MINI of Peabody 2009 Spring Rally

Another year, more rain – time for the MINI of Peabody Spring Poker Rally; rather than drive my Q5, Brig kindly loaned me a pre-owned MCSc – although with lots of rain, I kept the roof closed!
Lots of MINIs arrived (about 40 in total), and we gathered together to listen to Joel’s driver speech, and check out the route; and then we’re off, waved by Hrach:

 

On the road, we started with heavy rain, but things improved as time went by. On the route, we had three “poker pit-stops” to get a card (and two more cards on arrival back at the dealership); It even got dry enough to drop the top!
The route was pretty up in New Hampshire, especially along the coast along Ocean Boulevard:

 

Once back at the dealership, we also had a chance to look over a nice 1970 Mini Innocenti, from Italy as recently as 2002 (and previously owned by much-missed Dan McDonald):


Many thanks to MINI of Peabody and their staff, for creating another great day 🙂
