Drifting Back – June 2010 by Larry Wilson 30 Years Ago (June 1980) Harvey Cain chaired the June 1 Sacramento Valley Sports Car Council (SVSCC) Autocross by SVR thus making a successful career-change from rallymaster. Pre-event publicity paid off with 101 entries including 25 Porsches. The day started cold and overcast, and the first car out, a Lotus Super 7, spun on the first corner of the practice lap at Parking Lot A, Cal Expo. The Top Time of Day (TTOD) went to Emmett Wilder, Redwood Region, in his muchmodified 914-6. In addition to Emmett, other class-winning PCAers were Shelia McDade, Kirk Bradford, Ted Atlee, Mike Willis, Vicki Willis, Larry Wilson, Pat Wilson, Ted Colbert, and Linda Mitchell. Also finishing in the top-ten overall were Dwight Mitchell and Jim McDade, both driving the modified 914-6 Bates-McDademobile. Al and Kathy King were among the 30 SVR workers who helped make the day a smashing (not literally) success. On June 14, SVR held a tennis tournament before its regular dinner meeting at the Tennis Club Hotel in Davis. The competition was strong and continued through six rounds of tennis. In the Women’s class, the top finishing order was Connie Speicher (44 points), Donna Williams (35 points), and Laura Adams (33 points). In the Men’s class, the top finishing order was Jim Karver (40 points), Gene

Page 4

Speicher (31 points), and David Williams (30 points). PCAers in 13 Porsches embarked June 21 on the Chico Tour and Picnic, chaired by Allen Weddle. This was a joint event with members of Shasta Region. There was a variety of SVR Porsches from Larry and Pat Wilson’s 1961 356B to the 1978 911SC of Jim and Neva Everhart. At the picnic, seven or so Shasta cars joined the group including their president, Roy Parker, who exchanged diplomat immunities with SVR’s president, Rik Larson. SVR members Brian and Lora Lewis had the picnic site ready with icedowned beer and pop, and the BBQ fire ready to go. Mel and Betty Pasta placed LAST in the tour quiz winning a bottle of wine. Steve and Lori won the quiz earning themselves a set of Bosch driving lights donated by Superior Porsche-Audi of Redding.

20 Years Ago (June 1990) About a dozen die-hard potential 911 mechanics showed up at the June 3 SVR Tech Session to learn all there is to 911 valve adjustment at Dwight and Linda Mitchell’s Autosport Technology. Three hours later, several members muttered, “I’ll never try that, but at least I now appreciate why a tune-up costs so much.” Suzanne Gallicho was the only woman student. Dwight made sure that everyone had a chance to adjust vales and get the correct “feel” of the drag of the feeler-gauge. SVR’s tech chairman, Herb Hoover, and Autosport technician, Jim Vener helped with the presentation. Greg Peart, Steve Taggert, and Jim McMahen were also students. June 16 was SVR Picnic Day with Herb Hoover in charge. The weather, unfortunately, was on the cool-side and prevented Herb and Jan from showing off their brand new Monaco Grand Prix T-shirts. It was not too cool to prevent former SVR-members David and Janice Witteried from South Ogden, Utah, from joining the group. Eight cars departed on a leisurely tour through Auburn and Forest Hill to French Meadows where Mark Davis joined the tour and the lake-side picnic. Mark and Starla’s 912 performed flawlessly with well over 100 grand on the odo. No undue excitement except for a bee flying under Allen Weddle’s shirt. Not enough wind for Sally Boeck’s kite. Herb said he followed SVR tour guidelines to the letter: “Have fun and make things simple.” Everyone agreed, it was and Herb did.

directional advice from Mike Willis, Bob Peake, and Rik Larson, on their way for short blast up the hill to Gold Bug Mine and Park. In downtown Placerville, a Porsche driver simply got in line and joined the group, he said, because it looked like an interesting bunch. At Gold Bug Mine, they picked up two more SVR cars (as planned). The leisurely picnic lunch, after touring the 65-degree historic gold mine, gave all a great opportunity for a bit of socializing. Then it was off to Fairplay, Somerset, and other points in the Shenandoah Valley in route to Perry Creek Vineyards and Latcham Winery for cheese sampling and wine tasting. Thanks to Marja Strutz and Rich Burke for obtaining the great door prizes handed out. Shelagh Matthews won a bottle of chocolate and port wine fudge syrup (all in the same bottle?). Last stop was Montevina Winery. More drawings, more eating, and more wine tasting followed then it was home again, home again. . . .

