We will be joining forces with the Milwaukee MINIs and other area clubs for a fun group drive on some twisty Wisconsin back roads. We have moved our traditional early spring drive date back a little bit to Saturday April 16th to hopefully catch a bit of warmer weather.
WRAPUP: Rain, cold, drizzle, and even a bit of snow.. Not the best of conditions, but we still attracted 25 or so MINIs (and one Honda Del Sol) from the Chicagoland and Milwaukee areas to cruise some fun back roads. The wet conditions made the turns a bit more challenging, and a good time was had by all. We then stopped off for a late lunch at the Bristol 45 Diner. Huge thanks again to the Milwaukee MINIs for joining us, Pat for the route planning, Cherissa for the lunch coordination, and the Bristol 45 Diner for being able to accommodate our crowd.
