Our friends at the Mt. Hood Miata Club have sent us information on a weekend of activities in conjunction with one of their biggest driving events. The PSMC will not have a hosted drive to this event, but once you arrive at Mt. Hood, there will be plenty of Miatas for you to join and their peeps to meet!
You can follow this link to their website, where you can register and learn more, but here is an overview of the Hot Lava 2017 +1 Event:
Join us for a touring weekend with route options* to Mt St Helens, Mt Adams, Mt Hood and other Columbia Gorge attractions. You may remember that Mt St Helens became famous when it erupted violently in 1980. Hot Lava has attracted many cars from across the US and Canada, so you may meet many old and new zoom-zoom friends.
HOT LAVA 2018 is $90 for a single participant, and $175 for a pair. The registration fee includes Thursday evening welcome social, entry to all activities/runs [including Saturday lunch], goodie bag, and the Saturday night closing banquet. There will also be an optional Sunday morning breakfast run.
Payment is accepted through this registration process by credit card [our card processor is PayPal, you do not need an account]. Checks can be mailed to the club PO box and need to be received by August 20th. If you received any items for the 2017 Hot Lava please bring them with you as we do not want to duplicate items.
SHIRT NOTES: Registration does not include shirts due to the fact that prior registrants did receive theirs. If you are interested in a shirt please indicate size & style and Kimberly will be in touch with pricing & order details later. [We will have a +1 iron on patch to put next to the original patch on shirts]
OUR PAYMENT PROCESSOR IS PAYPAL. YOU DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO PAY BY CREDIT CARD, SIMPLY PROCESS AS YOU WOULD ANY ONLINE CREDIT CARD TRANSACTION.
