Sprockets: You Never

Sprockets: You Never Know Who You Might Meet at a Maverick Event By David Robertson, Region President s mentioned in the past, I am always amazed A at the different walks of life that people in our club hail from. Club members are here from the four corners of the earth and everywhere in between. It’s always fun to discover when a member I have known for years has an interesting background, or I learn something I never knew about them while we are casually chatting at a Maverick event. Passion and enthusiasm are infectious, and I really enjoy talking to all of our members who are passionate about anything they do, whether it is the cars that they love, their chosen career path, or a cause that they support. Artists, teachers, doctors, lawyers, business owners, and even a few oil barons are all within our ranks, and we all love to get together and talk about our main shared interest which is our cars! With this shared passion of ours, we have the opportunity to meet people that can give us insight into a world with which we may not be so familiar. As an example, there seems to be a big connection with Porsches and airplane pilots. Perhaps the thrill of flying a fighter jet, commanding an airline aircraft, or flying famous people around the globe translates well to the thrill of driving a Porsche. I will never fully understand the connection, as my eyesight kept me from getting too far with this pursuit in my youth, but it is a lot of fun to hear these folks discuss their exploits when we are together at a Maverick event. In this club I have met so many interesting people from a very diverse set of backgrounds, and I am quite a newcomer compared to most. As a newbie and a Porsche neophyte, I struck up a conversation with a gentleman at one of our events who turned out to be Peter Schutz, the Porsche CEO who saved the 911! (Yes, I was and I am still quite embarrassed that I didn’t know who he was at the time). At the next Maverick event just ask and listen, you will be amazed at what interesting things you will discover about our members! SAUL FRAIRE, Chef-Proprietor 1235 William D. Tate Ave Grapevine, TX 76051 817-329-6995 944. As a fan of the 944, Ginger volunteered to organize the November 2017 Mavs & Mochas 944 35th anniversary special event, and through her efforts we had 30 beautiful 944s in the showcase. Ginger is a great example of the great things that happen through our volunteers here in the Maverick Region PCA. MAV OF THE MONTH: Ginger Heuerman Our Mav of the Month is Ginger Heuerman. Ginger participated in our Halloween Rally back in 2016 and was motivated to create a quilt as a gift to the club. The quilt took Ginger 10 months to craft, and it turned out to be such a work of art that a decision was made to raffle it off for charity. The raffle was a huge success, and generated almost $1700, which was donated to the Patriot Paws charity. While Ginger was creating the quilt, she and her husband began attending the monthly Mavs & Mochas events in their highly modified 2 February
