Drive-in Drive 08/16

WRAPUP:  Beautiful weather brought out about a dozen cars out for a scenic and fun drive around the Kane County area.  We had a blast looping the industrial park traffic circles as well as some nice tree lined twisty and hilly bits.  We met a few more MINI friends at dinner.  Everyone who attended the Drive-In movie had a great time  😉

Big thanks to Paul for the route planning.  It was unfortunate that work plans got in the way of his chance to enjoy the ride.

Come on out and join us for a drive, dinner and a drive-in movie on August 16th. Enjoy a movie outdoors under the stars at the Cascade Drive-in, one of the few remaining drive-in theaters in the area.
