SPROCKETS: A Look Back

by David Robertson, Region President

Here we are at the end of the year once again. The year

2019 seemed to fly by, and the fact that it is December

already has

taken me by

surprise.

My term

as Maverick

Region

President will

come to an end

on December

31. Soon after

I joined the

Maverick region

in 2012, I was

immediately

impressed with

the time and effort that everyone put into making this

club a success and wanted to get involved. My wife Tracy

and I started volunteering at several events and found that

it was a lot of fun! We quickly met a lot of our members

and through events like Schnell Fest, Palooza, and

Boxtoberfest, we started meeting PCA members from all

over the country. We started attending and volunteering

at Autocrosses, Tours, and Socials, and really realized

what a great group of people we have in the club. Tracy

soon became the Social Chair and I started attending

board meetings with her to see how the mechanics of

the organization worked. I became Vice President of the

board in 2016 and later that year, due to an illness, I

stepped in for the President. Fast-forward to December

2019 and it has been an amazing three and a half years as

the President of the Maverick Region.

The Maverick Region has had an

incredible year, and there is a great

deal of momentum heading into

2020. Just a few years ago it would

have been hard to imagine that we

would have over 3000 members!

Our membership continues to

grow, and the activities planned

reflect the excitement and growth

of the club.

MAV OF THE MONTH:

Bill Middleton

Throughout my time on the board we have seen

tremendous growth, revitalization of existing programs,

and popular new events that experience phenomenal

attendance. All the credit goes to our event chairs and

other volunteers that put many hours into making existing

programs better and coming up with new activities to

keep our members engaged and excited to participate.

I mention all of this to say that even though I’m leaving

the board, I still look forward to volunteering within the

club in the future. The Maverick Region only exists due

to the time and enthusiasm of our volunteers, and I am

confident in saying that we have some of the best!

If you have been to a Maverick event, then it is probable that Bill has taken your

picture. He attends most of our events with camera in hand and posts great photos

shortly afterwards.

In addition to volunteering for the Maverick Region, Bill has been very closely

associated with the Huffaker-Hughes Hope House for many years and was

instrumental in their remodel during the mid-2000s. The Huffaker-Hughes Hope

House is one of the Maverick Region’s primary charities and Bill continues to work

closely with that organization today. Thank you, Bill, for your volunteer efforts

within the Maverick Region and very important work with the Huffaker-Hughes

Hope House!

Reflections on PCA Palooza

by Tom Stout

photos by Debi Kruder, Paul Moseley and Jimmy Gallegos

While cruising westbound on I-40 back home to the

great State of Texas, my wife Hayley and I had time to

reflect on our rookie weekend at PCA Palooza. It all

started a couple days before, charging through the rain

in the middle of a pack of 18 Maverick cars led by our

fearless and intrepid leader Frank Briggs. We arrived in

Eureka Springs just in time to see the clouds part and a

spectacular sunset in the west over the Ozarks.

The next day brought great weather and a “spirited”

drive through the hills. Afterwards we enjoyed meeting

Porsche folks and their wheels from around the country,

along with all the swag tables at Palooza HQ. We felt

right at home and welcome from the start.

A night on the town enjoying live local music

with fellow Mavericks followed, probably not to be

forgotten by the participants. Great fun. The next

day found us enjoying a relaxing walkabout around

downtown Eureka Springs, followed by a meandering

Porsche parade tossing candy to the smiling local kids.

Wind that day up with a huge car show, and the evening

closing banquet, and that’s a full but amazing day.

Everyone involved, from the organizers to the

participants to all the local residents, could not have

been nicer. Surrounded by Porsche cars, people, and

swag was super. For me, the highlight was introducing

my silver 2007 997S to its “grandfather,” a gorgeous

silver 1977 911S, and then to its “great grandfather,”

a pristine 1965 silver 356. For me it made the legacy of

these magnificent machines personal.

