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 Summer 2022 Newsletter
Due to the COVID issues affecting many of us, the club has not been as active as we have in the past. We are just now getting back in the swing of planning and participating in BAMC rides and events. 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.
Our first major event of 2022 was planned by Paul for a ride to Mystic Seaport Village, CT on May 24-27. We took the Orient Point Ferry over to New London, CT and then drove south to Mystic. We spent the next day at the Seaport Village. We also visited Stonington, CT and the Stonington Lighthouse Museum followed by a 17 mile ride on the winding country roads of CT.
When COVID caused us to cancel our Holiday Party in January, the club agreed to have our Holiday Party in July. Ray and Linda's son Tim offered to have the party at his home in Manorville on July 16th. Tim is a DJ by trade and entertained us throughout the party.
Upcoming events include the Adirondack Nationals at Lake George, NY; a 12 day bus tour of all the major National Parks from Arizona to Mount Rushmore; and a 3 day ride to Lancaster, PA and the Amish country where we will meet up with the PACE Miata Club. Of course our Annual Pie Run the weekend before Thanksgiving is always our most popular event as we do what we do best which is eating.
We are resuming our beach get together events when possible and we will rotate to a different beach, weather permitting, every week. We also welcomed several new members to our Miata family.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support. See all of you at the next meeting, Bob.
