NorCal MINIs' Friday Upcoming Event Reminders

Monster Sierra Passes Run Tomorrow, October 9, 2010

There is still time to sign up! We will traverse more twisties, and see more fall colors, than you can shake a stickshift at!!!

Meet up at 8:00 a.m for breakfast (we will leave promptly at 9:00 a.m. if you don't want breakfast) at Perko's Cafe & Bakery, 824 Mono Way, Sonora, CA. We will then journey over the Sonora Pass; up I-395, up the Monitor Pass to lunch in Markleeville. From Markleeville we will skirt the Luther Pass and head west through the Carson Pass to dinner at Teresa's Place Italian Dinners, 1235 Jackson Gate Road, Jackson, CA.

In the event the mountain passes remain closed, due to an early season snowstorm that hit last Monday, we have planned an alternative route that will make this the Monster Sierra Foothills Backroads Run.

Bring a co-driver to share the ride. If you like to drive the twisties this is the run for you.
RSVP to your member email calendar invitation or by emailing us at Make sure to bring your FRS Radio.
