MAV.PCA.ORG

With life getting back in motion, now is the perfect time to discover a classic in the

making: Taycan. It’s the first all-electric Porsche sports car, with two permanent-magnet

synchronous motors generating up to 750 hp and acceleration faster than a skydiver in

free fall. Plus, an 800-volt battery that can be partially recharged to add up to 62 miles of

range in just over five minutes. And at Park Place, this new Porsche icon comes with a total

commitment to sanitation, safety and comfort every time you visit the dealership.

That’s what makes Park Place feel like Your Place.

Still life in the car world.

Board Botschaft: Virtually New for 2021

by Bill Kruder, Region President

I don’t know about you, but I didn’t think 2020 was

ever going to end. But with a great sigh we can say we

made it. In looking back on it now, you might say it was

an interesting year. Maybe even a fun year with much reimagined

and many firsts.

Who would have thought we would have our first virtual

Mavs & Mochas? We enjoyed not one but two virtual

Happy Hours. We had two innovative Tech Sessions, the

last of which was broadcast live via Facebook. Board

meetings - we didn’t miss a beat, having simultaneous inperson

and virtual meetings, moving to all-virtual as the

year came to a close.

As the pandemic continued, ideas on the future began to

unfold. Slipstream, your award-winning newsletter, will take

on a new look, going to bimonthly publication in addition to

a new robust online magazine in the spring of 2021.

Events that once required paperwork went paperless. A

great example is our Rallies. Ginger and Tom Heuerman

re-imagined how they are done and created a completely

paperless event creating a new format with even more fun!

How about Founders Day? I can’t imagine a better

way we could have ended the year! Who would have ever

thought it would be an afternoon and outdoor event; more

about that on pages 8-9.

Our Concours Chair, Scott Kellogg, had to postpone

until 2021 what will be the biggest and best show ever

seen. But in the meantime, he pulled off our People’s

Choice show at the Founders Day Family Affair, not only

voting by classes this year, but also going paperless and

using our phones to scan and self-tabulate the winners;

more about that on page 14.

Membership, which sputtered early on, began to come

back, and we are again averaging 25-30 new members a

month, and as of this writing we will have over 300 new

Notes from our Zone Rep

by Chuck Bush, Zone 5 Representative

faces to drive friendships with.

And yes, we had our annual election of officers too, and

I thank you for once again allowing me to be President for

one more year; more about the election results on page 29.

So as we begin to think about 2021 we will continue to

keep the safety of our members as priority one. I thank you

for your patience and your kindness as we look forward to

another great year.

My wife Debi and I are honored to serve you and we

look forward to seeing you all soon.

• Track day preparation • PCA discounts • Porsche factory computers

• Comprehensive service from air-cooled to 991

One of the fun things about the

Porsche Club is the wide diversity

of our members’ interests. Some

folks are in the club for the social

aspects, some for the wonderful

Porsche Panorama magazine, some

for the motorsports, and every

other possible reason.

As the Zone Rep I spend quite a

bit of time at PCA Club Races, but

I am really not in PCA for racing.

I have great respect for the racers

and I really enjoy going to Club

Races, but spending a lot of time

on the track is not something that

motivates me. I am motivated by

the maintenance and restoration

aspects of Porsche ownership.

Sometimes I wonder if I enjoy being

under a car more than being in one!

Regardless, I still do quite a

bit of autocross and on-track

drivers’ education because I enjoy

challenging myself to be a better

driver. As I drive around our city,

I have come to appreciate the road

handling skills that have gradually

sunk in from autocross and DE.

These skills make me a much

more proactive driver as well as

improving my ability to handle the

car in unexpected situations.

So whatever your reason for

belonging to PCA, consider taking

advantage of the drivers training

offered by your region. You might

be surprised at how it can make you

a better driver and how much safer

and more comfortable you’ll feel

on the road. Practice makes perfect,

and as much as we drive, practicing

in the controlled environment of

an autocross or DE can do you a

world of good.

Be safe out there!

