We will be joining forces with the Milwaukee MINIs and other area clubs for a fun group drive on some twisty Wisconsin back roads. We have moved our traditional early spring drive date back a little bit to Saturday April 16th to hopefully catch a bit of warmer weather.
WRAPUP: Rain, cold, drizzle, and even a bit of snow.. Not the best of conditions, but we still attracted 25 or so MINIs (and one Honda Del Sol) from the Chicagoland and Milwaukee areas to cruise some fun back roads. The wet conditions made the turns a bit more challenging, and a good time was had by all. We then stopped off for a late lunch at the Bristol 45 Diner. Huge thanks again to the Milwaukee MINIs for joining us, Pat for the route planning, Cherissa for the lunch coordination, and the Bristol 45 Diner for being able to accommodate our crowd.

The Windy City BMW club has invited members of our club to participate in several of their upcoming schools at their club member rates. These are incredibly well run events, and you are sure to learn a bunch about how you and your MINI perform at their limits. Knowlegeable instructors (including some from our club) help make your experience safe and fun. These classes traditionally fill up very fast so check out the info below and sign up ASAP.
With so many people attending events, it is difficult to remember everyones name.
We now have new club name badges!!
These attractive, high quality badges will be engraved with your name and “member since” date, and have both?pin clasp and??spring clip attachments.
On Saturday April 16th we will be joining forces with the Milwaukee MINIs and enjoying some fun roads in the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin area.
Full details are not yet ready, but our ending destination will be a late lunch in Bristol Wisconsin.
Also, plans are in place for our Spring Drive on March 19th and hotel information is posted for our New Glarus overnighter on May 21 and 22nd
Here is the hotel info in advance for our overnight trip to New Glarus on May 21st and 22nd.
We will have drive meetup and time details as the event gets closer.
WRAPUP: Sunny spring weather made for an excellent drive!! 35 MINIs of all colors and styles met up for the start. Lots of new and potential members, and lots of old friends. We headed out for a 40 or so mile drive around the western suburbs on lots of nice twisty back roads. We parked up at the top of a parking garage for a short photo op, and then went on to enjoy a nice lunch at The Filling Station.
Huge thanks to Paul and Barbara for all the planning for this event!!
