Let’s welcome the Gen 3 to the MINI family with an F56 Launch to Lunch!
Date: Sunday, March 23
Location: The Chestnut Hill West Septa Station on Evergreen Ave. [MAP]
Meetup Time: 9:15 a.m.
Drivers’ Meeting: 9:45 a.m.
First group departs at 10:00 a.m.
Estimated Arrival at MINI of the Main Line: 11 a.m.
Note: It may be hard to find the start point using your GPS. Try using the address 40 W Evergreen Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118. It is located across the street. Just look for the Septa sign and the MINIs. If you turn onto Evergreen from Germantown, the Septa station will be on your right. (For those of you who have attended a PhillyMINI Meet, this is the station where we make our first stop.)
The drive will last approximately 50 minutes and is approximately 20 miles.
Rally goers will receive $10 vouchers that can be used at the food trucks upon their arrival.
If you wish to meet us there (and not attend the rally), we kindly ask that you [I]make use of the free parking on Montgomery Avenue and the surrounding streets[/I]. While Main Line is making room for us in their parking lot, it’s very hard not to create a traffic jam while parking 30 cars at once. So please be kind and park off-site if you intend to meet us there.
What to bring:
- A snack or a bottle of water for the car
- Your FRS radio
- Cash for buttons and clings (if you want them)
- Cash for the food trucks (rally goers will receive a $10 voucher)
2013 Members of PhillyMINI will not have to sign a liability waiver to participate. Non-members will have to sign a liability waiver. Anyone under the age of 18 who intends to drive in the rally must appear with a parent or guardian to sign the waiver on your behalf.
