The club sponsors many events throughout the year for members to get to know one another. One such event will be taking place on Sunday, May 22nd. Members should meet at 9am at the Starbucks on Ruby Drive in Golden, Colorado. Bring a picnic lunch and join the group as they make the drive to Poudre Canyon.
On June 4th , club members can attend two events. The first event is a monthly car show taking place at First and Main Town Center at Colorado Springs, CO. This is a great opportunity for proud mini cooper owners to show off their cars. The event is taking place from 7:30 am to 10am.
Also on that day, club members will have the change to take a mini vacation to Scottsbluff National Monument near Scottsbluff Nebraska.
