    • Hood River, OR (Sponsored by the Mt. Hood Miata Club)

    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.  If you are mailing a check you should receive an email invoice with the club address, and the PO Box is also on the bottom of every page of our website.  The total will NOT include shirt cost or upcharges.

    • 09/29/2018
    • 10:00 AM
    • Leavenworth, WA

    This is the last parade of the year and also one of the most enjoyable, with sunshine almost guaranteed so please come out for a fun drive and to help carry a group of hard-working scholarship winners in a beautiful city during it's Autumn Leaf Festival!

    The Miss Viking Fest court need drivers for this parade. We usually need five cars to drive our young ladies down the streets of Leavenworth, where large crowds cheer us on. We could get by with less if any cars are able to carry 2 girls each. (2 of the Viking Fest court are "Little Miss" Viking Fest girls)

    The in-town meeting place will be the Safeway parking lot in Leavenworth between 10:00 and 10:15am, moving over to the check-in area by 10:45 at the latest. The parade starts at noon, so we need time to park, shine and decorate (if you choose to do so) the cars.

    • 3:00 PM
    • Target at Factoria Mall

    Host: Charlotte Fellers

    Jump in your Miata and get ready to "Spot That Thing." In this all-new route, you'll enjoy a fun rallye-type drive.  You'll get a set of driving directions and a page of photos that correspond to sights you will see on the drive. You'll need to take note of the mileage when you "Spot That Thing." At the end of the drive, you'll have an opportunity to win a fun prize.

    The drive usually takes about two hours, and ends in time for happy hour at the Islander Restaurant and Bar, where we'll reconnect and award the spoils to the winner! No need for speed here; just enjoy the scenery and keep your eyes peeled for the "things" along the route.

    This will be mostly an urban drive, so make sure you are ready for a little traffic and most likely, some road construction.

    We'll start from the parking lot of Target at Factoria Mall (this is a change from the originally announced starting point, due to the original starting point costing money for parking!)

    The Driver's Meeting is at 3 p.m. sharp and we'll leave around 3:15. 

    Directions to Target at Factoria Mall:

    From I-405 North or South, take the Coal Creek Parkway Exit and head toward Newcastle (east of the highway). Just after the exit, turn left at 128th Ave. SE (there's a traffic light). After about 1.2 miles, you should see Wal-Mart on the right and immediately after that, Target. Turn right into the parking lot and look for other Miatas. 

    There are restrooms and a snack bar in Target right inside the front door if you need munchies or coffee before starting this drive.

    • Lee Johnson Mazda, Kirkland

    Hosted by:  Puget Sound Miata Club Board

    Have you been on drives this year that were a lot of fun? Think you'd like to give it a try? Then you should put some ideas together and come to this meeting and claim a date for your next drive in 2019!

    This club thrives because our members plan and execute creative and exciting drives through many of our region's most beautiful areas and on the curviest roads in the West. Why not be a part of the planning and organizing so we can keep this a great club!

    This meeting starts at 11 a.m. with a lunch provided by the PSMC Board at Lee Johnson Mazda in Kirkland Motors in their upstairs meeting room. The address is 11845 NE 85th St, Kirkland, WA 98033. Around 11:45 a.m. we'll have new officers' elections. If you are ready to get more involved, contact Charlotte Fellers, our president, and let her know you'd like to join the board. We always have an empty chair!

    Also, at this meeting, we will set the calendar for 2019. If you'd like to host an event, now is the time to start planning your trip and putting it on the calendar so we can be ready in 2019 for a fun road run.

    This is a good time, while the weather is not the best for top-down driving, to start planning the fun events that will fill our calendar in the coming months.

    If you are concerned about your lack of experience in planning and hosting a drive, don't be. The board members serving your club have planned drives in the past and would be glad to co-host or help you plan your own exciting adventure. Just ask! Mostly it involves reading a map and doing a few pre-runs to make sure there are no unexpected road closures or other festivals that might hamper your progress through the course.

    Following the calendar meeting, we'll move right into the business meeting. This is where the board presents our financial report for the quarter and discusses future plans for the club. Any other business that needs to come before the board happens at this meeting. Usually it's a discussion of past events and the planning for future events.

    Remember, the club is only as healthy as its active membership. You might be ready to step up and start being more active. This is a great place to start--all are welcome at this meeting!
