Updated: Miatas for Breakfast – September 15, 2007

Location: McCormick United Methodist Church

McCormick, SC

Time: 7:00 – 9:00

We will depart from the gas station parking lot adjacent to I-20 Exit 1 in South Carolina (Martintown Rd. exit) around 7 a.m. Our PRESIDENT, John Nicholls, will lead a caravan of hungry Miata drivers and passengers to the GOLD RUSH DAYS FESTIVAL in beautiful McCormick, SC where our first order of business will be our monthly breakfast for only $5.00 each. This will be followed by a parade at 10:00 and art exhibits, music, and more food. Thanks to John for saving the “breakfast day” since both initial targets did not pan out for September, but will be available in coming months.

Breakfast Etiquette: Defer to Regulars, Sit Where We Fit, Order Breakfast, Tip Your Waitstaff

September Meeting Minutes

Where: Vinny’s Pizza in North Augusta, SC
When: September 6, 2007
Who: Donna & Brian Bogardus, John Bowles, Kurt Breitinger, Gail & Miller Butler, John & Carol Haff, Jackie & John Nicholls, Dave & Autumn Schumacher, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth, and Dave Winkler.

Treasurer’s Report: $1,551.49


  1. We had guests and they were introduced around. First was our Bug Splat near attendee, Lonnie Best and a friend of his, Jacob Honda. Next was Charlotte Avant who later on stopped being a guest and became family when she and her husband joined the Club.
  2. Past events were reviewed:
    • The Bug Splat winners took a well deserved bow.
  3. Future events were previewed:
    • The September breakfast is on the 15th, the place is still TBA, so watch this space.
    • Dave Winkler’s Warner Robbins trip is this Saturday.
    • When Brian asked if any one planned on going to the Gap on the 21st the response was underwhelming.
    • October’s meeting will be at Mi Rancho in Aiken.
  4. The Low Country Club in Charleston is holding a regional event next May 1st thru 4th, Miatas Doin’ the Charleston. Dave Schumacher has volunteered to lead the drive down. They are limiting participation, so make your plans soon.
  5. September’s 50/50 raffle winners were Charlotte Avant ($10) and Carol Haff (an insulated Zoom-Zoom lunch sack.)
