I'm a total newbie here. In fact, I just ordered my MINI a few days ago. I live in Irvine, so assuming my car shows up by then, I should be good to go (although I probably can only make the weekend and maybe evening events due to my work schedule).

I looked on the MMW site, and was wondering exactly what goes on. For example, how does the night run and evening drive work? Do we all drive together in a massive line around OC showing off our cars? What is a poker run? Is it a wild poker game, or some kind of drive?

Thanks - and sorry if these seem like ridiculous questions.

Captdf -- You are not alone! I am supposed to be getting my Mini this weekend [fingers crossed!] and I'm already racking up the events I want to go to! I was thinking the same things, as I have never been to a rally/event before and we will not be able to stay all weekend, probably only come up for Saturday.

Either way, maybe we'll see ya there! Congrats on your order!

well I hope you all show up... it will be a blast...

@Capdtf- the poker run consist of you driving from point to point with a navigator and when you stop at the points you pick up a card,.... at the end of the run, the team/driver with the best hand wins the prize (whatever that may be)

and I think the evening drive is just that... driving around the OC in a caravan showing off our cars.... as a driver of a classic mini... it's VERY cool to see 10+ of these little cars traveling in a pack... let alone 30-300

Hello Had a great time,

Does anyone know who was awarded for the various categories at the car show. My son took pictures of his "winners" and really wants to know how he did. I belive they were announced at the banquet.

Thanks- very glad our car showed up in time to be a part of this event.
