Maybe you hear that 2019 is the 60th anniversary of Mini. While Minnesota United MINIs (M.U.M.) has great events throughout the year, there are many national events held at various locations. Some will be doing special things for this anniversary year.
Some 2019 events are listed below. Some M.U.M. members have participated in these events in the past.
MINIs ON The Dragon (MOTD) will be held May 1 to 5, 2019. MOTD started out as a simple get together to drive a stretch of road. This event is in part named after the legendary section of US 129 known as “The Dragon” which runs from North Carolina to Tennessee and has 318 curves in 11 miles. Now you can add 600 to 1000 fellow MINIacs and you have a great time. There are many drives and events in the breathtaking mountains of North Carolina on US 129 and other roads in the area.
