Re: KC Mini/Iowa Joint Run - Update!

Do we have anyone to volunteer to lead a convoy for the KC club? Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not (NOT!) be able to lead the KC convoy this year. In fact, to my great disappointment, it appears at this point I won't be able to participate at all. This is an exhilarating event -- l...

Re: KCME/CIMC Joint Drive 5/14/16 (Saturday)

Anyone know about what time everybody gets back to KC? Basically if I'd have to be back by around 5:30, would the group be back by then? Or would I have to dip out a little early to get back by then? AND, is parting ways and leaving a little early if I need to allowed? Or is it somewhat of a club r...

Re: KCME/CIMC Joint Drive 5/14/16 (Saturday)

I am planning on going, and willing to lead a caravan up from KC again this year. This event is getting a lot of traction in the Central Iowa Club -- people are coming from across the state to join in. If I am going by myself, so be it, but if we do have some people wanting to go, I will be happy to...

Re: Roll Call!

It looks like the night in Sioux Falls is ours to do with what we want. Have they done that before? How does that work? Do we follow the route sheet for the day and check in somewhere when we get there then go off on our own? I'm just curious, the previous dates we attended were always structured. ...

Alright, 1 Motorer anyway. My current KC-based MINI has some breathing problems that will get fixed on Wednesday. But I will be riding shotgun in Buzz.

Still interested in more comments and feedback.

I'm not sensing a well-spring of passion around this event...but perhaps I am misjudging based on the very few comments we have received so far.

Just a note, the Mushroom Festival is on the 7th in Richmond. A great time can be had by all. :!: That event adds to the challenge, I think. May is such a great month weather-wise that committing two consecutive Saturdays on MINI events might be overkill. I'm OK if we want to skip a year. We could ...
