The girl and I might be able to stop by. We're gonna be on Martha's Vineyard Friday and Saturday for a 5K race. Perhaps on the way back we could stop by, I still have to map it out.

Nice work TBE

I lol'd at the "First 80 MINIs entered into a car show." Gotta love this community.

Anyway, I'll see if my better half wants to get up that early and head home or hang out Sunday on the Vineyard.

This event will go from 11 to 4 pm.

It's a great place - good parking for MINIs - there'll be cops blocking off a street just for MINI parking and car show..........

Beautiful lawn for a lawnkhana - basic silly obstacle course doing dumb Mini things - possible rc car races

major raffle items including a 2 year MINI lease for free and jumbo baskets of good stuff

Food and drinks - 50th Birthday Celebration for Mini/ MINI - come and have fun!

Call MINI of Fairfield County for further details - 203-347-4800. It seems they have a hard time updating their website and sending email blasts when I'm not working there any more.

I'll be heading to southern Jersey this weekend and wont be rolling through this year, I wish I was going to be in M.V. I was there last month, Chris... Just an FYI, I made it from woods hole to my drive way in Jersey City in 4hours flat... The trip up was a different story though...

Probably a better bet if you ask me..
It was a good time hanging with some mini peeps, but the vineyard wins by far...
