Holiday Party 2017 - Recap

 #HolidayParty #NorCalMINIs - What a way to wrap up the year!

Thank you to all of you who made it out to the PJs & pancake breakfast at East Bay MINI.  The morning started early with the preparation of pancake batter.  Thank you to 2018 officers & directors who helped set up for the event.  A huge thank you to East Bay MINI for hosting us at the dealership.  

We had 45 people to attend the breakfast.  As a group we gathered a lot of toys for the kids.

272 lbs of food was delivered to Redwood Empire Food Bank on Friday, December 15, 2017.

Donated $195 to Sonoma Humane Society.

This completes my year as your President. I had a great time planning each of the the events and had fun motoring with everyone who came out this year.  It's been a blast!

Pinnacles National Park Run Recap

MINIs Everywhere say it all about our drive to Pinnacles National Park.  We had a great turnout this past Saturday as we motored some back roads parallel to CA-101.  We had a total of 32 cars and I lost track of the number of people at 43, so there might have been more people than 43. We were joined by Silicon Valley Minis and a MOASF Mini.  It was great to have new members join us too on this run. Pinnacles National Park was a little disappointing as we were turned away at the entrance due to the park being full.   Boo! :-(

While we had a great, fun run, it was also a charity fundraiser.  We gathered $335.  We donated 1/2 to each of the following charities:
Great job everyone!

Thanks Johnnie C. for the collage picture that captures all the MINIs. As I said before MINIs everywhere.

Just because the park turned us away didn't mean our fun stopped.  We ended up gathering together at San Benito County Fair Grounds for lunch.  Other than a few RV's parked there, we had the place to ourselves.

Thank you to everyone who came out for my last run as your 2017 NorCal MINIs President.  I've had a great year planning the majority of the runs this year and creating a-MINI-zing Race for your enjoyment. (See the Madonna Inn - San Luis Obispo Run Details for a recap of the winners).

Our last official NorCal MINIs event for 2017 will be our Holiday Party gathering at East Bay MINI on December 11, 2017.  Please join me, as we focus on others, while we reminisce on this year's runs, say adios to our current officers & directors and welcome in the new 2018 officers & directors. Details are posted on website and email invites have been sent.  Be sure to RSVP.
