Hello from Virginia Beach.

Most of you probably know that the world record for the most MINI/Minis in convoy, and verified by Guinness, was broken recently in Blackpool England. They had 269.

On JUNE 10th 2007 three MINI/Mini clubs will come together to attempt to break that record and bring it to the US. We invite all to attend and encourage those who cannot to find some MINI/Minis to attend in their stead.

Se7en Cities MINI, HR Club MINI and River City MINIs from Richmond will host this attempt. All proceeds from this event will go to the Families of Fallen Navy Seals. MC2 is getting behind this as is Corporate MINI. We need all owners to get the word out and spread the info.

Our Goal is 300+ MINI/Minis. The event will start at 3pm on Sunday the 10th of JUNE. We will Rally at the Virginia Beach Amphitheatre. The Local Police will block our route and the Seals will assist in getting participant info, VIN#s etc required by Guinness at the start point. A local Irish Pub, Conklins Irish Rover, Family owned (owner is a retired Force Master Chief) will host the after event festivities and Entertainment is scheduled.

Any Help, Suggestions are welcome and we hope to see as many as possible attend. Info at,

Clubs from as far north as Pennsylvania are expected to participate. Let them know if you plan to join in so they can get somewhat of an idea before the record setting day!
