What we're about

Carlisle MINI Motoring Club was formed in Carlisle Pennsylvania by Santiago Gabela and his wife Lois in 2006. Their first attempt to set up the club and develop an active membership was a slow process. Over the years our little (MINI) club has grown. We now have more than 450 members. One imperative is a love of MINIs. What is a Carlisle MINI Motoring Club member? Whatever YOU want it to be! Our passion for our MINIs is the singular common ground that we all share, aside from that we are all individuals with many other varied interests. We are a loose knit bunch of MINIacs and that's the way we like it! Join us at one of our events...some large...some small, but all with a focus on MINIs and having fun. Now MOTOR ON!

MOTD 2023

Needs a location

Registration for this year's Minis on the Dragon opens on July 20. You can learn about the event by checking this link: https://www.minisonthedragon.com/
I will post more details as I get some idea of what interest there is on attending.
My initial thoughts are to drive to Marion, VA the first day, then do the Back of the Dragon (VA 16) and then head to North Carolina for the event.

Road Trip! Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Ford Museum, and Mini on the Mack 2023

Are you ready for an EPIC Mini road trip? Start planning now for a week long Carlisle Mini extravaganza.
On Monday, July 31, 2023 the adventure starts, meeting in Carlisle and then cruising the roads less traveled to exciting Cleveland, Ohio. Why, you might think? So Tuesday we can tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Wednesday morning we will drive to Detroit Michigan and then spend the afternoon on the incredible Ford Rouge Factory Tour. We will spend all day Thursday at the Henry Ford Museum of Innovation, well, as much as we can see in one day! Friday will be a scenic drive through the Michigan countryside to Mackinaw City/St Ignace to check in for Mini on the Mack 2023. Saturday is the big event and the associated festivities.
Several options from here - an easy two day drive back home to PA on the interstate (750 miles, +/- 12 hrs), a longer two day drive avoiding highways (780 miles, +/- 17 hrs) or an easy three day drive on the Trans Canada Highway and upstate NY (950 miles, +/- 19 hours), (you will need a passport).
