Starved Rock Wrapup

Huge thanks to Bill Jacobs MINI for providing coffee, donuts and bagels and a cool starting place for our drive to Starved Rock!!

With the help of the Minis in Northern Illinois Club, we had a total of 17 MINIs out for the drive in comfortable late fall weather. There was a bit of traffic in the beginning, but the roads cleared up after Morris as we headed into the twisty bits. I was running cleanup in the rear of the line, and there were times when I could see MINIs heading in three different directions on the same road.

The park was much less crowded than last year, and it was no problem finding a good set of parking spots.

After a late lunch, some people headed home, some people explored the park, and a few just hung around in the bar. A fun time was had by all.

Thanks to Lex and Conrad for organizing this great event!!

  • It was fun! Can't wait till the next one 😀

    I hope everybody had a nice time. Sorry about the slight SNAFU at the Restaurant Bar/Grill. Lex and I got incorrect info from the staff there prior to our arrival.
