As we are now deep into our Fall Season I reflected on our wonderful summer and the many great rides we have had. It seems as though everyone was bursting at the seams to get out to enjoy the rides and the spectacular weather we experienced. Indeed, we experienced record attendance at our rides this year. I think everyone was tired of the pandemic and couldn’t wait to get back out and enjoy life!
We have witnessed good attendance at our First Tuesday event, albeit the new venue seems to appeal to more folks. Our First Tuesdays on the North end will continue during November and December and then will begin anew in the New Year.
Your PSMC Board met virtually at the end of October. As was reported during our Board meeting, we have seen an uptick in our membership this year which indicates our club is alive and well.
One of the things discussed was to move the Member Appreciation Luncheon to January 15th. Our venue for this event will be the same, the Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Tukwila. We decided that as there are numerous activities that occur around the holidays, we opted to push this event out to this revised date. Besides, it will give us all something to look forward to when things are less hectic!
The primary focus of this Fall Board Meeting is to begin our event planning for the coming year. I must say, I am excited for what is being planned and I believe you will be too! There will be exciting new and returning favorites that you will notice with the upcoming 2022 event calendar so be sure to have a look.
I look forward to seeing everyone in January and I am excited about our event offerings for 2022. Cindy and I would like to wish everyone the very best during this holiday season with joyous activities centered around family and friends.

The Puget Sound Miata Club was the first Miata club in the United States to join and be recognized as a member of the Miata Club of America. Our claim as the "First Miata Club in the Nation" is based on this fact. Our original club name was:
Our Membership is based in the Puget Sound region of Western Washington and hosts many events each year with several reaching into neighboring states and provinces. The club was organized to share the fun of owning a Miata and to maximize the enjoyment of driving a great roadster.
We do this in a variety of ways - we publish a newsletter 9 months of each year with information about the Miata and our activities; we organize and participate in sports car events such as driving tours, rallyes, autocrosses, driving schools, gymkhanas, and concours d'elegance; we arrange technical sessions to learn more about the Miata and its care; we have parties!; we go to sports car races; we caravan to other Miata or car club events; and we participate in parades.
Unlike many sports car organizations in the Northwest, we do not specialize in any one-type of activity. As a group, we have opted to sample everything. This leverages the opportunities for our Miata fun.
We are a Miata information resource to each other. We know where and what to purchase for the Miata and the best prices available. We get discounts from many dealers and repair shops in the area.
Basically, we have more fun in and with our Miatas. Our organization has been in existence since 1989 and has a current membership in excess of 145 Miatas. Join Us and enjoy your Miata to the fullest!
