Itinerary for Sunday March 18th, 2012

As always, this Rally is open to all MINI and Classic Mini Cooper owners!


El Paso Meet:

Let’s start meeting up at about 9:00 am at the Starbucks on the West Side on North Dessert Blvd.  It’s in the parking lot of the Albertsons on Redd and the Gateway. The address is: 5650 N. Desert Blvd EP TX 79912


Depart by 10:00 AM

We’ll have a about a half hour drive to Las Cruces Via I-10. We’ll meet the rest of the group at the Starbucks on S. Valley Dr.  The address is 1500 S Valley Dr., LC NM 88005


Directions from EP To LC Starbucks:

I-10 West for about 30 minutes

EXIT 140, and prepare to make a right on Avenida de Mesilla (28)

Stay on Avenida de Mesilla 28 until you reach Valley Drive. Make Right on Valley.

The Starbucks entrance is near the intersection of Hickory and Valley


Depart for Hatch by 11:30

From Las Cruces, we’ll take a scenic back road up to Hatch.  (about 45 minutes to an hour) The back road is narrow, has dips, and sometimes farm equipment.  There’s also a Border Patrol Check Point in the middle of nowhere so we urge everyone to watch your speed and watch for road hazards.


When we arrive in Hatch, there should be plenty of parking in the lot in front of and around the side of Sparky’s. It’s a pretty popular destination on Sunday’s, so everyone’s patience will be appreciated!
