President's December Message

Hi All.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and any other happy and or merry that may be celebrated this time of the year.

First of all I would like to recognize and thank Tom Cinealis for his many outstanding years of service to the Badgerland Miata Club. A big thanks goes out to Jim Loeffler for stepping into the V.P.-S.E. I left vacant and to all the other officers and staff who have remained on board for another year.

Last but not least, all of you who planned and hosted events in 2016. I know how much work goes into the planning and hosting of an event. We would not be the club we are without all your input and help.

Personally I was first exposed to the Badgerland Miata Club and its members almost 17 years ago. Since then some members have moved from the area and are no longer part of our group. However, these people and current members have shaped for me what this club is all about. Over the years I have attended driving and non-driving events that are too numerous to mention except to say they were all fun. Looking at the schedule generated from the planning meeting it looks like 2018 will be another great year. So jump in and join us. We have events planned from dinner theater, cruising for new ice cream stops, going to watch sports car racing, and multi-day road trips. There is something for everyone.

Don Gervais President

Clauson Family, Christmas on the Farm

December Club Event
BMC has decided to add an event for December. Several club members saw the Clauson Family Christmas Show last year and got it rave reviews, so Henry Netzinger is setting up another event for this December. If you would like to join Henry and Laura Netzinger at this "get you in the Christmas Spirit" program, the date is Sunday, Nov 26. Doors open at noon, dinner starts 12:30, show starts after the dinner. The meal is all home cooked by the Clauson family and employees. They also have items to purchase of course. The location is W13412 County Road CC, Coloma, WI 54930 which is about 30 miles north of Portage, just off Hwy 39. Phone 715-228-2951 or toll free 877-819-2252. The club went there last year with about 18 people and they requested we go to this event again. The event is open to any family and friends who would like to come. Contact the Clauson Family Music Shows directly and say you're with the Badgerland Miata Club; they will seat us together. There are only 30 seats available as of Nov. 6, so get your tickets now! The price is $48.50 which includes dinner, show, and tax. Any questions contact Henry at or 608-393-0432 and let him know you are going to attend and how many will be coming.

Upgrading BMC Webpage

It was decided at the planning meeting that a committee will investigate updating the club web page to make it more attractive for people browsing the web and eliminate some problems when viewing our web page using apple products. If anyone has any suggestions on changes they would like to see made to the web page please email them to webchanges@badgerlandmiataclub,com. Also feel free to look at other Miata Club web pages for ideas that would improve ours. I have created a hyperlink located in the member only section called WEB Page Change Requests. By clicking on the hyperlink you will be able to view all the changes that have been requested. The committee will meet some time in late March or early April and review the requested changes and determine the cost and then report back to the members.
