Shifting Gears: Drivers’ Education – Try It, You’ll Like It!

By Jim Falgout, Region President

Wow! Your club is still growing.

At the end of April we were

three members shy of 2,400.

That is great. I hope it is because we

offer plenty of opportunities for folks

to enjoy their special auto, a Porsche,

and fellowship with others.

Another milestone: this year PCA, Porsche Club of

America, celebrates its 60th anniversary. PCA is the largest

auto club for a single marque in the world.

As I write this, some of our members are on their way

to Austin to participate or volunteer in the Club Race

and Solo DE at the Circuit of the Americas racetrack.

What a great opportunity! Word is that volunteers will

get to drive on the track during charity laps. If you are

not familiar with charity laps, let me enlighten you.

“If you are

not familiar

with charity

laps, let me

enlighten you.

They give nonparticipants

an opportunity

to see how it

feels to drive

their Porsche

on a track.”

At all of our Drivers’ Education

(DE) events, we offer an opportunity

for both DE participants

and non-participants to drive

the course in a follow-the-leader

formation. It gives participants

another opportunity to determine

their lines, and it gives

non-participants an opportunity

to see how it feels to drive their

Porsche on a track. The speed is

controlled and there is no passing,

so it does not put any wear

on the vehicle. I would encourage

you to go out to our next DE,

which will be in September, and

do two things: observe how others are driving on the

course during the sessions, and then drive in the charity

laps to see how it feels. (A donation is required to

participate in charity laps. The funds go to our charity,

Hope House.)

Early in my membership, we had

a Sunday Drive which ended at a

DE. All of the Sunday Drivers were

invited to take the charity laps. I

determined during that event that I

wanted to really enjoy my Porsche on

a track, driving it fast in a safe environment.

I do not get to participate

in many DE’s but when I do, I really

enjoy them.

While we do not have a DE in

June, we have many other events for

2 June

you to enjoy your Porsche and fellowship. Please

check out the calendar in Slipstream or on our website,

mav.pca.org.

Of course, I was not going to omit an appeal for volunteers.

I have challenged all committee chairs to get

assistants.

YOUR CLUBS WANTS YOU . . . to get

involved. You will really be glad you did.

Mav of the Month

We have many members who have passion for their

Porsche and the club. No one exhibits that more than

our MAV of the MONTH. I asked

her to take on a committee and she

has gone above and beyond in fulfilling

that role. She cares especially

deeply about new members. Even

with a career that demands a great

amount of her time, she finds time

to not only do an outstanding job

with her committee, but also help

other committees. Our MAV of the

Month is Stephanie Ho. Thank you

Stephanie for all you do.

Around the Bend...

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor

With an unusally wet spring

that continued through the

month of May this year, Mav

members have had a challenge keeping

their rides clean after their exercise

regimen. Fortunately, our drives,

rallies, and many other club events

have somehow been able to miss these

showers and carry on as planned.

Each month, Slipstream attempts to bring our members

highlights of the multitude of club happenings as well

as updates on the many upcoming opportunities for

your participation. I appreciate the many members who

serve as authors of these articles in addition to those

members who actively contribute photographs to provide

visual interest to the stories.

Beginning with this issue, I’m going to introduce the

concept of a “hybrid” magazine. No, don’t worry, theprint

version of Slipstream you’ve come to know

and love is not undergoing any radical changes.

For example, Wendy Shoffit publishes each

Slipstream in PDF format via our club website. The

advantage of that version starts with it being in

full-color and continues with online links being

available to give you even more content than what is on

the printed pages. You can get each issue in PDF format

at http://mav.pca.org/ under the Newsletter tab.

I’ll also begin including QR codes to enable you to use

your mobile device to access even more information.

Search “QR code” to get a reader for your phone or

other mobile device.

As an example of the concept for

the Slipstream hybrid, use this QR

code to check out what Porsche

is thinking about a possible 911

hybrid option with the next scheduled

update of that model.

And remember, I provide daily

updates to remind you of club and other Porsche events

and news via our Twitter feed at https://twitter.com/

MaverickPCA and hashtag of #mavpca.

Finally, don’t forget to update your wardrobe

for this summer driving season by visiting our

online club Goodie Store as noted below.

Read on to see what’s “around the bend” in this

month’s issue!

