    This drive is limited to 30 cars…and is full

     

    If anyone drops out and cancels their reservation, the website will allow someone to sign up.  Once full, it will say ‘Event Full’

     

    One signup for the car…headcount for the restaurant…we already know that it won’t be more than 60…some cars are singles.

    Lou- You need to sign up on the wait list.  It’s a new feature of the events signup program. You can still enter your name after the event is full. You are put on a wait list.  If someone cancels and uses the website to do it the program automatically emails the first name on the wait list, etc.

    So to all members this reminder:

    If you can’t make an event you signed for up please go to your member page and select the MY EVENTS menu tab then the I’M ATTENDING tab.   Use the list of events to cancel and let another member use your place.

    A small group…5 cars…did a preview ride of the spring Run route…several folks NOT on the list for next week…

     

    I think that everyone will enjoy the twisty bits that Mike Z has laid out…it was definitely fun

     

    See you all next week!!

     

    Don’t forget…monthly meeting Tuesday also

    A little bird just told me that there is another open spot for Sunday…if there is someone else on the waiting list they should get a notification.  That person’s name has disappeared from the reservations list

    I thought “someone” at mtg said 2 or 3 hours, then obviously ending at Wood n Tap for a late lunch. Maybe I didn’t hear right. I’m old.

    This is my 1st Miata run…

    Are there any rules..like…

    No drifting…

    No 120 MPH etc…lol..

    Dont arrive late..

    Are there gonna be pit stops along the way?

    Is there a map of the route?

    We will be in groups…so no drifting

    One pit stop about an hour in

     

    definitely do not arrive late

     

    Written turn by turn available

     

    There will be three groups of about 10 cars each…MikeZ will lead one…i will lead group two about ten minutes later…and Lance will have group 3 about ten minutes after that

     

    the club has 13 radios for those that do not have their own.  The trick is stay close, do not lose site of the car in front of you…and have fun!!

     

    Ride itself is about two hours…plus the rest stop.  then lunch…so it takes up a big chunk of the day.

    Sorry to see you not being able to make it

     

    To cancel, log in to the website…open your Dashboard using the tab.  Look for ‘My Reservations’ or Events I am attending…click on that event and the option to cancel will pop up

     

    If anyone not currently on the list sees this post…just show up!!

    Thanks Mike for a great ride today. I don’t think I have had such a spirited drive in the last couple of years. The roads were great and the ride was organized well. – Jim M

    Good time, good folks, good cars.  I led the ND group and it was a pleasure!  We took 2 wrong turns 1 was an easy turn around, one not so much.  But all in all not bad.

    Reservoir Rd is a great little run!  When in that neck of the woods would search out that Rd again.  Good thing we weren’t hassled by any boys in blue.

     

    Thanks Mike and Linnea for organizing the run.  And for hosting an after hour at your place!

    WOW!!!

     

    What a wonderful day!!  I led the second group and we had a great time.  Yes, i missed one turn…my fault but the turnaround was easy.  Missed another…navigator mis read…but easy fix.  It was nice looking in my mirror and seeing all the pop-ups following me. And a big THANK YOU to Keith and Joan for the wonderful job as tail for our group.  The radios are used for a reason.

     

    thank you Mike and Linnea for laying out a GREAT route.  and hats off to the staff at Wood n Tap.  they did a great job for our group.

     

    Next up is Tech day at Scott and Rita house in New Milford

    A most enjoyable ride today. Nothing like giving it the beans on some fantastic twist and scenic roads, not to mention the tunnel. Thanks much Mike Z for putting together this run. Can’t wait for the next run.

    😊. Yes….. thank you Mike and Linnea for putting together some really great roads,  routes and ride. After working and traveling for many years in Central Ct area, today was a first…. To actually ride through the tunnel on Tunnel Rd.   Glad our group was able to stop and look, before being allowed to drive through together by a very courteous driver going the other way.

    Was great to see you and Mathew, Lance….Cameron was was happy to see him after a couple years. Hope to see you again this season.

    <p style=”text-align: center;”>I’d like to thank you all for attending and the positive response.  My wingman Linnea was key in making this happen and pointing out some great alternatives to the route.  Great ride with a great group of people.</p>

    What a fantastic drive. The ND group was a blast. Thank you Lance.

    As much as I enjoy the other Miatas it was fun to get to rev out the ND a little more than previous runs.
