October Meeting Minutes

When: October 5th, 2017

Where: Old McDonalds Fish Camp, North Augusta
Who: Brian and Donna Bogardus, Don and Kay Boltz, Mike and Shirley Dyer, Larry and Rita Garner, Dennis and Karol Mason, Bob and Pat Tarrant, Tom Varallo, Ralf and Annie Wilms, Rudy and Patti Wilmoth, and Dave and Sue Woomer.

Thanks to Bob and Pat Tarrant for planning tonight’s dinner location. Old McDonalds had a nice big semi-separate room we used, the food was very good, served quickly, and the service was very good as well. It’s an Augusta tradition for fish, shellfish and the unusual (such as Gator)…….

Treasurer’s Report: Started at $1466.87, added $10 in dues payments from our new member Beatriz Rodriguez. Balance = $1476.87.

• 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:
• We added one new member – Beatriz Rodriguez, welcome to the club Beatriz! Please visit the website for exciting new events. 😉
• Rudy and Patty have reserved the Clubhouse at Brookstone (1250 Brookstone Way) 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. Karol circulated sign-up sheets for other dishes. We think ‘Bring Your Own’ (for alcohol) is the best way to go. Looks like we are expecting about 40 people. And we plan to start the party about 5:00pm because the gates close (gated community) at 6pm. So most will arrive before then. Of course after that we can get the gate open for you. 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.
• We will be doing a planning dinner soon for next year’s events – so get those ideas together for what you would like to do!!
