Drifting: The Clown in the Circus

By John Hamilton, Region President

When asked how we successfully

manage so many

different programs in

our region, I like to use the analogy

of the Clown that each of us

may have seen when we went to

the circus. You know, the one who

had that crazy music going and put the sticks in the

ground and then started spinning the pie plates? It

wasn’t too hard for the first few, but as the number

grew, he had to start the new plates and then go

back and re-spin the first plates that he put up.

So it is with our club. We are so blessed that 52 years

ago a few industrious people decided to form the Maverick

Region. Then through the years the members

started adding new programs: the Monthly Newsletter,

Monthly Socials, Concours, Rallies, Drivers’ Education,

Autocross, Time Trials, Sunday Drives, etc. Thus

it is the job of your board members to keep all of those

plates spinning, and add a new plate from time-to-time.

In August, we added the Photography 101 program,

which is much more than just a training class. It is

the beginning to a photography contest (see info

later in this issue) to motivate more of us to take

and submit quality photographs to Slipstream. Yes,

many of us take pictures at our events for personal

enjoyment, but we need to share the good pics with

the rest of the members in our club! Don’t you really

find the articles with a lot of photos to be more

interesting (especially if YOU are in the picture)?

Another Plate . . .

Obviously, we have too much

free time on our hands. BUT

in thinking about what our

readers would enjoy, we’re

going to add a “Tech Corner”

to your Slipstream magazine.

We will be asking YOU,

THE READER, to submit

the questions that you have

about your Porsche, and then

have our panel of experts

provide the answers. Watch

for details in an upcoming

issue of Slipstream (or if you

can’t wait, send your question

to me at president@

mavpca.org, and we’ll get

our experts working on it).

Mav of the Month

This month’s Mav of the Month just celebrated the

45th anniversary of his membership in PCA and our

Maverick Region, so he has been responsible for putting

more than a few plates on the sticks, and for keeping

them spinning. We haven’t been able to wear him

out, so he just keeps on coming back for more. In fact,

Charlie Davis has been the driving force behind our

new photography workshop

program and contest. Charlie

spent weeks putting together

the training program and

is now hard at work on the

contest and data storage

aspects of the program.

So for all his hard work,

dedication and passion:

Charlie, this one’s for you.

Congratulations on being our

Mav of the Month, and enjoy

your gift certificate to the

Silver Fox Restaurant in

Grapevine!

Carey On...

By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor

I

hope you had the chance to attend

one of the many PCA events in late

August and early September. If

you didn’t, we have recaps of several

of them in this issue: Boxstoberfest,

Charlie Davis’ Photo Workshop, and

the Monthly Social at the Whiskey

Cake Kitchen and Bar. Events in the

second half of September, such as the Time Trial / Autocross

weekend at Mineral Wells, the Le Auto Grange

charity event in Tyler, and the Lone Star Le Mans races

at COTA happened too late for this issue, but will be

covered in the November Slipstream.

Leadership changes for Maverick Region are on the

horizon. Two officers, President John Hamilton and

Treasurer Jim Falgout, are stepping down after years of

service to the club. We have new candidates for those

positions, and you will have your chance to vote for them

at our annual end-of-the-year celebration, which we call

Founders’ Day, set this year to take place on Saturday,

Nov 22. Mail-in ballots will be available in the November

Slipstream, but it’s not too late to throw your hat in the

ring if you would like to be a part of the process.

Two other positions that are looking for “new blood”

are the Time Trial Chair and the Autocross Chair. Travis

Howard, who has been involved in both of these

series for the last eight years, along with wife Robyn as

Registrar and Worker Coordinator, has announced that

he needs to turn over the reins of these popular competition

driving series to the next generation. If you have

been a participant of either of these series, and have

enjoyed both the competiton and the friendships that

inevitably develop at these events, perhaps you would

consider stepping up and taking a shot at running one

of them next year. You will have lots of help, and the

satisfaction of making a meaningful contribution to the

club.

