EIM Final 2010 Meet-n-Eat — Breitbach’s at Balltown — Saturday, November 13th

This final EIM Meet-n-Eat for 2010 is being held at the renowned Breitbach’s Restaurant in Balltown, IA on Saturday, November 13th. Lunchtime will be at 11:30 am but you’re encouraged to arrive 30 min early so we can command the good parking out in front of the building together for maximum visual impact.

This will be a great opportunity to reminisce about the fun times we’ve had together over the past year, and share some ideas for what we’d like to see on our 2011 event calendar. In addition, we plan to present the 2010 EIM Recognition Awards, a chance to recognize folks who deserve some acknowledgment (or a bit of friendly jesting). After lunch we plan to relocate our MINIs a couple hundred yards down the road at the Balltown scenic overlook for a few photo ops.

***We’ll need an accurate headcount to pass on to the restaurant in advance.***  Please RSVP prior to the Meet-n-Eat using any one or more of the following ways:  (1) clicking on the sign-up link in the EIM Event Calendar;  (2) posting a reply to the companion announcement in our NAM Discussion Forum;  and/or (3) adding a comment to this post by clicking on the comments link below the post title.

You can also follow along and join in the anticipatory chat in our NAM Discussion Forum.

All MINI enthusiasts are welcome. Looking forward to seeing you there!


As always, half the fun is getting to Balltown and coming home! While there is no planned drive as part of this event, the area has some of the best motoring roads in the state. Depending on the direction you’re coming from, consider including US-52 or C9Y in your route. Girl Scout Road between Peosta and Bankston is recommended if you’re coming up from the south (thanks to Linda and Tom for finding it!). Haberkorn Road between Sherill and Old Balltown is a twisty alternative to a portion of C9Y. Tollgate Road between Holy Cross and North Buena Vista is always fun too. Ad hoc departure rendezvous with other MINIs near your home for companion motoring to Balltown is encouraged.
