NEW to Arizona!

Hi everyone, I would like to introduce myself, my name is Frank and I just moved from Rockford, IL (90 miles west of Chicago) I have only been here for just over a week now and I would like to see/meet some fellow MINIacs!

Can anyone let me know when is the next meet?

I also have a question............Is it normal that after being here for just over one week to have a rock crack a windshield this quick?.......that happened to me today somewhere on the 101

Thanks!
Capnmini

Welcome to Arizona. I'm 110 miles north of you in Prescott, but you have a great group in the Dynamic Mini Collective to drive with. They are good people and I wish I lived closer to them.

Rocks and windshields seem to be second nature here. I'm always careful to keep a lot of room in front, but we've had a couple of new windshields in our other cars over the years.

Mini N. Scottsdale is a great place, so say hi to them for me if you go in. They know me as the first in line for a Clubman waiting 2 years.

Enjoy the state. It's a good move!

Welcome to AZ!!! cloud10 is correct we have a very active and social club here in Arizona.

The Desert Rat Pack is having an ice cream gathering this Sunday night in central Phoenix. It is a great event to meet some of the members.

Here is a link to the event thread on our club forum. http://www.dynamicminicollective.org...pic.php?t=4810
Hope to see you on Sunday!!!

I am on my third windshield in two years. It is fairly standard with living here in AZ.