I too, as Slipstream Editor, am looking to hand off the

responsibility of putting together our newsletter each

month. There is no hard deadline for this change, as I

want to make it as smooth a transition as possible, but

if you would like to be a part of the team, please let

me know (editor@mavpca.org). I already have one or

two folks who have expressed interest, but the more the

merrier!

I hope you enjoy this issue. Read on!

Gimme a Minute: September Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary September 3, 2014

The meeting

began at

7:02pm with

Region President

John Hamilton

introducing guests

Jim Hirsch, Jouni

Hiltunen, Bryan

Karlan, and Jim Ford. We’re always

happy to have new members join

us! Membership is up again to a total

of 1462 Primary and 2355 Total

members. We remain in the top five

PCA Regions in the country for actual

membership growth this year.

We were proud to send a check for

over $6,000 to the Hope Shelter

this month for monies collected

since Founders’ Day last November.

John also reported that we had a

very successful photography event

that was oversold. The photography

committee wants to hold a photo

contest. He made a motion that

they be allowed to spend up to

$1000 for the contest. They’re

also considering having another

photo class for those who could

not attend the first one. There

was a discussion about copyrighting

issues and release of photo

rights, etc. The motion passed.

We have several open positions

needing to be filled, including

Slipstream editor, Autocross Chair,

and Time Trial Chair. There were

questions about the editorship

and suggestions of how to fill it.

Fortunately, Carey Spreen isn’t in

a huge hurry to vacate, but wants

to move on to other positions in

the club. Travis Howard also wants

to get fresh blood in his AX/TT

Chair positions for new ideas and

improvements. We will create ads

to promote the openings. Several

names and ideas were suggested.

We also need a graphic artist to

create ads. For the time being,

Jasmine Shoffit and Abby Maurice

will work to share the duties.

Slipstream Editor Carey Spreen

received an upgraded trophy for

the Parade newsletter contest.

He’d originally gotten 3rd place,

but because of an error in calculations,

he should have received

2nd place. That error was corrected

and Carey got his rightful

award. Congratulations again!

David Robertson reported that

the nominations committee has

identified several candidates for

President, Jim Falgout and Ed

Mullenix, and one for Treasurer,

Richard Solomon. The current

Secretary and Vice President have

agreed to stay, unless someone

else wants to get on the ballot.

Richard Solomon said that planning

for the September 28 event

in Tyler is coming along. There

are currently about 45 participants

coming from the Metroplex, and

he hopes to have many more.

Public Relations Chair Linda

Bambina is looking for alternative

article ideas. She will be

done with the “Garage Glimpses”

at the end of the year.

Treasurer Jim Falgout reported

that the club is doing well overall

financially, with over $137K in

assets. This is due in large part

to the strength of the Drivers’

Education series. All other events

have been profitable as well.

Rally Chair Don Sebert said that

the recently very popular Islamorada

Rally netted $390 for the club!

He will be working with Neill Flood

and the Sunday Drive committee

to put together a rally/drive

combined event later this year.

Bruce McQuaid will be working

with Gareth Maurice in the spring

on the Teen Driving Event.

Membership Chair Tom Froehlich

asked about a COTA report, as he

wasn’t able to attend the meeting

last month. While the region did

make money on the event, there

was a pretty high risk involved.

That prompted discussion about

whether to support future events

there or not. Discussion was tabled.

Sunday Drive Chair John Harvey

was excited about the upcoming

Boxstoberfest weekend. Nearly 30

Mavericks were going to attend.

The Sunday Drive to Grandpappy

Point is all set and ready to go

for Oct. 12. The November drive

(on Saturday, Nov 15) will end

at the Vetro Glass Blowing shop

in Grapevine, and the December

Drive will be another toy run

event to the Hope Shelter. He’s

thankful for his drive leaders

being willing to step up to larger

responsibilities in the future.

Drivers’ Education Chair Chris

Tabor reported that the DE at

MotorSport Ranch was full in

the lower run groups, and had

larger-than-usual numbers in the

higher run groups. He’s all about

Porsche Passion. Daren Kirbo will

be filling in for him this upcoming

DE weekend several times, as

he has other commitments that

have come up. He has all the

track dates reserved for 2015.

