Motoring Mavs at Mayo:

Motoring Mavs at Mayo: Saturday Morning With Porsches By Bill Kruder, Region Coffee Meets Co-Chair Photo by Jim Hirsch ith the success of Mavs & Mochas (M & M) W -- sponsored by our friends at Park Place Porsche – we are now averaging nearly 120 cars a month, and are excited to announce another new monthly event for you to attend. Starting in March we will kick off our newest event: Motoring Mavs at Mayo, sponsored by Mayo Performance. This event will be held every third Saturday of the month, and starting time will be 9:11 am at Mayo Performance in Euless. Now you might wonder what the difference is between M & M and Motoring Mavs at Mayo. Well, M & M is held the second Saturday of the month and varies on location, typically moving East and West in the Metroplex. Motoring Mavs at Mayo will be the third Saturday of the month, and will always be at the garage. As Ed says, “we see this event focused around shop talk.” More information can be found at http:// mav.pca.org/go/mmm. In addition, an online store has been created specifically to allow you to purchase merchandise with the MMaM logo. You can browse and order those items at www.zazzle.com/motoring_mavs. So there you have it. If you have been disappointed in not being able to attend Mavs & Mochas, you now have another option to get your coffee fix and enjoy even more great Porsches. We look forward to seeing you there, and thank Mayo Performance for their partnership in this new monthly event!
