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.

Club Secretary

June Meeting Minutes

Treasurer’s Report: $1,367.49

Business:

    • President – John Nicholls
    • Vice President – Rudy Wilmoth
    • Secretary – Donna Bogardus
    • Treasurer – Brian Bogardus
  2. It would be really be nice if we had a Rally Master and another post on the nice to have list would be a Membership Chairperson. If you would like one of these jobs speak up.
  3. This month’s breakfast is at Carl’s BBQ in North Augusta. Followed by:
  4. A caravan to Trenton for the Peach Parade.
  5. Rudy mentioned maybe having a tech day in July. Details may be forthcoming.
  6. July’s Meeting was moved from the 5th to the 12th because of the Independence Day holiday.

Respectfully submitted:
Donna Bogardus
Incoming Secretary

April Meeting Minutes

This will be a concise report just like the meeting. The treasurer reported that we have met our obligations and still have money in the bank.

Schedule for our events to come:
The breakfast for the 21 st is CNX
The Walter Mitty is on for the 28-29 and should be great since Mazda is the sponsor. Details will be on the web site as they develop. As of now the departure will be from the Cracker Barrel.

The meeting in May will be at the Sno-Cap, NEW TIME 7:00 PM ESDT.

Looking into activities in May­
A canoe trip May 12 will be sponsored by Dave Schumacher. Join up will be at 9AM at Aiken State Parle No white water is scheduled. This should cost about $10 to $12 per person, last about 2 hours and be a leisurely float/paddle down stream.

On the 19th of May we will meet Dave again for breakfast somewhere near Elmcroft. After breakfast we will take residents of the nursing home for a ride in the country.

Remember Sno-Cap May 3, 2007 *****7:00 PM ESDT

March Meeting Minutes

The nasty weather kept a few people at bay, including the Secretary, so Patti stepped up and scribbled the meeting minutes on several napkins. Here is the best guess as to what she wrote down:

Attendees: Donna & Brian Bogardus, Bill & Bonnie Baugh, Jackie & John Nicholls, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth, Kurt & Karen Breitinger & Family, Gail & Miller Butler and Stacy Timmerman

Treasurer’s Report: $1,347.49

Old and New Business:

  1. Kurt might want a tech day change to March 24. He will let us know.
  2. The March 17th breakfast is still on the calendar. Details are posted on the web site.
  3. Auto Fair is off the calendar unless someone wants to take the lead.
  4. Kurt added Walter Mitty on April 28. He will come up with some details. Watch this space.
  5. Stacy talked to Rachel at the Snowcap. She has a Sponsor for the Saturday Cruise-Ins – Yearwood Speed & Customs in Evans, GA. Gascar has agreed to be the permenant “hosts”, but there will still be a Featured Club. Rachel wanted us there on May 26 from 6-8. Since it is Memorial Day weekend, Stacy will see if he can get a different date.
  6. The April monthly meeting is changed to April 12 because of Master’s week. It will be in Martinez at the Mia Rancho on Belair and Columbia Road. Hopefully John Haff (actually Carol) will arrange for the room!!

January 2007 Meeting Minutes

or Masters’ Miata Calendar Mania.

We the meeting members: Brian & Donna Bogardus, John Bowles, Kurt Breitinger, Miller & Gail Butler, John & Carol Haff, John & Jackie Nicholls, David & Autumn Schumacher, Stacey & Cindy Timmerman, Rudy & Patti Wi1moth, and Dave Winkler met to hassle out the 2007 calendar.

As the group gathered, some discussed the fun we had the past year and also some new ideas for the new year. First on the list of business we finalized the details for the annual dinner. Brian suggested the club pay $ l 5 dollars towards each member’s dinner. After a short discussion, his suggestion was approved.

Dave, set up a large white board and we got started on the calendar. As you may note below there are some changes since last year and one or two new activities. The new calendar will be posted on the new web site and changes can be made as the days get closer to each event. Here is a brief outline of things to come.

See the Event Listings and Calendar to the left or click on the Event Category to see further out in the year.

The calendar for the year will gain the details for each event as the sponsor provides information. We will continue to have meetings at various restaurants in an effort to establish a standard spot for the three primary locations of our members, Aiken, North Augusta, and August Metro.

If members hear of other activities sponsored by other Miata clubs or just a fun outing for the group, post it on the web site to let the other members have an optional activity for that occasional spare free day to enjoy a top down drive.
