Six cars from the Chicago area drove down together to Indianapolis where we met up with another six cars from the Minnesota Club. An additional 3 Chicago Club members caught us at lunch time and along the way. We ran an impressive 15 car high speed caravan down to the Cincinnati area.
There was a Friday night pre-event meetup at Skyline Chili, which by all reports was a big success
Over 100 MINIs converged on Kings Island Amusement Park in Mason Ohio on Saturday morning, June 16th. We were presented with VIP passes, and treated to a Continental breakfast in front of the Italian Job Roller coaster before the park oopened. We are able to line up to be the first ones on the ride when the park officially opened. A picnic style dinner was also provided as well as a chance to take one more exclusive ride on the Italian Job Coaster after the park closed at 11pm.
My family and I had a great time both at the park, and meeting and hanging out with so many other MINI owners. I was even able to have my car put on display in the entrance at the front of the park
All in all, a great weekend. I hope PKI puts together another event next year!!
