Grussen, Freund die Porsche!.


With the advent of March and Spring, the;Mave-rick Region moved

on to new and greener pastures. For those who have not as yet seen

our new home in the Ramad4 Inn, we'd like to relate that our new home

of Maverickdom is, in our way of thinking, improved over the old.

Spaciousness, 'courtesy and a prelf.nt decour prevail in abundance.

There is even enough room to move7about without fear of upsetting

something or someome.

Our first meeting in Grand Prairie was the occasion of a personal

greeting by Mr. Roy Hyde, President of the Grand Prairie Chamber

of Commerce. Mr. Hyde's gracious welcoming speech was accompanied by

the presentation to the Club on the behalf of the Ramada Inn of tro-

-..phies for the "surprise poker rally" which was held after the meeting.

Jim Tulloh expressed our thanks to Grand Prairie, the Ramada Inn and

Mr. Hyde

The "surprise poker rally," which was held after the regular

meeting by Activity Chairman Manson Mathis, turned out to be a real

ball; and a good time was had by all. The trophy for the shortest

mileage went to the thinking team of Don Muncy and Howell McCreary,

while Charlie Fern and Frau plied great skill in picking the best

poker hand for the second trophy.


The gymkhana held at Six Flags was a "jolly good show." Manson

Mathis departed slightly from the orthodox "kana" course and gave the

members a course they could really get their teeth into. With a little

forethought and a practice run or two, it made for an enjoyable afternoon

of skiliful driving. Trophies went out in the following manner:

Ladies 1 - Leona Riley

Normal 1 - Bob Jackson

2 - Jim Savage

3 - Tom Clayton

Super 1




Charlie Fern

Leonard Lacaze

We used this heading last month, and the overwhelming response

gives us cause to wonder if anyone receives a newsletter. We're still

open for offers.


Your editors would beg your indulgence while we bestow a laurel.

One of the biggest problems we face in getting the "straight scoop"

to you each month is the mechanical printing of the paper. We owe a

debt of gratitude to Rick Hurlock for a fine job of shouldering this

burdensome, behind-the-scene task,


Be there those among ye who would :acquire or depart from worldly

goods, we offer the service of this sheet in making public your wares

or needs. Send copy -inreadable, form please-"to the editors.

Manson Mathis has available a discount scheme on Becker Radio

equipment if any members are interested.

PCA Championship Gymkhana

Seminary South

SCCA Divisional Races

Green Valley

CTC Rally


April 12 is the date of our first endeavor to put on -a Championship

Gymkhana. The activities committee has burned much late, oil in

laying out and planning this event; however, a venture of this magnitude

cannot be adequately held with only the effort of a few. Each

member is urged .-- yea, solicited with gusto-- to aid' in the operation

of the event. Course Marshals, timers and general hard workers are,

in short supply and YOUR efforts would be welcomed.

Th- event is to be held, at Seminary South Shopping Center in

Fort Worth, with the first car out at 1:00 PM. Even if you are able

to resist the pitch for help, wetd like to see a crowd of spectators

-- so come along and watch the fun.
