FALL COLORS RUN 2011 IS ON!! October 28-30

Hey Gang, date has been set!!!

Routes are set pending lunch stop scheduling. Still waiting to hear back from the two restaurants.

Once again we'll be at the Highland Inn with overflow rooms down the street at the Montvalee Motel.

A little "cat out of the bag" news, We will have lunch once again at C.J. Maggies in Elkins WV. That place was so good last year we had to go back.

The routes are going to be every bit as good as last years and they route 678 out of McDowell, VA!

Stay tuned here as news develops this post will be updated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


UPDATE
All updates will be done under the ORANGE UPDATE line

October 28-30, 2011.

Once again we'll be back at historic Highand Inn in Monterey, VA.


Friday night we'll be gathered on the porch and get reacquainted and share some stories. Barring and traffic snafus on I-64! Saturday we'll hit the road early and have a really neat lunch stop and of course, take several stops for pics along the way. Then we'll get back to the Inn for our traditional dinner. Hopefully, Chef Lisa can round up some trout again.

When Sunday dawns it's more motoring, with naturally, more photo ops and another real neat lunch spot.

Make sure to join us for this years event.

You can make your own reservations by calling the Inn at 1-888-466-4682 and make your reservations for October 28-30. Make sure to tell them you're with the MINI/Fall Colors Run or they won't let you reserve a room!

The Inn's website is http://www.highland-inn.com/index.html#TitlePage

SUNDAY

The Swinging Bridge Restaurant in beautiful downtown Paint Bank, VA will be our destination for our early afternoon lunch stop. It's a pretty unique eatery with an actual swinging bridge INSIDE the restaurant. Here's their website: http://www.theswingingbridge.com/

They unfortunately, don't take reservations, so to pass the time there is also the adjacent Paint Bank General Store to pass the time away in. Here's their site: http://www.paintbankgeneralstore.com

Lunch will probably happen around 2PM, so make sure to get breakfast at the Inn or at Bright's across the street in Monterey before the day gets started.

New to the club and don't know what this is about?  Trust me, this is one of those runs you do not want to miss.  We spend the days driving around Western VA and West VA in the mountains surrounded by the changing trees.  It is absolutely gorgeous driving and the fun of being surrounded by your friends.  We stop to eat at fabulous places and have plenty of picture taking opportunities.

The Inn is also a highlight.  It is a very old place and has it's interesting anomilies, like the shower often changes from hot to cold.  But the people are fantastic, the place is dog friendly.  Also the atmosphere of being surrounded by all MINI owners is like being part of a fraternity instead of a single stranger in a place unknown.  We tend to gather in the parlor or tavern to spin yarns.  Or sit out on the first or second floor porches in rocking chairs sharing wine. 

There are only a limited number of rooms at the Inn and it books up quickly, so I advise you get your room booked now and mark it on your calendar.

I agree with Kathy aka 2FUN4ME 100% this is an event you should not miss  003 This was the first event I attended with HRMinis and it was a blast. I now have a bunch of MINIacs from Hampton Roads I can call my friends  002 This will be my 3rd time at the INN and I look forward to many many more.

When the INN becomes fully booked (and it WILL), another option is the Montvalle Motel which is right down the street and an easy walk to the Highland.

Book now, book soon and getting ready for some fun roads and great people  080
