After skipping 2017, Miata Spring Break will, once
again, be held for the enjoyment of all Miataphiles!
Contact: Bob & Juli Davis
This will be a 3 day weekend event (Friday, May 4th, thru Sunday,
May 6th of 2018) and our base will again be the Embassy Suites in
Lompoc. These are 2 room suites and the hotel offers complimentary
beverage and snack reception as well as cooked-to-order breakfasts.
The lobby area is quite nice and they have a beautiful outdoor
atrium and pool area. Unless booked (and paid for) by another
group, we will have the use of the breakfast/meeting room areas for
our late evening trivia contests, Mexican Train, ukulele sessions,
and relaxing conversations.
I was only able to block 35 rooms and we'll have to wait until these
are reserved before I can try to obtain more.........so, if YOU want
to go, YOU should make your reservation SOON! The link is
If you prefer to call the hotel directly (805-735-8311), please
identify yourself as part of the "Miata Car Club" to get the group
rate of $154.00/night + 12.2% taxes. I'm sorry that the rate has
increased so much, but Embassy Suites wasn't willing to negotiate
very much. If you wish to stay at a less expensive hotel, there are
several within 5 minutes drive. If you make different arrangements,
but wish to join us for the group dinner on Saturday evening, please
let me know.
There are NUMEROUS things to do in the Lompoc area....create your
own winery tour, view the Lompoc valley flower fields, sightsee
(shop) in Solvang, Los Olivos, Santa Maria, or Santa Barbara, tour
the local mission, take your chances at Chumash Casino, or simply
lounge around the pool and visit with friends, old and new.
For those who wish to caravan to Lompoc on Friday, I will depart
from the Old Spaghetti Factory in Duarte (Buena Vista exit off of
I-210) at 9:30am. There is a gas station and a Carl's Jr. nearby
for restrooms, gas, etc. Hopefully not all the twisties have been
There are no specific plans for dinner, etc. for Friday evening, but
there are several nice restaurants in the Lompoc-Buellton area. We
will likely gather in the breakfast/meeting rooms later that evening
for lively conversations, etc.
For those who would like to go on a drive on Saturday, I will lead a
counter-clockwise route around Lompoc/Buellton, with a pit stop at
the Fess Parker Winery (many drivers chose to spend the balance of
their afternoon there last time) and returning to the
Lompoc/Buellton area for a late lunch on your own and a relaxing
afternoon by the pool. There will be a driver's meeting at 9:15am,
in the front parking lot, and we'll depart at 9:30 am.
I have, again, arranged for a group dinner on Saturday at AJ Spur's
in Buellton (350 E. Hwy 246) at 5:30pm. I am assuming that everyone
that's registered will attend, unless I receive an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
telling me differently. They will seat us in groups of 4 to 10 as
we arrive at the hostess station and our group will be concentrated
in 2 to 3 dining areas.Afterwards, we'll gather again in the
breakfast/meeting room area at the Embassy Suites for games, music,
There are no specific plans for Sunday, but we can discuss the
options on Saturday evening.
For this event, the ONLY thing that you HAVE to do is ENJOY
