With Spring around the corner let’s get our MINI’s all spruced up! More details to follow but get it on the calendar and plan on joining us.
March 20th, 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM
Warrior Lanes, Waukee.
Join us, yet again, for another fun filled afternoon of bowling. Perhaps some ice cream afterwards at the DQ across the parking lot?
Participation will be a little different than in the past. You are allowed only 5 people per lane, whether they are bowling or not, meaning spectators would count. We have a limit of 25 people. Due to this restriction, and to ensure we have enough slots for the bowlers, please only RSVP if you are planning to bowl. And by no means think you have to know how to bowl. Everyone is welcome, regardless of age or ability. It’s not a competition so don’t count on a trophy or prize. It’s for fun, strictly for fun.
Cost is $8.25 per person; shoe rental is $3.75 plus tax.
RSPV deadline is midnight, Thursday, March 17th.

It’s the time of year to enjoy Jolly Holiday Lights with our MINI’s!!
The plan: Sunday, December 19th, 2021 at 5:15pm….
We will meet in the parking lot of the Altoona Cinemark Theater (2227 Adventureland Dr NW, Altoona). Jolly Holiday Lights starts at 5:30 so we can roll from the parking lot right over to the entrance and once there, we can line up and enter as a group. There’s plenty of space for us, in case we get split-up on the drive over. If you want to purchase tickets ahead of time, it’s a little less money, but the proceeds go to a good cause either way. If anyone wants to get a bite to eat beforehand, Culver’s is in the lot right next to the theater. We could stop in around 4:30 for an early supper. Nothing official, but it’s an option that’s really, REALLY close.
Hope to see many of your smiling faces there.
Mark your calendars for the Fall Colors Drive on Sunday, September 19th, hosted by Brad Bristow. We’ll meet at MINI of Des Moines for the drivers meeting at 12:45 PM. Departing at 1 PM to head south to Madison County. We’ll make a stop in the countryside and check out the Winterset Cidery at the end of the drive. Sounds interesting. Please RSVP on the Facebook event or emailing Laura or Brad by midnight on Tuesday, September 14. Let’s hope this year brings lots of color and if not, it’ll be just another great day spent with fellow MINIacs.
