I'm game for helping to organise something, would be good to have something earlier in the year

I'm a member of Tayside Fife MOC

Think the best plan would be to get some road runs sorted and actually listen to the mini scene locally and see how much support we have these days and what people want from a mini show...

Especially get in touch with Caledonian club and the imm organisers, to see what their trials and tribulations were when they organised their brilliant events, there is no planning for some people (thefew) who want to spoil it for everyone.

There are so many other thoughts in my head about this like best location, support from mini suppliers (who are prepared to travel north of the border) facilities, events, road runs, show n shine, club stands, layouts, Shari g show with other vehicle brands to add interest for majority,( like mg owners or another classic brand-sspread some costs)

I cou,d go on all day here...

We could mix it and have an all British built classic cars event. There's also plenty of great roads north of the border

Would be up for this......once I get my car back on the road! Nice event up in the Perthshire would be great, just to keep it central, and there's fantastic roads round that way.

I used to love the Scottish mini weekend, but if you've never organised something like this, you'll have no idea how much work goes into it... Even if you're trying to keep it simple!

Good luck to anyone who takes this on!