Founders Day Mavs & Mochas: Nordstrom NorthPark

by Rob Turner

photos provided by Paul Moseley, Scott Scheetz & Melissa Tuason

During COVID there are moments where you just

want to break free, even if just for a few hours to

remind ourselves collectively what it was like before

“The New Normal” set in. A lot of events have been

postponed or restructured during COVID. Even our

Founders Day was rescheduled. But fear not, faithful

Mavs. We are, if nothing else, intrepid in our quest to

drive our beloved P-Cars.

For this year, our annual Maverick Region Founders

Day has been expanded to - count ‘em - four events.

Kicking things off was the monthly Mavs & Mochas,

then a toy drive up to the Plano Police department, then

on to Grapevine Porsche for both The People’s Choice

Concours and the Family Affair luncheon.

One of the things that struck me was all the new

people that I met. Usually I spend time talking to a

bunch of folks I know, but I never got the chance. I met

a couple that had just moved from Orange County, CA

to the DFW area; another who had been a member for

a while, but this M&M was his first event driving a

sick (meaning way cool) Lime Gold 997; and a friend

of mine whom I finally convinced to both join PCA and

start coming out to M&M events. And he brought his

kids along too. Quote of the day: “Look dad, that car

has four engines just like yours,” said my friend’s son as

he pointed to a nearby 991 with quad exhaust. See, he

is already learning what makes a car go fast!

See you all next month at the next M&M.

MAVERICK REGION

FOUNDERS DAY 2020

four events , one great time

Mavs & Mochas, or as the cool kids like to

call it, M&M, started things off at Nordstrom

NorthPark, special thanks to Clark and Vanessa.

There was just a hint of chill in the air as cars

started rolling in about 8:00 am. But things

soon heated up - not the temperature so much

as a large gathering of Turbos. The Porsche 911

Turbo, in all its guises, was the featured car. Of

the 150 cars that attended, 27 were Turbos, or

almost 20% of all the cars gathered. Not bad,

Turbo folks!

Founders Day: Family Affair

by Debi Kruder, Special Events Chair

photos provided by Paul Moseley, Scott Scheetz & Peter Wen

Who would have thought we

could end such a challenging

2020 with one of our biggest

celebrations ever with fellow

Mavericks and their families

joining us at Porsche Grapevine for

the first ever Founders Day Family

Affair? Saturday, December 5th

included four great events: Mavs

& Mochas, Mav’s Toy Drive, the

People’s Choice Car Show, and

the Founders Day Family Affair

celebrating the Maverick Region’s

58th Anniversary!

Did somebody count 308 IN-

N-OUT burgers? Yes, that is what

our more than 350 attendees ate in

addition to 100 Twerk City Tacos,

and 181 Pizzeria Testa wood fired

pizzas. You could say we were a

hungry crew! Many thanks to our

participating vendors who catered us

even “animal style!” And for those

a little thirsty, Monkey Shoulder

Whiskey spoiled us with give-a-ways

including t-shirts, mugs, socks and

more with their refreshing cocktails

not to mention Manhattan Project

Beer Company with their amazing

craft brew. That coupled with 110

Sangrias and 175 Margaritas ensured

everyone had a good time!

8 January

What was the show stopper?

Hard to say! Many were in awe

of the big 18-wheeler IN-N-OUT

Cookout Truck with its multiple

canopies and as my son Conor said,

“it was the best IN-N-OUT burger

I’ve ever had!” Next, Chris and Kris

Fernandes drove in with their ‘67

Hippie VW Bus with great tunes to

set the stage for fun. Meanwhile,

the kids were enjoying games of

Maverick Cornhole, some Porsche

Autocross, and some Steel City Pops.

Outside the tent, our Mavs were

walking among the People’s Choice

Car Show with their favorite

cocktail, picking up a free cigar

from Kristoff Cigars, and well

enjoying all the eye candy! Many

Mavs stopped me to say it was the

best Founders Day ever, loving the

casual atmosphere, opportunity for

the entire family (we sure enjoyed

having ours there!), multiple food

and drink selections and well folks,

it’s likely to be a 2021 repeat based

on all of your feedback! I’m

thankful for the good that we can

take from 2020, for our fellow

Mavericks, and that we continue to

drive friendships!

