Just in time for Valentines Day!
Here is another great reason to visit scenic Whidbey Island - the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour!

A great way to break up the winter blahs; grab your sweetheart and have some fun with MINIacs! Who can resist the combination of fine wines, spirits and chocolates, shopping, music, art, great dining, scenic vistas and curvy roads?

Join us along the scenic back roads for an full day adventure as we traverse counrty farmlands, cross deceptions pass, lunch in Coupeville and stop along the famous Whidbey Island Wine Trail. This is a Valentines themed adventure for everyone!

We will visit five venues, where local winemakers and distillers will be pouring a selection of exquisite hand crafted wines and spirits paired with specially selected chocolates.

Our day ends with a relaxing ferry ride from Clinton to Mukilteo (or you can drive back if you prefer)

Important: This event has requires a ticket to participate in the wine trail. $25 pre-purchase gets you tastings and chocolate at all 5 locations + a comemorative wine glass

Greetings from the new guy.
I sat across from Olivia at Zeeks the other night.
I'm still unsure if it's possible to pay my club membership in time for this event.
Can that be done on Saturday prior to starting the drive?
I don't mind paying an additional $25. To attend, even though
I'm allergic to alcohol, and don't care much for chocolate, but would enjoy getting to know
the attendees, and visit an area I've yet to explore.
My 2010 clubman is in need of a good run as well.
Is it possible to hear back from someone with answers to my queries?
That'd be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for creating a dynamic and informative association!

Hi Michael!

You do not need to pay your membership dues to join us! Please do come out.

Let me know if you plan on joining us for lunch too as our rallye master is trying to get a headcount.

Thanks for the good news my friend.
I'll be there!
My employee also has an R-55, and had that look of
surprised disappointment when I reported how much fun
the event at Zeeks was the other night.
I'll ask him if he wants to attend as well.
