The car club for New York Long Island and Metro New York Miata Enthusiasts!
The Big Apple Miata Club, located on Long Island, NY, is a group dedicated to the enjoyment and preservation of the Mazda Miata through events, meetings and gatherings. Our goals are to have fun, drive safe and enjoy our cars.
The club members enjoy their Miatas during weekend and day tours throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions. A mainstay of every ride is enjoying the bounty of restaurants located along our routes with the good company of other members. Since the club is mainly involved in touring, we look forward to the ideas that new members can contribute.
We welcome all who share our passion for the Miata and enjoy interesting rides and the company of fellow members. We hope you enjoy your visit and consider joining The Big Apple Miata Club.
President's Spring Newsletter
Spring is finally here and so far we've had a wet spring and everything seems to be blooming at once here on Long Island. Although the weather has not been cooperating, the club has been able to have some nice events in spite of the clouds and rain.
In March, we were scheduled for a Beach Walk and luncheon, but rainy weather postponed the walk and we only had the luncheon at the Post Office Cafe in Babylon. Members did enjoy the chance to get together for lunch at this great little cafe.
In April, Steve ran our annual Dust Off ride. This year he took us all over the North Shore communities of Long Island. The weather was warm enough for some top down driving which was greatly appreciated. Also in April, we took our annual ride up to the Walking Bridge over the Hudson River. A converted railroad track that is now part of a walking trail system in NY. Of course the weather was misty, but we managed to get the ride in and walk the 1.25 miles bridge across the Hudson River and back in no time. Lunch was had at the Double-O Grill in Wappingers Falls.
Coming up is our annual Tech Session at Paul's house. We expect several members to show up to work on their cars and others to sample the bagels and coffee. Finally, a 3 night trip up to Cape Ann's Marina Resort in Gloucester, MA is on the horizon for the first weekend in May. A repeat of a trip we did several years ago to this quaint New England town and surrounding villages.
So as we start a new season of the BAMC, I want to thank all of you for your continued participation in our car club and welcome the many new members who joined this past year. Remember we put the rides out each year and hope you will enjoy driving along with us to new and different places.
See all of you at the next meeting,
