It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. It’s time to kick off the 2017 Motoring Season with the Annual Member Meeting!

Come see what we have in store for you this year and meet fellow MINIacs! New to PhillyMINI? This is a great way to meet your fellow Motorers and find out what we are all about!

2017 Memberships are NOW ON SALE. Click HERE to begin the renewal process or to sign up for a new membership! If you complete the process before March 20th, you can pick up your Member Kit from MoM at the Meeting.

You must RSVP for this event. In the event that we meet the 70 person head count per session for this event, a waiting list will be created.

WHEN: Sunday, March 26th, 2017
First Session: 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Second Session:  3:00pm to 5:00pm
WHERE: Victory Brewing, 420 Acorn Road, Downingtown (map)
PARKING: Free Parking!

COST: The PhillyMINI elves are still negotiating and trying very hard to keep the cost to a minimum, but Victory’s prices have gone up a tad. To be consistent with the well received food selections from previous years, it may be $28 per person ($12.50 for children under 12). Please come prepared to pay with cash. A buffet lunch is included, along with soft drinks.

Hostesses will accept orders from the cash bar. Victory has an excellent selection of fine ales, which can be purchased from your hostess. PhillyMINI asks that you designate a Motorist at all times.

RSVP FOR ONLY ONE SESSION! Note: If you rsvp for both sessions, you will be required to pay for both sessions ($28 x 2).


RSVP First Session: 12pm to 2pm Here

What is a Rally?  What’s an FRS Radio?  What’s a LeMans Start?

Do I want to drive in the front/middle/back of the pack?  How do I read a route sheet? What does PB4UGO mean?

Brush off winter and start our motoring season with a NewBee Rally Primer!

If you are planning on joining PhillyMINI, joined PhillyMINI toward the end of last season, or you’ve been a member for a while but feel like you’re missing out on some basics, this is the event for you!

We’ll take you on a short rally where seasoned rallyers will be on hand to help you learn what you need to know.  From using the radio to safely navigating the rallying road, this is your chance to ask any question you’d like in an informal rally and Q&A setting.

When:  Saturday, March 18, 2017
Meet:  10 am

Start Location:  Starbucks, Kennett Square [MAP]
879 E Baltimore Pike
Kennett Square, PA

End Location:  World of Beer  [MAP]
102 Main Street #100
Exton, PA  19341

Cost:  There is no cost to attend the event but you will have to pay for lunch.  Cash always makes the process a little easier.

Notes:  Any attendee who does not have a valid 2016 membership will have to sign a liability waiver.  You can fuel up at a Wawa near the start point.  The rally starts at Starbucks, so you can grab a cup of coffee if you’d like!

What to bring:

  • An FRS radio, if you have one.  We’ll lend you one if you don’t.
  • A navigator/co-driver, if you have one or want to bring one
  • Cash for lunch
  • At least 1/2 tank of gas
  • Questions and a sense of adventure

Please be sure to tell us if you are staying for lunch and how many in your party.  The restaurant needs an exact headcount to coordinate seating.