We will definitely be returning next year, but maybe

then with Hayley’s Boxster . . . after all, we may have

some different “relatives” to discover!

Below clockwise: Welcome to Palooza, you’re in good company. I’m told the

guy in that in the ‘68 (the middle one) can drive. Paul Moseley shoots when

he drives? Beautiful scenery though. The Hoffman on the square.

Right: Sights from Eureka Springs Arkansas as seen by some of our

members. It seems Mark Palmer has meet a new friend, either that or he is

asking for directions from a local. Mavericks showed some rare cars too.

PCA Palooza: 2019

by Jennifer Parma

After seeing some of the Mavericks post pictures of last

years’ trip to PCA Palooza, I knew I had to go this year!

I was invited to caravan with a group of 18 other P-cars

on the Thursday before the Palooza weekend. What a

great way to start out Palooza, driving to Eureka Springs,

looking at all of that gorgeous eye candy along the way!

Once I arrived, I picked up my registration packet and

bought some really some cool Palooza swag, including

a Porsche Motorsport jacket I have been wanting! I

immediately started seeing other familiar faces from the

Maverick region. Over the long weekend, there were

lunches, dinners, happy hours, and live music late into the

nights with my fellow Mavs which made the entire time

even more fun!

On Friday morning, I drove the “Dam Farmer’s

Daughter” tour, a 74-mile drive on those beautiful

twisties adorned with fall color. I am not as experienced

as some of the drivers on those twisty roads, so I felt

a bit intimidated, but with each turn, my driving and

photos by Scott Kellogg, Scott Kerfoot and Landon Stogner

speed improved. Definitely good practice for our future

local drives here!

Saturday was filled with another drive, the Parade

of Porsche Power, the Shine & Show, and the Banquet.

The parade was not only a visual experience, but, oh .

. . the sounds!! Whoa! I heard one man say along the

parade route, “Look at her driving by herself . . . good

for her!” It was then that I became overwhelmed with

a sense of gratitude at how fortunate I am to be able to

drive a beautiful Porsche, attend events like these and

be a part of such a wonderful club.

I have made so many great friends since attending

my very first Maverick event just a little over a year ago

and I am thankful to have had this experience with a lot

of them at PCA Palooza! Eureka Springs this time of

year is stunning with the fall color at its peak. Throw a

few hundred plus beautiful Porsches in that little town,

and I was in heaven! I am looking forward to next

year’s PCA Palooza!

Park Place Luxury and Supercar Showcase

by Olga Taylor

photos provided by Michael Durovick, Mike Mahoney, Peter Wen

Park Place promised “the fastest cars” at the Luxury

& Supercar Showcase, and the vehicles were spectacular.

Food and drink were abundant—now enough about that

event stuff.

Okay, so here’s what it was like for us Mavericks.

Pre-dawn, Mavericks gathered in the parking lot to

organize. Intense; it involved “fancy parking” and “refancy

parking” because Scott Kellogg was serious about

the procession—no car was to be out of order! A smiling

Mike Mahoney did the QC check and we relaxed.

Then, coolest of the cool, our parade of 30 Porsches

drove to the Car Club Showcase area. Not only did

we represent Porsche, the Maverick Region was

“representative” of a car club--we dominated in number

and cachet. Every Porsche was represented. Beyond the

Car Club Showcase, 13 Porsches were featured on the

main show field.

Once set up, it was such a blast to ogle over all the

cars. Most of us enjoyed chatting each other up all day—

the suite, Porsche Pavilion, or out and about. A great day

and lots of fun.

Porsche, Porsche, Porsche.

by Jennifer Parma

This was my first year to attend the Park Place Luxury

& Supercar Showcase, and what an experience it was! The

cars were beautifully displayed on the fairway and I felt

like I had died and gone to heaven! All of those stunning

specimens of new, classic, or somewhere in between - all in

one place. Wow!

