Events

How do I find out about events?


Upcoming events are displayed on our Events Page. Our Facebook page and P2P Group are the best resources for last minute information on upcoming events. A few weeks before an event, we also mail a postcard reminder. Once you join, you'll be automatically added to the mailing list. The entire Peak to Peak Miata Club Calendar is available. You can easily add our calendar to your personal calendar. Search the web or your calendar app for details on how to add an imap calendar.




How do I participate in an event?


For events that don't require an RSVP, just show up. We welcome non-members who are interested in the club. A Miata is not required! Many events do require an RSVP. If so, the contact information is listed in the Event details. Event postcards are usually mailed a few weeks before each event. The postcards have contact info if an RSVP is required. Track days, while listed on the calendar, are reserved for members only. For more information, just Contact Us.




What are your drives like?


Driving events usually have a fun-to-drive route with an interesting destination. Our intention is to make events suitable for the driver, as well as the passenger. Most drives have 10-20 cars and 15-30 participants. In addition to local Front Range drives, overnight drives to the Western Slope, Four Corners, and Wyoming are always popular. Group drives are always structured to allow participants to proceed at their own pace, stopping to sight-see, shop or stretch legs as desired. There is ample opportunity at each event for discussion of Miata smiles, modification, maintenance. Lunch conversation centers around the Miata world, but there are enough friends, partners, and spouses around to make sure it's not "all Miata all the time." There are many interesting personalities and professions represented. You may have to draw us out, but we do have lives beyond our Miatas.




Can I suggest a drive?


You bet! We are always looking for intersting drives and destinations. We have members that are happy to assist with planning, or co-lead, drives. Drop us a line on the Contact Us page with as many details as you have and we'll get in touch! You can also join us for the "Plannual Meeting" early each year, where we devise the preliminary event schedule togather. The Plannual is listed on the Event Calendar.

General

What is the Peak to Peak Miata Club?


We have been organized since 1993 and currently have over 100 cars in our club. That's nearly 200 Miata nuts! We draw between 15 and 30 cars for each event. Our members cover the spectrum from singles with their first car to empty nesters with a weekend toy. There are cars from nearly every year. Some of us just like touring, while others seem to like working on their cars more than driving them!




Are you on Social Media?


Oh yeah. You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Our P2P Group is an active source of emails and discussions. We also have a lot of photos from past events on our SmugMug page.




How do I join the P2P Email Group?


The Peak to Peak Miata Club uses groups.io for an email announcement and discussion forum. Joining is free and easy.

1. SUBSCRIBE (easy option)

Email peaktopeakmiataclub+subscribe@groups.io and follow the email instructions that are returned to you in email within ~5 minutes. This will be the easiest way to join the new list.

2. BUILD AN ACCOUNT Point your browser to https://groups.io/g/peaktopeakmiataclub and join. You'll be presented with two joining options:

a) If you only want to send and receive messages, reply to the email to
confirm your email address and activate your membership.

b) If you want to use the resources and read messages on the website,
please click on the link that will be provided to confirm your email
address, set up a password, and choose a subscription option:

- Individual Messages: Member will receive each message in an
individual email.
- Full Featured Digest: Group up to 12 messages together as one
email instead of being sent individually (rich formatting).
- Plain Digest: Group up to 12 messages together as one email
instead of being sent individually (plain formatting).
- Daily Summary: Member will receive a daily summary, delivered in
the morning, of the group's messages from the previous day. 3. STUCK?? Reach the email list owners at: peaktopeakmiataclub+owner@groups.io A few helpful tips:

1. Subject line for emails on this list will start with [peaktopeakmiataclub]
2. Membership is wide open, anyone can join. However...
3. The first post must be approved so that we don't get a pickup truck worth
of spam. YOUR FIRST POST WILL BE DELAYED until one of the three moderators
approves it, which may take up to 24 hours FOR THE FIRST MESSAGE ONLY.
Once approved, post away fully unmoderated.
4. If your first posting is "is this working" expect an email from one of
the moderators saying you're approved, but don't expect that message to
go through. We'll end up with 300 "is this working" emails and nobody
wants to see those and the dozen "yes it's working" replies.




P2P Group FAQ


Q. How does one post to the new list?
A. Direct the email message to peaktopeakmiataclub@groups.io

Q. Will this list handle attachments and inline images?
A. Yes. When adding an inline image, use the message "add image" icon for more reliable results than cut/paste shotcuts.

Q. Do I need to join this mailing list to be part of the club?
A. Being on the list is not a requirement of being a member of the club, however lively discussion takes place and spontaneous drives are also announced on the list.

Q. Does groups.io cost the club anything?
A. The base level doesn't cost the club anything.

Q. Why not ditch mailing lists and just move to Facebook?
A. Not everyone is on Facebook, but everyone has an email address. The club does have a Facebook page, feel free to use it but know many are not on that forum.

A. Email p2p_help@openplayground.com and we'll assist.

Q. Will the club be making announcements via the groups.io list?
A. Yes!

Q. Why groups.io?

A. Feel free to read it: https://groups.io/static/privacy.

Q. Is this list moderated?
A. After the first post the list is not moderated. However, if someone starts spamming the list with spam and off topic material the moderators will take action. That was not an issue with the Yahoo list and don't anticipate it being an issue with groups.io either.