SVR members shined at the June 23-29 Porsche Parade at Monterey. Mike Willis with his very nice Porsche was the only SVR-competitor in the concours and placed a very creditable 5th in a tough class. J. Toney and John Clever were in charge of the rally and did a great job (even if they did put the last checkpoint crew in poison oak). Rik Larson and Harvey Cain (equipped class) teamed-up to finish second overall in the rally with only a 32-second error (they would have won but for a tossed leg). Pat Wilson driving ShuBx, the orange 914-4 2.0, in the two-day Parade autocross at Laguna Seca, won her class and also received Top Time of Day (TTOD) #1 (Women) award after the first day. THE DRIFTER, Larry Wilson, editor, won its class in the PCA newsletter contest.

10 Years Ago (June 2000) Glen Brooksby chaired the June 3 SVR Autocross at Lot A, Cal Expo, and gave the 42 competing drivers a look at some of the course elements to be used for the Porsche Parade 2000 driving event at the same location in July. E.J. Fontaine drove especially good. He was behind Susan Fontaine most of the day. Facing his last run behind by .8 of a second, E.J. pulled out the stops and improved his time by 1.2 seconds and secured Top Time of Day (TTOD) by turning a lap at 49.799 seconds. Susan still had TTOD (Women) with a final lap of 50.144 seconds. SVR events typically draw a disproportionate number of rookie drivers. And, with instruction available, they learn a lot and do well. A good example was Terry Lindsey who had a 12.5-second improvement in lap-time during the day. The June 17 Mines and Wines Tour, chaired by Russ Hildebrand, struck gold according to the many pleased participants. Russ, and a dozen Porsches in tow, left the Nimbus Winery, with much

Yuba River Canyon - Graeagle New Member Tour - May 30 by Andy Hiroshima, SVR member since 2010 Memorial Day weekend May 30, 2010. What a day for a ride, especially in a Porsche! The day began as we gathered at Niello Porsche in Rocklin to begin the tour. Doug Klein gathered the group around the conference table, which happened to be a new Boxster. The Tour briefing began about 8:55 and we found out that there were 3 new people that have not been on a Club Tour. They were in for a real treat. We started with five Boxsters and six 911s. As an aside, we ended the tour with the same number of cars and people. At departure time, the temperature was holding steady at about 72 degrees. Our drive to Colfax was very nice, with light traffic, but it seemed slow since we were anticipating curves for the new riders to enjoy. Our expectations were soon met with beautiful roads and great company. The people were nice too. On our way to the first rest stop and group photo at Empire Mine State Park, we passed several wineries with filtered sunlight shining on the line of Porsches. The roads were lined with new spring vegetation, flowering Acacia bushes, Blue Bells and other wild flowers throughout the tour.

Lily & Andy Hiroshima

I’m a relatively new Club member, and I have been on a few tours, and it seems we pass a lot of wineries and bars. Is there a theme here? The location of many of these establishments is usually in a very picturesque setting or in historical buildings. They’re fun to see.

As we passed through Indian Valley, it was interesting to note that Native Americans summered here along the Yuba River for the past 4,000 years. They knew the best places. The road turned and twisted through the Yuba River canyon, and as we glanced to the water, it was so inviting, because the temperature was getting warmer. The temperature of the water was only 47 degrees. The next stop was Downieville. As we entered the town, it was fun as 11 Porsches drove through town, where many of the people there were twisting their heads and bodies to see the line of cars. Don’t you love a parade? Here we were able to get out of the cars for about a half hour. We discovered Downieville had a cute park by the river, an interesting Museum and quaint shops. Many of the buildings were made of shale and local rocks from the river and put together with sand and cement. A big shaker could level this town. Downieville was one of the richest Gold Discovery areas during the Gold Rush Era. For those of you that don’t like to clean house, the monument in town says that a woman while sweeping her dirt floor in the kitchen, found about $500 in gold. Maybe cleaning isn’t so bad. At 12:00 pm, a loud siren sounded from the Town Square, signaling the car club to get on the road. A few miles up the road, along the North Fork of the Yuba River, we had another group “Kodak” moment, overlooking the raging river and next to thousands of Blue Bells. What a view. Sierra City and Bassetts Station passed quickly on fun roads and spectacular scenery. I think we were all getting a bit hungry, but before we could have lunch, we made one more stop at the Sierra Buttes. Elev. 8,591’. The Buttes were covered in recent snow and were so beautiful to see. Looked like a giant banana split. Final stop was Graeeagle. A quaint little town on Hwy 89, with a nice park, but no tables. The story goes tables are removed, so Porsche owners wouldn’t loiter in the park. The weather, route and company were absolutely wonderful and a great place to have lunch and end the Tour. The ride home was almost as nice as the Tour, except the Tour Director was in the back heading for Truckee to visit the Bar of America. We all thank Doug and Alice for coordinating the Yuba River Tour. We had a great time. Thank You! Andy and Lily Hiroshima

