversary photo

shoot from every year in our Region’s

50 years of existence, except

1980 and 1981. Have one? Please

contact Linda! The photo shoot

is on April 28 at the “50 Years of

Porsche” Car Show. See the calendar

on our website for more details.

Wendy Shoffit let us know that a

new design for the Maverick website

is coming courtesy of Denny Payne.

Social Chair Christy Payne noted

that the break even point for

the Germany trip was 100

tickets, and we are close to that

point now. She also announced

that the club will need a new

Social Chair. Christy has served

admirably in that position for

three years and has created a

very organized program. Please

contact John Hamilton at president@mavpca.org

if interested.

Lisa Steele let us know that

budget cuts are affecting DE

– coffee and donuts will disappear.

Membership is strong at

2082 with 66 renewals. Of the

26 non-renewals, several have

been contacted and are “re-upping,”

having just overlooked

the renewal notice. Great news

for our membership strength.

The club board is also reaching

out to new members with a

welcoming phone call, answering

questions, and helping

get them involved with our

activities – a great personal touch.

James Shoffit told us the club

has had no CDs in the bank as

“cushion” since 2004. Club money

losses started in 2008 with DE

being a noted loss leader. This is

a large reason for the reemphasis

on quality, promotion and

changes in the DE program.

AX/TT School Coordinator

Robyn Howard added to Al

Silva’s information, noting that

the Autocross and Time Trial

sponsor is Mayo Performance.

Pat Friend was commended

for sending a note that all receivables

were in. Applause!

Treasurer Jim Falgout said checks

were out to the Huffaker-Hughes

Hope House. He read a letter

expressing heartfelt gratitude from

them. He also noted that checks

were out to cover rental of the

tracks for this year’s DE events.

Adjourned at 2040.

Charlie Davis.

What a

Maverick.

He has been an

active Maverick

member for a

bit more than 42

of the region’s

50 years. He epitomizes the idea

of a Maverick (individualist; rebel;

nonconformist) more than most,

and he certainly epitomizes the

concept of “active” more than

most. As an engineer/”frustrated

physicist,” risk-taker, major geek,

inventor, photographer, out-of-thebox

thinker, envelope pusher, he

has been infusing these personality

traits, plus his talents, interests and

enthusiasm into our club for over

four decades. And all the while

he encouraged others to try new

ideas of their own for more unique

activities than you would believe,

all in an effort to keep interest

high and needs met as our club

has continued to go, go and grow!

Charlie Davis in Photographer Mode

One of our newest members,

Valerie Fitzau, had only visited with

him a little bit at the All Member

Party but had this incredibly

astute observation: “In Porsche

model years, Charlie is a classic.”

Speaking of Porsche model years,

I hope you are planning on joining

us for Maverick’s HISTORICAL

50 Years of Porsche Car Show and

Photo Shoot at Texas Motor Speedway

on April 28. Focusing on the

“people” part of our motto, I have

contacted/invited former Maverick

club Presidents, Slipstream editors,

Selcer Award winners, Zone

leaders, elected officers, and other

exceptional club contributors of

all kinds over Maverick’s many,

many years to bring their cars

for this almost all-day shoot. The

response has been astonishing.

Our oldies-but-goodies are coming

from all over the Metroplex to

be part of this car-people-reunion.

Richard Diller and his family will

be driving up from Killeen, Jan

Mayo-Michel will be coming in

from Colorado, and Tannia Dobbins

will make it in from Florence,

near Georgetown! Joel Nannis will

make his regular trek from the east

(Rockwall), and Charlie will hike in

from the west (Weatherford). While

Charlie’s infamous Voodoo will

not accompany him, Charlie-the-

Photographer will bring his latest

digital wonder: a new GigaPan Epic

100, something that will make this

panorama of fifty Porsches picture

worthy of “Panorama” publication,

or at least an extraordinary poster

for your garage wall or ceiling!

Christy Payne has created another

amazing ad for this upcoming

once-in-a-lifetime event. Please

read all the details on page 14.

Concours d’Elegance 2012

By Jack Griffin, Concours Chair

This time of

the year

we think of

getting our cars in

shape for the many

opportunities for

sharing (what we

call showing off!)

the results of countless hours of

polishing, shining, waxing, and

making our cars look as nice as we

possibly can. We will have our own

Concours events as well as other

very nice local, regional, and national

level Concours events posted

on our calendar from time to time.

In addition to our annual Concours

at Mayo Performance (this

year dubbed “Cinco de Mayo at

Mayos” in honor of the date that it

falls on), and “Autos in the Park”

at the Cooper Aerobic Center, we

will post on our calendar many

of the nice shows in the area

that will allow us to show our

cars along with other marques.

Most of the shows use the

“People’s Choice” method of

judging and awarding of trophies.

However, we will also do a few

events using critical judging.

