Shifting Gears: The Final Drives of 2016

By Jim Falgout, Region President

st Gear – I am writing this shortly after our

1

“Annual Celebration,” formerly known as

Founders’ Day. Tracy Robertson and Phyllis

Gallegos did a fine job organizing this

event. Everyone who attended had an enjoyable evening.

Some of us obtained some nice items in the silent

auction. The proceeds of the silent auction go to one

of our charities, the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House. We

saw some fine pictures of Porsches that members had

entered in the photography contest.

At the Annual Celebration, the Richard F. Selcer

Memorial Award is often presented. This award is given

to a member of the club who has exhibited superior

performance and dedication to the Maverick Region.

The Selcer Award was presented to John Hamilton this

year. John preceded me as president. He is an excellent

example of someone who has a great passion for the

club and will fill any role to make sure it is successful.

Apparently, everyone there agreed because they gave

him a standing ovation.

2nd Gear – This coming weekend is the annual club

race at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson, Texas. Hopefully

you were able to attend or participate in this fun event.

3rd Gear – You are reading this in the last month of

the year. We do not have many club events in December

with all the holiday activities our members already

have scheduled. In fact, our next Monthly Social is not

scheduled until February. Hope you can make that

event. Stephanie Ho always does a great job in arranging

those activities.

4th Gear – This is also the last month of my second

term as your President. It has been an honor to serve

you. This club has the benefit of having great members

who contribute their time and talents towards its

success. It has been a pleasure working with everyone

involved. We have had some challenges, members who

suddenly were unable to perform and in every case

someone else stepped up to fill the need.

5th Gear – The previous gear leads

me into my favorite topic: volunteering.

Your Club needs you…… Volunteer: You

will be glad you did.

6th Gear – I have often heard the expression

“It’s not just the cars, it’s the people.” I can

attest to that. As many of you know, I was struck with a

malady known as Guillean Barre’ Syndrome. Without

SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor

much warning, I lost the ability to walk. I was hospitalized

for three weeks and since then have been going

through rehabilitation. The good news is full recovery

is the prognosis. During my hospitalization, I received

emails, Facebook postings, cards, presents, visits, and

phone calls from members of Maverick Region. It was

amazing. I will be forever thankful for all those and the

prayers that were said for me. My recovery has been

exceptionally quick.

MAV OF THE MONTH: David Robertson

Our Mav of the Month was contributing to our club

long before he had an official role. His wife Tracy, was,

and still is a committee

chairperson and

he assisted her in

that role. Now he is

an officer, our current

vice president.

When I could not fill

my role as president,

he stepped in without

hesitation and

did a great job. Your

next president, David

Robertson, is

Mav of the Month, as

we come to the end

of 2016.

Gimme a Minute: November Board Meeting

By Wendy Shoffit, Region Secretary November 2, 2016

he meeting began at 6:59

T

pm. We welcomed President

Jim Falgout back.

He announced that

nominations for the PCA National

awards are due 12/31 and asked for

suggestions. Andy Kay nominated

Stephanie Ho for Enthusiast. Jim

also asked if anyone was interested in

becoming Zone 5 Representative, as

Lynn Friedman’s term was ending.

He put forth a request from Richard

Solomon to donate to the Boot

Campaign charity for their “Santa

Boots.” David Robertson made a

motion to donate $5K. Jim Falgout

seconded. The motion passed.

VP David Robertson reporting

for his wife, Social Chair Tracy Robertson,

said the Annual Celebration

is Saturday, Nov 5. As in the past, the

event will include the traditions of

the Selcer/Murrell Award presentation,

Silent Auction, Photo Contest,

and Officer Election. Changes include

a heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet

instead of the seated dinner.

Safety Chair Joe McGlohen announced

we have safe events with no

incidents being reported. All events

have been properly insured and are

well run, not just DE events, but all

with moving cars.

Charlie Davis was delivering raffle

items. He helped judge the photo

contest this year. There were more

entrants than last year and said they

were great quality. Next year they

might include a cell phone photo

category to adapt to how people

take pics.

