BMC 35th Anniversary Celebration Planning Update

In 2015 the Badgerland Miata Club celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Miata, as well as our 25th anniversary of the BMC.

Some events we held during the weekend celebration included a lunch on Friday followed by a Kettle Moraine drive to Holy Hill, and fish fry dinner at Fox and Hounds; on Saturday a "Funcana" (a test of skills using your Miata), a banquet dinner Saturday, with special guest Tom Mattano (designer of the Miata) as keynote speaker; a visit to a glass museum on Sunday; and many other fun things throughout the weekend.

The BMC Board is planning a 35th Anniversary celebration in a similar way, over 3 days, in late July or early August, 2025. A committee has been established and is seeking ideas for this event, as well as volunteers to plan and coordinate each aspect of the celebration. We are looking for:

  • Registration coordinator
  • Photographer
  • Prize coordinator/purchaser (we will have a budget for this)
  • Decorations (several people) & table centerpieces
  • Drives (& meals)
  • Funcana helpers
  • Locate past members, club founders
  • Hospitality room
  • Other fun/interesting things to do (museums to visit, etc.)
If you have ideas for how and where to celebrate, and/or would like to help in the planning and coordination of any part of this, or volunteer at the event, please contact Tim Deadrick, 35thAnniversary Committee Chair, at or call 262-914-4051.
