Annual Meeting & Mt. Hamilton Run - Sunday September 18, 2022


Annual Meeting and Run for Absent Friends & Family To Mt. Hamilton

Your Hosts For This Event: 

Simon and Nikki Tildesley

Join the club for its annual Absent Friends run followed by the clubs annual meeting and lunch. On this run we remember our past members and friends who are no longer with us by keeping the spirit of driving our fun cars on some great roads. 

We will meet in Alum Rock and head up the twisties to the Lick Observatory at Mt Hamilton. If the parking lot at the observatory is open we will stop for a few photos. 

After that we will head down the mountain again and continue on the twisties towards the Junction in the Livermore valley. This is a point we will regroup if needed. Once grouped back together we will continue down Mines Rd towards Livermore.

Our final destination being the Highland Oaks Cabana Club in Pleasanton where club members will have prepared a lunch for everyone to enjoy whilst we host the annual meeting.

NOTE: as these roads are enjoyable for those who really like to 'drive' their MINI's - we will likely split the group in two. One group for a more spirited drive - the other for those who like to take the pace more leisurely.

We will also be raising much needed funds for two of our selected charities:

Second Harvest of Silicon Valley

This is a run for NorCal MINIS PAID members only.
