Wow, what a great weekend! HUGE congrats to The Sin City MINI Club and the AMVIV commitee for putting on yet another fantastic event!
We’ve been working hard to get everything up and posted for you! All of the video (so far) is up at WhiteRoof.tv. Here is a sample.
You can check out the photos here. Be sure to do a search at Flickr for AMVIV as there are a TON of great photos from some of the best MINI photographers in the country!
We still have audio and a little more video that you aren’t going to want to miss. We did a live show from AMVIV that some of you caught online plus camera were rolling for the banquet! All of that will be coming up later in the week.
MINI United Update
MINI United is coming up in less than 60 days, which is a perfect time for us to get together with Gina Kutros, Shows and Events Manager from MINIUSA. She answers questions about extra costs involved and gives us the low down on what MINIUSA has planned for those going to MINI United from the US.
If you are in the US and planning on going, be sure to register through MINIUSA here. You can get all of the information from the invitation and be sure to keep an eye on miniunited.com for updates. You can set up a free account there as well so you can connect with others that are going.
Not able to make it? Not to worry! White Roof Radio will be, bringing you interviews, photos and video as it happens from Silverstone!
MINI United Update:
White Roof Radio AMVIV Update
A MINI Vacation in Vegas is 1 week from today friends! Are you ready? If you have already registered, great job! If not, there is still time, but not much. Registration will close tomorrow at noon! After that, banquet tickets will no longer be available and no guarantee of a shirt or a hat and you won’t be able to get one of the snazzy, pre-printed name badges.
The tentative schedule has gone up if you are wondering what it is you want to do. Of course Todd and I will be there, recording Woofcast 291 LIVE from the upper deck of the Palace Station before taking off to the Show and Shine. Expect things to get started right around noon. For those of you not able to make it, keep an eye on the sites for the live feed.
We hinted at this during Woof 290, but there will not be a regular show tonight. With today being the start of Todd’s birthday extravaganza and Michael or Gabe not being available, it would only be me, and that would be fairly boring. I will put up a Best of WRR in the feed on Monday for you to tide you over.
Don’t forget the new White Roof Radio page at Facebook either!. It’s set up so that you can share photos and videos with other WRR Fans, plus I’ll be putting a few things there as well.
1 week. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I can’t wait!
AMVIV is just about a week away! Listen in for Todd’s tip for getting a room in Vegas if you missed out on the great rate Palace Station was offering. There is still time to register for the event if you haven’t already. Even if you don’t register, you should still think about going, but remember, if you don’t register, you won’t be able to attend the banquet. Tickets for that are presale only.
If you do decided to go, be sure to be around the upper deck of Palace Station on Saturday because we will be doing an honest to goodness live show. Woofcast #291 or #292, depending on what happens this week.
Of course, we cover news of the week from Motoringfile.com. If you were wondering what a Space Box is, here you go. Of course, if you are looking for something more practical, check out the image above, sent in by our good friend Jim Peterson, The “Kernel” of C.O.R.N.
More on AMVIV to follow early next week. Stay tuned!
If you missed it, I’ve set up a few White Roof Radio page at Facebook, with links to other cool places on Facebook, including the AMVIV group. Come join us!

Woofcast #290 Live tonight!
For those of you that like to play along at home, Todd, Michael and myself will be doing Woofcast 290 live tonight via uStream.tv.
Check back tonight at 7:00 PM Pacific time for all the fun and frivolity. Remember, if you want to play along in the chat room using your own screen name, you will need to set up a free account at uStream. Click the link above to take care of that.
You’ve heard this excuse a few times over the last few weeks, right? It’s our number 1 excuse for doing a live show. This time, it caused us to not do any show. Normally we know in advance when we aren’t going to get a show out for you, but this time it was unavoidable.
But, not to worry! While not terribly MINI related, I did get together with Michael and Patricia to do a gadget review of not 1 but 2 eBook readers! The Kindle 2 and the Sony PRS 505 head to head. That will be going up later today or early tomorrow.
