Our first mini meet at Europes largest mini showroom, Cooper Reading. Fantastic day which started with cars arriving from 10am. Around 60 cars, mostly modern and one classic attended.
We started the day with coffee and pastries in the sun whilst lots of cleaning and prep for the Best In Show competition began. We had Tours of the dealership and competitions for charity such as, how many balloons in one MINI.
Prior to a short run out around reading, bacon sandwiches were served which were demolished in seconds, people built up a good appetite with all the cleaning.
The run out was taken up by 10 or so cars although reading traffic lights caused a few problems but everyone arrived back for afternoon tea and cakes and the anticipated prize giving.
Lots of chatter, meeting with MINI friends/family lots of laughter and revving. What a great day out and everyone was welcome including the dogs that came looking forward to our next one in march to celebrate our first birthday.