Gimme a Minute: May Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary May 6, 2015

President

Jim Falgout

started the

meeting at 6:59

PM. He continues

to encourage Event

Chairs to find assistants

to help out or

step in should the

need arise.

Secretary Wendy Shoffit reported

that she and James had a fabulous

time in Germany, thanks to the support

of Maverick Region (the trip

was a raffle prize at the 2012 Founders’

Day celebration) and the help

of Linda Bambina. The Club Race

at COTA was the following weekend

and was looking good. We should be

financially profitable with it. There

is an upcoming DE on May 23-24

(Memorial Weekend) that could use

an entrant boost.

Autocross Chair Wes Lincoln

couldn’t attend the meeting, but

sent a report that the autocross

school will be Saturday, May 30 (entry

fee $40) followed by an autocross

(a “mirror-cross”) on Sunday, May

31, which is free for school entrants

and $35 for others. He is also working

with the BMW club for a combined

event in the fall. Details to

come.

Concours Chair Andy Kay said he

enjoyed the DE he participated in

very much and had excellent instruction.

He reported that the April

Detailing Clinic at Jack’s Garage had

about 30 attendees (including some

new members), which was a great

success. The May at Mayo’s event

had 120 for dinner and 38 cars in

the show. He presented two “Best

in Show” awards (one for air-cooled

and one for water-cooled cars). He

has products generously donated by

Griot’s Garage to give away at several

events. Next is Autos in the Park on

Sunday, June 7 at the Cooper Aerobics

Center in Dallas.

Treasurer Richard Solomon said

we have roughly $137K in the bank.

We are a little above break-even for

last year (income versus expenses).

DE is currently operating with a

small loss this year, but that should

change. He suggested we promote

the Goodie Store more.

David Robertson filled in for wife,

Social Chair Tracy Robertson.

Founders’ Day will again be at Bent

Tree in November. He also reported

that May at Mayo’s was a great event.

PR Chair Linda Bambina commented

that Jim and Carey are

doing great with the Slipstream

schedule! She will be looking for an

article about the COTA race. She is

also looking for the Maverick Region

banners for use at the upcoming

Autos in the Park event.

Editor Jim Hirsch expressed his appreciation

for all the article writers

and photos sent (complete with captions!).

We are increasing the print

number again for mailings, as needed.

The deadline for the July issue

will be June 8 (instead of June 10)

to accommodate his travel schedule.

He asked about a club calendar that

was mentioned earlier this year. Distribution

was discussed, mailing or

selling in person at Founders’ Day.

He also mentioned the upcoming

printed directory. We will give members

two months to opt out.

Co-Editor Carey Spreen is glad to

be Jim’s assistant. To show appreciation

for the donated goodies, we will

be sending Griot’s Garage a copy of

the newsletter each month.

Sunday Drive Chair Tom Martin

reported that Neill Flood is his assistant

and is actively working to

recruit a few more helpers. The

April Bluebonnet drive was great.

Despite a bad forecast, it turned out

to be good weather. Unfortunately,

because of the Bluebonnet Festival,

the roads were a bit too crowded

and the restaurant that promised

space was also overwhelmed. That

won’t be a problem for the May 30

“Little Ranch on the Prairie” drive,

which will have a catered meal. That

event might be the first ever drive

to make a small profit. A beautiful

drive is coming up in the fall thanks

to the help of some of our East Texas

members.

Rally Chair Don Sebert said he had

a wonderful rally on April 25 with a

great 21-car turnout. George Luxbacher

is his Rally assistant. At the

rally they gave trophies out to 5th

place, plus a “Dead Last But Finished”

and ”Good Job” award (given

to enthusiastic new members). Unfortunately,

they didn’t have a good

place or time during the event to

hand out awards, but they will work

on improving that for next time.

He has received THREE articles

for Slipstream about the event. The

next rally will be in the fall. Check

back for dates and details.

Calendar Chair Brendan Eagan

has worked to improve the look of

online calendar events, including

pictures. He will work to get a 6th

grader to assist, since he admits that

most 6th graders could do his job!

DE Chair Chris Tabor has Daren

Kirbo as an assistant. He commented

that when picking dates last year for

this year’s events, he unfortunately

picked some bad ones, but will work

to improve that for next year. For

example, he will be dropping the

March (spring break) event next

year. The track costs have gone up

and attendance has gone down,

which has put us a bit financially in

the hole for the year. We will continue

to encourage DE attendance.