The Car Club Expo was such a treat, seeing beauties from

area clubs represented by Lamborghini, Jaguar, and Ferrari,

just to name a few.... and Porsche represented the PCA

beautifully in true Maverick fashion. Way to go, Mavs! Of

course, I loved each and every one of the Porsches on display,

but also being a Jaguar owner, I was excited to see a vintage

‘54 Jaguar XK120 as well as the XJR-15 and XJ 220. I am

also very fond of classic Corvettes, especially the Stingray

coupe, and there were a handful of beautiful ones on display!

There were more than just cars on display. The tents

provided fabulously prepared samplings of food, drinks,

various vendors and even a fashion show. But, it was HOT!

And, in the heat of the day after viewing cars, I enjoyed

cooling off and visiting with my Porsche friends in the private

suite. We all love the Porsches in the group, but in the end it

truly is about the wonderful people who drive them.

The Tub Club Goes on Holiday

by Barbara Madsen

photos provided by Author

The 2019 High Desert Holiday, sponsored by the

Arizona Outlaws 356 Club, was a spectacular success!

This year, the holiday was held in Flagstaff, AZ,

October 2 through October 6. A plethora of events was

available for all who attended the holiday.

Flagstaff, known as the city of seven wonders, was

a perfect location for Porsche enthusiasts to explore

numerous natural wonders and to learn more about

the history of our country. The Grand Canyon, San

Francisco Peaks, Sunset Crater, Wupatki, Walnut

Canyon, Oak Creek Canyon, Coconino National

Forest, and the Petrified Forest National Park all were

explanation of Hopi traditions and history further

enriched our experience.

Four different guided tours were offered during two

days of the event:

• Grand Canyon South Rim and

the Grand Canyon Village

• Jerome, Cottonwood, and Sedona

• Meteor Crater and Winslow

La Posada Historic Hotel

• Lake Mary, Camp Verde/Verde Valley,

and Sedona

within 120 miles of Flagstaff. The breathtaking beauty

and history of these locations were awe-inspiring. The

Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff was also an important

stop for those interested in learning more about

telescopes and our amazing universe.

Porsche 356 enthusiasts also had an opportunity to

go to three different tech sessions: one covered engine

building, another gave details on a 356 restoration,

and a third demonstrated interior upholstery

methods. A Hopi dance presentation along with an

The People’s Choice Concours Car Show culminated

in prizes presented during the Awards Banquet, which

also included the keynote speaker, Renee Brinkerhoff of

Valkyrie Racing. A Swap Meet concluded the holiday.

Thank you Arizona Outlaws 356 Club for doing such

a great job in putting all of this together. A special

thanks goes to David Gill, Steve Proctor, and Scott Evans,

the event organizers, for their many hours of hard work.

Eleven cars from the Fort Worth/Dallas-based Tub Club

attended this event, and we all had a great time!

Mavs & Mochas: Tactical Fleet

by Raj Gill

The October Mavs

& Mochas fell on the

same day as the OU

vs. Longhorns football

game. Although it’s

traditionally a heated

rivalry, the morning

started off quite cold. As

the sun rose, it became

the perfect weather for a

Porsche gathering!

The venue was located

at a new place which

Mavs & Mochas had

never previously been.

Tactical Fleet is a new

car dealership located in

Addison. With plenty of

space and lots of Porsche

inventory, it made for a

fantastic location for us

Mavs. The owners, Chris

Barta and Jason Putnam,

went above and beyond

in catering breakfast and

coffee for everyone. Mi

Cocina was their caterer,

who was great!

We celebrated 30 years

of Porsche GT cars. Out

of a total of 125+

Porsches, over 35 GT

cars attended. A great

turn out. Other than car

sales, Tactical Fleet also

photos provided by Bill Kruder

offers services such

as paint correction,

detailing, paint protection

film, and car storage

options. They also have

an open door policy. Go

Autocross Series: Event 9 at Lone Star Park

by Mark Schnoerr, Region Autocross Chair

photos by Robert Kirby of Lightspeed Images

Event 9 had 21 Porsche drivers out of 79 entries.

