GoogleGroup testing in progress

We're in the process of getting our GoogleGroup up and running. You can expect a few odd e-mails over the course of the next day or so as we (Martin and Richard) test a few things.

There will be two addresses, one for inter-member chatter and one purely for event annoucements.

If your e-mail system is filtering these out (into your SPAM box), please unblock the addresses, such that you receive these e-mails.

Hopefully this will allow a few more people to interact as compared to the sparse member usage on the Miata Club Canada forum.

3rd Annual "Car Movie Marathon" -- March 6

Saturday, March 6th is our 3rd annual Car Movie Marathon beat away the winter blahs / cabin fever and get us all ready for spring.

It's a BYOB (bring your own bottle(s) & mix / BYOSTS (bring your own snacks to share) / BYOMFP (bring your own money for pizza) affair, which will be held at Steven & Patty S's house in south Edmonton (same site for the previous two events).

Arrival for a good seat in the theatre room, per norm, is 9:30am, with drinks in-hand at 10am (that's noon EST, so it's okay). Arrive / leave when you like if you can't do all-day, but this is planeed for Season 14 of Top Gear (7 episodes), Truth in 24 (Audi movie about LeMans), and some other it'll be all-day with stretch- and lunch-break.

March issue of Miata Musings

For those that didn't pick up their newsletters at last night's club meeting (and for those that I knew wouldn't be there and out-of-town members, whose newsletters were dropped in the mail this past Tuesday), your newsletters will be posted this weekend.

Look for them no later than mid-week next week.

There are a number of Calendar of Event tweaks since the February issue sent out last month, all of which are high-lighted on page 2.

More on the Show 'n Shine(s) will be forthcoming soon, as things develop with the entre week of festivities leading up to the Edmonton Indy race in late July. Bob, Randy, and Will are working hard (Will's now on the organizing committee for the festival as well, so we have an in).
