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.

2nd Annual Baseball Rally – August 15th

Announcing our 2nd annual Baseball Rally.

This year we have worked out a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers for tickets and
goodies as a package, at a reduced cost for our members and guests. Here's the deal… Last year tickets cost $12.00 each for the seats we had. This year we were able to purchase the same level seats, near home plate on the third base side. We have worked a package deal with the Brewers that we hope
you will like. Tickets this year are $9.00 and include a Soda and HotDog, with each ticket. This is a great deal, but we only have 150 seats for

Can I get email for club events?

In the early days of the Chicago MINI Motoring Club (way back last year) we often sent out email notifications of upcoming club events.

We have been moving towards less notification via email, and instead relying on posting information here on our site. This is due to a number of reasons including worries about spam, email viruses, and the difficulty of maintaining an ever growing list of addresses.

There are many among us who would still prefer to be notified of events via email, and would rather not have to check this site every day for fear of missing a cool event

I would like to offer up a couple of options to make it easier to keep up with events.