Opposite Page from Top: IN-N-OUT feeds the crowd at the car show and Monkey Shoulder kept us lubricated. Chris Fernandes at the DJ booth kept us entertained

and no family outing would be complete without a Hot Wheels race or two. Above: Friends and Porsches definitely go together, especially on a cool sunny day.

Pizzeria Testa, kept the pizzas coming. The Stogner clan had the best seat in the house, unless you asked Linda Bambina rolling out with Alan.

Hope House and the Founders Day Silent Auction

by Debi Kruder, Special Events Chair

The Maverick Region is proud to be a partner of the

Huffaker-Hughes Hope House since 1993. Hope exists to

eliminate domestic violence. Our most significant financial

contribution is annually through our Founders Day Event

Silent Auction and this year was no different! The auction

had 244 bids raising nearly $10,000 for the charity.

What was the #1 purchased Silent Auction Item? More

than 50 Farm Road Coffee Mugs are now enjoying some

Maverick coffee time each morning.

What was the most active bid on item? The Hot Wheels

Collector Starter Kit, set of 9, donated by fellow Maverick

Peter Wen and won by our Club Race Registrar and COVID

Communications Chair Wendy Shoffit as a birthday gift for

her husband James.

Which item raised the highest dollar amount in support of

the Hope House? The Tactical Fleet Expel Porsche Bra Front

End Clear Bra raised $1,350 won by winning bidder Steve

Kennedy raising nearly 15% of our total.

And guess what? That’s not all.

While the auction raised nearly

$10,000, we also raise money for

the Hope House through our

People’s Choice Car Show and

online donations. The People’s

Choice Car Show Participants all

contributed $25 each for a total of

$1,850 not to mention our

Founders Day DJ Chris Fernandes

generously said he would entertain

us if the MRPCA contributed $500 to the Hope House. All

said, between our generous sponsors, our Silent Auction

participants, People’s Choice Car Show participants, and our

generous Mavericks the Hope House is receiving nearly

$14,000 as a result of the MRPCA Founders Day and Silent

Auction! I can think of no better year than this one to

contribute generously to the end of domestic violence.

Founders Day People’s Choice Car Show

by Scott Kellogg, Concours Chair photos by Carl Adee, Bill Beck, Rick Miranda, Paul Moseley & Scott Scheetz

Well we finally had a car show in 2020,

and what a show it was! Registration

maxed out and yet we still managed to

get them onto the show field … well,

show parking lot, but field sounds better.

It was a beautiful day once all the

cars started rolling in. We introduced

our Class judging at this show for the

first time to see how it would test out.

Things seemed to go very well, with

only a few tweaks for the upcoming

Concours in May 2021.

I would like to send out special

thanks to Scott Kerfoot for his help in

setting up the mobile voting for

everyone. He did an outstanding job

and I truly do appreciate all his help, as

well as the help of Landon Stogner and

all the Maverick volunteers!

Opposite Page from Top: “The Skittles” as they were known, stopped the show and were the subjects of more than a few photos as you’ll see this

month. Jason Morski and wife Carrie were double winners taking home not only the new Outlaw trophy, but also the President’s choice trophy for

their 1976 911S. Carl Adee with daughter Olivia enjoy Founders Day Family Affair. Above: Jim Mango puts the finishing touches on Kermit

Founders Day Toy Parade

by Paul Moseley, Photography Chair

A very important part of the Maverick Region Porsche Club

of America’s Founders Day observation is the annual Mavs Toy

Drive that benefits The Plano Police Christmas Cops. An

estimated 100 Porsches participated collecting nearly $1800 in

gift cards and over 500 toys, clothes, and other essentials. Drive

leader Glenn Burgess and his wife Pier accepted a plaque from

Plano Police Lt. Alicia Nors at the department. As Maverick

tradition, Ginger Heuerman was there too with her annual

handmade bears made with love . The participation by Mav

members helps those in need, both children as well as adult family

members, during the holiday season. Good on ya Mavs!

