Do you live in upstate New York or the surrounding area and own a MINI, thinking about buying one, or just want to be around people who own them? (haha) Great. Simply begin attending the monthly meetings and you’ll soon blend right in.
If you want to stay abreast of the latest developments, receive meeting reminders and other useful info, sign up to receive occasional e-mails from MPG. We promise not to spam you. You can also keep up to date via our group on the Facebook.
That’ll be the first Tuesday of every month at the Albany Pump Station, beginning at 7:15 p.m., usually behind the bar in front of the massive fireplace (when it’s cold and Neil is feeling charitable, it’ll be on). Sometimes with a bigger crowd we’ll head upstairs. Arrive ready to swap MINI stories with peers, discuss past events, and plot future ones. We usually meet for drinks (first one is on the house) but feel free to dine.
The MINI Performance Group is an off-shoot of Patroon BMW Club of America, so membership with Patroon really seals the deal. Membership is now a formal requirement to participate in events for mysterious liability reasons. It also allows you to participate in Patroon track days, receive the national Roundel magazine and local Half Moon newsletter, and grants access to a variety of very legitimate discounts including auto insurance and cell phone plans.
Patroon meetings are the second Wednesday of the month at the German-American Club of Albany in Colonie, NY, at 32 Cherry Street. Start time is 6:30 p.m.
