    April 2nd, NEO MINIacs will be meeting at the Costco in Boston Heights. Plan is to leave around 11am and take some winding roads thru the Cuyahoga Valley National Park (to get the dust off some of those MINI's escaping hibernation), and head towards Grandpa's Cheesebarn in Norton.

    Afterwards, for those who want some wine with your cheese, we'll be heading to The Winery at Wolf Creek that's about 1/2 mile up the street. The entire drive should take around 90 minutes.

    If you're coming from out of town let me know so we don't leave without you!

    I can only wish I'd be doing your drive but I live almost 200 miles SW of you.:(

    Wouldn't help if we pumped you full of wine and sent you back home either :lol:

    Wine and cheese? Sounds like a "Californians" MINI gathering. :D

    Does sound good, though. :Thumbsup:

    The weather for Sunday is showing 61 and partly cloudy - there may be a few convertible tops that come down :cornut:

    We have a guy who takes everyone's pictures/video's and combines them into 1 - I'll be sure to post up a link to that once he has it complete.

    Yesterday was incredible - we had 35 MINI's come out!

    My awesome wife and another member continuously jumped ahead of the pack to post up and snap pictures and take video. I'll try to get some more pictures to share as well!

    That looks like Sand Run Rd. It's been a while since I splashed through there. :D

    You guys had a nice turnout.

    34 MINI's came on the drive - and had 4 waiting for us at the finale.

    The Friday before the event it poured rain and Sand Run was actually closed. With no rain Saturday and Sunday it was re-opened.

    Our first Sunday in May event may be a little smaller due to dragon slaying.
