Upcoming Event -- Candy Cane Lane Cruise -- December 17

Apart from the one last remaining club meeting, there is still one event left for 2011, that being the Candy Cane Lane Cruise in support of the Edmonton Food Bank, on Saturday, December 17.

Martin will be e-mailing out details as the date approaches, but sufficed to say, we'll be meeting at the Second Cup on 149 Street a few blocks north of Whitemud Drive, and from there, take a drive up and down Candy Cane Lane. Attendance in a Miata is not required, nor is it required to be top-down if you do (it does generate a lot of response from the crowds of people on CCL though). The important part is to make a donation to the Edmonton Food Bank while enjoying the sights (and sounds) of CCL, and to wish your fellow club members a little bit of holiday cheer.

(The Polar Bear Run on New Year's Day will of course be our first event of 2012.)

Meeting Reminder -- November 17

The last club meeting of 2011 is Thursday, November 17, at 7:00pm in the 2nd floor boardroom at Park Mazda in Sherwood Park.

The next meeting won't be until Thursday, January 19, 2012.

Movie Night -- Monday, November 7

The Senna movie is (still) playing at the Princess Theatre on Whyte Ave.

To quote:
"Ayrton Senna's remarkable story, charting his physical and spiritual achievements on the track and off, his quest for perfection, and the mythical status he has since attained, is the subject of SENNA, a documentary feature that spans the racing legend's years as an F1 driver, from his opening season in 1984 to his untimely death a decade later. Far more than a film for F1 fans, SENNA unfolds a remarkable story in a remarkable manner, eschewing many standard documentary techniques in favor of a more cinematic approach that makes full use of astounding footage, much of which is drawn from F1 archives and previously unseen. SENNA is made with the full co-operation of Ayrton Senna's family, who have given permission for this to be the first documentary feature film about his life; Formula One, who gave permission to use previously unseen footage; and the Ayrton Senna Institute, the charitable foundation established after his death, which provides educational opportunities to millions of deprived Brazilian children."

The trailer for the film can be seen here:

The show times are listed at, however, let's turn this into a WRMC event for Monday, November 7, at the 6:50pm show. It'll be the best $6 you've spent in a while.