People’s Choice judging is when

the participants merely vote on

their favorite car in a particular

class. This method is a very low-key

type of event and gets everyone

involved in the selection of winners.

The critical judging method is a

little more serious in that we will

have a team of experts who will very

carefully examine each car for its

cleanliness and degree of “perfection”

in various areas of scrutiny.

The Porsche Parade Concours

d’Elegance is a very serious critical

judging event where judges examine

every square inch of a car for

perfection and authenticity. Our

events will only focus on paint,

wheels, engine bay, interior, and

trunk areas. No reaching under the

car in search of a speck of dust!

We all find, regardless of whether

a car wins a first place trophy or

not, that the benefits of getting our

cars in the absolute top possible

condition is reward in itself that is

immeasurable. Your Porsche will

thank you for the extra attention

it is receiving and will reward you

with many compliments about how

nice it looks. Plus, you’ll meet many

other nice Mavs and learn the best

ways to care for your Porsche and

make it look as great as it runs.

From time to time we will be putting

on seminars which will feature

detailing experts who will show the

best ways to make our cars shine

and look great. Ever notice how

much better your car runs when

it is freshly washed and detailed?

Finally, we will also

post on the calendar

the many car gatherings

in the area,

which are not judged

contests but social

occasions to “share”

your beautiful car

with others. Cars &

Coffee, which occurs

the first Saturday of

each month, regularly

attracts over a thousand

cars of various

brands and vintages.

So start preparing

your Porsche to enjoy

a year of great events

that will highlight the

cosmetic aspects of

our favorite Porsche

models.

Editor’s Note: The first Maverick

Region Drivers’ Education event of

2012 took place on March 10 and 11 at

Eagles Canyon Raceway. Due to

publication deadlines, there was not

enough time to include an article, but

we wanted to show you some photos of

that wet weekend. Yes, these events go on

rain or shine, and you can be sure that

you learn a lot about the importance of

being smooth when you’re driving on a

wet track! If you haven’t attended a DE,

you owe it to yourself and to your

Porsche to try it out. Many thanks to

Autobahn Porsche, who sponsored this

event!

“Got My Mojo Workin’ ”

By John Harvey, Bad-to-the-Bone-Tourmeister

Anybody that

remembers

this song,

popularized by

Muddy Waters,

knows that it is

good to have a

Mojo. My earliest

memory of

the whole Mojo concept has to

be the “Lucky Rabbit’s Foot”

that every kid my age needed in

the late 50’s. I found out later

that it only worked if you had a

’55 Chevy with a lift kit, Cragar

S/S mags and a Hurst shifter.

Since that time I’ve always had

a Mojo of some sort for all the

activities that Beej and I do. How

do you think we’ve lived this

long? For the last several years,

I’ve adopted the “Lucky Bone-

Head Socks” as my official Mojo

and have put them to use quite

effectively. How I acquired this

particular pair is a different story.

Did you know that if you are

wearing these socks that you can

do a wheelie, on your mountain

bike, off of a three foot rock ledge

onto a boulder strewn trail and

only break three ribs? I was lucky

I didn’t puncture a lung and was

able to ride back to the car so that I

could drive myself to the hospital.

Most recently, I unleashed the

power of the Lucky Bone-Head

Socks at the February “Love Your

Porsche” Tech Session. I admit that

it was a little unfair to those of you

that didn’t bring your Mojo in time

for the raffle drawing, but hey, I’ll

bet you will remember next time.

After warning everyone that I

was wearing my lucky socks and

that I would probably win the

raffle, there were still those who

stood there in disbelief as Christy

drew my name out of the hat. It

gives a whole new meaning to

the term “Shock and Awe.”

My reward was a 3M Clear

Bra installation, provided by

Stratashield Custom. Houston

Orona Jr. and his crew worked

their magic in getting that flat

sheet of clear plastic to conform

to the curvatures of my Boxster’s

front end. This is a real art and

nothing short of miraculous.

Hans Hoffman and the bunch

from RAC Performance provided

a nice dry place to meet as well as

some delicious pastries to munch

on while we watched the install.

By the way, that wonderful sound

from the FVD/Brombacher exhaust

on my Boxster was courtesy

of Hans and my checkbook.

Thanks to Scott Boyd and Office

Perks for providing the hot java

that we all enjoyed while mingling

and looking at all of the cool cars in

the shop. As usual, our Maverick

team of Christy Payne, Lisa Steele,

Linda Bambina, and Ed Mullenix

put together another great event

with over 65 attendees. It was a

great day especially for the Harvey

family who will enjoy many miles of

paint-chip-free driving while planning

our future Sunday Drives.

Cliff’s Ramblings

By Cliff BlackshearOn January

31st at

around

7:50 in the

morning I had

one of those

dreaded brain

dead moments.

Something I have not suffered

through for quite some time.

Come on, ya know what I mean.

