Slipstream - December 2017

The monthly newsletter of the Maverick Region of the Porsche Club of America

Sprockets: It’s Been

Sprockets: It’s Been Quite a Year By David Robertson, Region President his has been a great year! It has been so T much fun and such an honor to be the president of the Maverick Region PCA in 2017. I was introduced to the Maverick Region PCA by a friend of mine. At that time, I had no idea the club existed much less that here in December of 2017 I would be writing these words as the president. One of the greatest aspects of driving a Porsche for me has been as a member of this club! I have met so many interesting people, forged many friendships and have had many amazing experiences over these years. When I picked up my first Porsche I never imagined that I would actually get to drive it on a F1 track, run it in an autocross, meet with hundreds of other Porsche owners over coffee on Saturday mornings, and join hundreds of others for multiple day events around the country. There really is a lot to our slogan of “driving friendships”. Our club and our events continue to grow. The DE and Club Race crew keep raising the bar higher every year. The quality of our Maverick DE and Club Race events is amazing! This year we started a multi club partnership with Hill country and Lone Star PCA as well as the BMW club to host two DE weekends at COTA which have been a huge success. Add that to our yearly Club race and advanced DE at COTA and we have 3 events at one of the greatest racetracks in the world! The participation in our Tours is among the highest of any PCA region in the country and this year we were one of the first regions in the PCA to host a Porsche SUV event. New this year is Mavs and Mochas, a once per month Saturday morning coffee gathering that has been attracting over 100 cars on average and continues to grow. Our social events only keep getting better and older programs like tech sessions have been reintroduced successfully. The buzz and excitement I am getting from the Maverick Board Members indicate that we have a lot to look forward to! The Maverick Region is fueled by volunteers and we can find a spot for you! Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the club, meet other members and have a lot of fun. Please email volunteers@mavpca.org Oh, did I mention charity? One of our main charities, The Hope House, is having their annual Christmas party on December 16 at noon and all are welcome to attend. The party will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, 300 NW Fourth Avenue Mineral Wells TX, 76067. Please email hope@mavpca.org with any questions. As a reminder, our board meeting minutes are now online at http://mavpca.org/news/minutes/. SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor 1235 William D. Tate Ave Grapevine, TX 76051 817-329-6995 This has been a banner year for the Maverick Region PCA and the best is yet to come! MAV OF THE MONTH: Rob Adams If you attended the October Mavs & Mochas event held at Texas Harley-Davidson in Bedford, you might have met this month’s honoree for the first time. Furthermore, if you are a Porsche 968 owner and a Maverick member, you might have met this same person as a fellow 968 devotee virtually via email getting a personal invitation to join the October event. In every case, Rob Adams has demonstrated great organizational skills in contacting, coercing, and ultimately befriending a group of Mavericks who may have felt unloved with their relatively rare Porsche 968 models. Thanks to Rob and his newly energized group of 968 owners, we now have a very active Maverick Special Interest Group. Thank you Rob for becoming a very active member of the Maverick Region and for clearly demonstrating our Region motto of Driving Friendships. Enjoy your gift card to Silver Fox. 2 December
