    A Weekend at Ocean Shores WA with Club Miata Northwest

    Organizer: Alex Countouriotis

    Where: Shilo Inn Suites Hotel, Ocean Shores, WA

    When: March 16-18, 2018  Meet at 09:00 on the 16th.  Driver's meeting at 09:30 and depart at 10:00.

    Meet at: The NW corner of the Kelso Safeway parking lot.  411 Three Rivers Dr., Kelso, WA 98626.  Located in Three River Mall west of I-5 at exit 39 (WA 4).  This Safeway has a Starbucks and a fuel station, so we would ask that everyone fill up here if they need fluids.

    Please contact Jack activities@mthoodmiata.org for questions after registration.

    Club Miata Northwest is going to the beach, and Alex got Mt Hood Miata invited along.  Here's the link to the page on their website.

    Club Miata NW

    Run details: Alex will lead the run along Westside highway, SR506, Pe Ell-McDonald Road, and SR6 to Raymond.  We will need someone to sweep for this first leg to Raymond.  Bring radios if you have them.

    We plan to stop in Raymond for lunch, possibly at Liang's Asian Cuisine (one of only two 5-star-rated restaurants on Yelp in Raymond) a little before noon.  Depending on the number of registered attendees, we may or may not make reservations at Liang's.  Even though Liang's is highly rated, some may not be keen on Chinese and will want to seek out other food venues.  Depending on the collective wishes of the group, we will take about an hour to eat lunch and shoot for a 13:00 departure.

    The rest of the trip to Ocean Shores will be more flexible.  We will take Highway 101 through Aberdeen to Hoquiam.  There we will switch to SR109 and then to SR115 to complete our trip to the host hotel, Shilo Inn.  This final leg will be more flexible because some may want to stop in Aberdeen and/or Hoquiam to do some sightseeing.  People can peel off at any time during this final leg from Raymond to Ocean Shores.  For this reason, we will not use a sweeper for the last leg.

    Note that the route is subject to change, pending a pre-run closer to the time of the event.

    Accommodations update 2/14/18:  There are 3 King rooms and 8 2-Queen room reaming in MHMC’s block of rooms.  You must register with the hotel by 3/2/18 to get the prices listed below.

    Accommodations:  Shilo Inn, Ocean Shores -707 Ocean Shores Blvd NW, Ocean Shores, WA 98569

    shiloinns.com

    (360) 289-4600

    We will get the same negotiated rate that CMNW has on their event page: $109/night for first and second floors, and $119/night for third and fourth.  We need to give the hotel a ballpark headcount as soon as we are able to do so.  So if you are planning to go, please register soon.  When you call the hotel to book, ask for Jody and to let her know that you are with Mt. Hood Miata Club.  Please read additional details concerning the hotel on the Club Miata Northwest event page.


    RSVPs are a must for ALL events.
    Please register here on the event page - we need a car count and a person count if we stop for a meal.
