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

By Carey Spreen, Managing Editor
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
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 (email@example.com). I already have one or
two folks who have expressed interest, but the more the
I hope you enjoy this issue. Read on!
Gimme a Minute: September Board Meeting
By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary September 3, 2014
Jim Hirsch, Jouni
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.
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
are big, bigger,
and huge. I’ve
seen garages with
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?
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.
Photos by the Author
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.
13mm bolt at base of shifter used for adjustment
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

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,
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
Steve Cloutier, Nikon D5100
Linda Bambina, Nikon D40X
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
It’s Not Just the Cameras, It’s the People!

some enthusiasm among the attendees and the students took
some good photos during the Workshop. They are in the MR

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.

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.

The whole location outside of Fredericksburg is a
fantastic set up for some fabulous fun. There’s an
“Officer’s Club” where everyone can play pool, visit,
and have drinks from the beautiful bar. There’s a ’50s
style Diner with great food, fun atmosphere, and huge
windows viewing the active airfield. There’s an old ’26

cool. Yes, it was all very cool.

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 . . .
