WRAPUP: A beautiful fall day drew 40 MINIs and a Morgan on a great drive along some fun back roads.. A bunch of new members and first-timers came along as well as a bunch of club regulars. Unfortunately the good weather brought out too big a crowd at Starved Rock State Park, so there was only limited parking ability.. Many people headed out to a fantastic lunch at MJ’s Pub and Grill in nearby Oglesby. Special thanks to Rus for planning, pre-driving and leading the drive route and to Chris for coordinating all the food arrangements!!
send links of photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add them here..
