It was a great year for the Maverick Region in 2018
and we have even more to look forward to in 2019!
To finish out 2018, we set a new record at
our Founders’ Day celebration, with almost 300
members in attendance! The new Park Place
Grapevine venue was impressive, and there was
a great historical display of Porsches from our
members. It was a lot of fun and the company was
great, but what I am proudest of is the donation
of $20,000 that the Maverick Region made to
the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House with funds
generated from the event. One hundred percent of
the proceeds from the online auction were donated,
and our members were also very generous with
their donations during registration and with the
Walmart gift cards that were brought to the event.
The Huffaker-Hughes Hope House is a home
for victims of domestic violence and has been a
Maverick Region-supported charity since 1993.
Founders’ Day, our last event of the year, was
a celebration of the club and its members, but I
could also feel a palpable excitement for where we
are heading in 2019.
We have a great year in store, as events are
getting planned that will make everyone want to
get out and see what all of the buzz is about.
You will see events within events where members
will have the chance to experience other aspects of
the club they may not be familiar with. We will
also be setting up more opportunities for 4-door
Porsches to experience a race track or even leave
the road behind and test the four-wheel drive
capabilities of Porsche SUVs.
Of course there will be social events and more
casual driving events such as Tours and Rallies
that will be better than ever. Our Tech Sessions
and Concours programs have also become very
popular over the last year and will have even more
events available to enjoy.
With all of this activity we need more volunteers
than ever! The best way to get involved with the club
and meet new exciting people that are as passionate
as you are is to volunteer. There is something
for everyone in the Maverick Region and it is
all fueled by volunteers. Please reach out to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will find you a spot.
I am looking forward to a safe and fun year,
and am very honored to be the President of the
Maverick Region for 2019.
SPROCKETS: The Year Ahead
by David Robertson, Region President
MAVS OF THE MONTH:
Don Sebert and George Luxbacher,
Rally Co- Chairs
Have you been to one of
the Maverick Region Rallies?
A rally is a fun driving event
where teamwork is essential
to finding clues along a specific
route. Many times, neither
the route nor the clues are
exactly straightforward, and
that is where the teamwork
with a friend or significant
other in the passenger seat
comes into play.
Don and George work
hard to make our Rallies safe
and fun for members. These
events take a lot of planning
and driving the route again
and again, making sure that mileage is accurate
and that the clues make sense in most cases. They
always come up with great themes and fun but
challenging instructions. Thank you Don and
George for all of the time you put in to making
our Rally program such a success!

twist! Thanks to our sponsor Autobahn, this year’s

Center is the destination and venue for our second
event of the morning: the All Member Party! What
awaits you there is sure to please! The Carriage House

acres of lush landscaping, and of course our Porsches.

a deliciously prepared country breakfast by Low

Mary Bar, and of course great friends. What can you
expect besides the warm food and spirits? Meet your

