July 2020 Virtual Meeting
« on: July 19, 2020, 04:14:24 pm »
Hello everyone! Your fearless President here coming to say hello from our very first virtual Monthly Meeting. While Chattanooga’s COVID-19 infection rate reaches new daily peaks, we at Scenic City Miatas always want to ensure that our club is operating in the most safe and sanitary way. For the time being we will be hosting our Monthly Meetings through our forum. An email will also be supplemented as well to convey the most information.

From the Newsletter:

Last meeting we discussed our logo change and we have undergone a complete transition to our new SCM Logo. We will be using this logo on all merchandise from this point forward.
Understanding these are rough times with COVID-19, we will be RESCHEDULING the Cookout at the Crockers, originally scheduled for later this month to a later date.

We will be continuing our annual drive to the Tail of the Dragon even though MATG has officially cancelled. There is plenty of talk that there will be plenty of Miatas making the drive anyways. As we are close enough to make a fun day trip out of it we will be joining in on the fun as well. Just remember to follow social distance procedures, mask over the exhaust pipe and 6ft between bumpers everyone!

Discussion based:

Club banner

We will be creating a banner and are accepting donations now. Currently, we need input based on material, size, and design. Our options are:

Mesh: +20% price but will ensure 5 years of use. Right image, air passes through less stress.
Vinyl: +0% price but only ensure 2 years of use. Left image, no air passes through more stress.


Sizes are to be
2.5ft x 4ft or 2.5ft x 6ft or 2.5ft x 8ft


Other than the logo, what would you want to see on a banner as you drive by a bunch of cool Miatas showing off how cool they are? This is something we would use to showcase our group at events, show where to gather, and generally advertise our club presence.


Please reply to this post and tell us your favorite combination Material, size, and design that you would feel best represent our club.

Club Magnets

Due to popular demand, we are ordering club magnets! We are looking to have them printed off in a large sheet of 6+ at a time to save the most on ordering costs. This allows us to cut them as we see fit, but I want to know how you would cut yours if you were to cut it. Would you make it a rectangle, a square, would you put a number on it? Here are a few examples!


Forum and Newsletters

We have tossed around the idea of implementing a newsletter for a little while now. COVID-19 gave us the chance to utilize it. For the future we wanted to use this platform to announce events in the Chattanooga area that may appeal to a Miata audience. This could be a weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly. We are gauging interest now, but we want your opinion on how to make it the best it can be! Our forum has been looking sad because it needs more Miata friends, so we thought it would be nice to cheer it up by hosting a Monthly Meeting here! Let us know if you all would like to do the same and meet here again next month.

For now we will be keeping a very close eye on the current COVID-19 situation and will update via email mailing list and social media outlets to keep you all up to date on information regarding this club.

I was also considering the idea of an oval shaped sticker; what do you guys think?

My preferences:

Mesh banner designed like the first white banner picture shown above.

I would prefer an oval magnet like the new logo.  Maybe a number if it had some sort of meaning.  Rectangles and squares look too much like a business sign.

Virtual meetings are good for now.  I’d like some club runs, but encourage participants to respect the personal space of others.

I like the newsletter.

I like the mesh banner with the logo on the first example, but I also like the city and state. 

Could the city and state be added to the first banner example?

I also like the oval suggestion for the magnets with the city and state.  Do not know a need for the numbers.

A monthly newsletter would be great with special announcements made during the month as needed.

What date and time to meet for the annual Dragon run in August?

How do we make the donations for the banner and magnets?

Questions / questions / questions.....Thank you fearless leader...