That’s 27% of the field! Igor Tulandin continued his

winning streak in Class P0 with his Cayenne GTS. He

was running times that put him ahead of the Boxsters and

Caymans, except for the GT4 driven by Wendy Shoffit.

Very impressive driving in an SUV on an autocross

course. At the final event of the season, the Guns and

Hoses challenge, the Police and Firemen will be trying

to best him with their SUVs. That event was Sunday,

November 3 at Lone Star Park, Grand Prairie, TX.

Clay Perrine brought his just-completed 914/6 GT

4.0 to compete in class P6. You read that right: 4.0-liter

964-based six cylinder engine. Great sounds and looks

awesome! He is having to re-learn how to drive it but

will be a threat when he does. Class P1 had six entries

for another air-cooled 911 and 914 battle, with three

of each. Mark’s 914 pulled the win, followed by Carey

Spreen in his 911SC, Ed Mayo in his 911S, and Sigrid in

her 914. William Mayo won class P3 in his blue Boxster.

Rosenberg in his newly-acquired 996 Cabriolet. Class

P5 was a big fight right down to the last runs between

Owen Coulman in his 996 GT3 and Wendy Shoffit in

her GT4 Cayman. Owen put in a real flyer to win the

class and be quickest Porsche, ahead of the winning 914

and the GT4. Anna Zimmerman and Florian Steinberg

were visiting from Germany and drove the Schnoerr 993.

Anna has a bit more seat time in that car and pulled out

the win over her boyfriend.

Performance Index-adjusted top Porsche times were

Mark’s 914, Owen’s GT3, and Wendy’s GT4 respectively.

In Ladies overall Performance Index, Wendy was second

and Sigrid was third in her 914.

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 Holiday Shopping List

by Peter Wen

It’s time. You have dreamed about this day for what

seemed like decades. You worked hard. You raised a

family. Now it’s time for your reward. For this holiday

edition of Marktpreis, we feature three great generations

of 911 to put on your shopping list. For your hard earned

money, you can’t go wrong with these beauties.

Old School: 911 Carrera (’84-’89, Coupe, $25k-$60k)

Classic 911 looks with a powerful 3.2L engine and

a smooth G50 transmission, the second generation

911 offers great value compared to the OG, long-hood

911. These Carreras are the best of the impact-bumper

generation. #SaveTheWhaletails

The Last Airbender: 993 (’95-’97, Coupe, $45k-$55k)

The 993 is the poster child of the Porsche bubble. It

led the air-cooled valuation hysteria that peaked in 2016.

Average price has since fallen by about 20%. With its

classic Porsche good looks and modern performance, it is

one of the most desirable 911 generation. #LastAircooled

Modern Classic: 997.2 S (’09-’11, Coupe, $45k-$60k)

The 997.2 generation is the Goldilocks of modern Porsches.

It’s not too big and not too small. It’s not too sterile with

nanny aids and it’s not so antiquated that you have to worry

about an impromptu drag race at a stop light. Daily driver,

track toy, or a cross-country road trip? Check, check, and

check. The 997.2 911 just feels right! #BestGeneration

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder

photos provided by author

Well, as is the case, this one was a

pretty random meeting. As many of

you know, our member Bill Bradley

coordinates a Friday morning coffee

meet in Flower Mound aka FloMo.

Well I don’t get over there very often,

but several months ago I drove over

to join the group of eight to twelve

attending. As I sat down I noticed

this young man wearing this spiffy

newsboy hat, so I reached across the

table and introduced myself. Within

minutes we were talking about the

club and he’s offering up ideas for

the club, such as do we ever have a

blood drive or do we ever celebrate

our veterans. It didn’t take long to

realize we had someone that was all

about people. And for the

record, we are scheduling a

blood drive for this spring,

and we will have celebrated

our Maverick Vets by the

time you read this.

