A few other fun things to see and do while in this area.....

If you look closely at the pic of the tower, on the right side you can just make out the remains of the light brown wooden ladder that people used to be allowed to climb to go to the top. At the museum there are pics of women in bustles and high top button up shoes on top of the tower, pics from the late 1800's is my guess. Also, if you look closely further up - about 3/4 or more to the top on the side near the ladder, you can see a white spec. that is a climber - you can get permission to climb the tower but you have to apply well in advance as they only let a limited number do it each season. I would love to go to the top, but no freakin way I'm climbing it - even with a ladder!

A group of about 10 of us went to Devil's Tower that day, as we were getting ready to leave a group of Mustangs came roaring in - there's a very limited number of parking spots around the museum lot- one of the women got out and yelled to the rest of the group "it's OK! The little cars are leaving!  :-)

If a group of classics go, we can park them two to a spot, nose to tail.

I managed to get registered and made reservations at the host hotel.  It looks like I will be going solo - Bruce is not going and Craig does not have the time available.


MiniDave

Glad to hear you're going, but it's early days yet.....there may be someone from one of the local clubs you can roll with.....

What days are you going to be there? Looks like nothing really going on till Tuesday......I was thinking of getting there a day early and taking some short side trips, after driving for two days to get there I won't want to spend the next day in the car too!

Devil's Tower is just over an hour away, Deadwood is close by and you can get out and walk the street and see all the old historical stuff. Of course, Rushmore is right there too - it's super impressive if you've never seen it before.....and the Crazy Horse monument.

Edit: Looking at the schedule, it looks like there is a lot of free time (for me anyway) in the early part of the event......Monday is meet and greet, Tues the car show but that's over by early afternoon then the rest of the day is open. Wed is the autocross which I'm not going to run so other than watching, that day is open too. Thursday looks to be a full day, and Friday we head out home.......so I'm thinking I might arrive Monday night, leave Friday.

From the Planning Committee:

Folks, on behalf of the organizing committee for Mini Meet East-West 2024 in Spearfish, SD from July 8-11, 2024, thank you so much for pre-registering for this very fun event. This every-five-year event allows you the opportunity to see cars you may have never seen before.

 
The Committee has a full week's worth of activities planned for you and your family, and with Spearfish being in the middle of the Black Hills, there is so much great scenery and wonderful driving roads for you to enjoy. We don't care what you drive (well, partially true), we just wany you and your friends to come and enjoy the event.

 
Please spread the word... If you have Mini/MINI friends who may not have registered yet, please encourage them to do so before May 24th since that's when the "early bird discount" comes to an end (although Registration will be open into mid-June at the full price). And remind them this event is for classic Minis, new MINIs and KIDS TOO. We have several activities planned and special gifts just for the kids.

 

As a reminder, below is quick "high-level" summary of the Events Diary:

Monday, July 8: Registration and a Welcome Meet-n-Greet

Tuesday, July 9: Mini Meet Car Show and Auto-Cross early inspections

Wednesday, July 10: Auto-Cross and Funkhana

Thursday, July 11: Rally Through The Black Hills and Closing Banquet

 

In addition to these "High Level" events, there will be numerous other events taking place during the week including the panoramic photo, Hot Wheel and Rocker Cover Racing, and much more.

 
The town of Spearfish is a ten-minute drive from the hotel and is picturesque "Small-Town Americana". About 20 minutes away is the town of Deadwood, which reminds you of an old western town. And, if you've ever wondered what the motorcycle haven of Sturgis is like, that's also only 20 minutes away.

Please reach out if you have any questions (24eastwest@gmail.com).

 
Looking forward to seeing you in less than eight weeks!! SAFE TRAVELS!!

 
Thanks

East-West 2024 Committee
