Tech Day, Ladies Day and Mud Run
by Marcy Hotz

    On a cloudless, pleasant Saturday morning, we arrived around 9:15 at Dave Weiskoff's large shop, DCAR (Dave's Certified Auto Repair) in Waunakee. Hank N says Dave knows all things Miata, having been one of the BMC's official Tech Advisers for years. All the men and a few women joined in a circle surrounding Dave and began asking questions about how to prepare cars for winter storage; should we buy turbo-chargers and what type; what are the best kind of tires for our cars; etc. The questions and answers kept coming, and the session could have happily lasted all day (but it didnt).
    Meanwhile, in another section of the shop, the women sat at tables pre-set with craft supplies to create and decorate gift bags and boxes. Other embellishments were laid out on more tables from which we could choose colored flowers, die-cut pictures and forms, sparkly things and ribbons which would be glued onto said bags and boxes. This we agreed could have gone on happily all day too (but it didn't).
    We wrapped up about 11:30 and drove to a nearby Culver's or McDonald's for lunch where we could renew our acquaintances and schmooze before the drive.
    And what a ride it was! The first leg was 42 miles of twists and turns. A rainbow of 16 cars followed Hank and Laura up and down and around the picturesque countryside, enjoying the sudden greenery of the landscape after a cold, wet, grey April.

BMC CLOTHING Sale May 12 -25

We are working with a local company, TOOLS OF MARKETING, (TOM), in Sauk City, WI to handle our clothing and other items with the BMC logo. They have created a web site where BMC members can view and order available items. The web site is https://badgerlandmiata2022.itemorder.com/shop/sale/ and it will be open until May 25th.

Sign up is now available for the Mini Car Museum Drive event.
We will start our event at the Kwik Trip #833 Gas Station at the corner of Hwy 14 and County Road P in Cross Plains, WI. It is across the street from the Culver's Restaurant which will be convenient for lunch before our drive. We will assemble at 12:30pm and have a driver's meeting about 12:45. At 1 pm we will begin the first leg of our drive. About 2:30 we will arrive at the Midwest Micro Car Museum, 103 Crescent St in Mazomanie. We will see some of the strangest cars you have ever seen. From "bubble cars" to a motorcycle that folds into its own suitcase. See CALENDAR OF EVENTS! for complete ride information and how to sign up.

Sign up is now available for the August 13 B.A.C.K.   2.0 Ride. We will start gathering at the Kwik Trip #139 Gas Station just east of I-43 at Exit 120 at 11:30.

Road America Spring Fest

Sign up is now available for the SVRA Spring Vintage Racing Festival Event. The event will start with an optional breakfast then a drive to Elkhart Lake. There will be an option of driving on the track during racings lunch break. See CALENDAR OF EVENTS! for complete information.

Per Road America all veterans with ID get free admission to the race.

With our wonderful Wisconsin spring weather I recommend bringing extra warm clothes along with lawn chairs and an umbrella. Also, race cars can get very loud so having ear protection is recommended.
