WRAPUP: Great weather and a great drive!! We had a large turnout of almost 30 MINIs of all colors and styles.. We had quite a few first timers who I suspect will be back for more drives. We took a fun and twisty route up around Lake Geneva and back. Huge thanks to Chris for all the route planning and and for taking the lead driving position on the route!!