Bill Middleton again thanked

the Tours and DE group for their

support of the Hope Shelter. PCA

Tours Chair Tom Martin gave him

additional gift cards that people

brought to the latest tour. He said

they all go to a good cause, including

a recent case with a mom and

five kids who arrived at Hope in

the middle of the night with nothing

but the clothes on their backs.

To celebrate the tenth year of their

facility, he encouraged all to attend

their Christmas party on Dec. 17,

which he wants to make bigger and

better.

Secretary Wendy Shoffit reported

for Goodie Store Chair Chris Flaugh

that the new logo window decals

were ready to distribute on Saturday.

He will continue to sell classic logo

merchandise until December 15,

but after that will be the new logo.

He also proposed to simplify the

name badge design to just have the

name, without city and vehicle info.

Reporting for Membership Chair

John Hamilton, we had a net loss of

13 members, but still have a positive

YTD increase of 40. He suggested

it’s time to update the membership

brochure, as the new digital display

panels have piqued more interest

and people have been taking more

copies. As DE and Club Race Registrar,

Wendy said we had a DE event

in September that had lower than

normal attendance, but since it was

on the shorter track, hopefully we

didn’t lose money. Registrations for

the Club Race (Nov. 12-13) this year

also seem to be down.

Kurt Skaggs is a Creative Director

by trade and a new PCA volunteer.

He is going to help the Slipstream

team with graphic design work.

Editor Jim Hirsch said we are

holding steady at 1900 copies/

month and is going to get price

quotes to print in full color. Bill

Kruder is contacting advertisers to

confirm who wants to receive printed

copies, if they are not already.

Jim thanked event chairs and all for

getting him content each month.

Co-Editor Carey Spreen continues

working with UNT to digitize

past Slipstreams. We were missing

1998 issues, but fortunately was

able to borrow them from Ed Mayo.

Kevin Hardison at Ussery Printing

will be preparing PDFs going backwards

in time, while UNT is going

forwards and they will meet in the

middle.

PCA Tours Chair Tom Martin

said that the last tour to Rancho

Sereno was great with 117 people

and 66 Porsches in attendance. He

had a surplus of $466, which will

cover the supply budget next year.

He collected an additional $225 in

Walmart Gift Cards for Hope. He

has been working with PCA National

Tour Chair Greg Halverson to

encourage the use of Garmin Base-

Camp as part of the program. He is

stepping back in 2017 to let Bill Orr

and Mark Pitarresi take the lead,

with additional help from interested

others. Mark stated he is glad to be

helping out with tours.

He has a potential set of dates

and routes already for next year.

Monthly Social Chair Stephanie

Ho reported that the Oktoberfest

event at Uncle Buck’s was well attended

by about 100 members, with

80 staying for dinner. The manager

invited us back for December and a

special holiday event. They want to

include a canned food drive as well.

There will not be one in January to

avoid conflict with the All Member

Party.

Calendar Chair Brendan Eagan

is turning over the reins to Karl

Poulsen next year. Karl has lurked

in PCA for years and now is happy

to help with the calendar.

Rally Chair Don Sebert said the

October event was successful with

30 cars and 60+ people, including

many in costume. They had a great

route and food. Hopes to be bigger

and better next year. John Harvey

and Jeff Sebert have volunteered to

help with the program.

6 December


Concours Chair Andy Kay mentioned PCA Palooza

was next weekend and there are at least two caravans

going. He will write an article about it, as one of the

largest events in PCA next to Parade. He also attends

other car show events, which he will promote on Facebook

for enthusiasts.

PCA Tours Co-Chair Bill Orr mentioned the upcoming

Coffee, Cones & Scones event at the autocross

on 11/13. He has been working hard to update our

website, including turning the new logo “on” Saturday

night after the Annual Celebration. He has also been

researching custom PCA license plates for Texas, which

could net us royalties. He will continue to do so.

Lastly, Jim Falgout announced this month’s Mav of

the Month is David Robertson, who did a great job stepping

in for him while he was recovering from an illness.

