I saw a Yellow and black one driving on Burlington about 10 mins ago but couldn't get turned back around to see where they had gone to.

I would guess that is the couple that works at the Local food co-op
They made it to the Coralville Sonic gathering.

A couple weeks ago,after taking my mother-in-law to O'hare airport, I was in Schaumburg, Ill. at Patrick Mini test driving a couple MINIs. When I was pulling up to the exit to leave a really nice looking LiB MINI w/Johnson county plates + a Hawkeye emblem on the boot was leaving right in front of me.
Was it you ?

I think I'll devise some formal recognition for the existing group member who's first able to make this happen through their outreach efforts...to be presented at a future EIM event near you...
Maybe the first - my BRG/W MCS was "tagged" with a card in the Coralville New Pioneer parking lot on Sunday (11/11) and as a result, here I am.

I think you had it right on both accounts MChick! Wahoo!

I can't figure out who the "winner" is from this thread. Don't see a report of a BRG sighting on 11/11. GrnMnstr, can you finger the culprit based on the origin of the card you found? Who is the mystery tagger? (and OBTW, a warm welcome to you!)

For the record, I sighted a BRG/BRG MC parked on Water St. in downtown Decorah with Minnesota plates on the way to the airport yesterday.

I'm afraid it's a mystery to me - someone slipped an Eastern Iowa Mini card under my wiper - no further identification.

Hmm, this is the issue with my card they have complete anonymity , if you found it under your wiper after coming out of New Pi that was me


I'm going to need to write my name on the back of these

Ding, ding, ding, ding....

Looks like we have a winner! Congrats Rob! Your prize is forthcoming...

(maybe I should have handicapped this...you CR-IC and Quad-cities folks definitely had the potential sightings advantage over us small town folk. Ahhh, WTH...I'm just giddy that our tagging is starting to pay dividends for our group...)

Keep those cards coming...I mean, going...

I spotted a PW/B MC at 53rd & 18th in Bettendorf today. I hope the little note I left didn't fly away in todays winds.

It was just sitting there in parking lot. Thought about stopping in but didnt know if you worked the front counter or what, and I had to pick my wife up anyways so didn't have a lot of time. Next time I'll stop in and harass you.

Wow, three in one day and it isn't over yet. The first I was was at the Car Wash on 1st Ave in Cedar Rapids across from the Irish Democrat. Pure Silver/Black Roof with stripes on the side behind the doors. Employees told me it was the owners but that she wasn't around. The next one I saw was downtown just outside my apartment on 1st Ave and 2nd St. It was again pure silver/black roof and just after I saw that one I was turning and a Chili Red with white roof drove in front of me. Caught up to him and he told me his car had been vandalized and that he loved mine.
