WRAPUP: What a fun event!! The weather was perfect for some Motoring and outdoor visiting. We had 10 MINIs assemble in DeKalb including a brand new MINI Coupe just hours off the dealers lot, and a couple MINIs in costume. After a bit of hangout time, we took a visit to a nearby Corn Maze/Pumpkin farm. Afterwards we all headed back to the Trostles, and enjoyed a delicious meal, snacks, deserts, and drinks in a very festive house, and also enjoyed hanging out by the backyard fire pit. Huge thanks to Jerry, Laurel and Sarah for hosting such a great party!!

WRAPUP: What an incredible event!! We had a little bit of trouble with our original planned starting location, but after a couple moves we secured a hassle free meetup spot. We took a short scenic drive on some twisty roads and were then given the ful VIP treatment at the museum. We were treated to donuts and soft drinks, and a full and detailed tour of the workshop and museum areas, with a history of most of the cars in the collection. Words cannot do justice to describe the interesting cars, so take a look through the pictures below..
Huge thanks to Ken for being such a gracious host to our club, and to Arnie and Lena for helping with the arrangements.