Did something so stupid it seems

like you are in a dream after you

realize what you have done.

It was less than 24 hours before

I was gonna be boarding a plane

heading for Sebring. I was already

very emotionally wound up about

going. Had loaded Thomas Jones

up with track gear which he had

transferred to a transporter with

his car and now needed to be

sure I had all else in place.

So I stopped to fill the commuter

rat with Diesel and have it ready

to be parked at the airport for a

few days. It had about ¼ tank of

fuel. Filled it up, bleary eyed and

barely out of bed at 7:50 in the

morning. Hung up the filler nozzle

and realized I had just pumped a

little over 8 gallons of 93 octane

gas into my Diesel. I went from

barely mentally awake to 5th stage

afterburner in about 1 microsecond.

Stood there staring at “Satan’s

Fuel Delivery Vessel” for about 20

seconds while it produced a receipt.

Got back in the car and just sat

there. My technician brain was

starting to go to work on the problem.

Immediate tow? To where?

The shop was 60 miles away. Would

not get there til probably 11:00

am if lucky. Tow home 0.9 miles

away? Then what? I needed to be at

work ASAP. There were cars there

and techs there that I needed to

get with, do my job...hummmm.

I realize there is enough Diesel

20

in fuel filter and lines to drive

home on if I am careful. Hit the

drive, shut it down and get the fuel

out of tank before it gets to pick

up, lines, filter, injection pump,

injectors, combustion chambers.

Found myself pulling out the

cell and calling a Porsche engineer

I know in Atlanta. He is in

charge of all investigations of

engine transmission issues with

Porsches in the USA, plus fuel

samples and oil samples all go to

his attention. He answers and I

start out the conversation with:

“Left field question for 2012!”

Now we have known each other

for near a decade. So he is used to

my abstract phone calls. I explain

the situation including the fact that

an immediate “combat terrain,

meatball surgery resolution” is

my only option. I have no time to

take care of this in a precise and

exacting way. The resolution has

to be “down and dirty” and it has

to work. There is a pause on his

end. Then he says “OK, the Diesel

is lying at the bottom of the tank

as it is so much more dense. Drive

home gingerly to avoid transit

intermix as much as possible. You

have about a three to one ratio

of gasoline to Diesel which won’t

work with that compression ratio.”

His words are calming and I know

what to do as he continues: “Put

a hose down the filler neck and

only penetrate the gas. Figure it

out. How far down to the Diesel.

Then start siphoning it off. Get

the ratio as close to 8 to 1 with

Diesel as you can figure it.”

So home I drive. Carefully shutting

the engine off and coasting several

times. Hit the drive, run in and

grab my son’s car. Go to work. Get

things wrapped up and leave a couple

hours early. I am in no mood to

arrange an alternate ride to the airport.

I want my car drivable. That

is just me. I made the mistake and I

wanted a seriously rapid resolution.

It was a mission to make happen.

My son had classes the next day and

the rest of the week so his ride was

out of the question. My daughters

were both unavailable for a ride to

and from the airport so here we go.

During the work day my engineer

friend calls me back. He

had discussed my situation with

another engineer at Porsche that

I nicknamed “The Mad Scientist”

many years ago. This guy is so out

there in his thought processes

that sometimes it is hard to have

a conversation with him. He is

amazing. Anyway I’m told he

wanted me to be sure and understand

just how gasoline reacts

compared to Diesel under heat

compression ignition process. If I

get the ratio wrong my engine is

gonna be toast. “ROGER THAT!”

Get home and have my friend

Gary at the ready to help and

observe. Gary is also traveling to

Sebring with me and is there to

help. We establish what we believe

is the depth of the fuel on top

of what is mostly Diesel near the

bottom of the tank and start the

siphoning process. Had a pump

to use to start the gas siphoning

from the tank and it immediately

failed to work. So I had to use the

old fashioned method. Mouthful of

fuel a couple times got the draining

process stated. AAAArrrggghhh.

Next back to “Satans Fuel Delievery

Vessel.” This time I used

the Diesel filler nozzle. We immediately

got out on the street

and started weaving lane to lane

at maximum grip levels mixing

the fresh Diesel with the questionable

leftovers in the tank. Then

drove down 377 all the way to

MSR and busted a U-turn. Headed


ack to the barn with no issues

other than the engine felt down

on power and throttle response.

Came back from Sebring and

drove home. Started back to work

routine and noticed the engine was

cranking extra long when restarted

hot. Ran out the fuel load all the

way to low fuel warning light. Refilled

and started commute home.

About five miles into the drive she

came alive. I have a special map on

my fuel microprocessor that was installed

by our guy that writes all our

programs for special cars. It kicked

back in with all its intended glory.

