Thanks Pura Vida, that is the type of info I was looking / hoping for and with all due respect @ Deep Frz: Google
and Yahoo search-engines were naturally my first choice too, that is not what I asked for and they do not really deliver on the topic, at least not in respect to the US-scene. In addition to search engines I also browsed through some European mags and found a few websites:
, sort of the mother of it all: www.pogostructures.com
which actually offers a link to some US-enthusiasts.
A German website: www.classemini.de
which is largely under construction
pretty chaotic website, not even sure where these guys are located, are they actually building and selling a boat
..? Magnen is a known racer
in the scene but this website is just too far out there...
...which seems to be the main problem, so my hope is to find regular guys, manufacturers, clubs, who are in to the Minis in the US.
