The Tar Heel MINI Motoring Club's 8th Annual Blue Ridge Parkway Tour is June 16-19, 2016. This year's BRP Tour, the 8th annual running, will start at the northern terminus of the BRP, near Waynesboro, VA. The Tour will kick off with a Welcome get-together meal on Thursday evening. Early Friday morning, we'll break up into our three groups - Bear, Wolf & Otter, heading south stopping at various overlooks and points of interest along the way. Our first overnight stop will be Friday evening in Sparta, NC. The second overnight stop will be in Asheville, NC on Saturday evening. Sunday morning we'll hit the BRP for the final leg to the southern terminus of the BRP in the Cherokee, NC area. That should be about lunch time and everyone will go their separate ways with a ton of memories and stories!! Please note: Our little club has grown so much that we do require registration for our major events. We collect a nominal fee during registration to cover the costs associated with the BRP Tour, and utilize registration numbers to book venues. The BRP Tour is open to any MINI owner who shows up. But without registration, we can not guarantee you a seat at the welcome and celebration dinners. And really now, who would want to go to an event like this and not leave without a t-shirt, some stickers, a magnetic grille badge and other goodies? We do ask that if you are planning to attend you register to help the organizers and volunteers prepare.
