EVENT FOLLOW UP!
Hello Gang, Today started very early for a few members that met today in Gurnee. We had 8 MINI’s to start and picked up one more along the way to the MILE.
Here are Dustins pictures
The cool part is you can print them at YOUR LOCAL Walgreens.
We drove to Milwaukee to meet another 24 MINI’s to drive in together. I think we had the single highest number of cars of any one group, with Vettes a close 2nd. Doing laps was fun, and Cliff made it really fun! While the laps were fun, the team running the Mile event at the MILE really needs some help. This was one of the most disorganized events I have ever been too. Unless there are major changes in how they run the event my 1st will be my last.

Join the Milwaukee MINI Club on Sunday, May 6th for the DRIVE THE MILE event with the opportunity to drive 3 laps around the Milwaukee Mile!
For those of you who joined us last year, the Milwaukee Mile assures us that they are much more organized this year! Last year the MINIS had the largest car club contingent there with 26 MINIS – let’s make it even larger this time around!
Dustin will be leading the Chicago Area people, meeting at the Steak and Shake in Gurnee Mills (6070 Gurnee Mills Cir E, Gurnee, Illinois) at 7:30
See below for more details. The Registration form needs to be in by April 16th
WHEN: Sunday, May 6, 2007
ADMISSION: Pre-register for a fee of $10 per driver, or pay $15 the day of the drive. Passengers ride for free, and two non-perishable food items (per vehicle) are requested for the Hunger Task Force collection.
WANT TO PARTICIPATE? Complete the registration form and return directly to The Milwaukee Mile. Be sure to note on the form that you are part of the Milwaukee MINIS and heard about it through the Club. (Even though the deadline says April 12th , we have official permission to push the deadline back to April 16th. ), after you mail in your registration, be sure to RSVP to Milwaukee MINI member Pat at email@example.com so that he can keep track of who is attending.
MEETING SPOT: Ignore the specific gate information that will be sent to you by The Milwaukee Mile once you register. Instead, plan to meet at 9 am in the Walgreens parking lot across from The Milwaukee Mile at the corner of Greenfield Avenue and 84th Street in West Allis, WI. From there, Pat & Dustin will be taking the lead on organizing everyone to drive onto the track together. ONCE YOU’VE COMPLETED YOUR LAPS: Victory Lane will be open to pose with your MINI for photos, there will be a huge classic car show, as well as food and refreshments available for purchase. We have reserved paddock space to display our MINIS as a group afterwards as well. SMALL PRINT: Must be 18 years of age and older to drive. Must present a valid drivers license and must present proof of current vehicle insurance. No exceptions.
