Important Notice From Your Central Iowa MINI Club


Rob Melick, Regional Manager for MINI USA, will be the featured speaker at the club’s meeting tomorrow night.

The meeting will be TOMORROW, Sunday, April 7 at the Wig and Pen Restaurant in Ankeny. That’s located on the east side of US 69, directly opposite the main entrance to DMACC. We’ll get started at 5:00 p.m., and Rob will be presenting information on what’s new and upcoming in the MINI world.

As usual, we’ll order dinner from the Wig and Pen menu, and the restaurant will prepare individual bills for each of us. Rob’s presentation should take between 30 and 45 minutes, and he will leave sufficient time for questions and answers. In addition, Rob will have a new MINI with him that we can all drool over prior to dinner.

It would be great to have a large group of MINI enthusiasts and owners present to show Rob we’re growing and having fun in the process. Please RSVP and let us know that you’ll be able to attend so that we can plan the space within the room accordingly.

Hope to see everyone there tomorrow evening.

Sunday, June 16, 2013 (Father’s Day), Take Me Out to the Ball Game at Principal Park

Take Me Out to the Ball Game… for Father’s Day at Principal Park… to see the Iowa Cubs take on the Omaha Storm Chasers at 1:05 pm.

While it’s super fun to get together for driving events, it’s also nice to take a little time to get to know the folks behind the wheels – and those folding the maps –  of the other MINI Coopers, too.

The ballpark has been generous enough to set aside a special “MINIs parking only” area that afternoon so that we can show off our Motoring Buddies.

By the way: the MINI-only parking area will be open to all MINI Coopers, not just CIMC members, so if you’ve been sitting on the fence about joining, here’s a great chance to get meet us (and get primo parking at the same time).

Because the CIMC rate includes discounted ticket, parking and food, it is essential that all Club members interested RSVPs by April 7. Rates are related to the number of people interested in attending so grab your keys, your loved ones, and your iCubs foam finger and join us at the ball park.

This is sure to be a great way to spend a special day – and someone else gets to do the clean up.
