2017 Coastal Run It was the last weekend of January and time for our annual coastal run Due to the extreme rains this year, and mudslides to the north, we decided to go south this year. On Friday AM, 7 SJVMC (San Joaquin Valley Miata Club) cars & members met in Kingsburg along with 2 cars from SDMC (San Diego Miata Club). Heading south we picked up another SJVMC member in Bakersfield. Once at the Magic Mountain area, we picked up yet another SDMC car, and merged onto Hwy 126 heading to the coast. We twisted and turned on Hwy 23 to Westlake Village and had lunch at Boccaccio's along the lake. It was here that the final 8 cars from the SDMC joined in. Following lunch we continued our twists and turns on Hwy 23 to Malibu. We traveled north on Hwy 1, and spent the night in Oxnard. Diner was at the hotel and the group spent the evening socializing.On Saturday, we drove up the coast to Santa Barbara and toured Casa del Herrero, a historic house, garden and workshop. Everyone seemed to enjoy this hidden treasure. The miataphiles were again on the road up the coast to Goleta where we were served sandwiches, chips and cookies by our friends at Moss Motors. Chris at Moss organized the lunch and a tour of their distribution center along with an opportunity to purchase car parts. Following our tour, we meandered up the 101 coast and over to Lompoc. Again, we had social time before our family style dinner at La Botte Italian Restaurant. The dinner was completed with dessert and entertainment by Mama Catarina. The next morning we had a leisure drive up Hwy 1 through farmland and coast to lunch at Sea Shanty in Cayucos. At this point, the SDMC separated from us to head to Cambria. The SJVMC did one last twisty road - Old Creek Road back to Hwy 46, and stopped at Sculpterra Winery in Paso Robles to enjoy the artwork and music (no wine), then back to Fresno. The weather was perfect, and we were able to ride "topless" all weekend. Until next year....Juanita
Are you ready for our annual run to Julian (actually, Santa Ysabel)? The run will start at Corky's (just south of the I-15 and Rt 91 interchange, exiting at Cajalco Road). As usual, we'll drive the back roads to Lake Elsinore, head west of Murietta and Temecula, using De Luz Canyon, one of everyone's most favorite roads, and end up in Santa Ysabel for lunch at approximately 1:30pm.
Juli & I will be at Corky's at 8am for breakfast as it's a looooong time until lunch. Feel free to join us there or just arrive for the run. Driver's meeting at /9:25am, departure at 9:30am.
Phil's Fish Market Lunch in Moss Landing and Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville for pie. Starts and ends in Los Gatos. Times are tentative and will be confirmed later.
Those of you who know Tom and I are probably aware that we have moved to central California. We have joined SJVMC and this year I am in charge of their annual Poker Run. This event is an annual excuse to come to Fresno, support one of California's smallest Miataclubs, and enjoy the awesome county roads in the Sierra Foothills.
The Poker Run this year is being held Saturday May 6. We will be arranging a group booking at a local hotel for those coming from a distance. To make sure that everyone has a good time, we will have two routes for the Poker Run - one for those would want to just enjoy the scenery and a longer one for those who are spirited drivers.
Please put this event on your calendar. As soon as the plans are finalized we will send out all of the details and the registration form.
Hope to see you all at our first run this year: Phil’s Fish Market!
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Yosemite/Oakhurst Event
This is a 3 day weekend run, June 9,10,11. There will be a glorious display from each of Yosemite’s water falls.The rivers will run swiftly and the weather should be warm.I’m soliciting your input for favorite or unique stops. Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Final plans will be made in the next few weeks. I’d like to hear from you. Last year the meeting place on Friday at 2PM was Bass Pro Shop in Manteca (Avoiding heavy traffic). If this is too far out of the way for you, please drive directly to Oakhurst.
And let me encourage you to RSVP early for the run, and make your individual reservations at the hotel,(We have a block of rooms on hold for us until the first week in May at Best Western in Oakhurst at a discount),or another place of your choosing in, or near Oakhurst, however gatherings and breakfast will be at the hotel.
This event begins at the Pauma Valley Community Center in Pauma Valley for the 09:00 driver's meeting. I plan to leave at 09:15. These roads are fantastic! This will be a casual meandering run from there to Banning.
Once again, there will NOT be a Lions Club Poker Run this year, so those of you who have been avoiding this event because of that can rest assured that no other entity will be asking for money in order for you to participate in their previous event.
The Lazy H Motel is booked out on this weekend, hence the alternate launch point. Other (very pricey) hotels available in the area include Harrah's Rincon Casino and the Pala Casino.
From Pauma Valley, I plan to head toward Julian, through Borrego Springs, over to Anza, and then to Idyllwild before ending the run in Banning. This will be a full day of driving!
Lunch will be at County Line BBQ in Warner Springs. This restaurant has unusual meat selections to go along with the usual ones.
The run will end in Banning at about 3:00 P.M. I plan to stop at Gramma's Country Kitchen for dessert.
For those interested, I plan to drive part of the pre-run after the Julian Run on March 5.
This will be a day drive and the route will be kept as a mystery. We'll follow the leader for a fun drive. No worries we will ensure everyone stays together. More details about the meeting location and times will be posted later.
Please join us for a fall run in the Central Sierra. We will spend Friday night in Oakhurst and have a group dinner. On Saturday morning, we will drive over Tioga Pass and have lunch at the Whoa Nellie Deli.
After lunch, we will drive north on 395, take Monitor pass to Hwy 4, and then drive west on 4 to the Bear Valley Lodge.
Beginning on July 10, that code will reduce the $155 rate by 15%.

Everyone loves a parade. Christmas comes once a year, and if you are in the holiday spirit after the Holiday Party, you can BE A PART OF the parade. The El Segundo 54th Annual Holiday Parade takes placeon Sunday, December 10th. This year's theme is TBD, but this IS the 100th anniversary of the founding of El Segundoso I would expect that is going to be somehow part of the theme. Line-up is from 12:00 Noon - 12:15 PM. The parade begins at 1:00 P.M.
El Segundo is a small town located in the South Bay. We hold a small town parade here. The Boy Scouts (cordless drill team), Girl Scouts, Pop Warner Football and Cheerleaders, baton twirlers, Little League, horse teams, Shriners, preschools, barber shop quartets, junior high and high school bands, along with various businesses have participated in the past and are all expected back this year. The chamber of commerce claims that 5000 people attend this parade each year.
Even though this is a driving club, this will be the shortest and SLOWEST run that you will ever participate in. Following the parade, we will meet at a restaurant to recap the harrowing experiences that we had at top speeds of seven miles per hour driving down the middle of the yellow line.
Our line up position is TBD.
Here are the run directions:
1) Zero out your odometers and line up on Imperial Avenue
Here are the rules for entries into the parade:
2) All designs and entries should be suitable for family viewing.
3) Please do NOT use a representative in a Santa costume. Santa ALWAYS rides on the Chevron Fire Truck at the end of the parade. We would not want children to be confused by seeing more than one Santa.
4) Commercial advertising is prohibited, but two banners or signs (maximum size 6’ X 2’) may be placed on two sides of the entry to acknowledge sponsoring companies/organizations.
5) Candy or other items may NOT be thrown from a car/van/float, etc. If items are to be distributed, then you may have members of your group (read that as “passenger”) walk along side the crowd at the curb and hand them out. (This rule is pretty much ignored, though).
PARADE PREP: The now defunct Imperial Avenue School parking lot where me met in the past to decorate our cars is UNAVAILABLE. This area is now fenced off for construction. We will prep for the parade at the line-up location.
PARADE LINE-UP: Here is a link to a map of the area where we will cue up for the parade:
