If you’re participating in MTTS 2014, you’re invited to caravan with MINI5280 club members between Grand Junction, CO and Dallas, TX. We’re using a GroupMe group named ‘MTTS-MINI5280-GndJct-Dallas’ to send text messages and more to each other along the way. DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE.

It is a new Year with a new MINI5280 staff, well mostly new. We have myself, Rich Craighill President, we have Jamie Shope Vice President, we have Stephanie Nelson Secretary and we have Bill Thompson our Treasurer. We have kept Rick Gonzales as our webmaster. Help me thank the out going MINI5280 staff, Don S., Ray G., Kristan Y. and Alan N. They did an awesome job and my new staff looks forward to following in their footsteps!
Through the next 2 years we hope to keep the club doing what we do best, have fun.
We have several challenges over the next few years, a new format for this years MINIs In The Mountains, and a new location for MINIs In The Mountains 2015. The previous club Vice President, Ray Gross, is our chair for the 2014 MINIs In The Mountains on the Road. This version of MITM is abbreviated because of MINI TAKES THE STATES. We will be Co-sponsoring with MINI USA in Grand Junction CO for our portion of MITMotR. Look for updates to come thru the following months. For MITM 2015, we go back to our familiar MITM events, but with a new Location, Snowmass CO. Jeremy Nelson and Ray Gross are co-chairing this event. Keep your eyes out for information also for this event.
So far this year we have kept up old favorites for Drives, and club meetings. Jamie has created our new FaceBook Club Drives page, which has been well received. So for media we have our NorthAmericanMotoring Forums location, we have MotoringAlliance Forums Location, we have our webpages, MINI5280.org and MINIsInTheMountains.com, we have our FB page for MINI5280 and MITM , plus our Group Drives page. If anyone has suggested Club drives, use the Forums or the FB Club Drives page, if you have normal Club questions, use the forums or the MINI5280 page. This helps us keep things clean.
I look forward to meeting everyone in the club and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate in sending me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or PM on FB.
Thank you again,
Rich Craighill, Mr. President.
