June 29-July 1, 2004 - Rockford, IL
Tuesday: The Meet opened with bright sun and blue skies, and Mini and MINI owners arriving to enjoy the gathering.
Wednesday: The autocross was held at Blackhawk Farms Raceway. It was a beautiful, grassy, and scenic venue, well suited to hanging out and enjoying all the cars. We all enjoyed the sunshine, camaraderie, and an excellent picnic lunch.
Thursday: We were all back at the Clocktower Inn for vendor displays, the Funkana, and the Rally, plus general hanging-out. The Team Event took place in the evening. Today we got our first taste of Midwest humidity, even though the "locals" called it a mild day.
Friday: The last chance for visiting each other's cars and the vendor displays, with the major event being the Concours. Friday evening we all cleaned up for the Awards Banquet, then said our good-byes to another great Mini Meet.
