SPROCKETS: What Do You Think of the Taycan?

by David Robertson, Region President

It’s hard to believe that it is already October! We have

seen a record number of events this year including Drivers’

Education events, Tours, Rallies, Autocrosses, Tech Sessions,

Mavs & Mochas, Lunches, Happy Hours, and charity and

social events. Throughout the next few months there is

much more to come. There is something going on just about

every weekend, so take a look at the calendar and come out

to enjoy. There is really something for everyone!

None of these events would be possible without our

volunteers. Our volunteers come in many forms, from the

chairpersons organizing the events themselves to those who

show up and pitch in where needed. Our club simply would

not exist without the many volunteers who give their time

and energy to make sure everything goes smoothly. When

you attend one of these events or even read this magazine,

please say thank you to the volunteers who get it all done

behind the scenes.

In upcoming events I would like to hear from

everyone about what they think of the new Porsche

Taycan. I have seen prototypes but can’t wait to see

the real thing. This is a huge step for Porsche that

I don’t think we can even compare to any major

change that has come before, such as the 928 front

engine or the first water-cooled 911. I would argue

it can’t even be compared to the hybrid models of

the past few years. Are we witnessing the future of

the sports car?

From what I have read, the new 911 (992) is designed to

allow for an electric motor as well. My biggest pleasure in

being a member of the Maverick Region is speaking with all

of you about these topics. Come out and join us; I promise

that you will meet an expert on just about any question you

have, or at least someone who sounds convincing!

MAV OF THE MONTH:

Craig Janssen

As the DE Chief Driving Coach, Craig devours any book, video, or article that

can help him drive faster and teach others to do the same. He is an Engineer by trade

and is very analytical in his approach to making sure that the DE program is safe,

fun and welcoming to all participants. Behind the scenes Craig also works countless

hours to organize the operations of these events as only someone with a true passion

for driving and sharing his knowledge with others can do.

As a kid Craig participated in motocross, off road motorcycle enduros, threewheeler

flat track racing, and surf racing a Hobie, but after a trip to Skip Barber

Racing school in 2003 he says that the real game was on!

Craig currently enjoys his Macan S when he’s not on the track. Thank you, Craig,

for your passion and dedication for making the Maverick DE program a great part

of the Maverick Region!

Getting to Know the Ladies of the PCA

by Joann Talty

photos by Michael Durovick

Reaching out to some of the

Maverick ladies for this feature

opened my eyes, not only to the

female car owners in the group, but

to volunteers who’ve given countless

hours and have been club members

for a very long time.

Fourteen women shared fun stories, proud

moments, or great memories with me. Nearly

every woman in this piece is in this club for the

friendships, and most of us are eager to learn more

about our cars and what we can do with them.

While some women became Porsche

owners through a significant other

and park his and hers in their garages,

I learned others fell in love with the

brand early on. I was surprised to find

that four of these ladies currently own

more than one Porsche, some have a

long history of Porsche ownership,

and one woman’s household happens

to hold 12 (admittedly owned by her

husband, but still quite impressive.)

We ladies like naming our vehicles,

too, with “Baby” and “Beast” used

more than once.

Whichever models sit in our

garages, I hope all of the female owners

here agree with me when I say it’s good

to be us! Ladies and gentlemen, let me

tell you about a few of the Ladies of

the Maverick Region PCA.

Social Chair for monthly happy

hours, Claudia Reynolds, drives a

2014 Rhodium Silver metallic Boxster

S named “Bonita” (aka the Little

Devil Car when

she displays her

track number

666.) She claims

joining the PCA

this past March

is one of the best

decisions she’s

ever made. Claudia grew up drag

racing in American muscle cars, but

now enjoys her German sports car

at the DE events, PCA rallies, and

Sports Car Club of America (SCCA)

rallies. Claudia shared a favorite

Porsche moment from high school.

Her best friend drove an orange 914

with holes in the floor. Every time her

friend turned left the horn sounded. A

GT3RS is on her wish list and maybe

a radar detector for those tickets she

keeps collecting

Jennifer Parma joined the PCA

in 2018. She purchased “Indie,” her

2007 Midnight Blue Boxster, on a

whim. Both the aggressive body style

and the fact that it is a convertible

drew her in, but she admits once she

drove it, she was hooked. Jennifer

appreciates viewing and learning

Jennifer Parma

about the cars at various events and

hopes to be more involved with club

operations. Next up, perhaps? Look

for her at the track.

