Should be fun. I'll put it on my calendar and cross my fingers.

I'll be there. I made my KOA reservations last fall. Will be sending in my registration tomorrow. Looking forward to it.

One of my biggest regrets is selling my minis years ago. Learned to drive on my mom`s mini 850 and then much later owned a couple of Coopers. Wish I could join you guys.

And I just made a hotel reservation. We are thrashing (yet again) to get our Mini done in time to go.

Tim, I'm looking forward to seeing it after reading along in the magazine. Looks like it will tend to be a wet weekend.

We ended up having a few too many problems and I need to stay home this weekend.

It was a great time. There was about 70 Minis at the event. Not many people actually drove their Minis to/from the event. After doing the 400+ miles there all in the rain and then the 400+ plus miles back also all in the rain, I can now see the wisdom of a tow dolly or trailer, especially consider the propensity of my car to hydroplane. I guess sticky R compound tires with minimal tread are not the ideal tires for hitting standing water at speed.
