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 2014, we have 328 members, with 221 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 2015

The year is quickly slipping away.  Hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the 3rd quarter of the year.  As usual, WCMC is far from short on events.  We have our usual events planned for the month: a burger night, a breakfast, and autocrosses.  It wasn’t so long ago that our autocross season would have been over by now.  Not so this year:  we have not one but four autocrosses this month!  Our autocross coordinators certainly will be tired by the time September draws to a close.  Also on the calendar is the long-awaited “Rollin on the River” tour, and of course we have a general membership meeting at the end of the month.

One of our aftermarket performance parts vendors has remarked in the past that WCMC has an amazing relationship with several dealerships in the area, which I might add is not the norm for most Miata clubs across the country.  We hit a peak last month with over 40 of our members attending Continental Mazda of Naperville’s anniversary party.  There were special displays, and games that tested our ability to change tires at race team speed.  Some folks tried their hand at virtual surfing (Maybe it’s a good thing we are in the Midwest.)  It was a fantastic evening of wonderful food, great door prizes and lots of fun — a time for us to enjoy celebrating another great year of success with the wonderful staff at Continental.  We thank them for all they do for us.

This has certainly been an exciting year for our club, with amazing events like the joint celebration of 25 years of the Mazda Miata and our Windy City Miata Club.  2015 will go down in the history of our club as a fantastic year.

Looking ahead to October we have our Fall Color Tour, one of our largest events of the year, and always a wonderful day.  Then at the end of the month we will have our trip out to Galena, to enjoy some of our state’s best roads and to take part in the Halloween parade.

If you are just visiting our website to see what our club is all about, you can see we enjoy our cars, but we also enjoy the friendships we have built within our club.  I hope you’ll stop by and experience first-hand what all the excitement is about.
