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 Spring 2023 Newsletter
This is my welcome back Newsletter. We are just now getting back to planning and scheduling our events for 2023. I ask for your forgiveness for not writing my Newsletter since last year.
We will continue to have our monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of the month at the American Legion Hall in Wantagh. Thanks to Ray Cody for the setup and pizza order every month.
We had our Christmas Party at the Legion Hall in January and it was a great success. We are planning to also have this year's party at the Legion Hall. Ray and Linda again offered to host our BAMC picnic at their son Tim's home in Manorville in July. Tim is a DJ by trade and entertained us throughout the party last year.
A recap of other events for 2022 includes the Andirondack Nationals at Lake George, NY and a 12 day bus tour of all the major National Parks from Arizona to Mount Rushmore. The Utah Club met us at one of our hotel stops and took us on a spectacular ride, in their vehicles, around the mountains of Utah.
We also went on a 3 day ride to Lancaster, PA and the Amish country where we met up with the PACE Miata Club. They were happy to take us around the Lancaster area and the many Covered Bridges. Some of the New Hampshire Club members also joined in. We stopped for dinner at an Amish farm house.
Of course we also had our Annual Pie Run the weekend before Thanksgiving which is always our most popular event as we do what we do best which is eating. While Ellie and I have led many of these Pie Runs, I would like to see some members step up this year and create a new Pie Run. Ellie and I would be happy to help you with planning and leading a ride.
In the summer we will be resuming our beach get together events when possible and we will rotate to a different beach, weather permitting, every week or so.
On a sad note, long time members Fred and Lucille Seden have decided to cancel their membership and give their Miata to their daughter. They are always welcome to attend any of our events when they can. Thanks to them for their many years of support to the club.
In January, unfortunately a water pipe broke in an unheated part of the Legion Hall. Ray worked tirelessly with the insurance to get the floor replaced so we could get back to our meetings.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support. See all of you at the next meeting, Bob.
