Mini Mania is excited to announce that we are a platinum sponsor of Mini Meet West 2013! Mini Meet West is an annual gathering of fans of the classic Mini manufactured from 1959 to 2000 (including variants such as Mini-based Wolseley / Rileys, Innocenti / AUTHI, etc.) and the modern BMW MINI that is currently in production.
This year, Mini Meet West is hosted by the Oregon Mini Society and the venue is in Bend, OR located on the scenic Deschutes River in central Oregon. The dates are June 18th-20th, 2013 although many participants will want to come early and / or stay an extra day or more to enjoy the many recreational opportunities available in the area. There is even a Mini Cooper track day planned by an Oregon Mini Society Member. Mini Meet West events include a car show (“Shine & Show”), autocross, funkhana, tour / rallye and an awards banquet. It is anticipated that a number of Mini / MINI related vendors will attend Mini Meet. The host hotel and central headquarters for Mini Meet West 2013 is the Riverhouse Resort and Conference Center.

* The Shine & Show is for every car that comes to Mini Meet West. It's not a Concours for every-bolt-correct cars, but rather a People's Choice vote for cars in each of the classes. A car that's shown In-Progress will be just as interesting to Mini folks as a daily driver or a just-completed new paint job. This is also a chance for everyone to see all the cars that have come to the event, meet all the fellow attendees, kick tires, tell stories, laugh at funny license plates, and then be ready for the Group Photo, which will be immediately after the Shine & Show. It's free and open to all, so don't miss it.