You may have met Olga Taylor

in recent years, volunteering at signup

tables with a friendly smile as she

disperses helpful instructions. At age

11, her Dad’s friend gave her a ride

home in his 911 and she was drawn

in by the style, sound, and interior

smell. In 1979, she purchased her

first Porsche: a black 1974 914 1.8L.

She spent two years with the PCA

in Oregon during the 1980s and has

been a Maverick since 2017. She owns

“Baby,” a 1980 Nutmeg Metallic 911

SC Targa she purchased from the

6 October


Hermosa Beach dealership owned

by race car driver, car collector, and

racing team owner Vasek Polak in

1984. Her most recent acquisition is

“Buddy,”a black 2009 911 Carrera.

Olga enjoys both the helpful and

friendly people of the PCA, noting

the generous and loving technical

guidance.

Carolle Liu

Carolle Liu loves COCO, her

white 2005 Boxster, for its perfect

balance on an autocross track. A club

member for three years, she drives

her first Porsche top-down as often as

possible. You might catch her loading

groceries into her bonnet. We know

not to offer Carolle help if we see her,

but for the frequent offers of assistance

she receives, she’s been known to ask

a few guys to return her shopping cart

for her. Despite not hitting a cone all

season, she was awarded with the

“Cone Killer” award at a PCA party.

Besides Mavs & Mochas and ER

Autocross events, Carolle too, hopes

to hit the track for a DE event.

A former Boxster owner, Beckie

Gomer currently drives “Pepper,” a

white 2014 Cayenne, a birthday gift

from her husband, Tom. Together,

Olga Taylor

they have owned five

Porsches, but she

credits meeting other

women in the club as

the reason she wanted

her own. A member of

the club since 2013, she

values the friendships

she’s made and the

knowledge

gained about

other models. Mavs &

Mochas, tours, and happy

hours are some of her

favorite events.

Our next member takes

her vehicle off-roading and

overlanding. In October

2017, she led a group along

the trails at Northwest

OHV Park in Bridgeport,

maneuvering over large boulders

and through crevices to show

drivers what their Porsches can

do. More recently, she’s planning

an overland route near Corsicana,

concluding at Angelita Vineyard and

Winery. Six-year Maverick Sue Crimm

Beckie Gomer

just sold her red 1987 924S, drives a

2009 Meteor Grey Cayenne, and is

Sue Crimm

looking for a Lava Orange Cayman.

Sue enjoys autocross, tours, rallies,

and going to Parade.

Cyndee Ebeling

If you see a 2016 Carmine Red 911

Carrera GTS Cabriolet about town,

on the tours, or on the track driving

with the White group,

her name is “Rebecca,”

named after a redheaded

ghost. The

owner is seven-year

Maverick, Cyndee

Ebeling, who has loved

Porsches since her

teens. She’s owned a

2008 Cayman S and a

2013 911 Carrera S,

loving the speed, the

sound, and unique styling. Several

times a year, she and her friends

plan travels in their 911s featuring

beautiful scenery, great food, and

the curviest routes they can find.

Has Kristyn Starr been your coach

yet at a DE event? She’s been a club

member since 2012 and owns her

dream car: a 2006 Seal Grey Carrera

S named “Baby.” While high school

friends hung posters of heart-throb

boy bands in their rooms, Kristyn

7


hung a heart-throb car in hers. Encouraged by both parents

to “buy the car” when she began looking, she went for it,

figuring she’d get it out of her system after a few years and

move on. “There is no moving on,” says Kristyn. In a 2013

DE drivers’ meeting, she won the Toyo Tires Rookie of the

Year Award. She found this special since she learned to drive

a manual in her Porsche. How many people get to do that?

Robyn Howard

Our current swap meet chair, Robyn Howard, has been a

Maverick member for 15 years. After her husband purchased

a 911, she wanted one too. She’s owned a 1987 Guards Red

924S and a 2003 Midnight Metallic Boxster. She currently

owns “My Baby,” a 1986 Guards Red 944; “Molly,” a

black 2002 Boxster S; and

her “Beast,” a red 2001 996.

