MTTS starts next week - are you ready?? There are small groups of members attending several of the different stops during this year's big event. Hopefully you'll have the time to come along on one of the legs. Here's a brief overview of the itinerary. Early Thursday afternoon a small group of us will be headed north towards San Francisco. Friday in San Francisco there's a MINI Cross scheduled, and later that evening a MINI Countryman Preview Party. Saturday morning we'll head southward to Los Angeles. Saturday's schedule in Los Angeles looks the same as San Francisco, so we might have to find the California clubs to see about some entertainment. Sunday morning we'll pack up and head out to Arizona. MINI of Tempe and MINI North Scottsdale (supported by Dynamic MINI Collective) have teamed up to host a Pool party at Hotel Valley Ho. Monday morning it's back to the MINIs for the fun ride back to Las Vegas. Monday night we're in for a "COOL" treat! Desert MINI of Las Vegas is hosting a Party at the minus5 Ice Lounge inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place,. Inside the "Lodge" guests will enjoy food, ice-cold beer and a variety of fine wines. Once coated and gloved, you'll be escorted into the world-famous "Ice Lounge" for a once-in-a-lifetime experience and our exclusive MINI Takes the States specialty cocktail. You must be 21 years of age or older to attend and the party is FREE to the first 250 guests with proper MTTS credentials. While the temperature will soar above 100 outside, the "Lodge" will be a comfy 74 degrees and the "Ice Lounge" is kept at a constant 28 degrees Fahrenheit, or -5 degrees Celsius. Please dress accordingly. If you can't make the ice lounge - party headquarters for the later evening will be back at Palace Station. Tuesday morning, we'll be crawling back into the daylight to start the next leg of the trip. We'll be headed to Salt Lake City - Tuesday evening we'll be joining MINI of Murray for an evening of fun, food, refreshing beverages and giveaways, with another chance to check out the MINI Countryman. Wednesday morning we'll rally up and head out to travel the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats and then out to Grand Junction, CO to rest up before the big arrival in Winter Park and Denver on Thursday.
