  • I want to thank my Miata Club family for all your thoughts and prayers for my mom the past few months during her battle with leukemia. Unfortunately she lost her fight this week but I find solace in the fact she […]

    • Mark, condolences on your loss. Your dedication to family is admirable. You set a fine example of a caring son, father and friend.

    • Mark, sorry to hear that. Our condolences go out to you and the family.

  • Fellow members,
    Our club is at a crossroads. Over the past 3 months I have been unable to lead the charge in coordinating events due to illness in my family. John has reached out to everyone for help but other […]

    • I’m not sure we need to ring the bell of dire and doom. We have lots of members involved in planning and executing events. Yes, there are problems with Lester’s Diner so we’ll meet at 84 Diner again as we have in the past. They are welcoming and appreciate our business.

    • Mark, you are a beloved and valuable member of this group. Your concerns are appreciated and respected. You don’t owe anyone an apology. Let’s find the best ways to move the club forward, develop great programming and have more fun.

      • Mark, first I want to thank you and everyone else that puts a ton of effort to volunteer your time to organize events. I would like say it again, thank you for volunteering. However, please keep in mind that you are volunteering and that you cannot force people to volunteer.

        That being said, I am also sorry that I cannot attend the meetings any longer as Sunday dinner is family time for us.

        Maybe with the change in venue, we can return to a lunch schedule and I may be able to attend the meetings again. I do not want to volunteer for stuff and make suggestions if I am not able to attend the meetings, as I do not want to step on toes or make waves.

    • I have been a member of socially-oriented clubs, many of which were car-related. I was secretary of the Fort Lauderdale Mustang club back in the mid-80’s. I am a member of the NSX Club of America. I have participated in and volunteered for track and autocross not-for-profit clubs and and for-profit companies. Nearly universally, the successful ones had one thing in common: a benevolent dictator. A club such as ours needs such a person to steer the club, set the tenor, organize and follow through. Not saying he or she needs to do everything; quite the contrary. A good leader knows how, when, and what tasks to delegate. Lou and John shared this responsibility for as long as I have been involved, and it worked incredibly well. After expending much effort, Lou requested less involvement. John already is heavily involved in the local British car club. I understand that in the past Karl fulfilled this role. I don’t know the history prior to that, but from what I understand and have viewed myself, these three did a wonderful job. But maybe it’s time for a new person to fill this role.

  • This commentary in no way is approved or reflects the feelings of the club presidents or hierarchy. It is my opinion only. It is very sad to me that in a time of the year when comradery should be at it’s highest […]

    • We’ve had a much better presence at this event in the past. I know it’s a busy holiday season, and we all have to make choices about how we schedule our time and resources. This event is different from a simple road trip. It reflects on our group’s standing and reputation in the community. Let’s brainstorm on how to better approach this event, how to instill some enthusiasm and how to help each other decorate the cars. The club has a long history of participating in children’s parades. If the decision is made to continue this tradition, it must with with broad support of the members and we must respect that commitment. If not, let’s look for other avenues of engagement.

    • Sorry you feel that way Mark. Maybe it’s not a statement on our holiday spirit. Maybe it’s an indication that club members simply don’t think that particular event is worth attending. It’s possible you are projecting your own enthusiasm for this event onto the membership as a whole. It’s entirely possible the event itself is not as attractive to the membership as you may otherwise think. Actions speak loudly. And yes, I am one of the 147 members who chose not to participate.

  • For those of you attending next weeks Holiday Party and Tradewinds Park Light Show, attached is a discount coupon for the light show. Enjoy the event. Also , please remember to bring items for the homeless shelter […]