Great job, David!

Five Speed Chatter: A Little Shift in the Gears

By Ash Seidl-Staley

Photo courtesy of the Author

ell Mavs, it’s the end of another year. Maybe

W

I’m getting old but I feel like 2016 barely

just started, even with the debilitating and

oftentimes grueling presidential election

cycle! As a Gen-Y-er that is socially liberal yet fiscally

conservative I often feel isolated from the mainstream

hubbub. To be honest, I couldn’t care less about the

pageantry of the election; I care about results. Give me

a steady wage, a home, a garage, some gasoline, and

the means to buy a Porsche, and I’m a happy camper.

Hopefully we all survived the first month with our new

president elect, were able to enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving

meal, and have been spending the holiday season

with family and friends.

Looking forward to 2017, I plan on introducing

another set of themed articles for our prestigious newsletter.

Keeping up with my personal and professional

aspirations, I plan on researching the histories of various

events, mechanical innovations, and pop culture

phenomena relating to Porsche. Due to my graduate

work, the bookshelves in my study are already lined with

eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century American

histories, but tucked away within my authentic German

schrank are books all about our cars. I have access

to material about 911s, 914s, 924s, 944s, 968s, and 928s.

I have books describing the histories of Porsche racing,

as well as literature designating each model’s vehicle

specifications, not to mention a whole cache of Panoramas

and Slipstreams! The new series of articles will

cover a wide array of topics, from the reasoning behind

the hood scoop placement on the 924 Carrera GT to

revealing a few debates Germany Region members had

over what the best brakes were in the late 60s.

Not to worry though. The year 2017 will bring many

more Porsche-related “Chatter” articles, as well as some

much-needed “Destination Restoration” additions. I

am pleased to report that Jenny, Christian, and I will be

moving into our newly constructed house in the beginning

months of next year. At that

point I will finally have a garage,

and the real fun can actually begin;

someone has a 935 to build

remember . . .

Happy Holidays from the Seidl-Staleys,

and as always, Wrench

356s in the Ouachitas: The Tub Club Goes to Arkansas

By Barbara Madsen

n late October, Tub Club members were off

I

on another adventure, which included stops

in Sulphur Springs and Winnsboro, Texas

while on the way to our final destination,

Mount Magazine, Arkansas. Jim Usher did a fabulous

job of organizing the event!

Everyone loves a parade, and Tub Club members

are no exception! We were treated to a fabulous

antique car parade in Winnsboro, an event that is

part of their annual Autumn Fest Celebration. Alan

and Linda Bambina, Tub Club

members, have a vacation home

close to Winnsboro, and after

the parade, the club drove to

this delightful retreat, The Tree

House, which was nestled among

stately trees in the East Texas

Piney Woods, for a quick lunch

before continuing on to Mount

Magazine, the state’s tallest

mountain.

We left Texas behind and

traveled through the hills of

10 December

The Tub Club heading to The Tree House

Oklahoma and Arkansas along roads which snaked

their way through a mixture of green and sunsetcolored

trees as we traveled to our destination. Our

hotel, Mount Magazine Lodge, overlooked a valley

with a lake, and all of us had spectacular views of the

area from our windows. This hotel is located in Mount

Magazine State Park, so there were several meandering

hiking trails within walking distance of the hotel. It was

a nature lover’s dream!

The next day, we had a choice of two museums to

visit: the Crystal Bridges Museum

of American Art, and The

Museum of Automobiles. Each

museum had memorable displays

and, whether we chose the art

museum or the automobile

museum, all the club members

had a great time.

Thanks, Jim, for providing this

opportunity to the other

members of the club. We all

enjoyed ourselves thoroughly

and appreciate your hard work!


PCA Tours Recap: Rancho Sereno Redux

By Tom Martin, PCA Tours Co-Chair

hile waxing nostalgic recently, the song

W

“Happy Trails” popped into my head. You

remember that golden oldie from Roy Rogers,

don’t you? The song struck a certain

chord in my head; I think it was G Major, or maybe it

was Asia Minor. Whatever. “Happy trails to you, until we

meet again . . . ”

No matter my efforts, I could not delete that engaging

little ditty from my brain. It became clear that a

flush was needed. It was time for another PCA Tour to

Rancho Sereno.

