WELCOME TO MINI2, Jeff!
Thanks for posting the group's plans!
Just as an FYI to the group, it is about 5 hours (+/-) between Bar Harbor and the Loon Lot in Lincoln, NH. The Loon Lot is where the Saturday morning MINIsOnTop festivities get started. At noon, the three scenic drives and the Most Excellent DS'Lympics (MINI/Mini Gymkhana) begin. Later in the afternoon (4:00-4:30) folks arrive at the Mt. Washington Auto Road for the festivities under the Big Top.
So, MINIs/Minis in BH will need to be on the road by 7:00 am to make it to the Loon Lot by 12:00 noon. The latest any MINIsOnTop attendee should leave BH is 11:30 am in order to be at the Mt. Washington Auto Road by 4:30 pm.
Mobile phone signals are spotty in the White Mountains but I will email you my mobile phone number so you (and/or the group) can try to reach us when you leave BH.
Also, make sure anyone who is attending MINIsOnTop gets their registration in pronto and arranges for lodging quickly. Go to the MINIsOnTop
website for lodging info.
