Sprockets: Happy New

Sprockets: Happy New Year 2018 By David Robertson, Region President appy New Year to all of my fellow Maverick H Region PCA members! I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I have been travelling in the Northeast a bit over the last month and I am reminded that we have quite a good season for driving our Porsches here in DFW, since there is always at least a chance that we could have topdown weather in January. I can tell you from personal experience after living in Boston for many years that we are very lucky to have a 12 month driving season and you should take advantage of that! We are not wasting any time in getting the event calendar up and running. The first Mavs & Mochas of the year will be held on Saturday, January 13 at Southlake Town Square. Each of these gatherings features a different Porsche model, and this month we are celebrating the 996. If you haven’t been to a Mavs & Mochas, you are in for a treat. There is always a wide variety of Porsches to see, ranging across many models and years, and it is a wonderful and casual event that allows you to get out on a Saturday morning and start your weekend off right! On Saturday, January 27 there will be two events, starting with a Tech Session in the morning. A Tech Session is an educational event, typically hosted by a local business, where we gather to learn something new about our Porsches. On the 27th we will be at Park Place Porsche to learn about the lubrication requirements on our cars and SUVs. I always learn something at these meetings that I haven’t seen on YouTube! On the afternoon of the On January 27th we will have the annual All Member Party. This event has grown to one of the biggest events of the year and is not to be missed. 27th we will have the annual All Member Party. This event has grown to one of the biggest events of the year and is not to be missed. This party includes a car show with some very special Porsches, and it is a great way for all of our members to learn something new about the club. There are more details to be found on page 14 in this issue so I will not mention more, except to say that there is no football on TV that weekend! Make a New Year’s resolution to get to know some of your fellow Maverick members this year and participate in some of our events. There is something for everyone, and you probably already realize that your resolution of going to the fitness center on Saturday mornings is never going to happen!

Tate Ave Grapevine, TX 76051 817-329-6995 Also, as a reminder, our board meeting minutes are now online at MAV OF THE MONTH: Debi Gibson Debi began contributing her time and creative energy to the Mavs & Mochas events a while back with some tweaks and ideas that really helped turn it into the great meet up that you see today. Since then, she has started getting more involved with our Social events and co-organized the Founders Day celebration last month that was one of our best ever. From the small details like the clever table decorations to the monumental task of arranging a venue and setting up catering for 200 people, Debi made it look easy. She always has a smile and makes everyone feel welcomed at our events. Debi will be taking over the Social Chair position in February and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with! 2 January