We had a discussion about safety

issues in the higher run groups.

6 October


Time Trial/Autocross Chair Travis Howard is still

looking for replacements to take on the two programs.

There’s an event coming up in Mineral Wells (a TT/

AX weekend). The AX course will be a modified version

of the one from this year’s Parade in Monterey.

Club Race Registrar Wendy Shoffit reported that the

CR committee has begun planning discussions for the

upcoming event in November at MotorSport Ranch.

Several of our guests introduced themselves

throughout the evening. All seemed happy to have

joined the club and are willing to jump in to help

where they can, including providing brainstorming

ideas and feedback for the event chairs. We

were very pleased to have them all at the meeting,

and look forward to their future involvement.

Lastly, John Hamilton announced the Maverick of

the Month, Charlie Davis, most specifically for his

tireless work on the photo seminar. Congratulations!

Meeting was adjourned at 8:40pm.

Garage Glimpses: A Most Interesting Arrangement

By Linda Bambina, Region PR Chair

Photos by Jacques Krielen

I’ve been

invited to

garages that

are big, bigger,

and huge. I’ve

seen garages with

interesting and

well-loved cars,

even some very creative ways of

parking them. But Jacques (Jack)

and Kitty Krielen have a MOST interesting

arrangement in their new

retirement. They have six Porsches

that fit nicely into two garages, in

two very different homes, in two

very different countries! And that’s

a first for this feature article writer.

Kitty and Jack in their 964

Jack and Kitty split the year

between Southlake, TX and

Haarlem, The Netherlands. His

home in Haarlem is less than 10

minutes from the Circuit Park

Zandvoort. Jack has watched the

Dutch Grand Prix there many times

How many garages have

you seen with a bar, piano,

and seating for six?

8 October

Part of the “Dutch Historical

Car Society” collection

and attended a number of their

driving schools. But the best part

is that he and his friends (calling

themselves the “Dutch Historical

Car Society”) re-furnished an old

barn so they could store their

own special “historic” cars, have a

place to display memorabilia, hang

out, and talk cars ad infinitum.

Jack has been talking Porsches

since he “saw the light” at age 15.

One of his brother’s friends had

a 356, and that helped to create

some huge dreams for this now

international businessman. Jack

Outside the Haarlem garage with

their Carrera 2, 356B, and 911SC.

got his business degrees in Texas

(scholarship to Texas Tech!), began

his career with TI, and then went

with Nestle until he retired, traveling

all over the US and Europe.

Jack didn’t buy his first Porsche

until 1978 in New York. Though

he went shopping for a used one,

he ended up buying a brand new

911SC, in Mocha Brown, at night!

He immediately joined PCA and

discovered Lime Rock Park racetrack

in Connecticut. Within two

years he was back in Europe, and

had a great time with the Germany

Region driving the Nurburgring

(“The Green Hell”) about eight

times. He bought, sold, and traded

Porsches all along the way. He has

recently found and restored his first

Porsche (the SC) to new condition.

A view of the garage from the bar.

Then he bought a 1962 356B T6,

and has had THIS one restored

to join the others, namely the

1978 911SC, a 1991 964 Carrera

2, and a 2009 997 Carrera 4S.

But wait! There’s more: two years

ago Jack and Kitty wanted a house

in Southlake near some Texas

friends. This garage is large enough

to creatively park three cars – one

from another Jack (“Mary Lou”) – a

964 Cabriolet plus a new 997 C2S

along with a daily driver for Kitty! A

most interesting arrangement!

No, it’s not a post card,

but it could have been!

Five-Speed Chatter: “To Shift, or Not to Shift . . .” Part 2

By Ash Seidl-Staley

Last month I went over my

shifting problems and the

steps I took to fix them. I

outlined how to replace the front

shifter bushings at the firewall,

the side shift housing bushing,

and the rear ball cap bushing;

but these steps were just half of

the procedures needed to get my car back on the

road. Up next was the infamous firewall bushing.

