A	Balmy	Breakfast	
Kickoff	For	October
Story	&	Photos	by		John	Alfenito

         n unseasonably tropical morning greeted the 139
         members and guests at our October Camarillo Breakfast.
         Seventy-seven Porsches, from 356s and 914s to GT3s and
Panameras, filled the Way-Point Café lawn, once again creating an
instant car show.
                                                                                SBAG’s Walt Branscome (left) and author Randy Leffingwell
    President Dave Stone called the meeting to order and
introduced author Randy Leffingwell, who is writing another book
about Porsche. Randy, who has asked for SBR assistance in the
past, did so again, in an advance solicitation for member cars to be
photographed for the new project. Several members volunteered,
and our region’s Porsches will be well represented when Randy
publishes the book in 2011.

   Janice Herndon, our Membership Chair, introduced new
members Tim Martin from Thousand Oaks, and Don & Claudia
Earl of Oxnard. First-time breakfast goers Steve & Amy Keneally of
Montecito and Bruce Frasco from West Hills, a recent transfer from
the L.A. Region, were also recognized. Jeannette Smith brought a
special guest - Taekwondo Master Kim from Buson, South Korea.
                                                                                From Oxnard, new members Don & Claudia Earl

Story	&	Photos	by	Nicolas	Liakas

         journey of discovery awaited 20

a gastronomic lesson. We were in search of
the origin of Santa Maria Style Barbeque,
and we found it!
    This unique style of preparing, serving
and enjoying tri-tip is named for the small
city that launched the feast almost a half

Merrick for making the easy 10-minute
hiking trail to the falls, where the water
cascades 66 feet down a mossy, fern-
covered sandstone wall and into a pool. For
those who decided to skip this hike, you
missed a very beautiful section of the park.
And there was even a little waterfall action
to heighten our visual pleasure. This park
is strongly recommended for a return trip
in early spring when the falls are at their
high water mark or anytime after a rainfall.
Needless to say, it was a perfect ending to a
fun-filled day.

and it was above and beyond what everyone was expecting at an
    Fourth, the afternoon runs took a little longer, but we were still
able to have everyone, including the volunteers, out of the airport
at a reasonable time. The timing crew, Jeff Parker and Jeff Merrick,
paid special attention to the operation of the equipment so that
everyone’s times were recorded and the cone counts were verified
and scored correctly. They really did a great job making sure all of
the data was efficiently gathered and scored.
    Last but certainly not least, the club wants to thank all of the
volunteers who helped with the autocross events throughout this
past year. Without your help, none of the events would have been
a success for the club, nor would they have been as much fun for
the participants who attended. It’s not just the co-chairs and the
timing crew that make these events happen. Thanks to all who
step up and do the tasks, such as setting up the course, manning
the check-in and cleaning up at the end of the day. There are a lot
of you out there who work in the background and do it just because
that’s the way you are.
    Many thanks also go to our great sponsor, Rusnak Westlake
Porsche. We hope to see you next season! =

 Apparently They’re Quite Sensitive This Time of Year
 Testy	Turkey	Takes	Offense                                                                             ARE YOU
     At	September’s	Gimmick	Rally,	as	everyone	was	arriving	
 at	the	picnic	grounds,	Nick	Liakas	decided	to	pay	a	visit	to	                                           TALKIN’
 “the	facilities”	about	100	yards	to	the	north	of	the	parking	
 site.	As	he	approached	the	entrance	to	the	men’s	room,	he	                                             TO ME?
 noted	that	it	was	blocked	by	a	flock	of	wild	turkeys.	As	Nick	
 reached	for	the	door,	the	tom	turkey	felt	threatened	and	
 sensed	the	necessity	to	protect	his	harem.	It	did	not	give	
 any	ground,	but	rather	stared	at	Nick	and	proceeded	to	
 aggressively	challenge	the	presence	of	another	male	figure.	
 Ignoring	all	efforts	by	Nick	to	“scare	it	away,”	tom	was	ready	
 to	plant	his	first	nasty	bite	on	Nick’s	right	leg	when	a	brave	
 soul	rescued	our	past	president.	
     Yes,	Janice	Herndon,	all	5’5”	and	100	pounds	of	her,	
 recognized	the	danger	and	swiftly	removed	her	spiked	
 sandals,	hurling	them	like	a	fastball,	landing	one	on	
 the	belly	of	the	beast.	The	flustered	fowl	quickly	beat	a	
 hasty	retreat	into	nearby	bushes	along	with	its	female	
     Thus	our	6-foot	195-pound	distressed	male	was	saved	
 from	the	humiliation	of	becoming	turkey	bait. 3:17 PM Page 1