An All Member Morning
A Note from the Drivers’ Education Chair
by TJ Kroehle, Region Drivers’ Education Chair
We would like to announce our DE event dates for 2019:
• February 23-24: Motorsport Ranch (MSR) on the 3.1-mi road course.
• April 27-28: Motorsport Ranch (MSR) on the 3.1-mi road course.
• June 1 - Car Control Clinic at MSR
• June 2 - DE Solo - warm up to COTA
• June 8-9: Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, TX (Schnell Fest).
• September 14-15: the new EAGLES CANYON RACEWAY 2.6-mi road course.
• September 21-22: Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, TX (Schnell Fest).
• October 19-20: Eagles Canyon Raceway 2.6-mi road course.
• November 9-10: a SOLO DE event in conjunction with the PCA Club Race.
Please mark these dates on your calendar.
Porsche’s marketing campaigns for 2019 are “Direction
Future” and “Performance, electrified.” Porsche has been
long known as a leader in technology and innovation. This
also constitutes constant evolution.
Our region’s DE program in 2018 also
started to evolve. We implemented new
concepts to our DE experience, all while
maintaining our tradition of Safety First.
We started with enhanced passing for advanced run
groups. We also started a Fast, Faster, and Fastest grid
lineup for our advanced run groups. We opened up MSR’s
1.3 road course for additional run time, available to most
run groups throughout the weekend. These features will
remain in place for 2019.
We introduced a new novice run group, the Car Control
Clinic (CCC). This was requested by our local Porsche
dealerships to provide a gentler introduction to the Porsche
experience. This can provide their clients an opportunity
to learn the capabilities of their Porsche in a controlled
environment. Graduates of the CCC will, at a minimum, be
in a better position to handle their vehicle in an emergency.
We received excellent feedback from the participants. We
believe the CCC can be a gateway to our DE and Autocross
programs. Fifty percent of the first CCC graduates said
they would attend a future DE or Autocross program. We
are looking for dates for this program in 2019
We are also looking for more single day SOLO DE events
for 2019. We are searching for a date in March or May for
a single day SOLO DE. We may pick a weekday, scheduling
it for a late afternoon run and socializer to follow, similar
to what we did in July 2018.
As we grow and change, we have some changes we need to share.
Chris Sorrells has joined our team as the DE Marketing
Chair. Chris and his wife Gabe joined the Porsche Club
six years ago after buying their first Porsche. Together they
came out and watched a DE event. They decided that it
looked like a lot of fun.
Chris attended the Ron Fellows Performance Driving
School in Las Vegas to learn how to drive on the track
safely. Initially, Gabe was driving the Porsche and Chris
was driving a Corvette at the DEs. After a couple of events
driving the Corvette, Chris decided to part ways with it,
allowing him to also buy a Porsche. Chris has attended
most of our DEs over the past six years.
Gabe and Chris have been married for 40 years. Chris
has just retired from the construction and development
business. They have two dogs and three Porsches. Gabe
and Chris can also be seen at most of the PCA social events.
Chris spends his spare time either at the track or hunting
Please welcome Chris as the Marketing Chair!
We are chartered with continuing the evolution of our
DE Program. Our mantra is “Safety First.”
We appreciate everyone’s participation in the program
and, we hope to earn your future support.
Maverick Region PCA DE Chair
PCA Tours: FM 4 Recap
by Brant Worrell, Tours Co-Chair
I have never thought of myself as a morning person,
but on the morning of November 4, I couldn’t wait to
get up and get my day going. You see, today was the
day on which the Maverick Region would celebrate
the life of a former member, Voy Mitchell (or just
Mitch to all his friends), by traveling Farm-to-Market
Road 4 from Jacksboro down to Granbury, Mitch’s
My relationship with Mitch was all too brief, but
I would best describe him as a warm and gentle soul
with a lead foot. It didn’t hurt that his lead foot was
exercised on the petal of a 2015 Turbo S Cabriolet!
Accompanying me this day would be Mitch’s wife,
Marie, Mitch’s bride of 51 years. I would get to pick
her up in Celina, drive her to the starting location in
Jacksboro, and reminisce about Mitch as we drove
down FM 4 on our way to Granbury. All told, we
would be in the car for almost 200 miles, remembering
Mitch and their lives with each other. As much as it is
about our cars, it’s also about connecting with others,
and ultimately isn’t that what it’s really about -- making
personal connections with one another?
We couldn’t have asked for nicer driving weather on
the day of the drive. As we got under way, the skies
were clear and the temperatures in the high fifties.
One hundred thirty people in eighty-two cars would
participate. Towns along the way included Grayford,
Palo Pinto, Santo, and Lipan. No issues with the local
authorities were reported, which was not an easy thing
for me to accomplish in a ‘99 Turbo with a 918 Spyder
in your rear-view mirror for 85 miles!
If you haven’t had a chance to drive this route and
are looking for an excuse to drive your Porsche this
winter, this is your drive. I recommend starting your
morning at the Village Kitchen restaurant for breakfast
in Jacksboro (as some of us did before our drive) and
ending in Granbury for some lunch at the local German
eatery, Ketzler’s Schnitzel Haus And Biergarten, but
not before some window shopping around Granbury’s
charming down town square.
The drive down FM 4 concluded a very busy tour
season for the Maverick club. In total, we had six drives
in 2018! Mark Pitarresi and I have already begun
planning for 2019 and look forward to seeing everyone
on our first drive: February 17, which will be the All
Member Party Tour drive down FM 455. This tour will
start just west of Van Alstyne and end a little north of
Gunter, both of which are in southern Grayson County.
To top it off, the drive ends at the annual Maverick All

