Huntsville Area MINI Cooper Meetup
Calendar: Events Calendar
ke4sfq  
April 22nd 06:00 PM to 07:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Bridge Street Town Centre-Lower Parking Deck
Contact: Kevin Stephenson, kevin.stephenson+HCS@gmail.com

A few of us in North Alabama wanted to get together and see each other face to face before heading to MOTD next week. If you have a MINI in the area, let’s meet and check out each other’s cars. Everyone welcome who has a MINI whether you are Dragon bound or not. We are going to meet at the lower level of the Bridge Street Lower Parking Deck at 6:00 pm, Friday April 22nd. Afterwards we can get a bite to eat at Red Robin located there at the mall if anyone is interested.

Feel free to email me any questions. Maybe we can do this every so often if people are interested.

Just look for the “War Eagle” tagged MINI near the side entrance of the lower deck.

Very cool! Thank you for the post!

There was a very active group of minis in Huntsville at one point called the Rocket City Minis. You can still find remnants of the club on www.magicmini.com.

I'll see if I can't come out and check out the group.

There's only one original Mini in our area that I know of. Let hope he see this and comes out to play.

That would be very cool, I've only had mine about a month and would love to see a big turnout. Kinda late notice but let's hope for the best.

That's great if you can come! I've had mine a few years and the Rocket City Minis had quit gathering by that time. I would love for the group to be active again. I talk to Kerry (magicmini), he moved to Birmingham a while back. Said he would come up for this but has to work today.

I met Steve at an autocross last year and he showed me the ropes. Maybe he will see this and be able to come.

I found out Steve is out of commission for a bit. But hopefully we'll continue to have meets and he'll make it out to one. And you guys can come out to an autocross and see him in motion. He drives the wheels off of that thing--both sets.

Hey Kevin, Say hi to Kerry. I have not seen him in a long time. He is another fast Cooper Guy. I might not get out. I am taking it slow for a few days until My doctor figures everything out. No big deal. I will be kicking it hard very soon.

That's right, I forget Kerry used to autocross pretty regularly too. Glad you're taking it easy for a bit. I'm sure you'll be out here playing again in no time.

Oh, I definitely will. It's just a matter of time.

The thread/event title here will have a little when I've posted the pictures.

Awesome shots! I ran into two minis today and they both mentioned how much they loved their minis, so I gave them a HCS slip to get them on here.

The autocross actually ran later than normal and finished at 4pm. All the events start so early on a weekend. If you're not up and moving by 8-9am, you'll be missing stuff, lol.

I didn't have any information on the Home Depot show, so I didn't bother with it. I heard of a lot of people going to it, and some people mentioned seeing it, but I wasn't going to risk going out to it when there were other events I knew were going on for sure.

Have fun at the Dragon, and I'm sure I'll see you around when you get back. We'll have to get together sometime and I'll show you what that camera of yours can really do.
