Here it is Mini/MINI amigos, sorry about the short notice, hope you can make it!!

Mini Keys Run 2005
May 15, 2005
Sponsored by Minis of Miami


Hello Mini/MINI friends, Keys time is here again!!! NEW AND IMPROVED!! BETTER THAN BEFORE!! ONCE IN A LIFETIME EVENT!!!! NATURAL INGREDIENTS ONLY!!

If you went to any of the past three Keys Runs, you KNOW you had a good time.

Meet us at South Motors MINI on US1, Sunday, May 15, 2005, at around 8:00 AM, then take a leisure drive (yeah leisure, right!!) to mile marker 53.5, turn left, and there we are. I am in favor of a couple of stops along the way, (feed the tarpon, drink Cuban coffee, go inside World Wide Sportsman) or whatever the group wants to do. We will return that afternoon at whatever time is convenient.

Once there we can swim in the ocean, swim in the pool, swim in the canal, fish off the seawall, go fishing at the pier, go snorkeling, eat, drink, eat some more, sleep, play dominoes, whatever.

Due to the limited parking space, we are limiting participants to 20 Minis/MINIS. Please do not invite all your friends in the SUVs with the wave runners to come and join us. Just drive your Mini/MINI. (variants are allowed).

What to bring??, glad you asked!! Sunscreen, towels, frisbees, fishing gear, swimming trunks, bikinis, speedos, tangas, sunglasses, hats, beach toys, and whatever beach related stuff can fit in your Mini.

Who to bring?? Wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, children, mom, dad, whomever fits in your Mini.

Minis of Miami will provide the food and drinks for club members and their guests. If you have special needs, you may take your own.

Hope you can make it! The last runs have been a blast! It is 100 miles each way, about a 2 hour drive, (ok, maybe less by Mini) Please call Peter at 305-804-4051. Remember there is a 20 Mini maximum so call now to reserve your spot!

I will be making a special trip from NZ for this event!!

Too bad I am going to miss the run. We will still be out of town as of next Sunday.

Any chance to move it up a week or couple of weeks later?

Wish I had know about this meet earlier... :| I would have made time to go. I haven't been to the Keys in a few years. Is this a run that happens more than once per year? If so I will def plan for the next one!

Let's see, move it up one week? that's this Sunday, mother's day, two weeks? Memorial day it's a full weekend for me, and the next available time will be in September, so the 15th it is!

Run happens when the house is available, Maria's days off coincide, no hurricanes are threatening, full moon, kid's schools's are not in conflict, no renters in the house, and the ying and yang are correct for the run, in other words, can't really plan too far in advance, will try to do it again latter in the year.

10 confirmed Minis/MINIS so far!

Ok, what a bummer! :cry:

This year has been crazy as far as scheduling is concerned. All MINI related events have fallen at times that conflict with either school, trips, etc. Arrrghhhh!!!

Mother's day is Sunday May 8th, right? :?:


I think I am ready to give it up. :(

Hey! The MoM Keys Run is almost here! I can't wait! The weather is forcasted to be awesome! I'm going to call everyone on the guest list but in case I want it posted that we have changed the start point! We will not meet at South Motors.

KEYS RUN STARTS AT TROPICAL PARK, BIRD RD ENTRANCE, AT 8 AM!

That's spittin' distance from the Palmetto so we can quickly get on our way south! Remember to gas up before you meet us!

Nothing like the sight of 16 Mini/MINIS to brighten up a Sunday morning!!
Hope everyone made it back good shape, I drove on Card Sound road cause the 18 mile strech was slow, anyone went on this?
Once again Maria wins the biggest fish caught, you are in her house!!
