Zoom to Traverse City
Night #1: Evergreen Golf Resort - Map
Night #2:
RSVP: Don & Karen Diehl: diehldl@aol.com

Friday at Cadillac we have 30 rooms reserved at the Evergreen Golf Resort (formerly McGuires) If those reservations are filled there may be a few additional rooms at the 20% discounted group rate but further rooms will need to booked on your own nearby. Everyone will be able to get seating at dinner with the group at Evergreen if I am notified ahead of time.

Saturday in Traverse City we have only 24 rooms available at the Sleep Inn in Traverse City (there are several weddings and other events occurring that weekend). Rates are discounted from $153 to $171 under Michigan Miata Club. If you are too late to register there, other area hotels will be higher.

Please notify me when you book: diehldl@aol.com

From Cadillac, Saturday morning we will head NW up M115 to M22 for the scenic shoreline drive through Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, voted the most beautiful area in the country by Good Morning America. There will be a lunch stop in the area later to be determined. We then will continue around the Leelanau Peninsula to the Sleep Inn in Traverse City. We hope to make a wine tour on the mission Peninsula followed by dinner.

Sunday morning we can head up to the fabulous Tunnel of Trees north of Harbor Springs followed by lunch in Harbor Springs or Petoskey. We expect that some of us will then group drive back to their home area while others may book a third night in the area.

We still need some volunteer chairpersons for some areas:
  • Route planning - need exact route details to prepare maps.
  • Lunch reservations on the route.
  • Budget - We will need to get a deposit to cover some gift items and a decal for the door of the car showing a map of Michigan with the Miata logo and Traverse City highlighted.
  • Mazda sponsorship - We have a volunteer with corporate Mazda contact that has stepped up. Thank you!
  • Printing - We need maps and info for navigators.

Waterford Hills SpecMiata Racing
Free general admission for club members, kids 15 and under are free. The only rule we have is no outside food or drink, but it is very inexpensive on site. Paddock passes are additional, as are touring laps for those who wish to drive on track during race breaks. Our Spec Miata races never disappoint, more so as that will be the season championship weekend.
I think the easy way to do this is anybody who drives a Miata to the track gets in free. Map
