World's largest snowball fight

WRAPUP: We had about a half dozen members show up for the snowball fight. The worlds record was set at around 3000 people. There were several MINI convertibles on display from MINIUSA and local dealers. A fun time was had by all. Big thanks to Chris at MINIUSA for providing VIP parking for club members!!

Here is some information passed on to us from MINIUSA.:

MINI USA is co-sponsoring an event in Wauconda, Illinois this Saturday January 29th at 10 am.
A civic group is registered and attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for the largest snow ball fight.
MINI Banners and flags, and some cars will be everywhere all around. Chicago media will be in attendance.

Following that is a day long winter carnival on the lake. We will be participating.

Anyone looking for a Motoring Destination should come out. The snow ball throw will be at the park located across from the High School 510 North Main Street, Wauconda, Illinois.
Tell traffic security your with the MINI sponsors and bring your MINI front and Center to where the media are, providing there is enough room left.

The afternoon we will be located at Lindy's Landing on the Lake 300 block of Main st Wauconda, Illinois. MINIUSA will have a few dealers offering convertible ALWAYS OPEN top down test drives. Who knows, maybe we will sneak out on the lake for a little driving fun.

These activities are located just North of Illinois Rt 176 on Old Rand Road, also called Main Street with in the village.

The registration form and more info can also be found Here.
