Those aren't crickets, they're Pacific Tree Frogs! Noisy little guys! A lot of people think they're crickets.

I see a lot of MINIs in Western Washington. The two local clubs have their own websites, though I see some familiar names on this forum.

http://www.psmini.org/

and

http://www.ssmini.org/

I'm a member of both of these.

Or, if you're in Portland,

http://www.pdxmini.org/

It's the same way here as it is with the 6speedonline forum and teamspeed forum. One forum seems to dominate while the others are pretty dead....

I've thought this since I got the car, I came from vwvortex and the pnw thread is super busy, busiest in the US. And this is just dead. Wish there was more chatter

Yeah, you definitely get more responses from the general forums than the local threads on this board.

I hang out on PSMini a fair amount, but it definitely seems to cater to a Boomer/sr. citizen crowd (I'm 30).

I was just discussing this with my friend, who is also a fellow MINI owner, about how there aren't a lot of meetups or hangouts for PNW MINI owners (that I know of) outside of PSMINI's occasional parades or organized events.

We should organize something a little more fun for the younger crowd- a meetup or something at one of the many Seattle-area breweries or something fun like that. Summer and sunshine are upon us...

I would love this! I am new to the forum and have been looking for people to meet and go on drives with in the Seattle area. Now that summer is here, I cant think of a better time! Plus I would like to see some other cars!

Hello,


I have noticed the same thing. I am getting my first Mini delivered this November. I'm located on Whidbey Island at the North end just outside Oak Harbor. It would be great to get a Coffee and Mini thing going on the weekends.

Check out PS MINI.

http://www.psmini.org/

They have a lot of members around the North Puget Sound, You might even get an impromptu meet up going, by posting to their forum.
