Followed a Countryman S through Disney and out the North Service area to Reams Road. I believe it was BRG (If they have that Green for the Countryman) with a white roof. It was raining pretty hard, so I could be off on the colors and not sure they noticed me behind them in my Clubman.

Was at Mini Orlando on Friday - Saw a really nice deep gray Clubman (JCW), had a sunshine mini badge on the front grille. :waving:

Was hoping to meet you! Think my SA, said it belonged to a "Ryan?"
How do we get the badges? (Remember I am new so, I apoliogize if this is a silly question)

That was probably mine. Rocket was at Orlando MINI all week while I was in Germany. If it had a checkered side stripe with red mirror caps and a red hood scoop it was mine. And I'm Andrea, definitely not a Ryan!

For the SSM badges, contact MiniBee through the Club Business forum, he sells them. I believe there is a thread in the forum about ordering badges.

I will take a stab that I saw 2phun at Best Buy Winter Garden on Sunday. According to his tag.

Yep, that was me! I've been living there recently. I should just set up a cot outside the Geek Squad desk. Was without desktop, backup desktop, and netbook all at the same time for two weeks. ](*,) Talk about painful!

Ah computers.... Happens to be the hobby (job) I have that pays all the bills. Wonder if I can get paid for my other hobby, my Mini's.
If you have PC issues, advice is free, but maybe I can save ya some money. Always happy to help if I can.

Just tagged a blue one with Undie 500 stickers in Avalon Park... probably in the pizza joint as I buzzed through after going to Publix. I tagged another one at the Waterford Toys r Us last week, i think it was Dark Silver, had what looked like a hand-painted white logo that wrapped around the rear side windows onto the back glass.

That was Secritariat, clubWomans MINI. If you had looked at the grill you probably would've seen her SSM badge too!

Yep. She posted a photo of the DAMM card on Facebook. That explains it.

If you spot a Midnight Black JCW Coupe, you should leave a tow hook on it. :)

Wow cool. Just saw this thread. I saw quite a few yesterday...

*Yellow Cooper in the Target parking lot (on Colonial) in the afternoon. Was hoping to meet you (badge said "keep calm and motor on" or something like that), but alas we had to get home.

*An all-silver Cooper headed west on I-4 near the Ivanhoe exit (gave a friendly toot and then passed us). Didn't get a look at the driver, but my wife waved.

*A Red convertible S headed north on Mills (near Fairbanks) in the early evening--middle-aged gentleman and a younger guy in the passenger seat.

Not sure if these belong to anyone here. :-k I'll start keeping a database in my glove compartment.
