July meeting and Summer picnic
The traditional July SAMOA members meeting and picnic at Steve and Kim Gay’s house has been at least postponed due to you know what. King County will not be granted “phase 3” status for some time yet. From Steve:
A PAUSE IN CLUB MEMBERSHIP
We are all in this for the long haul. As more Mini events are being cancelled and/or postponed, the question eventually comes up, “What exactly is a car club member supposed to do when there aren’t any options for getting together as a club. No drives, events or even meetings? Why even be a club member?”
The good news is that SAMOA isn’t in any danger of fading into the sunset. As long as there are Minis being restored, maintained and driven by our special brand of crazy car nuts, there will always be a club for us. The silver lining to being shut-in like this is that club expenses have dropped considerably. On that note, we would like to extend a moratorium on club dues from all of our members (Perhaps use the savings for that part you’ve been meaning to get for your Mini).
From now until May of 2021 your membership will continue. At that time membership dues can be deposited to the club coffers and your membership will be good for a year. As soon as SAMOA can adjust to a new normal, we will notify membership of our plans for upcoming events. Keep in touch, hang in there, and above all, stay safe. -Toby May, Vice President and Membership Chair and the 2020 SAMOA Club Officers, 5/14/2020
Victoria Mini Meet West 2020 Cancelled
from Mike Smith, Victoria Mini Club
The MMW2020 Organizing Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the MMW2020 event in Victoria BC this year. We do not make this decision lightly, but we realize that protecting the health of our Mini friends and their families, as well as our sponsors and partners is a higher priority than holding the meet.
We have worked with all our venues and the other Mini clubs with the intent of moving the event to the same time next year in beautiful Victoria, BC. Stay tuned for future updates. -Mike Smith, MMW2020 Organizing Committee (For more details go to MENU/NEXT EVENTS)
