    Spotter cards! Get your Motoring Alliance spotter cards here!

    What's that? You've never heard of spotter cards?

    Ok, here's the deal. You stow a few in your glove box and when you spot a MINI parked somewhere you take out a card, write your MA username on the back, tuck the card under the wiper (or any other conspicuous place) and then motor away.

    Hopefully the owner will decide to visit MA (note the subtle and inconspicuous URL on the back of the card) and become a member, and you'll end up with more people on MA from your local area.

    They're high quality cards (don't let my lousy pics fool you), coated and shiny on the front but you can write on the back. In order to see whether there's any actual interest in these things, we're offering the first run at near cost -- rounding down in your favor and for simplicity -- at 10 cents a card (plus shipping, which will vary since you'll only pay actual).

    If you're interested, send me a pm telling me how many you want and where to ship them and I'll figure the shipping and give you a total. Thanks!

    I think one of these was included in a package I got from DT not too long ago and I've been holding onto it in the off chance another MINI winds up in the area. I'll probably place an order for a handful later down the road, they're a great idea.

    Chad at Detroit Tuned has non-spotter version of these. The same but different as in the spotter version is not coated on the spotter side so you can write on it.

    Thanks to the kind folks in MINI5280 I think there was a spotter card in all the swag bags they handed out on registration.

    The design is by Tüls and Rally. Thanks to Steve for printing and handling the spotter cards.

    I used a bunch of the old NAM spotter cards around here a few years ago (still have a couple hundred of them). There are more NAM members than you would expect from this part of MD.....but maybe that's just a coincidence.....

    I put a couple MA cards on MINIs in the last week or two. It's always fun to tag and leave before the owner comes back. You have no idea how he/she will react and you may never find out, but you write your username on the back of the card, so you never know.....

    Tis always a good idea to share MA with a fellow MINI owner.
