Thanks to Tom Varallo and Daryl Shipman for planning tonight’s dinner location. We managed to scoop up most of the tables but left the booths (mostly). Pot Smoker had wonderful food and friendly service. Highly recommend to try it if you weren’t able to make it to the two meetings we’ve had there.

• A motion was made, and approved to spend up to $200.00 for meats for the Christmas Party.

• See Larry or Tom for “Noticed your Miata” cards; to give to people who own Miata’s that may be interested in joining.
• See Dennis for name-tags……
• Club merchandise available: Pins are $3 each; “Support Vehicle” car magnets $25 per pair, canvas tote/shopping bag $20 each. The 3” window stickers are available, these are the ones that go on the outside. The cling ones for the inside of the glass are also newly available.
Coffee mugs and other items are available from http://www.cafepress.com/masters_miata
Communigraphics in North Augusta has our logo, for $8 you can have it embroidered on just about anything.

Club Business:

    • Monday August 21st is the Total Eclipse of the sun. Larry Garner looked for places in Columbia, SC since that’s how close we are to the area of totality.  Don Boltz’ Mom has a house and property in Lexington, SC.  She has graciously allowed our folks to observe the eclipse from her house.  There is plenty of room for parking and picnicking.  But she requests no one enter the house – this means bathroom about a block away at Burger King.  So bring your chairs, umbrellas, drinks, lunch, camera’s, special eclipse glasses, etc.  Enjoy!  But leave it as clean as you found it please!   Eclipse glasses can be picked up at Walgreens for free.  Larry advises not waiting until noon to leave, I-20 will be packed, back roads are the better option.
    • Bug Splat scheduled for August 26th! Don’t miss it……Bugs tremble!  Details on the website calendar.
    • Please RSVP to Shirley Dyer if you plan on attending the 7 September Dinner Meeting at Boll Weevil.
    • As mentioned above, the new “inside the glass” cling club stickers are now available, one per car is free, so those of you that didn’t attend tonight’s meeting be sure to get yours soon.
    • At the Scavenger Hunt/Road Rally we added 3 new member teams. Glenn and Julie Stephens from Alpharetta, Patrick and Jeanne Cumby from Ashville, and Travis Layson from Lexington, brought his daughter Josie as his navigator.  Welcome to the club everyone!  Please visit the website for exciting new events.   😉
    • Thanks to David and Ellie Brock for planning and executing the Scavenger Hunt/Road Rally. It was challenging, sometimes frustrating, but all-in-all good fun!  (to our knowledge no divorces occurred from it)
    • There are still some Zoom-Zoom bags being held for members (as of June) who have not received theirs, please see Tom or Shirley Dyer to claim yours.
    • Rudy and Patty have reserved the Clubhouse at Brookstone for the Christmas Party on December 9th. The Rental charge is $50 and as mentioned above: meat (Ham & Turkey), will be purchased by the club.  A pot luck style dinner is planned and sign-up sheets for other dishes will be circulated soon.  More planning to come…..
    • Also, planning has not yet begun for the Club 25th Anniversary Celebration scheduled for February 3rd.