Equipe Rapide (Maverick Region’s autocross partner)

President Andy Cost designed a very challenging course

combining acute turns, decreasing radius turns, high

speed sections, and a very fast finish. The event pulled

in 123 entries, 19 of whom drove Porsches, with a total

of 738 timed runs for the day. Since this was a charity

event for Guns and Hoses, the Police and Firefighter

Foundation, Maverick PCA donated $1000.00, with

Equipe Rapide donating another $5,000.00. Participants

could “buy back” any cone penalties for $5.00 per cone,

thus improving their scores; all participants donated

their PAX award payouts; and the Guns and Hoses

Team set up their swag store, selling burgers, drinks,

and chips, to do very well for the organization we are

supporting. Thank you all for your contributions.

Since this was the last event of the season, some class

championships were on the line, which we can report

on after the Awards Banquet takes place this month.

Igor Tulandin again showed us how quick a Cayenne

GTS can run in anger by winning class P0 over newcomer

James St. Peter in his Macan Turbo. James brought his wife to

drive her Audi A5 in class DSL, where she improved her time

each run, and is going to be another quick driver next season.

In P1, Joe Wilkinson wheeled his 1974 911 Carrera to the

win over Mark and Sigrid’s 914, taking 1st to 3rd in class

respectively. Ed Mayo and Julia Underwood brought their

914 back to this event to round the class out with two drivers

in each car, including Joe’s son Scott in the ’74 Carrera.

In P2, Carey Spreen, Boxster S, barely edged out Doug

Edney, 996 coupe, for the win, with Russ Rosenberg, 996

P0 - 'PCA Zero'

Maverick 914’s ready for war at the last autocross for 2020

Cab, and newcomer Craig Sims, 2010 Boxster, also turning

in respectable times.

In P3, Reid Cloud continues to fly in the all-Cayman S

and -GT4 group at this event. Calvin Yeh, along with Steve

and Sherry Farnham, came in 2nd to 4th respectively.

P4 is for the newest cars, and Steve Krysil showed us

how quick the new 992S can be right out of the box.

In P6, Robin Howard drove her red 996 to the win over

the beautiful red 914-GT 4.0 of Clay Perrine.

The Awards Banquet takes place on January 16, and

the 2021 event calendar will be published as soon as we

have it finalized.

Maverick Marktpreis: 911 Turbo

by Peter Wen, Region Merchandise Chair

Turbo: noun - A method of forced induction that uses

exhaust gasses to turn a turbine, to force more air into

the engine.

Jeremy Clarkson’s translation: “POWERRRRR!”

Introduced as a 1975 model at the Paris Auto Show,

the 930 Turbo could do 0-60 in less than five seconds,

completely blowing away all contenders in that era,

including Ferrari’s time of eight seconds! Forty-five

years later, “Turbo” remains the flagship for Porsche.

The last three years have not been kind to air-cooled

Turbos. The OG 930 led the way with a valuation drop

of 22%. On the other hand, the often-overlooked 996

gen Turbo had an impressive 16% gain. The Goldilocks

997 gen is now near the bottom of its depreciation curve.

Turbos are the pinnacle of Porsche engineering and

opulence. Happy 45th birthday, 911 Turbo!

Fun Fact: The new 2020 992 Turbo S

boasts 640 HP and a 2.6-sec 0-60 time.

Starting price is $203,500. For the same

and a pair of Macans (his and hers).

And you would still have $100 leftover

What a year 2020 was! It’s nice

to be able to say 2021 is here at last.

To start the New Year I wanted to

share with you what may be the

busiest club volunteer we have. You

all know his work as our Editor,

but a lot of you don’t know before

that he was our club ad designer.

