June Meeting Minutes

Where: Sno Cap Drive In, North Augusta, SC
When: June 2, 2011
Who: Bill & Bonnie Baugh, Brian & Donna Bogardus, Kurt, Karen & Lindsay Breitinger, Gail & Miller Butler, Larry & Rita Garner, Jackie Nicholls, David & Autumn Schumacher, Denny Smith, Stacey Timmerman, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth and Dave Winkler.

  • TREASURER’S REPORT: Same As Last Month, AKA: $1,195.78

    1. Past Events:
      1. Breakfast in Millen – Five cars made the trip and breakfast was good even if slow to arrive at the table. The drive to and from was pleasant as we managed to avoid most of the heat of day.
      2. Dave & Autumn attended a regional event in northwest Arkansas on the same weekend as the Club Breakfast. They nicknamed it the Flooding and Destruction Tour because their route to the event passed through quite a bit of territory damaged by the recent nasty weather in the southeast. The Schumachers were one of 120 cars that attended from 38 states and Canada.

    1. Upcoming Events:
      1. Breakfast & Ridge Peach Parade – June 18th – Meet at the Food Lion at Exit 5. We will leave there at 7:30 sharp for breakfast in Edgefield. After eating we will drive by Billy’s Superstore in Trenton to pick up any other Miatas before lining up for the parade.
      2. Ft. Gordon Fireworks – Friday July 1st – Same great event, but on a Friday and no meeting. Details are being worked out as we speak.
      3. July Meeting – Coming soon to somewhere near you.
    2. Officer Nominations – We managed to drag out commitments from two individuals for officer posts and another was nominated in absentia by his spouse. The three were then voted into office without anyone opposing the slate. Rudy Wilmoth is the new President, Rita Gardner is going to be the Secretary and John Nichols will be the Treasurer. The Vice President spot will remain open, to be filled as necessary.

The meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted:
Donna Bogardus
Club Secretary

Ten Years Ago This Month – June 2001

Pool Party

Date: Saturday, June 16, 2001
Time: 11:00 AM
Place: Georgia Welcome Center
Members Attending: Brian Bogardus, Donna Bogardus, Jim Creer, Judy Creer, Leroy Delionbach, Carol Haff, John Haff, Rudy Wilmoth and Brian Wynne.
Guests Attending: Mike Holland and Taylor Holland.

Jim met Brian, Donna, Brian and Rudy at the Welcome Center. After a short, by Club standards, chat period he led us over to his house. Just as our group arrived at 4047 Fairfax Street, up pulled John and Carol.

Judy welcomed all of us there and handed everyone something to carry out to the pool. John was elected cook this year and fired up the grill. Leroy showed up shortly afterwards. Soon we were eating and swimming and having a great time.

Jim got a call from wayward Mike, seems he was lost somewhere near Gordon Hwy. Mike and his daughter drove over from Florence to go for a swim and also to glean some Greddy Turbo installation tips. Mike has one on order for his ‘91 BRG and was going to install it himself like Jim had done on his car. Taylor made herself right at home in the pool with the rest of us Miata-Aquanauts.

Brian B. couldn’t get anybody else interested in a Big-Splash Contest so he had one amongst himself. Naturally he won.

Usually we are hapless sitting ducks against Jim and his water cannon, but Rudy came prepared this year. He was armed with a model XP 310 Super Soaker, sporting two compression chambers, a pressure gauge, a wide, easy to grip pump handle and a big capacity tank. While the Super Soaker is awsome it is still a little under powered compared to the “Cannon.”

Food, swimming, diving and water fights, top it all off with some of John Haff’s XL5000 Super Calorie cheesecake and life doesn’t get any better. Sorry you missed it.

Thank You Card
