Sprockets: New Additions

Sprockets: New Additions By David Robertson, Region President ast month I gave an update of some of the L items that we have worked on so far this year. We are very proud of what has been accomplished to date, but we still have a lot of work to do! This is an exciting time to be a Maverick! We are adding new events, trying new things, testing ideas, and constantly evaluating what our members are asking us for. To further these efforts I have created a new board position of Marketing Chair and have appointed Bill Orr, our resident marketing guru, to chair that position. Bill has done an unbelievable job of creating ways to market our club to new and existing members. With a more official role, Bill has some ideas to implement that will take our marketing program to the next level. One of our initiatives for the remainder of 2017 and into 2018 is to create a great Concours d’Elegance program. I have appointed Mike Mahoney to the position of Concours Chair and he will be in charge of this undertaking. Mike has some great ideas and lots of enthusiasm for this role. Our Concours events will range from more traditional judging programs to less formal events like People’s Choice. Mike will not be alone in his new role. He is working with many of our Maverick members that have been our club experts in Concours historically, both on the local and national level, and going back almost as long as our region has been in existence. As always, volunteers will be needed! We are getting some good ideas for ways we can effectively distribute both our dollars and our human capital to charities we support. One charity that we have supported over the years is the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House. We support the Hope Shelter through cash donations, but they also have a need for specific items on an as needed basis such as toiletries, towels, bedsheets, etc. You will see collection requests for some of these specific items from time to time, coinciding with some of our events. We are all very fortunate to be members of this club and charity is one area where we can all participate! This is the 55th year for the Maverick Region and we are laying the groundwork to move successfully into the future. Attracting new members is very important, but participation and inclusion is what keeps everyone in the club. All of our members have a place in the Maverick Region PCA. Whether you a 50+ year member and will never touch a PDK, or you are a lucky owner of a Porsche in your 20s looking forward to an all-electric 911, you are a big part of our club! SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor 1235 William D. Tate Ave Grapevine, TX 76051 817-329-6995 The Maverick Region runs on your input. If you have an idea to improve our club, or know of an area that you feel needs my attention, do not keep it to yourself! Email me at MAVS OF THE MONTH: Debi Gibson & Bill Kruder This month I would like to recognize Co-Mavs of the Month Debi Gibson and Bill Kruder. Bill and Debi have jumped in with both feet to make the Maverick Region a notch better in many areas that many of our members may not even realize. Bill has been the key figure in the huge success of Mavs and Mochas and Debi is always creating a new tweak each time to make each of the events better than the last one. Bill is also consistently working behind the scenes with our advertisers and has established relationships with the local dealerships greatly improving those partnerships. Debi has also made contributions to Slipstream and is helping to plan our upcoming Founders’ Day celebration. Congratulations Debi and Bill, thanks for everything you do, and enjoy your Silver Fox gift certificate! 2 October
