Orange County Fair Grounds
Costa Mesa, California

Blue Skies, mild temps, and a whole lot of Minis. The Classic Mini in the lobby was joined by a liquid Yellow MINI Cooper. And while the vendors and the Autocross got set up Minis just kept rolling in.

Once In A Blue Moon productions, who did the MME Video, was out shooting cars in the late afternoon light. The MOALA worker Bees got up front parking so the entry was wall to wall Minis. And the Registration/Photo Model display room was a beehive of activity. Lots of the well know MM Board Posters have shown up. Chuck and Spank, (who it appears developed a sudden summer cold that prevented him from teaching classes on Friday) and more.

Minimotors & Miniguy made it with several Cars. M-Tech showed up in a Moke borrowed from MiniGuy .The number of participants has rolled past 200, with more than 150 cars (estimated, kind of hard to keep track. The hotel bar has different band every night and appears to be quite the hot spot!...stay tuned!
