Sprockets: Happy New Year 2018

By David Robertson, Region President

appy New Year to all of my fellow Maverick


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!

Also, as a reminder, our board meeting minutes are

now online at


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!
