Iowa Chapter to Visit MINI of Des Moines 9am Saturday April 21st – RSVP requested

Iowa Chapter to Visit MINI of Des Moines 9am Saturday April 21st – RSVP requested

Most Iowa Chapter members are aware that BMW owns MINI and given the past few years’ transition of the MINI models to the latest third generation F series, MINIs are even more BMW-like in their composition and features…yet still retain their famous and totally enjoyable “go kart handling”.  I know…I own one and drive MINI models regularly.

The Iowa Chapter has accepted an invitation from Chris Ruggeri, Motoring Manager, MINI of Des Moines, to provide us an overview of the MINI lineup. Of particular interest will be his comparison of the recently updated Mini Countryman All4 with BMW’s own X1 models..a bit of “compare and contrast” discussion.  No sales pressure; just an opportunity to learn about MINIs and enjoy time with fellow club members and drive some great vehicles…so “What’s Not to Like?”

We’ll see a variety of MINI models and have the opportunity to ask questions and later, get the chance to test drive MINIs.  We’re all “car crazy” so take this opportunity to learn more about BMW’s MINI lineup.  Breakfast pizza, donuts and beverages will be provided.  Please let Rick Talbot know by April 16th if you’re planning to attend so breakfast needs can be determined (rickminir59@gmail.com or 515-782-1429).  Hope to see you there!

Spring Drive 2018 – April 14

Spring Drive 2018 – April 14

Yes, mother nature promises that Spring is just around the corner, and will arrive just in time for our annual spring drive on April 14!  So, time to dust off the  ultimate driving machine and enjoy a fun filled day exploring Southeastern Iowa, and socializing with your fellow BMW enthusiasts.

We will launch from BMW of Des Moines at 8:45AM (arrive there NLT 8:30 please), or you can join the drive at our first major stop at Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery in Swisher, IA, at 11:00AM that day if more convenient.  Our route will take us from Des Moines west to Swisher, then southwest to the Quad Cities, then along the Mississippi river southwest to Kalona, and home from there.  At Cedar Ridge we will be treated to a tour of their ever expanding award winning operation followed by a group lunch from their menu of great wood fired gourmet pizza’s, and small plate palate pleasers, then in the Quad Cities, we will get a tour of the recently updated BMW of Davenport facilities, and finally in historic Kalona we will have a “to die for” dinner at the very popular Tuscan Moon restaurant featuring delicious Italian/American entrees, plus burgers/sandwiches, salads, and even great vino at your choice.

It promises to be a fun day, and an outstanding opportunity to reconnect with your old friends and make some new ones, all while driving the scenic, relaxing two-laned back roads (all paved!) across Southeastern Iowa in your prize Beemer.  The more the merrier so please be sure to join us if you possibly can!!   Map and Route
