Hello MINIpalooza Fans!
This year's event will be held in and around the beautiful mountain cities of Blowing Rock and Boone, NC. MINIpalooza 2016 will be a 3-day event from September 9th to the 11th. Being in the mountains this year means we have lots of twisty roads to tackle. There are some great roads in this area. Runs are being setup for Saturday and Sunday morning so you can get your motoring fix! Runs will be available for a variety of driving styles and interests.
For Friday evening we are having a catered dinner event (Time TBD) sponsored by with Flow MINI of Winston-Salem at the Copper Barrel Distillery in downtown Wilkesboro (508 Main St.). We will be posting details on the event's Facebook page and clubs webpage.
On Saturday we are scheduling runs for both morning and afternoon. Most of the runs will start and stop at the host hotel with a break in between so participants can grab some lunch. Several different types of runs are being planned, from visits to local sites/attractions to some runs that will let you take in the beautiful scenery to some pavement shredding twisty blasting runs. Saturday evening we will have a group dinner event (time TBD) at the Brushy Mountain Smokehouse & Creamery in Wilkesboro (201 Wilkesboro Blvd, North Wilkesboro).
On Sunday morning we will have a group photo (location TBD) and then one final run for anyone who has the time and wants to get in a few final twisties.
