PSMINI Summer Picnic and Car Show 2018
Thorton A Sullivan Park
It’s finally that time! That wonderful part of summer where we get together and celebrate each other as one big Mini diving family as well as the Minis themselves. That’s right, it’s the much beloved annual PSMINI summer picnic and car show! Our epic pot luck hang out once again returns to Thornton A. Sullivan Park / Camp Patterson on beautiful Silver Lake for another year. As always, this is not only your chance to meet and greet, but also your chance to show and shine, because we will be holding our fabulous car show! Compete with your Mini against your friends and loved ones; you have the chance to walk away with a trophy or ribbon in one of several categories! Also returning, is our fantastic raffle. Our awesome club sponsors and members have donated some very cool items that can be won! Maybe even by you! So, come on out, bring a dish, or small item to share, and let’s have a great time!
Some info on our location:
Thorton A. Sullivan Park provides us with excellent amenities like an open camp charcoal grill, a large covered area with electricity, a prep-sink, private bathrooms, private parking, park benches, and picnic tables. It should be a great summer day, perfect for relaxing with friends, and showing off those sweet rides. The lake should be great for swimming too! The only hang ups are NO PETS, and NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES (those two might be tough for this club, be with great resolve, I think we can manage.)
We will be running our car show, and also our prize raffle. Car show entries are $20.00 per vehicle. You may be considered for the class your vehicle falls into, as well as one of several special classes (E.G.: Best in Show; Most “Not Normal”). Voting is open to all attendees, you don’t have a car in the show to vote! You may pay to enter the show both on the Event registration page, and in person the day of. No need to pay any fee if you are not participating in car show.
The raffle will feature many sweet gifts and swag. As in other years, we will be selling tickets for $1.00 each. The winning numbers will be called on site, you must be present to win. If you need to check out early, leave your entries with a friend you trust….like a lot. Winning numbers not claimed prudently, will be set aside and we will call another number. Raffle tickets will be sold on site only; you may buy as many tickets as you have dollars!

- A smile and some good stories to share
- Money for registration and additional raffle tickets

If you are a party of two or more you can use the Park-n-Ride exit at 112th. It’s a left hand exit from I-5 both southbound and northbound. Go up the ramp to the light on 112th and then turn Left at the light and take the next right and you’ll come out right by the park.
Parking: When you turn into the park you'll come into the gravel parking area. Keep going straight though the gate at the back of the parking lot and onto the grassy area which is ours for the day. We will help you find your way in the event you find yourselves lost!
