Chicago Auto Show Media Preview Day 2018

 

Our good friends at MINIUSA were able to arrange for a limited number of passes to attend the Chicago Auto Show media preview day on Friday February 9th.

A great opportunity to experience one of the countries largest shows before it opens to the general public.

WRAPUP: A very snowy day kept the sparse crowds even quieter.  All the better opportunity to get more 1 on 1 times with the cars and the rides.  Huge thanks to MINIUSA for making these tickets available to our club!

      Media preview day is great because the crowds are much smaller. You are in, but the link to get your tickets will be sent out in a couple weeks.

      • Jacob Kirkwood

        Awesome! I look forward to the experience. I know I’m excited and my cousin will be too. 🙂

    Thank you again Steve for this opportunity. My friend has a Countryman and we love stopping by the MINI booth every year. Hopefully we can get passes through you again. This would be our 4th year under Media Day – and we love it – one on one with all the new cars and get to ask limited questions.

  • Jim Buda

    Umm, just saw a commercial for the charity day auto show. Do we need a tux? It said black tie only

    • CMMC_Steve

      Nope, no tux needed. They kick everyone out of the Media preview day at 2pm and reset for the evening event.

      If you do show up in a tux.. I’ll take a pic and put you up on the club website 😉

      • Jim Buda

        Ahh so we are day time and tuxedos at night

  • CMMC_Steve

    Please note: I have had a bunch of recent responses for tickets in the past 24 hours.
    I wont be able to send back the details till late tonight. I hit a mail sending limit yesterday and am in a “cool off” period.

    • CMMC_Steve

      Update: Still having issues sending out emails.. I will be sending out info to everyone Friday morning

  • Mike Schiml

    I haven’t seen any email for this – Did I register correctly?

    • CMMC_Steve

      Hi Mike,
      I had sent it several weeks ago.. resent to you this morning

      • Mike Schiml

        Looking now and still no email. Can you confirm where it was sent? I’m getting concerned!

        • CMMC_Steve

          Just replied to the email you sent me.. (and it was the same email address).. Am I going to your spam box?

          • Mike Schiml

            Nothing in Junk, nothing in my inbox. I’ll send you my work email and they there instead…

          • CMMC_Steve

            sent again..

  • Scott

    Sherri and I went to the show today had a great time. Spoke with the MINI reps at length as it was a slow traffic day. We missed seeing any club members though. 🙁

    • CMMC_Steve

      Missed seeing you guys.. Ran into several club members while wandering around.
