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 Fall 2017 Newsletter
Since my last Newsletter, we had a successful overnighter to the Bear Mountain area. The ride in that area of the Hudson Valley has many winding roads with some along the edge of the road overlooking the Hudson River. Seven Lakes Drive is a beautiful area of Harriman State Park with many Miata curves to keep you on your toes. There were several food and ice cream stops along the way and a quick pass by West Point Military Academy.
We followed this up with our annual participation in the Alternatives for Children Road Rally on Sept. 16th. Eight cars attended. Donna took 3rd place overall, Mike & Kathy took 1st place for the 2000 decade cars, and Marie won a basket in the auction. Congrats to all our winners an everyone who participated this year.
Finally, a 2 night trip up to the Innisfree Garden and the Norman Rockwell Museum was recently completed. Six cars made the trip up to the Hyde Park area of New York. Members toured the garden, the Rockwell Museum, and FDR's home, with some extra time to walk around and shop in Rhinebeck, NY.
Coming up is our annual Pie Run on November 19th. Ellie and I have planned a stop at the Apple Farm we used to stop at years age and a winery is also on the list. We expect a big turnout for this event, so lets hope for good weather. That will be our last event of the year until the Holiday Party in January.
Lastly, at the last meeting, the current Board of Officers was nominated again for the upcoming year. Thank you all for the confidence you have in us and we look forward to another year of interesting rides and events.
See you at the next meeting,
