Other notes of interest:

- This is now also organized as a charity fund raiser (Wheels4Hope)
- This event occurs rain or shine (though generally much higher attendance on nice weather Saturdays)
- It is generally well attended meaning parking can be tight, especially to get all the like cars together, get there early

Please post up if you are planning to attend and maybe you can coordinate with some other Tar Heel MINIacs to show up in numbers!

This thread will occasionally be thinned of messages like "who is going this weekend?", "count me in", "let's meet ...." to keep it from getting so long. However, if anyone posts pics of one they attend or shares their experience, we'll let those live on!