And so, on a temperate

Saturday morning in mid-

October, 117 Mavericks in

66 Porsches flocked to the

campus of Grayson College

in Van Alstyne to embark

upon a spirited 90-mile jaunt

to Rancho Sereno in Whitesboro.

The ranch is located

smack dab in the middle of

horse ranch country, just

about seven miles from Michael

Schumacher’s ranch

Bill Orr marks the

gathering point for the

PCA Tour with club flags

in nearby Gordonville.

An eleventh-hour change

in the route was necessitated

when ranch owner Mike Maberry

informed me that downtown Whitesboro would

be closed to traffic on the day of the Tour because of

the Whitesboro Peanut Celebration -- and you don’t

mess with Mr. Peanut. Initially the last leg of the Tour

ran through the downtown area, so a detour was incorporated

into the route, which actually turned out quite

well.

Unlike most Tours, the first 10-15 miles of the route

was not dedicated to getting out of the confines of the

Metroplex. Right from the initial off, Mavericks were

able to experience the exhilaration of exploring their

Porsches’ limits on wide open, challenging twisties.

And so we drove, through the sleepy towns of

Weston, Celina, and Pilot Point, and then the small

hamlets of Tioga, Gunter, and Dorchester, before ambling

through the pastoral towns of Sadler, Whitesboro,

and Callisburg, leading up to the bucolic grounds of

Rancho Sereno.

Ranch Sereno is owned by Mike and Lisa Maberry,

former Maverick Region members. They are very accommodating

hosts, and arrangements were made

with Dickey’s BBQ to provide a real Texas lunch for the

participants.

Photos by Bill Orr

In terms of

weather, we couldn’t

have wished for a

better day. Lounging

on the patio of

the ranch, eating

brisket with all the Ready to begin the drive

fixins, enjoying the

solitude of the grounds of the ranch, was almost Zenlike.

But that’s me, and I’m just sayin’ . . . although I’m

pretty sure other Mavs felt the same way.

Many thanks to Mike and Lisa Maberry for the excellent

accommodations, and to Dickey’s BBQ for the

lunch.

Kudos to the Tour leaders and sweeps: Bill Orr,

Mark Pitarresi, Greg Dranow, Karl Poulsen, and my

wife Jan. Big shout-outs also to all the other Mavericks

who contributed to the Tours program during the past

year: Jon Glover, John Harvey, Voy “Mitch” Mitchell,

Young Slack, Chris and Gabe Sorrells, Kurt Reuland,

and Kevin Creed.

“Happy trails to you, until we meet again . . . ”

Stay tuned for the 2017 PCA Tours schedule, and

hope to see you on a PCA Tour next year!

Kruder’s Cars & Conversations

By Bill Kruder, Region Advertising Chair

Photos courtesy of the Author

ell as luck would have

W

it I ran into these two

brothers about two years

ago at Cars & Coffee

(Plano) right after they purchased

their SC. Since then, we have had

the opportunity to talk over coffee

and donuts while hanging out with

our cars, either at Porsche Cars &

Coffee or some other impromptu

Saturday morning gathering. So

here is the next in my series of

“conversations” I would like to

share with you . . .

Jan Pieter (Pete) and Willem (Will)

de Waal, owners of a 1982 911SC

and 1989 928, members since 2014

Bill Kruder: So are you guys originally

from Dallas?

Will: Oh no we are from a very

small town in southern Virginia

right near the North Carolina border.

We didn’t move here ‘til about

1981. I was about ten I think.

Pete: We moved around a lot as

our dad was a Navy doctor. Heck,

we lived in I think two or three places

in Texas before we finally settled

here for good.

Will: I guess I’m almost a native;

I went to grammar school

and high school here. I graduated

from Hillcrest High

School and went on to SMU.

