MDU2021 December Update

Since our last update, planning for Minis DownUnder 2021 has continued. Our subcommittee members are involved in discussions with Mini related businesses about their agreed or potential involvement in our event. At this stage we have 3 Gold, 2 Silver and a few other interested businesses interested. If you know any business either mini related or selling merchandise who would like to be involved, then please don’t hesitate to let us know.

I have been in contact with the editor of Mini World magazine and provided event details including a few photos for an article in the January 2021 edition of the magazine so keep an eye out for that. The planning sub-committee met at Rosehill Gardens on November 9th to do a photo shoot for the Mini World and other promotional articles. Some of those photos are throughout the December magazine. We are continuing discussions with a MINI Garage for them to be a major sponsor and display a number of their MINIs on the day. I had a planning meeting with the Rosehill Gardens Event’s manager where we discussed the finer details of our proposed layout and logistics to get all of our Minis in and out in a timely manner on the weekend of the event. He also confirmed a few items re the location and requirements of the cars. Please note: We are not required to have locking fuel caps but must remove the ignition keys and leave with event management.

Entries are arriving at a steady pace with a variety of some great looking Minis, Classic and New. Following a request, we have changed the early entry cut off from Jan 1 to Feb 1. We are also taking entries from Mini related cars, Morris 1100, Morris Minor. Entry details and an application form are available inside the December magazine and an online version with payment links is on this website.

We are investigating an option for dinner at a local club on Saturday night and I have now posted details of local accommodation options on our website.

Continuing to be concerned about Covid-19 we still have everything crossed so that at least suppression of Covid-19 continues into early next year before the vaccine arrives.
