On January 30, 1993, at 3:00 in the afternoon, a small group of people met at the Gibbs Memorial Library in Evans, Georgia. There were twelve people present, all from different walks of life: different ages, different lifestyles and different tastes. The one thing they had in common was a love for their Miatas.

On January 25, 2003, at 7:00 in the evening, a small group of people met at #10 Downing Street in Aiken, South Carolina. There were twenty-five people present, all from different walks of life: different ages, different lifestyles and different tastes. The one thing they did have in common besides their Miatas was a love of good food.

Of the 12 founding members, two are still in the Club and both were in attendance, Kathleen Kennedy and Anita Wylds.

The Club had reserved the entire back room where a double fireplace blazed, putting out a nice and welcome bit of warm air on this chilly night. There were 4 tables scattered about, each set for eight. Each place contained a souvenir menu and a dizzying array of utensils and glassware.

Offered up for our palette’s delight was a shared appetizer plate at each table – filled with instantly recognizable, semi-recognizable and who knows what food items. A delightful garden salad followed. The main course consisted of your choice of: sea bass, a pork or a beef tenderloin. I can’t speak for the pork, but my beef was wonderful and the bite of bass I had, melted in your mouth leaving behind smiling taste buds. Dessert was your choice of cobbler with ice cream or a sabayon.

I wonder where we will all be in January 2013?
