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
don't wait too long to save the date.

    Iv'e started to send out ticket packages this week to those who have sent checks to me. We have about 40% sold so far. If you haven't placed your ticket order, or sent in your check yet, seats are available.

    claudio and maria would like four tickets. Please

    Wouldn't a MINI tailgate party properly be called a Boot Party?? : )

    I keep watching the events hoping I'll be able to see everyone when I can find the find to motor home (as Chicago will always be home to me!).

    SUNRISE RUN Anyone? Since we'll be up early anyways, how about an approximately 50+ mile fun run through central Lake County beginning shortly after … you guessed it … sunrise (5:59 am). It will take about 1 hour 10 minutes, and we should be back at Knauz 20-30 minutes before departure to Milwaukee.

    If you're interested, post here or send me an e-mail. I have a route sketched out, and have done one pre-run so far. We'll probably need another pre-run the weekend before. I'll need at least one “volunteer” to help with that and then be the sweeper for the actual run.

    If there is enough interest, we'll gather in the Panera Bread/Dominick's Parking lot just opposite from Knauz on the other side of 176 & 41 around 6 am, and depart shortly thereafter.

    John: I don't think I will be able to do the drive that morning, but I would like to know what roads you are planning. I will try to catch you before we leave for the baseball game. I am always looking for good MINI or motorcycling roads in the area.

  • jeeves

    We still have about 40 tickets left so it's not too late to join in the fun. that room for about 20 more MINIs.

    Lets be honest, we're planning on leaving for this game at 8am. Thats means we have roughly 3 hours of bootpartying. My question is then, who is bringing the beer bong?

  • Steve Rosenblum (Club Vice President)

    Remember that we are also meeting up with the Wiscosin MINI people at the Milwaukee dealer. We will need to all head into the park at the same time, since they won't have reserved parking for us 🙁

    Getting 50+ MINI's moving in the morning is a bit like herding cats..

  • jeeves

    You might want to pack a umbrela in your boot. Milwaukee's Sunday forecast calls for 30% chance of scattered thunderstorms. Good thing that Miller Park has a roof. I hate eatting soggy hotdogs, even if they are free.

  • Jason

    Hey you guys driving up from starbucks. What time will you be in southern wisconsin you think? I live off of Ryan Road, far southern milwaukee county, and would love to meet up with your posse for the ride up to International.

    cheers, jason

    Would love to get a couple pictures from the rallye. It being our first event, we of course forgot to bring our camera! Thanks – it was great to meet everyone!

  • Paul

    We had a very good time at our first club event. Would also love to see some pictures as we also forgot to bring a camera.
