WRAPUP: We had a smaller than usual crowd of 13 due to the cold weather, but the racing was intense. A tight battle in one heat between Sylvia, Allie, and Peter had everyone on their feet till the final lap. Martin took fast time and first place overall, followed by Steve and Kirk.

November 3rd will be the date for our annual end of season drive out to Starved Rock State Park.
This event was renamed the Road Warrior Rock Run in 2016 to honor longtime club and board member Conrad Alexander.
WRAPUP: Another drive to Starved Rocks is in the books.. The predicted rain held off till late afternoon, and the fall colors were all in force (as was the crowds at the park) We had about 30 MINIs out for the day, with many on their first club drive.

The Halloween Techno Zombie Geo Cache Hunt!
is an all ages family friendly geo caching style scavenger hunt in Palatine, that uses digital and traditional technology to send players into participating businesses and various outdoor locations for an interactive fun activity. We also have the players do light community service work en route.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday, October 27th, 9am till 7pm
The players are free to start, stop and re-start their game at any point. Their goal is to get as many locations as possible in as short a time as possible (safely and uneventfully of course)
