  1. For those who may not have already subscribed to the MINI USA link... - Postponed to Summer 2021 - MINI USA says they plan to use the same routing planned for 2020 [yay for us on the East Coast!] - Exact dates TBD
  2. Maggie does look great! Nice to see a hybrid joining. I look forward to hearing your longer-term impressions - I want my next car to be a hybrid or completely electric. Likely to still be several years away, but...
  3. This looks fun - I like the idea of the past/modern comparison. Will have to RSVP tentative, though; I have to fly to Atlanta that day for a work trip. Maybe I can catch the first few hours before heading to the airport...
  4. Crossing my fingers the timing and routing works out. I like catching the start of MTTS, but that's not an option this year due to work. *Maybe* I can catch the last few days!!
  5. I'm also arriving just in time for the driver's meeting, but will continue through BBQ, and can't miss those fantastic cupcakes at Sweets!
  6. ( Videos are moving photography, right?) Mark you calendar for Nov 22... There are some teaser videos at these links. https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/videos/this-is-how-mini-jcw-turbo-engines-are-built/60865?an=culture https://www.smithsonianchannel.com/videos/why-mini-jcw-cars-are-so-similar-to-go-karts/60847?an=culture
  7. Nice turnout and great to see everyone! I think we all enjoyed the location. @wyretrip Sorry I took off too early before you could see the mod! Next time... I missed a few of the MINIs in attendance by not going outside earlier to take photos
  8. After seeing and hearing about the simple install by @Coopah, I had to get one of these Cravenspeed auto shift knobs: Totally agree about the great feel and sitting at a perfect height relative to the center arm rest!
  9. The private dining room is set aside for us under “DC Minis” There’s some sort of beer tasting event going on tonight, so no guarantee of a big enough table in the main dining area.

  12. I really enjoyed this run last year - especially the food at the end! [ Unfortunately, I can't make it this year due a packed travel schedule in Aug... ]
  13. That's a great improvement over the stock auto "shifter." Thanks for posting this, as I've been wondering if the install was as easy as the description made it seem. When I saw this on Cravenspeed's email a little while back I didn't quite understand how it's getting around the usual button press needed to move the selector. Do you just lift/push up the knob and move it to the selection you want?
  14. Hey Corey, no problem! The place is certainly spread out. I did run into Rey & Co, too, as they were checking out their next SUV Certainly a less diverse set of vehicles this year. Crowd seemed a bit smaller, too. Nevertheless, entertaining to walk around and see some of the new stuff.
