EIM “Meet and S-cream, Part Quatre” and Detailing Day Redux – September 26th

Our annual “Meet and S-cream” ice cream social is back on the schedule, and it’s bigger and better than ever.

The EIM “Meet and S-cream, Part Quatre” and Detailing Day – REDUX will take place on Sunday, September 26 starting with our rendezvous on the south side of Iowa City at 1:00 pm. We will enjoy a short scenic drive south to Riverside, enjoy wonderful local ice cream at Greene Street Sweets, check out the unique Star Trek memorabilia at James T. Kirk’s future birthplace, spend quality time at an awesome group detailing party at the Steig Auto Spa, and finish up with a stop at the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort to show off our clean MINIs, raffle off a grand prize for the day, check out the local offerings, and enjoy a superb buffet dinner together (dinner at 6:00 pm).
