We have a great set of drives and events planned in beautiful Jo Daviess County and the historic city of Galena the last weekend of September.
WHEN: September 29 & 30 2007
Saturday or Sunday? Why not both? Plan to join us for our first CMMC overnight event. Staying overnight is of course optional. We have a great set of events planned for each day that can be experienced individually or as a package.
We have lots of events in the works for the next several months. Details are not complete, but we have dates planned, and will provide more information as things get closer. Keep an eye on the right hand column of this website for links to what is happening..
Here is a short preview of what is comming up:
WRAPUP: We left McD’s under cloudy skies with 15 MINIs and headed to Suicide Circle. It’s an experience you have to try.. even just once. We roll by the local airport and zip through a few nice little roads. Along the way, we pick up a 16th MINI, then lose one off the back before arriving at our rest stop near Ft Sheridan. While there, we pick up a cabrio and trek to our final destination – the golf range. Along the way, we parade through Sheridan Rd, the Glen, and turn heads at an VW Auto-X at OCC.
Free bucket of balls and mini golf for everyone!!! Thanks to everyone who came out for a roll in the ‘burbs.

WRAPUP: About 20 cars attended this rally on a beautiful Sunday morning. We were given route sheets, and needed to solve clues for points and to determine many route directions. Participants lined up, and left at 2 minute intervalls.
After a couple hours of touring some fantastic back roads, getting lost, backtracking, chatting with an old lady selling a couch (but it won’t fit in my car.. What, you live in your car?), we gathered in Delafield for a fine meal and scoring the results.
Congratulations to Tom and Caren for winning the first and second place prizes, and thanks to the organizers for putting on such a fun event.

WRAPUP: Eight MINIs (and one radio controlled Mini) came out and wowed the Skokie parade crowds. The weather was great, and excitement levels were high!!

Dress your MINI up and participate in a July 4th Parade!!
WRAPUP: We had a small crowd of 5 MINIs gather due to wet weather. The advantage was light traffic, and a bit more excitement throught the twisty bits. After 55 miles of exploring back roads we headed off to a nice breakfast.
The perfect start to a Saturday morning!!