Matter of fact, I played football

there. We were the first

team to play after the death

penalty they had received.

BK: So how did the love of

cars start?

Pete: Well my dad was

kind of into them. He really

loved British racecars. One of

his favorite cars he had was a

1958 MGA.

BK: And do you remember it?

Pete: Oh no, this was way

12 December

before us. There’s a funny story

about that car; dad had it when he

was dating our mom. Well, in order

to take her out, he had to take a

chaperone with him. See, this was

in Holland (our parents are Dutch)

and that was the custom I guess. So

he sold the MGA so that he would

have a four door car that he could

take my mom and her mom on

dates. Go figure, right?

BK: So how did you guys get into

Porsches?

Will: Well I guess that goes back

to when I was like in sixth grade.

My mom would get D magazine and

there were these ads for Porsche

and I just marveled at them. So one

day my mom takes me and a friend

to Forest Lane Porsche and drops

us off, and we just hung out there

sitting in the cars.

Pete: For me it was more recent,

in 2013; I had watched an interview

of sorts about Magnus Walker

(www.MagnusWalker911.com)

on CarCast with Adam Carolla

(https://m.youtube.com/watch).

I thought “I’m going to paint the

Miata like his #277 that I had seen

in another show.” Well that lasted

Pete and Will de Waal “sharing” the SC

about ninety seconds, and I thought

these air-cooled cars are where it’s

at, and figured I better get in front

of this tidal wave before its too late.

BK: So how did you guys come to

share the ‘82 SC?

Pete: It really was something that

I decided to look into. I bought a

couple books to read up on them

to just better understand what they

were all about.

BK: So where did you find it?

Pete: I joined PCA as a “quest”

member so that I had access to the

site to look at cars. Guess I knew I

wanted an SC from what I had read

about their durability.

BK: And you found it there?

Pete: No, the funny thing is I

found it in Slipstream of all places.

I was standing in the Ace Hardware

and on the phone with Will and

told him about it. Will thought I

was kind of crazy that they were way

too much money. I told him the

amount and he said he wanted in

on the deal. So the deal was done

we had ourselves a car.

BK: Now how do two guys

share a car?

Will: I guess you would say

we have joint custody [laughing].

I live in Frisco and Pete

in Coppell and we just shuttle

it back and forth from

house to house. For a while

we would even meet at Cars

& Coffee and exchange keys

there. Pete has a 1990 Miata

that is kind of the shuttle car.

BK: Tell me about the car.

Pete: Well we bought it in

August of 2014. It’s a 1982

SC coupe in Pewter Metallic

over black that is pretty much

all stock; it has about 140,000

miles. What we liked about


the car is that it has always been in Texas; believe it

came to Dallas via El Paso.

BK: And Will not only do you share the SC, you have another

yourself now?

Will: I do. About a year ago, in a weak moment

[laughing], I bought a 1989 928 coupe; it’s Stone Gray

over black, has about 90K miles on it.

BK: I understand you guys have names for your cars?

Pete: Yes we do, the SC is Gitta (GIT-tah) which is

Dutch and short for Brigitte.

Will: And the 928 is Hildi (HIL-dah); another Dutch

name.

Once again

I’m amazed at

what you learn

about people

when we take the

time to be interested

enough to

listen. Two brothers,

a car, and one

cool story!

Annual Celebration: Founders’ Day Reboot

By Tracy Robertson, Region Social Co-Chair

Passion. Participation.

Charity. Creativity. Contribution.

History. Tradition.

We have much to celebrate

in the Maverick Region.

And we celebrated it all at the

NYLO Hotel in Las Colinas on Saturday,

November 5. As one of the

region’s great traditions, we get

together each year to commemorate

the founding of the Maverick

Region more than 50 years ago.

The event has some longstanding

customs and some newer activities

that have quickly become member

favorites.

The NYLO was a perfect venue,

with an industrial chic vibe that

allowed us to feel both casual and

festive – plus, it has a great parking

lot. So, of course, the first thing

on the agenda for the evening was

to line up our cars in the reserved

Porsche-only area, and take advantage

of the stunning autumn sunset

lighting for a quick photo session.

