We are hard at work planning an Indoor Go Kart racing event for the end of January, and we are still working on details.
We are looking at doing a 3-race Grand Prix series with the top finishers running championship race.
Cost for participation is $40.
Due to limited availability, we are currently narrowed down to two time slots..
Saturday evening 1/31/03
Early Sunday Morning 2/1/03.
We would get a discount for Sunday (probably $10 – $15 or so) if we are done before the standard opening time of 10:00 am. This means we would probably have to start by about 8:00am.
For those who are interested in attending, please post which of the times you would prefer. I think we will need firm commitments from 25-30 people to make this a go.
We will hopefully have our date and time nailed down this weekend.
MINIUSA is highlighting some great ways to (A) get together with other MINI owners and (B) help out your local community.
And the coolest part… they're utilizing a photo that was taken by a Chicago MINI Motoring Club member this past spring and digitally enhanced by your's truly. You can check out a larger version here. In fact you can even download this image as a desktop wallpaper in the wallpaper section of www.bridger.us/mini in a variety of sizes. And if you still can't get enough you can see the entire set of photos from this even here (keep in mind this was suppose to a “spring” event!)
You can check out the MINIUSA “Make a Difference” website here.
I am inviting everyone to a Holiday Lights Drive in the Lincolnwood Towers area on Friday December 12th.
This is an unstructured event where everyone can drive around on their own in the area bounded by Carpenter (Niles Center), Pratt, Cicero, and Devon to admire the show of lights from 7pm to 8pm.
Give a small beep and wave as you pass all the other MINIs cruising around the area at the same time.
We will meet up afterwards at Sanders Restaurant at the corner of Touhy and Carpenter at 8:00
This is not an official CMMC event, but I hope to see a bunch of you out there..
