Maverick Region Tours are gatherings of PCA members and guests who meet up at a defined starting location and drive together, along an interesting route, to enjoy a unique place or destination. Tours generally last about three hours and run around 60-100 miles in length. Come join the fun and see this rolling car show!
For the 2018 season we have six tours spaced throughout the year. All of the tours are "near to home", and provide members with a beautiful scenic drive to a fun destination! All PCA members can participate in a tour for FREE.
Our Tourmeisters are Mark Pitarresi and Tom Gomer. To obtain more information on the Tours, please e-mail them at: email@example.com.
"Wine M Up, Blow M Out!" - The Midas Hill Vineyard Tour
Sunday, March 25, 2018 - 10am - 1pm
3070 N Goliad Street
|Finish:||Mitas Hill Vineyard
230 Vineyeard Hill Lane
McKinney, TX 75071
Our first Tour, "Wine M Up, Blow M Out!" is scheduled for Sunday, March 25th, which is the first official weekend of spring. We have a great drive lined up, and it's a new route! The roads on this tour are the most underpopulated that I have experienced on a Maverick Tour, well at least since I have been attending them. You will experience a great country drive in the less-populated areas northeast of Dallas. At the time this article was written, there was no construction on this route. The Tour starts at Tom Thumb, 3070 N Goliad Street, in Rockwall,TX 75087. We will start the First Timers' Drivers' Briefing at 9:45 am. We recommend first time tour attendees to arrive no later than 9:30 so they have time to get signed in and listen to the First Timers' Drivers' Briefing.
Most of our tour attendees arrive early to socialize and check out all the different types of Porsche's that attend these tours. Arriving early also helps our volunteers in signing everyone in on time. Our normal Drivers' Briefing will begin at 10:00, and then we will head for our destination shortly afterward. The drive is 71.5 miles and will last approximately an hour and forty-five minutes. Our Tour ends at Mitas Hill Vineyard, 230 Vineyeard Hill Lane, in McKinney, TX 75071.
Registration for this tour will be different than past tours. You will need to register at https://clubregistration.net/events/signUp.cfm/event/8949 . Registration will open up one mouth before the tour. If you don't already have an account with Clubregistration.net you will need to follow the instructions on Clubregistration.net to set up an account. Once registered we will send out an email on the third day before the tour with all the information that you will need to attend.
A second change that we have implemented in the tour program is the Vintage Class. This new class will offer a more relaxed driving experience within that group. It will be your choice to drive in the Vintage Class or the Modern Class regardless of what type of Porsche you drive. You will be able to make this selection when signing up for the Tour.
We will be accepting donations to Patriot Paws Charity at the sign-in table. The mission of Patriot Paws is to train and provide service dogs of the highest quality a no cost to disabled American Veterans and others with mobile disabilities. You can learn more about our clubs preferred charity at http://mav.pca.org/about/charity/. We look forward to seeing everyone on this Tour!
