The Club’s Board of Directors has decided, after some significant discussion, that the Club cannot sponsor the Michigan wine tour originally planned, or have it be associated with the Club in any way. The liability issues associated with mixing alcohol consumption (however slight) and driving, at any level, are simply too great to allow us to make the wine tour part of the sponsored drive.
Unfortunately plans have changed for the Knauz Garage Day. Due to the attorneys getting involved we will not be able to do any work ourselves at Knauz and thus the garage day will not happen as planned. However Knauz as graciously offered each of us a chance to get complimentary inspections by their cheif MINI mechanic and ask any of those questions that we’ve always wondered about. So this event has really changed from an open garage to more of a MINI tech Q&A. This could perfect for the folks who also want to do a tech spec before heading out to various track events for the summer or just want to get a free check-up and learn more about their MINI.
That said, this may be dissapointing to more than a few out there who had hoped for some quality shop time at great facilities. However I’d like to thank the folks at Knauz who are still more than willing to host us and provide these complimentary inspections. And of course any work that you would like to get done, they will certainly help set up an appointment and offer a discount. Knauz will also offer a 20% discount on most parts as well.
So, for all those that expressed interested, I’d like to ask you let us know if you’re still interested. We’ll be creating a loose schedule in the next couple of days
And for all those that would like to have some sort of CMMC Garage Day, we’re going to try to put something together very soon.
