Emmons Coachworks Detailing Tech Session

The MINI Club of Chicago is partnering with the renowned Emmons Coachworks to offer club members an exclusive session on how to properly maintain and care for your MINI.

The session will take place on June 12th. We'll start at 11:00 am and go until about 2:00 pm. This will be a fantastic opportunity to not only learn from from very experienced professionals but also to check out one of the best and well known car care companies in the US.

We'll have much more information in the coming weeks. Until then if you're interested in attending the event please RSVP in the comments below or by emailing our Vice President Steve Rosenblum: steve@chicagominiclub.com.

See you there!

General Membership Meeting and Get Together

We have set a time and place for our General Membership Meeting. The agenda is still in the works, and should be posted in the near future.

This meeting will be a very casual happening and nothing that is incredibly important to attend for general members. However we wanted to invite everyone as the board is always looking for feedback on issues that come up. Generally we'll just be chatting about some things on our plate for year two of the CMMC.

Where: Culver's of Buffalo Grove

450 McHenry Road

Buffalo Grove, IL 60089


This is the same location that we had our Farewell Deb and Sebby Cruise last year

When: Saturday May 22nd

Meet at Culver's at about 2:00 P.M

Please post here if you are interested in attending, so we have some idea of how large a crowd we will be.

A group of us will be meeting at Plaza de Lago between 12:45 and 1:00 for a drive up Sheridan and then out to Culvers. we'll be leaving at 1:15 promptly!

Let us know if you would like to join up (or organize groups from other areas to drive in together)

General Membership Meeting

The CMMC board is in the process of setting a time and date for a general membership meeting for all club members. We'd like to know generally what days and times are best for most members. Obviously we can't fit into everyone's schedule but we can at least get a good idea what might work for most.

Chicago Indoor Racing Karting May 30

Chicago Indoor Racing Karting
Scheduled for Sunday May 30th at 8:45am

Given the fantastic response from the last karting event, we?ve decided to
do it again. Again taking place at the newly opened Chicago Indoor Racing
Facility in Buffalo Grove on Sunday, May 30th at 8:45am. We?ll be renting out the larger of the two tracks for the first 30 members that RSVP. Price will again be $40. To reserve a spot download this form, enclose a check and send it in to the club P.O. Box (listed on the form).

If we we?re unable to fill all 30 positions with members, we?ll open the remainder to non-members. Similarly, if we receive greater than 30 responses, we can increase the racing time by 15 minutes to accommodate an
additional 10 drivers.

As many of you already know, May 30th is the day of the Indy 500. Chicago
Indoor Racing will be broadcasting the race on their many monitors
throughout the facility. There?s also a very good chance they?ll be
broadcasting the race on one of the screens in one of their meeting rooms.
For those of you lucky enough to be attending this legendary event, don?t
worry, we will be doing more kart racing.
