For those of you headed to MINIs On Top on Friday, June 17th, there are two different MINI/Mini caravans to the new MINI of Bedford (just South of Manchester, NH). From there we’ll head to the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel. As in past years, we’ll have caravans from the West (the Yankee Candle) and Eastish (the Metro Boston Area), but we are not rallying at Area 51!
To celebrate the near-opening of the new dealership, MINI of Bedford – through the never-ending generosity of MoP’s Lori Connolly – will be hosting a MINIs On Top Feeder Event across from their new facility. Why not AT the actual facility? Well, it’s still in the process of being built!
The plan is for the Boston Feeder Caravan and the Yankee Candle Feeder Caravan to converge at the parking lot across from the new MoB facility at 1:00 pm on Friday, June 17. Lori Connolly will be meeting us at the lot with her welcoming smile and goodie bags for all!
We will stay at MoB until about 2:00 pm then depart for a non-stop drive up I-93 to the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel (~2.5 hours). Note that we will not plan to stop at Area 51 as we have done in other years, although arrangements will be made to do a “rolling grab” of folks from there as we pass by. If you’re planning on meeting at Area 51, you’ll find more info on the Area 51 page.
Since the new MoB is still under construction, rest room facilities will be accessed by a short walk to the Dunkin’ Donuts right next door. Also, there are a number of gas stations along S. River Rd so you can fill-up before the 2:00 pm departure.
In preparation for this event, Lori has requested that we provide a head count for the Fantastic MoT/MoB Feeder Event. If you’re going to be on the Yankee Candle or Boston Area caravans, please leave a comment on the appropriate page, or email Theo Matthias or Kevin Minghella, respectively. If you’re skipping the caravan but still want to join in the excitement at MINI of Bedford leave a comment below or email one of the guys.
Make sure you specify:
- how many people will be in your MINI
- which Caravan you will be joining or whether you will be arriving on your own.
