Wisconsin Drive 04/30

WRAPUP:  A cold and soggy day still brought out over 20 MINIs for the drive.  Several people headed down from the Milwaukee area, and we had a number of first timers in addition to our veteran motorers.   Knauz MINI opened up their showroom for us on a Sunday and brought some tasty morning treats.

  • Phyllis Emroll

    Steve, Lee and I just want to clarify. We will LEAVE Knauz at 10:00 AM, so we should be there a bit early, correct? Also, you were getting a head count for food at Knauz? Just checking to decide if we need to eat first or if something will be there. Thanks, Steve.

    • CMMC_Steve

      Yes.. 10am departure, and I do not believe there will be food at the start.
      We are driving rain or shine