Mavs & Mochas: Founders’ Day Edition
It was a dark and stormy night –
the night before, that is -- but Saturday
morning was glorious, as evidenced
by a more than awesome turnout.
The official count was over 200 cars,
with about every vintage and color
of Porsche lined up and polished to a
The Mavs & Mochas gathering
kicked off the day-long trilogy
of Maverick Region’s birthday
celebration events with a bang. Couple
this with the exceptional participation
of Nordstrom knocking it out
of the park with their staff,
led by Vanessa Hernandez, and it
just couldn’t have been any better.
Non-stop coffee, fixins, and pastries
kept the PCA faithful happy and full.
Plus the fact that we had the run of
the store to shop and browse was an
exceptional privilege offered to the
The People’s Choice Awards
judging garnered a broad crowd
participation spurring all kinds of
conversation about this and that. The
trivia being bantered about covered
all aspects of the varied Porsche cars
in attendance, which is what it’s all
about. So much fun! The outcome
of the judging was announced at the
final leg of this day at the dinner and
gathering at Porsche Grapevine, but
that’s another story!!
Then at the end the M&M it
was off to line up for the Toy Drive!
Eighty or so cars headed off to start
the second leg of the Maverick
celebration. Cars were stuffed with
toys to the roof or roll bar. What a
great Porsche-filled day it was going
to be!! – Pat Carmichael

Founders’ Day Toy Drive
We couldn’t have
started out with a more
beautiful morning for our
annual toy drive. I can’t
stress enough that the
weather was phenomenal
for December. This made
it perfect for driving with
our tops off and windows
down. The drive was full
of colors as we wound
and twisted our way
north through beautiful
trees celebrating the fall
colors we have here in
North Texas. With all the
lights and traffic, some of
the cars were split up, but
all tried to stay together. It
wasn’t uncommon in our
group to see a handmade
teddy bear riding with his
head out a side window
saying “hi” to other
cars. We also had a giant
stuffed puppy dog that
kept popping up through
a sunroof saying “hi” to
passersby. It was a very
fun and spirited drive.
Our Maverick Region
group donated $650 in
assorted gift cards (plus
four gift cards with no
amount written on them;
we’ve not yet had time
to look them up on the
various store websites)
as well as approximately
1,000 toys. The toys,
stuffed animals, coats,
batteries, diapers, sporting
goods, and other items
filled approximately half
of a 12-foot enclosed
trailer. It was a very
successful year! To all that
joined in, and all of our
club, we are so grateful
for continuing to support

Founders’ Day 2018: Board Election and Shoffit Award Presentation
by Carey Spreen, Region Secretary
photos by Wyatt Ramsey
As stipulated in the Maverick Region Bylaws (http://
mav.pca.org/about/bylaws.asp), Article IX, the election
of the 2019 Region officers took place at our annual
Founders’ Day celebration on December 1, 2018. All
four 2018 officers agreed to run for office in 2019, and
all four were re-elected, as follows:
• President: David Robertson
• Vice President: Jim Falgout
• Treasurer: Deborah Fike
• Secretary: Carey Spreen
The Board appreciates your participation in the
voting process, and looks forward to serving you, the
Maverick Region, and the Porsche Club of America in
2019! We also hope that you can take part in some of
our wide-ranging events this year!
Also, you probably know that our long-standing
annual award acknowledging outstanding contributions
to Maverick Region, known as the Richard F. Selcer
Memorial Award (http://mav.pca.org/about/awards/
selcer.asp), was retired in 2017 and replaced by the
James Shoffit Maverick of the Year award. This
award is presented by the current Region President
to the person or persons whose participation made
a significant positive difference to the Region in the
past year. Region President David Robertson read the
list of recipients from 1976 (Charlie Davis) through
2016 (John Hamilton) to remind us of the history of
this award and acknowledge those recipients, many of
whom were present at the evening’s celebration.
This year, David presented this award to someone
who has spent a lot of time and made some great strides
in improving the Region’s social events: none other
than our Social Chair, Debi Kruder.
Congratulations, Debi, for your continued
efforts in bringing new ideas and concepts
to our ever-growing social activities!