Not only did he do that, but he is

also credited with taking our crazy

idea of making a “brand” out of our

coffee meets. We gave him the name

Mavericks and Mochas and a

few days later he said “I have

an idea: do you like ‘Mavs

& Mochas?’” Well of course

we did, and with that you see

this brand image on coffee

mugs, tee shirts, window

stickers, our tent, and more;

in my marketing days we

called this “synergy.”

Not only is he busy

creating our award-winning

magazine - you will often

catch him out at many

events. I’m proud to call this

guy my friend and a great

“partner in crime” as we say.

So here is the next in my

series of “conversations” I would

like to share with you . . .

Kurt Scaggs, Member since 2013

1986 944 Turbo and 1987 Carrera

Bill Kruder: Let’s start off with the

usual. Where are you from?

Kurt Scaggs: Well I was born in

Houston, but we moved when

I was two to Slidell, Louisiana,

which is off the northeast shore of

Lake Pontchartrain, or about 45

minutes northeast of New Orleans.

I graduated from North Shore High

School in 1991.

BK: What about college - did you stay

in-state?

KS: Nope, I didn’t, for a couple

reasons. One, it seemed everyone

from high school was going to LSU

20 January

Coffee, Cars & Conversation

by Bill Kruder, Region President

and I really didn’t want to just spend

another four years with the same

group of people. And secondly, my

dad took me to a Texas Tech game

and we sat with the band, and I guess

that sold me. Well there is actually a

bit more to it. My dad and mom both

are Tech grads; matter of fact my

grandmother is too, so maybe that

had some influence on my decision

(smiling).

Kurt and Melissa Scaggs with son Wilson

BK: Wait a second - most people visit

a college but they don’t go to a game

and sit with the band?

KS: I know right? Sounds kind of geeky

(laughing) but the story behind that is

that I was in my high school band, and

then on top of it, the band instructor

at Tech was best friends with my dad

and insisted we sit with them.

BK: So you played in the

marching band?

KS: Yes I did. I was a

trombone player. I started

in middle school, played in

high school, and in my dad’s

footsteps played for the 450

member “Goin’ Band from

Raiderland”.

BK: So did you get a music

degree?

photos provided by Kurt Scaggs

KS: Oh no! I was a Fine Arts

major getting my degree in Design

Communication and Packaging Design.

BK: So that’s what you do now?

KS: It is. I’m one of very few people

I know that do precisely what they

studied in undergrad. I started out

designing product packaging for

H-E-B Grocery when we lived in San

Antonio and have remained in that

business every since. I now

run my own design business

specializing in retail food

packaging.

BK: So how did you and

Melissa meet?

KS: We were both in the same

church youth group. We

knew each other but we did

not start dating until I was

a senior in high school (she

was a junior).

BK: Wow! So a year later you

go off to Tech, which is some

16 hours away?

KS: I know, right? Then,

when she did graduate, she went

off to UT in Austin for her first

year before transferring to Tech.

Once graduating, we moved to San

Antonio so that she could attend UT

Dental School.

BK: So how did you two end up in Dallas?

KS: Once she finished in San Antonio

Kurt and his parents at an Alumni Band event at Tech

she did a one-year residency at Baylor

College of Dentistry of Dallas before

setting up practice in the area. And

with my work I could more or less

work anywhere.

BK: So how long have you been

married?

KS: We dated for 6 years, got

married in 1997, and had Wilson

in 2012.

BK: Ahhh yes, Wilson, love the

name. Where did it come from?

KS: That was Melissa’s

grandfather’s middle name and

we thought it would cool to keep

the name in the family. An added

benefit is that he rarely gets confused

with anyone else.

BK: Now let’s switch subjects to cars.

What was your first?

KS: My first car my dad brought

home for me was an ‘85 Honda

Accord hatchback. I think it had less

than 100 horsepower, and when I

was given the keys, I was encouraged

to keep in under 3,000 RPM’s

for the sake of the engine. Not a

chance. Then I had an equally high

performance ‘89 Accord, white with

burgundy. It had those cool pop-up

headlights.

