    We will be driving down from New Brunswick to join everyone at MoB. Any one coming from Atlantic that wants to drive down with us let me know so we can coordinate departure times from Moncton.

  • caroline kava

  • Ryan Frawley and Dennis Frawley

  • Marty and Shelly Dunn

    Purchased our little coop the week after last year’s event. Been waiting 51 weeks to take this trip in 2013. Will meet at MOB. Prefer taking the Kancamagus route.

  • Marty and Shelly Dunn

    So, I got this announcement 10 minutes ago and called the hotel to book a room only to discover it is sold out. Any suggestions?

  • Kathy S

    will be meeting at Mob but not sure yet if acaravan or direct trip!

  • Kevin

    Sorry to hear Attitash is sold out. Check out for other suggestions.

  • martha & Glory

    I am registered for Minis on top, but will be driving up to the event on that day (Saturday), would love to hook up with a NH group to take Kanc route? Any suggestion as to when we can hook up with others on saturday?

  • Kevin

    Right now I am not aware of a caravan leaving on Saturday, but keep an eye on If one pops up we will add it to that main feeder page. Also, keep in mind the Kanc route is typically driven after the gathering and driver’s meeting at Loon on Saturday morning. (Check the event schedule for more info)

  • Pete and Val

    First timer here! Looking forward to it. We’ll meet you all over at MoB to join the festivities. Happy motoring until then!

  • Marty

    Thought I would provide some feedback. I am a new Mini owner and this in my first trip to Mt. Washington. I participated in the December Christmas Light trip to Loudon organized by the dealership and got the impression the Mt. Washington Trip was also something organized by you folks. When I received an email on May 17th inviting me to participate I registered and provided all the info requested. I reviewed the links, found a hotel room and printed the agenda. I did not notice anything about the need to register with someone else. Yesterday, I researched how to purchase T shirts and accidentally discovered that the registration I did with you meant nothing to the people organizing the actual trip.
    So, my suggestion is that you check with other people who might have no history about how this event is organized and make sure they did everything required (which is more than registering with the dealership). Thanks again for hosting one of the meeting points, and being a great bunch of employees. Marty

    Hi, Marty. I think there’s a misconception we need to clear up right off the bat. MINIs on Top is a completely separate event from anything organized by any dealership. You wrote the above like you intended it for the fine folks at MINI of Bedford, but we ain’t them; we are in fact “the people organizing the actual trip”. :-) That’s everything you see here at I’m sorry you were confused about the registration process, but it’s apparent that MoB has their own signup of some kind. MINIs on Top is a non-profit, volunteer-run grassroots event for and by MINI (and Mini!) enthusiasts. We’re not affiliated with any dealerships, although we do invite them to participate by attending or sponsoring some of our gatherings on the event weekend, and they often generously donate items to the raffle.

    We apologize for the confusion, and we’re excited you’re joining us for your first MoT, Marty!

  • Kathy and Bob

    At this point we are planning to meet at MoB . Will not be going up to the top but would like to meet up anyways. We are staying in the Lincoln area

  • Hi, Kathy and Bob. If you are attedning any portion of MINIs on Top (which is detailed on the 2013 Event Schedule page of this website), you need to register to attend the event using the link on our registration page. If you are only attending the event at MINI of Bedford on Friday, then you do not need to register for MINIs on Top, but shouls be sure to let MINI of Bedford know you will be there.

  • Kevin – I am pretty sure Brian and I will be attending the MoB meet-up again this year.
