Spring is fast approaching, and as promised we have planned a Road Rallye for early spring. Infact so early, that it is scheduled for the first day of spring.
40 years ago Paddy Hopkirk won the Monte Carlo Road rallye in a mini. Maybe you can win the 1st ever Chicago MINI Poker Run!
Who: Open to all CMMC members, their navigators, and people wishing to join the club.
What: This is a Poker Run road Rallye.
Where: The start is at Knauz MINI, Lake Bluff.
When: Sunday, March 21st. Check in is at 10 am. Drivers/navigators meeting at 10:20am.
Why: It?s spring! Let?s put the windows down and drive!
Remember, as this Rallye is on a Sunday, Knauz will be closed (no bathrooms at the rallye start).
What?s happening: We will be departing from Knauz at 1 minute intervals beginning at about 10:30 am. This is not a race. There is really no advantage to being first, or last, as your fate is all in the cards you draw at each of the 5 locations. Prizes (of the nifty sort) will be awarded at the final stop to the best poker hand. A huge thanks to Mini Mania for helping us out with this!
What to pack?
Bring a map of the Chicago area. Bring someone who can read a map.
A cell phone and or FRS radio may come in handy if you need assistance (real men don?t need directions). Cash, or a credit card. As with most of our drives this one has food on the itinerary.
Where are we going?
Can?t tell you, it?s a secret. Actually at each of the first 4 stops, you will get a destination sheet along with your poker hand card.
Are we there yet?
We think we will be done between 3 and 4pm.
Sign me up, I?m lucky at cards?