Mark Schnoerr suggested that we

promote the gentler side of DEs.

Drivers do NOT have to beat their

cars up and run through tires excessively.

He would also like to promote

other driving events of interest to

members.

Membership Chairs Tom and Susan

Froehlich reported 1539 primary

and 857 affiliate members for

a total of 2396. Slightly down from

last month.

Monthly Dinner Social Chair

Stephanie Ho is excited that the

event at Lavendou is coming up. She

has 130 interested, but only 115 slots

guaranteed. There is great interest

and wishes there was more space.

Jim Falgout ended the meeting

reporting that Stephanie Ho is our

Mav of the Month. Congratulations!

Meeting was adjourned.

“ . . . it’s the people”: Team Howard

By Linda Bambina, PR Chair

Travis and

Robyn

Howard

have been very

active members of

Maverick Region

since 2003. They

are approachable,

dedicated to the club, and excellent

drivers in a Region filled with many

top-notch drivers. Their contributions

to the Region and area are of

epic proportion.

“Robyn and Travis have a passion

for Porsches, but a bigger passion

for helping others.” - Bryan Bell

(past AX Chair and Maverick VP)

Travis has been Time Trial Chair

since 2008, and in 2013 also assumed

the position of Autocross

Chair, stepping down at the end of

2014. Prior to taking on that additional

position, he worked very hard

to train prior AX Chairs and worked

seamlessly with them to put on great

driving events.

Since 2011, Robyn has contributed

in a major way to the AX/TT program,

having been the Registrar for

every event. As

Registrar, she handles

all pre-event

advertising and

communication

with registrants.

The day of the

event she checks

them all in, handles

any classification

changes, and

generates the list

of corner worker

assignments. She

often works in the

timing trailer to

ensure that the

official scores are

8 June

correct. All this she does when she’s

NOT driving IN the event. When she

drives, she wins her class and tries

to beat her husband’s times. She

was even the Region’s Top Ladies’

Driver in 2011. Not be outdone,

Travis won the Mens’ Top Driver the

following year! Now that’s a great

driving team!

Not only did Robyn and Travis run

the AX/TT events, but they continue

to participate in other organizations’

events to get other ideas and

build camaraderie. Robyn actively

promotes our events using social

media.

As a couple, they have put on the

annual Autocross School event since

2010. This is the introductory level

event for many new drivers who are

curious about how these beautiful

cars are REALLY meant to be driven.

Not only do they set up the logistics

of the event, they recruit instructors

and workers to make it an event that

is unforgettable for attendees.

Travis also maintains a critical piece

of equipment for the program. We

lovingly call it the “Truxster,” which

is a step van that houses all of our

necessary apparatus (cones, timing

Travis and Robyn at the Monterey Autocross Awards

Photos by the Author

devices, flags, loaner helmets, etc.),

and which requires a great deal of

maintenance, including fabricating

door panels from scratch. It’s a constant

battle keeping the thing moving,

but he’s always up for the task.

Robyn has chaired our annual Swap

Meet event since 2010. She provides

enthusiasm sweeter than the doughnuts

they bring in the morning. This

is a great opportunity for members

to come find great deals while socializing

with PCA friends.

Our Driver Education program was

enhanced when Travis took over the

very difficult task as Gridmaster in

2010. He did such a great job, he

was invited to be Gridmaster at our

PCA Club Race that same year. He

is now “Gridmaster T” at the multiregion

Club Race at Circuit of the

Americas. The COTA event is one

of the largest Club Races in the

country and Travis, along with wife

Robyn and a grid team, do a job that

is second to none.

Travis and Robyn don’t just care

about the Porsche Club and its

members. They are also huge supporters

of our Region’s charity, the

Hope House. They find ways during

the year to raise

money, and have

put on a “Run

What You Brung”

Charity Autocross

in years past. During

their work at

the DE events,

Travis sacrifices

his lunch hour

(his only break)

to make sure that

Charity Laps happen.

These events

alone raise hundreds

of dollars

for the women’s

shelter. At our

annual Founders’


Travis and Robyn with Region VP Gareth Maurice

stirring up trouble at an All Member Party

Day event, Robyn is a happy bidder for the silent auction,

from which all proceeds go directly to the shelter.

