Supercar Saturday June 5th

WRAPUP: About a dozen MINIs came out to enjoy Supercar Saturday.. a great mix of newer and older club members.  We had an initial get-together and a short drive out to Glenview.  A bit of rain in the middle kept some of the coolest cars away, but there was still plenty of neat stuff to look at.   We decided to take a neighborhood drive, and the weather cleared out for smooth sailing, and a lunch stop at a great Hot Dog stop.  Huge thanks to Francis for all the event and route planning!!

Superdawg 5/21

MINI Cooper Superdawg

WRAPUP: A bit of early evening drizzle did not dampen the enthusiasm for hanging out at the worlds coolest Hot Dog place.  40 MINIs, Mini, Lotus, and a few other cars showed up over the evening from such faraway places as Madison, Milwaukee, and even New Jersey (plus a bunch of people from much closer).  A really great evening to hang out and visit, look at cool cars, have some great food, and enjoy each others company.

Huge thanks to Arnie for making all the arrangements to provide for such a fun evening, even though he was unable to attend..

BMW/MINI Distribution Center

 

WRAPUP: Over 40 BMWs and MINIs met for a perfect Saturday Morning drive to the BMW/MINI Distribution Center in Minooka.  We were treated to snacks and fruit, and a presentation of the workings of the Distribution Center.  We then took a tour of the center with an in depth description of the workings of hoow the parts are brought in, stored, picked, and readied for delivery to over 30 area MINI and BMW dealerships.  After a wonderfull lunch, there was a raffle for many gifts and we all lined up for a group photo.  Huge thanks to Robert, Carla, and all the staff who volunteered their day to show us such a great time, and to Meg from the Windy City BMW Club for organizing the event and inviting the CMMC to participate!!
