Hi folks,

As you know, the Irish Mini Owners Club is hosting the International Mini Meeting (IMM) next year in Piltown, Co. Kilkenny and for that reason we held our annual camping weekend there last year and will be doing so again next month, August 12-14, just so we get familiar with the place and the good people of Piltown get to know us.

As you'll also know, the camping weekend is run by a small number of club members for the benefit of all other club members. Nobody gets paid for their time and it's all for the good of the club. And if you think running our relatively small club weekend is a big task, next year the IMM is going to be BONKERS!!!!

Now there's a great bunch of club members already working away on the organisation of the IMM and all indications are that things are progressing nicely but ...... over the weekend of the IMM next year, we're going to need loads of club members to volunteer with all aspects of the event, just as we did when the IMOC ran the IMM in Bandon, Co. Cork in 1997.

Soooo.... to get you all ready for next year's IMM, we're looking for volunteers to help out with this year's Camping Weekend.

Here's what we need:

1. Arrange Food for the BBQ - JP Scallan

2. BBQ Supplies i.e. paper plates, sauces, bowls, etc - Martin & Mary Murphy, Peter Fowley

3. People to help cook BBQ - Martin & Mary Murphy, Peter Fowley, Chris Browne, Darren & Germaine Egan.

4. Arrange a Run for Saturday & something for those that don't do the run on the Saturday - JP Scallan

5. Arrange Entertainment for the Saturday Night - Milton Flynn, Jocelynn Kelly, & DJ Ken Pearson

6. Arrange Games - Ben & Ruby Pearson, Neil Kilbane (Rocker Cover racing), Audrey Kee

7. Arrange prizes for the games - Ben Pearson

8. To make sure the Toilets are clean - Darran Hutchinson

9. Someone to go and get toilet tissue & Bleach, etc - Darran Hutchinson

10. Someone to collect and empty Bins - Darran Egan, Paul Maloney, Milton Flynn.

11. Help on the Sunday Evening with a general tidy up - Darran Egan, Paul Maloney

12. Arrange something for the Kids to do on the Saturday/Sunday - Alan Ryan (games), Laurna Conboy (colouring competition)

13. Judge the entrants in the National Mini Day concours;

14. Man the gate for a few hours over the weekend - Laurna, Macker, Billy, Julie Maloney, Martin Murphy, Stuart, Jeff & Michelle Thornton, Audrey Kee

If you think you can help out with any of the above, we'd be delighted and it would make for an even more enjoyable event for everyone.

Send me a PM or give me a call if you're interested in helping out. It would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Billy

P.S. Get your Camping Weekend and National Mini Day entry forms in asap.

Hi Billy,

Add Paul to 10 and 11 (although not sure what time we'll have to leave on the Sunday).

I will do a stint (or two!) on the gate.

Julie

Folks,

The take-up has been great so far and we're well on our way to filling all the vacancies.

Would there be any of the mothers or older teenagers that would look after activities for the kids e.g. facepainting, colouring, games?

Thanks,

Billy

Alan,

That would be fantastic & if the weather is dodgy, we can set them up under a shelter.

Well done,

Billy
