MINI MS Cruise

Are any other MINI owners signed up for the MS Cruise June 24th? I've booked a spot and would love to line up with any other MINI's going along for the ride. It's for a great cause and I'm looking forward to my first event!

Yes! I will be going for sure! I've heard that some others might be joining too (Karl are you in?)! I'll update the event details when I get home from work (to include the cruise map and details etc.)

It sure would be great to get some more out!

Yes! Briget, have you officially formed the "team" for the cruise? I have not signed up yet, waiting for the team to form...

Dennis, that nightfire red is real pretty...I look forward to seeing it live...

Thanks Karl! Bubbles is looking forward to running with his new friends!

I signed up with MS Society and told them I'm with MINI Club.

Hey Bridget; any idea how many MINIs are attending this cruise this weekend? How went the fundraising? I saw that you were our team captain, did we come up with a great name yet?

Ack! I have to admit that I have really dropped the ball on this one :(
Between the track and some family issues I've had no time to stay on top of this. I will be attending and donating $250 towards the cruise (expensive mistake my lack of fundraising! lol). We can change to any team name at the event (or so I was told) so if you guys are coming out we can discuss it then. See you Sunday?

B: Fundraising neglect! You'll get a great tax receipt!

R: Maybe I'll post a pic of the sib and keep on the dash?

Anyone hear from Karl?

Team name? mmmm....

"MINI cars...Big Hearts"?

Yah...it's cheesy...but it's also Friday and it's all I can come up with!

No, I haven't heard from Karl...but now you have!

That sounds like as good a "team name" as any.

I'll just look over the top of my glasses at Briget.

I had Friday off work, and managed to convince a bunch of people into sponsoring BUCKY on the Cruise. Even MINI Winnipeg...

Dennis, we should probably keep "Rex" between our two cars at all times...I'm not sure if the colour combination of Chili Red and Nightfire Red will look very well together, but I could be proven wrong on that count...

I'll be happy if we manage NOT to encounter weather like what hit Elie yesterday...

Very nice .

Only problem is, your classy car makes "Bucky" look kind of garish by comparison...

Thanks for sharing!

Garish? How can such a car ever look garish?
Tomorrow I drop Bubbles off to get the Retro Gas Cap and Driving lights installed...finally!

Hahaha..then it'll be garish? Or is it garnish? hahaha...looking for the dictionary?

If you didn't have such good taste in things to add to your ride, that could be "garishly garnished" .

Those mods will make "Bubbles" one of the classiest MINIs in town...and a standard for the rest of us to try to meet .

Hi Dennis, do you have any objection to me posting that photo on the MMMC web site?

Of more importance, do you have a new photo of your car with the new goodies to share?
