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 Autumn Newsletter
Now that summer is over and we are waiting for this election season to finally be over, the club still had some nice events on the schedule to participate in.
First up was the annual Alternatives for Children Road Rally starting in East Setauket and ending at Stonewalls Restaurant in Riverhead. Several BAMC members took home event prizes. Paul Case took 3rd place for the 2000's decade cars, new member Paul Di Bennedetto took 3rd place for the 1990's decade cars, and Lew and Barbara took 3rd place in the Overall category. A great showing for the BAMC.
A special Appreciation Award was presented to the club for our 6th straight year of participation in the AFC event. This will be raffled off to a club member at our Holiday Party in January.
Finally, a foliage ride up to the Walking Bridge Over the Hudson, preceded by brunch at Shadows on the Hudson, was run the following weekend. The weather was clear and windy but perfect for viewing the mountains of the Hudson Valley.
The last event is the annual Pie Run on Saturday, November 19th. As in the past, we will stop at popular bakeries out east for our holiday pies and then have lunch at a local restaurant.
Nominations for Club Board Members were unanimous at the last meeting. However, Linda Cody was nominated for Club Secretary as Artie Pirozzi has other commitments this coming year. Thanks Artie for your service to the club this past year.
See all of you at the next meeting.