Now, remember how I thought that getting the pin

out of the front shifter coupling was difficult? It turns

out that replacing the firewall bushing is even more of

a bear. Again, my online research told me to jack the

car up and push the shifting rod (the one in the cab’s

center tunnel) forward so it isn’t poking out the hole.

Then the articles say to “simply pop in” the new bushing,

but an issue with this step immediately surfaced.

The bushing is too big to just pop in the hole! Even after

greasing the bushing, hammering it, and applying

all of my muscular force (being careful not to knock

the car off jacks) I still couldn’t get the darn thing in.

At this point I went to the Internet to see if there

were any “insider” tricks to accomplish the task.

There were in fact several ways other owners were

able to get the bushing in, but the one most commonly

used was to submerge the bushing in a

coffee cup of water and cook it in the microwave

for three minutes. When the water starts boiling,

remove the cup and quickly run to your car, carefully

pull out bushing, and pop it into the hole.

Now I would love to tell you that the trick worked,

but in reality it did not! Time after time I would go in

the house, nuke the bushing, and run outside to the

car, burning myself all along the way; after four times I

gave in. In my mind I believed the trick would work if I

just had a little more room to maneuver under the car,

but I had already wasted too much daylight in my attempts

to keep on trying. Instead, I put everything else

back together and, about two weeks later, I was able

to visit our good friends at Jack Junkies and forcefully

pressed in the bushing while it was high up on the lift.

Installation of the shifter bar was basically just the

reverse of the removals steps. I fed the rear section

of the bar through the newly-replaced side shift

housing bushing and into the rear ball cap coupler.

Making sure everything lined up wasn’t really an

issue, because the cone screw that secures the bar to

the coupler will only tighten all the way if the bar is

properly oriented. For the front shifter coupling I

fed the bar in the cab’s tunnel through the firewall

hole and connected the coupler to the bar with a

new cone screw. With everything back on the car, I

made sure all my connections were tight and greased,

replaced the rear dust cover at the transmission, and

sat down in the cab to start adjusting my shift pattern.

Shift coupling at firewall installed

you will get through it! For me I found that the only

way I could get the pattern I wanted was to adjust then

test, then adjust and then test again. I spent the next

day or so driving the car and pulling over to tweak the

lever to the point that there were no crunches, and

at the same time, I was most comfortable shifting.

Once all adjustments had been made and everything

was finally put back together, I cannot begin to tell you

how much better my shifting has become. I feel like I

traded in the sloppy barrel of marshmallows for a

sturdy, smooth, barrel of concrete with a near perfect

shift pattern. Time to drive!

In order to adjust the shift pattern, all that is needed

is a 13mm socket with socket wrench, a pair of vise

grips (or pliers), and patience. There are two basic

principles to adjustment: the first is the “fore and aft”

adjustment which makes getting from 2nd to 3rd and

4th to 5th easier or harder. The second is the rotation

of the shifter bar, which can make getting from

1st to 2nd and 3rd to 4th easier or harder. Adjusting

the “fore and aft” play is pretty simple -- just loosen

the 13mm bolt that holds the front shifter bar to

the shift lever and move the gear shifter forwards or

backwards. Be careful though -- moving the lever too

far back will cause the shifter bar to unhook from the

base of the lever! Adjusting the rotation is done by

loosening the shift bar to shift lever bolt, then hopping

out of the car and removing the cone screw from the

shifter coupling at the fire wall, rotating the bar 90

degrees or so, and then tightening everything up.

This might seem a little daunting at first but if you

bring the all-important tool of patience to the garage

Commentary from the Left Seat: Pride of Ownership

By Robert L. Turner

Editor’s Note: Rob

Turner is author

of The Driver, a

Marc Lange series

of novels (available

through Amazon),

and member of

Maverick Region.

Porsche ownership – it should

have been a momentous

occasion, but it wasn’t. If

you will remember last month’s

column, I had imported a few gray

market cars and saved enough to

buy one of my own. Now US$2000

does not buy much of a car, but

I did find a Porsche. It was a red

1972 Porsche 914 that I saw in a

vast warehouse in the dying light

of the day. Fast-forward a couple

of months and the car had been

delivered to the US. Now it was

time to live my gray market dream.

