This run has been advertised on a few forums and I thought I'd highlight it here too since we have quite a growing Scottish contingent.

I'm attending as is @mikeswagon ......more the merrier! Lets get these prestine MINIs manky with a thrash up to the slopes :) :)




Names are sought for a run on SATURDAY 19 March 2016...(about 10am leave...)

Plan would be 'as usual' meet at shepherds rest, (Straik Road, Westhill, Aberdeen). Then take a leisurely jaunt up to snow land... Lecht ski centre or there abouts...

THERE is NO REQUIREMENT TO BE IN A MINI OR BINI......

It will be a charity event with money going to*

Mountain rescue Team in Braemar - for rescuing those in need in recent local floods..
Other half*
To brain tumour research.

spread the word.*As far as I am concerned only takes two cars to have an event.......

Hi Donna sorry for my late reply ,what all happening with this meet Donna is there loads of cars meeting at same location and do you pay an entry fee that goes for the charity?
At present I'm going day by day as so busy at work that is good in the current climate in the NE corner, what time you planning to head back?.
I really need to free up some time for a meet as I have not even organised our annual Detailing meet at mine place yet and feeling guilty

Hey Derek, not too sure what the actual schedule is. Meeting at the Shepherds rest at Westhill at 10am - so I plan heading off from mine around 0915. Mike is tagging on from Alford. Not sure what time we'll get finished or how the money is being collected. Under the impression it's a donation thing.
I'm looking forward to it as I've not been on one yet. I've posted a link to the FB page ... think a lot of classics are showing an interest too.
I'm planning on giving the car a wash this afternoon when I get home as I'm going out tomorrow night. Might try and wangle a shout of the boxster tomorrow so it'll stay clean(ish)!!
Hope you can make it, would be great to put names to faces!

Yay!


I hadn't planned on taking food with us, surely we'll stop somewhere for lunch - probably at the Lecht?


I'll let Brian know there's another F56 coming ..... we've been told by the classics to stay at the back :) :) sure there'll be plenty banter about it.


See you tomorrow at Westhill if I don't see you enroute to there......
