April Drive (04/05)


WRAPUP:  The predicted bad weather held off, and we were left with a pretty day for a drive (pretty cold and windy day that is)..

About 25 MINIs from the Chicago and Milwaukee areas participated in the scenic drive around Southern Wisconsin back roads.  Unfortunately the Drag strip was closed for the day due to the anticipated bad weather, but we made up a last minute plan B stop at the famous Brat Stop.   It was great that they were able to accommodate a large last minute crowd.  The driving quiz was hotly contested with 5 people getting the same highest score.  The winner was drawn at random from the five, and the  picnic set from Knauz MINI was awarded to Greg.

Huge thanks to Pat for all the planning of the fantastic drive and quiz, and to Knauz MINI for helping us out with the quiz prize!!!

As usual,  please send a link to your photos or video (but not the actual photos) to steve@chicagominiclub.com and I will post them here.  Also feel free to join and share your photos to the Chicago MINI Motoring Club flickr group if you have a Flickr account.
