Cruises / WPMC ANNUAL PICNIC - AUGUST 29, 2020
« Last post by Ron Hoffman on July 03, 2020, 09:14:38 PM »
West Penn Miata Club
Annual Picnic

Have you set aside Saturday, August 29, 2020 for our Club’s annual picnic?  If not, then mark your calendars now.  As in past years, the picnic is a good time just to relax and enjoy conversation with other club members.  Unfortunately, due to the COVID pandemic there will need to be changes in our food provisions – details below

The picnic will be held at the same time and location as in previous years, from 11:00AM to 4:00PM at the Maple Grove in White Oak Park.  Reservations are required and as in the past, the Club will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, condiments in individual packets, soft drinks and water.  In order to minimize handling of food and serving utensils by multiple individuals as recommended by State and local officials, there will be NO covered dishes this year.  Instead, everyone is asked to bring his or her own sides (NO SHARING) plus plastic-ware and paper products (plates, napkins, etc.)  If you want additional garnishes burgers such as lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, etc. then bring those too (AGAIN, NO SHARING).

I need HELP!!   If anyone has ideas for games where you don’t handle and share balls, bean bags, horseshoes, etc. then please get back to me: rhoffman@westpennmiataclub.com or 724-392-7932.  I would really appreciate any help you can give me including providing and running the game, if possible.  Also, games where we drive our cars in the parking lot are out.  The last couple of years we had to share the parking lot with a large group at the picnic grove right next to us so there was no room for “car games”.
 
Please RSVP to my wife Pat at pat.hof@hotmail.com or 724-392-7932 by August 22nd along with your headcount.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and having “fun”.  Also don’t forget your FACEMASKS!!

Cruises / Covered Bridge Cruise
« Last post by DaveKopco on June 29, 2020, 05:37:37 PM »

***Due to increasing Covid 19 cases Luanne and I have decided to postpone this cruise until a later time.***

Luanne and I would like you to join us on our covered bridge cruise on July 11th.  The cruise will take us through 2 covered bridges in Somerset County and 4 in Bedford County with plenty of back road driving along the way. Along with the six covered bridges that we will drive over there will also be two that we will pass that we cannot drive over. We will make a quick stop at the scenic “Packsaddle” Bridge for pictures and to see waterfall beneath it.  Lunch will be at the Jean Bonnet Tavern, hopefully outside. Don’t forget your masks! We will be leaving from Sheetz #60, 118 S. Rosina Ave., Somerset at 9:30am and be back in Somerset by 3:30 for ice cream at Molly’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Please respond by Sunday, July 5th to:
Dave  -  dlkopco@gmail.com.   (814)421-0857

Another great cruise today, with a really unique twist! Also loved the group picture with all of us and our Miatas in front of the UFO! Glad the weather held the entire way there also. Lots of top down glory. Thank you Don for a fun cruise!

It was indeed a beautiful, great day for a cruise!! With well-maintained roads, a fast flow of traffic, plenty of sun and a lovely resort destination, we really couldn't have asked for more! The highlights for me were definitely reconnecting with the club, discovering a new resort that I didn't even know existed before the cruise, the 170 year-old double-lane covered bridge in Philippi, WV, and of course, zoomin down some of the best roads in the region! Here are some pictures I took during the cruise just to give those who couldn't come some idea of how pretty the route was. And I promised Linda and Walt I'd say this, but coming from your youngest member, this cruise was the most fun I've had in many many months!!
