As of right now, it's the usual.. MEET @ Webers and motor on up into the Bracebridge/Gravenhurst areas.

Working on some additional extras, outside of the Cranberry festival.

Webers is world famous and is located just north of Orillia
Webers Restaurant
8844 11 Hwy S
Orillia, ON L3V 6H3
https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Webers+Restaurant,+8844+11+Hwy+S,+Orillia,+ON+L3V+ 6H3/Torrance,+ON/@44.8495959,-79.5801793,11z/data=!4m19!4m18!1m10!1m1!1s0x4d2aa6784cfe299f:0x75 9e8003df69dd60!2m2!1d-79.39887!2d44.694016!3m4!1m2!1d-79.4239566!2d44.8635411!3s0x4d2a99e7e8f0d51d:0x88a 8beec7e206cb3!1m5!1m1!1s0x4d2a8d3626a5f243:0x2ebaf b7f6b5b20c7!2m2!1d-79.570613!2d44.991102!3e0

We plan to depart from there from 1030-1100 and drive north to Southwood Rd. (the Rattler), once we arrive at the other side, (Torrance) we try to get a group shot at the ball diamond just over the rail tracks on 169.

From the ball diamond, there are some other plans in the works. Details hopefully to follow soon.

I'll be heading up the convoy from MINI Vaughan West.

Be there at 8:00 AM as we'll be leaving for Weber's at 8:30 AM sharp.

There are also usually other groups meeting up at Oakville, Downtown and Durham.

Too early to say for me. I usually love the Rattler, especially in the Fall, so it looks good. Maybe we'll find another F56 or even an F55 (Still waiting for MINI to put out a four door Cabrio) for the drive this year.

Where will the Oakville group be meeting and when?

Usually groups meet up at the dealer in that area so Oakville would be Budd's MINI Oakville. I'll reach out to Karin to see if anything is in the works since she usually heads up that group.

I may just make the trip south, only to return "home" to Muskoka afterwards.

I reside in Port Carling.

A bit off-topic, but it seems Mini's have gotten rather popular all of a sudden. Many in Muskoka were seen "in-the-wild" this summer. :-)

I didn't vote, didn't want to skew the numbers should I fail to attend. LoL

Hi MCSrallye ... I'm assuming your convo will be traveling on the 400 NB....if so what time would you pass by Bradford?

We will be, though we can't be 100% on the time. If you know a ramp with a pull off and some good sight lines you can probably pick us or one of the other convoys up.

i haven't been active with the group all summer. I'll be there this fall. Coming from Oshawa, maybe the Durham crew can meet by Thickson/Taunton then head out?

Canal Rd in the Holland marsh has decent lines, that is where the OPP sit for a speed trap. Have a radio or give your cell to someone in the group to TXT when they leave and when they pass #9.

I'll be there! the "spring" one this year was awesome!

I'm coming from Newmarket, So I'll either just meet at Webers or just wait for a bunch of Mini's to pass on the highway on ramp.

INDEED!

A big thanks out to Andrew from MINI Vaughan West for providing the MINI prizes for the poker run out of his own pocket! This was mentioned in the social media posts, but was missed here.

I hope you and your always-lovely lady had fun during our "once more with feeling" Rattler run on the way home.

Tata took a good shot of you hanging out in the back during the drivers meeting.
