Event Reminder -- Thursday, June 7 -- Ondrack Garagemahal Tour

A reminder of the forthcoming tour of Jack Ondrack's garage with its car and race-car collection on Thursday, June 7. Not published in the Spring newsletter (it developed after printing), this is a treat not to miss, facilitated by Brian S., fresh back from his successful run at the Knox Mountain Hill Climb on the May longweekend. It's developing into a meet at Gateway Park for just after 6pm, with a prompt departure at 6:30pm so that we can arrive at Jack's at 7pm. A route map will be e-mailed out soon once I confirm the address location in Parkland County vis-a-vis Google Maps' impression of where it is. This will leave you of course with a day to clean off the bugs from your car in preparation for the Show 'n Shine at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum on Saturday and the EZCC autoslalom on Sunday. A busy couple of Miata days next week ahead.

Event Reminder -- Saturday, May 26 -- Spring Drive

Saturday, May 26 is the Spring Drive, a lovely 3hr drive on our tried 'n tested route south, west, and north of Edmonton. We meet at Gateway Park on the Queen Elizabeth II highway (the oil Derrick) at 1pm. We should be in Seba Beach around 3pm, and into St. Albert before 5pm. The mid-point at Seba Beach is a 30min stop to stretch and use the facilities. Bring your hats, sun-screen, cameras, and have your car full of gas. See you then/there.

Good Luck!

Brian S. of our club will be participating in the 55th running of the Knox Mountain Hill Climb in Kelowna, BC, on the Victoria Day longweekend, in his turbo-charged Miata especially built for the job. Best of luck Brian!

Meeting Reminder -- Thursday, May 17

The club's monthly meeting is Thursday, May 17 at 7pm in the second floor boardroom of Park Mazda in Sherwood Park. Andrew S. -- our Competition Director -- will be showing a few videos from his recent Skip Barber Race School at Lime Rock Park from a few weeks ago. Sadly, Andrew will now be away for work that day, so can't make the no movies. :-(
