March Miatas for Breakfast

We were seven for breakfast in Martinez. Here are some pics:

BMW Ultimate Drive II

We had a good time driving around Martinez for a good cause the other day. Brian and I drove 9 different cars for a total of 125 miles. After our first lap in a Z4 Coupe, who should pull in but John & Jackie. They were driving the new 3 Series Hardtop Convertible, which we that finagled our way in for a lap. Later in the afternoon we ran into Stacey who was there driving a bunch of cars too (there is no picture of him, as by the time we saw him the camera battery was dead.)

A Day At The Track

Where: Road Atlanta

When: Saturday, March 17th, following the MMC breakfast.

Event Coordinator: Carol Haff 706-868-5795

For anyone who is available on Saturday, John is going to be racing at Road Atlanta. He is going to be running Time Trials with the NASA folks. There are somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 who have signed up for the weekend event, and they will be running high performance driving events, time trials and road races. You will see all different kinds of cars, with many Miatas, corvettes, mustangs, even a Ferrari, and everything in between. John is scheduled to run at 10:30, 1:30 and 4:10, with 20-minute sessions each. We invite you to come down and do some spectating and walking around. Weather permitting, Rudy & and Patti are driving down after the club breakfast, and they have graciously agreed to lead if anyone wants to follow. Please note they are charging a $10/person admission fee to get in the gate for all spectators. We would love to see you there!

March Meeting Minutes

The nasty weather kept a few people at bay, including the Secretary, so Patti stepped up and scribbled the meeting minutes on several napkins. Here is the best guess as to what she wrote down:

Attendees: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Bill & Bonnie Baugh, Jackie & John Nicholls, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth, Kurt & Karen Breitinger & Family, Gail & Miller Butler and Stacy Timmerman

Treasurer’s Report: $1,347.49

Old and New Business:

  1. Kurt might want a tech day change to March 24. He will let us know.
  2. The March 17th breakfast is still on the calendar. Details are posted on the web site.
  3. Auto Fair is off the calendar unless someone wants to take the lead.
  4. Kurt added Walter Mitty on April 28. He will come up with some details. Watch this space.
  5. Stacy talked to Rachel at the Snowcap. She has a Sponsor for the Saturday Cruise-Ins – Yearwood Speed & Customs in Evans, GA. Gascar has agreed to be the permenant “hosts”, but there will still be a Featured Club. Rachel wanted us there on May 26 from 6-8. Since it is Memorial Day weekend, Stacy will see if he can get a different date.
  6. The April monthly meeting is changed to April 12 because of Master’s week. It will be in Martinez at the Mia Rancho on Belair and Columbia Road. Hopefully John Haff (actually Carol) will arrange for the room!!
