Happy Birthday to George R.

At the October meeting it was noted that Friday, October 17 was club member George R.'s 94th birthday. Befitting of a Miata owner, he doesn't look nor act his age. Congrats and many more!

Meeting Reminder -- Past due for October

The club's monthly meeting was held on October 16 per usual at Park Mazda. A good turn-out, six more hats distributed, and a lively discussion with some details on up-coming 2015 events. The club's last meeting for the year will be on November 20...hope to see you there.

Breaking News -- Event Update -- Saturday, June 7 -- EZCC Autocross in support of the Stollery Children's Hospital at C.F.B. Edmonton

The Edmonton Z-Car Club has done the impossible; having secured the runways / taxiways at C.F.B. Edmonton for an autocross, to be held on Saturday, June 7.

Said runways/taxiway were last available in 2012, and the partnership that the EZCC had with the WRMC is back on. Due to the base's requirements, registration is required for ALL drivers and spectators (they're free) no later than Friday, May 30, so time is short on this one!

Spring -- Vol 20, Iss 2 -- Miata Musings newsletter out

The Spring issue of our Miata Musings newsletter was e-mailed to the valid 2014 members today. If you didn't receive it, well, that means that your membership has expired (or that you didn't inform us of an e-mail address change). The club's Google Group e-mail system was purged of the expired 2013 members yesterday, based on non-response to multiple chances to renew. Still the best $20 you can spend on your Miata.

Meeting Reminder -- Thursday, March 20

The club's next meeting is Thursday, March 20, at 7pm in the second floor boardroom of Park Mazda. Attendees can pick up their 2014 membership cards (or those late, late, long-overdue 2013 members can renew). All other members will have their membership cards mailed by the following weekend.
