More from Mike Smith, as of March 31, 2020
For MMW2020 in Victoria, all refunds have gone out to those of you that did not tell us to hold for next year.  Thank you to the 35% of the Enthusiasts and Participants that have committed to next year, as well as all the Sponsors that have committed as well.
MMW2021 will be held in Victoria next year June 27 to June 30, 2021, using all the same venues and the same host hotel. We are in the process up updating the website, registration and the hotel block booking for all this.
Any questions please let me know.  -Mike Smith, Victoria Mini Club

Pre-Meet in Port Angeles still on for  June 28, 2020

from Greg Birch, SAMOA


I’m throwing open all our doors for SAMOA the day before Mini Meet West.  Call it PRE-MEET ON THE PENNINSULA.

On Sunday June 28 I will open the shop, a place with spares,  a warm fire and lots of tools to prepare for the run ahead.  My neighbor has a lift if necessary and anyone with a Mini that would like detailing or need some minor mechanicals is welcome to come and hang out.  Along with anyone else who’d like to help, watch or otherwise enjoy.

We will have a barbecue going with probably salmon, drinks and basic Costco sides.

It’s at 383 N Bagley creek Road, just off Hwy 101 between Sequim and Port Angeles. It is on a gravel road so drive slow and be careful.

If things get settled and there are enough mini’s interested we can do a short evening run leaving around 5-6pm and visit some highlights around the peninsula,  returning in two hours around 8pm.  This should allow for good light and photos.  This is all WEATHER PERMITTING of course.

Near-by Lake Sutherland.

For accommodations in or near Port Angeles I recommend:

Log Cabin Resort, 360-928-3325, 3183 E Beach Rd

Olympic Lodge 360-452-2993, 140 S Del Guzzi Dr

Port Angeles Inn, 360-452-9285, 111 E 2nd St  (Port Angeles Inn is the best bang for the buck)

Red Lion Hotel, 360-452-9215, 221 N Lincoln St

Also, room for camping and a few rooms available at the Birch estate.  If interested, contact Greg, canine (at)

Also there is a new hotel being built at 7 Cedars Casino opening mid-June that will probably be overlooked by many travelers.   The casino has lodging, entertainment, fuel, food and drinks.
