Thanks to David and Ellie for making reservations for tonight’s meeting! – I enjoyed the view from the loft. The food was good and filling! A little noisy from the kitchen sounds but enjoyable none the less. Members enjoyed chatting, socializing and eating before the meeting started.

Treasurer’s Report: The balance started at $939.95, no transactions this month, so the ending balance is the same.

away – the party is not to be missed and you’ll regret it if you miss it! ? We need to collect the money in advance so we can have a check ready for our caterer.

• Tale of the Dragon run (tomorrow) on 2-4 November – Gonna be a beautiful time to catch
some fall colors too! Make your reservations now at the Quality Inn and Suites in Robbinsville!

• Larry Garner has planned a breakfast on 17 November at 9 am at Red Oak Manor in Harlem
(410 North Louisville Street) then a short drive to ‘Feathered Friends Forever’ a Bird Sanctuary (612 Byrd Rd) for their 19th Annual Open House. They have 1400 birds of many types and ages. We will arrive at the bird sanctuary at 11am (when they open) if you want to meet us at the Bird Sanctuary. But please RSVP (on the website) for breakfast, so Larry can give a count to Red Oak Manor.

• Our Christmas Party will be on December 15th this year at the same location (thank you
Patty!), Brookstone Clubhouse (1250 Brookstone Way, Augusta). We will be having the same caterer and same meal (Ham, Turkey, mashed potatoes w/gravy, green beans, garden salad, rolls, pound cake, banana pudding, tea & water) but this year there will be a $10 charge per person. This will keep the club funds in good shape, and it’s a pretty good price for an evening of fun and fellowship. And don’t forget your White Elephant gift for the fun gift exchange/steal. Each person that wants to participate, please bring a wrapped gift valued at $20 or less. Also, BYOB if you wish to drink.

• Dues for the upcoming year will be due on 1 Jan 2019, so please prepare to contribute, and
see Mike Dyer at the Christmas party or the January meeting. Thank you for your support!

• 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.

• See Dennis Mason for name tags, if you so desire.
• Tom and Larry have business cards with the club website to handout to prospective Miata
owners that may be interested in joining our club.
• 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.