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations”

I would like to share with

you:

Carl Adee, member since 2019,

Owner 2006 Boxster S

Bill Kruder: So are you

originally from here?

Carl Adee: No, I grew up in a small

town: La Porte, Indiana. It’s about 40

minutes west of South Bend. I didn’t

move away until after high school;

most of my family is still there.

Carl Adee with Noah

BK: So how did you end up in DFW?

CA: My boss in Vegas had moved

here and was assigned to Lockheed-

Martin and was retiring, so he told

me I should apply for the position,

which was part of the F-35 program.

So I did, and as luck would have it,

I got the job; that was six years ago.

BK: What was the job?

CA: I guess you would say I was the

government liaison that reviewed

the maintenance procedures. I

retired from that job in September

of this year but am now employed

by Lockheed-Martin on the same

F-35 program.

BK: So I understand you are an Air

Force veteran. Is that what took you

from La Porte?

CA: Matter of fact it did. It seemed

everyone I knew was joining the

Navy after high school.

BK: But you joined the Air Force?

CA: I did. We had a Navy recruiting

office in town, so that’s why I guess

so many guys signed up. A friend of

mine who was a year older joined the

Air Force. On one of his trips home,

he said “Come on let’s go see the Air

Force recruiter. You don’t want to

be stuck on some sub or ship.” So,

we went to see them. I was a junior

in high school, and I signed up on

a deferred program where once I

graduated, I would be enlisted. As

things turned out I graduated, and

weeks later I was off to San Antonio

for basic training, then on to Wichita

Falls to finish up.

BK: And what were you training for?

CA: Well my grandpa, who pretty

much had raised me from fifth grade

on, always told me that if you can

do something with your hands, you

will always have a job. With that in

mind I became an aircraft mechanic

working on F-15, F-16, F-22, and

F-35 fighter engines.

BK: So did you end up getting moved

around a lot?

CA: Yes and no; my first assignment

was Luke Air Force base in Glendale

Arizona, about 15-20 minutes west

of Phoenix. I spent some time in Las

Vegas and then Delaware, where

I did work on the big C5 transport

engines. I also spent about a year in

Korea. I had some deployments as

well, including in 2002, where I was

part of Gulf War II (Iraqi Freedom).

As it turned out I was there

for about 190 days.

BK: I understand you just

retired; aren’t you are

awfully young to be retired?

CA: Well in the armed

forces you can retire after

20 years of active duty.

For me it was 20 years

and 3 months (smiling).

And for the record I’m 38

(laughing).

BK: And you are married?

CA: Yes. I have been

married to Sonia for 14 years

and we have two kids: Noah is 7 and

Olivia is 1.

BK: So how did you and Sonia meet?

CA: Well it was pretty random. I was

on leave and kind of vacationing in

Las Vegas and as it turned out so was

she. It was Labor Day weekend and

we were at the Ghostbar at the Palms

Hotel. We ran into each other and we

just started talking about our love for

the Chicago Cubs and hung out the

rest of the weekend. As it turned out she

was from Naperville, a suburb of Chicago,

and I was from about 90 minutes

away in La Porte.

20 November


BK: Well that’s a small world. How

did you both manage things with you

being in Glendale?

CA: Well I guess she kind of liked me

(laughing) so she would come visit

me or I would go there. Then we

spent that Christmas Eve with her

family and Christmas Day we spent

with mine; this was 2003.

BK: I understand there was a strange

turn of events before you got married?

CA: Well kind of. We went to Chicago

for Valentine’s Day and I proposed to

her. I no sooner got back to Glendale

and I had orders sending me to

Korea. Needless to say we weren’t

expecting that but it all worked out

and we were married in July of 2005

in Chicago.

BK: Ok let’s talk cars. What was your

first car?

CA: It was a 1981 Jaguar XJ6. I found

it at this place called Lemon Lot,

where guys would just buy and sell

cars from this random lot.

