New MINI owner and new to ssmini

I think i might have all ready posted but cant remember so her i am. I am in Kitsap County, I have a 2013 MINI Clubman S, pepper white and black. Still contemplating her full name. She is a kick to drive and handles great on dry and wet conditions, but snow how ever was not a good driving experience. Maybe that was cause there was 6+ inches at my place and it was very slushy. Tires might not be great for snow either. Anyway, looking forward to many events to attend as we move into 2013. I did attend the Christmas party at Northwest MINI and had a lot of fun....Jetmoe

Welcome! MINIs are generally great in snow, but a bit depends on the tires you're using. Hope to see you at an event soon!

Kitsap Members

So that is 3 of us. Any more?

I would suggest Whiskey Gulch Coffee Company as a place for a few cars (parking is pretty limited). Food is good and the coffee is great, as is the view.

If you arrange a weekend meet & greet in PO or somewhere else on the penisula, you may get some takers from those of us in Pierce & Thurston counties as well - you never know.

Whiskey Gulch is right next to the Annapolis ferry dock, between Retsil Veterans Home and KFC. Annapolis is really the location, on the waterfront. I will try to find out when the Yoga Studio next door is NOT having a class and try to set something up for that time. They seem to suck up all the parking.

That sounds great! We like the Port Orchard area and don't get there too often.

http://whiskeygulchcoffee.comToday I found out that on weekends the Kitsap Transit parking lot next door to Whiskey Gulch is open to public parking for no charge, at least that was the story from Whiskey Gulch Coffee Company.

So pick a Saturday or a Sunday that works for you all and we can meet there. I am not sure about a drive afterwards. I know that a coffee and a sandwich or munchies there and a drive around to Southworth then up 16 to 3 and out to Belfair and then on to Union is always nice and ending up at the Alderbrook Resort, or across the road at Robinhood(great food but a bit spendy).

Suggestions?

Sounds like fun. Lets get something on the calendar. It's been far to long since I crossed the narrows bridge.

This sounds great!

Would February 9th or 10th work out for you? We could even do a pre-run from the Tacoma area to Whiskey Gultch and then a post-run to Belfair/Union.

Feb 9 or 10 work for us.

If you all are coming from Olympia area then going back through Shelton would make sense so you did not have to pay a Toll or retrace your steps

Once we decide on a day and a time to meet then I will give the facilities the particulars of how many people and approximately when we will get there.

A thought would be for a 10:00 meet at Whiskey Gultch and then the long way around, through Manchester, Southworth, 16 to 3 to Belfair and on to Union/Alderbrook area. I will try to pre-drive that loop soon so I can get a time frame.