Robyn plans to drive in a

DE event someday when she

isn’t working them. She has

been a corner, tower, and grid

worker at many events and is

currently occupying the black

flag post at our DEs.

Twenty-two year member

and multiple-award winner

Wendy Shoffit has held

countless positions with our

club and has participated in all events but Concours. She

has attended 19 Parades, auto-crossed, time-trialed, and

instructed at the autocross schools. She is the current Club

Race registrar and has done that for 18 years. Wendy has

also served as the club Secretary, Slipstream Editor, Social

Chair, registrar for DEs and autocross/time trials, and was

the PCA National Newsletter chair for five years. A former

Boxster and Cayenne owner, she now shuffles between

“Ares,” her white 2016 Cayman GT4, and Artemis, the

white 2016 Macan Turbo along with weekends in her 911

racecar. When asked what else she’d like to try or drive,

club racing and a Taycan just might be in Wendy’s future.

Fran Ussery has been a Maverick since 1983 and has held

various positions within the club including Region President,

Slipstream Editor, and Slipstream Publisher. She also served

on the National

Parade Competition

Fran Ussery

Rules committee for

12 years. She used

to own a white 1966

911 and a red 1986

whale-tail Targa,

but currently juggles

between “Ayisha,”

a silver 1973 914

2.0,and “Jezabel,” her

Speed Yellow 2000

Boxster S. Loving the

top-down freedom of

a cabriolet, Fran shared a favorite Porsche moment with me

from the fall of 2000 when she took a week-long Colorado

road trip in her Boxster. Besides photographing her new car

with beautiful mountains and golden Aspens, her bucket list

included driving only state or county roads numbered with

three digits or more, visiting small towns, eating at local

diners, meeting someone new at each stop, drinking coffee

atop a mountain, and executing road curves at twice the

posted limit.

Lastly, I reached out to

Wendy Shoffit

Linda Bambina, Teri Davis,

and Jan Michel. Longtime

Mavericks must surely know

them since the three have

been with the club since the

‘70s and ‘80s. They’ve

driven competitively, held

multiple offices, and won

numerous awards. These

three are the pioneer women

of our group, along with

Fran, who got involved,

provided a woman’s voice to the group, and made life-long

friendships. If you’d like to be more involved with the

Mavericks, there are a variety of opportunities. Pull any one

of us aside, and we’ll talk you into it.

Maverick Partner Appreciation: 2019

by Landon Stogner

photos by Bill Middleton

There are sayings such as “It takes a village,” “It was a

team effort,” or “I couldn’t have done it without you.” All of

these hold true when it comes to putting on all of the events

we have yearly as a Maverick Region.

On Saturday, August 24, we held our second annual

Maverick Partner Appreciation, this year taking it back to

premium thank you prizes next year, please reach out to me

expressing your interest in volunteering to help out at one or

more of our many events. Please visit our volunteer page and

be sure to register so we can reach out to you as one of our

helping hands. http://mav.pca.org/volunteer/

German roots: “Maverick

Partner Wertschätzung.”

We hold this free event each

year with special invitation

to our Club Volunteers and

Advertising Partners as a

way of giving thanks for

supporting the Maverick

Region. This year, the event

was sponsored by Neiman

Marcus Willow Bend in

Plano. We were greeted with

breakfast tacos, a Mimosa

& Bloody Mary Bar, and of

course hot coffee. Neiman

Marcus opened their store

early for nearly 70 Club

Volunteers and Advertising

Partners, allowing us to

mingle through the store,

driving friendships, as we

enjoyed the food and drinks

provided. And did we say

raffles? Our new advertiser

Neiman Marcus is always

generous, with Kristen Wen

winning lunch for four at

their restaurant Mariposa, and Chris Flaugh, our Web Store

Chair, winning a premier brand speaker. As a parting gift

of thanks from the Maverick Region, each Volunteer and/

or Partner was given a logo coffee mug, a micro-fiber towel

with the Maverick logo, and an oh so popular special event

window decal.