Then, inside to the party!

Thanks to our generous sponsor,

Autobahn Porsche, we had drinks,

some tasty hors d’oeuvres, and a

cocktail buffet including shrimp,

pasta, grilled vegetables, and an assortment

of desserts.

People’s Choice portion

of the contest allowed

us each to pick

our three favorites.

And then on to

shopping! The Silent

Auction was one of

the best in recent

years – with Porsche

Art, Apparel,

Collectibles, plus

Bose Speakers, a Microsoft

But who has time to eat? The

required everyone’s attention! We

have a great number of talented

photographers in the region, and

the entries in our third annual

Photo Contest did not disappoint.

Six categories, and thirty-seven

entries, made for an impressive

gallery. Who could possibly choose

Friendly up-bidding was fun and

easy for the competitive ones in

the room, and all proceeds benefit

contribute to their work on behalf

of women and children.

Our DJ Mr Diamond, mixed

up a special groove just for

us. Global Lounge meets

us couldn’t help but dance,

just a little.

And, since we were in the

dancing mood, we celebrated

the great volunteer spirit of

the region. President Jim Falgout

awarded John Hamilton,

favorite honor – The Selcer

Award, recognizing superior

performance and dedication

that we are already looking forward to next

Christmas at Hope

by Bill Middleton

Editor’s Note: In addition to the support

our club provides to the Huffaker Hughes

Hope House from our Annual Celebration

fund raising, we also are invited to join in

their holiday festivities!

Every year, the Maverick Region joins

with the Hope Shelter staff and clients

to celebrate Christmas out in Mineral

Wells. This celebration is to provide a

happy, fun Christmas for those clients

needing services of the Shelter during

the Holiday season. This is funded in

part by YOUR generous donations to

the Hope Shelter throughout the year.

This year, as a special addition, the

Hope Shelter is celebrating 10 years of

the new facility that the Maverick Region

so generously helped with, taking

it from just a few sketches and a dream

to a real brick and mortar building that

will serve this community for many

years to come. The actual opening and

dedication took place on Christmas Eve

in 2006, and the Christmas party was

held in the new building.

To help celebrate “A Decade of

Hope,” we’d like to invite any and all

interested Mavericks to make the trek

out to Mineral Wells on Saturday, December

17 to join in the festivities as we

share this most special of holidays with

our partners in Hope. You don’t need

to bring anything other than yourselves

and your best Holiday spirits – and we

all hope that you’ll find watching the

festivities brings added joy to your holidays

as you’ve brought to theirs with

your generosity.

Again, the date is Saturday, December

17. The place is the First Presbyterian

Church, 300 NW 4th Street, Mineral

Wells TX 76067. The festivities begin at

noon, and it’s right on an hour drive

from downtown Fort Worth, so plan

accordingly. If anyone would like to

caravan out from the Fort Worth area,

please get in touch with me at wrmiddleton@yahoo.com

and we can discuss

a meeting place and time.

See you there!!

Porsche Works of Art: Maverick Region 2016 Photo Contest

By George Luxbacher, Region Photo Contest Chair

orsche owners enjoy taking pictures of

P

Porsches almost (and I emphasis “almost”)

as much as driving them … and our annual

photo contest has become an eagerly

anticipated event! The contest was held this year in

conjunction with the Annual Celebration at NYLO

Hotel in Irving/Los Colinas on November 5th. Entries

were solicited starting in September and by the contest

deadline we had accepted 37 entries representing work

from 26 photographers (each entrant could submit up

to 2 photos); another 17 entries were rejected primarily

based on photo pixel size – we had a minimum requirement

to justify the not insignificant cost and time

requirements of printing, mounting and display.

