Annual Membership Appreciation Day & Club Picnic

All Mass Miata members and their families are invited to this annual event, which was started to show the Club's appreciation to all our members and to thank everyone for their participation & support.

If you haven't attended a Club event for a while or, are new to the Club, this is a great time to get together with old friends and to meet new ones.

This year's picnic will be held at Dean Pond area of Brimfield State Forest in Brimfield, MA. This is a group use area with a pavilion should it not be top-down day (weather-wise). See below for directions.

Appetizers will be served beginning at 11:00AM with lunch being served around 11:45-12:00. After lunch Geoff and Wini Findon will lead us in an afternoon ice cream run on some great Miata roads in the area.

There is no cost to members to attend this event. However in an effort to control costs the club will be providing the entrees (pulled pork, hamburgs, and hot dogs) and is asking members to provide appetizers, salads, deserts, soda, etc. potluck-style. Please consider contributing one of the following items and letting Les Barton know what you would like to bring (or ask him what we need). Les will coordinate contributions so we have enough of everything:

  • an appetizer (chips & salsa, pita & hummus, veggie platter, relish dish, etc.)
  • a green salad (lettuce, tomatoes, etc.)
  • a side salad (pasta, potato, cole slaw, bean, etc.)
  • canned soda & ice in a cooler
  • bottled water & ice in a cooler
  • juices
  • a dessert
  • charcoal
  • hamburg or hotdog buns
  • condiments (catsup & mustard, salt & pepper)
  • paper plates
  • paper cups
  • plastic silverware
  • napkins
  • paper towels
  • disposable table cloths
Whether you are able to contribute to the potluck or not, please RSVP to Les by Aug 10th if you are planning to attend so we'll know how much food to purchase and prepare.

Note that we are not allowed to consume alcohol at this site, so please do not bring any with you.