Travis takes it even one giant step further. He considered

the cause so important that he selected the Hope

House to be his charity of focus with his employer, who

matches 50% of Travis’ donations. Travis has even gotten

three of his co-workers to support the Hope House

as well, and their donations also receive the company

match! This is an amazing charity, and the Howards’

dedication and support of this cause is evident.

The Howards aren’t content with owning just one

Porsche. Their love of the marque has drawn them to

purchasing SEVEN of them. Travis has chosen for himself

a 1974 914, 1985 911 Targa, and a 2003 996, while

Robyn has a 1986 944, 1987 924S, 2002 Boxster S, and

a 2003 Boxster. Travis’ first Porsche (his self-proclaimed

mid-life crisis car) was the ‘85 911. Mechanic Travis does

the work on all of their Porsches (and a few other cars

we won’t mention here). Their backyard has turned

into a fabulous looking parking lot -- the envy of the

neighborhood.

Maverick Region has realized the importance of the

contributions made by both Robyn and Travis. As such,

Travis has been recognized twice as “Maverick of the

Month” and received the coveted Richard F. Selcer Memorial

Award in 2013. Robyn was honored with the

Gregg Murrell Driving Enthusiast Trophy in 2014.

“I have been going to races almost every year since

the late 80s and I can say that Travis runs the TT & AX

as well as the best have done it in the past. Our weekends

run smoothly and he is the guru who keeps the

electronics going. To his credit he does two jobs with

a smile on his face. The Club has lots of great folks—

Travis is at the front of that pack.” - Richard Diller (30

yr. Mav, driving 152 miles each way to attend our

events.)

The Tub Club Gets Creative: Glassblowing at SiNaCa

By Barbara Madsen

Twelve Tub

Club members

had

an opportunity on

April 11 to express

their creativity

while attending a

glass blowing session

at SiNaCa Studios’ School of

Glass and Gallery. The studio is

housed in an antique service station

close to the historic district in Fort

Worth. Janet Brown, a Tub Club

member, organized the event. She

did a fabulous job of disseminating

information about the event to

other members, plus she made sure

everything ran smoothly on the day

of the activity.

carefully demonstrated the step-bystep

process of making a bowl from

a glob of molten glass, the object

d’art being made during this session.

Everyone listened carefully to

both the instructions and cautions

in working with hot glass. A long

metal pole called a blow pipe was

dipped into a furnace filled with

molten glass, and there were several

steps to be followed after this point

in creating a finished product.

The process began by adding colored

crystals to the molten glass,

and culminated with a unique bowl

ready to go into the annealer, where

it would slowly be allowed to cool

over several hours. Throughout

each of these steps, SiNaCa employees

individually guided each person

Chris Morris observes as Kelley

McCabe shows her how to shape

the hot glass before blowing

during the procedure. Since there

were four SiNaCa instructors, only

two people at a time could make

their bowls. This was still enjoyable

for the ones waiting, however, as

everyone could watch the activity repeatedly

while learning more about

blowing glass. No two bowls were

alike, and it was fun to see how different

color combinations turned

out.

After all the bowls were made, Clifton

gave a brief lesson on glass and

the history of glass blowing. It was

both an informative and creative

day for all who attended.

Bartonville-Frisco Gimmick Rally: A New Rallyist Perspective

By Meg Moore

Photo by George Luxbacher

After a week

of chilly

stormy

weather, the morning

of the Maverick

Porsche Rally

dawned bright and

dry. Except for the

rare puddle, it was going to be a

good day for a rally.

We pulled into the Bartonville

Shopping Plaza, and there they

were, 20 or more sparkling Porsches

. . . and that little tickle in my stomach

that I get when I see one is multiplied

into a frenzy of calm excitement.

As we walk over to the other

team members, we visit and enjoy

Starting point at the

Bartonville Shopping Plaza

getting to know new people and

their different stories of how they

came to be Porsche owners.

Rally Co-Chairs Don Sebert and

George Luxbacher called a drivers’

meeting for some general housekeeping,

to give details of the route,

and to note what we could expect

and what we would not encounter.