Being a first-timer to a
Founders’ Day Banquet
PCA dinner event, I really
didn’t know what to expect. The only information my
husband (the Porsche enthusiast) gave me was to wear
a nice dress. I was quite anxious pulling up to the event,
mostly because my husband had lied to me, and no
other woman was wearing a dress! So after downing a
little liquid courage and finding another “wife” friend
who had been coaxed into wearing a dress, I relaxed
some. And I had a fantastic time!
Every person in attendance, regardless of age and
gender, was very welcoming, interesting, and really
down to earth. The event itself was well organized.
Between the amazing location, cars on display, the photo
slideshow, delicious food, and the amazing company, I
had a wonderful time.
I do feel the Porsche fans in this club are really what
make it such an amazing group to be part of and enjoy.
I am excited to attend future events with PCA (not
wearing a dress)!
P.S. - Apologies that my husband totally cut into the
food line; he needed me to soak up some of the alcohol!
See y’all next time (if he lets me come after this)!

Six-plus years as
Founders’ Day Banquet
members and we were
Maverick Region Founders’ Day first-timers at the
evening party at Porsche Grapevine.
Having received a gracious invitation from Bill
Kruder to represent the G-series 911 for the outside
display, I did my afternoon obsessive/compulsive
cleaning thing with the car, and missed every puddle
between Fort Worth and Grapevine.
Arriving before the party started, there was massive
hustle-bustle, with Social Chair Debi Kruder showing
why she would be recognized that evening as the 2018
James Shoffit Maverick of the Year. Club members set
up bid tables, dozens of chairs, and decorations, laying
out Porsche-shaped cookies on each table.
Having spent over 20 year in British car clubs, I
wondered what Porsche people would be like. We know
now that they are the best. This was such a perfect
venue for meeting members and spouses outside of
Mavs & Mochas events.
We spent a long time at dinner time with Hill
Country Rallye buddies Mark and Monda Hanna,
talking about Porsches (of course), Porsche driver
Patrick Long (Monda must be his fan club president),
and interesting careers (I can say no more, really).
It was such a great evening, and of course, a great
venue, with only one disappointment. I thought
that all of the Porsches on display in the showroom
with bows on them were my Christmas presents.

People’s Choice Car Show Founder’s Day 2018
by Mike Mahoney, Region Concours Chair
This year’s record-breaking Founders’ Day started
out chilly with a throng of people and Porsches for
our second annual Porsche Promenade People’s Choice
Car Show. The Mavs & Mochas faithful enjoyed the
NorthPark Center venue in uptown while perusing
the nearly 200 precious Porsches and voting for their
favorites. Winners were awarded at the Founders’ Day
evening event at the grand Porsche Grapevine dealership.

