Jim: At the New England Mini Owners (NEMO) meeting today there was a show of hands, but unfortunately it seems nobody from the club is planning to attend the Mini East Meets West event.

I think it conflicts with a couple of other shows, and is just too far for most of folk to travel. But we discussed using the British by the Sea show on 2nd June as an alternative, as that one-day show is a bit more local.

So we’re trying to get all the classic minis that anyone knows of in the New England area to attend this event, as mini is the featured marque due to the 60th anniversary year.

It’s still a few hours drive for those in the north eastern states, but much more accessible than Colorado.

Jim, there was some suggestion that if enough people were interested, the New England Mini Owners club might sponsor a car transporter to make the return trip from New England to Colorado, allowing owners/drivers to fly there instead. I don’t know if it will actually happen, but it’s up for discussion at the annual general meeting on March 31st. If you are interested, contact details are at www.nemomini.org

Hello,

I’m looking for someone to trailer my Classic 1966 Mini to the East meets West Show this summer.
I need the to get the Mini from Rochester NY to Snowmass and back ! Preferably in an enclosed trailer.

Do we have any recommendations?

Tin Box, as posted in the thread for MMW dates, my starting point was Ken's (VMC) good compilation of MME/MMW and the East Meets West Meets, as well as information I had saved as a participant in some of the events. There are no month/day dates and some of the locations are not correct. I helped a little bit when he put the original list together, so some of the errors could be mine. I'm trying to get more accurate information this time around.

Yes, Denver '89 was brutal, 122deg at the track thermometer....had my windshield in my sedan spontaneously crack while the car was parked....

The full list of mini meets in north America can be found here - //www.vancouverminiclub.ca/minimeetswest/unite.html

And the pic of my moke is from the LA meet in '90 (blue / green one, the purple is Teri S's) great drive through the redwoods from Vancouver....

Yes. Three MMN and three in the Mini 50-series. I have dates for them. I also have a listing of all the International Mini Meets, but only a few dates. There have been many other big events around the world and I'd be happy to add any of the dates. Just trying to get those closest to home sorted out first.

Wasn't there some major Canadian Mini Meets as well?  As in Mini Meet North?
