    I already have my hotel room reservation and have sent in my $$$$, see you in the Rockies this summer. Hoping to have my Innocenti done in time, if not I'll bring my Racing Green instead.

    Where will MMEMW Minis/MINIs be parked? Together? Security? Parking cost? (Summer Parking is Free, though Westin Hotel site says $20/day offsite)

    Looking at almost $1,200 Canadian for Meet Reggie & Hotel...straws break backs.
