Starved Rock 11/02


WRAPUP: It was a beautiful but chilly day.  Over 50 MINIs attended our last driving event of the season.   Bill Jacobs MINI graciously opened up on a Sunday and even brought us a tasty breakfast and some nice give-aways.  After a fun drive thru some nice twisty roads we ended the day at MJ’s Pub & Grill.. some people went on to visit Starved Rock state park. Thanks again to the staff at Bill Jacobs, and MJ’s Pub, plus Chris B. for helping with arrangements and morning check-in, and Lee E. with route planning assistance!!