They joked about how some couples

may require therapy afterwards, and

implored us to try not to take it all too

seriously. Different acronyms were

used and defined, and hints were

dropped. We struggled to absorb

it all and try not to get too stressed

over it. Then they handed out the

packets of rules, cryptic directions,

24 images of things to make note of

along the way, score sheet with more

items to notate, and even a glossary

-- who’s going to have time for that?

One of the tiebreaker elements was

to circle each state we “drive over,

through or by” and my husband immediately

said, “Oh my gosh, they

have us going all the way to Oklahoma!”

The other tiebreaker was

to count all of the birdhouses along

the way. As the navigator, I freaked a

little at the thought of that.

We reviewed all those pages (so

many pages) quickly and walked to

our car, telling ourselves that we’re

not going to take this too seriously.

It’s all for fun, right? Then we got in

the line-up of beautiful cars to take

our turn at the fun. Just listening

to two dozen Porsches idle is worth

it, then to look around and see

passersby stop and point is kind of

heady. Of course most Porsche owners

don’t get a car for that reason,

it’s just the love of the machine; it

can still make you feel proud.

The route was amazing, bringing

that old song, “Over the river

and through the woods…”

to life. Beginning in the

contemporary community

of Lantana, we quickly

found ourselves in a much

more rural setting, passing

by horse ranches and

farmland. Then before we

knew it we were crossing a

bridge over a now-full Lake

Lewisville. We passed, and

took note of “fantasyful”

birdhouses, billboards that

seemed out of place, rusty

tractors that looked like

huge pieces of art, signs

that filled us with relief that

we were still on the right

path, storefronts that were

straight out of yesterday,

and so on. With just over

68 miles racked up, we

ended at the Museum of

the American Railroad in

Frisco.

There were Don and George again,

accepting our score sheets and asking

how we liked the rally. We chatted

a bit, then headed over to the

railroad museum. We toured giant

steam locomotives, diesel locomotives,

passenger cars, a caboose, and

the once first class of the railways,

Pullman cars, all brought to life by

a very knowledgeable guide. Hungry,

we made our way over to Babe’s

Chicken to join the club for a hearty

meal and exchange stories of the

rally. We were amused to learn that

we tied for second place with two

other teams. Remember those tiebreakers?

Well, we walked away with

a 3rd place award!

At the end of the day, it’s not for an

award, it’s entirely for the adventure,

sights, and fellowship that we

participate. Thank you Maverick

Region for another wonderful

event. We are proud to be members

and fortunate to be Porsche

owners!

Saturday Drive: Ennis Bluebonnet Tour

By Neill Flood, Sunday Drive Co-Chair

Spring driving

tours can

sometimes be

a little tricky due to

the increased possibility

of rain, but

we were truly fortunate

with the Ennis

Bluebonnet Tour as blue skies were

plentiful on a gorgeous Saturday.

The event began at an abandoned

bank parking lot in Hutchins, where

we counted 54 Porsches. I’ve always

looked forward to seeing the variety

of cars that

attend these

events, and this

tour was no different,

with aircooled

911s up

to the current

model lineup

present. Once

everyone had

the opportunity Drive Co-Chairs

to do some tire Neill Flood and

kicking and Tom Martin

chat, Tom Martin

gave us a

brief the group

safety briefing, and we were off!

With this drive, there was an emphasis

on taking in the excellent

scenery and each attendee was encouraged

to bring a camera to capture

the sights. The route was about

85 miles and included straights and

of course some twisty sections for

everyone’s enjoyment. I’ve heard a

of Bluebonnets are in this part of

the state, and this drive didn’t disappoint.

In fact, the rolling hills of

bright floral colors must be seen

especially when the Bluebonnets

are in full bloom. Each drive group

made several stops along the route

to allow everyone the opportunity

to stretch their legs and snap a few

photos. I was surprised to see the

amount of tourists we experienced

on the remote country roads, and

even a couple of chartered buses

joined us on the winding route. It

was actually quite amusing to see

some of the tourists taking pictures

of our cars, as it appeared they were

as much of an attraction as the Bluebonnets.

Being a drive leader on this tour was

actually somewhat of a challenge to

find the “best” parking spots to take

photos, as there were so many sce-

nic opportunities to be found. Each

stopping point included unique settings

from rolling hills to rustic farm

houses. My favorite spot was an old

abandoned house just off the road,

with Bluebonnets everywhere!

