Once again, to recap for Sunday, we are going to St. Simon's Island. We are meeting at Starbucks at 10am, and plan to arrive on St. Simon's by 12 for lunch at the Sandcastle Cafe & Grill. We will be taking Hwy 17 south, instead of I-95. Hope to see you there!

First off, I just want to give a long overdue thank you to everyone that helped out and participated in Savannah’s portion of The Great Ice Cream Run. The event was a huge success with a total of 42 MINIs!!!!! Our parade down I-95 and through downtown went smoothly, and a massive amount of ice cream was consumed by all. This wouldn’t have been possible without the marvelous effort from Leopold’s Ice Cream, The Creative Coast, Sunshine MINIs, MINI of Charleston, and of course Murray Wilson and the Coastal MINIs. Thanks SO MUCH!!!!!!!
If you want to see how the rest of The Great Ice Cream Run went, or photos of the Savannah portion, check out Ian's GB MINI blog, Murmini.com, or The Great Ice Cream Run website. If you have pictures of your own that you want to share, please comment with a link to your gallery.
The Great Ice Cream Run generated a lot of interest in our local Monthly Motoring events. If you had fun at there, come join us on the first Sunday of each month for some MINI motoring fun. Next month we will be meeting at the usual time and place on Sunday July 1st. We are planning on going south for a Run to Jekyll Island. The routes, schedule and restaurant for lunch will be posted soon, so stay tuned. I hope you can join us!
Cheers and Happy Motoring!

With our first Sunday meeting coming right up, we will be meeting at our usual time and place, to finalize our plans for the Savannah leg of The Great Ice Cream Run.
We will be finalizing the route for the Parade of MINIs and getting the last few details on place. We will then run the route to make sure we are all familiar with it.
With less than a week to go we are all looking forward to this very special event that we are honored to be hosting, right here in Savannah.