I walked into the warehouse in

Houston to pick up my 914 and

expected to see something low

and red, in perfect condition, just

waiting for me to twist the key and

drive it home. It was low, it was red,

but where did all the rust come

from? That telltale sign of bubbly

paint (pushed up from what

should be smooth metal) was on

each lower quarter panel, along

the lower edges of both doors, and

along most of the other panels

for that matter. And that was the

rust I could see (even the slots

for the jack were rusted over). I

would later discover that it was

underneath the car as well; the

dreaded tin worm had spread to

just about everywhere else. Where

was the beautiful car I looked at in

Karlsruhe, Germany, you know, the

one I saw in the last fading rays of

sunlight; that shaft of light angling

through the high windows, making

the dust in the warehouse sparkle?

Yeah, there was a shaft alright,

but I was the one that got shafted,

not the last rays of sunlight . . .

The place where I picked it up

did me a favor and gave me a

paper license plate, good for 30

days. There was a large envelope

filled with the paperwork, all the

importation docs, the EPA and

DOT release (being a 1972, it was

exempt) and the German TUV

title – an old faded green piece of

paper that had a lot of scribbling

in German on it. I took the keys

and opened the door; at least the

interior was in very good shape.

Twisting the key, the engine

caught on the third try and

fired up. Shifting into first, the

transmission gave that angry

grinding cough of gears not

synching correctly, so I let out

the clutch and pressed it back in

slowly; now the gears meshed.

I started back towards Austin,

hoping to beat Houston traffic.

It had been cloudy, looking like

rain as I drove northwest towards

Austin. But as I got out of town, the

clouds parted and the sun came

out. Pulling over to the side of the

road, I wanted to take the roof

panel off and bask in the glory of

a sunny day. Loosening the top, I

went to the rear trunk to open it,

but a sudden gust of wind caught

me off guard, ripping the trunk out

of my hands, it bent forwards towards

the front of the car, breaking

both hinges completely off. I stared

at the trunk lying on top of the

roof and could not believe my lousy

luck. It could not get worse. It did.

A short time later, I got pulled

over by the State Police – I had

been doing 70 mph in a 65 mph

zone. He reached for his book to

write the ticket, but took pity on

me when I told him my sorrowfilled

story, and when I pointed to

the speedo registering Kilometers

per hour, not Miles per hour, he

let me off with a stern warning.

Finally made it back to Austin

without further incident, thank

goodness. I hated calling Germany

during the day; it cost a lot

of money, so I waited until the

middle of the night (morning in

Germany) and called the guy I had

purchased the car from. I called

and called and the phone just

rang and rang, nobody answered.

Really, I do not know what I

expected; maybe for him to take it

back, I don’t know. But I tried over

the next week or so and nobody

picked up. Finally I called the shipping

company that had handled the

transatlantic shipment, and they

answered the phone alright. I was

routed through to a senior manager

who wanted to know if I knew

where this individual who sold me

the car was. I did not; I was calling

to complain about the vehicle I

received, I had been ripped off.

He said I was not alone, there had

been many people that had called

to complain, but at least I had a

car and a title, most of the other

people that called had neither.

I had to talk to the German police

and told them the same thing.

They thanked me for calling and

that was that. I called my friend

Hans and he told me the sorry

tale, at least everything he knew or

guessed. It appeared that this guy

was collecting a lot of money from

his US customers and holding it.

He made up a variety of excuses

telling them that cars were delayed,

14 October


shipments missed, inspections

incomplete, deliveries rescheduled.

He had been in this business for a

long time and had a good reputation,

but he had other plans. He

kept all the money and skipped

out with his wife to Brazil, taking

over US$2 Million. What really

made me mad was that he and

his wife left their two huge Great

Danes at the office, with just a bit

of food and water. They were found

several days later, very hungry, very

thirsty, but only a little worse for it.

Hans reminded me “I told you so;”

he knew this fellow’s true character.