Maverick Marktpreis: Sweet Spot
by Peter Wen
Didn’t get what you wished for this Christmas? End of year
bonus burning a hole in your pocket? Well, Marktpreis is here
to help! We have a list of Porsche good-buys to get you past the
This list came from a seminar titled “Sweet Spots: Porsches to
Buy on a Sensible Budget”. It was hosted by Hagerty Insurance
at the Porsche Parade last summer. The star-studded panel
discussed sub $50k Porsches to buy now for enjoyment and for
The panelists advised to always buy the best conditioned car you
can afford and to seek out unique or even weird colors. They
also suggested over time, Porsche Cabriolet models will catch up
or outperform their Coupe stablemates. Whoa!
Winter months may be a perfect time to shop for your next
Porsche. A couple of years ago the author bought a Cabriolet
over Thanksgiving, from Buffalo, NY! Talk about negotiation
power! Your dream car is out there waiting to be found. Good

Coffee, Cars & Conversation
by Bill Kruder
photos provided by Raj Gill and Michael Durovick
So this month’s member took
a little longer to get to know; as
a matter of fact, it almost didn’t
happen. He had just bought his car
and heard that on the third Saturday
of every month a group would meet
at Mayo Performance, but he wasn’t
sure what time, so he assumed,
knowing how car gatherings go, they
start early. So he takes off for Mayo
and arrives there about 8 am to find
not a soul there, the place is locked
up tight. He introduces himself to
the first person who shows up, not
realizing it is Ed Mayo himself.
Well since then, his 993 has
appeared at many of our different
coffee meets around DFW and I
got to know a very interesting and
ambitious young man.
So here is the next in my series
of “conversations” I would like to
share with you:
Raj Gill, Member since 2017,
Owner 1996 Polar Silver 993 Turbo
Bill Kruder: So I know you are not
originally from here. Where again
are you from?
Raj Gill: I was born and raised in
Leicester, England, famous for
winning the Premier League title in
2016 with 5000:1 odds.
BK: What brought you here?
RG: Well, I was in the alcohol
beverage business selling and
delivering to pubs. It was physically
tough, but I enjoyed it for the most
part. Then in 2010, Nindi and I
got married and we went on our
honeymoon to Fiji, which included a
six-day stop in Southern California.
Nindi planned the whole trip, which
included our first NFL game and a
NASCAR race, along with anything
else that would be the American
experience. It was a packed six
days. Once we returned we were
back to our daily grind. Then in
2011, Nindi said, “what if we work
together in childcare?” I was all in!
I didn’t even have to think about it.
Still on our honeymoon period, we
thought of the amazing time we had
in the US!
BK: So how did you and Nindi meet?
RG: It’s funny. We both grew up in
Leicester, same age, and went to the
same University, but never knew
each other. As it turned out, I had
met her brother at University but he
never told me he had a sister until
after he got married, when he said
he had someone I should meet. I was
unable to attend his wedding, as my
sister’s wedding was the same day.
BK: Well how did you end up in
Texas of all places?
RG: We did our homework; we had
three or four things we wanted.
First, we wanted warmth and
sunshine - remember where we are
from (laughing). Then it was a good
quality of life, good cost of living,
and lastly business-friendly. All
things pointed to Houston, Texas.
BK: Why DFW then?
RG: I had been to Florida
and the humidly was crazy
and Houston is known for
theirs, so it was Dallas.
It took us the better part
of a year to decide. After
a couple visits here, we
moved in 2012. We moved
a lot over the next five
years. We went from
Lewisville to Midlothian,
where our childcare is, to
Frisco, then Euless, finally
settling in Grapevine in
BK: Wow, Frisco, that’s a
RG: That it was, trust me!
After the commute and
working together all day, Nindi and
I had nothing else to say once we
got home (laughing). Grapevine is
perfect, as it’s central, which has
helped us grow our business into
BK: Let’s talk cars. What was your first car?
RG: My first car was my mum’s VW Polo GTI. I drove it
two weeks before crashing it into someone’s garden wall.
After that I had a Citroen Saxo with a 1100cc motor. It
had the power of a hair dryer (laughing); guess it kept
me out of trouble though.
BK: So why the interest in Porsche?
RG: Growing up in the ‘80s in Leicester, we would never
see a 911, or many other exotics.
In the 1985 movie “Commando” there’s bad guy getting
away in a yellow 911, but he rolls it onto its side. Arnold
Schwarzenegger kills the bad guy, and rolls the car back
over, and drives off in it! It was awesome! And then Bad
Boys movie followed in the ‘90s with the 964. I would
say Hollywood started my interest in Porsches.
BK: What was your first real exposure to the brand?
RG: My father had been driving a 1992 Lotus Excel
2+2. I feel blessed he thought of my sister and me when
buying the 4-seater Excel, as his preferred choice was
the 2-seater Esprit. As a family, we went all over the
UK in it. I can’t describe how nice it was going out in
a sports car as a family. But it wasn’t reliable! So in
2001, I walked into my first Porsche dealership with
my father, in Nottingham. Once there, we found out
that the 996 turbo had a 2-3 year wait. Dad wasn’t so
pleased with the attitude of this dealer, so we went to
another dealer in Northampton a week later to hear the
same thing. However this dealer recommended he look
at a new car in the works, the 996 C4S. He could get it
within 18 months.
RG: It arrived in 2003, a silver on red C4S. And he still
drives it today!
BK: Not many know that Porsche was not the first
sports car you bought once you settled here.
RG: I wanted to experience American muscle, so in
late 2015 I purchased a 2009 Corvette. What’s more
American than that (laughing)?
BK: Lets talk about this 993. How did this come about?
RG: It certainly wasn’t planned. Things were sailing
along smoothly for us, and then we hit a bump in
the road. Guess it kind of woke me up and just out
of nowhere I thought ” I’m getting a Porsche.” I knew
I wanted a 993. It was my childhood dream. So last
year I started looking. I called about three other cars
and wouldn’t you know it, they were sold. Then this
993 Turbo came up out in Denver, so I flew out to see
it. I think I drove it all of a mile and bought it on the
spot. We are the fourth owner. It had stayed in Denver;
it even had the original window sticker from Prestige
Porsche in Lakewood.
BK: What? Prestige Porsche was Hagestad Porsche-Audi.
This is such a small world! I know Bob and bought his 356
and also bought a 914 that was originally delivered at his
dealership. Talk about six degrees of Kevin Bacon (laughing).
Once again, when you are out at events, take the time
to say hello to someone new. Make it a challenge to
meet someone you don’t know, it’s too easy to stay in
your close circle of friends. After all, it’s about . . .
Contact me to learn how you can get
the most out of retirement.

