    I know there was a similar post made earlier this month but I am registered here and at North American Motoring and the STL club does not appear to be very active on either site. I plan on coming out Saturday morning and actually signed up and paid for membership over the weekend. I see tons of MINIs as I drive around so I am just wondering if there is a better place to connect?

    Welcome to the Alliance, the St Louis club has a couple of events they promote pretty well, one being the winery tour in the fall, I am stuck in the middle of the state not much happening here as far as clubs go that why I call M/A home, that other site you mentioned, not so much.
    I save up for the national events, MOTD is the first one on my list this year.

    Yeah I won't make MOTD this year but hope to next year. I guess there is a thing going on near Kansas City that same weekend so I might try to make that. Thanks for the response!!

    There are a few folks in the area that drift in and out. You will get more replies. Go to the local events too, you'll meet some great people.

    Welcome, thanks for joining Motoring Alliance, the FUN and Friendly MINI Community.

    Welcome Tiny, kind of my feelings as well about Stl Mini. I'm on here most every day. Not going to make the Dragon this year but plans are in the works for next. I live 1 hour south of St. Louis.

    The club has several events a year, many of which are well attended.
    The Fall Rallye, Spring Rallye, Winery Run,
    A Holiday Lights drive and party, happy hour get-togethers,
    and ad-hoc drives out of state. I'd say most
    members are not too active on the Internet
    boards anymore. But, as you can see, there
    are many great club events. Welcome!

    Damnit....I thought this was going to be a Pink Floyd thread. :D

    Welcome,
    I'm local to you, but I just don't do any of the local events, not wanting to cast aspersions but the Stl club was a little to "tame" for me when I first got my car & I just never kept up with them.

    Enjoy your ride & if there's ever anything you think I can help you with, feel free to PM me.

    I have been thinking about heading to the Shut-ins and Elephant Rock sometime this summer may give you a holler when I do.

    The St. Louis club is very active but we seem to have trouble posting our events everywhere every time. The best place to find information is our club site or our Facebook site. Here are the links.

    Hope to see you at some events.

    Today's STL MINI Club event is to see how much snow you can plow with the front cowling. I saw no other MINIs out there today, so I guess I win:cool::beer:wink::lol:

    Not sure what you mean by "tame"? Keep up with us and you will have some fun.

    We run the double letter roads in the hills with gusto!

    Unfortunately, The STL MINI Club is not very active on the forums any longer. You may want to keep an eye on Facebook as the Club posts lots there. Also give the website a look like John said. Those of us that are here are long time members of the Club. Some events are spirited others not so much. We do have to obey the rules of the road & don't want to get a member injured. Believe me, seeing a MINI turned up side down on a twisty Missouri road is not a pleasant sight!!! Give an event a try or just show up at a happy hour & introduce yourself, we love new members.
