Slipstream - November 2019


The monthly newsletter of the Maverick Region of the Porsche Club of America

Founders Day 2019

by Debi Kruder

Can you imagine more than 300 Mavericks and their

favorite Porsches coming together on the biggest event

of the year? You will soon hear their engines, recognize

the laughter, and experience what’s my favorite event of

the year!

On Saturday, December 7th, we will celebrate

57 years as a Maverick Region and its many

accomplishments at our annual Founders Day. It’s

one day, 3 events, and over 3000 members! Mark

your calendars and register today.

The morning will kick off with our monthly Mavs &

Mochas bright and early at Nordstrom’s North Park where

we will also host the 3rd annual Top Ten People’s Choice

Car Show. Nordstrom continues to be a generous host to

our members generously opening their department store

doors early to allow us to sneak through for coffee and

shopping. And what better time of year than December?

So, whether rain or shine, bring your Porsche and your

pocket book to start that Christmas shopping!

Speaking of shopping, don’t forget to load up your

Porsche too with holiday gifts for children in need for our

3rd annual Mavs Toy Parade. Participating cars will meet

at the Walmart located at 1700 Dallas Parkway in Plano.

As last year, the Maverick PCA is partnering with the

Plano Police Department in support of Plano Christmas

Cops. We are excited to lead the parade driving our ’64 356

with windows full of stuffed animals, baby dolls, and all

things merry with a Christmas tree on top to add to the fun!

So motor your car full of new and unwrapped toys, baby

supplies, and new coats for all ages, but especially teens.

Once your car is unloaded, feel free to enjoy downtown

Plano with your favorite Mavs and pick a lunch spot

before heading home for a quick nap. Then it’s time to

photos provided by Author

get dressed in your holiday attire! Feel free to dress up

or down in your favorite party dress, holiday sweater, or

even your cowboy boots cause it’s time to celebrate! Meet

us at Grapevine Porsche for festivities that begin at 7pm.

Early registration discount for this event is given through

November 20th at $45 per person (increases to regular

rate of $55 after that date.)

What do you have to look forward to at the Founders

Day evening event? First, we are celebrating 50 years of

the Porsche 914 and are excited to showcase many in our

club all while enjoying Pecan Lodge, an open bar, and

mingling with your favorite Mavs. Pecan Lodge will be

catering their award-winning pulled pork, smoked brisket

and new this year southern fried chicken, salad, and even

dessert to include peach cobbler and cupcakes. As the

evening progresses, members make their final votes for

our 2020 officers, hear the name of the recipient for the

James Shoffit Maverick of the Year Award, pick up their

silent auction purchased items before heading home with

a commemorative poster and car decal.

In addition, our 2nd annual online silent auction for

our charity the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House is ready for

viewing and bidding! Just visit the website, www.mav.pca.

org/FoundersDay and start bidding now! Our Founder’s

Day Silent Auction is our largest financial contributor to

Day Event Mugs, the finest Porsche gear, gift certificates

eliminate domestic violence through intervention, offering

shelter, counseling, support and education to promote the

healing of abusive relationships. Winning bidders pick up

Mochas or at the evening event following President David

Robertson’s closing comments.