Too bad for me – and all the

rest of the people that got ripped

off – that we did not know how

this guy really operated. I thanked

Hans. I was done buying grey

market cars, the tide had turned,

and there was little demand. It was

fun while it lasted. But in the end,

it withered on the vine, another

victim of its own success; there

were too many people trying to sell

too many cars to too few people.

So I was stuck with this beat down

914. A few weeks later, I still had

not registered the car, but knew

that I should. The paper tag had

just about expired when I went

to register it. I had been dreading

it, as all the paperwork was

in German. I went into the Texas

Department of Transportation

and patiently waited my turn.

I went to the window and placed

the request for a Texas title on

the counter along with all the

supporting information. The gal

behind the counter took one look

at it and hung her head, shaking

it back and forth, no doubt asking

herself, “why did I get him?”

She looked at me and asked what

language this was in. I replied that

it was German, and she informed

me that she did not read German.

I told her that I did not either.

This was going to take a while.

She told me to wait while she went

to get a supervisor; both returned a

short time later, and I went through

the same info once again. At one

point they just looked at each

other, having no idea what to do.

Finally the supervisor said to the

gal to do the best she could, turned

and walked away. Wow! I pointed

to each section and told her what

it meant (I at least knew enough

about German titles from all the

cars I imported) and together we

figured it all out. It took a long

time, and no doubt all those folks

behind me in line wished I was

somewhere else. But I left with a

temporary title, plates, and a registration

sticker. The car was now

US legal. A 1972 Porsche 914 with

a lot of rust . . . wow, the dream

of Porsche ownership fulfilled.

And on that exhaust note, see you

all next time.

Seat Time: Charlie Davis’ Photography Workshop

By John Leto

Another beautiful August Saturday morning began

when I woke up at 8am, thinking that I wanted

to sleep in. Time to get started on those Saturday

chores, oh boy. I knew I was forgetting something,

when my ears started burning, and a little voice told

me to check e-mail. Yeah right, something I actually

do at home about once every three years.

I fired up the old bit pusher and logged into e-mail.

About 18 e-mails down the pile I spotted one from

Charlie Davis dated 8/23. I opened the e-mail and

discovered I was waitlisted for today’s photography

workshop. There were a couple of cancellations

and he wanted to know if I could make it. Now

it’s 9am and I’m about 20 miles and 6 million red

traffic lights away. I told Charlie “I’m on my way.”

I think events are more enjoyable when you’re rushing

to make it in time for the drivers’ meeting!

Photos by The Class

I arrived at Park Place Porsche with 5 minutes

to spare, and was greeted by Parts Manager Randall

Johnson with a blocked off parking spot just

for me. Randall escorted me to the classroom

full of Mavs. Charlie was behind a computer, a

DLP projector, and a huge wall screen. Cool!

Charlie introduced the topic: The Slipstream team

is looking for photographs taken by Region members

from the many first-class events that take place

Second Place: Will Leven, Canon EOS 50D

First Place: Bill Young, Nikon Df

From my experience, if you have a chance to attend a

free workshop associated with your hobby, take advantage

of it. Regardless of the hobby, seat time makes

you better. Especially when it is a Maverick event!

throughout the year. He introduced the workshop

goals: (1) We will learn how to be Maverick Slipstream

photographers; (2) we will receive an introduction

to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and (3)

we will be shooting photographs for an informal

competition. In true Maverick tradition there are

prizes for 1st and 2nd place. Prizes at a photography

workshop? I learn something new every day.

Then came the photo competition rules (PCR’s):

We get turned loose in the Park Place Porsche multistory

parking garage, for an hour, with ALL new

Porsches, and a goal to take photographs with

Brian O’Hearn, Nikon D700

Porsches and Mavs in the frame,

in RAW format. Okay, Porsches

and People; I can dig it!

After an hour we were directed

back to the classroom, where we

all had lunch, while Charlie collected

from each of us our single

most favorite photograph. We then

all worked through each photo

as a group, cropping, shading,

highlighting, and tweaking each

photo before the judging began.

