        A bit of history...
        SAMOA has been doing the White Elephant get together since 1978. As of 2015 there has been one every year except 1988. So, 37 out of 38 years. And the missed year was likely missed because the normal late-in-the-year WE was changed to a January date in 1989 where it stayed all but two years (1994 and 2015).
        Last year's gross income was a little more than 40% more than the best prior year, and with only one exception, was more than any two years added together.
        Can we beat it this year?

          Mitch,

          Sorry for missing you. I can't get your direct email here, so if you'll email me at [email protected], I'll send you the evite with all the details.

                Peter, don't know what happened to the schedule, used to be on the SAMOA events page. If I remember correctly, show up about 1000-1100 to help with set up and food.

                  There's a schedule on the home page if you skim down far enough.

                    Great Job - whoever put the ad on Seattle Craigslist

                    It was a pleasant surprise to come across the ad for W.E.S. 2016!
                    See you all there!

                      Really? The White Elephant is open to anyone who comes across it on Craigslist?

                        Absolutely. I spend a lot of time shopping for Mini's. It's hard to believe how many people are selling Mini's or parts on Craigslist and have never heard of SAMOA.

                        The event is open to the public, but potluck, racing, food, etc is only for members. Hopefully a way to grab a few new members like we did last year.

                          I had a great time attending this event for the first time. Thanks to all who had a hand in pulling it together. I just wish my car was water tight.

                            I'm locking this thread in the Events section and I'll open a WE discussion in the Chat section.
