PICNIC ON THE GREEN AND MEMBERSHIP MEETING
It’s been nearly a year and a half. Coming up on July 17 will be the first time SAMOA has met in person since the February, 2020 meeting. Don’t miss it! We will gather again at the Picnic on The Green, Steve and Kim Gay’s hugely popular annual Mini picnic in their park-like back yard.
We would love to see your Mini but we’d love to see you even more so please join in the fun even if your Mini won’t be able to.
Go to the menu above and NEXT EVENTS for more details, a schedule and directions.
You should receive an email reminder a few days before this event. If you don’t receive your invite give me a call. If you don’t think you are a paid member give Toby a call. Our numbers are at the bottom of this home page. -Ed Sauer, secretary, editor, 6/19/2021

Greenwood Car Show lives on as a monthly cruise
The event lives on but due to the covid pandemic, the format has been changed from a car show to a show-car cruise and POKER RUN on June 26. Famous for a city block full of classic Minis at each years Greenwood Car Show, perhaps SAMOA should organize a platoon of Minis for CRUISE GREENWOOD. https://www.greenwoodcarshow.com
A PAUSE IN CLUB MEMBERSHIP
We are all in this for the long haul. As more Mini events are cancelled or postponed the question eventually came 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?”
Good question so until at least May of 2021 your membership will continue. At that time dues can be deposited in the club coffers and your membership will be good for a year and as soon as SAMOA can adjust to the new normal, we will notify members of the plans for upcoming events. Keep in touch, hang in there, and above all stay safe. -Toby May, president, membership maven, 1/31/2021