BK: So how did you end up in the

Porsche world?

CA: Easy. When I was about 7 years

old my uncle, who’s 11 years older,

always let me hang around with him.

Well one day he came over and gave

me this cool picture of a 944 and I

loved it. Matter of fact I still have

the picture and just recently gave it

to Noah.

BK: So first Porsche?

CA: I’m driving it. We bought our

2006 Boxster about nine months ago.

BK: And why this one?

CA: Well I was planning on retiring

and wanted to get myself a retirement

gift. I started reading Excellence

magazine and really studied it,

deciding that the Boxster was it. We

looked at one, a 2008 Boxster RS 60

in orange; we took it for a test drive

and Sonia knew this wasn’t the car.

We then went to Porsche Grapevine

and I told them what I was looking

for. Well about 12 days later they

called me and said “we have one you

need to see.” So we drove over and it

was this Silver on Terracotta. Sonia

said “this is the one,” and the rest is

history (laughing).

Well as usual I always walk away

surprised at what chances life brings

us in meeting people when we just

stop or are stopped to say hello. It

doesn’t matter if you are an attendee

or a chairperson - it’s the people; we

call that Driving Friendships.

We’ll give

you an

assist on

your future

goals.

Contact me to learn how you can get

the most out of retirement.

Maverick Drivers’ Education Series: October and November Recap

by Renee Hayden, Region DE Chair

provided by Hart Photography

On October 19 and 20, the Maverick Region’s DE

program was at Eagles Canyon Raceway in Decatur for

our second event on the new 1.65-mile short course.

Everyone had fun and we are acclimating well to the

new facility. Like all our DE events, we drove parade

laps at lunch time benefiting the Patriot PAWS charity.

The highlight of the event came on Sunday, when Eagles

Canyon offered to let us drive the parade laps not only

in the clockwise or opposite direction but gave us access

to drive the entire 2.7-mile course. I believe we were

the first organization to get this opportunity. When we

announced the change to the full 2.7-mile course, many

of our Drivers and Coaches headed for their cars! Their

generous donations to Patriot PAWS totaled $440.

Thank you for your donations, and thank you

to Eagles Canyon for helping make it happen!

As stated on the Patriot PAWS website: “The

mission of Patriot PAWS is to train and provide

service dogs of the highest quality at no cost

to disabled American veterans and others with

mobile disabilities and Post-Traumatic Stress

Disorder (PTSD) in order to help restore their

physical and emotional independence.”

Our sponsor for the October event weekend

was Autobahn Porsche in Fort Worth. John

Hamilton is not only Autobahn’s representative,

but he is a long time Maverick Region Driving

Coach and Club member. Thank you to John and

Autobahn for your continued support for our DE events.

Below is a picture of one of our Team Leaders, Steve

Jackson, with Drivers Chuck Furlich and John Hamilton,

as Chuck receives his promotion to our Blue Solo Run

Group. Congratulations Chuck! Congratulations to all

the Drivers who received promotions during this event

and the November event too.

November Event

We just wrapped up the last DE event of the year

at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson on November 9 and

10. We enjoyed absolutely beautiful weather for the

weekend. We have not driven the 1.7-mile track in the

clockwise direction in many years, so the new track

direction was like an entirely new track for many of our

drivers and some of our coaches. We would like to thank

all of the drivers and coaches who helped make the

weekend great as well as the Maverick Region PCA Club

Racers who sponsored the event. We also welcomed Hart

Photography as a new sponsor for our breakfast treats.

Hart Photography is our long time event photographer

who captures great images of your car while on track. You can

see and purchase your images for this event on his website at:

https://www.hart-photography.com/events/maverick-regionpca-motorsport-ranch-november-9th-10th-2019/.

That’s all of our events for this year, but we are already

working to finalize next year’s event calendar. The entire

calendar will be posted on our website when it is complete.

