Event Leaders -  David & Janice Sell, Walter Cramer

It's time again for the summer version of LVMOC's annual New Year's Day Polar Bear Drive.  For the UN-Polar Bear Drive, our hardy troopers gather, in mid-summer, with their winter gear stored in their trunks (inluding ski hats, mitts, jackets, wool scarves, shovels, etc.) and then pose in that gear while baking under the hot sun for a photo shoot 🤪 .  This is followed by the quick shedding of gear and a drive that includes curves and cones... Ice Cream Cones, that is (after all, we must involve something icy!).

This will be a PICNIC LUNCH drive, (members requested more of these at our General Membership Meeting, on May 21, 2022).  Our lunch / ice cream stop will be at Heisler's Cloverleaf Dairy, near Tamaqua, for treats that should be appropriate for what will hopefully be a warm, sunny day.  We suggest that you bring a picnic lunch, or, if you wish, Heisler's has burgers, hot dogs, barbeque, pierogies, etc.  There is a covered pavilion with tables and benches, or you might want to bring camping / folding chairs.

After visiting Heisler's, we will follow more fun roads to the drive's end, back in Fogelsville near the intersection of Main St (Old U.S. 22) and PA-100. 

This event will follow the current Pennsylvania rules for COVID-19 safety.  To avoid common handling of materials (remember, COVID is still hanging around...), we will email the directions to participants, for home printing, and we will eliminate the usual paper sign-in sheet.  Since the sign-in confirms your agreement with LVMOC’s standard Waiver and Release, we will now consider your post to this event thread, indicating that you intend to participate, to be your “electronic” signature, indicating your agreement with said Waiver and Release (copy available on request).

There will be two groups of cars on this drive... Walter has offered to lead half the cars.  This is great, since smaller groups generally require less time to pass thru intersections, and there's less regrouping.

We will use FRS radios for communications.  Be sure to arrive at the departure point with a full gas tank and an empty bladder 😏Don't forget your winter gear!!

I am still deciding on PPF and front splitters and such, and I need a new infotainment screen (under warranty of course) from Mazda. The top left corner is just like, coming apart. Possibly a new soft top too.  Its getting frayed and creased in two areas, not a great time for so many things to go wrong with a car that I haven't even had 2 years (it will be 2 years I've had it on August 20th).

Dissapointed with all of this happening at once and wish I had a second MX5 to put myself on the wait list for this but at the moment, I'm also trying to figure out what to do with the Toyota Prime
