Mini Meet West, the biggest (West Coast North America) Mini/MINI show of the year!
(quoted from the MMW website) Mini Meet West is an annual gathering of Mini enthusiasts and owners of both the Classic and New MINI. Participants come from all over Canada, the USA, Mexico and as far
away as Europe. Last year’s event included approximately 180 registrants and participants. With MMW2010 being held in the picturesque, tourist destination city of Penticton BC June 28 through July 2, 2010, we are expecting to attract over 200 registrants this year. (end quote)
