2012 is shaping up to be a very busy MINI Motoring year! MINI USA recently confirmed that they will be organizing another MINI Takes The States slated for sometime in the Summer. AMVIV (A MINI Vacation in VEGAS) is scheduled for June 14th through the 17th. The Dynamic MINI Collective from Arizona may have something planned for the fall and the annual MINIs in the Mountains takes place in Colorado August 2nd through the 5th. We will definitely be attending at least one of those events this year and we would like to have some more of you MINI motorers experience one of these HUGE MINI gatherings for yourselves! Once MINI USA finalizes the dates (they promised more details coming this month) we’ll post more schedules and start figuring out what we are going to do. It’s the start of the year and still plenty of time for you to request time off If you have another event you are attending and want to have some more folks caravan with you, post in the comments.
In the meantime, Sunday January 15th looks like a good day for a local meet-up and drive. We’ve had a lot of requests for a day trip to White Sands over the last few months and this seems like a good time to head on up. Weather around this time of year is usually mild and clear. Temps average in the upper 50’s to low 60’s making for a very comfortable day out in the sands! As always, the drive is open to all MINI and Classic Mini owners.
We’ll work on putting together routes and schedules over the next couple of weeks and will post some more details as we get closer to the 15th!
