June Meeting Minutes

When: June 7th, 2018

Where: Metro Diner, Washington Rd., Augusta

Who: Brian and Donna Bogardus, Don and Kay Boltz, David and Ellie Brock, Mike and Shirley Dyer, Dennis and Karol Mason, Ralf Wilms, Dan Prince and Leanne Shealy, and new members Mathew and Debbie Wojtkowicz (I hope I spelled that correctly – my apologies if I did not), and Ralf Wilms invited Brenda Hays. Welcome to our new members, and Brenda!

Thanks to Dennis for making arrangements for tonight’s meeting. The food was good and service good too. We hadn’t been here before and were pleasantly surprised. Be aware if you decide to eat here, they close at 8pm. It was open and a bit loud, so rather than contributing to the noise level we decided to have a short meeting outside – and the evening was nice for it.

Treasurer’s Report: The club account started at $1159.80, added $20.00 in dues, and $30 from pin sales, and paid out $48.85 to the Brocks for the Road Rally prize, which makes a balance of $1160.97.
• Tom and Larry have business cards with the club website to handout to prospective Miata owners that may be interested in joining our club.
• See Dennis for name tags…
• New club merchandise is available: Pins are $3 each; “Support Vehicle” car magnets are $25 per pair, canvas tote/shopping bag $20 each. The 3” window stickers have come in and are available now.
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:
• Tom was at “Zoomin in the Mountains of East Tennessee” so Dennis took the meeting.
• We discussed upcoming events: Stacey Timmerman wasn’t present but we reminded all who
plan to attend the Trenton Peach Parade, we will meet at the Airport Grill (1301 Bettis Academy Rd in Trenton), for breakfast at 8am. If you don’t plan for breakfast then meet us there ready to roll at 9am.
• If you haven’t paid your dues for the year, please see Mike Dyer or any officer at your next
meeting to get caught up. Thank you for your support!
• Last, Please remember to RSVP to our events – it makes it difficult for the planner if we don’t
know how many will show – especially for smaller venues. Your RSVP is greatly appreciated, so please don’t forget.

1. I’m sure it is, the misspelling is probably the fault of their web site creator. I know, because I have first hand experience with just that sort of thing.

We will depart the Airport Grill at 9 o’clock for a short drive via some back roads and hopefully drive by some peach orchards on the way to Trenton, South Carolina and the 48th Annual Ridge Peach Festival. We will line up at about 9:40 on Wise Street and the parade will start at 10:30.

There will be food, vendors, crafters, children’s rides and a great parade in which we will drive in. Start practicing those parade waves and bring some candy to throw to the crowd. After the parade we’ll hang around and soak up the atmosphere.
