The Hammer

From Petrolicious – For three decades, this six liter family-friendly juggernaut has been pinning drivers in seats while ruthlessly smashing Saturday errands, earning the nickname, “The Hammer.” See the behind the scenes gallery and read more about this 1987 Mercedes-Benz AMG Hammer Wagon at http://petro.li/AMGHammer

September Meeting Minutes

When: September 7th, 2017

Where: Boll Weevil, Augusta

Who: Don Boltz, Mike and Shirley Dyer, Larry and Rita Garner, Dennis and Karol Mason, Daryl Shipman and Sherry Moore, Hal and Trudy Scott, Bob and Pat Tarrant, Tom and Sue Varallo, Ralf and Annie Wilms, Rudy Wilmoth, and Dave and Sue Woomer.

Thanks to Shirley Dyer for planning tonight’s dinner location. They had a nice big semi-separate room we used, the food was yummy and the service was excellent. Then there’s the dessert – all are to die for, but cheesecake is their specialty!   If you are downtown in Augusta, don’t miss this gem.

Treasurer’s Report: Started at $1436.87, added $10 in dues payments from our new member Steve Zwemer, and $20 in pin sales. Balance = $1466.87.

• 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:
• 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 last month or tonight’s meeting be sure to get yours soon.
• We added one new member – Steve Zwemer, welcome to the club Steve! Please visit the website for exciting new events. 😉
• Pat Tarrant won the “Baby Miata” matchbox car in the special giveaway at tonight’s dinner (sponsored by Mike & Shirley)
• Rudy and Patty have reserved the Clubhouse at Brookstone for the Christmas Party on December 9th. The Rental charge is $50 and meat (Ham & Turkey) will be purchased by the club. A pot luck style dinner is planned. Karol is looking at Honey Baked Ham and a few other places for the meats; she circulated sign-up sheets for other dishes and will post it on the website. We think ‘Bring Your Own’ (for alcohol) is the best way to go, but Shirley & Karol may spike the punch – so be warned! More planning to come…..
• Also, planning has not yet begun for the Club 25th Anniversary Celebration scheduled for February 3rd but a few ideas have begun percolating.
