Spring Cheese Castle Drive 03/20

Wrapup: Beautiful weather brought out over 30 MINIs for a fun morning drive.. We had a bunch of new people as well as many long time club members who haven’t driven with us in quite some time.
We also had a good split between Wisconsin Club members and Illinois members. After a fun twisty drive (and only getting lost a little bit) we all wound up at the Cheese Castle in Kenosha for some eats and hanging out.
