A Message from Simon and Steve

Hello NorCal members,

We hope this note finds you safe, sane, and healthy.

The officers and directors of the club wanted to provide an update on our thinking for the club moving forward.

The past two runs — Highway 1 in March and the A-Mini-zing Race in April were cancelled due to the SIP order and general restrictions.

We’re also now cancelling the next two runs - Lake Tahoe in May and Sonoma Lavender Farms in June - as well. We plan to move these cancelled runs into 2021.

Looking farther out, while it’s unclear when the situation will allow us to gather again for runs. The July-Decembers runs will remain in place for now. These will be reviewed on a month by month basis and updates given.

Once state and local guidelines allow, we will look to get back on track with our scheduled runs. Obviously, we can expect changes to the protocol for the runs, especially in early phases.

We imagine social distancing will be required, masks will likely be required. Anyone showing any symptoms MUST stay away, and those who are at elevated risk should carefully consider whether or not to join in.

We will work out these details once we’re closer to getting back out on the road.

Given the disruption to the club events, we’ve decided to extend active members through to the end of 2021. Therefore, renewal fees for 2021 will be cancelled. Any new members that join in 2020 will also be good through the end of 2021.

In the meantime, there’s no reason we can’t remain active as a group.
If you wish to share your story on how you got involved with Minis, reach out to Michael Toibin, and he’ll get your story out.  Send to info@norcalminis.com

Early in June, we’re planning on a virtual town hall meeting via Zoom to give more details, allow people to ask any questions they have, and just say hi.

We’ll confirm precise timing once we’ve seen updates to guidelines from state and county officials, which we expect around the end of May.

In the meantime - please keep the passion for the MINI alive. We will get back to motoring as a club again soon!

Stay safe and take care,

Simon (President) & Steve (Vice President)
