Slipstream - January 2017

Newsletter of the Maverick Region of the Porsche Club of America

Sprockets: Looking

Sprockets: Looking Forward to a Great 2017 By David Robertson, Region President his is my first column as the new Maverick T Region President, and I look forward to a 2017 full of great events and lots of opportunities to get together with fellow members. The first thing I would like to do is thank all our volunteers, past and present, for all the work they do for our club. It would be impossible to put on the events we do without their tireless efforts. I also want to remind everyone that one big goal of the club is to contribute to our main charity, the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House. The Hope House is a Porsche style sprockets shelter for victims of domestic violence that has helped countless families over the years. We also have a new charity we are working with, which is the Boot Campaign, an organization that works with military families. We work with these organizations through financial contributions and volunteerism. There is more detailed information about our charities on our website at mav.pca.org. Speaking of our website: don’t forget that that is where you will find just about every detail about the club. The calendar of events, contact information for each activity chairperson, past issues of Slipstream, the history of the club . . . and this just scratches the surface. MAV.PCA.ORG is a great resource – check it out. You may not realize that the Maverick Region is also on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Flicker, and Yahoo Groups. The links to all these social media outlets are also on the website. I would like to invite everyone to the All Member Party on January 28 at the Hackberry Country Club in Irving. This is one of the biggest events we have all year. We introduce all the activity chairs and hear about the plans they have for the upcoming year. You can ask these folks anything about a driving or social event that you may be curious about. Plus, we always end up with a huge car show in the parking lot. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the club, meet great people, and see some fantastic Porsches! As you may know, we have recently adopted a new logo, which is kind of a big deal for the club. We have new nametags you can order through the PCA Store on mav.pca.org and they look great. I look forward to seeing everyone at the All Member Party! SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor 1235 William D.
