AMVIV8 Property Tours, 6/27

We had a rather productive evening reviewing several hotel/casino proposals and we’ve narrowed our selection down quite a bit. This Sunday, 6/27, we are meeting on the top floor of the South Point garage – we plan to walk the property as a group (without hotel staff accompaniment) and judge its suitability for next year’s event. After South Point, we will be touring four other properties – The Rio, Harrah’s, The Stratosphere, and The Riviera.

If you have time on Sunday afternoon and would like to walk these properties with us – we’ll meet you on the rooftop of South Point’s parking garage at 3pm.

Sandy Valley Run AND Exotic Car Showcase Saturday 6/26

This Saturday we have a fun diversion for anyone interested in a run, some lunch and some exotic cars.

Our plan is to meet at Cars and Coffee (9500 S Eastern Ave) at 8:30 Saturday morning. For those of you that don’t know, Cars and Coffee™ Las Vegas launched June 14th, 2008. The first show had over 250 cars and promises to grow as word of the show spreads throughout the community. Cars and Coffee™ Las Vegas is a weekly Saturday morning gathering of auto enthusiasts from 7:00am - 10:00am where hundreds of proud drivers from the Las Vegas area and beyond will congregate to kick tires and have a cup of coffee. There will be something for everyone to enjoy; classics, exotics, concepts, hotrods, motorcycles and motor-sport. And it’s all free, minus the coffee of course. Here’s a link for directions.

From Cars and Coffee we will take a ride up the I-15 and head West at Jean through the desert (I believe there may be some twisties involved) to Sandy Valley, Nevada – roughly 45 miles from Las Vegas. We’ll take in the local sites and from there head back to Vegas and onward toward Summerlin. The folks of Cars and Coffee have invited us to an Exotic Car Showcase “Poolside” at Red Rock Casino – the e-vite follows below. I RSVP’d for myself, but if you think you’re going please follow the link below and RSVP to the e-vite. We can stop for lunch before the show – Red Rock Casino has opened a new Yard House Restaurant.

Here’s a map and directions for the trip

We hope to see you there!

Best Mini Cooper at the Tustin Car Show

Many thanks to Seichi, Larry and Mo for making the trip with me from Vegas to Tustin, CA, for the All Mini Car Show. I heard there were a little more than 100 cars at the event, lots of raffle tickets were sold and many household goods were donated to benefit The Sheephold - a local charity. To top off the day, our lucky SCMC Motorer Mo Ghassedi won Best Mini Cooper. Thanks for a great day!!

Overnight Trip to Tustin, CA - All MINI/Mini Car Show Fri Jun 11th

This is just a reminder about the overnight trip to Tustin, CA for the 3rd Annual All MINI car show at The Enderle Center, 14081 Yorba St, in Tustin, CA. The show runs Saturday 8:00am to 12:30 . The car show if you’d like to enter your car is $10, to benefit The Sheepfold — Shelter, refuge, and a new beginning for abused women and their children. If you have not pre-registered for the show and would like to enter your car, you can pay the fee at the event. Here is a link to the event flyer.

We found lodging in nearby Irvine at the Candlewood Suites at 16150 Sand Canyon Avenue - 1 800-980-6438

Since this is a weekday and we’ve all got different schedules – we’ll just meet down at the hotel in Irvine. I am actually heading out at noon on Friday, and can meet people at Target on Blue Diamond if anyone would like to drive down together. We’re working to organize dinner with some local Mini Club folks that evening. Next morning we can round up, and head to the show – then have lunch with the Club there and head back.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Hope to see you Friday!!!
