MINI takes Potomac, "the Tryout"

How does the "Twistrict of Columbia" and "MINI takes Potomac" sound to you. Combining the fun of 2 evens: As we motoring through the hidden twisties of DC, and finishing up the day by going on board of a deluxe catamaran, and the feeling of the crisp air and stunning view of Washington DC, as the leaves changing its colors is part of the fall beauty on the Potomac. :)
We'll be meeting at Starbucks Coffee Mid Pike Plaza @
4.30pm, on Rockville Pike and Old Georgetown Rd., next to Bank of America. After hangin' out for a little bit, we will caravan to the pier in DC for"DC Habor Cruises".
http://www.dcharborcr... We should arrive the pier at 6.30pm. Please booked your ticket prior to the date, select sightsee "DC Twilight Cruise", cost is $24 for adult. The cruise lasts 2 hours, there are snacks, drinks for sale on the boat.

    Change of plans. Rauna was in a bad car accident earlier this week (other car not MINI). She's doing fair, but can't do meet-up today. I have 2 tickets for the boat tonight free to whoever can use them Contact me directly at [masked]

    For friends who may have other commitment earlier on the day, we will meet at 4.30pm and will not roll out before 5pm. That should be plenty of time to come and join the fun !!! :)

  • Maxicooper

    We're planning to use DC Habor Cruise, http://dcharborcruises.com/
    Their catamaran is really nice and good size. And the parking is very convenience. :)

    The 26th works for me, too!

  • Alicyn D.

    If the timing works out I'll be there

    Ali, I think you should be fine for the run, as well as the cruise. The run won't start until later on in the afternoon (after 4pm).
    And a nice motoring and a relaxing cruise would be good after having a long meeting, wouldn't it? :)

    That's the day of the DCMM Annual meeting so I may be able to make the cruise, but probably not the run.

  • Maxicooper

    The cruise season will be ending by the end of the month. So the option that we have now is a twi-light cruise @ 7pm on Sunday, September 26.
    We can set up a Twistrict of Columbia run in the late after noon and follow by the cruise.
    Please let me know what you all think. :)

    Funny, I woke up this morning remebering a dream...that the boat cruise was in Philadelphia! This sounds like another great adventure, but I think it's too far and too long of a day to leave my dog. It gets quite pricey to board him for a weekend. I work the day before and PhillyMINI has it's annual Night Owl/Full Moon Rally the night before going into the wee hours. Maybe next year!

  • Jennifer K.

    sounds like a great idea

    September 9, 2010

  • Maxicooper

    Now, we have just to wait for the response from the boat company for the availability on the day. :)

    24th sounds good!

    that date works for me

    September 8, 2010

  • Maxicooper

    I'm checking on the cruise schedule, at the mean time, how does Sun, Oct 24th sound?

    September 8, 2010

  • Susan W.

    PhillyMINI's mountain weekend trip is Oct 9 & 10. I would need to know very soon the date of this trip so I can make arrangements at work and for the dog. I'll understand if you have it the same weekend.

    Avoid the weekend of the HR MINI Fall Colors Run of Oct 15-17 and I bet there'll be a few HR MINI guys show up!

    Chris, you sure are a glutton for punishment. Sounds like a great idea. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

    September 7, 2010

  • Deb P.

    Sounds like a winner! I'm in.

    September 7, 2010

  • Susan W.

    I think this sounds like a grand plan. Please check the PhillyMINI.org forum calendar so as to not overlap, if possible. Any idea of a date yet?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
