Mini Meet East. Who's going?

Post  Red Riley on Mon Apr 11, 2011 6:05 pm

How about setting up an Elf/Hornet Register USA meeting at Mini Meet East? I'm planning to be there with Kreacher.

I expect to be there. I have been to several British Car Shows at the Choo-Choo, it's a good place for MM East. I hope we can gather all Elf/Hornets we can.

Looks like I'll be in Chattanooga a couple of days early if anyone wants to get together before the Meet.

Any update on the people coming to this event? I hope all the Booted Mini's we can find are able get here. I have been tied up with another event for a few weeks but its time now to promote the MME as the 50th Elf/Hornet event.

Put the word out. I talked to a new Elf owner from the Dayton OH area that I saw at MG2011 and hopefully she will be there. Lets get all we can to be there.

Great, so that's Paul from Ohio, Jim from North Carolina, the 65 Hornet, and me and my Kreacher from SC. Anyone else? We'll need to have an impromptu "club stand."
I wish I had a EHF banner! I do have some "Elf Hornet 50 Years" decals though. Make sure you all hit me up for a couple.
I'll be at the Choo Choo starting on the 1st, so look me up when you get there!
Woohoo! Or I should say ChooChoo!

We are driving down in a convoy with Alex and Suzy, our neighbor, and us. Between us, we will have a pickup towing a trailer full of Mini parts and tires, a MINI Clubman towing a Anderson Cub (moke-like mini-based vehicle) on a dolly, and our MINI Clubman towing Walter the Hornet on a dolly. We will depart early on the 4th and will check into the Choo-Choo that afternoon if all goes well. That evening we will probably be on the lookout for somewhere to go to watch some fireworks so Alex and Suzy can celebrate the anniversary of getting rid of the pesky colonials. Tuesday we will be seeking some sort of touristy stuff to do....

See you all there.

Brian, I guess most of the Mini group will be in Hotel 3 close to Grand Central. I would suggest that we try to gather the Booted Mini's on the Hotel 2 side of the lot for our "booth". You will be there well before I get there so you decide the best place. I drove my Elf to Chattanooga last fall for their annual British Car Show. I will be there no sooner that late on the 5th. A property map is attached:

65 Hornet aka Lorine & Derick

Post  65hornet on Wed Jun 29, 2011 3:50 am

Thanks for the compliments Red Riley. It was a lot of work, but all worth it! We went to Spring Thing this year & visited the couple we bought the Hornet from. They enjoyed seeing it. We let them take it for a ride. It was fun! We also met you in Minnesota. We were looking for a Riley or Hornet at that time. We were there with our Innocenti.
Paul, It will be good to see the two of you. Glad to hear you decided to go! Yes, hopefully, we will have brakes for the entire trip; with no other malfunctions! It is about a 17.5 hour trip for us, what about you? We are driving the Hornet.
The fireworks in Chattanooga are Sunday night, the 3rd.
We will be arriving at the hotel early on the 4th.
See you all soon!

We are in here! I may have the distinction of having the first car in town for MME. Not sure what building I'll be staying in, but my truck is parked in front of hotel 3. . Allready hit the twisties on our way up to lookout mountain.

65 Hornet,

Congratulations on driving the Hornet! I don't know enough at this stage just how reliable Walter the Hornet will be. Plus we need to have at least two MiNis along so Alex and Suzy aren't stuck with the Ford F150 for the rallye and other local driving. When I was somewhat younger I always drove one or the other of my Minis to the shows.....but now.... It will be pretty much a straight shot down I-75 from Dayton to Chattanooga -- time for the trip depends what our old pickup and trailer with the parts can handle the hills, but we will be in late afternoon on the 4th, I would bet.

Brian -- what the heck are you doing there so early??? Helping Hugh out??

Paul,
We're having a family vacation this week, staying at a house on lookout mountain with daughters and grandkids. I offered to help Hugh out next week if he needs an extra hand.

Okay, I'm in building 3, or as I'm calling it, Cellblock 3.
Not certain where we will be able to gather as I haven't talked to Hugh yet.

Well Red Riley and I are here for the show but only managed to have 5 booted minis on the show grounds. Otherwise it's a great gathering of many Minis with a few booted minis. Lots of drives with more to come. The Beetles band was surprisingly good tonight. Three more days to go..... I am sure Brian or I will be posting pictures or links to pictures when better internet connections are available.
