Club Business:
Dues for calendar year 2018 are due now. In fact they were due on 1 Jan, so please see Mike Dyer or any officer at your next meeting to get caught up. Thank you for your support!

Don Boltz has volunteered to plan a drive to Asheville and New Belguim Brewery in April in place of the dinner meeting (that won’t happen because of Masters). With an overnight on your own, if you choose. The brewery tour is a 90 min tour, tasting is free but requires a reservation. They open for tours at 11:30 Mon-Sat. He is thinking of leaving Friday, Apr 6th or Saturday, the 7th at 8am in order to arrive in time for the first tour. He’s planned a tentative route through Trenton, Johnston, Saluda, then I-26 to Asheville. It would be approximately a 3 hour drive. In Asheville near the brewery is an Artists Row, & Restaurants, of course the Biltmore House and Winery ($65-$70), the Wildlife Zoo, a Trolley Tour thru downtown Asheville, and the Blueridge Parkway.  Plenty to do.  If you decide to spend the night, accommodations are pricey in Asheville, but more reasonable outside Asheville.  If you are interested you must let Don & Kay know, so they have a count for the brewery tour.  Thanks Don for planning this!!

David Brock has planned the route for the Road Rally on April 21st.  This time it will be an urban/suburban drive and a slower pace and will take about an hour.  He has created a Facebook event page for this.  Search for Masters Miata.  We will start at Greg’s Gas Plus at SC Exit 1.

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.

New Business/Upcoming calendar events:
• Dennis is going to check into a better more professional looking name tag, worthy of our club, and will present his findings to the members for approval.