Introducing Our New Drivers’ Education
Chief Driving Instructor
by TJ Kroehle, Region Drivers’ Education Chair
We have some exciting news for the Maverick Region
DE Program. We would like to formally introduce Craig
Janssen as the new Chief Driving Instructor (CDI).
Craig has had a fascination for fast cars and motorbikes
since childhood. He was given a motor bike at 10, learned
to drive a car at 11, and proceeded to terrify his family
as he raced around their 4-acre small holding on his
motorbike and the family car.
He attended his first Maverick DE in 2003, and soon
began to spend enormous amounts of time at the track
in DEs and in racing his Spec Miata. Craig has served on
the Maverick DE Instructor/Coaching team in multiple
roles since 2010. He started working with the Green/Blue
run groups, and also coached as an Advanced Instructor
(AI) in the Yellow/White run groups. Recently he has been
a leader of the Coach training program and teacher of
various DE classrooms.
Many of you may remember Craig teaching in your
classroom, as he is easily identified by a strong South African
accent. Craig’s strength is in his ability to communicate a
complicated subject in simple terms that we can all relate
too. He has the respect of his fellow instructors and DE
Not only is Craig a
talented PCA coach, he
has also been an active
racer in both sprint and
enduro racing programs
around the country,
with well over 100 race
starts to his name.
Craig has been
married to his wife
Angie for 32 years, and
they have a daughter
Brooke. He has lived
in the DFW area with
his family since the
early 1990s, where he
leads an engineering
Please welcome Craig to our program!
Autocross Series: 2018 Wrap-Up and 2019 Preview
by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair
photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images
At Autocross event 10, the final event of the season,
119 drivers participated in the Guns and Hoses
Fundraising event. Money raised goes to families of area
police and firefighters lost in the line of duty. A total
of $5,000 was raised and matched by our autocross
partner, Equipe Rapide, and 100% of the winning
drivers turned their event payouts over to Guns and
Hoses as well, for another $435.
Representing the police and firefighters
were three two-driver teams driving
police-spec sedans for the Guns and Hoses
top honors. The Mesquite Police were first
quick in their Dodge Charger Pursuit car.
Be careful driving fast in Mesquite!
This was a worthy cause! We plan to participate in
again in 2019.
Overall, in 2018, 301 different participants entered
events a total of 912 times and made over 7,000 official
timed runs. Of all these, 38 Porsche drivers entered a
total of 118 times, and made 708 official timed runs. At
each event, the fastest lap time of six runs determines
the finishing order. The best seven out of ten events are
scored for year-end Championship results. Trophies
will be presented at the annual party in January.
There were a lot of PCA activities this weekend so
we had fewer Porsches than normal. There was one
year-end championship battle still to be determined in
class P1. Carolle Liu’s best seven events just eked out
Amir El-Baghdady by one point this year. Amir had a
couple mechanical issues this season, but promised to
make more events in 2019 to improve his point total.
Carolle and Amir will both get year-end trophies. New
driver Mas Watamabe brought his Boxster S and took
first in class over Igor Tulandin (Cayenne GTS) and
Carolle at this event. He could upset everyone in this
class in 2019.
Class P4 ended up with five drivers in trophy
positions: Mark Schnoerr, Sigrid Schnoerr, Ed Mayo,
Carey Spreen, and Sue Crimm, in first through fifth,
respectively. These drivers fought it out at most every
event in 2018.
Doug Edney scared other contenders out of class P7
to earn first in class also.
For 2019, there are a few Porsche Class re-structures
to end up with eight classes. New is a special class to
encourage the vintage/historic four-cylinder Porsches
(356s and 912s) to participate in class P0 with the
four-door Porsches. The other class designations have
changed, but again pit the right cars in the right classes
for another exciting season. The season schedule
is posted in this issue, and there will be at least one
autocross school as well. Come out and play with us or
stop by to see what all the excitement is about.

