I missed it last year. Ginger is in the process of being fixed (I had to order another part) and she should be ready along with Lady Jane. I will be in the middle of school but I have done it before. It just means I am locked up in the hotel a little longer completing assignments before I can come out and play.

SPRING THING XV
Feb. 19-21, 2010


Well, here we are again. It’s time to stir things up. The Spring Thing is on the move again. Cocoa Beach is the destination. What could be more wonderful than a weekend on the beach!

The host hotel is the Holiday Inn Cocoa Beach Oceanfront Resort, 1300 N Atlantic Ave, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. Call 1-321-392-1647 9 to 5 M-F. You can also call Amanda 321-392-1653. The room rate is $84.99 per night and $184.99 for beach front or a loft style room, you must mention Group Code M I N to get these rates.

This is a rough idea of the activities and the times for the Thing. As always times may change due to circumstances we cannot control, but we do try to run on time most of the time.

Friday 19th - Registration time TBA
Friday 19th - 6:30pm Meet and Greet Meet at Hotel
Friday 19th - 7:00pm Drive to dinner

Saturday 20th - 8:00am till ??? Swap Meet
Saturday 20th - 10:30 drive or rally
Saturday 20th - Lunch
Saturday 20th - Afternoon Funkana
Saturday 20th - Possibly a slot car race if we have enough interest please e-mail
Saturday 20th - Dinner on your own
Saturday 20th - Event TBA for after dinner

Sunday 21st - 9:00am Car Show at hotel
Sunday 21st - 1:30 Awards

Hope to have all done by 2:30 for those who need to drive home.

Cocoa Beach and the surrounding area have a lot to offer. When you have free time please take the opportunity to explore the countryside. Please remember that Florida is a tourist destination for lots of people from different countries who are not completely relaxed with our driving rules (like keeping to the right side of the road). So be very watchful when you are driving around the area.

Also, it goes without saying that Alcohol and driving do not mix; so when you are having fun all weekend, if you should be having a few drinks please don’t get behind the wheel of your Mini/MINI.

We hope you all have a great weekend.
We never forget that the Spring Thing has kept going because of your support and attendance. Thank You!

Re: ST15 BOOK HOTEL BY 1/31 - SPECIAL RATE

Postby oneofmini » Sun Jan 24, 2010 1:57 am

Just wanted to let everyone know to book your reservation with the Hotal by January 31st with the spring thing code MIN to get the $84.99 rate. Rates will be going up to $109.99 if booked Feb 1st of later!

The hotel allows dogs 50-LBs and under and there is a dog park right next door.

The Spring Thing committee has a lot of neat things planned for that weekend so we hope you can make some or all of the events!

I think this thread is suffering from being tucked away in Statewide Events, out of sight, out of mind syndrome. No worries, it's next week anyway and if you are going, you know about it.

I can't believe Spring Thing is almost here already. Time has completely slipped by me. I have some reassembly to do this weekend if I want to get to this. Anyone in the Orlando area good with wiring? Norm's bodyguy made a mess of my lights and I can't make out where the problem is.

Visited the event this morning ~ an awesome collection of Minis & MINIS! Spent some time chatting with a gentleman who had just purchased an excellent 2000 gold classic that was in "as new" condition. ;)b Great weather too

So sorry the kids got sick 'cause we had a great time and perfect (a little chilly for us South Florida folks) weather. There's always next year though. Hope the kids are doing much better now.

Pictures yes! I want to see pictures. When I am out of school I can rejoin the real world again. I hope everyone had a great time.

I agree! I want to see pictures too! Unfortunately I couldn't make it but 100% will make it next year.

Anyone have a link to pics or want to post any?

Thanks in advance,
