The MidState Miata Club of New York is an organization dedicated to the enjoyment of the Mazda Miata roadster. Our primary objectives are to provide an opportunity for Mazda Miata owners and enthusiasts to exchange ideas and information, as well as to participate in group events involving the Miata.
The Club schedules at least one "official" event each month from April through November. These local events are selected from ideas and suggestions presented by the membership during the annual planning meeting that occurs each winter. We schedule events to interesting points in New York State as well as occasionally organize overnight trips to more distant locations. The Club also schedules informal evening gatherings for ice cream every two weeks during the warmer months. There are also frequent impromptu get-togethers among members, if for no other reason than to have someone to share the road with.

As you may know, Deane Bergstrom has stepped down from the newsletter editor position that he held for what seems like forever. Our new editor, Christie Ingram, is planning some major technology upgrades to the newsletter. As a result, the first newsletter is still a little ways off from being published. We don’t want to keep our members in the dark about what’s happening with the club, so this Pre-Newsletter is going out now.
We held the planning meeting on March 11th and developed the event calendar, which appears (on the calendars page). I also assumed the President role from Karen McKissock. Thank you Karen! All the other officers from last year remain unchanged.
This season’s first event is Opening Weekend at Watkins Glen International Raceway on April 9th. We meet at the Watkins Glen Wal-Mart at 10:15. (There will be other optional meeting places for those who would like to caravan from further-out areas to Wal-Mart.) We then drive to the track and stage for three paced laps of the racetrack. A $25 donation (which goes to charity) is required for each set of 3 laps.
We’ve done this for a few years and it’s a fun time, even more so when it’s not snowing!
Until the first real newsletter comes out, please check the web site for all you need to know. Your area reps will advise you of any area-specific events. Also, please be sure to pay your $30 dues to Ronnie Sabella for this season ASAP! Ronnie’s address is 401 Swansea Ave, Syracuse NY 13206.
I’m looking forward to a great driving season. See you on the road!
Ray Mosher - President
