Interested in attending a Mini in 2020? Minis are typically held on a weekend during April-July. Watch the Mini Christmas Expos forum to receive alerts (and emails) when planning and discussion begins.
You may want to include some location details in your profile so people know where in oz you are. Finding locals who can show you stuff or attending your state mini are a great way to get off on the right foot. There are easier ways and harder ways to do this just as there are cheaper ways and more expensive ways ... and often the things that look cheap are anything but due to the complexities they often involve.