The final destination was at Bubba’s

Bar-B-Q in Ennis. The Barbecue

choices at Bubba’s were numerous,

along with traditional items such as

brisket and sausage. The food and

service at Bubba’s was great and the

restaurant did a nice job of accom-

Destination Restoration:

A Suspension Odyssey Part 6: Brake Caliper Rebuild

By Ash Seidl-Staley

The long awaited article about

rebuilding brake calipers has

arrived—well part one of it

at least! As previously mentioned in

other articles, I will only be focusing

on how to rebuild the front calipers,

although the procedures outlined below

could be used on the rear calipers

in a very similar manner.

Questions you might ask yourself are why and when

should I rebuild my calipers? More often than not your

car’s calipers will be just fine, even with years and years

of use. Many well-maintained and regularly driven cars

have fully functioning calipers that last beyond the life

time of the car. Cars that spend their days sitting inoperable,

decaying in fields, and forever stay on the back

burner have a higher chance of calipers rusting and

seizing.

A general rule would be to check the condition of the

caliper and its pistons when you are changing brake

pads. When looking, take note of the overall condition

of the caliper, making sure to document the existence

of any chips or rust spots on or around the piston faces.

A little surface rust is actually ok,

but if there are any heavier areas or

deep pitting the caliper will probably

need replaced. In other drastic

cases you might find that the

pistons on your caliper are acting

like they are stuck, i.e. they won’t

go in when you try to press them

back into their housings. This was

the case with my car’s brakes. The

driver’s side caliper had a stuck

piston that just wouldn’t budge.

Rusty piston

Rather than spend many dollars on a refurbished set

of calipers, I decided to tackle the rebuild myself. To

my surprise the process is actually quite simple, and if

you’re lucky you won’t even have to split the caliper into

its two halves.

To start the rebuild you must first get the caliper off of

the car. As always, start by safely jacking up the car. Then

remove the wheel, unbolt the caliper from the strut assembly,

and pop it off the brake disc, all the while taking

care not to bend or break the metal brake line. Taking

a 10mm wrench, carefully back out the brake line bolt/

plug on the back of the caliper. Be sure to have extra

rags underneath the caliper and around you as these

next steps can get a little messy. Remove the bolt/plug

Photo by the Author

that feeds brake fluid into the caliper and set your caliper

down, being careful not to let brake fluid gush out

everywhere.

Some tips to stop the fluid from freely flowing out of

the brake line include: crimping the rubber brake line

coming from the inner fender well, rigging a system

to keep the brake pedal in the cabin depressed, or my

personal favorite, plug up the bolt with one of the cars

brake bleeder grommets.

Once you find your method and have removed the

caliper, take it over to your work station and let the remaining

fluid drain out of the caliper. Now it is time for

the fun part - getting pistons out of their housings. This

step can be difficult with a stuck piston but with a little

patience all can be achieved. Take a small screwdriver

and pop off the retaining clip and rubber boot that surround

the pistons. Take a C-clamp and clamp down one

of the pistons to keep it in its housing, and then place

a small block of wood in between the pistons. Hook up

the hose from an air compressor to the hole where the

brake line was attached and slowly blow air in to get the

piston to creep out. Before it falls completely out, take

the C-clamp off of the piston while still in its housing

and gently attach it to the extended piston. This keeps

the extended piston from moving, and keeps the necessary

vacuum needed to push the other piston out. Next,

pump in some more air and eventually you should have

two extended pistons on your caliper. Remove the wood

block and take a rag and pull out each piston. A pair

of vise-grips can be used but take care not to scratch or

score the smooth sides of the pistons.

If an air compressor is unavailable to you, you can hook

the caliper back up to the car sans brake pads, and have

someone push down on the brake pedal. Similar to the

previous method take care not to let just one piston fall

out of the caliper. This process should extend the pistons

enough to get a grip on them for removal. If neither

of these methods has dislodged the stuck piston a

final, more barbaric method would be to split the caliper

into its two halves, and hit the back side of the calipers

with a 2X4 or something similar. You might laugh

at this procedure but I have done it and it works wonders,

especially for a stubborn 40+ year old rusty 914

caliper.Now that you have separated the caliper and the

pistons it is time to clean everything, and replace the

inner housing seal. Unfortunately we are out of space

for this month, so stay tuned for the caliper clean up

and reinstallation in next month’s issue!
