At Mazda's MX-5 Miata ride and drive event, you’ll be able to get behind the wheel, rev it up and feel its incredibly nimble handling, nearly precise 50-50 balance and the unique driving dynamics that have made the MX-5 an icon.

Mazda experts will be on hand to guide you through our exciting Braking, Stability Control, and Hot Lap driving stations. Plus, as our gift to you, we’ll video your experience and provide driving data that you can have on a souvenir USB drive.

Our August drive starts at the Mt. Hebron High School in Ellicott City, MD (just west of the US29/I-70) intersection, and follows a northwesterly path towards the mountains, skirting around the north of Frederick and crossing over towards Myersville. We'll have a stop at Maryland's Washington Monument (reopened after being struck by lightning) and then lunch at Dan's Tap House in Boonsboro. Start time is 10:00 AM, and we should be at Dan's by 12:30 - 1:00. Driving time will be just over 2 hours, with a 45 minute stop at the Monument.

MSCW shirts available online.
MSCW Shirts Online

MSCW logo apparel can now be ordered online through Lands’ End Business Outfitters. We have an e-store at the following URL:

MSCW Shirts Online

The e-store allows you to order items at your convenience. Thanks to Bud Donner for suggesting that we use Lands’ End. They have been good to deal with, they sell quality stuff, and ordering should be a smooth process for everyone.

Lands’ End has a wide variety of items that can be embroidered with the club logo. For a full selection check out their business outfitters website: http://ocs.landsend.com

Lands’ End seems to rotate sales & specials on a weekly basis (item discounts, free shipping, or free embroidery, etc.) so keep an eye on their site if you want to save a few bucks.

I’ve added a variety of items to the e-store already, but if you see something on their general business outfitters site that you’d like me to add to the e-store so you can have it embroidered, let me know. Send item requests and general inquiries to Scott W. or come find me at a club event.
