We had a couple of cancellations for June so I picked one of the club’s fave roads.  Joe & I headed out this past weekend to find roads to go with fave road to a destination that intrigued me.  Oh! we did find some great new roads.  Ones we had never zoomed before.  Along our journey we found couple of stops we felt club would be interested.  This would require fellow cruisers to bring a cooler or large insulated thermal bag with ice.  You may be enticed by local produce & grain feed angus beef and we want you to be prepared.

Once we reach our destination you will find attractions that could be two or three different cruises all in one place.  Our restaurant serves local or organic produce and meats from local farms when possible.  This restaurant will take us back in time.  Ice cream will end our day.  So join us for our mystery adventure with some great roads.

We will need an immediate response because cruise is in 10 days.

Date:  Sat June 8th

Time:  9:00 am

Meeting Place:   Sheetz #314 - Junction Rt 22 & Rt 981 in New Alexandria

Cruise Category:  Sporty to Zoomin

No, not a car!

Cruises / MAY 11, 2019 - COAL MINER CRUISE
« Last post by ZoomZ on May 30, 2019, 06:53:09 PM »
Coal Miner Cruise by Scott Coatsworth
The Laurel Highlands are one of my favorite playgrounds, with great roads, great hiking and biking, and great waters. We will be meandering
from Blairsville to Jennerstown, with the hills in almost full-dress green.
Just before the end of the drive, we will stop at the Quecreek Mine Rescue Site. Perhaps you remember the story – July 24, 2002, nine men trapped underground after a mine collapse. First order of business is a comfort stop – they have two sets of bathrooms. Then we can meander through the site and listen to a presentation about the events of those three days. I think it will be very interesting.
There is a charge of $7 per person, $6 for veterans.
Leaving the Rescue Site, we will take a short drive to Jennerstown to eat at the Coal Miners Cafe. That will be followed by an interesting drive on RT 30 to Ligonier that takes us down more than 1,700 feet in elevation. To keep Joe happy, we will stop for ice cream at Ligonier Creamery.
Cruisers can then make their own way home via RT 30 West through the scenic Loyalhanna Gorge or by following RT 711 South to the Pennsylvania Turnpike at Donegal.
Date & Time : Saturday, May 11, 2019 - Please arrive on time, fill the Miata’s tank, empty yours, and be ready for our usual meeting at 9:30 AM. We will saddle up and leave at 10:00 AM.
Meeting Place: Walmart on RT 22, 300 Resort Plaza Drive, Blairsville, PA 15717, at the far left end of the building.
RSVP: By Friday, April 26 (the restaurant needs a head count by Saturday) to or 412- 951-3340.
Cruise Type: Sporty

If you want to put your driving skills and your noggin to the test, plan on joining a bunch of us that will run the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Road Rallye on July 7th.  It is a fun way to traverse the city in areas you may never have driven in before. All the while, you are trying to meet the precise time that it takes from checkpoint to checkpoint and answer trivia questions. It gets the navigator and driver to sync with each other in a way that is fun and funny too! The last group we had thoroughly enjoyed the day. Let's see if we can get more than 10 cars this year.   

Contact the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix web page at
We've done this several years ago and had 10 cars take on this fun, but competitive, mystery course that will test your driving, navigational and trivia skills through the Pittsburgh countryside. We meet as group just short of the starting point at Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park. Then we'll enter as a club. It is an impressive sight to see all those Miata's lined up for the run.

Following the Rallye, enjoy an after party at the Red Robin at the Pittsburgh Mills consisting of a trip to the Gourmet burger bar, side dish, soft drinks, dessert and awards. You'll get excited to be to exploring the backroads north and east of Pittsburgh.  All for fun and the support of the PVGP charities! So hurry and sign up before the price goes up. Once you've signed up let Leeanna and me know by emailing us at Let's show the Grand Prix how ZOOMIN' THE BURGH really looks!
