Hello {{name}}!

....and relax!

September was a huge month for WCM, starting with the IOW Adventure. Did you join us on the island? We'd love to see your pictures so remember to share them on the Facebook page if you can.

We were blessed with glorious weather and a great selection of cars. Last count was around 160 Minis, double last years numbers. Thanks to the Isle of Wight Mini Owners for their help marshaling and leading the impromptu run out to The Needles. If you didn't get a chance to drive the Military Road you'll have to head over next year, it's a fantastic piece of tarmac with amazing views over the south of the island.

We hope you all had a great weekend and well done to all of our raffle and pride of ownership winners, we hope you enjoy your prizes.

As if the IOW Adventure wasn't enough only a couple of weeks later we were at Castle Combe for the Mini Action Day with Mini Sport. This was a special event as it was our largest ever stand (60 cars!) with our own track session

Unfortunately the weather wasn't with us this year but for the IMM volunteers joining us it was like a home-from-home. Despite the rain the track session was a real hit. For many it was their first time around the circuit and it certainly wasn't in 'easy mode' however many are already planning to head out again next year.

A few stats for the day - we munched through over 200 bread rolls, 17kgs of sausages, bacon and burgers, 2 pans of curry and drank our way through an entire box of tea bags. And keeping everyone fed and watered, the WCM catering team, this year a two man crew - massive thanks to Ian and Matt J.

We're not done with 2019 just yet though, next up is our October club meet on the 12/10 (3pm) at The Blathwayt Arms (just outside Bath Racecourse, details below). There will be another club meet in November but we've not picked a venue for that just yet, we'll update you again a bit nearer the date.

While it's a little early, we're also planning the WCM Christmas Meet. It will be held at the Masons Arms in Bristol on 14/12. If you want to join us you'll need to give us your food choices. The menus are available here (PDF) - either drop us a message on Facebook or reply to this email.

And finally! It's getting chilly already (don't tell anyone but I've had the heating on for a bit), so it's time to stock up on WCM winter merch. If there's anything you'd like, give us a shout - hats, coats, umbrellas and much more.

As always, if you have any suggestions, ideas or issues, let us know.
