Take Me Out To The

(Northwest Arkansas Naturals)

Ballgame !!

Our next Arkansas Miata Club event will be June 18th and 19th, a Saturday drive to Northwest Arkansas with a Saturday evening ballgame at the Arvest Field home of the Northwest Arkansas Naturals led by Debbie Wisdom and JR Mills ….

We will leave the Little Rock area Saturday morning, meeting at the Shell Station at the Morgan Maumelle Exit off 1-40 at 8:00am, and planning to depart by 8:30am. We will play trip poker, so bring $5 to play. Lunch will be in the Van Buren / Ft. Smith area at Big Jake’s Steakhouse (1702 Fayetteville Rd, Van Buren, AR 72956) at approximately 11:30am.  We will arrive at the Comfort Inn on Rieff Street (Rooms are $70 per night and a block of rooms have been reserved under the Arkansas Miata Club – mention when making your reservations) in Springdale (479-725-1777) in time to check in, freshen up, have a social time and head to the Arvest Ballpark in time for the 7:00pm game. We’ll plan to leave the hotel by 6:00pm.  Dinner will be the finest foods known to mankind:  Ballpark franks and cold beer.  Life just does not get much better than that !

If you have Arkansas Miata Club tees, please wear them to the ballpark; if you don’t have a club tShirt, we’ll have them available for sale ! We will be sitting as a group at the ballpark and will have special parking.  Game tickets are $10 which gets us the reserved seating plus a special parking pass.  We need to confirm tickets and seating by June 1.  We can have reserved seats behind 1st or 3rd base.

Sunday morning breakfast will be at the hotel. After breakfast, we’ll leave as a group for Bentonville, AR and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, which will be open Sunday from 10:00am until 6:00pm.  Departures are on your own depending upon your stay at Crystal Bridges.
