Day 1: Gathering of all things Mini in the parking lot of the Lakeside Hotel. Beautiful day with views of Okanagan lake, there is a nice sandy beach to hang out on. Most shows I’ve been to in Canada happen on a lawn somewhere, I love this, it’s much nicer lounging on the grass than on some steamy parking lot. I’ve never seen so many classics in one place, I think we outnumbered the new Mini’s by just a bit. No new Mini’s in the race class, and there was only one new Clubman?
Dave Thomas: driving around the world in his Mini wagon.
Erik?: just finished his SPI mini all rebuilt, every nut and bolt removed and polished.
Dan Berglund: Pickup that earned his 5000 mile badge recently.
Mike Smith’s Vtec Mini because he passed me on the uphill like a rabid cheetah.
