Welcome to new members:

Dan & Sharon R. of Edmonton (1990 Classic Red);
Valerie W. & Stu M. of Edmonton (2007 Brilliant Black), and;
Darryl & Liz V. of Sherwood Park (1990 Crystal White).

They all joined at the Show 'n Shine, but knew of the club through various means beforehand (two being referred by existing members and one having acquired a former member's car).

Sounds as if we can expect a few more memberships via the mail as a result of the event though...all people who saw it advertised in the Edmonton Journal.

Meeting Reminder

Remember that Thursday, August 20 is the club meeting night...7pm in the 2nd floor boardroom at Park Mazda.

Sounds as we've currently got 52 Miatas lined up for Saturday's Show 'n Shine...and Bob will have an organization update at the meeting.

September issue of Miata Musings will be out early

In order to help reinforce the event changes brought about subsequent to the printing of the August issue of the Miata Musings (autoslalom #5 reschedule, deletion of August BBQ, inclusion of the August Show 'n Shine) and to provide details on September's Fall Colours Run (now in combination with a BBQ), the September issue of the Miata Musings will be mailed out early this month.

Don't take that as an excuse not to attend the August 20 club meeting (where the newsletters are typically available for pick-up prior to being mailed) but life's moving too fast to let this wait another two weeks.