There are so many ways to get involved with our club, so

In Memoriam: Warren Bischoff

by Tom Martin, as told by Brenda Bischoff

The Maverick Region mourns the loss of one of its dear

members, Warren Bischoff. Warren passed away unexpectedly of

natural causes earlier this year at his home in Highland Village.

He is survived by his wife Brenda, daughter Lauren, and brother

Scott and his family.

Those who knew Warren remember him as a very sociable

fellow; always greeting fellow Mavericks with a big hug and a

smile at Monthly Socials. His was a commanding presence; a

handsome, larger than life figure. If life were simply an episode

of the old TV show Bonanza, then Warren would be Ben

Cartwright, the patriarch of the family.

A true renaissance man, Warren’s love affair with life manifested

itself through his passion for cars, airplanes, history, art, books,

film, travel, music, comedy, games and life’s simple pleasures.

Warren harbored a long-time admiration for everything

Porsche, fueled by his fascination with motor racing, and the

heroes who piloted their Porsches to victory.

Upon enlisting in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam conflict,

Warren served as a helicopter mechanic while stationed in

Korea. Stateside after his two year stint, he began his career with

American Airlines, where he achieved the lofty status of master

aircraft mechanic. Brenda and Warren married in 1975 and settled

in Chicago, before relocating to the DFW Metroplex 29 years ago.

In 2017, Warren joined an elite group of talented, seasoned

individuals when he was presented with the Charles Taylor Master

Mechanic Award, presented by

the FAA only to those aircraft

master mechanics who have

successfully served for 50 years.

Being a car guy, Warren’s

experience as a master

mechanic served him well,

especially in the area of car

restoration. He restored two

Porsches, as well as some good old American iron from the

Golden Age, and also a Ford Mustang that he lovingly restored

with his daughter Lauren.

When Lauren was in high school, the two embarked on a father/

daughter project to restore a 1966 Ford Mustang. The experience

was a bonding one, and needless to say, the already beautiful Lauren

attracted the attention of many of her male classmates when the

project was completed and parked in the school lot.

Brenda and Warren loved to travel together; trips to the

Continent were followed by pilgrimages to Porsche Parade and

Rennsport, where Warren reveled in the sights and sounds of

Porsche’s racing machines. One year, he managed to wrangle the

autographs of ALL the Porsche racing drivers present.

As a gentleman, a husband and a father, and also a member

of the Maverick Region, Warren will be sorely missed by all who

were blessed to know him.

Maverick Drivers’ Education Series: Fall Events

by Renee Hayden, Region DE Chair

The fall season of High Performance

Drivers’ Education (HPDE) events

kicks off the weekend of September

14-15 at Eagles Canyon Raceway

in Decatur, TX. It’s our first trip to

Eagles Canyon since the ownership of

the track changed, and the track has

undergone extensive rebuilding. The

totally new asphalt is nothing short

of amazing. The pavement at Eagles

Canyon is as smooth and fast as the

asphalt at Circuit of the Americas

when it was new. The sight lines and

safety are much improved because

the hills that made for so many blind

turns have been moved back and the

track widened. If you haven’t been to

Eagles Canyon in a while, you will

recognize almost all of the track, but

there are many changes that you’ve

just got to see - and more importantly

- DRIVE!

If you missed signing up for the

September event, we missed you

too. The good news is that we have

another event at Eagles Canyon the

weekend of October 19-20. You

will find information and a link to

registration at http://mav.pca.org/

Events/DE/. Registration is open

NOW. Don’t miss out!

The final HPDE event of the

season will find us at MotorSport

Ranch in Cresson, TX the weekend

of November 9-10. Registration

for the November event will

open on October 9.

Maverick Region PCA HPDE

events are open to everyone age 18

and above, driving any car. You bring

your car and your enthusiasm to have

fun, be safe, learn, and make friends.

We provide certified PCA coaches

in your car, and present training in

classroom sessions. Our events are

extremely popular, an outstanding

value, and sell out quickly.

In addition to all the above, for

our advanced run groups (Yellow

and White), we now offer a new

advanced coaching program, called

Coach for the Day, tailored to the

specific interests of the advanced

participant. This new program

provides the option of selecting one

of our Advanced Coaches to work

with you for the entire weekend or a

portion of the weekend. Prior to the

event, you work with your selected

Advanced Coach to develop a

list of skills and goals you want

to work on during the weekend.

