WRAPUP: Perfect weather for a perfect MINI event.. We had 10 MINIs meet up at Knauz MINI and caravan out to Milwaukee to join up with 25 or so additional cars, about 75 people total. Everyone drove into the park together, and settled in after some re-positioning from the friendly parking lot staff. We had some visting time and a fantastic catered meal for most of us, and a few packed their own for tailgating. We headed into the game, and the Cubs even won with a late in the game score of 1-0.
Huge thanks to Theresa and Wade for working on all the arrangements for such a wonderful day, Rivers Edge Catering for the great food, and to Knauz MINI for hosting the Chicago meetup location.

WRAPUP: We had about a dozen MINIs head out for a 20 mile scenic backroads drive, and arrived together at the Micro Car show. Several CMMC members were displaying their MINIs as well as other very cool cars. Almost 400 Micro and Mini cars of all shapes, sizes, and conditions were on display. One group travelled all the way from California along the old Route 66 drive. Volo museum also had a large number of much larger cars for sale inside, with price tags from the low thousands up to a Corvette valued at over $100,000. This was truly an amazing show and a bunch of amazing cars.
Huge thanks to Arnie and Lena for being amongst the small group of people that has spent the past 4 years organizing and planning to make this event as spectacular as it was!!

WRAPUP: We had a small bunch of 3 MINIs zipping through some fun back roads out to Raceway woods, where we met up with and additional 2 cars out for a picnic lunch on a warm but nice day. Three dogs were also lucky enough to participate and enjoy the hiking trails.
We ate lots of encased meats of various kinds (except for the vegitarians), visited and enjoyed each others company, and later explored the forest preserves looking for parts of the historic race track. There was a daring MINI rescue of some hikers who wandered a bit too far away and needed transportation back to the picnic area. Spirits were revived with a bit of water and some ice.. A great event at a fun location!!
