November 3rd will be the date for our annual end of season drive out to Starved Rock State Park.
This event was renamed the Road Warrior Rock Run in 2016 to honor longtime club and board member Conrad Alexander.
WRAPUP: Another drive to Starved Rocks is in the books.. The predicted rain held off till late afternoon, and the fall colors were all in force (as was the crowds at the park) We had about 30 MINIs out for the day, with many on their first club drive.

The Halloween Techno Zombie Geo Cache Hunt!
is an all ages family friendly geo caching style scavenger hunt in Palatine, that uses digital and traditional technology to send players into participating businesses and various outdoor locations for an interactive fun activity. We also have the players do light community service work en route.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday, October 27th, 9am till 7pm
The players are free to start, stop and re-start their game at any point. Their goal is to get as many locations as possible in as short a time as possible (safely and uneventfully of course)
There is an awards celebration that follows in the evening from 7:30pm till 10:00 pm . This includes refreshments, music and prizes.

We are joining up with the Milwaukee MINIs for a fun drive and pizza stop..
WRAPUP: A chilly but nice day brought out about 35 or so MINIs from the Wisconsin and Chicago clubs, plus one MINI owner just driving past who saw the crowd of cars 😉 We took a fun drive thru some great roads. Trees are starting to turn so plenty of colors watch. The end destination was a pizza stop. Huge thanks to Milwaukee MINIs members Renee and Adam for all the planning and leading/following the group.

Looking to place an order (if enough interest) in about 4-6 weeks. Price will depend upon exceeding the minimum order number, but will be about $30. Comment if interested. There may be a discount if you buy 3 or 4.
