ok, i know this is not really an "event" but my wife is wanting to finally drive her car in some nice twisties. so saturday we are planning to make the trip to Boone from Winston Salem. probably jump on the blue ridge parkway up there and eat lunch/dinner at Daniel Boone Inn. the prices are reasonable for the type place it is (Hillbilly Hideaway is very similar). you check out their website for prices and menu http://www.danlbooneinn.com/

i think Whistler and his family are going, and possibly a couple other Minis.

the more the merrier in my opinion. if you want to tag along, let us know. i guess we could all meet at Flow Mini saturday morning before heading out...i want to check out the new coupe anyway...