We had a distinguished panel of judges, who took the

time to critically review each entry, develop a ranking

and provide detailed comments: our heartfelt thanks

to Charlie Davis, Bill Middleton and Mark Gluck for

this arduous task. All photos were printed on highquality

art photography paper and mounted on foam

core board display. I’m sure that all who attended the

Annual Celebration will agree – the 37 entries on display

were impressive and truly a “Porsche Work of Art”!

There were five (5) categories of photographs as well

as a Grand Prize winner. The categories, award-winning

photographers and their photograph titles were:

Porsche Portraits: Formal portraits of Porsche cars.

Jim Lanter, “When Bruce Says Stop”

Motorsports: Porsche cars in motion involved in driving

events.

Andrew Barber, “997 GTS – Circuit of the Americas”

People: Individuals at PCA events.

Peter Wen, “45-Year-Old Rookie”

Overall Grand Prize and Porsche Portraits Category

Jim Lantner, “When Bruce Says Stop”

Motorsports Category

Andrew Barber, “997 GTS - Circuit of the Americas”

People Category

Peter Wen, “45-Year-Old Rookie”

PCA Experience Category

Linda Bambina, “The Corkscrew to Mt. Rushmore”

The PCA Experience: Photographs that tell us what it

means to be a PCA member.

Linda Bambina, “The Corkscrew to Mt. Rushmore”

Artistic: Photographs manipulated for artistic purposes

by applying digital and/or special effects

Michael Baynton, “Barn Find”

Grand Prize: Jim Lanter, “When Bruce Says Stop”

Those attending the Annual Celebration could vote

for three photos for a People’s Choice Award. The winners

were:

People’s Choice Awards:

Jordan Cole, “Untitled”

Michael Baynton, “Barn Find”

Claudia Hermann, “A Circle of Porsches”

As the contest organizer for this year, I had the first

opportunity to look at all the entries, a task I thoroughly

enjoyed (this offset the disadvantage of being

unable to submit my own photos). Many of the entries

came with the story behind the photograph, adding another

interesting dimension to my task. Unfortunately,

those stories couldn’t go to the judges or the Annual

Celebration display as the risk of detracting from the

photographs; maybe next year we can find a creative

way to include them!

Thanks to all who participated by sending in entries

and the dedicated group of volunteers who made the

contest possible. Among the volunteers in addition to

the judges were Charlie Davis who advised me each

step of the way and did the printing, Dee Luxbacher

who assisted in the mounting and Tracy Robertson who

organized the display at the NYLO Hotel.

Rules for the next contest will go up on the Maverick

Region website in a month or so, including more information

on pixel count with the goal of no rejected entries.

Given the preponderance of cell phone entries

this year (the best camera is the one you have with

you!), we will be creating a separate class for those entries

and reducing the number of or modifying the

categories. Start thinking about your best shots now!

Petrified Porsches: 2nd Annual Halloween Rally

ore than 60 Porsche enthusiasts

from all over

M

the Metroplex met in

McKinney on October

29 for the annual Halloween Road

Rally, organized by Don Sebert and

George Luxbacher. Though the

warm sunny day was not characteristic

of cooler Halloween weather,

many showed up in costumes to

ward off evil spirits and celebrate

this traditional community-focused

celebration of fall. Creative costumes

included Friar Tuck, the

Red Baron, Daddy’s Little Monster,

a court jester, witches galore, and

Judge Roy Bean.

Clyde robbery was filmed in Pilot

Point, the rural field where ET visited

Texas, and the festival where

Gene Autrey’s ghost could be roaming

in Tioga. The sometimes tricky

route had some ralliers chasing

their tails through back roads and

over dams as they were on the lookout

for spooky spots, abandoned

alleys, and hippie ghosts.

Ralliers were rewarded for their

haunted hunting at their destination,

Fortunata Winery in Aubrey

(https://www.fortunatawinery.

com/). The shaded garden courtyard

was a perfect place to sit for a

Spell and have a Bite with friends,

while indulging in craft wines,

homemade brick oven pizzas, gourmet

cheeses, and cured meats.

Awards were given to the top

three finishers, as well as the DLBF

(Dead Last But Finished), who

should feel encouraged because

they have only one way to go in future

rallies . . . up!

