Join Oregon Mini Society as we host Mini Meet West 2018 in The Columbia River Gorge. Mini Meet West is the largest and longest-running annual gathering of fans of the classic Mini in North America. All classic Minis and enthusiast are encouraged to attend (including variants such as Mini-based Wolseley, Rileys, Innocenti, ADO16 and variants derived from the classic Mini ) and the modern BMW MINI that is currently in production. A group of West Coast clubs held the first U.S. Mini Meet in Reno, Nevada back in 1973. There were 43 paid registrations at the first meet. Eventually, the Meet became known as the 1st Mini Meet West after the startup of the Mini Meet East events in 1975.
