With 2009 being
the 50th birthday of the Mini, we wanted to do something special,
very special. Follow along with the story and photos and see what
became the best North American Mini event ever! When you're done,
you'll be asking, "When's the next one?!?" Due to the
success of this event, we're planning on a Mini 51, 52, 53, 54...
with the same ingredients.
Let's set the stage...
Springtime in the Great
Smoky Mountains! The flowers were starting to bloom, the temps
were in the 70's, and as you can see, nothing but classic Minis
(102 entered), heaven on earth! CMU took over most of the KOA
campground in Townsend, Tennessee. A beautiful campground with
cabins, lodges, and camp sites on a river (Yes, there were hotels
close by as well.). The picture above shows the ultimate layout
for a Mini party. On the upper left is the movie screen, just
below that is the beer tasting, not pictured (to the left) is the
pavilion with the swap meet.
Take a tour! Start HERE.
