WRAPUP: What a fabulous event!! MINI of Grand Rapids was a great host, and Chicago area people filled close to half the 30+ cars that convoyed out to St. Ignace. Friday night was fun to just hang out and watch MINIs cruising the area in all directions. Early Saturday, we gathered in a field and took off for a 15 mile drive thru some scenic back roads culminating with a drive over the Mackinac bridge. A party was held afterwards with plenty of time to check out hundreds of cool MINIs. We were a little short of the world record, but with 846 1/2 cars (the half was a trailer) it was the largest single gathering of MINIs in North America. We did get a record of the most cars playing a song on car horns, and the prize for the best dressed MINI was won by CMMC member Sean!!

WRAPUP: Close to 50 MINIs attended this spectacular event!! The predicted rainy weather held off for the whole evening. We took a winding neighborhood drive along some twisty roads, and looped a couple area cul-de-sacs.. We filled up the back area at Superdawg for a fun hang out, listening to DJ tunes by Source 1 DJ Services . Huge thanks to Superdawg for hosting our club, and Arnie and Lena for the planning/coordination work!!
WRAPUP: We had almost 20 MINIs show up on a cold drizzly day.. Ram enabled many options.. several people came back for additional choices after seeing how cool they looked and worked on other cars. A BBQ lunch followed, and a fun time was had by all. Huge thanks to Ram from http://www.bmwminicoding.com/ for driving out from Madison and working all day setting options, and to Paul for organizing this event and doing all the cooking!!
