WRAPUP: 41 MINIs and a handful of others (BMWs, VW, and Ford) headed out to explore the back roads to Starved Rock. Lots of new people were out for their first drive with the club. The much anticipated Finnie Road stretch was unfortunately freshly covered in pea gravel so speeds were down, dust and debris were up. The weather was as good as it gets for this time of year. We were treated to VIP parking at the Grand Bear Resort and a breakfast buffet in a large dining hall. Afterwards, several people went out to explore Starved Rock, while others took off for parts unknown.