7777 WARREN PARKWAY STE 325, FRISCO, TX

BK: What was your first Porsche?

KS: That would be the Guards Red

‘87. We bought that in 2013 shortly

after Wilson was born.

Although Wilson currently prefers Mustangs,

he never turns down a ride

BK: So why Porsche?

KS: Like so many boys when I was

growing up I’d built model cars -

matter of fact at the time my favorite

was the 993. Hours of pouring

through my Dad’s car magazines

helped drive the dream.

BK: So what made you finally buy one?

KS: I was at a Classic BMW Cars &

Coffee and I saw a 1969 Tangerine

911 and I started talking to this

guy - he had this long hair, a beard,

sounds kind of tough (smiling) and he

told me everything I wanted to know

about the cars

down to the best

model to get into.

After some time in

the club I met Bob

Aines again for the

first time. Bob is

a local legend for

those who don’t

know him and I

credit him with

passing on the

Porsche passion.

BK: Where did

you find the car?

KS: I started

looking online

and found this

one in Stow,

Massachusetts

which is right outside of Boston. I

bought it sight unseen after a PPI and a

subsequent conversation with the fine

folks at Mayo Performance. The car

rolled out of the transporter and

found its way to Bedford for some

maintenance shortly thereafter

and it’s been love ever since.

BK: Now I know a bit about the

944, as you bought that from

our mutual friend?

KS: Yes I did. In high school

the 944 Turbo was the car

in my daydreams. I started

poking around, and Jim Hirsch

mentioned he was looking to

sell his. Anyone who knows

Jim knows how particular he is, so

I knew I was getting a great car. I

purchased the car in late summer

of 2018 and proceeded to drive it

out to Rennsport VI at Laguna Seca

a few weeks later. Not only did I

caravan out with some fellow Mavs,

I was able to do parade laps on the

legendary track. Another childhood

dream checked off the list.

BK: Lastly, how did you, or why did

you, get so involved in the club?

KS: As soon as we had bought the

‘87 we joined the club and started to

attend some events. We also started

getting Slipstream. I saw an ad asking

for volunteers and decided why not

jump in. I met with Jim, then editor,

he sold me and the rest as they say

is history. Looking back, it’s the best

thing I could have done, though I will

say I never thought I would be Editor

of the club magazine.

BK: Interesting! That darn Jim Hirsch

did the same to me (laughing).

Well there you have it: as of this

writing, Kurt Douglas Scaggs not only

is the best Editor, but he is the recent

recipient of the James Shoffit Maverick

of the Year Award for his continued

volunteer work for our club. See page

14 for more on this award.

I’m proud to say Kurt and I have been

driving our friendship since 2013.

Mavs and Mochas: Granbury, Texas, November 14

by Jimmy Gallegos, Charity Chair

It was a bright sunshiny, breezy

November day in downtown Granbury

where 85 Porsche drivers gathered in

the town square. We were greeted by

John Hamilton from Autobahn with

more donuts and coffee than we could

Landon Stogner & Sons parking team

handled our parking needs.

Granbury is often called the smallest

big town in Texas with a beautiful

lake and over 700 hotel rooms and

Bed & Breakfast businesses. They are

Bank. This year Mavs and Mochas

Canned Food Drives have collected

over 4300 pounds of canned food to

give back to the communities where

we live. Chantel Tennyson was also

there to sell exclusive Patriot Paws

us feel at home were members of the

Chamber including President/CEO

Mike Scott (Mav member) and Tammy

Dooley, Chamber Director, and their

team. They ensured we had plenty of

parking around the town hall building

and asked downtown restaurants to

open early to meet our drivers. The

someone say Mavs Pop-up July 4th

great fun!

It was also a Mavs canned food

day and we collected 200 pounds of

canned food for the North Texas Food

T-shirts. T-shirts are still available for

purchase by contacting Chantel or

Jimmyg Gallegos. Mavs donated over

$300.00 in cash that will go directly

to Patriot Paws. Another example of

Maverick of the Year: Kurt Scaggs

by Carey Spreen, Region Vice President

Since 1976, the Maverick Region

President has named a person (and

sometimes a couple of people) as

having made outstanding contributions

to the region, as well as inspiring others

to do the same, during the past year.

