MINI Meet 09 Registration is open

Registration for Mini Meet East meets West 2009 is now open! The event will be in Winona, Minnesota starting the evening of June 29, and going through July 2, 2009. Go to: click the registration button, and follow the instructions from there.
Registration is being done on-line and you can pay on-line by credit card through PayPal (you do not have to join PayPal to do this) or you can pay by check through the mail if you are not comfortable with on-line payments. When you have filled out the registration form click on the PayPal symbol for credit card payment or on the mailbox symbol for payment by check. Either way, you will get a confirmation email listing your choices. If you choose to pay by check, payment details will come with your confirmation email.

We're planning a great event with a lot to do this year. Here are the plans:
Monday, June 29th is check-in starting at 1:00 PM at the Riverport Hotel. Mini vendors will be present all during the car show. That evening there will be a welcome reception in the hotel's ballroom. A great chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.
Tuesday, June 30th is the car show at St. Mary's University followed by the panoramic photo. Tuesday evening we'll be celebrating the Mini's 50th Birthday at the bandshell in the park in Winona with a live band, cake and soft drinks.
Wednesday, July 1 is Autocross and Funkhana day at Southeast Tech University. They have a great track for the Autocross and drivers should have a ball. With time constraints, we need to limit spaces in the Autocoss to 150 so be sure to sign up early. Since spaces are limited in the Autocross, we are making that event a la carte for meet registrants. The wacky hijinks of the Funkhana will be held nearby and should provide a great time for all. In between the two venues, there will be vendors setting up shop along with several planned tech sessions. Wednesday evening will be "Cruise Night" at the local drive-in.
The Rally will be held on Thursday, July 2, and with all the scenic river bluffs throughout the area, it will prove to be an unforgettable drive in the countryside on some great "Mini" roads. Thursday evening is the awards banquet featuring some great food, fascinating speakers and door prizes.
We're looking forward to a great time and hope all of you can come to the meet in Winona, Mini-sota!

For those of you interested in checking this out, but maybe not participating as much, we are in need of volunteers. Consider helping us out for this. Check out the dates and let me know.
