Good Day,

Well it has been an unusually dry October so far and the Victoria Minis Car Club 2012-2013 driving year is coming to a close on 31 October 2013.

Club Ball Caps – For those that have paid, but have yet to pick up their ball hats with the club logo on it should do so by contacting Mike Smith .

15 October VMCC Monthly Meeting – We had a great meeting with some interesting vehicles including Dylan’s Electric Mini and Ian’s updated Mini.  We had an International presence as Lammo, a Mini enthusiast from Germany attended the meeting and took several pictures.  We provided him a Cap and a Mug as a goodwill gesture on behalf of the Club.

Club Dues — A reminder that you can pay the 2012 – 2013 and/or next year’s(1 November 2013- 31 October 2014 dues ($30.00) anytime by contacting  MikeSmith by or by phone: 250-477-9650.

Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2 November 2013 R.S.V.P. — The Club’s Annual General Meeting will be taking place Saturday, 2 November 2013 at the Princess Mary Café 459 Head St, Victoria, BC V9A 5S1, Canada.  Dinner will start at 6 p.m. with the meeting scheduled to start at 7 p.m.  It will be a sit down service and you can order from the menu.  It caters to all and has items that are gluten-free and various items for those that have allergies as well.  You can order what you like as you are paying for what you want.
It would be great if I could get an idea of how many are attending; so please R.S.V.P. to me by 28 October 2013 at .
Thanks to Dana and Lloyd for suggesting the restaurant.

President Update

hogan tHi there,
Well, we have had a great summer and an interesting fall.  Our members attended many events including local and long-distant events.  At several events, our members were awarded Top – Three honours in their respective Classes.  At the English Car Affair in the Park hosted by the Old English Car Club, we overwhelmed our competition to retain the “The Italian Job” trophy.  It was a great event and the weather was made to order.  More fun to come.

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 at 7 pm-ish – Mike Smith will be hosting the meeting. 

Here is the address and telephone of Mike and Deb Smith’s home:

1849 Francisco Terrace
Victoria V8N 4W2
Tel: 250-477-9650 for directions if you cannot find it.


Looking forward to seeing all of you as this is a great opportunity to pick up the Club ball cap.  This will be the last meeting of our current year as the new year starts on 1 November 2013.  We will be holding an Annual General Meeting (AGM) soon.  Don’t forget to be prepared to pay dues for 2013-2014 before the AGM in order to be able to vote.  The fees will remain as they were for 2012-2013.  Mike Smith will gladly collect your membership dues.  Christmas is coming and we will be holding a Christmas Party at a date and location to be given at a later date.
Hope to see many of you there.
