    Anyone going over? I didn't attend the last couple of months due to conflicting old fart commitments. Heard through the grapevine no one else went either.

    Last months was my first one, including me there were 4 minis that showed up.

    I'm not making this months due to prior commitments though. Unfortunately, non-mini related commitments.

    Once Summer is over and Fall is winding down, people will get stir crazy again...enough to start going to the Donutfest again. Too many people have just too many other things going on right now to attend. Besides...just how many MINI owners are left anymore?

    Count them up & let us know, the math is too complex for me. If you bring all yours over that would be 3. Yep lots of folks have moved on, life goes on & things change. MINI took the option of upgrading away so more than a few have moved on to something else that's fun. We are all car guys & that should be enough to hold a group of friends together.

    One might think that being friends and car guys would hold the Donutfest together, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Francie will NEVER drive in Columbus and my dog doesn't know how to drive, so that leaves me with 1 MINI and THAT won't make much of an attendance difference. I REFUSE to tow the other 2 behind my car for the same reason Francie refuses to drive in Columbus on that frenzied road called I-270, and, you can forget about us driving over via SR 161...yech.

    I work all week....

    Weekends arrive and I'm most likely cutting the grass or working down at the shop (if there isn't some shindig in the Short North that has traffic snarled up)..

    I also try to spend quality time with the family on weekends...

    Sometimes it's hard to find time to break away for a donut munch...

    Chuck, the senior center shuttle bus doesn't go near Columbus. Besides, you're only as old as you feel and I don't feel old at 71.5. I'm not a fast driver, but I'm a good driver and I have nice MINIs. I just don't like driving on "that" road.

    For anyone interested, a group is still meeting for donuts, drives, get-togethers and events. We are not checking in here because it's always the same type of comments.

    Awwwww...DANG...I guess I have been living in a delusionary world all these years. I "thought" M/A was a forum...you know...a place where people could make comments.

    When was the last time the group had a drive, get-together, or an event? The only thing going on [when it DOES go on] is the monthly DonutFest.

    I feel sad if said group is the one started by Nick. Guess some will never learn...

    P.S. not trying to start anything...just making a comment...;-)
