WRAPUP: Another incredible event!! We had about 30 MINIs participate in a zip around a bunch of neighborhood cul-de-sacs, interrupted by a short storm-burst in the middle of the drive.. The weather cleared up nicely by the time we arrived at Superdawg.. An additional 20 or so MINIs (and Mini) joined us after we arrived. Great eats and a chance to hang out with new and old club members. Special thanks to Arnie and Lena for the route and event planning, and for Superdawg for hosting us!!
