WHO: ALL MINI COOPER OWNERS (Vintage Coopers Welcome)

WHAT: Car Rally at Richmond, Missouri’s Annual Mushroom Festival
Link: http://www.richmondchamber.org/festival.html

WHEN: SATURDAY, MAY 3RD, 2014

WHERE: RICHMOND, Missouri (40 MILES EAST OF KANSAS CITY) This location is a short drive from Kansas City and Mid-Missouri, however we encourage all MINI’s through out the state to make the trip to Richmond for this MINI Rally.

Google Map: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=301+West ... 5&t=m&z=17

They are putting us by the Farris Theater on West Main Street. For those who are needing an address for their GPS devices: 301 West Main Richmond MO 64085. Some of the streets around the courthouse will be closed so you will need to take some side streets to get to our location.

I would like to encourage everyone to show up prior to 10:30 am as we will be part of the festival and I am certain people will want to see all of the different MINI's. A rough itinerary is list below:

TIMETABLE:
8:30 AM-9:00 AM: ARRIVE IN RICHMOND, MO Farris Theatre @ 301 W Main St. Richmond, MO
9:00 AM-12:00 PM: SOCIALIZE- MUSHROOM FESTIVAL ACTIVITIES
12:00 PM (NOON) : ORGANIZE FOR MUSHROOM FESTIVAL PARADE
12:15 PM: DRIVE TO PARADE LINE-UP
1:00 PM: MUSHROOM FESTIVAL PARADE
2:00 PM: RETURN TO RALLY SITE
2:30 PM: Optional Social gathering

(PARK YOUR MINI AT THE RALLY SITE AND COME TO THE OPTIONAL SOCIAL GATHERING, STAY AS LONG AS YOU LIKE OR DEPART AFTER THE PARADE)

WHY: This will be the third year that there will be a MINI Cooper Rally at the Richmond Mushroom Festival. Last year, ten MINI’s attended (26 were pre-registered & planned to attend before some winter weather showed up) and we all enjoyed the parade and diversity of the Mushroom Festival. There were many unique vendors and a wide array of foodstands. The people of Richmond loved seeing the MINI’s in the parade and wanted us to come back this year.

DETAILS: The Mushroom Festival is an annual event that attracts a lot of people and they start on Thursday evening and conclude on Sunday. They have provided us a area to display our MINI’s next to vendors. There is no cost, just a great time for fellowship, to display our MINI’s and participate in their Mushroom Festival parade.

MINI PASSION: Hilary Morrissey is a passionate MINI owner. She has attended MINI Cooper shows and events throughout the state as well as hosting the MINI’s to Macon show in October 2011 & 2013. The opportunity to get a group of MINI’s together at a fun event seems very appealing, so here we go! Mark Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 on your calendar and make the trip to Richmond, Missouri!

TO MAKE RESERVATIONS: Please e-mail Hilary Morrissey at ministomacon@gmail.com with your first and last name, the year, model, and color of your MINI.

Got Questions/Comments? Contact Hilary Morrissey at ministomacon@gmail.com

Hope to see you at the Mushroom Festival in Richmond, MO!

Thanks,

Hilary

Email Update!

To: MINI Cooper Owners/Enthusiasts
Please mark your calendar for Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 and make plans to travel to Richmond, MO for the 3rd MINI's to Richmond, MO Car Rally for the Annual Mushroom Festival! Last year I had 26 MINI Coopers pre-registerated to come but mother nature throw us a curve with some winter weather.

I am optimistic the weather will be favorable and want to invite you to attend the MINI Cooper Rally. The Mushroom Festival should be a fun event for all and the organizers really want us to participate in the parade. Please pass the word on to others as we can have a really good turn out.

If you would like to attend the rally, please pre-register by emailing me at ministomacon@gmail.com with your first and last name, year, model and color of your MINI Cooper. Attached to this email is a flyer with more details, time table...etc

Hope to see you in Richmond, MO on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Email Update!

The MINI's to Richmond, MO Car Rally is less than one month away and we are trying to put together an event than should be alot of fun! Mushroom Festival is probably one of the biggest small town festivals in the state. It has many unique displays, vendors and food stands. Over the last two years the MINI's in the Mushroom Festival parade have developed a reputation as a crowd favorite. I believe because of our participation in the parade the MINI population in Richmond has increased. The rally has good participation from around the state however a good turn will depend on our friends from the Kansas City area. Hope to hear from everyone soon so we can finalize the details! Please pass this on to any other MINI Cooper owners you know.

If you would like to participate please email me (Hilary) at ministomacon@gmail.com
with your first and last name, car information (year, model, color of the car)

We are thinking about doing this one. Sounds like a fun way to spend a day doing something we've never done before.

So does the group from the KC area get together and travel in a pack to the event or do we just meet up there?

Sure. We could meet somewhere on 210 HWY & 435. Maybe somewhere around the Ameristar Casino. Just a thought... :P
