It’s time again to mark your calendars to attend the annual Gathering of Miatas on August 17th. As we did in past years, we have scheduled the cabana at Griot’s Garage in Tacoma for our event this year. If you attended Detailin' Day this year, then you got to experience the quality of the Griot's products, as these were used in this year's detailing activities.
If you have never been to Griot’s in Tacoma, then you are missing out! It’s a great place to stock up on your car polishing supplies. As one of our partners, Griot’s Garage welcomes us every year to host our gathering in their parking lot. Additionally, they sponsor a one-hour tech program where the explain the use of the car maintenance supplies they sell and why they are such good products. Their address is: 3333 S. 38th St, Tacoma. You can check out their website at ‘www.griotsgarage.com’
So, we’ll start off at 10 a.m. with the “Drive-In” to Griot’s and to give you an hour to spiff up your car. Then the Tech Program begins at 11 a.m. followed by lunch, which will be cooked and served by your PSMC Board of Directors. Following lunch, you can view the Miatas and vote for the People’s Choice winners. We’ll wrap up the day with the raffle of some Griot's products and a few other car goodies.
Please Do bring something to sit in or on just like you would bring to a picnic! (i.e.: a folding chair or blanket). There is a large grassy area surrounding the bbq pits for this purpose.
Upon check-in, you’ll receive a nametag and one raffle ticket. You are welcome to purchase as many raffle tickets as you like for the wide variety of prizes we’ll have for you to win. Tickets will go for $1 each or 6 for $5. The day should wrap up by 2 p.m. so you can drive on to an evening event elsewhere.
