Ok we’ve been given permission to use the cricket club function room for Thursday night’s meet, its at the same place we had the Agm. Grange Road, Castletown, Sunderland, SR5 3EP, just off the A1231 behind the BP garage.
Well boys and girls its that time of year for the North East Mini Club to provide all the North Eastern and beyond’s mini owning and loving community with the annual show to celebrate all that is mini!
This Sunday the 26th August 2012 at Seaburn recreational showground the gates will be open from 9am for traders and exhibitors to set up and the general public will be able to gain access from 10am.
We would like to also extend an invitation to any classic or custom car owners who would also like to exhibit their vehicles, it doesn’t have to be all minis!
£5 for each car including all passengers except clubs with ten cars or more (discounted to £3 per club car).
This year the weather has a lot to answer for with so many of the top mini shows and other car shows cancelled due to heavy rain. But that didn’t stop MITP 2012 from going ahead, and as ever what a weekend!
The cancelled events from earlier in the year must have given everyone withdrawal symptoms from the mini show scene and everyone seemed to be at Santa Pod for MITP. The camping field filled to capacity very quickly and the organisers were forced to let campers spill over into the show parking fields.
Once the NEMC base camp had been set for the weekend it was time for the expedition to the BAR! for singing, dancing, Bull riding! and much more merry making. How I love MITP!
Can’t wait till next year! Roll on 2013.
Hi Guys, firstly I must apologise for the lack of updates on the main page. what with forum, facebook, Minimania, events and runs the main page got left till last.
Well after the last time the page was updated we’ve had the chocolate run to Thornton le dale.
Which saw some fantastic scenery with a winter feel.
We then had a run out with the Kendal Mini Club over to the lakes and had a brilliant day with some fantastic weather.
and some lovely views
of Wrynose Pass and Hardknott Pass.
Followed at the other side by the warmest of welcomes from the staff at the Woolpack Inn at Boot in Eskdale.
There’s more to come watch this space!
As we do every time we attend the Bingley Hall event a brilliant time was had by all. A bond of friendship was made across the Pennines with our neighbours Kendal Mini Club who helped in the consumption of copious amounts of Stella in The Shirehorse Pub.
The usual show and shine was outstanding and displays from lots of clubs on the upper floor were great.
Traders though I think make this venue the real draw for the crowds with some excellent bargains to be had.
The auto jumble being most peoples first port of call on getting into the venue as this is probably where most of the deals were made during the day, just trying to negotiate around the stalls you couldn’t get near half the goods and patience is a must when it’s that busy.
Some fantastic examples of the mini variants on display.
A chalk mini for leaving your message, and we left our mark!
And finally this Clubman estate hearse won car of the show.