In the meantime, please mark your calendar for our

first confirmed event of the year on February 22-23,

2020 at MotorSport Ranch in Cresson on the 3.1-mile

track. Registration will open Wednesday, January 22,

2020 at 8:00 am.

From your Maverick DE Team, we hope you have a

happy holiday season with friends and family, and we

hope to see all of you at the track in 2020!

Dear Tire Guy

What is Heat Cycling

and Why Does it Matter to You?

Track and competition tires are manufactured to be very

aggressive, and need to be broken in first to perform

consistently later. Tires flex under load and duress as they

roll into and out of contact with the road surface. As a tire

flexes and heats up it breaks some of the weaker bonds

between the rubber molecules. After an initial heat cycle

the rubber bonds will link again after they cool, this time

more uniformly and stronger. A full heat cycle therefore

consists of heating and flexing the tire to break weak

rubber bonds and then allowing it to cool for at least 24

hours so the rubber compounds re-link stronger and more

track-ready.

So why does this matter to you? Because if a tire is initially

run too hard, rather than being properly heat cycled,

it will break not only the weaker rubber bonds, but the

stronger ones as well and this will reduce their grip.

Proper heat cycling will also allow for more consistent

performance on the track, as well as longer tread-life.

That’s more money back in your pocket per lap.

Who doesn’t like more money, right? No one. That’s who.

Until next month, drive on!

A Boo-tiful Event: 5th Annual Halloween Rally Overcomes the Weather

By Ed Martelle

provided by Hart Photography

It was a miserable Saturday morning. Gray leaden

skies, cold temperature, winds at 30 mph, and of course,

drizzle and light rain. Still, 29 cars turned up for the 5th

Annual Halloween Rally, starting in The Colony.

Once underway, the rain stopped, the wind lightened,

the drizzle lifted, and the sun came out. The day continued

to improve further, as the finish was at Pilot Point’s wellknown

Buff’s Grill, which made all contestants and

volunteers right at home, and well-fed.

The 82-mile rally was quite straightforward,

but challenging nonetheless, with 18 questions,

10 photographs to be identified along the route,

and six bonus point questions. What the rally

lacked in scenery, it made up for by keeping the

teams very busy.

In addition to the Rally, won by Claudia and Jeff

Reynolds (second place: Raul & Lisa Pena, with Jason and

Patrick Lamers in third, and the coveted Dead Last But

Finished Award going to Frankie Vasquez and Alejandra

Franco), there were the costumes. It was a Halloween

Rally after all. First place for Couples went to Mike

and Lisa Reiss, dressed as scarecrows. Second place for

couples went to Marc and Chris Weinberg, who dressed as

a convict and a prison guard. New this year were awards

for best single costume: First place for Natalie Parma, a

Costume winners: 2nd Place Couples: Mark & Chris Weinberg (Convict

and Prison Guard), 1st Place Couples: Mike and Lisa Reiss (Scarecrows), 1st

Place Individual Costume: Natalie Parma (Devil) and 2nd Place Individual

Costume: Ginger Heuerman (Hippie Girl)

very convincing devil, while second place went to Ginger

Heuerman, a dead ringer for Janis Joplin.

The original Rallymaster for the event was Jay Lynch,

who died while work on the rally was underway. Rally

Chair Don Sebert and an intrepid band of volunteers did

the finishing touches to the event and handled sign-in and

scoring for what became the Jay Lynch Memorial

Halloween Rally. And true to Jay’s spirit and vision,

everyone competing was encouraged to have fun and

enjoy, and, according to post-event conversations, that’s

exactly what they did. A fitting tribute.

Julia Cleath - Today was an exciting day! My husband

and I participated in a car show. It was a debut for our

‘81 911 SC. We’ve recently finished a lengthy restoration.

I always enjoy hanging with the Mavs & Mochas

regulars, but today was extra special! The event was

held at The Star

in Frisco, and

had a Halloween

theme, including a

“trunk-or-treat!”