Stirring the Pot with the Chief Spoon by Rik Larson, Vice President

They say that things comes in three’s. Sure enough we are sad to report the passing of three current or former members of SVR. Last month a tribute to Marv Smith was made. This month we have the passing of Kern Breaux and JR Evinger. Kern and Cindi Breaux most recently served as the co-chairs for CRAB 31 in 2004. JR Evinger was editor of the DRIFTER in 2009 and the first 4 months of 2010. All will be deeply missed for their support of the region over the years. Jim and Linda McMahen, chairs of CRAB 35, have announced that the Premier Porsche Weekender will be held on April 29 thru May 1, 2011. Mark your calendars now. More details as they develop the schedule and events with the CRAB 35 team. And as reported in the Goodie Store column, the new Zone 7 badges are now available. They are slightly smaller than the previous versions but very beautiful. You need to provide your own mounting hardware and of course, a Porsche. Will be interesting to see what kinds of ideas get shared as to where and how to mount them on the newer 911’s. Checkout the latest eCoupon from Porsche (see the ad on page xx). It is only good til the end of July. It is similar to the 20% coupon that was available at Niello a couple of months ago but it is now limited to just parts (like almost all kinds of parts and gift items). Check out the details for the conditions. Details are available at www.pca.org. Registration for the Porsche Escape weekend in September closes at the end of July. And reports from the folks up in British Columbia indicate the availability of hotel rooms is getting tight. Porsche Escape is a social event (tours, social, etc.) that is usually held on the opposite coast of the annual Porsche Parade. And the Porsche Parade in 2011 is being held in Savannah, Georgia so it would seem that the 2011 Porsche Escape will likely be west of the Mississippi. Don’t forget to check out the Zone 7 website for event happenings and results from competitive events. It is at www.zone77.org. And of course the SVR website at www.derporsche.net has links to that site as well as details about our own events and pictures too! The SVR Der Porsche Talk forum is starting to get a little more action (I posted 3 or 4 items myself this month). Check it out and register to join in on the conversations. You can find the link on the SVR website at www.derporsche.net And check out the Monterey Autobaun Concours (page 16). It will feature Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes Benz.

May 5, 2010 SVR Board Meeting Minutes by Kevin R. Dougherty, SVR Secretary

President Cookie Anderson called the meeting to order at 6:35 PM. Attending: Cookie Anderson, Doug Klein, Helen Ashuckian, Rik Larson, Kevin Dougherty, Phil Wood, Dan Rowland, John Murphy, Kim Nelson, Kyle Gong, Ron Riley, Frederick Rauch, Bob & Beth Jacobson and Jerry Cupler. Minutes: The April minutes were reviewed and accepted. Thanks again to Rik Larson for taking those. OLD BUSINESS California Auto Museum: Kim Nelson gave a brief (for Kim) overview of the CAM (formally known as the Towe Auto Museum). Kim has requested that we continue our membership after a spat regarding an SVR member whose free admission was declined. CAM has asked for a complete member list and SVR has refused to turn it over because of PCA member confidentiality rules. The long-term solution (2011 and beyond) is to publish CAM “coupons” in the 2011 Member Directory. Discussions will continue for short-term (2010) alternatives insuring SVR access to CAM without turning over our membership list to a third-party. Drifter: Rik Larson received all of the Drifter equipment from the former editor this morning, inventoried it and handed it off to the new Drifter editor Kyle Gong who Cookie introduced to the board at the beginning of the meeting. Discussion ensued regarding the software, registrations, updates, etc. Kyle will take a look at it all and advise the board if there are problems. NEW BUSINESS Transition Meeting Date November 13, 2010 Proposed PCA Membership Dues Increase: Phil questioned National’s study that indicated non-profit membership count was unaffected by dues increases given that our empirical data is the exact opposite. John Murphy also observed that National’s arguments were weak and unsupported by fact, and furthered asked whether this was a real vote or a done deal. Of the dozen or so reasons for the dues increase, the only remotely good one was that dues hadn’t increased since1999. The board rejected the National dues increase. Board Positions from 2 to 4 years: Cookie proposed a by-laws change to increase the length of time a board member can serve. The board bantered about this subject for a few minutes and scraped the idea. Goodie Store: Cookie spoke with the guy who supplies a lot of our items about getting different items. After several suggestions from various board members, Cookie decided she would continue to talk with him regarding this matter.

