Hey Sandman & Mini Barb...which Tower did you book reservations at, I need to know which Tower the party will be at...lol. I guess I need to make sure to bring lots more of the bar down with me since it went too fast the last trip...haha. :eek:

I suggest a bonfire on the beach. That way maybe Blimey can get a good night sleep . ;-)

Mini Barb
June 9th, 2008, 08:24 PM
I booked at Palms Tower. I don't get to MB very often so I wanted an oceanfront!! Let me know what you need on the bar and I will gladly contribute. I'm excited and can't wait to go. I'll see all of you on Thursday night.

So Mini Barb...I know we were talking about doing two caravans down on Friday. One in the am like 9-10ish meeting somewhere off I-40 and then doing another in afternoon for the people who cannot take off for the day. Where would be a good place to meet off I-40?? Any suggestions? Brier Creek, White Oak....??

Mini Barb
June 18th, 2008, 03:46 PM
Brier Creek is fine with me. Maybe we can start the caravan there and then have meet up places along the way for others to join in. By the way, did I ever tell you that I'm not a leader I'm a follower!! So hopefully someone will volunteer for that. I don't know how I got to be the leader to Manchester's last week!!

GOHEELSMINI
June 18th, 2008, 03:52 PM
Haha, I am sure Sandman would love to lead...just keep him off sand this time...lol;)

Then the am caravan will meet at Brier Creek and anyone can follow on the way down. I will bring my walkie so we can make sure everyone knows how far we are out...(did you hear that Robert Moore...lol)

I'm new to this club and was wondering if anyone's welcome to come along? My husband and I would be thrilled to meet people who love their Minis as much as we do. This would be our very first Mini event and we would be driving in from Jacksonville. Also, are kids invited? We have a 10 year old son that may or may not be going. Thanks. :)

Mini Barb
June 30th, 2008, 01:57 PM
3MyMINI,

Yes, we would be thrilled to have you join us!! Kids are always welcome -- there will probably be others with our group. It's a family event. We will have more details closer to the date, but please make your reservations. Looking forward to meeting you -- there are many events going on over the summer so feel free to join in!

Paleo
July 2nd, 2008, 03:10 PM
My wife just confirmed that she can take off the 18th and 19th, so we will be down there Thursday evening. Anyone else going early that wants to meet up along the way let us know. Will probably leave home around 3-4 am so Mandy can sleep though the first half of the drive. Becky will too for that matter! I might need someone to talk to to keep me awake... oh, I've got Mark's cell phone number, he will be so excited I'm sure he will be up and waxing Twister one last time by then!

So count us in, Paleo +2. Maybe we will bring some fossils for show and tell. Prehistoric sharks teeth work well with the beach theme. Will call for reservations tonight.

GOHEELSMINI
July 2nd, 2008, 03:50 PM

Sgt Pepper
July 28th, 2008, 11:42 PM
Put me down for the morning caravan too! Is the planned route going to take Hwy 220 south? If so I could meet you in the Seagrove area and join you all then.

JoeR
July 29th, 2008, 10:54 AM
We will probably be make the A.M. run...not sure as yet since the kids do have classes that day....I sure they don't mind missing a day of school though. We can meet along the I-40 from the Cary area or further down if we decide to take the scenic route down south on 55.

ROKNMINI and The Kieffer Family have arrived. The wife and kids have gone (back) to sleep. My 2 year old was a little concerned when we left at 9PM since it was dark and there were "no beds in the MINI Cooper". Both the kids were asleep within 15 miles and the wife dozed of shortly there after.

I of course am wide awake after the drive! The swimming pools don't open until 9am, but the restaurant opens at 6am.

We are in room 946 of the Palms Tower for the time being. We'll be moving to the 12th floor tomorrow once the non-smoking room we requested is available. (We were not scheduled to check in until Friday evening...) Chances are we will be at one of the pools when you all arrive. I'll give Twister a call around lunch and check ETA.

I parked in the second (smaller) parking garage on the top level; there were plenty of open spaces there. . .

See you all soon.

We had really good time!

My older son William said his favorite thing was the Mini-Golf. Even though we didn't really keep score, he was declared the winner because he managed two hole-in-one shots. It was his first time playing, but I think it will not be his last; he's got it all figured out how we can use drink holders buried in the back yard to build our own course.

My younger son Benjamin said his favorite was "Allllll the hot tubs". The Breakers resort had so many different pools and hot-tubs to goto, I think he tried them all! He really did not want to leave this morning!

We also had a great time at the Ripley's Aquarium. I think it would have been disappointing if we had paid their asking price to get in, but the boys were all fascinated by it. (Myself included!) The "Ray Bay" with all the various sting rays was pretty neat; especially the "friendship flats" shallow area where you could reach in and touch them. They had a few shows where divers came out and fed the fish. It was really neat when they fed the rays and lured them into the shallows so you could pet them. A little slimy, but pretty neat. I think this was the best part for my wife; she really got a kick out of seeing the kids have so much fun. She commented several times how she never got to do things like that when she was a kid and how happy she was that the boys could have the experience.

We went Sunday morning ad sat thru a sales pitch for a time-share. That is how we got "free" tickets for the aquarium. It was an interesting time-share scheme; with points that could be used at a whole slew of different resorts (Fontana Lodge was on the list...); but in the end quite a bit more money than we were prepared to spend.

I really enjoyed the time away from work and hanging out with family and friends. It was great to meet you all and we hope to do it again soon!

This was my 1st event & I had a great time!! The Nascar was a blast & Mark...next year...:yes4: LOL!!! Susan & Drew...had fun hangin' with you at the Dragon's Lair! I see I will have to work on my game a bit to keep up with your Hole in 1's LOL
Not sure which event we will be able to get to next as my schooling/homework & Tim's homework tends to keep us busy on the weekends & when we aren't doing that we are getting caught up on all the stuff that needs to get done around here. Tim is talking about the Dragon & BRP next year so we will see...:unsure:
Again, thanks guys & I look forward to talking to all of you soon & those of you that I didn't get to meet I hope to meet you soon! :smile:
