    New Eastern TN area created!

    Exciting news for MINI fans in and around the Tar Heel footprint! We have been fortunate to have MINI owners from near and far join us for a variety of events that we hold. MINIpalooza in the Mountains saw folks come from 12 different states (including NC) join us to enjoy the twisty fun. Already MINI's Slay the Sleeping Dragon is looking to top that with attendees from 14 different states registered. As a club, we have also benefited from the work of lots of volunteers, dating all the way back to the founding of the club, who worked to implement an infrastructure and framework that would allow the club to grow and flourish.

    As a result of contacts made during recent events, we are pleased to announce the creation of this new section of the forums to serve as a place for our fellow MINIacs from across the border in Tennessee to have a place to organize events, plan get togethers, and enjoy some online fellowship with other MINI owners and fans.

    This is not unprecedented for the THMMC. We have had a forum area for SW Virginia for years now. More importantly, we try to work with our adjacent clubs to encourage sharing of the MINI fun.

    Join us in welcoming our fellow MINI fans as they learn their way around THMMC. If they post up any events, please consider attending to help them grow. After all, they have benefitted us by attending events in our neck of the woods.

    Thanks so much for setting this area up for us ET folks to plan and communicate about all things MINI!

    I have waved at a lot of MINI's on this side of the mountain and feel it is time we start to organize some meet ups and fun runs.

    I would really like any guidance the members of the club can give me for starting up monthly meet ups for the North East Tennessee area (Johnson City, Kingsport and Bristol)

    1) Meeting Location:
    Currently I have Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City willing to host us for when we meet up here but I know we have folks in Bristol and Kingsport. Would it be wise to have a location in all three areas so we can rotate our monthly meets?

    2) Meeting Day and Time:
    I would like option to participate in other area meet ups that are already established so I do not want to start a new meet up that would conflict. Would meeting on the 2nd Saturday of the month conflict with any of our currently scheduled meet ups?

    3) The Twisites!
    I learned a lot this past weekend at MINIpalooza on how a fun run works but would still like some pointers on what needs to be done behind the scenes to ensure safety and communication. I grew up in the area so I know some good twisties but would really like suggestions from those of you that have adventured on this side of the mountain and found something to share.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you may offer. I'm really looking forward to getting some stuff going!

    The best piece of advice I can offer is: JUST DO IT.

    You may have low turnout the first few times, but keep setting up meets and get togethers and the odds are pretty good the momentum will eventually catch on. Ditto on runs. I've done a couple runs this year where there were only 2 or 3 other MINIs with me. It is still fun.

    Hey guys!

    It is Alex from Knoxville. I am really looking forward to being involved with such a great group. But like many sales positions I work on Saturday, so if some events could potentially be on Sunday that would be awesome! I have a few other owners down here just itching to go out and drive with Fall coming up. We have been thinking about a few things and I think with our powers combined we can get a good group going.

    Great to see you here Alex!
    I am totally fine with putting together some Sunday meet ups. Anyone else near the North East Tennessee area that would considering joining in on some events want to weigh in on a Sunday fun motoring meet up?
    We could always alternate Saturday and Sunday meet ups?

    Welcome Eastern TN! My MINI Motoring life started in Knoxville so this little branch is near n dear to my heart. MisterQ is hoping he'll see some familiar grilles pop in.
