WRAPUP: Fantastic weather brought out over 2 dozen MNIS (plus a couple of really cool Minis). There were several new people out for their first event, and people from as far away as Madison, Wi and as far east as almost Indiana. We split up into a couple groups to enjoy fifty miles of empty back roads and entertaining curves. The faster group inadvertently split up into a couple smaller groups that “decided” to do some extra credit mileage.
We eventually all made it back to Blake’s place for burgers, dogs, chips, drinks and sweets as well as a chance to hang out and socialize.
Huge thanks to Dustin, Blake and all who helped plan, organize and test-run this event!!!
If you have links to pictures, send me an e-mail and I will put them here..
