June 24 member’s meeting at Greenwood Car Show!

Not just another SAMOA member’s meeting, this one’s going to be in conjunction with the Greenwood Car Show. Yes, that means you’ll need to enter the show to go the the June meeting. We’ll have the meeting in the morning before the masses arrive. To enter the car show go to their website and do it now!

Speaking of masses, the Minis are always a major hit at the Greenwood Car Show. SAMOA has been attending the show since nearly the beginning and we’ve had as many as 20 Minis on display.


That’s just the beginning of a couple of months full of Mini activity. First and foremost it’s Mini Meet West in Santa Maria, California happening June 26 through 29. Lots of SAMOA planning going on by those going to this event. Hosted by MOA-San Francisco with SAMOA’s efforts coordinated by MOA-SF transplant and SAMOA member Dave Anderson. Time to get on board if you’re going. Details –

For all SAMOA members – Have you ever noticed a Mini that you don’t recognize parked on the street or in a lot and wanted to leave a note about SAMOA? Or have you ever been approached by someone who is fascinated by your Mini and wants to know more?

SAMOA now has business cards for all paid members to keep in their car(s) for just such occasions. There is plenty of room on the back of the card to leave your name and number or just a little greeting. Or leave it blank if you’re in a mysterious mood. Send an email or text to me and I’ll see that you get a small quantity of cards. -Ed Sauer, secretary, 1/20/2022



It’s time to renew your dues. This club doesn’t just run on its good looks you know. A new membership renewal procedure is in effect and if you don’t understand. If you aren’t sure if you do or don’t need to renew your dues, you probably do. Call me, my number is listed below. It’s painless as a covid shot. -Toby May, president, membership maven, 1/31/2021
