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 2013, we have 324 members, with 218 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.
As we bring 2014 to a close, the Windy City Miata Club has much to be thankful for. We have had a great year! We had tours to new places, and tours led by members who had not hosted a tour in the past. We’ve had brand new events and we’ve gone to new places. We have had months’ worth of standard club events that went smoothly, with nice attendance.
At the end of November we held our annual Toys for Tots night. We were fortunate to have two Marines join us. It’s always a great thing to have the Marines spend the evening with us. I have to say it was interesting listening to these young men tell stories of their deployments but it was really great to see their reaction to the amount of toys that were brought by our club members. Thank you to all who came out that night and for your generosity in donating all those toys.
With the busy holiday season, our monthly breakfast and our burger night were the only events on the calendar for December. The breakfast (Dec. 6th) at the Double Yolk was great. The burger night (Tuesday Dec. 9th) features an ornament exchange, which is a new twist on a Christmas activity for us.
Yes, we smile as we see what a good year it was for us. But 2015 will be another great year! Did you know that in 2015 the Windy City Miata Club is going to be 25 years old? That is quite an accomplishment! So we view 2014 in the rearview mirror and look out the windshield at 2015!
I look forward to seeing you at our annual Banquet in January. In the meantime, have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays, whichever works for you.
