Cruise and Drive August 18th

WRAPUP: We left McD’s under cloudy skies with 15 MINIs and headed to Suicide Circle. It’s an experience you have to try.. even just once. We roll by the local airport and zip through a few nice little roads. Along the way, we pick up a 16th MINI, then lose one off the back before arriving at our rest stop near Ft Sheridan. While there, we pick up a cabrio and trek to our final destination – the golf range. Along the way, we parade through Sheridan Rd, the Glen, and turn heads at an VW Auto-X at OCC.

Free bucket of balls and mini golf for everyone!!! Thanks to everyone who came out for a roll in the ‘burbs.

Gimmick Rally – July 22nd

WRAPUP: About 20 cars attended this rally on a beautiful Sunday morning. We were given route sheets, and needed to solve clues for points and to determine many route directions. Participants lined up, and left at 2 minute intervalls.

After a couple hours of touring some fantastic back roads, getting lost, backtracking, chatting with an old lady selling a couch (but it won’t fit in my car.. What, you live in your car?), we gathered in Delafield for a fine meal and scoring the results.

Congratulations to Tom and Caren for winning the first and second place prizes, and thanks to the organizers for putting on such a fun event.
