We are announcing the return of the Friday morning gathering at Yankee Candle in South Deerfield, MA on June 21 for those folks coming from western MA, western CT, and NY. The Yankee Candle caravan has long been a tradition for many MINIs On Top attendees and offers a chance to socialize, shop, and create a large “pod” of MINIs/Minis traveling together to the White Mountains.
Again this year we will leave the Yankee Candle lot at 11:00 am and travel to Bedford, NH to meet-up with the Boston Caravan at the MINI of Bedford facility.
MINIs/Minis will begin to arrive at Yankee Candle at 9:00 am for a 10:30 am route meeting and then an 11:00 am departure for MINI of Bedford. Travel time to MoB should be a little over two hours. The caravan will not stop en-route, so make sure your MINI’s tank is full and that your own tank is not. We should arrive at MoB around 1:00 pm.
From Bedford, NH, the combined Yankee Candle and Boston caravans will depart about 2:00 pm with an anticipated arrival at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel around 4:30 pm. While most of the combined caravan will be taking the direct route to Attitash, you are free to devise your own routes from MoB to Attitash and hoodwink other folks into following you!
Registration has closed.
