MAY ZOOM MEMBER’S MEETING ON THE 18TH, MINI (HAPPY) HOUR 7PM, MEETING 7:30PM
You need to be a paid SAMOA member to attend but remember, because of the pandemic, dues have been extended to July of 2021 so don’t miss this opportunity to get involved and hang out with your Mini friends.
Is there anything going on for 2021? Odds are there is! Find out at the meeting.
You should receive an email a week or so before the meeting with the Zoom invitation which will give you access to meeting on the 18th. Your computer needs to be video and audio ready. 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, 5/11/2021

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 the cruise through Greenwood and Ballard will take place the last Saturday of every month from April through September!
Famous for upwards of 20 classic Minis at each years Greenwood Car Show, perhaps SAMOA should organize a platoon of Minis for CRUISE GREENWOOD. Let’s discuss at the May meeting! 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
