I was there and have recently seen the mailed out results. That was the year I bought a rusty 850 to maintain a line of mini ownership. In January, I sold my very fast and nice Cooper S to make a down payment on my house. We went down without a mini. Someplace I have old paper grocery bags full of the photo packs. I would have no idea where to look. Steve (CTR)

The results have everyone's phone number and address I think.

i have the phone number for the guy who had that Moke at that MME. I talked to him after I bought the Moke. He had the engine balanced. I will send the info to you once I unpack.

How long has Jay Best been taking the Group photos ?

Might be worth asking Crabtree Photographic if they still have a negative.

The BTM in Dayton have a bunch of old photos that we were looking over last summer, but I know not if they go back that far.

I'm petty sure 66cooper was living in Kansas in 1979. Hard to find MOS people, as most of them got old and quit playing with Minis. I thought I was there and then it dawned on me that I got my first US Mini in 1980.

Does anyone happen to have any photos from the Mini Meet the year I was born?  Apparently our Moke or its owner was in attendance...