This program will help you make

significant progress in your driving.

Best of all, this program is free!

Come check us out!

Backpack Run: Murray Kustom Rods 2019

by Paul Moseley

photos by Paul Moseley and Dave Spencer

It would make a great movie: When Car Worlds

Collide (or, how a bunch of Porsche people ended up

hanging at one of the best hotrod shops in the country).

Cruising Instagram at midnight is a wonderful thing,

there’s no telling what’s gonna pop up, but a mid-July

post from Heath Murray, owner of Murray Kustom

Rods in Fort Worth, caught my eye:

“If you bring us a backpack, or about $20 bucks worth

of school supplies, we will gladly exchange you a t-shirt

of any size/color/design for this backpack or school

supplies.”

I “liked”

the post and

reached out to

my partner in

crime, Dave

Spencer, for

help. Not

wanting to

surprise a total

stranger by

just showing up, we reached out to Heath and made a

visit to the shop, mentioning we’d like to bring a bunch

of Porsches to mingle with the American iron, if he’d

have us.

Heath was fired up about the possibilities and began

to reach out to other car groups. The end result of our

August 17th gathering, the FWISD AVID effort, which

helps 4,000 disadvantaged students, received over 200

backpacks plus supplies from Heath Murray, the car

community and the Maverick Region’s generosity!

Maverick Marktpreis: Cayman 987

by Peter Wen

“The thing about the Cayman is - gosh, I hope

they don’t hate me for saying this - I think it’s

just about better than any 911. The Cayman is

one of the best-handling cars I’ve ever driven,”

said Randy Pobst in MotorTrend magazine.

The Cayman won the magazine’s

inaugural Best Driver’s Car in 2009 by

besting the likes of Audi R8, Corvette

ZR-1, CTS-V, and MX-5 Miata.

Yeah, the Cayman is that good!

First launched in 2006, the

Cayman is a coupé derived from

Porsche’s secondgeneration

Boxster. The

two models are virtually

identical except for the

fixed top. Cayman’s

hard top, along with an

extra crossbeam behind

the seats, made it twice as stiff and

10 pounds lighter compared to the

Boxster. With its supercar-like midengine

placement, perfect balance

was achieved. While Porsche made

sure the Cayman can never truly

challenge the flagship 911, its

executives freely admit that the midengine

layout of the Cayman is the

dynamically superior concept.

Upon introduction, the Cayman

won “Best in Show” at the

prestigious 2005 Frankfurt

International Motor Show. Awards

and accolades soon followed

throughout 987’s seven-year

production run. Today, clean, lowmileage

examples can be found for

less than $30,000. Just like Evander

Holyfield, pound for pound, the

Cayman is the Real Deal!

Excellence’s magazine’s Porsche Buyer’s Guide offered these Cayman price ranges:

’07-’08 $19k-$25k

’06-’08 S $20k-$30k

’09-’12 $25k-$35k

’09-’12 S $33k-$40k

’12 R $55k-$65k

Fun fact: The name Cayman came from the caiman, a member of

the alligator family. To celebrate its launch, Porsche adopted four

caimans at Stuttgart's Wilhelma Zoo!

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder

photos provided by author

Well, talk about a chance meeting!

A few weeks ago I was working on

putting a group of cars together

for the Third Annual Park Place

Luxury & Supercar Showcase. The

one elusive car was a 924 - I know,

right? For some reason, rarely do we

have any show up at our monthly

Mavs & Mochas. So, I reached out

to our Membership Chair Jim Hirsch

and asked him to pull the file on 924

owners. Jim sends me a handful, but

says there is this Guards Red 924

Turbo that would be nice, as you don’t

find that many. So I send an

email to the owner and tell him

what we need and to call me.

Well within five minutes I get

a call back and this guy is over

the moon that we would want

his car. We spoke for about

10 minutes, during which he

said he would be out at the

upcoming Mavs & Mochas at

Highland Park Village. Sure

enough, that morning, along

with nearly 200 other Porsches

comes in the lone 924.

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations” I

would like to share with you:

George Snowflack, enthusiast since 2005,

Owner, ‘76 914 2.0, 82 924 Turbo, ‘88 924S,

and 2019 911T

Bill Kruder: So where are you two from?

