Starved Rock (10/26)

  WRAPUP:  Almost 40 cars and over 70 people participated in the best Starved Rock event yet.  We had participants from as far away as Wisconsin and Peoria including many new people, and lots of old MINI friends.  The day started out sunny and warm-ish but got much colder and more blustery as the day progressed.  A mid-point lunch spot provided a nice break and a chance to socialize.  The second leg backroad route took us past cornfields and more than a few twisty bits.  There was a bit of dodging and weaving around fallen branches from the high winds that passed through.  Several people braved the weather at the park and took the trek up to the summit of Starved Rock.

Huge thanks to Dustin Krause from Bill Jacobs MINI for opening up on a Sunday, and providing the Donuts and meeting spot.  Thanks also to the many people who helped to make this another home run caliber event including Cathy and Gary, Conrad, Kevin and Arnie!!

Please send links to pictures (but not actual pictures) to and I will post them here to share.
