Greetings all MidCal MINI Peoples. A great deal has taken place in all of our MINI lives this past year and as a result the Club has been rather dormant. Work, family and life in general has kept everyone hopping and our MINIs have been quietly and faithfully taking us where we needed to go and where we needed to be. Tina (MINIEOR) and Tom, the Club President and her husband have been busy with adorable Zoey, John and Suzie are moving to San Jose and Jim and Janet are never far from their bikes.
With that being said, Tom and Tina are hosting the Annual MidCal MINI’s Potluck Christmas Party again this year and are looking forward to seeing old Club members again. Tom will resume his crown as Master of the BBQ so the main course is provided with the rest being whatever you want to bring, as this is a potluck and BYOB event. Early afternoon arrival (3:00) is encouraged to expand the time for enjoying the great scenery and to catch up on the past year with expanded chat time. As usual, all are welcome to stay as long as you want and if you partake of the Holiday libations and you don’t want to drive home, just bring your sleeping bag and stay the night. There are two bedrooms available, one with a futon and one with an air bed (first come, first serve so reserve early) and of course their is plenty of room on the living room floor. The party venue also has room for a trailer or motor home; no hookups are available however.
If the group would like to do a MINI run before eating begins, let Tina know if you would like to volunteer to lead it.
As per tradition all are welcome to participate in a gift exchange. The RULES are not to spend more than $20 and try to select something with a MINI theme; either for a MINI or having to do with a MINI. If you want to play, bring a gift. Tina is also thinking about holding an ugly sweater contest. Any one game? Let Tina know.
RSVP as soon as possible so that Tina and Tom know just how much to BBQ and so all those attending can be informed as to quantity of potluck goodies to bring. A MINI Club meeting will be held as well to begin the plan for 2015.
