Hello

There are two events that might be of interest to you.

Classic Cars and Coffee at the Kilton Inn, Warrington Road, Mere, Knutsford, WA16 0PZ from 10:00am to 1:00pm. This is an informal get together, arrive and leave as you wish.

60 Years of the Mini at St Helens Transport Museum – 4th August – The organisers are looking for Minis to attend this event in the old “Bus Garage” in St Helens (i.e. indoors) They do need to know who is coming as space is limited, there are some places left so if you would like to go please reply asap

Cheers

See our events calendar

Forum

Our club forum contains a wealth of information about Minis of all types and provides an excelent medium for the interchange of information between members.

Welcome to the Mini Cooper Register

If you own a Mini – Cooper or non-Cooper – original or modern – or just want to know more about the marque, the Mini Cooper Register is the club for you. Friendly, active and with a strong UK and international membership, we keep the sporting spirit of John Cooper’s brainchild alive half a century after it first made motoring history.

The Mini Cooper Register was founded in 1986, not just for owners but enthusiasts as well, all wanting to share in the Cooper’s rich history, from race and rally successes to being the car of choice for many of the ’60s coolest trendsetters.

The introduction of the Rover Cooper in the 1990s and BMW’s new MINI for the 21st century have further extended our membership and created fresh interest in the increasingly rare and valuable original Coopers.

That interest is reflected in the club’s wide range of marque registers. There are 12 catering for every age and type of car to carry a Cooper badge whilst the 1275GT and the Mini Super each has its own dedicated register. In total 14 registers.

We don’t just cater for Mini Coopers, owners of non-Cooper models are just as welcome.

As well as these marque registers we have a thriving network of regional groups and the club’s Forum and Facebook page help members keep in touch, share their interests and solve technical issues.

A year-round calendar of events offers lots of opportunities to use or show your car and to meet other members. The highlight of the club’s calendar is the National Mini Cooper Day, held annually at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in Hampshire, an event that attracts thousands of Cooper fans and their cars.

Classic Cars and Coffee at the Kilton

by Mike Bennett

Hello

You are receiving this email as a member of the Mini Cooper Register based in the Cheshire region.

The Midget and Sprite Club have invited us to a Classic Cars and Coffee morning on the 14th of April from 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Kilton Inn on the A50 near Knutsford (Warrington Rd, Hoo Green, Knutsford WA16 0PZ).

This will be an informal get together of classic cars and their owners and coffee will be available, there is no need to book, just turn up. For those wishing to stay on, the Kilton does serve lunch.

The meetings will continue on the 2nd Sunday of each month.

As we are not represented in the Cheshire Region, I hope that this event will prove to be a useful way of getting to meet other members in the area.

Cheers

Web Site Outage

Dear Member

We have had a significant outage with the club website and email system, regrettably, it caused considerable inconvenience, not only to our members but also to the members of the committee that use the facilities to run the club, specifically to Paul our editor who heavily depends on the emails for the production of CooperWorld.

Without going into too many technical details, the problem started when the server crashed intermittently, just like the problem with an elusive misfire, there could have been a number of causes for these problems and numerous steps were taken to isolate the issue and fix it. Then the server crashed and could not be restarted. The engineers replaced numerous components but, in the end, it was irreparable and a new server was built and installed. The email system restarted and worked well but the website could not be re-instated due to the way in which the new server had been built. The engineers attempted to resolve this but brought down the email service in the process. After a while, it became apparent that this situation was not going to get any better and a new company was found to host a server and they built a new one that had the advantage of being a later model and using newer technology. The new contract also provides for them to manage the hardware and operating system and automatically switch to new hardware should the same problem occur in the future.

With the new server available, the club’s website and email system have been restored and are now operational.

This has been an intense and at times very frustrating episode and I am sorry that it has caused so much inconvenience, but on the positive side, we now have a better platform for our internet technology.
