As the saying goes, “I couldn’t have done it without

you.” That surely holds true with all of the events

we do, whether it’s driving tours and rallies, drivers’

education, tech sessions, or monthly dinners and coffee

socials. None of those events would be a success without

the teamwork of our club volunteers and advertising


To give our appreciation

for all of the hard work

throughout the year, we held

our First Annual Maverick

Partner Appreciation

Celebration. Thanks again to

one of our sponsors, Park Place

Porsche, for being gracious

enough to open up their Dallas

dealership for this first event,

which allowed our

Maverick Region

Board to play host

to a casual buffet

breakfast. We

had 50 attendees

from our group

of 73 volunteers

and 36 advertisers

join us Saturday,

September 15 for

a country style

breakfast which

included all the

trimmings, from

fresh fruit and eggs

to biscuits and gravy. All thanks to Low Country Cuisine

for providing the food, a Bubbly Bar of different flavored

Mimosas, and of course coffee and juices.

This was just a way for us to give a big Thank You

to our members who volunteer to be early and stay late

at our events to help setup, parking, and cleanup as well

as for all of the behind the scenes organization that goes

into coordinating each and every event.

All of our events have grown in size over the years,

so another big Thank You goes to our advertisers, who

have stepped up to sponsor our events or have donated

their venues and support. One such recognition goes to

Louden Motorcar Services for their continued advertising

support of a

in Slipstream

for 40 years

(look for it

Each of our




departed with a personalized Certificate of Appreciation

and a limited edition car window decal.

It cannot be said enough: Thank You to all for what

you do. If you’d like to assist in future events, please

reach out to our Volunteer or Advertising Chairs to find

out how you can help. As always, Driving Friendships

is Fueled by Volunteers.
