22-03-20 MoPars in Methven 2020 Update – Sponsor & Shirts

The responsibility on making sure your MIM stuff is sorted is 100% yours – not ours !!

Hi all,

Ok, we’ve been a bit slack but with all that’s going on who can blame us. Will we be through Covid-19 by MIM time or will we still be operating under a host of restrictions ? Who knows but for now we are moving on “as if” everything is going to be OK. So by the end of March expect to see the Registration & Shirt info, and order forms in your inbox.

In the meantime, we’re happy to announce that Zig Zag Auto Bodies will be the sponsor of the screen stickers & rego cards for MIM. Thank you Carl.

And here’s the MIM shirt design, unique as always.

In the meantime – take care everyone and we’ll be in touch again soon.

29-03-20 MoPars in Methven 2020 Update

The responsibility on making sure your MIM stuff is sorted is 100% yours – not ours !!

Hi all,

We do sincerely hope that you, your families and friends are both safe and well at this time of great uncertainty both here in our country and around the world. Please take care.

OK, Carla, her support team and myself have discussed MIM and as mentioned in last weeks update we are moving on “as if” everything is going to be OK but with a couple of changes and a back up plan. We will make a final call in early August as to MIM going ahead or not.

Registration info & order forms will flow out to you over the next couple of days but without payment instructions. Payment instructions will go out in August once the decision is made. Please do not pay before then. 

The back up plan. We’ve had a couple of people make mention of hosting a M.i.t.S weekend in 2021 but at this point in time nobody has committed therefore we are listing 2021 as the back up year for MIM. 2021 of course will become available again should MIM happen this year.

We’ve talked with Methven Resort Hotel to pencil us in for 2021 just in case. i.e. If you’ve booked accommodation at Methven Resort Hotel for 2020, this is also penciled in for 2021.

Once again, take care folks.
Cheers
John, Carla & the MIM  team.

18-05-20 MoPars in Methven 2020 Update

The responsibility on making sure your MIM stuff is sorted is 100% yours – not ours !!

Hi all,

Due to the unfortunate circumstances that Covid-19 has created for many, far & wide, we are needing at this time to inform you all of the closure in two days’ time of the Methven Resort Hotel which was not only our main venue for MIM but also where a large number of us were staying.

We will be working through the options over the next week or so, so please bear with us as we do this and wait to hear from us with any further detail.

Back in touch soon.

Take care folks.
Cheers
John, Carla & the MIM  team.

21-06-20 MoPars in Methven 2020 Update

The responsibility on making sure your MIM stuff is sorted is 100% yours – not ours !!

Hi all,

We are still working on things to try & ensure that this years gathering still happens in Methven following the unfortunate closure of the Methven Resort Hotel which was not only our main venue for MIM but also where a large number of us were staying.

Some of the ducks are lining up quite nicely so please bear with us as we do this and wait to hear from us with further detail.

BUT for now we need to ask that everyone holds off registering & ordering meals for MIM as there’s a very high probability that there could be changes to the meals etc. and new forms to be sent out.   

Back in touch soon.

Take care folks.
Cheers
John, Carla & the MIM  team.