Each vehicle

supplied candy;

many costumed

children came.

The Star venue

offered good

coffee and a

variety of places

to eat. The

weather was

beautiful, and it

ProTecht

appeared that everyone in attendance enjoyed the day.

We had 50+ Porsches, with nearly 100 Maverick

Region members. This was a great showing, as multiple

car clubs were invited.

At these events, I love connecting with the other gals,

(no offense guys),

and today did not

disappoint. Some

of my favorite

Maverick ladies

were there! I

would love to

see more of you

gals come to

these events! We

always have a

good time!

Becky Gomer - What does one say when being asked to

participate in a car show? Of course, you say “yes.” The

Star in Frisco held its annual Star Car Show on Saturday,

October 26. The event information stated that we would

see some of the most popular antique and classic muscle

cars through the decades, as well as a “Trunk or Treat”

for the kids to participate.

The early morning clouds and mist finally parted to

reveal a sunny but

cool Saturday. We

enjoyed hot coffee

with friends,

which I guess

we can consider

an impromptu,

before the show

officially began

at 10 am. I was

impressed with

several of the

various cars in

Top:Wilson Scaggs and

his 944 Turbo ‘Spider’

Bottom: Rare birds

Right: Jon’s ‘95 918

attendance, such as a McLaren Senna, several Shelby

Cobras, and my personal favorite, a Shelby Raptor.

However, truth be told, I was more pleased walking

around our Porsche parking area of more than 50

Maverick members’ cars, which truly represented the

decades of classic Porsche design. From 356s, 911s, 914s,

944s, Boxsters, a Panamera, a Macan, and finally, I can’t

forget the always crowd-pleasing 918. We have some

outstanding cars in our club!

We invited some friends, who own a convertible and

always love to discuss cars when we go out, to meet us at

the event. It was fun to walk around with them discussing

all of the different cars at the show. After seeing the

attendance of our Porsche club and getting the opportunity

to view our star cars, I think we have a couple of future

Maverick members on our hands. I’ll be sure to introduce

them when they join the Porsche family.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

I guess it’s traditional to wrap up the year and take

stock in January, which seems a little a little late to me.

I don’t think it’s fair to expect a person to really reflect

on an entire year and plan a new one after wading

through all of the egg nog, cookies and little dandy

things that seem to be around the house then. Not to

mention the glutinous meals and relatives you’re still

recovering from. It can’t just be me. So I’m starting

earlier this year.

The club has enjoyed unprecedented growth, and why

not? Great cars, great events, but as the tag line says,

great people too. Some of those great people are moving

to new positions in the club, and some are taking a well

deserved break. David Robertson has been president

of the Maverick Region since January of 2017, having

served as vice president before that. (Incidentally,

that’s when I began putting ads together for Slipstream

as well, under the tutelage of Mr. Jim Hirsch.) David

has put together 3 great years of club events with the

help of many volunteer board members and many more

volunteer club members working together to pull these

events off, but it’s a lot of work. If you see David at an

event, he’s always wearing a smile and has a handshake

waiting for you. I imagine that will not change, even

when he moves on from his role as president. We owe

David a great thanks for his many years of contributions

to the club. I don’t get to award a Mav of the Month,

but he’d be my pick this month if I did. Thanks David!

As I look back at 2019, I think of all of the great

drives and events I attended. I also think of all of the

great drives and events I wasn’t able to attend. Don’t let

this happen to you. Plan your year around the Maverick

calendar. Don’t miss a single exciting installment of

Mav & Mochas, or hair raising adventure at Motoring

Mavs at Mayo. Seriously, walk into that shop and try

not to get excited about the air-cooled goodness.

Whatever you do, whether you’ve been to a hundred

events or are thinking about going to your first, take the

step and meet some new folks. They’re showing up

every week in record numbers, and they all drive

Porsches. Can you think of a better thing to have in

common? Yeah, I know: Enjoy the drive!
