MOTD – Who’s going?


I know there are several Chicago Area people planning on attending this year’s MINIs on the Dragon event..? Beautiful country, challenging roads, vendors, ?and several hundred MINIs to hang out with.


Add a comment to let us know if you are going.. perhaps you’ll be able to hook up with other Chicago area people for the trip down or back..

        I’m in a vacation home about 5 minutes north on 129 from the Microtel. ?I can’t wait to eat at the Sweetwater BBQ (assuming its still there).

    for those still going… ?CMMC has an FRS channel reserved. According to the Welcome Guide, we will be on channel 14, sub channel 7. ?Drive safe everyone. ?Hope to see you there!

    Unfortunately, Mike Schiml and I will not be able to make MOTD this year. If anyone is looking for a place to stay we are letting our reservation go at the Topoco Lodge. It’s a room with 2 double beds Includes breakfast and lunch. They will be releasing the room soon if you want it.

    Call me at 815 7917812 if you need the reservation info.

    ***** Can someone please pick up our bags of swag that will be at registration. Barry (MOTD organizer) said someone from back here could grab our stuff and bring it back home for us. **
