SUPERDAWG and the Cul de sacs of Vernon Hills 8/16

Superdawg

MINIs will be back at Superdawg on a prime time Saturday night!!

This year we will meet up beforehand for a fun little neighborhood cul de sac drive so we can all arrive en-mass.

WRAPUP:  A beautiful evening and a really fun drive..  We had almost 30 MINIs participate in a twisty neighborhood drive thru 14 cul de sacs.  We were met by another 15 or 20 MINIs at Superdawg where we were treated to rock-star parking out front and center.  A really nice evening for hanging around and visiting with MINI friends!!  Huge thanks to Arnie and Lena for all the planning and route details, and to Superdawg for hosting our event!!

MINI Drag Racing night 7/23

WRAPUP:   A beautiful night and a ton of fun at the races..  We had about a dozen MINIs show up to race or spectate.  Chris E. helped get everyone get set and answered all our pre-race questions.  We went out for a bunch of trial pre-runs before things got crowded and get an idea of what kind of times we would be running.  Then we had a 6 MINI bracket race.. An elimination contest where you predict your finish time (that you are not allowed to surpass) and there is a staggered start such that a perfect run would yield a tie between the two cars.  Winner of each round goes on to race someone else.  The final race was a very close contest with Chris E. coming out just ahead of Jim M.  A fantastic winners trophy was put together/donated by David L.  This will become a traveling trophy for next year’s event winner.  Huge thanks to Chris and David for this fun event!!
