MINI Gathering in SIOUX FALLS~!!!!

HELLO FELLOW MINI OWNERS!

I would like to get as large a group as possible together in the next month or so on a friday night. We would meet at SONIC on the west side by the old SPORTMANS WAREHOUSE. Hang there for a while, then once done leave as a group down 41st to minn, up minn to 14th, 14th over to Phillips, Cruise Down Phillips ave thru the downtown area and then to the Falls, and disburse from there. Anyone that would be interested please email me, having a group of MINI's and CLUBMAN's cruising through SIOUX FALLS would be a blast. Pass the word and give my email to anyone you know that has a MINI.....look forward to hearing from you...when i get a few people ill send an email out with a couple of dates to choose from so we can get a general consensus.....

thanks

I think this would be a great idea. What time and date were you thinking of. I think the location is pretty good, too. A visible spot on a busy street.

How about the 21st or 28th? That should give enough time to spread the word. I am impatient though, so I would lean towards the 21st or 22nd.
BTW what flavor of MINI do you have?

Seen you...

maybe. The description sounds familiar. I've only seen one other CR Cooper around, other than ours, so it may have been you. Are you going to the MT side our WY side of Yellowstone?

We don't have plates on the red one yet, or the blue one. The red one has black trim, the blue one has a silver roof, (her's and his in that order). There is another red one with the plate 'Harriet', but that is too many letters. It is something like that though. And there are a couple of yellow ones out there and a gray one.

I don't know if Maxwizz is back. Any Saturday will work well. Most Friday nights are good, too.

We should start a tally to see who can and cannot make it. IF this is going to be the projected date. Maybe we can throw the subject around to the Rural Nebraska Club also. Just trying to produce ideas....

I'm excited. It is Sidewalk Arts downtown and I work it most of the afternoon. If we do it later I can. A lot of the downtown streets are closed for it. Also the German Fest is by the Falls, we could end there and have some German food! Since the MINIs are made in Germany now. I do know some people on the commitee, maybe if I could say we have a lot coming down we could have a designated parking area??? Just throwing it out there! Let me know what you all think!

Time

I don't remember what time the Arts Festival ends, but how much time do you need when it ends?

Time

5 would be ok. Sonic is right there, so dinner is taken care of for the small one. Is Phillips going to be closed for the arts thing, or will it be open?

5 is ok on Sept 12, this Saturday! Phillips doesn't close in the downtown area, just by the falls. So you want to meet at the Sonic by the old Sportsman's Warehouse?
Anyone that wants to meet us, reply to this post and we can see how many cars we have!

I work a booth for the museum from opening until 11. I will look for your MINI!
We should maybe do a drive some other time. We are the only two interested. Plus it is a very busy day. I will try to get a big drive next year to go along with the german fest! But until then Let's try for another day in October to get more people to Join! How about October 16th or 17th?