Tour: Bob Jacobson asked the board’s blessing for a tour to Reno to see Ranson Webster’s Porsche Collection. Date TBD at a later. The cost will be $5.00 per car. Top Notch Dinner Meeting: Ron Riley presented the board with the idea of a Prime Rib dinner (with a vegetarian plate available) at Charles B. Mitchell winery in Fair Play. Looking at Saturday the 28th of August due to all of the other events going on in August. Wine tasting at 5:00, band from 5:30 until 8:30 with dinner at about 7:00. Cost would be $28.00 per person. Several members had questions regarding the cost and cancellation policies. Ron will get those questions answered and report back. BOARD MEMBER REPORTS Charity (Tambra Kroetz): No report Competition (Frederick Rauch, Bob Peake & Helen Ashuckian): Frederick reported that Laguna Seca is a go and will generate more money for the club. The upcoming Autocross at Infineon is looking good as well. The Competition Committee is in the black so far this year. They are looking into pre-registration for future autocross events. Doug Klein gave a brief report on the trip to Thunderhill last weekend and read a couple of complimentary emails from participants of the event. Kim Nelson gave a brief talk regarding the upcoming concours, tour, test drives and dinner on Saturday June 26th at Niello. Sunday the 27th will be the concours. Helen handed out an email she received on the Fireball Run for information only. She then gave an overview of her upcoming Great Search and Discovery Tour on August 7th. It will be held in the south area of Sacramento County. Sounds like fun! Advertising (Mike Willis): Phil Wood advised 2010 advertising revenue of $3,350 had been collected and the remaining two invoices probably weren’t going to be paid any time soon. SVR also accepted one advertiser cancellation resulting in total advertising being $700 less than expected. Drifter (Rik Larson) See old business above. Financial Report (Phil Wood): With only four months of SVR financial history, Phil indicated current spending (excluding advertising which will be $0 going forward) is about $600/month more than income. Several charts were presented showing no one operation is singularly responsible. When asked by Rik why this is happening, Phil produced a three-year membership history showing almost constant decline in membership and offered that perhaps spending is too high for the reduced club size. Frederick confidently reassured Phil that upcoming DE events would contribute $2,500 to our coffers. New Members (Dan Rowland): The new member tour is this Saturday. A budget was approved.

continued from page 13 Goodie Store (Cookie Anderson): No Report Membership Director (Doug Klein): There are 556 regular members, 451 affiliate members and 5 dual members for a total of 1,012 members. PCA has been very helpful with member’s questions and requests. Social (Helen Ashuckian): Beginning July 1st, the club will require a $2.00 fee added to any event cost, such as dinners or tours. For dinners the $2.00 will be per person. For other events, it will be per person or per car, depending on whether the event fee is per person or per car. The November dinner meeting will be the 15th at Buonarroti Ristorante. Webmaster (John Murphy): John went into a brief dissertation about putting the bylaws and other “governance” things on the web. More importantly, he called for members to send him materials they would like available for review on, and/or download from, your website. Examples include “How to …” guidance (put on a tour, arrange a dinner, etc.), fun things to do (tour instructions, rally instructions that make good tours, places to go, etc.) and fun things to look at (Porsche, autocross, DE videos, etc.) No special format needed; he’ll take what he can get. Links acceptable. These will help balance out

bylaws, policy documents, regional forms, et al. Phil asked John why the proposal to replace the Goodie Store with Charlton Commerce had ceased. John redirected the question to Cookie who wasn’t satisfied with Charlton. After discussion, Cookie agreed to reevaluate Charlton. Vice President (Rik Larson): Rik made mention of a video a Redwood Region member made of the rally we had a couple of weeks ago. He talked about the updated calendar and a few new zone events added. Make sure Rik gets insurance certificate requests 3-4 weeks before the event. Rik also discussed year-end awards and the large amount of them. Event surveys were discussed. Cookie asked the board to give it some thought for next month. Past President (Mike Willis): No report President (Cookie Anderson): No Report Secretary: Kevin advised the board that he would not be here for the June board meeting and asked for a volunteer to take the minutes. Rik Larson stepped up to the plate. Thanks Rik! Meeting adjourned: 9:30 P.M.

Next Meeting: RPM Wednesday, June 2, 2010 at 6:30 PM.