The winners were:

First Place:

Driver Miriam Anderson and

navigator Tom Cundari

Second Place:

Driver BJ Harvey and navigator

John Harvey

Third Place:

Driver Lyssa Dursey and navigator

Josh Egly

(Tom and Jan Martin actually tied

for third, so the standings were determined

by the tiebreaker, elapsed mileage

The coveted DLBF (Dead Last But

Jose and Ivan Alvarado

Prizes were also awarded for

spooktacular costumes:

By Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

Photos courtesy of the Author

o far in 2016, forty Porsche drivers have

S

competed in the Autocross program. Ten

came to the tight Burleson Field site October

30 for the Halloween Costumes and

Carstumes event. The Ghostbusters tow car, race car,

and costumed team won the People’s Choice award.

Then an Autocross broke out!

Ten Porsches competed. The

Brian Harnish Boxster took top

Porsche PAX. Fred Stubbs’ Boxster

Spyder just beat Mike Syler’s

late model 911 by 0.075 seconds,

and Sigrid pushed the family 914

to within 0.126 of Mark in a very

close battle. Full results can be

found on the Autocross.com site.

The last event will be November

13 at the terrific Lone Star Park

site. It is a combined Scones and

Coffee event PCA has arranged

and the annual Guns and Hoses Charity event. Many

year-end awards will be determined at this last event.

Around the Bend...

By Jim Hirsch, Managing Editor

s we speed towards the end of 2016,

A

keep your eyes firmly on the road,

but remember to look ahead since

the racer’s credo always states that

your car will follow your eyes. Let me know if

that helps the next time you’re heading for an

off-road experience!

Many of our

members celebrate

the holidays or the

start of a new year

by considering

gifts to give others.

With that in mind,

I’m sure you are

proud of your Maverick

Region that

provides support

each year to two

charitable organizations:

Huffaker

Hughes Hope

House and the

Boot Campaign.

Please note this invitation

to attend the Hope Christmas Party.

I suppose, in this time of giving, you could also consider

buying yourself or your loved ones a new Porsche

as we reach the end of 2016! Of course that can mean

something other than the real vehicle: a Porsche book,

print, magazine subscription, Lego, Playmobil, Hot

Wheels, electric GT3, wooden first Porsche, etc.

In fact, let me give you a few ideas for your Porsche

shopping - that might keep me from purchasing too

many of these items!

For the art collectors

(I’m not counting Porsche

posters as art, even though

they are very nice!), Guy

Allen has just released a

new print featuring the

SWB 911. This is limited

to 200 prints, so you’ll have to act

quickly. You can find more info

on this one and other car prints

of his at http://guyallen.co.uk/

shop-cars.

If you’re looking for a different perspective on

the Porsche brand in a magazine

subscription, I encourage you to

consider GT Porsche from the U.K.

Not only do they typically get to

test models first on that side of the

pond, the British writing is always

fresh. You can find out more at

http://gtpurelyporsche.com/.

Of course, the number of toy Porsche models released

in the last year is amazing. Everything from a

wooden first Porsche (http://shop4.porsche.com/

usa/kids/toy/) to a first 911 from Playmobil (http://

www.playmobil.us/porsche-911-carrera-s/3911.html)

to a 1000+ piece model from Lego (https://shop.lego.

com/en-US/Porsche-911-GT3-RS-42056) can be yours

for great fun!

And yes, you could always visit our Maverick Region

PCA Store (http://mav.pca.org/store/) as well. With

our new logo now released, you’ll only be able to purchase

items with our original club logo until December

15. I guess the motto is to shop early and often!

Finally, as I’m writing this shortly before

Thanksgiving, in anticipation

of the final month of 2016, it’s

important that I thank the dozens

of members who have contributed

articles, photos, proof-reading,

and so much more to each issue

of Slipstream that lands in your

mailbox every month. You are all

appreciated more than you can

imagine and make our Maverick

Region members more informed

about, and invited to, our many

activities throughout the year.

See you in 2017!
