    (Apologies upfront to Nathan if I have yet again posted in the wrong forum.)

    I am putting in my vacation notices for 2012 and would like to know if the dates for Helenblitz 2012 have been finalized yet?

    I had an AWESOME time last year and I'm really looking forward to it again.

    The Helenblitz folks sent me a note about the 2012 event. Feb 17-19 are the dates. This thread has been moved into the Helenblitz 2012 area too.

    I'm sure the folks involved will be along and post more info about the event soon.

    This is for our local club, upstatemins, based out of Greenville, SC. I was looking to find out what the setup was but there doesn't seem to be an organization page ala MOTD.

    Typically everyone meets at the hotel on Fri, then group up and do drives.
    Sat everyone meets at the winery for group photo, then go on a couple drives. RC racing and hanging in the parking lot late afternoon. Then dinner and auction at the Troll on Sat eve.

    About to make reservations

    Talked to my wife last night. There isn't much out there on this event but Erika likes it so I am gonna take a chance:fingerscrossed:. Erika, I'll look you and your husband up while we are there. Looking forward to meeting you.

    10+ hours from Northern Virginia should shake the cobwebs out of the new MINI. We'll be celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary on Saturday. Our 10 year celebration was a cruise to the Dominican Republic. My bet is nerding out on MINIs all weekend might just eclipse Mayan ruins (for me at least).

    If anyone has attended this in the past, please pass on any tips (e.g., try to come in on the SC side, etc.), experiences, etc. I am also wondering what the vendor turnout will be like. I know Way Motor Works will be there (I have my eye on a 19mm or 22mm rear sway bar). Also looking for sunroof vinyl. WRR hasn't mentioned it (unless I was zoning).

    Mike,

    We'll be celebrating our 11th anniversary on Valentine's Day. :biggrin5:

    If you & the wife are able, feel free to drive down to Hampton Roads and join our little caravan that is leaving Friday morning. We no longer have the pullout couch, but the one we have now has two very comfy recliners built-in that are great for sleeping on.

    Yes, Way will be there, but not as a vendor. It's a vacation for him. :cool:

    There are a LOT of great shops in the area and the roads are FABULOUS!

    The actual "Cabbage Patch Hospital" is just outside town, too!

    11 years -- isn't that crazy? It must be love because it only feels like 5 years :blush2:. Thanks for the invite but we are leaving on Thursday. My wife is looking for an excuse to use her vacation time. I just made the reservation, got the MINI Cooper group rate. I was reassured when she didn't respond with "MINI who?".

    Let's definitely grab some of that MINI wine and toast to our continued marrital "bliss?":biggrin5:

    "Send to Car" Tip - MINI Connected

    This is just a nit but I thought I might save someone else 10 minutes of frustration. Google maps doesn't like the Helendorf hotel address. You'll only get options to "Send to Mail or Phone" if you google the address. You can, however, use the Alpine Village Shoppes location:
    8016 S Main Street
    Helen, GA 30545
    That address allows you to "Send to Car".
