The marriage of salty and sweet is one that shouldn’t work, but magically and deliciously does. We can’t get enough of it. Too much sugar is overly intense and too much salt simply tastes terrible, but when you mix the two, the combination is heavenly.

So join us on this twisted journey starting with donuts, whisk onto beef jerky, churn for some ice cream, pop over for some popcorn and burn out for candy!

Lets go Renegade! Leave your MINI at home. We’re taking out our other cars!

The hosts for this twist on tradition have pieced together a Not Normal route of twists, straights, and as-close-to-off-road as is comfortable for both Jeeps and jalopies.

Okay. So how does this work?

Bring your other car. It can be a car, truck, motorcycle, or any other road-worthy and legally motoring car. If your household is MINI only, this may be a great chance to show a MINIless friend what we’re all about by riding along in their car. Rent something you’ve always wanted to try for a day. Or post in the forum thread and find a seat in a non-MINI with a friend. We don’t care what you drive, it just can’t be a MINI.

So we’re hoping you’ll join us on this NON-MINI rally and still enjoy it as if it was.

When: Saturday, July 15th
Meetup: 8:00 am
Location: Wawa, 721 Naamans Creek Road, Chadds Ford, PA [Map]
Lunch: PJ Wellingtons, 853 E Lancaster Ave, Downingtown, PA 19335 [Map]

What to Bring:
Money for lunch
Water and/or snacks for the drive
FRS radios

RSVP here.

Please indicate what kind of car you are bringing and the number in your party for lunch.
