The Windy City Miata Club (WCMC) is a not-for-profit organization designed to promote the enjoyment of good will and fellowship derived from owning a Mazda Miata. Though most of our membership is located in the Chicagoland area, we have members in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and other states. As of the end of 2015, we have 310 great members, with 211 Miatas.

You're invited to join us at our next meeting or activity! Regular club meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month at Fuddruckers in Downers Grove (Click here).

New and prospective members are always welcome at our events. Some events may require an RSVP to the organizer. If you want more information about an upcoming event, please email the event organizer at the address shown on the event page or you may contact us here.

A Word from our President - September 2017

WOW! What a run!

When I agreed to serve as president, I was given a list of the “unwritten duties” of the WCMC president. Had I not already agreed to serve, I would have thought it was written to scare me off. Actually, the list is a good thing to have. It prevents the president from being blind-sided by others’ assumptions and it really isn’t an onerous list. It’s only a half-page and includes some things I really enjoy – like reflecting on our shared experience and writing the columns for this website and the newsletter.

One of the more obvious duties was stated as “Does best to attend all WCMC functions.” That didn’t seem too burdensome. After all, I’m retired now and have “plenty of time.” And most years Judy and I have been actively involved in Club activities.

However, I didn’t fully realize what this duty would entail. When I describe WCMC to people outside the Club I sometimes jokingly say “It’s not a club, but a cult. It gives you something to do every week from April through October.” I underestimated! For the months of July and August, we have averaged almost 3 events a week. Wow! No wonder I feel like I’ve been running – and I haven’t even made it to every event.

A huge word of thanks to the folks who put in the time, energy, and enthusiasm to plan the events we all enjoy. Planners and hosts and tour leaders have included relatively recent members as well as some of us “old-timers.” You make the Club what it is. And thanks to all the members who come out to support the events and add to the fun.

It’s been a great summer so far. Thanks for keeping me running.
