February 2019 President’s Message

Connect: to join together so as to provide access and communication; bring together or into contact so that a link is established. A primary purpose of the Bluebonnet Miata Club is to help Miata enthusiasts connect to others with the same interests: owning the best sports cars, driving on great roads, sharing and learning, and enhancing, repairing or buying another one!

This initial connection brings us together and enables other connections: gearheads, bunco players, motorcyclists, quilters, road trippers and travel junkies, parts pickers, oenophiles, foodies, and the list goes on.

Opportunity for connection happens at monthly meetings, regular runs, Lunar Zoomer dinners, road trips, and regional events such as the Texas Miata Round-up in September. The website, newsletter, social media, and the Yahoo Group emails further support these connections.

A 2011 study published by AAS.org found that strong social connection leads to a 50% increased chance of longevity, strengthens our immune system, and helps us recover from disease faster.

Want more connection? Come to the meetings, join the group for dinner, participate in runs and extended road trips with others. The coming month presents several opportunities to connect; check out the website calendar for more information. Join in and connect!
