May Ozark Weekend Run
« on: February 14, 2018, 08:53:06 PM »
Our own John Styers is planning a weekend run in May, all are welcome!

Hey fellow Mini Owners!

Wanted to let you know that my buddy, Russ Amos and I are planning an Ozarks weekend drive for May 11-13...yes, that is Motherís Day weekend.  While we are planning this on behalf of the Midwest Se7ens group, it is open to other clubs/drivers with a passion for the Arkansas/Missouri back roads.

Each day will include a fun run that will return us to the hotel in the early afternoon (2ish), however, plenty of opportunities to head back out in the late afternoon if one so desires.

Thursday Arrival to Mountain Home, AR
Friday 9am Departure for South Loop run, including Push Mountain Road
Saturday 9am Departure for North Loop run, including Peel Ferry
Sunday...optional run through Push Mountain Road and head home

Host hotel is the Ramada Inn,1127 Hwy 62 E, Mountain Home, AR 72653; (870-425-9191); we are working a group rate now.  Rack rate right now is $69

I'll be there with my MINI/Mini

Provided my mini is on the road and I'm not working I'll be there.  Or if it's not perhaps I bring the rx7.

There will be a variety of Brit cars there, drive whatever you like.

The run is also posted to the Lawrence British car club so I expect a lot of Triumphs and MGs too along with a few Super 7/Caterhams.....maybe the Frite will show up? That would be fun!

I also posted to the KC MINI club, so there should be a showing of Binis too if you wanted to drive the JCW, or have Jen do so.

That part of the country is noted for it's terrific twisty, up and downhill roads, anyone who hasn't done a run there should plan to come.....