It’s Our Business to Do Pleasure. TM
Oversteer: Letter from the Editor
by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor
First things first this month, I need to correct an error.
Last month I failed to correctly give credit to Tom Martin.
Tom wrote the article summarizing the PCA tours trip to
MSR. Accept my apology and thank you Tom for the great
articles that you put together for the readers of Slipstream.
Happy 2019! Wow, what a year 2018 was. What a
great club to be a part of. If you haven’t been a part of
other car clubs, or even part of a PCA club in another
region, then you don’t know just how good you have it.
We have so many passionate volunteers and even more
passionate members, that make the events really special.
Once a month you can show up and expect to see all
manner of Porsche beauty at Mavs&Mochas. Or you can
sign up for one of the tours or rallies and clear out the
cobwebs. And these events aren’t just a few guys standing
around a parking lot. We usually have over 100 cars and
guys and gals visiting and sharing stories. It’s pretty great.
The parties and social events also can’t be beat. Lavendou
is back on the schedule and if you haven’t been a part of
that event, consider making it a resolution to be there.
If you’re like me and look at New Years resolutions to
be a trap perpetrated by gym owners and well meaning
mothers, you might be interested in finding out it was
actually the Babylonians some 4000 years ago that we
have to thank. They promised their gods to pay their
debts and return anything that was borrowed in return for
favor in the new year. Throughout the years the Romans
and early Christians adopted the practice as a chance to
reflect and resolve to do better in the coming year.
Research shows that while 45 percent of
americans say that they make new years
resolutions, only 8 percent report being
successful in keeping them. I have good
news though, the Babylonian calendar
began in March, so you can reassess and
start over and be well within the statute
Might I humbly suggest considering getting more
involved in the club, events or even volunteering in 2019.
You’ll meet some great people and get that sense of
satisfaction that can only come from helping others.
Wink, wink. But most importantly, I hope that you get
out and Enjoy the drive!
