Spring Drive March 15th

MINI Cooper Spring Drive 

WRAPUP: Incredible weather, great roads, great food and a whole bunch of MINI (and Mini) people.  This was the perfect start to the driving season!!

We wound up with a really nice sunny warm day for a drive..  Over 40 cars participated in a fun cruise on some quiet backroads.  We had a nice mix of new people and familiar faces.   The drive ended with a lunch with the Minis In Northern Illinois club.  A round of raffle prizes finished a great MINI day.

Huge thanks to Paul who did all the route planning,  organizing, and lead drive duty and the M.I.N.I club for letting us share their afternoon with us.
