10/04/2004 Update: If you are interested in hanging out for diner at Captains Cove, in nearby Ottawa please respond below so we can plan for reservations
Here are the details you have been waiting for about the Starved Rock Fall drive. Please add to the comments if you are planning on atending, so we can get a good headcount
What: A group MINI drive to Starved Rock State Park.
When: Sunday October 17th
Where: Starting at Patrick MINI, 696 Golf Road in Shaumburg, ending in Starved Rock. This will be a most of the day event
The Plan:We will meet at about 8:30, and hit the road at about 9:00. From there we will head to Euroquipe in St. Charles. They are a shop that works on BMW’s, Porsche’s and MINI’s. They have invited our club to stop by, check out the shop and have a light snack on our way. We should arrive around 9:45, and probably hit the road again 10:30-ish. From there, we will head to Minooka (about an hour drive) where we will start a nice little route to Utica. We will probably find a place for lunch near Morris, and then head into Starved Rock State Park. No real plans after that.. Everyone is free to explore the area and hang out as long as they please.
What to bring: A full tank of gas, FRS Radio (if you have one), comfortable clothes for the day (perhaps sunscreen, bug spray, etc), and a smile!

If anyone has photos of the Starved Rock event that they would care to share, please forward them on to myself, or any of the club officers. We will try to put a few pics up afterwards.
