    Let’s see what kind of turnout we can get if we actually make it a club event! The show proceeds got to Wheels for Wheels, a local charity that is a non-profit organization.

    The show officially starts at noon, but last year we got there early and half the cars were already there. I’m suggesting we meet at my house around 10:30-10:45 and head down at 11:00 as a group, but not a requirement. Bring a chair and a cooler, last year there was a great variety of interesting cars, spanning a wide spectrum. And several Miatas not belonging to our group. Interesting people to talk to, food vendors, local business, etc.

    The event is held at Pettibone Community Center, 2 Pickett District Rd, New Milford, CT 06776

    The web page for the event can be found here: https://www.wheelsforwheels.com/events

    Or on FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/events/909809613183819

    If enough people are interested I’d be happy to have people back to the house afterwards for pulled pork sandwiches and beverages in the driveway or around the fire pit. Post up in the forums if you’re down so that I can get an idea of a head count.

    Do I need to register with them? It appears like you have to pay to register.

    I’m reserved on the events page, but not sure how to proceed from here.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the email and for the after car show invite.  I asked my wife to come with me.  We shall see.

    I planned to stop by your place for a few minutes after the car show.  Hope you have plenty of parking in your neighborhood.

    Hey Mike,

    As far as my understanding with Dave’s email, we are going to be registered as part of the club and we pay the club the $10.

    So there is no need to register individually through the site.  RSVP to the event is all that is needed for now.

    Yes, Levi is correct. I will register those who sign up to the event as a group with the organizers. There will be a list of club members at check-in. Hopefully we can head down as a group. Then I will collect $10 from club members at the show and get that money to Bob to reimburse the club. I’m not sure how they will treat passengers, as a “suggested donation” of $20 is mentioned in their flyers. Or they may just wave the club in as a group, we’ll see. If they do… maybe go send a couple bucks at their merch tent.

    Don’t worry Scott and Rita, I understand that you guys are already set up.

    Hey Lee and Robin, just to be sure, you should sign up on the Club “Events” page. I don’t think the “Events Page” is synced to the “Events Forum” so the roster may not get updates.

    It says reservations are closed. Is it ok to come to Dave’s house and attend the event anyway?

    OK, yes I had set the event to close at 11:00 this morning, but I have added both of you my list. You should be able to officially sign up until 5:00 tonight. If you can, do add your names so that when I make the mass donation, the numbers match and Bob does not question my math.

    The Wheels for Wheels Charity Car Show was a great turnout.   We could not ask more for a better weather flying the new Nutmeg Miata banner that Dave made in his basement.

    Needless to say, It was great seeing some of the club members Dave, Joe, Gary, Mike, Lee, et. AL.

    Thank you also to Dave for offering his house for the post-show get together with a good home cooked “Italian” meal and libations.

    The drive coming home to the Big City was nothing but spectacular!   I was rewarded by lots of narrow twisties using the local route.

    I only took a few pictures, most of them are stored as a mental pictures.

    Couldn’t have asked for a better day for this event.   The Wheels for Wheels Charity Car Show brought together old friends and where new friends were made.  It was great to mingle and check out other member’s cars.  So many different stories and ideas to grasp.  Thanks to Dave for shouting out to us and making it happen.  The after show rendezvous back at Dave’s house was a real plus.  His hospitality  was much appreciated by all.  It was great to be a part of this event.
