Exit0 2016-01

It’s almost beach weather, so let’s beat the crowds to the shore on the 2016 Exit 0 Rally.

Our rally sponsor, MINI of Mt Laurel, will provide a light breakfast and great MINI prizes.

Leg 1 of the rally takes us along twisty Pine Barren roads through quaint villages and breath-taking vistas to historic Batsto Village — —where you can explore the museum and the 19th century village to win MINI of Mount Laurel prizes.

For Leg 2, pack a lunch and bring a jacket as we head through more of South Jersey to have lunch at a Atlantic County Park, in Estell Manor.

Leg 3 takes us as far south in New Jersey as it gets —as we head to the Cape May Lighthouse and Bird Sanctuary. Be prepared to explore and win more MINI swag before motoring to dinner by the bay at the Harbor View - promptly at 5pm.

IMPORTANT: Once again we will be joining forces with MoMtL for the FOOD BANK of South Jersey! Every five food items you donate (non-perishable and canned) will earn you a raffle ticket, so clean out your pantries for a good cause. Need ideas? Here’s a list of their most-needed items.

Date: Saturday, May 21
Meetup Time: 8:20 am
Driver’s Meeting: 8:45 am
Depart: First group 9:00 am. Second group 9:10
Meet Location: MINI of Mt. Laurel, 1311 Rt. 73 N, Mt. Laurel, NJ [MAP]
