Vivi, are you trying to register for the MidTNMinis.com site? Ask John what's up if that's the case - PM user id JohnMonk. I think he can help.

I also tend to the care & feeding of MdTNMINIs.com, so feel free to pester me for help anytime. You can e-mail me via the group's e-mail account (membership.midtnminis[at]gmail.com) or PM me here. Be sure to let me know what e-mail address you tried to register there.

We've suffered a rash of fake GMail registrations in the last month or two so it is often hard to discern real from the fake... Darn spammers.

Anyway - I'm Drew, aka "Drewmon". VP of Middle Tennessee MINIs and a faithful MINI fanatic. Live on the west side of NashVega$ and you'll see me driving it like I stole it between home & work in Brentwood most days of the week.

Glad we have a spot to lurk over here on NAM now, thanks for hooking it up!

Drew,
Thanks for the info. I'm slowly learning who is who in Nashville's MINI Club.

I'll be sure Vivi PMs you her email to ensure she can register (she's the one having trouble). I've been on the MidTNMinis.com for a while.

What color is your car? Where are you exactly in Brentwood? I'm typing this from my Brentwood restaurant now.... There is also NashvilleMiniStan, do you know him? He's in the Brentwood area.

I think I've witnessed her Clubman scooting around town (not too many out there yet).

I have an '04 MCS, Jet Black w/ Cordoba Beige interior and currently running five spoke convertible rims. Also notable that it is probably the only car in Nashville sporting an IMSA sticker on the hatch (along with a Dinan tag).

I work just up the street from your Moe's location in the 'Wood. There is an office building up on the hill behind Captain D's (just across from Target). That's where I lurk and attempt to earn my keep.

I believe I met Stan at the last drive I pulled together for MidTNMINIs (could be wrong - my head is currently filled with a cold and a tad wonky) .

Do you normally work out of your Moe's in Brentwood? If so I'll be sure to pester you the next time I roll through. We grab lunch there probably once a month or so.

Wooo hoo. My 90th post in four years here on NAM... Record day.

Not all the time, but I live at Hillsboro/Chickering intersection, so this is my closest store.

I rotate between my 4 soon to be 5 locations (Bwood, Cool Springs, Mboro, Spring Hill, and soon Belle Meade).

Yea, I saw that you were a NAM-hater. What's up with that? This place has been invaluable for me as a modder.

Karissa, thanks for joining us here. Hope you are on MidTNMinis.com as well.

I grew up about 20 minutes from you in McMinnville.

Howdy y'all- I'm now official- got MochaLatte this past Tuesday, so if you see a Hot Chocolate Clubbie with Silver roof/mirrors/pillars, a spoiler and roof racks- that's most likely me! Posted pix in my gallery- I've been having a blast driving her all over the place- Wow does she handle nicely. Those back roads I live on are so much fun to drive! So far, everyone except 2 MINI's have waved back- on HC Clubbie and I were jumping up and down in our seats as we passed eachother!
TTFN- Vivi

Congrats Vivi! I know how it was waiting for my mini to come! I got mine August 2nd of this year! It seemed like it took forever! There is a handful of minis here where I live so I have no one to wave back!

I think I will be going to the Mini Homecoming this weekend actually. So maybe I'll see some of you guys there!

Hi Karissa- Thanks- and I know what you mean about not waiving... When I first got Mocha, it seemed that everyone waved, now it seems that no one waves- I'll see you this weekend-

Lori, hello! Welcome.

Very cool!! We don't see many "real" Mini's here in Nashville. Would love to see a picture if you have any.

Of course, we are an inclusive bunch of folks. Just because you look different, doesn't mean we won't let you play with us (j/k)!

When you say you can't log into the other site, are you referring to the specific middle TN website? If so, we will get you some help.

Elguapo731 - Nashville

Does anyone know what's up with the Mini Club website. I signed up a week ago and haven't recieved an email back for confirmation into the forum. I'm wondering if there will be a Christmas Light Drive this year?

Hi- I am still having probs with the Nashville club site too- I can get on certain parts, but when I try to get onto the forums it tells me I'm not authorized...

Hey Drew... Wanna wave a magic wand over it?

Thanks- Vivi

ps- I'm seeing a LOT of new minis on the roads between Fairview/Franklin/Brentwood/Green Hills/Belle Meade these days!

Vivi,
Congrats on the car - you've had it now for what, 3 months? How is it?

Have you really posted 1175 times as of 12/18/08? Good lord woman, it must be quiet out there in the country!
