Open House 2012

October 13, 2012

We had a perfect Autumn day this year, which is pretty unusual around here - beautiful sunny not-too-warm blue skies, a crisp cool breeze, and lots of Minis! We had around 40 Minis come in, several hadn't been here before, and many more enthusiastic Mini owners (and wanna-be's!). Big thanks to Nick Upton for providing coffee and donuts, as well as his father Verdis Upton for an outstanding job on the grill! We all had a great time, and hope you did as well; we look forward to seeing you all here again next year!

Here's a link to Norm Nelson's photo album of the event!