Around the Corner Our annual charity auction is scheduled for Sunday, September 12th at the Folsom City Zoo (well really just outside in their nice shaded pavilion). Chairperson Tambra Kroetz is busy planning this great event and soliciting members for some unique auction items. Last year we had a French dinner for four (provided by the McDades and Barbarie Flores); a cabin stay offered by the Kramers, and a Lake Tahoe Christmas cabin stay. Our beneficiary again this year is the Folsom Zoo. The 32nd running of the Carrera de Sierra rally is planned for Saturday, September 18th. Start will be a Niello Porsche. We will finish about 6 hours later after winding our way thru the Sierra Nevada mountains using little know high country and foothill roads east of Highway 49. Finish will be in the Gold Rush country south of Placerville. Rallymaster Richard Wetzel has been hard at work laying out a course for everyone to enjoy. He has also lined up a number of sponsors. They include Niello Porsche, Frank’s Automotive and First National Bank. The Mendocino Tour is coming together again. This 3-day, 2-night event is scheduled for the first weekend in November (5th thru 7th to be exact). You can make your own reservations or check with Rik Larson for various options that we have used in the past (Hill House, Little River Inn, and MacCallumn House). We will again be joined by the folks from Redwood Region on Saturday. You can’t miss this last big tour of the year. The SVR Christmas Party is scheduled for Saturday, December 12th and the site will be the Whitney Oaks Golf Club. This is a change from previously published information. If you attended the February dinner hosted by Dave and Kaye Mitchell, then you know the place. Cookie Anderson will be the chair for this event. Don’t miss it!

Rib Cook-Off June 16, 2010

Our 2nd Annual Rib Cook-Off was a HUGE success this year for all! Not only did we have great weather but Great Ribs and Great Company! Social hour started at five and ribs kicked off at six… For the most part our chefs cooked at home this year, equipment getting too large, various injuries, etc… But it all worked out in the end. I have to thank all the Chefs, the Wildman Team, Joe Schumacher, the Team of Jerry and Cookie, Kim Kinder and Dave Hoffman! There is a lot of preparation that goes into this event and I am very happy you all participated and everyone enjoyed the ribs… Of course, none of this is possible without the generous contribution of the home of Jerry and Cookie, tents and all the help before and after the event. That being said many thanks to the McKees’, Jim Kinnicutt, Dave Hoffman, The Leights’ and the Smiths’ for the setup and cleanup! I also need to thank all the Great Chefs that brought the wonderful side dishes and dessert. I don’t think anyone went home hungry, Kudos to all. Of course, we just recognize those that placed first, second and third in the overall people’s choice contest.

• First Place, David Hoffman • Second Place, Kim Kinder • Third Place, Joe Schumacher We look forward to the next year and have an even larger turn out and more Chefs in the mix to make it a little more competitive! Susan Duvall-Serota David Hoffman

Passion – Why we’re members! by Phil Wood, SVR Treasurer

A question was posed the other day about SVR Membership value. “Why bother?” this person asked. “I can download the Drifter without being a member, I can surf the website without being a member and I’ll bet I could crash any Tour or Dinner without being a member and paying membership dues!” Responding to this kind of challenge requires steering clear of material value comparisons. Anyone who owns a Porsche knows that the value of his/her Porsche is not transportation – The value proposition has more to do with passion, emotion, and yes, infatuation! The person in the previous paragraph can, and probably will, download a free copy of the Drifter. But without passion he probably won’t download a second, nor surf the website, nor crash the next Tour nor Dinner. Too bad – His loss. It is SVR membership passion that explained the 80 plus people in attendance earlier this year at the February 5 Event Planning Meeting – The room was buzzing with members just itching to plan, coordinate, sponsor or direct some event or activity for their fellow members. Want to see passion in action? Talk to the 80 people in attendance that evening. (Trust me. They weren’t there for the Round Table Pizza! <sigh>) The organization needs to tap that passion again. Believe it or not we’re already looking for 2011 Director and Committee Chair nominations. Formal recruiting (?) starts in August but now is the time to find out what skills and passions (?) exist within our 500-plus member community. No position is sacred except perhaps “Past President.” We can always use members with computer skills – Our membership files, communication, and finances all rely on computer programs. Management skills? Improving club efficiencies leads to better funded events. Writer or Photographer? I guarantee the membership would enjoy reading and seeing events recounted in Drifter articles. Personality? How about helping with event planning? Automotive contacts? Advertising, event planning and tours could use your expertise. Don’t have time for a position? There are event coordinators always looking for an extra pair of hands. You get the idea – Anyone with passion, whatever it is, is welcome. Not sure how to proceed? Start by looking in the Membership Directory (mailed earlier this year), the website or any Drifter for the number or email address of any Director/Chair. Email/phone them – All would be happy to share the activities and benefits of participation. It’s worth the call!

Cars for Sale

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo. 105k miles. Clean title. This car has been modified to perform well on the track but is still street legal and smog friendly (it always does the fast pass).
