    • Dave Winkler’s Warner Robbins trip is this Saturday.
    • When Brian asked if any one planned on going to the Gap on the 21st the response was underwhelming.
    • October’s meeting will be at Mi Rancho in Aiken.

July Meeting Minutes

Attendees: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Gail & Miller Butler, Jackie & John Nicholls, Dave Schumaker, Denny Smith, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth, and Dave & Bobbie Winkler

Treasurer’s Report: $1,283.49

Business:

  1. Past events were reviewed:
    • The Pool Party was splasherific.
    • The Trenton Parade was peachy.
  2. Dave Schumacher regrets that he can no longer offer the “Beat the Heat” bowling event on July 28th as he will be out of town. If someone wants to step up and shepherd this event Dave would be happy to give you what he has worked out already.
  3. Another causality is this month’s breakfast, but the Nicholls have taken over this event. For details, see HERE.
  4. John Nicholls has produced some flyers for advertising the Club that we can use to put under windshield wipers of Miatas we stumble on in our daily lives. He was soliciting changes and or improvements at this meeting. A couple of suggestions were made and he is going to have them available for distribution at the next meeting and thereafter.
  5. Brian unveiled the “New & Improved” 50/50 raffle at tonight’s meeting. Instead of the usual one winner getting half the money collected, he has added a second winner to the mix. At each meeting he will bring an item from our recently received Mazda Goodie Box to offer as an additional prize. Because all goodies are not created equal, the first ticket pulled will have the option of taking the 50% or the prize. The second ticket pulled will get the leftover. July’s winners were Rudy & Patti ($10) and Gail & Miller (Zoom-Zoom black & gray baseball jersey.)
  6. If you are planning on going on the Gold Rush Days Trip in October you better get that cabin rental reserved now.

  4. A caravan to Trenton for the Peach Parade.
  5. Rudy mentioned maybe having a tech day in July. Details may be forthcoming.
