Classic Minis United - APRIL 6-9 2022 - Wytheville Va
« on: June 07, 2021, 08:19:06 AM »
Greetings!

Today I had a friend inquire to me about the NEXT CMU event =  April  6-9  - Wytheville VA.

   HOWEVER , I was clueless =  the email from Mike G  went right into my Spam box .  Please check yours,   I kind of wanted to ask here if others within the club listing had the same happen. I'm letting Mike G know it happened to me.

CMU Website is being updated with info: - Same setup / style of event planned, but can at least get on the ideas for next year!

Here is also the email included here.
 ________________________________________________________________________________________
Dear CMU members,

I hope everybody is doing well and made it through this nightmare safely! We are hopefully nearing the final stages, thanks to the vaccine. There has been no need to email the club since the Mini 60 as we kept moving the next event forward. With the vaccine out and working, we can now announce our next BIG event. How big?!?! Well, considering everybody will have been staring at their Minis for about 2 years, and that the club has grown by about 100 members (Welcome new members!) just within a short days drive of the event, we hope to have a record attendance! We will be returning to our favorite KOA in Wytheville, VA on April 6th-9th. Save the dates, and if you are going to stay at the KOA, book your spot ASAP. I will email everybody when the website is updated with the event and the host hotel is set. This email is just to get the date out and book up the KOA before others take the spots. Thanks to Covid, a lot of people have gone outdoors and campgrounds fill up fast way in advance, so book soon.

The title of this event is ReUnited. It will be an amazing reunion as it will be GREAT to see everybody again! As with all of our events, it will be three days of fun mountain drives with fun things to do at night at the KOA. It will all be listed on the website. But if you like driving your Mini, like mountains and twisty roads, like hanging out around a campfire, like being around the best group of Mini peeps, then start your planning now.

Note, as we obviously have no idea now of the virus conditions next April, we will be following the CDC guidelines. As people will be coming from many States, that will be considered as well. We will be as safe as possible. Be aware, that could include mandatory vaccinations and masks, but we won't know until it's close to April. Hopefully life will be back to normal by then!!!!!!

To book the KOA (Do it soon!) call 276-228-2601. Tell them it's for the Mini event. If there is any confusion, ask for Allyson, she's awesome. Here is the website: https://koa.com/campgrounds/wytheville

I did not get the email either, and I checked my spam filter and files to make sure - nothing there.

Looking at those prices - that's per night?

Seems pretty high................just sayin.

I'm ready to get my CMU fix again, so I'll have it on my calendar.

I got the email this morning just fine, it did not end up in my spam mail.

I think those prices are for the total not per night, based on "The deposit equals one night. The total is based on 4 nights," So basically if I understand it correctly the numbers in the ( ) would basically be the per night cost. Which if you have ever booked a camping spot in a popular camp ground those numbers seem pretty close to what I would expect. You can darn near get a cheap hotel room for what you can get a campsite for in some places.

OK, I was looking at tent spots for $128 a night and thinking that seemed a little extreme.....I'll stay at the host hotel again like I did last time, although this KOA is one of the biggest, nicest ones, especially if you're bringing kids along.

Yeah $128 a night for a tent spot would be a little extreme to say the least!

I got my email OK.
I booked an RV spot and will take the Toy Hauler with a Mini inside.
They expanded the site and put 4 or 5 more cabins in plus down behind the metal building they put some larger RV spots with paved patios.
Its nice to use the campground and be right there but even with the CMU discount can be expensive unless you share a cabin, if Mike G uses the same Hotels they are both down the street and close by.
With Covid over the last 18 months RV sales along with boat sales have gone through the roof and campground prices have too.

The CMU website has been updated with the event. It's complete minus registration that we will do in a couple of months. Go to www.classicminis.org

The KOA prices noted are for 4 nights, not one. The deposit is the one night price. You can stay as many nights as you want at that price, you don't have to stay/pay for all four.

See ya in April!!!!