This trophy was called the Richard F.

Selcer Memorial Award for Superior

Performance and Dedication until its

retirement in 2017, at which time it was

replaced by the James Shoffit

Maverick of the Year Award.

At the 2020 Founders Day

event, which took place at

Porsche Grapevine on Saturday,

December 5, the Maverick of

the Year award went to Kurt

Scaggs, the Managing Editor of

Slipstream, Maverick Region’s

monthly magazine.

Kurt, a member of

Maverick Region since 2013,

first joined the Slipstream

staff in January 2017 as the

Event Ad Designer, where he

designed and produced the

print and web ads for our upcoming

events. When then-Editor Jim Hirsch

made plans to step down in at the end of

2017, he had already recognized Kurt’s

abilities as a graphic designer, and was

able to convince Kurt to take over the

reins at Slipstream. The transition

and hand-off of the Managing Editor

position usually takes time, but by April

photo provided by Scott Scheetz

of 2018, Kurt was already at the helm,

continuing in his Event Ad Design role

until he could find a replacement.

Since that time, Kurt has made many

improvements to Slipstream, and has

won two National awards for it: first

place in Class VI (regions with 1,650 or

more members) in 2018 (awarded at the

2019 Porsche Parade), and second place

in 2019 (awarded on-line this year).

And of course, during the pandemic,

most of our events went on hiatus,

but not Slipstream – Kurt continued

to put together a 36-page issue every

month. He has also been working on

a wholesale revamp of Slipstream to

allow it to be published to the mavpca.

org website every month, while still

publishing a print version every two

months. This will save Maverick

Region a large amount in printing and

mailing costs.

Please join us in congratulating

Kurt Scaggs as the 2020 Maverick of

the Year!

Maverick Region Executive Board Election 2021

by Carey Spreen, Region Vice President

Per Maverick Region’s bylaws (https://www.mavpca.org/

about/bod/bylaws/), a three-person nominating committee

consisting of Jim Hirsch (Chair), Mike O’Hare, and Mike

Mahoney provided a list of candidates for the four Executive

Board positions, as follows:

President: Bill Kruder (incumbent)

Vice President: Carey Spreen (incumbent)

Treasurer: Chris Flaugh (incumbent)

Secretary: Olga Taylor

Mail-in ballots were available in Slipstream, and

were accepted until December 1, 2020. An in-person

election, open to all primary and affiliate members

of Maverick Region, was held at the Founders’ Day

celebration on December 5. The mail-in and in-person

ballots were counted at Founders’ Day as well, with

the official result that all four candidates were voted in

unanimously for 2021.

I’m sure I speak for the Executive Board by saying

thank you to all who voted, and that we look forward

to serving Maverick Region in 2021, which we hope

will be a return to a more “normal” (i.e. pre-pandemic)

year of events for all of us!

Hope Christmas 2020

by Bill Middleton

As expected, Hope Shelter

Christmas 2020 was – by necessity – a

bit different. The usual big party at the

nearby church community center had

to be cancelled. What to do??

Get creative – that’s what to do!

So – on December 9th, some of

Santa’s ‘elves’ went shopping, with lists

in hand, to fulfill the wishes of kids being

served by the Shelter that otherwise

would wake up to an empty tree. With

much dashing and dodging and ‘where

would they hide this thing?’, the ‘elves’

completed their mission – and the dash

to a Hope Christmas was underway!

From the 9th to the 12th, more ‘elves’

boxed, bagged, stuffed, wrapped, and

otherwise packed dolls, trucks, scooters,

and other toys and goodies of all shapes,

sizes, and colors – until an entire office

was nearly full of multicolored packages,

waiting for the big day!

