Anybody got any more of those ribbon fries from lunch?! Those were tasty .. the wine from later one was pretty great too! Strangely, we didn't buy any wine at all. I'm curious how I passed from tasting, drinking a full glass or two to leaving without buying any. Whoops!

It was great to see everyone and I'm glad we were able to make it for the day. The weather was perfect and a great send-off to summer. :)

Thank you Wild family for organizing and leading and sharing the wine with us. Everything worked out great to do the one day but we wished we could have seen the second day scenery.

I don't recommend driving back at night if you don't like driving in the dark. That was probably the darkest long stretch (2+ hours) of roadway I have ever driven. Highway 97 was really interesting as it became heavily smoked in at the higher elevations. I have driving lights on Alsatia because I like how they looked but actually got to use them this drive! They really helped and we made it back in good time and safe.

That was a great drive and great weather. Sorry we couldn't do day 2, but the Sounders match wasn't to be missed. 

Thanks Anne and Martin!

Thanks Martin and Anne for organizing this fun run and for the great late summer weather! 
No MINI pics, just the one below.  It is not a bunch of ufo's but the lights underneath the bathroom countertop.  I just had to find out what was going on with that ...  different, but nice rooms.

5 race wins, 2 in the rain. 2nd in ICSCC G Production Championship 2005 and 2006. Now I'm just gonna drive the MINI.

I had a fabulous time! Big smile  It's unfortunate I only had one day to hang out with y'all, but it was a blast even though it was short. It was rather lonely driving the 3+ hours home after lunch. 

I didn't take many photos nor did I drink any wine since I was the soul driver. What few pics I posted are on the PSMINI Facebook group page:" rel="nofollow -

Thanks for putting together a fun MINI event Martin! Thumbs Up It was very well organized.  Let's do it again next year.

This was our first rally with this club and it was great fun.... very well organized and great accommodations - all very well put together and well thought through for everyone.  Had to cut it short on the second day to get back for the Sounders game - however still had a wonderful time -  Thank you everyone.
