Jasper Jaunt event -- September 17

The rescheduled date for the Jasper Jaunt event is Saturday, September 17.

Same details apply...meeting at the Tim Hortons at 170 Street & 111 Avenue at 7am, for a departure soon thereafter.

Prepare for a full day (hopefully top-down), so dress appropriately for all types of weather (brisk morning, sunny afternoon, cool evening).

(As a result, the club's Fall Colours Run will be re-scheduled to Saturday, October 1 -- details to follow later in September.)

Jasper Jaunt POSTPONED until September

Very little interest was shown in this event (only three cars), but much was heard in favour of rescheduling this event to a later date in September, so that's what we're going to do.

Date to follow by the weekend (after tonight's meeting).

Event Reminder -- Jasper Jaunt -- August 20

Saturday, August 20 will be the Jasper Jaunt event. A meeting place on the westend of the city (near to Yellowhead Trail) hasn't been firmed up yet (suggestions for a location which provides coffee and possibly breakfast are welcome) but we'll meet for 7am, with a 7:30 departure.

We'll be enjoying the good roads that Jasper National Park has to offer, plus a stop in at the Bear's Paw Bakery and a nice picnic site I know of. Main intent is to enjoy the newly reconstructed road up to Mt. Edith Cavell.

This will be a full day's event, but you're entirely welcome to stay the night in Jasper and make it a weekend if you like.

More details forthcoming, via the googlegroup e-mail.

Meeting Reminder -- August 18

A reminder that the club's August meeting is Thursday, Aug 18 at 7pm in the 2nd floor boardroom of Park Mazda in Sherwood Park.

The Summer 2011 issue of the Miata Musings newsletter will be available for pick-up, along with the Best NA (Bob E.) and Best NB (Don S.) trophies from our show 'n shine event, and the Flyin' Miata Targa Newfoundland "Patron" level support t-shirts (for Denis G. & Judy K., Michel L., Bruce U., Gary V., Randall V., and Sam W.).

Event Reminder -- EZCC Autoslalom #4 -- Sunday, August 14

Sunday, August 4 is the 4th autoslalom of the season for the Edmonton Z-Car Club at which WRMC members are guests. Assuming that you've either registered as a competitor (for Event #4 only), or are on the spectator list (only required once), you can gain access to the runways at C.F.B. Edmonton.

A reminder that there will be no bbq lunch available at this event, as due to a rain-out rescheduling, the EZCC is also hosting their show 'n shine event on the same date, and Doug K. will be there with his bbq. So, be prepared, by bringing your own drinks and food in addition to sun-screen.

Welcome to new members:

Peter B. of Ft. McMurray -- looking for a good NB;
Bruce & Heather MacD. of Sherwood Park -- 2009 Stormy Blue Mica
Terry & Marie L. of Edmonton -- 2007 True Red
