Great Ice Cream Run Countdown

Posted by murmini Tue, 05 Jun 2007 22:35:00 GMT

Its been a busy week - how ever much planning you do, the last few days always seem to get hectic. With only about three days to go... things are really taking shape.

All the final details are posted on the local Savannah MINI club, Coastal MINIS and the fun will begin in Savannah late afternoon at the Best Western Hotel, 1 Gateway Blvd East at the junction of 204 and I-95.  Cars from The Great Ice Cream Run along with members of Florida's Sunshine MINIs, sponsored MINI owners from MINI of Charleston, and of course of course the Savannah Coastal MINIs members will congregate in preparation for the parade to downtown Savannah for a final gathering out side Leopold's Ice Cream. The end of East Broughton Street will be closed and so there will be qute a showing of vehicles.

If you have a MINI, bring it... if you don't come along anyway as there will be lots of fun for all and of course, plenty of ice cream!

Sunday the 10th, we hot the road driving to Statesville - North Carolina, Staunton - Virginia, Frackville - Pennsylvania, Sturbridge - Massachusetts, Rockland - Maine and finally arriving in Bar Harbor - Maine on June the 15th.

Those of you wishing to follow the events can check back here for daily postings and we will be tracking one of the cars on the run using this great piece of technology from Co-Pilot Live to show our daily progress. You can check it... here.

    How did all this come about?

    The idea was spawned I believe on MINI Takes The States last year where the gathering for meals was a great social event for many. It was to be a summer event so Ice Cream was the food! Robyn and Alli from North East MINI kicked the idea into gear the latter part of last year and like many things MINI it grew legs (or wheels).

    Hum pretty interesting stuff. THe club I belong to has some events but I’m usually busy or have way toooo many HoneyDos that weekend.

    I fixed that for the MINIs IN THE MOUNTAIN event. She’s going as my employee. I do wish my club did more charity stuff. My lovely wife isn’t a car nut and hate fast driving to boot. =;¬(

    Have fun say hello to my friend Ian and mark Vogler if he’s attending.

    My name is Billy and I reside in the Savannah Area. I just returned from picking up another classic Mini Cooper from the ports today and someone stopped me and told me about an Ice Cream run. I was wondering how I can meet up with the tour and tag along into savannah. I have 2 right hand drive mini coopers from England. I think it would be fun so if someone could call me before tomorrow, I would appreiciat it xxx.xxxx Thanks,Billy
