Carey On... By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor Our Fall season is now in full swing, with several events scheduled for October -- how many can you attend? Saturday, Oct 5 is our Cars & Cattle Poker Rally and Concours d’Non-Elegance (see ad below for details). Wondering what the heck that is? A Poker Run is a type of rally in which participants stop at various locations along the route and pick up a playing card. At the end of the route, whoever has the best poker hand wins. As for the Concours d’Non-Elegance -- well, it’s a car show at a working cattle ranch. ‘Nuf said? Sunday the 6th is our annual Time Trial held at MotorSport Ranch. If you haven’t registered by the time you read this, it’s probably too late! The next weekend consists of our annual Swap Meet on Saturday the 12th, again hosted by Zim’s Autotechnik in Bedford. Got a part you no longer need, or are you looking for a used part for the right price? The Swap Meet is great for both. Sunday the 13th is a redux of the very popular Sunday Drive to the San Martiño Winery in Rockwall that was held in 2011. John Harvey’s Sunday Drive crew has chosen a route that they know you will enjoy, to be followed by a picnic lunch (which you bring with you); the winery asks that you purchase a bottle of wine, as there are no outside beverages allowed. They also offer wine tastings at $8 for five samples. The weekend of Oct 26-27 is when Maverick Region hosts its PCA Club Race and DE at Eagles Canyon Raceway. If you have never attended a Club Race and are interested in finding out more about it, come on out to Eagles Canyon, north of Decatur, to see what it’s all about. We can always use volunteers as well, so if you feel like contributing your time and seeing what goes on behind the scenes, contact Wendy Shoffit at to see what positions need filling. Finally, our annual Founders’ Day banquet will be held this year on Saturday, Nov 2 -- see the ad on page 17 for details. This year’s event, our 51st, will be a return to normal for us after last year’s big 50th Anniversary blowout, but it will be a fitting look back at the year nonetheless. Read on! 5
