It was a beautiful but cold Sunday, that 23rd of January 2000.
An almost perfect day to go to the STV.
Although the event itself is for testing your ability to control your Mini, lots of people just attend to hang out with fellow Miniacs.
There are usually also a number of Mini-listers around and
this time was no different.
I got there a bit late (so what else is new :) and found some of the Miniacs already turning blue because of the wind and the cold.
But we hung out for a while anyway, talking about Mini-bits and non-Mini-bits, warmed by coffee and good clothing :)
Here is a selection of the Mini's that attended, courtesy of
I don't recognize too many of them. Just the Blue 6 wheeler Pickup from my Mini-shop and the M.I.N.I. List sticker...

As it was a bit too cold for my liking, I didn't hang around
to long and after a couple of hours set of to the nice and
comfortable warmth of a friends place.
I heard that prizes were given and good-byes were said... Till the next meeting, be it a STV or otherwise.
