2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Maryland Tech Session - Wednesday, October 8

Technical Sessions (or Tech Nights) are sponsored by MSCW in conjunction with local dealers or automotive establishments. Tech Sessions provide an opportunity for you to raise your Mazda on a lift and perform minor maintenance with the help of professional mechanics and/or fellow MSCW Club members. Minor maintenance is classified as work you can perform yourself usually within an hour or two. Routine maintenance such as fluid changes (oil, tranny, bleeding brake lines), gaskets, brakes, tire rotations, fuel filter changes, etc. are the most common repairs during Tech Sessions.

The next Maryland tech session is scheduled for Wednesday, October 8 at Gaithersburg Mazda. The Tech Session begins at 6:30 pm and we need to be packed up by 8:45 pm. Membership required to use the service bays. RSVP required to reserve a lift. RSVP with name, car model and whether you need to use a lift to Jim Heintze. Must bring your own tools. Mazda techs and club members available for advice.

Visitors welcome to observe. Parts department will be open and offer discounts to members. You do not need to use what you buy that evening. Stock up for the future to show appreciation for the dealership hosting our event.

MSCW Shirts Online

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

http://ces.landsend.com/MSCW

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

Landsí 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

Landsí 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.

Iíve added a variety of items to the e-store already, but if you see something on their general business outfitters site that youíd 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.
