Intro from the President

Dear Road Benders,

For those that don't know me I'd like to introduce myself. - My name is Jose Jimenez.

No wait, that's not right, my name is really Tom Cinealis, (and I'm way too young to remember that joke). Actually, I'm returning as your president for the 2016 season. I was a past president of the BMC, but for some reason you dear people were foolish enough to let me get back in the middle of things.
And as you'll learn I'm a bit of a jokester.

My wife and I have been members since about 2000, and currently own 3 Miatas between the 2 of us. A 94' Lagunas blue that I've been hiding in my garage for the last couple of years, my wife's personal black 2001, and a 2008 marble white. (The best color ever made because if you don't wash it for a couple weeks, it generally doesn't show the dirt, unless of course you go off-roading.)
And we are avid Miata people!

I like to do spirited drives on the back roads of America -- you know the ones, they have names like Coon Valley Road and Harpers Ridge Road. They're small, sharp-cornered and loaded with the curves our little cars love to hug. And the only thing better than a road with a switch back, is being able to turn around and do it in both directions, but that's enough about me.

First thing - I would like to thank the outgoing staff of our club for their hard work and dedication to the Badgerland Miata Club. As well as all those members that put on, or participated in an event this year. We all know what kind of hard work and dedication it takes to put on any event, for any group.

Thank You all!

I'd also like to welcome, (and thank in advance), our new and returning officers, including those folks that signed up to do an event. I'm certain they will make the upcoming year special as well.

This brings me to my last reason for writing this introduction. Every year our club members put on a number of events, but many of us never feel we've created enough of them for a club of our size, which stretches across our great driving state. Don't get me wrong, we have some great rides and get-togethers coming up. Some include our cars and some don't. What I'm going to be asking of our membership this year is more impromptu events. Flash events if you like. If you have an idea for a ride you want to try out invite a couple of members to follow you, don't worry if the ride isn't perfect. As Dave Bonfield used to say; "It isn't a complete ride until you do a U-turn".

If you're planning to go out to dinner with a club member, invite another BMC couple that might live close. You don't need a big party, just a slightly bigger one to better get to know your fellow road benders.

I'd like our theme for the 2016 year to be THINK SOCIAL -- DRIVE LOCAL. We all joined to have some fun, so let's get the party started.

And as always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me, or any of your staff, to see if we can help you with your Miata question.

Thanks, Tom C. Prez

The Planning Session had much discussion.
