Starved Rock November 1st

November 1st will be the date of our annual drive out to Starved Rock State Park.

WRAPUP: Fantastic Fall weather brought out a crowd of about 50 MINIs for a fun back roads drive.  A short stop at a kart racing track along with a photo-op on the course was a cool added bonus.

Huge thanks to Matt and Sylwia for the route planning and for leading the cruise!!
