All Member Party

All Member Party 2018: Hackberry Creek Country Club his is your invitation to join other T Maverick Region members and attend the All Member Party at Hackberry Creek Country Club, at 1901 W. Royal Lane in Irving, on Saturday, January 27 from 2:00 to 4:30pm. It is a come-and-go affair, so stay for as much or as little time as you wish. The club provides light snacks and a cash bar for you to enjoy while you “meet and mingle” with other members. Having just celebrated our 55th Anniversary as a PCA Region in December with our Founders Day activities (see pages 16-20 for more details), the All Member Party provides each of you with a look ahead to events planned for 2018. Of course, the parking lot at Hackberry Creek literally turns into a Porsche car show with many of the models produced over the years in attendance. In fact, it’s a challenge to get the members inside the venue to listen to the program! The program consists of an opportunity for you to hear more about the wide variety of activities planned for the coming year. Whether you like to drive, polish, or socialize with your Porsche, our Maverick Region has numerous activities that will pique your interest and get you involved. Please plan to join us and find out for yourself how the Maverick Region has been “Driving Friendships” since 1962. 14 January
