4/23 Indiana Dunes Drive

We will be joining up with the Northwest Indiana MINIacs for a meetup/hangout at the visitors center of the Indiana Dunes and then a cruise for ice cream in New Buffalo MI.

WRAPUP: A beautiful Saturday brought out a half dozen MINIs to meet and join up with a bunch of Indiana MINIacs at the Dunes Visitors center. Goodie bags were provided by the Dunes!! After a hangout time, a dozen MINIs took a scenic drive to New Buffalo for Ice Cream. A good time was had by all.
Huge thanks to Scott and Sherri H. for planning and leading the Chicagoland portion of the drive and to Matt M. for he Dunes and Michigan drive planning!

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.