John Leto, Pentax K10D

We judged each photo until we

had the Top Three, but only 1st

and 2nd place would trophy.

You be the judge. The 1st and

2nd place photos are not your

grandma’s Brownie snap shots;

they are winners. The first ever

Photography Workshop was a

typical Maverick event, professional

and interactive all the way.

Chores? What chores? When it’s

another beautiful day in the Maverick

Region? Because it’s not just the

cars, it’s the people (with photos to

prove it).

It’s Not Just the Cameras, It’s the People!

Our Photography Workshop is history. I think we generated

some enthusiasm among the attendees and the students took

some good photos during the Workshop. They are in the MR

Gallery:

http://mavpca.org/photos/MRPhotoGallery/index.html

You will find lots of other photos in this Gallery.

If you didn’t attend the Workshop, all the lessons are available:

http://mavpca.org/photos/PhotographyWorkshop/PDF/

The next step is our first Photography Contest, which will be

in conjunction with Founder’s Day. Three professional photographers

will judge this contest. All of them are current/

past MR members, so they understand. You do not have to be

a professional or have attended our Photography Workshop to

enter. There is no entry fee. There will be prizes and publication

in Slipstream.

We will have details soon; keep watching!

Boxstoberfest 2014: First-Timer Impressions

By Linda Bambina

Yep! Alan and I are First Timers at

something Porsche! We’ve been

part of Maverick Region for over 30

years and have been active a great

deal of that time. But I had no clue

that Boxstoberfest has been happening

in one of my favorite getaways,

Fredericksburg, for 16 years!

I became interested when one of my ex-students,

Derek Stutsman, saw us at the Porsche Parade in Monterey

this summer and had given me quite a pitch to

try it! He has attended about half the events, starting

with the VERY first one back in 1998. He remembers

that “the Boxster was still a pretty rare car back then,

so they drew a crowd everywhere they stopped.” With

guidance from Gabe Sorrells about the Hanger Hotel

and how to find the registration info, we were set.

Photos by George Luxbacher

Alan and Linda Bambina, Tom Froehlich, John and BJ

Harvey, and Kitty Krielen head to the Drivers’ Meeting

But there was still another surprise waiting for us on

the morning that we parked 112 Porsches along the

perimeter of the local airport: a delightful “ghost”

from the past!! Bob Bianconi had been Maverick’s

Concours Chair for our 2004 Porsche Parade in

Ft. Worth, AND it turns out, one of the “founding

fathers” of the Boxstoberfest event! A natural innovator,

he was also the one who created the popular

Concours event at May at Mayo’s decades ago.

There were about 25 Maverick couples this year,

which was a delight. This event is organized so

that you have lots of time for visiting! As it turns

out, there is also lots of time for dancing! Just

ask the Harveys or the Froehlichs -- they were

the life of the party out on the dance floor, when

the Swing Band played after Saturday’s dinner in

the Quonset Huts next to the Hanger Hotel.

A total of 112 Porsches lined up for

a photo opp on the tarmac.

and Kim Van Sicklen with Gabe and Chris Sorrells.

Background: Mark and Susan Winkelman, Tracy

and David Robertson, and Kitty and Jack Krielen.

A word from your Tourmeister:

Special thanks to Michael Shassere and his team in

organizing another fabulous Boxstoberfest. Also,

thank you Jeff Van Sicklen and Park Place Porsche

for sponsoring the event. Speaking as a route leader,

we had a tight group that seemed to flow through the

twisties like water down a stream. The band this year

was fantastic, and it was well received by the Mavericks,

as we entertained the entire banquet crowd and

didn’t even require a cover charge!

The spoiler inscription pretty much sums it up . . .

Some of my observations concerning the Saturday

dance contest:

• Susan Eagan and Brendan “Boots” Eagan: Best

Gliding around the Dance Floor.

• B.J. Harvey, Dee Luxbacher, and Susan Froehlich:

Best All-Girl “Vegas Style” Dance-A-Thon.

• Myself: Best One-Legged dancing involving a

Sceptre.

See you all again next year!