George Snowflack: I’m a New Jersey

guy; I grew up in Lake Hopatcong

in Morris County not far from

Morristown, about 60 minutes

northwest of Manhattan.

BK: And where did you go to college?

GS: Wagner College in Staten Island,

about 60 minutes southeast of Lake

Hopatcong; I graduated in 2005 with

a degree in International Business and

Finance.

BK: Did you stay near home after

graduating?

GS: Oh no, that wasn’t necessarily the

plan, but I couldn’t have moved much

further from home. I took a job in

San Francisco and got involved with

start-up software companies.

BK: So how did you end up here?

GS: After spending about five years in

SF, my company presented me with

an opportunity in Dallas, so I made

the move and landed in the Midway

Hollow neighborhood around

Northwest Highway and Midway.

George and Beth Snowflack

BK: I understand you are married?

How did you meet?

GS: Yes, married to Beth for three

years now. It’s kind of funny. I was

hosting a customer dinner at Bob’s

Steakhouse. Beth caught my eye from

across the room - she just had this

gorgeous smile - so I walked over by

her (I had some “liquid” courage)

and introduced myself to

her and her mom who were

enjoying an after-dinner

drink. As it turned out, she

had just moved to Dallas

the day before! She was

opening up a new retail

store at Shops @ Legacy. As

they say the rest is history.

We now have two kids:

Ella, who is 19 months, and

Ava, who is two weeks old.

BK: Let’s talk cars now. What was

your first car?

GS: It was red 1989 Toyota Supra

followed by a VW Scirocco and a GTI.

BK: Where does your car passion

come from?

GS: My entire family but mostly my

dad; he always had this love of all

things cars and motorcycles. As a kid

he would take me to the New York

International Auto Show at Javits

Center. He really wasn’t a German

car guy but just loved to work

on and restore things. Nothing

crazy; his projects were all about

being kept original, reliable, and

functional. Except the El Camino

(laughter); we spent a lot of time

working on my 87 El Camino:

black with a 454 and a 3-speed.

The thing has about 500 hp. It’s

a beast.

BK: Ok let’s talk Porsches now.

What was your first one?

GS: That would be my ‘76 914

2.0; I bought it in 2005. When

I was living in SF, my neighbor

owned it; He had bought it brand

new, and the car was solid. This was

just another project I volunteered

my dad to help me with (laughing). I

kept it all original except the addition

of Koni coilovers and some sticky

tires. We’d drive it up and down the

California coast on Hwy 1; actually

20 October


my best memory in that car was our scuba trip. We loaded

up the frunk with our scuba tanks and flippers and made a

bunch of dives through the kelp beds of Monterey Bay.

BK: When did you acquire the 924s?

GS: Actually not that long ago. I bought the Turbo in 2017

and the S in 2018. The cars are so much fun in a similar way

that my 914 is fun, but they also share a lot of DNA with the

Scirocco that I drove as a kid. That has to be one of the things

that attracted me to the 924s.

BK: Tell me about the 2019. Did you buy it local?

GS: Man, I love this new 911 T that I ordered from Porsche

of Ocala, which isn’t far from Tampa. I could have shipped

it to Dallas, but what fun is that, right?! I asked my dad if

he’d be interested in the 1,200-mile drive to Dallas and he

agreed without hesitation. We planned out the perfect breakin

drive, about 1,200 miles and 16 hours of driving with one

overnight stay in Gulf Shores, AL. What’s so cool about the

car is that it’s rather plain to the eye, and powered by the base

Carrera 3.0 engine, but Porsche did something special with

the T. They put it on a diet (the lightest 991 by about 60 lbs)

by removing the rear seats and all of the sound deadening

material throughout the car, and by stealing parts that are

only available in the higher-end GT car lineup: carbon fiber

buckets, lightweight glass, ceramic breaks, and a close-ratio

7-speed manual transmission only available for this car.

BK: So where do you keep this collection of cars?

GS: I bought a garage at Garages of Texas - the Lakeview location

near Love Field. I keep the cars on the first floor and converted

the mezzanine into my office. We’ve hosted a few Garages and

Gearheads events there. Look for the 924 and come say hello.

