The Club membership is planning on participating at the annual Green Cove Springs Christmas Parade. It is a fun time to decorate your car and show your Miata Christmas Time Spirit.
This "Drive" will be short and at low speed. But it will be fun, because IT'S A PARADE! The club has been invited to participate in the Green Cove Springs Christmas Parade on December 4. It's a night parade, so light up those Miatas! The parade begins at 6PM, but staging begins at 3:30.
We will meet at the RaceTrac Gas Station at 3106 US-17 (32043), just north of Green Cove at 3:00 PM. We will leave there by 3:15 to check in and proceed to the staging area together. You will then be able to decorate your cars and get ready for the parade there. Bring a flashlight- you may need it if you need to remove decorations in the dark after the parade. THE TIMES ABOVE ARE BASED UPON THE 2019 PARADE SCHEDULE AND MAY CHANGE AS THE EVENT NEARS.
The theme for 2021 is the 12 Days of Christmas. Parade organizers have asked all participants to observe this theme in their decorations. I'm sure we'll have plenty of discussion on how to decorate Miatas in such a way!
We will need to let the parade organizers know how many cars will be participating, so please give a response on this event in the comments. NOTE: IF YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE, VISIT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE, PLEASE DON'T CLICK "GOING" WITHOUT LEAVING A COMMENT. Otherwise, clicking "Going" alone will not be counted as participating. There are some instructions for participants that you will need to know in advance, so please let us know if you are participating via facebook!
And of course, EVERYONE is welcome to come to the parade and watch!
The pavilion at Bethesda Park has been reserved for our Club Members Only Christmas party on December 11, 2021. Noon to 4:00 p.m. $10 per person for members and a guest.
Catering by Monroe’s Smokehouse and BBQ.
Menu consists of Pulled Pork, Smokehouse Chicken, Mac & Cheese, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, Sweet Potato Soufflé, Texas Toast, Monroe’s Signature Sauces, Sweet & Un-Sweet Tea, and Lemonade. Guests are encouraged to bring a dessert to serve 6-8. This is optional.
Each person who wishes to participate in the Gift Exchange will bring a wrapped gift valued at $25 or less. Use your imagination.
The gift does not have to be car related. There will be door prizes and lots of gifts compliments of your local Mazda dealers, First Coast Miata Club, and Moss Miata. If you have any Miata related items you no longer want, bring them for our “Give and Take” table.
RSVPs in the form of payment must be in by November 15.
See your flyer that was emailed to all membership October 15, 2021.
Payment by cash/check/credit card can be made at the November meeting.
We will need several volunteers for set up at 11:00 a.m. and to restore the room to its original condition at 4:00 p.m. If you are available for one or both times, please notify Paula at the next meeting.
It’s been a while and we look forward to this fun event. Hope to see everyone there!