Then – with great anticipation – on

Saturday the 12th, as arranged, Santa

in all his red and white finery, made an

early appearance in Mineral Wells, just

to deliver all those goodies to some very

special kids! As quickly as he’d appeared,

Santa – needing to fulfill the wishes of

other boys and girls – said his goodbyes,

wished everyone a Merry Christmas, and

disappeared – off to bring the magic of

Christmas to many others.

The Maverick Region has had

Hope Charities in Mineral Wells as its

regular charity for over 25 years now.

The Shelter provides a safe haven for

victims of domestic abuse as well as

counseling, legal services, a food and

clothing pantry, connections to medical

services and children’s aid services,

and many other forms of assistance. It

serves the five county area just west of

Fort Worth, but has provided services

to those in need from the DFW area

and as far away as the West Coast when

no other facility could help.

Each year, Maverick Region via

primarily Founders Day events and

the Silent Auction provides substantial

financial assistance to Hope. This year

especially, with Hope not being able to

hold its usual summer fundraisers, our

assistance filled a critical need in their

programming. Maverick Region gave

to Hope a little over $15,600.00 that

will keep their programs of providing

safe haven for those most in need alive

and well for another year.

We couldn’t do it without all of

YOU!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

If you’d like more information about

Hope Inc., and the Region’s involvement

with them, please contact the Charity

Chair, Jim Gallegos.

You can test your

of ties, a random drawing determines the winner.

Here are the questions and answers for the November

items from the past. Question 5 had two correct answers

(c or d), so credit was given for either answer. The winner

this month was Warren Horgan, getting all 5 of 5 correct.

Honorable Mention goes to Richard Cross, Cyril Reif, and

Bill Kruder, who also got all 5

correct; the winner was chosen

by random drawing.

Oversteer: Letter from the Editor

by Kurt Scaggs, Managing Editor

We’ve just wrapped up what was certainly a unique

year in the history of the Maverick Region. Virtual Happy

hours and socially distanced drives though the countryside.

These things don’t just happen on their own though. We

owe Claudia and Jeff Reynolds thanks for toiling away and

recruiting such great online hosts. Special recognition goes to

Frank Zack for making sure we had enough drinks to make

it through quarantine. Our volunteer chairs remained busy

last year despite the restrictions. Tours toured, rallies rallied,

autocross...crossed. and we generally made the best of it. We

even squeezed in a car show.

I’d like to thanks a few of our Slipstream contributors that

I can always count on to bring you interesting, informative

stories. Peter Wen began contributing Maverick Marktpreis

August of 2018 and for over 2 years he has highlighted the

values of the cars we love. Not a month has passed that I

haven’t learned something from his article. Thank you Peter.

Our President, Bill Kruder, began his monthly column in

September of 2016. That’s a lot of coffee Bill. Although I

think you might be running out of interesting folks to talk to

if this month is any indication, I do look forward to what you

have for us in 2021.

Many talented folks willing to contribute are reason this

publication is possible. Names like Rob Turner, Joann Talty,

Mark Schnoerr, Mike O’Hare and Michael Baynton probably

sound familiar and we’re lucky to have them. There is one

person that works behind the scenes every month to keep the

quality high and the word butchering to a minimum. Carey

Spreen is the content editor, and I literally could not do any of

this without him. The next drink is on me Carey.

Next month, Slipstream Online will launch (with any

luck.) As has been mentioned elsewhere in this month’s

issue, things will be changing a little for 2021. We will still

be publishing Slipstream in printed form on the odd months.

Even months will now be online only. The reason for this

is twofold. First, the obvious financial savings will allow us

to have more flexibility in bringing you more high quality

events. If Founders Day is a preview of the things to come,

I’d say we’re in good shape. The second reason is to allow

us to bring you relevant information about the club and club

events more quickly and accurately. Slipstream Online will

not replace mavpca.org, it will simply give a new place to see

what’s going on with your club.

I’m looking forward to getting back in the groove so to

speak, and enjoying some time with my Porsche friends. I

can’t wait to see you out there so we can enjoy the drive!
