Chasing Steeples

Miata Club Is Railside

First there were 8 people coming, then there were six and then just four, so the Masons stopped at the Bogarduses in their pickup to pick up the Bogardus’s stuff to take to the track. Donna and Karol decided to walk to the track while Brian and Dennis would drive. The guys drove the truck a half mile south to get ice, then back to Boardman Rd so Brian could get the Miata. Because of the gate the vehicles were supposed to enter they had to drive 2-1/2 miles north to almost downtown Aiken, a half mile east and then the 2-1/2 miles back south on a different road to the racetrack. After all that, the guys and the two vehicles still arrived at the designated parking spot a couple minutes before the ladies walked their one mile.

Brian & Donna were originally not going to drive the Miata to the races, figuring someone else could use the parking pass, but seeing as it was just the two couples going they figured someone had to represent. Sort of good thing they did, it attracted a couple of fellow Miata owners from nearby parking spots and Brian got to hand out a couple of Club calling cards.

The gates opened at 9 and by 9:30 we had the Mason’s pop-up awning in place, chairs laid out and our tailgating spot all set up. It was basically cloudy all morning, but precisely at the 1:00PM post time for the first race it started sprinkling. After the first race ended, it stopped. It didn’t exactly work out like that all afternoon, but it certainly seemed to, dry in between, precipitation during the 5 minutes of racing time. It poured and thundered a little during the big money 4th race, but the damp weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit in our little corner of the race course.

Thanks for letting us use your spot Tom.

Saturday at Gerald Jones Mazda

Nineteen cars and twenty-six people joined us for the Dealer Day festivities on May 17th.  It was a beautiful day spent socializing and looking at all the Miatas. Thanks to Stacey for coordinating the event, to Gerald Jones Mazda for having us and for providing lunch, and to Jon for his presentation on the history of the MX-5/Miata and for whetting our appetites on the upcoming ND.
