Our next Event!
The February club event will be the “Seven Mountain Tour”. This drive / rally will challenge your fear of mountains without gaining elevation or using up those valuable brake pads.
When: Sunday February 9th, starting from Tim Horton’s at the corner of Cedar Hill Rd. and Shelbourne St. at 1:00 o’clock.
What: The drive is approximately 50kms (if completed properly), as with all our drives there will be some surmountable twists and turns, ending up at a local Cidery for a tour, taste and awarding the winner their trophy.
How: Instructions will be given out at the start, no copilot necessary, only 7 questions to answer and all makes and models welcome, if the mini is unlicensed.
Some people say there isn’t much to do during rainy weekends, but, that hasn’t stopped Alan. Hedecided to build a custom matching trailer for his Moke. Great job Alan!I can’t wait to see it in person. I like how Alan paid attention to the details like how the shape of the trailer fenders match the Moke. Check out some of the build pictures below.
The MG club was gracious to include us again in their New Years Day rally and lunch event. A great way to celebrate the bringing in of the new year. We had 19 mini club members out with 10 Minis in attendance. The MG club had approximately 36 members show up with MGB’s, an MG TD, MGA, MG Y saloon, and several Jaguars to name a few. Mini’s representation included a couple classic Minis, a couple new Coopers, a couple new Mini Cooper S’s, a John Cooper Works GP, a Mini Paceman and a Mini Countryman. There were even a couple heavily modified Minis that resembled a Corvette and Land Rover. Everyone was impressed with Gord’s new Mini Countryman that sported 1.75 inch lowering springs and 19 inch JCW wheels giving it a nice riding stance. Below are some pictures from today’s event. The wide angle photo at cattle point was submitted by Erin Hartley. Thanks Erin! Also are some pictures of MG’s and Mini’s from Alan also.
Happy New Year!
