Added Ride, Saturday October 5

By Don Gervais

   Come join us as we take a leisurely meandering cruise through some nice hilly twisty roads on our way to pick up some apples and some of the best Apple muffins around at "The Little Farmer" on the East side of lake Winnebago. You can check out all the goodies including a huge variety of apples, cider, coffee, pies, caramel, and Apple muffins the size of your fist and more at their website.

We will meet at the Citco McDonald's just West of hwy 45 on the South side of Kewaskum. The drivers meeting will be at 11:45am and we will leave at noon. On arriving at "The Little Farmer" we will spend a few hours (depending on what everyone wants) shopping and sampling all the goodies. Afterwards we are planning to go back into Fond du Lac stop at Lakeside park and see if we can get a photo of our Maitas from the lighthouse. From there we are going to go to the Gilies drive in on the South side of the city. Sound like fun? Come join us. Just let me know if you are coming.

Brian Carney Return from Honor Flight

by Marcy Hotz
Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, Inc. honors veterans with a life-changing trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials and experience a day of honor and thanks. - Tonight a group of BMC members joined Ginger Carney and her family to welcome Brian back from his Honor Flight. Organized by Barb and Ed Treick, we had dinner at the Final Approach before heading to Mitchell International. The airport was packed with veterans in uniform, family members waving flags, bands, drummers and honor flight volunteers dressed in bright yellow monitoring the flight. Unfortunately Brian's flight was 2 hours late due to some logistical glitch, so Ed and Barb had to leave. but the Johnses, Staubs and Hotzes decided to wait in the bar. We finally saw Brian at about 10 past midnight. Following a flag presentation, Kettle Moraine High School provided their drum marching corps. Bagpipers played patriotic music, including the songs of all armed forces. Tears streamed from my eyes, the event was so emotionally profound. Finally we spied Brian coming down the parade line. What a wonderful honor to him and all the others who served in our military during times of national conflict. For more pictures go to the photo section on our web page.

Miata Amore Tuscany Tour October 12-20, 2019
   Blue Strada Tours and Miataland in Umbria, Italy have joined together to bring Miata driving enthusiasts a trip through Tuscany and Umbria experiencing some of Italy's wonderful hospitality and some exciting driving through the rolling hills of the region.

  The Miata Amore Tour includes 2 overnights in the Eternal City of Rome, 3 nights in the "World Heritage" city of Siena, and 3 nights just a short distance from Orvieto, in Collazzone. The scenic roads and rolling hills of Tuscany, Lazio, and Umbria are what connect these amazing cities for 8 days. Be assured, it will be a truly magnificent driving experience. Enjoying lunch or a coffee in small villages along the way will endear you to the rural life and culture that Italy is so famous for.

  An extraordinary Miata enthusiast and collector welcomes us to Miataland Resort, a classic Italian villa style inn that also houses his collection of Miatas. Staying at Miataland Resort for 3 nights could be only be enjoyed more by adding guests from around the world where the Miata has captured other enthusiastic owners.
