Thanks Jack and Linda for putting on another great picnic.  Good weather, good food and good friends made for a nice day.  And thanks also to Ryan and Tracey for the pre-picnic drive, your efforts behind this were appreciated and we all had a nice drive to begin the day.  PS MINI rocks.
5 race wins, 2 in the rain. 2nd in ICSCC G Production Championship 2005 and 2006. Now I'm just gonna drive the MINI.

Sorry to have missed the drive and the picnic.  Looks like a fun time, and a great turnout of MINIs!
Hope everyone had fun - the weather held out. Thanks for capturing it all, Calvin. 
 
Dave, nice MITM shirt. Tongue
 
Cheers!

I'll second that. Thanks Jack and Linda for once again providing a great location and organizing a great picnic. Larry cooked me up a mighty fine burger and I especially enjoyed the secret bbq sauce. It's too bad this shindig only occurs once a year.

Steve and I had a blast as usual. Great company (motorers and MINIs), tasty food, and fun times! The mummy game was a riot. However, I'm not sure we won it fairly. Ashley was by far the best wrapped mummy there. LOL LOL

Glad I finally got to officially meet you Laurie (aka _Lo_). I'm happy you joined our MINI team even though your dad owns a Porsche. I'll be looking forward to this year's Porsche vs. MINI food drive challenge in December. Tell your dad, Larry Nelson, to watch out for us MINIs. We'll be in full force! Wink

Thanks for posting the pics and video Cal. I'm glad that Brenda was able to join us. It's always nice to look back on those crazy and fun times. 

Hope to see you all at the next event. Happy Motoring until then...

Haha, I was a pretty tightly bound mummy for sure. I think I'm going to make it a fashion statement :)

I know I'm a little late in posting my thanks to everyone for:

  • joining us for the picnic!
  • participating in the activities and socializing
  • bringing all the great food!!!
  • helping with both setup and cleanup!

Jack and I had a wonderful time and while I didn't get to visit with everyone as much as I would have liked it was a great day.

Thanks to all of you!  Clap