Well there you have it: another what-if. Don’t miss out on

those around you. Driving Friendships is what it really is

all about.

Prolific Parade at Boca Raton

by Wendy Shoffit

James and I have now been to 19 Porsche Parades.

We started going in 2000 to Sacramento, CA, and

immediately fell in love with it. We have only missed

one since (Portland 2006) when our schedules just

wouldn’t allow it. Our daughter Jasmine started going

with us a year after our first one, and has now attended

18 – and she’s only 22! There have been some fantastic

locations and some that weren’t quite as well-liked.

This year was at the Boca Raton Resort & Club (a

Waldorf Astoria Resort) in southern Florida. Talk about

beautiful! This place was amazing. The rooms were less

expensive than normal thanks to the group rates PCA

National negotiates. Everything else was not cheap, but

it’s what was mostly expected. I still opted out of the

$15 Toblerone from the mini bar in the room!

This was a great Parade for Maverick Region. At

the Concours Banquet we were awarded Region of

the Year for 2018! This is an amazing honor to be

considered the best region out of 145 regions across

the US and Canada. We had a good sized group in

attendance to accept the honor.

James Shoffit, PCA President - Tom Gorsuch, Linda and Alan Bambina

and Wendy accepting the Membership Growth award

Later in the week we received another big award for

the Region with the largest actual membership growth.

We increased our membership last year by 179 members.

No other region was even close.

The awards didn’t stop there. Jim Hirsch and Kurt

Scaggs won first place in Class VI in the Newsletter

Contest for Slipstream as well as Best Newsletter Cover!

Not to be outdone, Bill Orr won BEST Overall Website! Is

it any wonder why we are the top region??? Fantastic job!

photos provided by Linda Bambina

Parade isn’t just about national awards. There are four

major competitive events (Concours, Rally, Autocross,

and Tech Quiz) and several other supporting ones. While

this year there were no Mavericks in the Concours, we

performed well in the Autocross. Fran Ussery won second

place in the S05 class in her Boxster S. Mark Steele took

first in S11 in his 911 C4S. Ed Mayo and Julia Underwood

both took first place in their P06 (men’s and women’s)

classes in Ed’s ’72 911S. Pam Stubbs took first place in the

Novice Class. Lastly, I also won first place in the P17 class

in my Macan Turbo. It was a hot event, but a fun course.

Not many Mavericks entered the TSD Rally, but Fran

and Carl Ussery placed fifth in the Unequipped Class. The

Briggs family was strong in the Art Show, with Heather

winning first place in classic color photography and Reagan

taking first place in the Young Artist category. Brayden

Paes took second place in Young Artist. Jasmine Shoffit

won second place in Computer Generated Art. Bruce

Hollander won second place in Sculpture. Lastly, the Briggs

kids excelled

in the the RC

competition, with

Reagan taking

first in the age

8-9 group in

both On-Road

and Off-Road.

Thomas also

took first in on

and off in his age

12-13 class.

For those

who don’t feel

like competing,

Parade has much

more to offer

for attendees.

Tours have

become extremely

popular. This

year’s offerings

included an

Airboat Tour of

the Everglades, an

off-road SUV tour,

Kennedy Space

Center, dinner

Top: Mavericks stick together, even in Florida

Bottom: James showing off his Pink Pig Club

Race shirt in the special “Pig Pen” area

26 October


on a Riverboat, a visit to the Collier Collection, and many more. There’s just

something for everyone. Kids are never bored at Parade with activities every day.

They’re entertained with craft days, mini-concours and “anycross” competitions,

RC cars, and the like.

The Goodie Store is also strong during this week with Parade, PCA, and

Porsche merchandise. You want to buy it?

They’ve got it! The hospitality area is always a

nice cool place to sit and socialize while enjoying

complimentary snacks. Vendors are around with

goodies to give out and advice/information for

those looking for it. Knowledge seekers need

look no further than the Tech Tactics, an all-day

educational seminar series towards the end of the

week. Fitness buffs can compete in the 5K Run/

Walk or Golf tournament.

