CMMC Holiday Party (12/11)


WRAPUP: Over 25 MINIs (and a few non-MINIs) filled the streets outside Taylors home.  Inside there were plenty of eats, drinks, snacks, and desserts. Lots of conversation and visiting and some cool raffle prizes including gift certificates from Cravenspeed.  A really great way to wrap up the MINI season..

Huge thanks again to Taylor for hosting such a great party, and to everyone who came out to share a wonderful afternoon and evening.

    Happy Holidays Everyone, we were on our way to the party 2:?? and received a very scary phone call (family emergency that turned out to NOT be an emergency) after we drove west for an hour. Sorry we missed everyone 🙁 Glad you all had an awesome time. Wish we could have made it.

  • I had a great time.. Thanks Taylor for hosting and to everyone for coming out and making this such a fun event!!