At the end of today several of

the techs in our shop and I were

sitting in my office just discussing

all things automotive and one of

the guys asked how my fuel debacle

was going. We ended up laughing

at my idiotic mistake and then

the fact that being able to confer

with engineers from one of the

foremost automotive engineering

companies on the planet looking

for a resolution was just so odd and

unusual. It was a golden moment.

You called who??? Damn that’s

funny...

February Happy Hour at Ruggeri’s

Text and Photos By Mike Farrar

February’s

Happy Hour

was at Ruggeri’s

Italian Kitchen in

Dallas (not Plano,

as thought by some

members with

very confused GPS

units). We had a great turnout

with 50 people, and almost everyone

stayed for dinner. Unlike

last month, we had no highway

closures due to trucks running into

(unmarked?) bridges so everyone

arrived before dinner ended!

Judging by the comments I received,

dinner was a hit. The stuffed

shrimp received several compliments,

as well as the sole. Tom even

complimented the house Cabernet.

Randy Csanadi describes something big to John

Hamilton and Mark Hanna

Jerry and Myra Sutton, Barbara Kauffman, and Lady and Bob Waddell

browse a photo album while waiting for the food to arrive

I could tell by the sound level that

everyone was enjoying conversation.

The Maverick Club finally

turned out the lights at 10:30. I

will work on reserving parking

spots for the December

Happy Hour

which will return

to Ruggeri’s Italian

Kitchen. Remember,

Dallas, not Plano!

Some members

from Fort Worth

have suggested that

we venture further

west than Grapevine,

so the Happy Hour

hosts are evaluating

an event at Joe T.

Garcia’s in the Fort

Worth Stockyards area. Hopefully

with spring approaching, we can

find a spot by the pool to sip on

margaritas while pondering the

menu choices: “Will I go with

#1 or #2?” My memory predates

getting a choice; back then it was

#1 or nothing. Sometimes they

even let you choose your drink,

but if you did not have cash you

had better have brought something

of value. We will give you

more details as soon as possible.

If you would like to recommend a

location please email me at

hh@mavpca.org. We are always on

the lookout for new Happy Hour

locations!

Advertiser of the Month: Laurie Wirth, Realtor

By Laurie Wirth

From the time I could drive, I

dreamed of some day owning

a Porsche. That dream

became a reality about a year ago

when I became the ecstatic owner

of a silver Porsche Cayenne S. I’d

only had that dream car about 3

months when I was T-boned by a

Hummer H2 traveling at 45 mph.

Although my Cayenne had to

be totaled out, my daughter and

I walked away without a scratch.

That was more than the driver of

the Hummer could say - the H2

didn’t fare too well. I was sold. I

decided that, if for no other reason

than safety (who am I kidding -

safety was only an excuse), I would

own nothing else but a Porsche.

After searching for just the right

replacement, I decided on a black

Cayenne GTS. I love that vehicle!

My rationale? Not only do I

get to work faster, but also my

clients look good in the car!

I’m a residential realtor with

Keller Williams Realty. As a Frisco

homeowner for the past nine years,

and with my office in Plano, I know

the area. North Texas is a great

place to buy and sell real estate! I

work with buyers, sellers and lease

clients who are looking for homes

from the low $100k range to the

millions. Porsche-love isn’t much

different than falling in love with

just the right home. For me there’s

nothing more satisfying than helping

home owners buy just the right

home, or sell their current home.

Does your Porsche need a new

home? Let me help you find it one!

Member Spotlight: Bill Conn

By Lisa Steele, Membership Chair

Our New

Member

Spotlight

this month is on

Bill Conn, who

recently purchased

his first Porsche. He

decided to go BIG, too, because

he bought a black 2010 Cayman.

This beauty only had 8,000 miles

on the odometer but I have a

feeling that Mr. Conn will add

some more track miles very soon.

Bill has been married to his lovely

wife, Lorie, for almost 25 years.

Their son is working on a PhD

in Chemical Engineering at Rice

University in Houston. The Conn

family has been in the DFW area

since 1989 when they moved from

the Ann Arbor area of Michigan.

Lorie was involved in SCCA in

Michigan when this couple met.

Being in the Detroit area in the late

80s, Bill and Lorie had the opportunity

to see Formula 1 and CART

races up close. Besides being a

driving enthusiast, Bill also has two

Weimaraner dogs and loves gadgets,

especially Android phones.

Bill has already completed his

first DE in his new car at Texas

World Speedway. “Years ago I did

a number of driver education

events with my M3. Now I get a

chance to do some in a Porsche.”

Because the weather at TWS was

cold and wet, all cars were required

to have a tow hook installed so they

could be towed out of the mud.

Fortunately, Bill never strayed from

the pavement and was checked out

Bill in front of his car in the paddock

on a chilly Sunday morning at TWS

to drive Blue Solo by his last session

of the weekend. WAY TO GO!!

Please give a big Maverick WEL-

COME to Bill and Lorie Conn.
