Volo Bog drive 10/24

Enjoy a fall drive with MINI friends on some fun roads, ending with a bring-your-own picnic lunch at the Volo Bog!!

WRAPUP: A beautiful but chilly day brought out 35 MINIs for a fun drive in the northern suburbs.. Lots of first timers as well as manu MINI Club seasoned veterans. Patrick MINI hosted our starting location and went above and beyond by supplying some pre-drive snacks as well as gift baskets for our picnic and other goodies as well. We had a fun drive except when the leader missed a turn and many MINIs took a bit of a detour. We all regrouped at Volo Bog for a picnic lunch, hangout and chance to explore the park.
Thanks again to Patrick MINI as well as Mark H. for setting up the Rallista iPhone app routing directions.

WHAT: Just a fun get-together and drive on some interesting back roads, ending at the Volo Bog nature area with a chance to hang out with MINI friends and have a bring-your-own picnic lunch and explore the park.