Add to this the FIVE available banquet dinners

with fabulous food and door prizes, plus a

Volunteer Worker Party (for those who work two

or more shifts) where they give away multiple sets

of tires - what more could you possibly want in a

week’s vacation? Hopefully you will join us next

year in Palm Springs, CA, June 21-27, 2020, or

the following year in French Lick, IN, July 11-17,

2021. Congratulations again to the Region and

all the Award Winners. This was a year for the

record books for sure.

How I came to love Porsches will either tell you how

old or how young I am. Remember those Scholastic Book

Fairs that were held in your elementary school libraries?

When I was in the first grade, my father bought me a

book, simply titled Super Cars.

That book contained pages of

sports cars with their 0-60

times, engine specifications,

power output, and general

information. On the cover of

this book was none other than

the 993 Turbo.

I would spend hours

reading this book over and

over again. The one car I fell

in love with however, was the

911. I would draw it over

and over again and fantasize about driving one. When

one passed on the road, I would shout out to all the

passengers that there was a 911 in our proximity. I told

myself that one my life goals would be to own a 911.

This dream lived on even in my young adult years. In

class I would sometimes get on my laptop and browse

build threads on Rennlist and Pelican and just appreciate

the Porsche community, while also thinking about what

I would do differently if such a machine would ever

come into my possession.

Over time, the line that

separated dream from reality

started to fade, and I began

The Search. Although it

was the 993 that captured

my heart, after years of

researching more about 911s,

I knew a 3.2 Carrera was the

one I truly wanted (maybe a

993 will be in my garage in

the future!). After local test

drives of both 915s and G50s,

two failed PPIs on prospective 911s, and eight months

of unhealthy obsessive searching (I had a process of

several websites and search queries that I would run

every day, multiple times a day), I found a 1989 3.2

in Illinois. I put a deposit down, booked a one-way to

Peoria with my girlfriend, and drove 800 miles home

in my dream car. I’m sure all the other Porsche owners

reading this will understand this, but the drive home

was surreal. Maybe it’s the honeymoon phase, but I

still catch myself just sitting in my garage sometimes

looking at it.

This isn’t a “Never Meet Your Hero” story. The 911

has lived up to every expectation plus more. When

I turn the key and hear the engine, smell the old

leather, and feel how responsive the car is, I feel like

that same six-year-old kid 20 years ago – only this

time I’m not fantasizing.

Hopefully, this won’t be my last Porsche, but I’m

beyond happy to own this, and even happier to be a

part of such an awesome community. In this era of

technological advancement and the industry’s

embarkment into electric vehicles with auto revmatching

and other driver aides, I’ll be cruising in my

air-cooled Porsche – with manual steering, that aircooled

sound that can’t be replicated by a battery, and

a driver connection that embodies what Porsche meant

when they said “There is no substitute.”

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

This month instead of debating electric cars or

lamenting my skills as a mechanic,

we’ll hear from a new voice. I’m going

to introduce “Porsche” the puppy

at Patriot PAWS that the Maverick

Region has sponsored with the help of

your donations. Patriot PAWS as many

of you know is an organization that

devotes their time and attention to

serving American Veterans by training

and providing high quality service dogs

at no cost. These dogs help our vets to

restore their physical and emotional

independence. Here is the letter that

we received from Porsche; she’s quite

well spoken for a six month old.

Hi. It’s me Porsche. I am almost 6

months old and boy have I learned a lot

since coming to Patriot PAWS. I am now

with a DFW Puppy Raiser named Tammie who is taking me to

all kinds of great places. We went for a demonstration at a law

firm and also went to play. Two entirely different experiences,

but I learned a lot from both. Cues I have

learned in the last month include “Loose

Leash Walk”, “Eye Contact”, “Go Now”

and “Load Up”.

My favorite toy is a ball, any kind

of ball. As an only pup, I have learned

that I can play all by myself when I

need to. For example, I can roll the ball

and fetch it too. I have learned a new

cue called “Leave It”. That is when I

am supposed to ignore things that I

would like to pick up, but shouldn’t.

And when I do it right, I get a yummy

treat, so it’s worth the restraint.

My Puppy Raiser says I am a sweet

pup with great focus and I work hard

and love to please.

So, in closing, I want to thank you for

supporting Patriot PAWS and making all of this possible.

Love, Porsche.
